I went back and forth about purchasing the Vitamix. I saw the infomercial numerous times but could not allow myself to spend "that much money" on a just a blender. I had my mind set on the Vitamix or Ninja. The one thing that swayed my decision is when I saw an online review of both products. The Vitamix really mixed the greens in the smoothie so you would not have to chew them. I must say this is a great buy. It makes the best smoothies. Even my toddler will gobble up a green smoothie loaded with kale and carrots. I can not get the picky child to "eat" any vegetables but she doesn't have a problem drinking them. I have not used for anything else other than smoothies, and banana ice cream this was the main reason I purchased the Vitamix. The size it perfect it fits underneath the cabinets on my counter. One tip I found out was to make 1 smoothie at a time do to the size of the blender container. It is best to let the frozen fruit thaw for a few minutes. Mix your raw greens with liquid first for a few minutes then add fruit.

I have this Vitamix and think it is great. Makes great smoothies. I would like to ask, How can I get another bottle?

Hands-down the single best thing I've ever bought for my kitchen. After leaving foodservice management where I had access to these every day, I quickly found that I simply couldn't go back to consumer-grade blenders. I use mine a minimum of once daily, but more often than not it gets used two or three times a day and the machine shrugs it off like its nothing.

Love, love, love it. So easy to clean. Love the color. It's everything you said it would be. I make healthy smoothies every night for desert and juices for work lunches. Lost four pounds since I got it.

Now I realize what all the fuss is about. After years of regular blenders, small blenders, and a less expensive power blender, I finally decided to take the plunge and buy the Vitamix Creations. Boy, am I glad I did. This is truly an investment in health and wellness. I can't begin to explain how it pulverizes fruits and vegetables for smoothies, make soups, everything that you see in the presentation. I highly recommend this. Not only is it great for making healthful meals, it is so much fun and gets you back to feeling that you can experiment with new recipes. Absolutely love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarthaB I use mine every single day
I bought this model a year or so before deciding to go vegan, and even then I used it quite a bit. Now that I've completely changed my diet, this thing gets used every single day, often more than once.
I make my own almond butter (note: must use roasted almonds; raw ones just turn into almond meal/flour). Soooo good.
I make smoothies that include spinach that you just cannot taste.
I "cream" soups with raw cashews.
I make salad dressings without oil -- just using nuts for the fat.
Someone returned theirs because it "didn't pulverize half an apple." Well, half an apple is not enough material for the machine to work with. The blades are about an inch or so off the floor of the jar -- the food can't be below the blade! Of course it wasn't going to pulverize half an apple!
This is definitely one of the best investments I've ever made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat800 ONLY ONE DOWNSIDE
to this item, if you make anything that doesn't pour out say like ice cream. any of the butters, etc., you cannot get all of it out because its around the blades at the bottom. It would be nice if Vita Mix designers/engineers could solve the one and only thing I see wrong with this machine. I still give it 5 stars because it operates amazingly. I did not purchase this exact pack-up but I do own this item, just a different book and container.

I am not one to believe in paying a lot of money for certain things. A blender over a $100 definitely falls into that category, but as hesitant as I was, I did. This is the blender of all blenders. Quiet, easy clean-up, and does a wonderful job. If you're on the fence about it, do it. You will have no regrets especially considering the option to pay it out over time.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris in Va Watch the dvd
At first few tries I did not like this machine. I then watched the DVD and found out that the recipes in the book had some differences. Book said increase speed slowly, DVD says quickly, big difference, when I chopped onions the book said put onions in machine and then turn on. The DVD said and showed start machine and then add onion or whatever you are chopping, big difference. Making the frozen yogurt and chopping onions and carrots came out much better doing it the DVD way. I will try squash soap today.

After owning several blenders in the past, I was torn whether or not to buy this one because of the price. I don't usually buy things this expensive without seeing it in person and being able to touch it. But, QVC has a very simple return policy AND this thing comes with a 5-year warranty! Anyway, got it delivered and couldn't wait to try it. Long-story-short, I've owned this blender now for about 3 weeks - using it every other day - and very happy with the results! From basic fruit smoothies and Iced drinks to hot soups - everything seems to be working as designed. Though this model was a little more expensive because of the variable speed, it was well-worth the extra money and definitely outperforms ANY blender I've had in the past! Let's hope it continues to be such a great performer!
