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!
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!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smeagain 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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by vermont57 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!

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!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Edie725 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn100 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!!
