Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vitamix container I bought my Vitamix, a few months ago and was hoping to use it to blend nuts, even using a tamper didn't work. My Vitamix blender heats up quickly. I've tried with putting quite a bit of liquid in the container opening it several times to take a spoon to mix it hoping to get a smooth blend but I never seem to be able to get a smooth blend. I often get an error saying it is too hot. It's possible my blender has issues with it, and I have corresponded with Vitamix help services but haven't received much assistance beyond telling me how to use the blender. I have been waiting 10years to purchase a Vitamix and I'm quite disappointed and would not recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed! This was a very disappointing purchase. The blade lid is super heavy and its almost impossible to take it off the blending bowl which is too small and oddly shaped. Blending cup is narrow and not the best. I do enjoy my regular jar however this additional purchase was a major disappointment, its an absolute design disaster in terms of size and ease of use compared to Nutribullet (thats what we use for daily smoothies and other small quantity blending needs). We decided to give away Nutribullet so we would have one machine that can do everything but this was a mistake. I would love to return this set but i am guessing its been over a month and now it just sits there without being used.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from How did this pass product development? I love my Vitamix blender and had high hopes for this attachment. But it's horrible. I really can't understand how this got the "okay" for sale. For starters the instructions are not at all clear on how to put on the blender lid. There are tiny little clear arrows on the cup and the blender lid that you can barely see. I only knew they were there after I watched YouTube videos on how to do this. You have to line the arrows up perfectly in order for the base to recognize the attachment and blend, but it is EXTREMELY difficult to line up the arrows properly and once you do the lid is on so tight that it's next to impossible to twist it off after blending. Absolutely will not be keeping this. And Vitamix would have to completely change this product for me to purchase another.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT WORTH IT This tool is not worth the price. I bought it for purposes of making small portion nut butters or a quick shakes/smoothies etc. The blade for this tool is supposed to detect the base. NOPE... it doesn’t always detect, by the time it finally does, I could’ve blended and washed the pitcher. So the idea of having this as a QUICK tool to make smoothies or shakes, is definitely not there. I’m not sure of mine is faulty, but it sure acts it. The customer service have given me points on how to use it- I have followed it..but it still doesn’t detect as smooth as the pitcher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You WILL use this EVERYDAY I bought this as a part of a Costco bundle about a week ago and have used it EVERYDAY. No doubt that I will continue to use this attachment until the day it dies (which will be never because it's Vitamix). I am so excited to keep exploring different flavors of smoothies with the convenience of perfect portion sizes and fully blended smoothies in as little as 30 seconds! Definitely worth it if you're into smoothies.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So much potential, but critical design flaws This had amazing potential, but the design is terribly executed. In order to use it, you must tighten a threaded connection. Sounds easy, but it takes a lot of torque to tighten sufficiently for the blender to recognize and power on. If you have to open the cup to add more ingredients or water, it becomes much harder to tighten the blender base. Finally, the red gasket can gwt caught in the threads. If that happens, its near impossible to separate the blender base from the cup. That's the state of mine now. Don't be me, save your money until this is redesigned. For reference, I'm a relatively fit 32 year old male, and i bought this as a gift for my partner. It has stumped us both.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Design I purchased the cup attachment to be able to make single servings. in order to use the cup attachment you have to line up the blade lid with the cup ensuring that the arrows are directly lined up, which is extremely difficult. After 10 to 15 attempts I usually give up and use the bender pitcher. Very Disappointed by this expensive purchase

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient with easy clean up I was gifted a Vitamix for xmas this past year from my generous parents, and they also bought me this accessory set. At 1st I wasn’t sure it was necessary, but now i see there are great! For single serving preparation, this smaller vessel w/its own blade, helps to prevent me from adding too many ingredients, then wasting because its too much. It also helps as a time saver, as blend and out the door. No extra clean up of the larger mixing vessel the Vitamix comes with. Not too sure the best ways to use the smaller piece yet, as its seems like a pretty small container to prep things in,...ideas?
