14 years owner ordering a new one. Indispensible!

After 14 years of hard consistent use, my Vitamix engine was a bit tired. The vitamix company offered me a wonderful trade in price as well as a reasonable repair price. I took the trade in option as I have found the Vitamix to be Indispensible. Love IT!

Better than my ninja

This blender is AWESOME!!!!! I always thought my Ninja would be good enough but after getting this for my birthday I'm not gonna use any other blender but this one...blends everything super fine to where there is no itty bitty pieces that you can taste :) I LOVE my Vitamix 5200!!!!!!!!

appliance perfection

We LOVE our Vitamix 5200. We have had it for 3 years and it still runs perfectly and it is super easy to clean. I love the simplicity of the dials. No digital read-out, just a true quality product. We have 3 daughters and we make smoothies daily and our Vitamix has never let us down.

I say " I love it" everytime I use it

2 hours ago I put in two whole, huge oranges , peels removed , fresh pineapple, fresh mango and 5 ice cubes. Awesome tropical drink in 30 seconds. Smooth and delicious. This morning I had a carrot , apple , orange...all large pieces. Same great result as above. I LOVE IT !

Needs improving

Quite expensive for a plastic caraffe and very noisy machine. i also dislike the touch of the black top. Great concept, poor result.

Love it!

We love our Vitamix! Works fantastic on blending whole fruits and veggies for smoothies, even when it is packed full. Thanks for making an excellent product!

Great for Soup Even How

A friend suggested I use her Vitamix 5200 to blend a soup. My experience in the past with "blenders" and hot soup is the soup heats the air and it expands blowing the lid off and spraying hot soup everywhere. I reluctantly tried it and it made AMAZING soup, even 3/4 full! Thanks

I Am A Loss For Words

I had to choose between joining an expensive weight-loss program, or taking the money and investing it in a Vitamix, a product that I have been wanting for YEARS. I took the risk and invested in the blender. I have not regretted one day. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT and it is well worth the money.

Everything but the carafe

Nothing beats the Vita-Mix for function and stamina. My concern is the carafe. It is difficult to get hummus or peanut butter out of the tall one, and I don't like plastic. I hope they can come up with a glass carafe that can be cleaned more easily. Otherwise, I find this to be a quality product.

Since 2003 And Still Going

We bought a Vitamix C- Series in 2003 to make smoothies. We now make very healthy green drinks to replace one of our meals in a day. We love our Vitamix so much that we find ourselves talking about it more than we should! We have never had any problem with it. Love it!!!

5200 fine overall but...I am not using it.

I loved my Vitamix 5200, but worried about the plastic container, "BP-free." but all plastic leaches carcinogens. This machine is so expensive, why not use glass!!? Back to my osterizer blender with a glass mixing container.


I have used the 5200 daily for four years with no problems. I also purchased one for each of my 2 daughters, refurbished, 2 years ago. They love them. Buying another for husband's daughter. Best kitchen tool I've ever owned and never wish to be without it.
