6500 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny! We just got this model after much debate over the value of the purchase vs other blenders. The Vitamix is leaps and bounds above anything else out there for home use. We love how smooth everything comes out, and how quickly it blends everything. Easy to clean and very simple to use. Highly recommend! Also, Vitamix customer service, while sometimes a lengthy wait on hold, is very helpful if you need to use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How much is your health worth? I originally bought the Vitamix's primary competitor at Costco was on sale. I got what I paid for. It was twice as noisy with less than satisfactory results. It left chunks of dates on the pre-programmed smoothie setting. Dates... A premium blender should never have trouble blending those. Everything I saw about the Vitamix 6500 said "BUY ME!" Granted, the cost was a good bit more, but well worth it. Hit the smoothie button, tamp a little to get the frozen stuff moving and out came perfection. Everything about this blender speaks of quality. The base is hefty, as are the containers. Four blades ensure premium efficiency. On 10, it's half as quite as the leading competitor. Now, all I have to do is put the dry grains container to use. I see a much healthier me in the very near future. Vitamix rocks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I work as a professional chef and have used a few types of blenders at my job. By far the Vitamix has always been my favorite and I have known for some time that I wanted one for my dream kitchen. The rep at Costco was demoing the 6500 and once I saw the pre-programmed choices for smoothies, desserts, and soups I was very excited. I love being able to put everything in the blender, push a button, and walk away while the blender does all the work. This will also save me considerable time pureeing fruits for my country wines come summer time and I can see myself using this machine for a variety of applications. It is so easy to clean as long as you clean it and rinse it out right after you are done and don't let it sit too long. The blender does make some noise when chopping up ice and frozen fruits but noting compared to other blenders I have seen. If you want a versatile kitchen tool that will last a lifetime be sure to consider this Vitamix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought 3 days ago - Un-freakin-real I admit, I was one of those ppl who said: No way would I ever pay such a price for a 'blender'...Well, this ain't no blender, folks. It's an apparatus for a better life. Period. Too many things to say about it. It's just the BOMB!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AH-MA-ZIIINNNNGGGG!!! My honey surprised me with this wonderful blender for our Anniversary gift. After spending about an hour with the Vitamix Rep at Costco sampling everything I told her that I would add it to my Christmas List for Santa to get. Little did I know Christmas would come early. Everything the Rep made was delicious and fast!! From the Smoothie to the Tortilla Soup and Sorbet...I was just blown away at what this blender could do. I love that it has the pre-set features for Soup / Smoothie / Frozen Desserts. All I have to do is drop in the ingredients and let magic happen. So far we have mad 2 smoothies and Broccoli Cheddar Soup. The texture of the smoothies are what I have been trying to accomplish for the last 4+ years. Always wondered how Jamba Juice got their Smoothies to be soooo smooth in texture LOL. I am in love with this blender and look forward to using it for for any AND everything! I highly recommend the Vitamix blenders especially the 6500 Series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blender EVER! I bought the Vitamix 6500 a few years ago at Costco. I was hesitant because it was around $400, but I watched the sales person for a while, then decided, what the heck, I'll give it a try. The price on this website is now $600. Best purchase I've ever made, with the exception of my Homemakers Guild stainless cookware set I bought in 1978. I use my Vitamix every day for smoothies. It grinds up everything, and I mean everything! This is healthy eating at its finest. I've made spinach ice cream in this blender. Everyone loved it. I made Tortilla Soup in this blender. Again-delicious! The different settings work great. The frozen setting makes frozen deserts, and the soup setting makes hot soups in an instant. If this blender motor ever dies, I WILL buy another one!
