This is the same price, package and warranty that you get if you buy directly from Vitamix. I was tempted to rate it only 4 stars, because it is way overpriced. With an Amazon Store card, it's interest-free IF you pay it off within 6 months -- and that's vital, because whopping interest applies if you don't. Vitamix has a payment plan, too, but you have to pay more when you order and have only 3 months after that to pay it off. So Amazon's deal breaks it up into 6 smaller payments, which makes it the most affordable way for many of us to get one of these machines. There is nothing else quite like them. Blentec is the only other model to even consider, but I don't know if it has variable speeds, too.
I just got delivery of my new VitaMix blender (to replace an NSF-rated KitchenAid Commercial blender [ahem, that's NSF, not NSFW...]) and immediately put it to work.
I threw in all that I could find, which was Kale, Celery, Carrots, Daikon, Cabbage, Ginger root, Strawberries, Pear, Apple, Orange, dried Apricots, Prunes, Flax seed, Psyllium husk, raw Almonds, raw Pine Nuts, Tumeric (ground), Ascorbic Acid, plenty of ice and some water.
I did leave out the Canteloupe; clearly no more room at the inn... (I had to force the lid down to allow it to snap back on.)
The initial mixture was mud pot thick. With the blades racing underneath at 240 mph the top of the mix sat insanely still, with just an occasional belch (signal?) of air slowly surfacing through the verdant depths.
Adding a bit of water did the trick, liberating the brew into a whirling pot of creamy veg and fruit. Not a trace of grit or seed left - everything was pulverized into a very enjoyable, and (mostly) healthy, shake. (Apple seeds do contain a trace of cyanide.)
So as good as the old KitchenAid was, it does't hold a candle to my new VitaMix. In the KitchenAid the same drink would not have been as creamy, with telltale bits of seed and fiber left behind. It's a bit of a splurge, but would've been much less so if I had bought it several blenders ago!
Recommended to all!
Easy to clean, love the variable speed option, zero issues after a year and a half of consistent use.
Honestly, before I owned one I never would have spent this kind of money on a blender. Now, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one... if I didn't already own one.
The Vitamix is simply an amazing blender. I use it everyday at least twice a day. Mostly for green smoothies and protein superfood smoothies but also for broccoli creams, pulverizing cinnamon sticks or making humus and cashew spread instead of using cream cheese! It CAN do it all!
It's easy to clean (just soapy warm water run it on high for about a minute and then rinse) and is always ready for another smoothly, cream or spread!
I have also put its warranty to the test as I have had two cups break down from constant use. But Vitamix customer support couldn't be easier to deal with! They simply asked me what's wrong and then sent me a replacement cup which usually arrives within a week. The first time I panicked and got a Ninja because I didn't know how I was going to make it without my smoothies even for a single day! But nothing comes close to the Vitamix. The veggies are well mixed with the fruits and all the seeds and powders I put on my smoothies and it gets blended into a velvety smooth drink. Not the case with other brands I've tried.
So if you're serious about superfood smoothies, clean eating or just convenient ways to make liquid meals or snack spreads Vitamix is the way to go!
