I love the power and capabilities of this machine. Owned for around 1.5 years. Unfortunately, while making a nut butter, the blade assembly stripped the flat spots in the lexan container where the container locks to the blades. Warranty should cover, but irritating.

Love it daily

Just received this and so very happy I bought it. Perfect for morning drinks and evening comfort soups. Very glad I have it in time for the holidays.

loved for over 45 years

updated from3600 ( still works) because I wanted more power. I make almond milk, freeze it in ice cube trays for my smoothies, blend my banana peels with a little water and pour on my roses and plants, blend up my apricots and plums from my fruit trees, make dinner and much more.

Game Changer

Reluctantly made the plunge on Vitamix. Best "investment" I've made in years. I'm still blown away at how powerful it is and everything I can prepare. From green smoothies to hummus and soups, nothing stop this bad boy.


Picked up one as a recertified model. It is outstanding. I'm using it to blend peppers and I wanted something that would liquify the seeds. This thing has power to spare! I was amazed to find out that it is made in my home state and not overseas. Great product. Great warranty. Viva la Vitamix

Words don't do justice

I drink smoothies daily. All my recipes taste better just with this machine. Flavors and texture are so much better and all the new recipes will only improve my eating habits. Can't say enough how pleased I am.

Bought the CIA model. It hasn't stopped since we brought it home. We made veg drinks, soups, smoothies, sorbet, and a frozen coffee drink. I Wish we made this investment in our health a long time ago. If you're thinking about getting one, buy it, You will not regret it. Amazing !!!!


This thing is WONDERFUL! It does absolutely everything, from chopping onions and making creamy smoothies/soups to grinding grain into flour and almonds into almond butter! I have never been happier with any kitchen tool or appliance.
