K30741 - Vitamix Creations II 10 in 1 Blending Machine w/48oz Jar
Down 12# in 14 days
April 1, I started using my Vitamix to blend kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, lemon & ginger root. I drink 3-4 glasses a day of this mix adding strawberries, blueberries, or any fruit, results after 14 days, I have lost 12#'s & 2 inches. Continuing for atleast another week. Could not have done it with out my vitamix!!
Not for me
If you like quality juice this is not for you. It makes a small amount of thick juice which I had to thin with water. The soups are good, but if you have to cook the vegetables first it is easier to use a hand blender. Why change to another container.
As for chopping I find a small chopper better.
The smoothies and frozen desserts are good, but this was not my reason for buying the Vitamix.
I have put the Vitamix in the cupboard and returned to my juicer.
LOVE IT and use it every day!!
I just looooove this machine and use it every single day. It sits on my kitchen counter and makes the yummiest drinks, shakes, soups - all in a jiffy - with super easy cleanup. This saves me soooo much time - as I don't have to sit there and peel and chop everything - just put it in the blender - whiz and voila - you will have the yummiest tasting fresh fruit or vegetable juice, soup - anything. I can't tell you how much I love it!!
Making Vegetable and Fruit Smoothies w/Almond Milk is a breeze. Does the job.
I LOVE my Vitamix
I have been waiting 10 years to purchase a Vitamix! I would not bring myself to spend $$$ on a blender, however over the 10 years I had 2 $100 blenders to stop working on me, finally I came across Vitamix on QVC and on the Easy Pay plan and within seconds I made my long awaited Vitamix purchase. It's been 3 months now and I have been using my Vitamix weekly. I am glad I bought the 48oz, there's only 2 of us which I am making smoothies for and if I need to do a larger batch of soup, its no problem, 2 batches are done before one big batch on the stove top. This is a "work horse" for your kitchen. Do use your Vitamix for all of your mixing & blending and some cooking needs. It's not just for smoothies! It's built to last and I have many friends who own one and have had their machines for years and still works great.
I wish I had ordered this years ago! It is a great way to get fresh fruits/veggies in us. I add my supplement powders to it for a super drink! The soups are awesome too.
Glad I finally tried Vitamix
At first i really thought this was an over priced blender. I was soooo wrong. LOVE IT IS MADE IN USA!!! That and it being a TSV with free shipping was the reason we decided to try it. We have used it ALOT!!! Tried a few of the recipes in the book that came with it. They were VERY good!! Did some of our own fruit shakes that came out wonderful. The best thing i like about it is it pulverizes everything if you want it to. I hate drinking something with seeds or skins that you have to chew, this machine blends everything to a silky consistency. Can't wait for the summer again to make those great frozen drinks. The ONLY negative i can say is.....i wish that the recipe book had the nutrisional information.
Best Q purchase ever!
I debated buying this for a long time because of the price and I wasn't sure if I would get my money out of it. Well, I've used it almost every day since I first got it about 3 weeks ago... making everything from fresh tomato sauce to peanut butter to applesauce, soups, and roasted pepper alfredo sauce. This is a great machine... try it, you won't be sorry.
I have been wanting one of these machines for years. I finally ordered when it was the TSV. I am disappointed with the quality and performance of this machine. First, my protein shakes were no better/smoother than what my $50 blender was doing. I also made soup twice. I had purchased peanuts to make peanut butter and almonds to make almond milk but never got the chance. The motor stopped working while I was making potato cheese soup. Less than two weeks old and completely inoperable! Needless to say, it is going back and if QVC wants me to trust them and continue to buy things from them, they will not charge me $10.95 for the return postage of this piece of junk!
Oh My Goodness...where Have U Been All My Life!!!
I've had my share of "blenders" over time, but this takes the cake...and can mix it too! I make smoothies every morning n this just sits out on my counter...I "sold" the Vitamix to my son n law n he purchased one...he LOVES it, n experiments with it making all kinds of his own concoctions with it...he loves it so much, that we got him the dry blade for his birthday...
Worth every Pennie. This machine is amazing. Makes being healthy easy. The ice cream I made was wonderful. Makes soup quickly and you can taste the vegetables better than you would boiling on a stove. Best purchase of the year for me and maybe a life time. Very pleased!
Just received my vitamix. Used it twice. Absolutely performs as shown on tv. Very well made and comes with beautiful cookbook! Worth every penny and it's made in the USA!!!
