After years of watching Iron Chef, my husband had been yearning for a Vitamix.  At first I was reluctant to take the plunge because it's really a big investment.  They aren't cheap, folks.  But this Christmas I decided to get my man the blender of his dreams, and I'm so glad I did.  He was thrilled, of course, but I now have a fantastic tool in my kitchen.  This Vitamix works like no blender I've ever used before, and I've used quite a few over the years.  It makes delicious hot soup from fresh ingredients in no time.  Makes world class sorbets in nothing flat. And the big cookbook that came with it has the most fantastic recipes.  I make my own ketchup, and it was always such a messy chore... not anymore!  The Vitamix purees so thoroughly there's no need to strain, or even peel the tomatoes!  Wow!  With both my husband and I avid cooks, we're already discovering many more uses for the Vitamix then for a previous blender.  Yes, it's expensive, but it really doesn't compare with even the best blenders out there.  Go for it!

      Comments about Vitamix Professional Series 500 Variable Speed Blender:

      I received my Vitamix as a gift from my Mother. I was very appreciative but I never thought I would have bought one for myself. Well let me tell you my mind changed the first time I used it. It came with a lovely book that you put together yourself. And as I was doing so, and reading different recipes along the way, I decided to make one of the recipes. I was so impressed with the speed of the blender and with how well it chops and mixes everything. It makes cooking just a bit easier using this little wonder. You will not be sorry. Although I felt sorry for my former blender because I got rid of it! My Mother is also happy with it because she now lives with me and she gets to enjoy what I make with my Vitamix blender.

      the price,this is definitely at the more expensive end of the blender spectrum, but it seems you get what you pay for with blenders.

        Comments about Vitamix Professional Series 500 Variable Speed Blender:

        This blender is very powerful and can serve a very wide range of blending needs including blending nuts into nut butters (a great way to make healthy, homemade peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter and more). Also a great blender for smoothies, blending cooking ingredients and pulsing herbs. However, I really wish this vitamix blender had a glass blender container instead of plastic. The plastic blender container clouded very quickly and does not come clean in a clear way. I have to say, this is now more of a specialty use blender for us that we use only occasionally (see nut butter info above), versus the blender we turn to for everyday smoothie making (fruits and vedgetables) which is the Nutribullet.
