Well Worth the Money

We have used it every morning for the past year, and it never lets us down. I use it for breakfast smoothies, soups and dressings, and bisques. My only complaint is that is is about half an inch too high to fit on my kitchen counter with the lid on. It's one powerful machine.

Great customer service!

The blender has worked perfectly for around 2 yrs. until the bottom of the container broke and my smoothie spilled all over the machine. We called Vitamix and right away they emailed me a packing slip to make the return, fixed it and sent it back all for free and it took only a week!

I don't know how I lived without it before!

Great kitchen tool, strong, reliable, crushes ice, makes thousands of spreads and smoothies, vegan cheese, soups. I used it also in teaching community cooking classes, and it was the hero! Now my daughter wants one as a wedding gift - of course she MUST have one :-)


We got our Vitamix 5200 as a Christmas gift and have used it everyday since, no blender compares to this one!

Never buying a smoothie again!

So thrilled that I am finally able to make restaurant quality smoothies in my own kitchen, not to mention the many other functions that the Vitamix can perform. I will never buy another blender or store made smoothie again! Best investment ever!!!

amazing service

The blender has worked outstanding for near 3 yrs. I accidentally broke something. We called and told VM. They paid for, shipped and fixed in a week for free. I had another item where I paid for a warrantee and it was a 2 mo nightmare. Awesome co.

Best Salsa and smoothies

Bought for Xmas gift but ended up keeping it for self made salsa with all fresh ingredients. The best anyone's ever tasted. Also my workout drinks so creamy no clunks. Had Ninja used it a few times did not like the texture. Did not mix, bought it because it compared to vitamix.

Amazing blender, amazing customer service!

Everyone knows that this is an awesome blender - but customer service is also incredible. On our FIRST use my poor husband dropped a spoon inside. Not covered by the warranty and we almost cried. VitaMix is fixing it for free as a courtesty! We'll never use another blender.

Best Blender EVER!

I purchased my first 5200 two years ago. My daughter took it to college this year, and I bought another. Love it!! Smoothies and soups are awesome. I use mine every day.

Top Product

After two years of daily use, I can say that the Vitamix is the best mixer on the market. It makes the smoothest smoothies and the finest salads. The service is terrific and they stand by their mixers and replace parts no problem.
