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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by turnerfd Not too bad.....
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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Molley Best purchase ever
I have tried several blenders and I must say the vitamix blender is by far the best. Consistent in blending mixtures evenly and fast.
Rated 4 out of 5 by itasay 10 days and it's LEAKING!!! :(
I love this machine...it's incredible being able to drink green smoothies every day - my 7 year old even loves it. Amazingly easy way to eat raw. My vitamix starting leaking tonight. I am returning it to qvc and reordering. I am SO disappointed that I will be without it for a week until my new order arrives. I hope that my leak was just a fluke since vitamix is known to be such a quality machine. I hope that this qvc model isn't a lower quality product. It appears as though the nut retainer loosened from the container.
Rated 5 out of 5 by texaschicka LOVE IT!!!
Initially I was put off by the price, but after taking a chance, I will never be without one. I love this machine. It makes the best smoothies, milkshakes and more. Every recipe in the cookbook that was included has been great. My husband and kids love it too. The easy clean up is amazing. It takes me 5 minutes from smoothie to clean again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreekGirl01 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!!
