Blenders Buying Guide
Our buying guide will explain which type of blender would suit you most, how much you can expect to pay for one, and which features are worth looking out for.
I have had my Vitamix since 2007 and it has never missed a beat. I paid $800.00 for it new, and have never had to use the warranty. I use it several times a week. I use it for things such as stocks, soups and green smoothies. The container is stained from 12 years of use, but that does not bother me. There are so many different models these days that I get confused. Mine is a basic model. It is very loud, but I have used it at 5am without waking anyone else in the house. The cats are terrified of it, so something to keep in mind if you live in a small house with nervous animals.
Purchased in January 2007 for $800.00.
Love my machine but it broke and can't seem to get any help
I rate the Vitamix well I just have a major issue with the after purchase service. Seems like they lack staff in Australia - very difficult to get hold of anyone and my broken Vitamix still isn't repaired. Spent a lot on this machine, and I expect they could provide better customer service for this. Unhappy, very unhappy.
Worth every cent
I've had my vitamix for around 4 years and it hasn't skipped a beat. I held off buying one for years because of the price and went through many blenders in the $350-$450 range only being left disappointed with the texture and concistancy of my smoothies. The vitamix really is worth every cent, chops thru just about anything. The engine is also designed to be left running for a period of time to make soup (it's the speed of the blades that heat the liquid up.) Smoothies are amazing and smooth. No need to cut apples or carrots up into small bits like other blenders, so smoothie making is simple and quick. Easy to clean and a pleasure to use.

We use our vitamix everyday for smoothies, nut/oat flour and baby food. After 15 months of continuous use it is still going strong. I find it super easy to use and clean. I use the dry jug as well as the standard wet jug. If you put the wet jug lid in the dishwasher it expands and wont fit the jug, but a day in the freezer sorts it out good as new. Love this appliance and highly recommend it
Great but expensive
Cant decide whether the price tag is worth it or not yet but it works well and has quite good features. It’s not quiet but not really that loud either. Will definitely blend majority of your foods very well without any non blended lumps, good speeds. Overall its nice, but pricey

$1000 for a blender, crazy or clever?
Sheer desperation drove me to spending $1000 on the Vitamix 750 after owning many blenders and finding none really good.
After some research and paying some money for the test results from a German outfit I found that only the Vitamix 750 seems to liquify perfectly while lasting a long time. Does it really?
A very solid machine. Its controls and looks send a message: This is a no-nonsense blender for the professional. It does not try to dazzle the amateur with flashy displays and useless buttons.
And mercifully it d...oes not come with the promise of miracle weight loss and eternal youth by “super” foods. It has only one dial and two switches. They are strong and a pleasure to operate. It also has an electric off switch (not only an electronic one, as many other blenders). This means the machine uses no standby power when that switch is off, which saves about $17 per year at average Australian power prices.
Not as I hoped for!
To be honest if you had a stick to push all the ingredients into the blade on any blender it would do the same, the videos I watched of making ice cream etc just doesnt happen you have to keep adding liquid liquid liquid so it can mix then it turns out too runny, Ive followed the vitamix.com recipes to spot on and no bingo!
Save your money buy something cheaper use a wooden spoon to push it into the blades
Expensive but worth it!
I initially avoided vitamix due to the price but after buying a different high end brand that failed me, I put my pennies into a vitamix professional 750 series after some research and boy you get what you pay for. To begin with the noise level produced is less then other brands I've tried, the functions on the blender are easy to follow and are well designed. Great colours, I got mine in copper and its got such a retro feel and look! Great build quality too. Smooth! Smooth! Smooth! No lumpy smoothies or nice creams. This thing is a monster! Fr...ozen bananas blend into a smooth creamy dreamy consistency. The pulse button is excellent for grinding like a food processor as well. I don't use the preset functions because I prefer to have control over the speed settings, but it would be good for others that like to multi-task in the kitchen. The large jug is light and actually makes it easier to scoop and spoon out thicker blends like nice cream. Mine is always on the counter and gets used every single day! In fact I'm going to use it right now :)! Best blender I've used by far!
This is marvellous! My mum loves it
My mum uses it as a food processor despite it being a blender! She was skeptical at that price point but figured that it would not hurt because there was free returns and she never looked back! Best purchase ever (in her words). Build quality is exceptional
After trying another highly advertised brand of blender, and a truly disappointing experience which ended up with me getting a refund, I finally gave up on trying to find another option, bit the bullet, and purchased a Vitamix Pro 750. Why did I not save myself the grief and just get this in the first place??? Vitamix obviously has its reputation for a reason - they are the BEST blenders out there.
Smoothies, ice creams, nut butter, soups, rough chopping veggies, this machine makes it all a breeze. It has easily handled everything I have throw...
In the world of Blenders.....Vitamix is 'KING'.
Nothing compares, or even comes close to a Vitamix Blender. Yes, it is an expensive purchase, however, you can expect years and years of reliable use, and it does EVERYTHING that it is called upon to do.
This is a purchase that once being used, you will marvel at the quality of the food, and drinks that it produces.
I have had mine for a few years now, and truely wouldn't want to live without it in my kitchen.
Best investment ever!
Because of my frequent use of making frozen fruity ice cream, l pretty much destroyed 3 other brands of blenders in 2 years. After l threw the 3rd blender in the trash, l decided it was time to invest in the best!!!
I had heard all about Vitamix, and wanted the best of the best. I only wish i had of purchased one much sooner!!!! I've not come across any kind of blender that can blend up particular greens and dates fully, always stuck at the bottom of the blender. But with the Vitamin and its high speed, its not a problem at all, seconds to co...
I'm amazed at the power this tiny machine has, its never failed to deliver from what expect from vitamix. Stored on my kitchen counter where it gets used daily. I purely use it for my smoothies with all sorts of frozen goodies. Get all my nutrition from this beauty.
I love my Vitamix 750 Professional Series!! I use it at least once every day to make the best and smoothest green smoothies but it is more than that as I can make delicious soups, ice creams, nut butters, almond and other nut milks, etc just so perfectly and easily!! I have tried other brands of high speed blenders but have to say that out of all of them the Vitamix is the best! It blends very well and quickly and yes it is loud but I find that no problem as the end result is so good!! Oh and as an added bonus when you have finished using it just pop in some water and dishwashing liquid and put it on clean cycle and it cleans itself, then just swish around some cold water and leave it to drip dry, couldn't be easier!!
I lovely it I use everyday
i use it every morning to do smoothies and I love ❤️ it I'm very satisfaction with my machine it handles solids and liquid really good and it brings smooth
I also use it to make almond butter & soup, smoothie, ice cream,& other things too love it love to get new machine the only think it is bit noisy but otherwise it's excellent( I got series's 750 )
Now that I have the Vitamix, I couldn't live without it!
I've used the Vitamix daily to make smoothies, puree's, ice cream, sorbets, soups, pancakes, brownies, slices, nut butters and more. I love the 10 speeds which help blend foods that have various consistencies, adding to this the tamper is useful for pushing harder foods down into the blades, which I used to make nut butters. It's stylish design sits on my kitchen bench top, feels solid and sturdy, yet light enough to move around as needed. At high speed with the jug full of ingredients doesn't jump around. The large 2L jug is perfect for my fam...ily of 5 and the fact that it cleans itself is a bonus - a drop of detergent in the blender with water and 30 seconds later it's clean. The Vitamix has really made a difference in my kitchen prepping healthy meals and snacks for my family, making mealtime quicker with less mess. Now that I have it, I couldn't live without it!

Questions & Answers
Hi I recently bought a Vitamix 750 and as I live in Mallorca and there are no dealers here I bought it from Amazon Spain. The problem is that all the instructions, recipe book and DVD are in German. I'm a bit disappointed and would really like to get every thing in English. Also I'm not sure if I can make nut butters in it or if I need an additional jug/blades, any help???
My husband makes loads of hummus etc. It drives him crazy getting it out and having to stop and stir it around. I would like a blender that does pastries and nuts. Any suggestions?
