You can’t go wrong with this machine, but no need to upgrade from earlier models.

I was very interested in trying this model Vitamix as I currently own an older model (the 5000) and have been drooling over the newer features. No, there was nothing at all wrong with my 5000 and it still worked perfectly but I really liked the newer container with the better handle grip…and the grass is always greener, right?

All you need to know and BONUS TIPS that no one will tell you , see the full review 🙂

I bought Vitamix (Reconditioned) 45 days ago and I am loving it. I am basically doing smoothies for my breakfast. Didn’t try the soups or frozen deserts yet. It blends so quickly and smoothly. When I got the Vitamix , I did a test for black specs i.e to run plain water at high speed for 30-60 sec to see if there are any black specs/particles. I did find those black specs and I contacted customer service immediately. They responded quickly and told me that sometimes those specs are found in some jars and they replaced me with a new container. And the new container passed the test .. wohooo so happy 🙂 Of course the shipping took some time but hey I got a problem free container that’s enough for me.Then I started my everyday smoothies and I have so many recipes to try like soups , peanut butter , frozen ice cream but I know that vitamix is not going to disappoint. The clean up is so easy, just add 1 drop of soap with 1.5 cups of water and run it on high for 10 secs , that’s it so simple , after that rinse it with plain water. Vitamix comes in a sturdy packaging along with recipe book, CD and a tamper tool.

Buying a reconditioned Vitamix Standard Program machine is a great option. Not only is the price significantly discounted, but the only measurable difference between it and a new machine is that the warranty is five instead of seven years.

AHHHMAZING! You will know this as this 5200 Vitamix Blender

Okay, I am so ready to start the war – Vitamix vs Blendtec vs Ninja vs Bullet (any bullet, nutribullet, baby bullet). NOBODY rocks a blender like Vitamix. This will be my FIFTH Vitamix (and I own the nutribullets and the Ninja and I SCOFF loudly at Blendtec). Here’s the story… My family owned the stainless steel Vtiamix blenders – from the Danbury Fair days! YES – the early 70’s back when there was a REVERSE and the stainless steel container had a spigot! When I moved, I got to take that. A year later I picked up ANOTHER stainless steel 70’s Vitamix at a church fair – for – wait for it – 50 cents!! When I had my first baby 10 years ago, I sold both Vitamixes on ebay to generate the cash to get a brand new Vitamix 4000 series. And we made EVERY single serving of baby food that our two kids ate. At $1++ a tiny serving for organic food – we blended the heck out of every organic squash, rice, banana, apple, cherry, broccoli, YOU NAME IT – we blended it – froze it into cubes and saved THOUSANDS of dollars in baby food. Can I just tell you that my kids are still on p. 1 of their pediatricians booklet – NEVER SICK – food was the key!

Exceeds my expectations

1st reviews 4/2/2017: Product was delivered fast as usual with Amazon. It came delivered in a brown box with Vitamix written on it.

Enough power for any task, you just might need earplugs

I make smoothies for breakfast every day and also love to make milkshakes for dessert, so I’m a heavy blender user. I probably use the blender 10 times a week more often than not. I’ve lusted after a Vitamix for some time, but finally pulled the trigger and took a chance on this refurbished model. After more than a year and a half, I can say I’m very happy I did.

Love It!

Wow! What a great machine. Wish I’d bought one long ago. It lived up to’its reputation with one recipe. I make vegan mayonnaise with no oil for a friend. I made in my B & D blender and, as it’s made with cashews, it turned out chunky. Now chunky peanut nut butter is great but not mayonnaise. Next, I tried my food processor. Got grainy mayonnaise. Got my Vitamix and the first thing I did was make cashew mayonnaise. Perfect. Now, my family prefers the vegan version over store bought mayo. If you have one, by all means, use it for more than smoothies. It makes great smoothies but does so much more.

Single-Serving Superiority? Maybe.

Believe it or not, I’ve heard the taller profile container is better at making smoothies for one person. I can see how that would be: A single or double serving of ingredients rises higher above the blades in the taller container than it does in the shorter container. That being so, the contents aren’t as prone to splash the upper walls of the container when those blades really get going. I’m not exactly sure how much of a difference that really makes since this is my first premium blender, but I was steered towards this model by my nutrition advisor for that very reason. I’ve also read and watched (on YouTube) reviews offering the same opinion on the issue. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not here saying this is “better” than the flagship 750 Pro or the 7500. The under-the-counter friendly models look better for sure, and they have a number of improved features which make them worth the extra bucks, but none of those things matters to me. My blender sits in on the island in the middle of my kitchen and I’m making smoothies for just me. I’m very happy with this purchase and feel that for the price, it would be very hard to do better.
