I Love it

I aways ate lots of fruits and vegetables. This machine makes my lifestyle much easier. It is well worth the money. I must say I love it :)

Great, but not the best

great product, no other bran stands up to it. but for the same exact price you could get an extra 2 years on your warrantee and free shipping from target. Come on Vitamix your prices are outrageous

Buy It

This is one of the best things I own. It's amazing how much better a commercial grade blender is compared to a cheap blender. I purchased a reconditioned model - you get a great warranty and save a lot of money. Carrots, almonds, broccoli, bananas, etc, they all disappear into a smoothie.

Amazing Machine

Looks perfect and brand new. Use this daily. Makes the smoothest green smoothies, completely pulverizing leafy greens/cabbage. Great for hummus, nut butters, rice milk, hot soups, desserts, etc. Life saver for a vegan with a ton of food intolerances. Am absolutely in love. Thank you, Vitamix!

So Sad mine finally broke - 16 yrs old!

I bought my Vitamix 5000 @ Hickam AFB in 1998 after watching a demo. I LOVE it! I've had to contact support only 2 times & Vitamix people are the best! Mine broke tonight & I'm so sad! Except now I'm shopping for a replacement. I used it at least once a day - for 16 years. Can't beat that record!

I love my Vitamix!

I love my reconditioned Vitamix. I have used it almost daily for over a year now and no problems what so ever. So happy I finally chose to buy this blender.

So Glad I Finally Bought It!

This is perfect! Depite refurbished status, it appeared brand new and well-packaged. Performance has been perfect as well. I have made soups, ice cream, peanut butter, and perfect smoothies. Clean up is a breeze. Healthy!!!!! I will never go back to a different blender!

Changed my life. No other blender compares.

Have had my Vitamix for about a year, and use it every day. Turns out what your mother told you is true. Fruits and vegetables are good for you -- especially dark leafy green vegetables. Smoothies are the easiest way to eat such foods in sufficient quantity. They're also tasty, and easy to make.

Best kitchen appliance investment

I bought it Certified Reconditioned the only thing wrong with the blender is the tamper had a teeny tiny scratch. The blender looked brand new. My wife and I have been really putting the blender to work everyday. Making smoothies, whole fruit juices, and even soup.

By Far The Best On Market

Bought a refirbished 5200 over two years ago. Use it several times a day without fail. Love LoVE LOVE IT!!

Just returned Model 3600

Just traded in my 36 year old Vitamix for a refurbished 5200 model. When was the last time you had a blender for 36 years?

amAAAAAzing :)

I use it everyday to make a fruit and green smoothie. You can't use any other blender to make green smoothies. I'm a sports medicine physician, and I advise my patients and families to consider purchasing one. I'll be purchasing one for my parents.
