Just returned Model 3600

Just traded in my 36 year old Vitamix for a refurbished 5200 model. When was the last time you had a blender for 36 years?

amAAAAAzing :)

I use it everyday to make a fruit and green smoothie. You can't use any other blender to make green smoothies. I'm a sports medicine physician, and I advise my patients and families to consider purchasing one. I'll be purchasing one for my parents.

great machine

I am a mechanic for a living. I am extremely impressed with the workmanship and design of this machine. They didn't skimp on any aspect of construction. It looks brand new, and I'm sure it'll be working just fine when it doesn't look so new. Buy it

Just too amazing even if it's an older model

I bought this blender and I'm telling you that it is perfect and amazing, I'm glad that I bought this, I don't like to chop onions, grind meat, or whisk anything. It also cleans itself and the sound is not like other blenders on the market.

very happy with my purchase

It took a while for my Vitamix to ship, but the wait was worth it. The reconditioned machine looks and feels brand new. It is absolutely spotless! I just couldn't spend $500 on a new machine, so I was happy to get a reconditioned Vitamix at a great price.

We love it!

We love our vitamix! Soup, smoothies, ice cream and almond milk have all been a super hit and easy peasy in this beast of a machine.

Best Kitchen Purchase Ever

Just got the basic Standard model. Totally opened up my eating habits. So many recipes I want to try. I pretty much use it everyday. Got rid of my microwave and put this in it's place. My kitchen looks so much better.


I was getting on-line to buy a Vitamix for my daughter. I have had one for about five years and there is NO BETTER BLENDER!!!! I am buying for my daughter and son-in-law because they have a baby now and this is great for making homemade, healthy organic baby food!

Good but don't buy marketing hype

Bought a refurb @ demo being promised extra books and the ability of doing everything. Excellent blender- no coarse particles in smoothies but blenders excel at liquids, food processors @ solids. Warranty shorten from 7 to 5.yr

Worth every cent!

I bought this reconditioned blender after buying a standard one from bed bath and beyond! I bought it just to "try" it and see if it was worth the hype, intending to return it. Well it sold me the first day and I bought this model instead! I love this blender and looks brand new!

Love IT!!

I bought a refurbished 5200 series over a year ago. I love it!! I use it daily. The boss at the same time bought one for work that gets ran at least 2Xs a day or more. Runs smooth without fail! Will never buy a different Blender. Vitamix IS the best!!

Should call it Vitamix

I bought my unit almost three years ago, and I've never had a single problem. This is by far the best kitchen tool you'll ever buy. It's built like a tank. There's a reason every restaurant kitchen you see has at least one.
