S50 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right size for me I have been thinking about this purchase for awhile! I have been reluctant to buy an expensive blender because I'm a one person household and don't want a lot of appliances I'm not going to use in a small kitchen. I lived with a larger top quality blender before and found it to big to make smaller quantities. This is perfect. I love the smoothie to go cup to take to work. It is sitting on the counter and I am using it everyday. I have only had it about a month but it looks like heavy duty top quality and simple construction. If it lives up to its long lasting reputation I will be 100% happy customer. So far perfect. Helping me to live a healthier life!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance The only good thing about this model Is that it takes up less counter space. I make daily fresh smoothies and the ingredients are constantly getting stuck in the narrow part of the container, I have to stop the blades and push the ingredients down several times. What used to take me 1 minute in a kitchenaid blender now takes me over 3 minutes and creates a huge mess with the spoon drippings and splashes from having to push the ingredients down several times and get the blades to catch. The whole point of buying this expensive appliance is for high quality performance and ease of use. Very disappointed with my first vitamix product. Will be going back to kitchenaid as soon as I can!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor is too weak, constantly overheats I have owned the 700 series Vitamix for years and it is excellent, so I am a fan of their products. The S50 has been a horrible disappointment. I bought it to make smoothies in a to go cup and it would consistently overheat and freeze up with my normal smoothie recipe. I sent it back for repair and bought a Bullet for $69 while I waited to get it back. The Bullet had absolutely no problem with the same recipe, WHICH IS RIDICULOUS considering it costs a fraction of the Vitamix. Vitamix replaced it and sent it back, but I have the same problems over and over. This version of their product was simply not designed well for the task, which is very surprising given the quality of their other products. More suprising is that they have not fixed it yet as this is a 2+ year old problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed As the owner of two other Vitamix blenders, I must say that I am very disappointed in the S50. The performance does not measure up to the same quality that we have come to know and expect from a Vitamix. I bought this unit to keep at the office for my protein shakes and smoothies and I'm sorry to say that it leaves ice and unblended chunks. Quite a difference from the Super 5000 or the Creations GC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact blender! I use it just about every day to make fruit smoothies. The 20 oz cup is a bit tricky (frozen fruit will get stuck in the narrow part) so there is a little bit of a learning curve, but the cup is perfect for taking my smoothie on the go. Now that I have it figured out I view this blender as an essential part to a healthy diet that helps me get in the fruit I need. I like being able to remove the blade base to clean it well and knowing I can get a new one makes it a great choice (the blades have always failed me on cheap blenders).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a wonderful product! I am so happy that I bought myself a Vitamix! The recepe book that comes with it has great suggestions that are mostly healthy! It is easy to clean and works well. They give you all of the directions that you need to be able to use it properly and it is a versatile product! I have gone from grinding up coffee beans in it to making smoothies and soups within minutes because it is so easy to clean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful for a single person serving! I saw the smaller Vitamix several years ago. I wanted to think about. I decided it would be perfect for me. But then I could not find one for sale! I searched and seached for 3 years. The larger model was just not suited for me. One day on Amazon, during yet another search, I found a review on the S50! I ordered it that day, directly from Vitamix. It is amazing!! I use it everyday to make smoothies and juices. My only regret is that I did not purchase it the first time I saw it!! Thank you Vitamix. And made in the USA !

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't deserve even 1 star Where to even begin? This is my first Vitamix blender (and last). Extremely difficult to use. If the lid at the bottom is not completely tightened the contents will drip out and it's hard to open and close it. Poor design. Doesn't blend my frozen vegetables thoroughly no matter how much liquid I put. Difficult to wash. Can't believe I paid this much for a mediocre blender when the cheap ones work better!!! Sorry, will be going back to ninja bullet. I'm very disappointed. I wouldn't even buy this for $10 ever again and wish I could return it.
