My blender can beat up your blender.
This Vita-Mix has what the regular Vita-Mixes have and more. It has the power to liquefy and puree anything as well as the ability to chop and dice as well. It really helps to watch the included videos as well as the videos on the Vita-mix site as well to learn how to do everything with this blended. There are two things that set this apart from the other Vita-mixes. First, it has a pulse function. This comes in handed when chopping and dicing. Second, it has 3 different timed programs. These programs let you start the blender up and not have to watch it. This thing makes the smoothest smoothies you ever had. I do have to warn you though, this thing is a little louder than your typical blender, but you don't have to run it as long in order to get the results you want. Finally, clean up is a snap. Fill it halfway with warm water and a drop of soap, run the smoothie program, rinse and you're done.23 of 26 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
So happy with my Vitamix purchase
I was a little skeptical about spending $500 for a blender, but after having the Vitamix for a couple of months I am convinced I got a bargain. I use this thing every day for smoothies, juice, and ice cream. It does an amazing job every time because the motor is so powerful.
I considered buying the more basic Vitamix model, but am so happy I spent a little more for this one with the presets. The smoothie setting is great - just turn it on and walk away and it shuts off when it's done. I use this time to clean up and get my cup and straw ready so I can start drinking as soon as it's done ;-)
The last thing I will mention is cleanup - this is really the best part. Just rinse the container, fill it to the 5 oz line (there are measurement markings on the side), add a drop of dish soap, and turn the machine on the auto smoothie setting. In 2 minutes it'll be done and completely clean! Just a quick rinse and drop on the drying rack. I've never had to do anything more than this to get it clean!
Overall, great product and great build quality. I am confident this thing will last for many years.
My favorite kitchen tool!
Can an appliance be life changing? In the case of the Vitamix blender, absolutely.
Do not waste your money on a juicer that extracts when you can use the Vitamix to pulverize vegetables (and fruits) so all that "good for you" fiber is consumed. I am not a person who likes vegetables although I realize how important they are for optimal health. Drinking raw vegetables is the most practical way to consume power foods such as kale, parsley, spinach, berries, etc. and, with the Vitamix, drinks come out silky smooth.
I love the presets on this blender as well as the pulse feature. The cost increases, but I feel they are worth it. You simply push the button and walk away in most cases. The Vitamix makes the best soft-serve ice cream and even cooks hot soup.
We use our Vitamix at least 6 times a day. The 7 year warranty gives me peace of mind and I feel good buying an American product from an American company with a reputation for impeccable customer service. My only regret is that I didn't buy one years ago.
