Love my Vitamix!!
I make wonderful, healthy and delicious smoothies and I can even make some fantastic frozen adult beverages when my girlfriends come over for Girls Night In. I looked to purchase on the Vitamix website, shopped around at Costco and ultimately found the best value for dollar spent right here at QVC.com. I was able to get it with 6 easy payments figuring if I didn't use it much in the first month or two I could just return it for a full refund. Well, let me just say this, it will have to be pried from my hands. I absolutely LOVE it!! I use it almost everyday! I've used the cookbook recipes that come along with this mixer. The homemade hummus is really delicious and is a crowd favorite! The adult beverages are simple and quick to make and all my friends love the different drinks Recipes that are included. We have tried a handful of them over the last couple of months and have not been disappointed. All in all this was a great purchase. If you are Thinking about purchasing a Vitamix, you seriously will not be disappointed. I'm even considering buying the dry blade and extra container to do spices. Great kitchen appliance!!
Best Blender Award!
Scores 5 stars on every level. For anyone living alone (and who wants a sink full of dishes every morning), has a harried work schedule or just plain doesn't like to cook, this is the way to maintain a nutritious diet. My supercharged breakfast is:
pineapple juice (a Name brand) and NOT from concentrate,
TBS flax seed,
TBS chia seed
2 TBS pea protein (or a raw egg only because I have my own range free source),
1/2 a raw carrot,
slice of raw beet,
1/2 banana and
either strawberries, blueberries or 1/2 an apple.
No way would I take the time to cook or eat each individual item but I sure will drink this tasty, vitamin filled
'Nectur of of the gods'.
Lower watt blenders make a lumpy slurry. Vitamix liquifies.
It's true, too. It'll whip up a bowl of hot soup in a matter of minutes. Best blender ever!
Well worth the investment
I'm very pleased with my Vitamix. I use it mainly for smoothies but have also experimented with the soups with great results. My personal trainer told me to add protein powder to my smoothies to up the protein content. By increasing my exercise and changing my diet I have lost a lot of weight and the Vitamix has played a central role in that. Thank you QVC for offering this in a variety of colors (I have the espresso) and at a great price on Easy Pay!
An Amazing Machine
I lusted after a Vitamix for more than three decades - since my initial intro at a home show. I continued to put off a purchase due to the price until a younger colleague told me she'd bought one used online. That motivated me to re-investigate the brand and I am very grateful to her for bringing Vitamix back into my stream of consciousness. I decided I wanted one of these babies for Christmas! I did a good deal of research at Vitamix and major retailers. My husband suggested I check out QVC and he was SO right. QVC offered this Vitamix Creations II with the bells & whistles shown (+ a DVD with loads of fantastic recipes.) Since getting my Vitamix for Christmas 2014, I've enjoyed this awesome machine almost daily and know I'm getting all the goodness out of the fruits and veggies I pulverize. Having had a juice extractor in the past & absolutely hating the excessive waste of good nutrition, I feel so good about the nutrition I enjoy daily. This unit just fits under my kitchen cabinets-- another reason this model is so ideal! Thank you to QVC for offering this excellent deal -- and with a 5 year warranty!
Best product i have purchased from QVC..
I bought my Vitamix, April 2014, I love it.....best purchase ever...The smoothies come out just like the demonstration shows. I have made peanut butter, almond butter, ice cream, guacamole, bread crumbs, spaghetti sauce, salad dressings, and of course, smoothies...It's the BEST!!! I also have a Ninja, and it serves a purpose, but, doesn't compare to the Vitamix.
Best Purchase Ever!!
I bought my Vitamix over a year ago, but didn't open the box for some time ~ because I was afraid that it was going to be more complicated than I wanted to deal with. I finally got it out of the box, washed it and had made my first batch of peanut butter within the first hour of operation! I am so completely delighted with the Vitamix. Far from being complicated ~ it is SO easy to use, and does such a wonderful job. It is exactly as promised! I've only made peanut butter, regular fruit smoothies and "green" smoothies (trying to make those everyday), but I have plans to expand it's use. If you decide to buy a Vitamix ~ don't be afraid to open that box! You will be as happy with your purchase as I am: it's so easy to use, and so easy to clean!!
So worth it!
This January, I started a health journey. Green smoothies have become a way of life for me for breakfast, and for months, I'd been using a NutriNinja. Smoothies were tasty, but the 1000 watts certainly couldn't get through berry seeds nor could it smooth the texture of apples, oranges, etc. After eyeing the Vitamix for more than a year, I finally decided to take the plunge with the most affordable model on QVC. SO glad I went for it. The price tag is hefty, but it's more than worth it. My smoothies are smooth as silk! They're delicious and go down so easily. Looking forward to exploring what else my Vitamix can do. If you're on the fence, trust me! ..go for it. I'm thrifty, and I'm not sorry I made the purchase.
have been wanting one for a while have watched it for a long time on "in the kitchen with David" kept thinking about it and finally one day I just did it went ahead and ordered it and I love it, have only done smoothies so far, have only had it a week, but can't wait to explore the recipes in the book and try new things, but so far best big purchase I have made so far.
The two blenders in the garage are going in a yard sale ... along with my food processor and a juicer - all to be replaced by this workhorse! Sure, it's expensive, but if you add up the money on just those items plus the two or three other blenders I've had to throw out over the years, this expense may actually pay me back! The Vitamix works just as shown on air and the cookbook is very nice. I wish I had bought one of these sooner!
Definitely Not Worth the Price In My Opinion
I was so excited about this product when I ordered it, but when I got it and used it, I immediately knew I had overbought. In my opinion, this machine is clunky and odd looking, and not at all attractive on my counter, plus I don't think it works all that well. I returned it. Went out the next day and bought a Nutribullet and haven't looked back. This little product turns out smoothies quickly and easily and is all I need. It's easy to clean and use and I didn't have to take out a loan to buy it. I think that the advertising on the Vitamix product lulls you into believing that you need all this power to make nutritious drinks and smoothies. You don't. Don't be fooled. Spend your money on nutritious foods instead. Happy juicing!
Nothing Like A Vitamix
I have been thru the nutribullet and the ninja and the vitamix is number one for smoothies hands down....I use it for so many other things as well I hardly pull out the food processor any more
