Vitamix Creations GC 48oz. 12-in-1 Variable Speed Blender
Vitamix is awesome! I even put an actual avocado seed in my green smoothie and couldn't even tell. I will try to make it simple for you:
Costs- First of all, the flex pay helps make this very affordable. But even still, think about how many blenders you have purchased. I know I had purchased at least 3 or so in the last 5-7 years or so. Could have had a vitamix. The reality is that Americans spend huge sums of money on weight loss programs and pills. We spend hundreds of dollars eating artery clogging foods! Spend that money on something good for you!
Quality- I didn't want to risk putting out more money on a subpar unit- so I brought a vitamix. My fave thing is the clean up. Blades are built into the blender cup with vitamix. No leaking either!!! I was tired of having to chomp on green smoothie bits my other blender left behind. No more of that now!
Multifunctional- we have made smoothies, lemonade (with skins), alcoholic drinks. But I was amazed at how this blender can function as a food processor. Chopped carrots and celery in seconds! I can't wait to try hot soup next!
Easy to use.
I could go on and on and on but I'm glad I went for it and you will be too!!!!
i love my vitamix.. I use it almost everyday... worth the price and the easy pay makes an item that usually is not affordable affordable.
This is the most amazing thing in the world!
I have turned so many people onto the Vitamix. It is the best thing that ever happened to me. I barely every cooked before, it was too much work, the Vitamix makes it effortless. I make things from scratch now. I've given away all my other appliances all I need is my Vitamix. I make soups, dips, sauces, pancakes, whip cream, muffins, bread, chopped salads, coleslaw, sorbet, tiramisu! I never did any of that stuff before the vitamix. Ever! this machine will change your life. I drink vegetable smoothies now! It's a game changer when it comes to your health. Just buy it. You have EZ Pay and 30 days to try it. It will change your life! I give these as wedding gifts now!
Super smoothie and soup maker....easy to use and cleanup. Primarily used for healthy smoothies, I've used frozen fruit prepackaged in zip locks for individual servings.
After each use, the motor has a slight burning-oil odor...again, slight but noticeable.
My 16 year old daughter loves to makes smoothies after sports!!
I'm in love!!
WOW!! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this machine! It is probably the best purchase I've made in years! I've wanted a Vitamix for quite some time but hesitated because of the cost! After using it, I have only one question...what took me so long? It is awesome and believe me, it's worth every penny!
Best Purchase I Have Made With QVC
Thank you, THANK YOU!! We love our Vitamix. I have purchased other machines and they pale in comparison to this machine. We have had our Vitamix for one month and have used it EVERYDAY!! The instructions are easy to follow. The recipes are practical. And clean-up is a sinch. The machine really does all the work. Don't hesitate on this purchase!!
I've been watching this blender for a long time and did not want to spend the money but finally realized this is a good way for me and my family to get our fruits & veggies every day. I finally got the cinnamon color on a TSV which I wanted in a 48oz so it could fit under my kitchen cabinets and QVC made it affordable. I've only tried smoothies and one milkshake but they are coming out great and enjoyable. I plan on trying soups and icecream soon. Only reason for 4 stars the lid is sometimes hard to get on and off.
I love this machine. It is not "an over-priced blender" like some people have said to me. I use this fabulous machine at least twice a day for smoothies, making soups or cocktails. Try the whole fruit margarita recipe - you'll never use a mix again!! I would say if you're even thinking about getting this machine, stop thinking about it and do it! It's awesome! My family says I could sell Vitamix because I talk about it all the time.
Fun Kitchen Tool
I ordered in white and it looks lovely in my kitchen. So far, I've only used to make smoothies and milkshakes and find it works like a charm :-). I'm very impressed and thrilled it's made in USA. I'm looking forward to trying more recipes. I have one problem - this Vitamix is designed to fit under kitchen cabinets. However, my house was built in 1967 and this Vitamix does not fit under the cabinets. So, I have to keep it stored in my pantry which may lead to "out-of-sight out-of-mind".
We hemmed and hawed about buying a blender this expensive for literally, years. Finally, after spending 100's of $$ on other blenders that claimed to work just as well and getting very tired of chewing our smoothies ... we caved.
We bought now and from the Q because of the Easy Pay as well as the option to use until end of January before returning.
We truly didn't believe this would do what it claimed. It DOES!!!! We can make a healthy smoothie that is truly smooth. Smooth ice, liquefied kale, parsley, apples. No more coring apples just chop into 6ths and blend. it's amazing.
In addition to the incredible liquefying function it cleans itself!!! We have used it at least one time daily since we got it, sometimes several times daily. Today, after making spaghetti sauce in it my DH informed me that we need to keep it. Not because of the ease with which it sauced the tomatoes but because it was ridiculously easy to clean!!
The price still floors me but you can tell this is not the cheaper blenders you can get at the big box stores. It's weighty. The pitcher is made of a different plastic that is thick and doesn't feel at all fragile. The lid is a very thick almost flexible rubber-type. The whole thing just feels like it will last. It's also backed with a 5 year warranty.
This Vitamix GC can make a truly smooth smoothie in about a minute and half, including blending the ice like those blenders in the bars.
We are keeping it. Anyone want to buy some slightly used blenders by other makers?
I love the turquoise color so much I am now changing my kitchen color to coordinate. I have only made smoothies so far and it works great. My daughter works at a restaurant and she uses one and was giving me some helpful hints.
AMAZING! Worth every penny
I'm so thrilled I broke down and finally bought this. Adding raw fruits and veggie smoothies to my diet has been so great. QVC got it to me quickly and the easy pays,made it affordable. Everyone needs one. I convinced my parents to spend the money. Their blender doesn't smooth like the vitamix. Worth every penny. When I decide to upgrade, I will hand this down to my niece and she is excited to get it. a million thank yous.
