No, they are great machines.

Had mine for over 20 years and still going strong after almost everyday usage.

That is a good price.

It is in a different class than standard blenders. It creates a very different product.

Will it pulverize uranium ore?

I've had walmart 20 dollar blenders that lasted 10+ years.

Monkey is right.


WalMart $25 * 10 blenders = $50 change.

If I had that kind of money in my blender budget I would definitely get one, I've wanted a Vitamix for years.
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:00:53 PM EST
Still overpriced for essentially a blender. My $60 Nonja does all that but granted its not as 'easy.'
Link Posted: 10/1/2014 10:03:58 PM EST
For the doubters, this is a GREAT blender. My wife uses it to make me shakes, slushees, soup and other foods. I got it with points I accrued at work for exceeding requirements.

Getting some quality machinery in the kitchen makes for happy ladies - if your lady likes the kitchen. Mine worked as a baker for several years so she understands and appreciates quality equipment.

We had 2 or 3 blenders, 1 for slushees, 1 for other stuff and 1 for soups. Now we have 1. Vitamix.

This happy lady is going to continue beating fruit between two rocks to make smoothies. I ain't spending that kind of money. It's awesome if you're rich tho.

What does this do that my $50 Oster from Wal-Mart that has been running strong well over 5 years won't do?

It has the horsepower to pulverize things that would burn out your oster, then some. It can actually cause pureed ingredients to get hot due to friction from the blades; you can literally make hot soup in it. And that is just the start.

Most of all, it is built like a tank and will last longer than you will need a blender, assuming you do not destroy it on purpose. There is a good reason why about every professional kitchen has one or two of them-they can take heavy use that would burn out/destroy a cheap blender.

You get what you pay for...

I thought my wife was fucking nuts when she bought ours. It cost more than my first car.

Now if it died I'd go out and pay full price the same day.

Asking what this does "over my $xx Walmart brand blender" is like asking "what does that Ferrari do that my civic can't"...

The answer is EVERYTHING!

The only thing these share with your common household blenders is a title.

im fond of strawberry banana smoothies... in normaly blenders, you will have a cup full of strawberry seeds when done...

in my Vitamix, you have zero seeds when done, it liquefies them...

The last thing I would get my wife for Xmas is a blender or any other appliance for that matter.
Link Posted: 10/2/2014 8:37:33 AM EST
My wife has hinted she wants one for Christmas.

I have exactly zero clue what makes for a $600 blender, or why someone would need one. My wife, conversely, has zero clue about, or why someone would want untold dollars worth of firearms related stuff littering our house. Thus, she will likely get one.

Some things aren't meant to be analyzed. Some things just are.

If you go by my experience we should ditch "E Pluribus Unum" and put it on our currency.

Not trying to be a jackass for once here.

I just haven't found anything I wanted to do but couldn't with mine and was wondering if it is worth dropping the $$ on.

We have a Pro Series 750 and wife makes smoothies daily. Great machines and endless uses.

A few years ago, I wasted $100 on the nutribullet for my wife which, after a few months, seeped rust (from the ball bearings) into the food. Threw the NutriBullet into the trash where it belonged from the first day got her the VitaMix she always wanted.

It's 4x the price but 100x the quality.

I don't use a blender enough to justify the discounted price...

My wife has one she bought off an infomercial, the montel Williams model


It works, she makes herself a smoothy every morning before work. Loud though, I would pay more for one that made less noise.

I wonder if the ones made 20 years ago were better made than the ones today.

The advertised product ifs "reconditioned".

If the current blender is such a hot ticket, why did it have to be reconditioned?

I use my Vitamix daily. Money well spent. We went the refurbished route.

The wife loves ours. She makes homemade tomato soup in it. Throw in the ingredients and in about 10 minutes it's done. Cooked and all.

Why not look at a commercial blender at that price?

they send pallets of blenders to "shows" like costo or trade shows, where a guy does demos and sells them from a booth. what ever is not sold is shipped back, when it shipped back, EVEN IF THE BOX WAS NEVER OPENED, its resold as "reconditioned"...
