@ash23:  We have a Vitamix and love it. Yes it is a substantial purchase, but it is so worth it. Ours come with a 7 year warrantee, which gives me confidence in the brand too.. I have a fresh smoothie every morning, and love that it makes soups/heats too. I really cant wait to make ice cream once the weather heats up too.. You will love it Laughing

Holy Hell…she runs a place with one?! That’s pretty amazing. We don’t particularly use a blender…every once in a while but if we choose to register for one, I will keep this in mind!

I have a Vitamix and it is worth every penny. Cleanup is WAY easier with a one-piece blender too than the ones that come apart.

I tried out both the Vitamix and the Blendtec and even though I preferred the look of the Blendtec (which does carry a lot of weight with me), I really preferred the Vitamix overall and returned the Blendtec. I liked the mechanical knobs rather than the electronics and it just felt more substantial.

We are not registering and my only regret is that I can’t register for a Vitamix! haha  I am the smoothie queen and have learned that you DEFINITELY get what you pay for when it comes to blenders.  My fiance had his parents’ old blender from the 70s (olive green and all) until last year and that thing was built like a tank!  I guess its true that they don’t make things like they used to…

I love my Vitamix! My Fiance makes guacamole and bean dip in it. I make waffle batter and smoothies and blended iced coffee. I think it gets used the LEAST for smoothies, but those are great too!

We have a Vitamix and LOVE IT!!!! We got a refurbished one, so it was a bit less expensive and still came with a 5 year warrantee!

My mum has a Vitamix and it’s the best thing she’s ever bought. I want one!

Which Vitamix do you ladies prefer? I think there is a 750, 500, 300, and maybe a 250?  I’m not looking to run a restaurant, but our blender gets some pretty heavy useage now (at a minimum once every morning for a daily smoothie)  Any opinions?

@StuffWithScout:  I can’t remember which model I have (got it at Costco), but if you’re looking to keep it on your counter, be sure you check the height! Some models are too tall to fit under standard cabinets. The one I have does fit, they made the blender jar a little shorter I believe.

I have an old Vitamix from the 60s that I got at a garage sale for $5.  It works darned good and looks really cool – reminds me of an airstream!  Only downsides are it doesn’t have as many settings and no accessories.

I have a Vitamix on my registry! I’m hoping some people go in together and get one, but if not, I’ll use the completion discount and buy it myself after the wedding!

The Vitamix is awesome if you’re gluten free. Gluten free flours are expensive, but you can make them in a Vitamix. This works with rice, barley, dried corn kernels, almonds, etc.

We love our Vitamix. I don’t think we ever would have bought it ourselves (it was a housewarming gift from my boyfriend’s uncle), but we absolutely love having it. We use it to make healthy sorbets, soups, sauces, hummus, smoothies and so many other things.

We’re registered for one! I hope we get it!
