Vitamix 5200 Super 64oz Variable Speed Blender w/Dry Container
Best Investment Ever
I've been considering buying a Vitamix for a long time, but it was so expensive that I kept putting it off. Then when I stopped eating meat and started eating healthier six weeks ago, I decided to make the investment and am glad I did. Had difficulty deciding which Vitamix to buy, but after reading multiple reviews I decided on the 5200. With the lid it is about 2 inches too tall to fit under the counter, but with the dry container it does fit.
I've made smoothies, peanut butter (tastes MUCH better without the additives), bread and many vegetarian foods. There is nothing this blender can't do - it purees, chops, mixes, makes soups, frozen foods, etc. and has so much power I can't see ever burning it out - unlike cheaper blenders and food processors. I use it at least daily and most often several times daily. And with the 7-year warranty, it is priceless.
Use it Daily!
I received this last July and have used it daily ever since, thanks for all the recipes and the product works just as advertised!
Vitamix 5200 Super 64oz Variable Speed
I haven't had my vitamix for 1 month yet, but I know I love it! It whips out smoothies from frozen fruit ultra fast and pulverizes the seeds from raspberries and blackberries (ya know the ones that can end up at the bottom of your glass when you use a bargain blender) and I enjoy smoothies so much more now than before. I'm waiting on wheat berries so I can try out grinding my own flour, can't wait to compare it to my Nutrimill grain mill. Oh and if you like your smoothies really cold, make sure you use ice with your frozen fruit, the Vitamix is so powerful, it brings the temp of frozen fruit down noticeably by the time it's blended the fruit. It also comes with a 7 year warranty, and you can buy an additional 10 year warranty through the Vitamix company. I've never heard of a blender lasting 7 years, let alone 17 years. That's an awesome peace of mind to have for such an expensive kitchen tool.
I loooooove my Vitamix! Best kitchen appliance I have ever purchased for myself! Great deal, shipped fast great payment plan.... MOST OF ALL IT HELPS ME ACHIEVE MY WEIGHT LOSS AN HEALTH GOALS!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE MY VITAMIX!!!
I have had this for a couple years now and can say that I luv it. I make great smoothies and luv to grind up my own flour so that I can do baking experiments at home. I live in a small town in Alaska that is 300 miles from a major city with all of its perks so having a machine that can make specialty flours, blendies and a multitude of other jobs and items is a godsend. Keep up offering these great machines online.
I love my Vitamix
Great investment!! Shipped very fast in great condtion. I now enjoy my green smoothies so much better because the Vitamix makes them a lot smoother. I'm looking forward to a more healthy lifestyle and trying new recipes!
Thanks Vitamix, I'm a customer for life!!
You won't be sorry!
This Vitamix I've had since 2011. There are so many reasons why you should purchase! If you are at all into raw/ health foods.If you are tired of cheaply made blenders burning out. If you want to help put some cash back into the U.S. economy. This is made right here and I love it! This does so much for me. No more smoothie bar. No more store bought protein shakes. Even make frozen fruit creams (no dairy included if you don't want). Raw soups, and pie crusts and fillings. You control the ingredients, not some factory. 7 years warranty and I have NOT had a problem. Love this so much I had to be sure dear old mommy got one too. I could go on and on but you wouldn't know what it could do for you until you tried for yourself. I feel no kitchen is complete without it. When this is on ITKWD I always tune in. It's so amazing! Try one and give the gift of health to yourself. You will not be at all sorry!
Love this vitamix!
My husband and I are soooo happy we decided to try this. We have had ours for a few months & use it nearly every day for raw veggie smoothies, soups, nut butters and so much more. My husband was not happy to spend this much money until we had it in our kitchen and he saw how well it worked. He is now a BIG fan. It sounds like the couple of people who are giving one star have not read the manual to learn why they are having the problems they are describing.
Best Kitchen Appliance
Save money by investing in one blender that does so much instead of wasting money on blenders that burn out or multiple appliances that this one replaces! I have owned mine for three months, use at least once a day and I don't know what I did without it !
Best Blender Ever
Have purchased many name brand cheaper blenders in the past that don't last nor do what I want. Save up and get this one. We make smoothies, soup, etc. 5 people in the house and always some extra kids. It is worth the cost.
Don't Delay...Buy Today!!
I bought the CIA vitamix and received it last week...its most like this model. I debated for the past 3 years about buying one and finally took the plunge. I wish I hadn't waited so long. This thing is the BEST. The day I got it I made amazing apple juice (get the filtration bag if you don't want to drink the pulp) and I made some super yummy chicken tortilla soup and then ice cream. It does it all. Its a bit intimidating with the power but with the big warranty there's no worry about breaking it...which I think would be very hard to do.
I did a ton of research too and this won me over. I'm a gadget geek but in my appliances I like simple and this is simple but so wonderful too.
Well Worth The Money!
I love everything about this Vitamix! I mainly bought it for smoothies. However, I use it for everything and everything. I make my own peanut butter, ice cream, and grind my own meat. I no longer need my food processor. I'm so happy I finally made the purchase!
