CIA Professional Series- with compact container is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than what I used in Culinary School This model is newer than what I used while at The Culinary Institute of America. As a recent graduate, I got this as a gift and couldn't be more pleased. Mostly I have made nut butters in it, which all turned out smooth. Everyone knows that nut butters are one of the most difficult things to make well at home, so this model passed the test! I did end up overheating it a few times to the point that it shut off on its own for self preservation, but I am a professional and use this often. When it over heats I just put the base in front of a fan or even covered outside to cool down. I have been able to use it again after 20 minutes of cooling off. Also, the recipe packet that came with it was enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE MY VITAMIX After purchasing expensive smoothies I decided to invest in a blender that would make smooth and creamy drinks. I noticed that the local retailer was using Vitamix and decided to look into it. After reading reviews I decided it was worth the investment. My husband would always say "don't buy cheap you end up paying more in the long run". So I took his advised and invested in this machine and it has been the BEST thing ever. We use it all the time for so many things. I recommend Vitamix to everyone! I will never NOT HAVE A VITAMIX as long as I am in the kitchen. My kids also have vitamix products now that they are married and in their homes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamix Loving Family I reluctantly purchased my beautiful turquoise Vitamix in 2015, It had been on my Wish List for many years but could not justify spending so much money on a blender. After our last average store bought blender broke I decided to invest in a Vitamix. This machine is used 2 - 5 times everyday! I cant tell you how happy I am with this product. I use to place it in our cabinet after each use because I hate having items out on my kitchen counters, but after having to move it so many times a day we just left this beauty out on full display! Easy to use, Easy to clean, makes our smoothies in seconds. If you still have this item on your Wish List- BUY IT. You wont regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped it would be I bought this Vitamix after years of drooling. I moved and was left with a smaller kitchen and needed to choose between a juicer and a blender for my tiny bit of countertop real estate. This was the right choice and worth every penny. I cook quite a bit but really find myself using the Vitamix primarily for making smoothies and soups. What I love most is how smooth a blend I can get. When I make a kale smoothie, the kale is completely pulverized in less than a minute. Not many machines on the market can do that. And when I want silky smooth soup, that's not a problem either. Ideally the machine would be quieter, but it's worth the trade off (and you wont have it on long anyway!). This is by far my favorite appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My Vitamix! I was tired of drinking chunky smoothies from my old blender, so I asked my husband for a Vitamix. What a difference. Well blended, smooth-smoothies in no time. Clean-up is a breeze. Currently, I am in the process of using my Vitamix for other recipes. I have tried several soups and I love it to make my own salad dressing. I quit buying salad dressing at the grocery store because the dressing I make with my Vitamix are much tastier. As far as the features on my Vitamix, I love the covered handle on my 32 ounce container. I also like having control over my settings. I really have no need for preset settings. Yes, the motor is louder than my old Kitchen Aid blender, but it does a superior job. I am extremely happy with my purchase and I look forward to trying new recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Can't Believe I Have a Vitamix. My heart leaps when I walk in the kitchen to see it. I find myself wanting to give it a hug. Best kitchen tool ever. When my last highly-rated blender exploded when I was making a chocolate smoothie. I said, "That's it" With Vitamix you do get what you paid for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful I use it everyday. The power of this machine continues to amaze me. I have watched someone else use a different brand and all I could say was"my Vitamix would be done by now and it would be smoother and creamy without those chunks"
