Rated 5 out of 5 by Califcorkster Best Gift Ever
I purchased this as a gift for my daughter-in-law who is recovering from Breast Cancer. She just hated fruit and veggies and was told to incorporate more of these foods in her diets to help her battle her disease. Well, she now makes great smoothies and just loves the taste of foods she used to hate. She is doing so well now and I am so thankful that Vitamix was able to help her improve her diet.

There isn't much to say exept that Vitamix delivers. I have had mine for 5 years and it still works like the first day I received it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by elfiecat I finally have one.
I've coveted a Vitamix for ages. This year and with this nice easy pay, I got this model. OH MY GOSH - it really is everything they say. I had a Nutribullet that I used for healthy smoothies, and it broke after 10 months so I thought, just go for the Vitamix. It's just great, it really is. My smoothies (I use a lot of raw veg and fruit in mine) are way way better than they ever were in the Nutribullet. Not even close! Super velvety smooth! I was happily surprised to see that you can actually blend and heat hot soup in this machine too, which I can't wait to try. You can make ice cream and sorbet too! They send you a big fat recipe book with it, so you have tons of ideas right away. It's my Christmas present to me, and I love it.

I must say that the Vitamix is everything they claim it to be! It absolutely makes the best smoothies with no bits or grainy texture. Clean up is a snap usually, although swishing it out with a bottle brush occasionally guarantees a completely clean container. I must say I WAS a bit skeptical of the claims made about it....but must concur they are absolutely right! I know it is rather expensive....but this time you really do get what you pay for. I'm so pleased with its performance that I even ordered the dry blade container to make bread with today! So....I say...try it....you'll like it! A great appliance!!

I absolutely LOVE this machine! I highly recommend it and I'm glad to say that I have not regretted the decision to make the purchase. Initially, I had decided to get a "lower end" blender as I felt I wasn't ready to invest so much money in my blender. I'm really glad I changed my mind.
This is a great way to get more raw foods into your diet. It's fast and easy to clean. I also use it chop up onions and fresh herbs when I'm cooking. I can't say enough about this Vitamix. I am a customer for life.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CandiC Great Purchase
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?
Rated 5 out of 5 by CrashCourse Nothing else will ever measure up
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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Tree Hugger There Is Only One!
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.

Best appliance I ever purchased very powerful runs smooth and I called it a machine not a blender it has not met a challah ge it has not beat
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.
