Cloudy to clear!

I bought my Vitamix in 1996. The ollny problem I have had has been the cloudy look on the side of the container. I was going to purchase a new one until I read about soaking it in white vinegar. Works perfectly!!!! Thanks for the tip.

Love my Vitamix!

I make smoothies, applesauce, flour & I will NEVER buy nut butter again! I even make my own Nutella-type spread with dark cocoa. You make an excellent product!

Customer service

Just talked to Laurie in customer service about buying a new container since I cracked mine by dropping it. She was very helpful and I could not be more pleased with my whole vitamix experience. You will never regret having a Vitamix!

Tip for Cloudy due to water hardness

I had my VM 5200 Super container since 2009. I do a white vinegar rinse. I allow the vinegar to set less than 5 mins and walla! Brand new looking container.

cloudy container

I simply love my vitamix but am super disappointed with the cloudy container. I want to replace it, but I've had it just a year!

Cloudy Container

I know the one star review was written some time ago. However FYI air dry = cloudy. Best suggestion; read the owners manual. Great product, you get what you pay for; as they say. I will add that you can make it worth it, as long as you read the Owners Manual.

Easy to Clean

I love this container! It can do just about everything I need. I use it 99% of the time and the dry container the rest. So what if it gets cloudy? You can clean it with vinegar and/or a little baking soda. I will never be without a Vitamix machine!

Great Product & Service

I've used vitamix for two years on a daily basis. It is by far the best mixer on the market. It creates the smoothest smoothies and other concoctions, such as salad dressing. Vitamix also backs up their product with incredible service. They replaced the pitcher that I broke no problem.

16 year old Vitamix

Our Vitamix is 16 yrs old. This machine blends as powerfully now as the first day! We've had to replace the containers once. They get cloudy after time- who cares? The product works--and works great! Thank you for making such a wonderful, dependable product!

Love mine :)

Purchased 2 yrs ago to use for canning & my daily shake-awesome & consistent power, cleans up like a dream & works as good as the 1st day I had it. Had an oopsie tonight, have to order a new container after trying to blend a spoon-not recommended ;) will purchase a new container without hesitation!

Good stuff

The container is great. I'm not sure why someone gave it 1 star. It does move around a bit at first, but it's because of how it's designed. The pitcher doesn't lock on directly to the base like most other blenders, but eventually locks into place as it blends.

Container Material & Blade

My 13 months container looks old Handwash mild dish detergent & airdry w/out the lid on The containers was clear Now container is cloudy Blades 4 points & each point shows rust in the center of points Owning the Vitamix w/container that looks cloudy and old makes for a unpleasant appearance.
