A very good blender with a lot of power.
I am very happy with my purchase of a Vitamix blender. It has been a very versatile kitchen tool that has many practical applications. Wether you like to drink smoothies, prepare soups, or produce sauces or condiments, you are covered by a Vitamix blender.
Best and most powerful one I have ever used.
The Vitamix has been a staple in our kitchen for a few years now. Not only is it extremely powerful (better than any others I have used), but it is easy to clean, easy to use and very versatile depending on what you are using it for. My kitchen would not be the same without it, and it has helped me restore my health after a long term chronic illness, with ease.
I'm still having to go to my trusty Russell Hobbs
I have had my Vitamix for a good 8 months now. I thought I'd never have to use another machine once I bought it. but unfortunately it frustrates me when I need to blend things such as pestos or other such sauces. I find that I have to double all the ingredients to get a good blend. I find that the jug is just too big at the base for it to blend effectively. after spending big money I don't really want to fork out more money to buy smaller appliances to do these sauces. So I'm using my little Russell Hobbs blender that I have had for years and only really using the Vitamix for smoothies!
Top Kitchen Tool
I bought the Vitamix back in 2015 because the Vitamix had the capacity to blend foods, without nutritional waste. For example, blitzing fruit without losing the fibre by spitting out skins etc or being too chunky and difficult to enjoy. A member of the family was unwell and this feature alone was a godsend, contributing to healthy eating/drinking. The machine has been invaluable to us FOR THIS REASON ALONE. Now, we are acai bowl officiandos, smoothie and ice-cream makers extraordinaire. Bring on summer! The machine is really powerful. While ex...pensive (it has been a worthwhile investment for us). At this price, you do need to treat it respectfully and follow instructions. We would not what to live without ours because we take advantage of its features. I still use a kitchen whizz for other things, eg pesto as I find the Vita Mix makes it too fine and the jug , being large, needs a lot of ingredients to blitz, so not so great for a little serve of pesto, for example. Last year, a part in the Vitamix went. Vitamix on-line service had the machine collected the next morning, repaired and returned without question. I have never received such service in my entire life. I am still amazed when I think about a company living up to its guarantees.
Better and better
Had my Vitamix for 2 years and I am even more impressed with it. Apart from the obvious juices, smoothies, soups, blending functions it will make icing sugar from white sugar, sorbets, shaved ice, hummus, breadcrumbs and the list goes on.
Use the stick to keep the food at the bottom to keep the mixture revolving.
Best blender ever
This blender is amazing, I have made nut butters, soup and all sorts of things with the blender. Had a minor issue and the blender was replaced straight away. Great customer service.

Questions & Answers
Our jug has cracked, with a 1cm hole.
Everything else ( blades, docking ring,etc) is in perfect working order.
Is there any way we can get a replacement where I can swap out the the moving parts from the old one rather than buying a completely new jug?
What is the warranty for a vita-mix whose motor has stopped working (all lights are on, but the mixer won't blend)? The machine is over 25 years old!
The warranty is 7 years for Total Nutrition Centre and the new Ascent models offer a 10 year warranty.
I am looking for a juicer so as to juice celery and leafy greens,we have been reading how we need a juicer machine that needs to masticate the vegetables. Does the vitamix work to juice this way?
The Vitamix blender uses the whole ingredient, including the fiber, rather than throwing away the pulp it is finely blended for more nutrients.
