Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fluffy, perfect smoothies! I have several Vitamix blenders for my smoothie shop, home and Farmer’s Merket booth. They all have been working for years and I love them. They are reliable, make great drinks and we have had no issues after thousands of drinks with any of them breaking or wearing out. I recently added this blender to our store and LOVE IT! It makes the drinks smooth, fluffy and perfectly textured! Our smoothie menu at my store has more than 20 drinks and we use a large variety of fresh and frozen fruits, veggies and ice. This blender can handle them all! It’s noisy but our customers don’t care. We blend the drinks on low for a minute and then finish on high for a couple sendings to but down on the noise and it makes a prefect drink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I do not use it commercially but I do process a lot for storage. For example, I am blending apples, pears and plums for fruit ladder. So, lately it is being used like a commercial kitchen. But normally I only use is once or twice a day. I make a shake with frozen berries, it works great, like no other blender I owned before. If there is something I have to complaint about is the top..while it secures perfectly, it is a struggle to get off. Maybe a design with a twist instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine This is a workhorse of a blender. No disappointments here. We use it commercially for multiple tasks and it performs. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicht zuviel versprochen.. Ich war skeptisch, was von den Werbeversprechen zu halten ist, aber nach einer Woche will ich das Ding nicht mehr missen. Der macht wirklich alles klein und ist nicht totzukriegen. Wenn man eine große zähe Masse eine zeitlang mit hoher Geschwindigkeit mixt, wird er vielleicht ein bisschen warm, mehr aber auch nicht.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a Couple of Issues Just a couple of areas of concern. First, I was disappointed that the unit was so lightweight - even the container is lightweight. Not what I would have expected for a durable, high quality commercial product. Consequently, when you start a blend, the whole unit starts to move and you need to hold onto it so it doesn't leave the counter. Secondly, once the ingredients are mixed together, it takes a long time for the whole mixture to start blending at full speed, i.e. it is blending at the bottom and it takes a while to reach the top - much longer than other blenders I have used. I will say, however, that once the job is done, I have no complaints about the finished product. I just had higher expectations from a commercial unit. I do kind of regret getting it.
