    Comments about Vitamix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender:

    I bought this product in hopes it would lead to healthier eating habits and a smoother milkshake but the abilities of the Vitamix don't end there! I use this product daily for juice in the morning or smoothies after the gym. Throw all of your items into the blender and watch it work its magic. Ice, frozen fruit, nuts and even grinding coffee beans! The vitamix comes with a recipe book, but its a guide to show you all the capabilities you can use your vitamix for. Making soups is another awesome feature, to make a potato cheddar soup you can add hot potatoes and hot broth and blend it thoroughly without having to mash or stir. Over all I use this product on a daily and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable and powerful blender!

      This model is newer than what I used while at The Culinary Institute of America. As a recent graduate, I got this as a gift and couldn't be more pleased. Mostly I have made nut butters in it, which all turned out smooth. Everyone knows that nut butters are one of the most difficult things to make well at home, so this model passed the test! I did end up overheating it a few times to the point that it shut off on its own for self preservation, but I am a professional and use this often. When it over heats I just put the base in front of a fan or even covered outside to cool down. I have been able to use it again after 20 minutes of cooling off. Also, the recipe packet that came with it was enjoyable.

        Best blender you will ever buy!

        Comments about Vitamix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender:

        There have only been a couple times that the vitamix didn't blend as well as I would like but, I still give it a 10 because, it's a beast. It can blend just about anything. Plus, you can make soup and who can say no to soup?

        Blending Power
        If you don't put a certain amount of food in, it doesn't seem to blend well. Otherwise it blends awesome.

        Versatility
        You can make just about anything in here.

        Ease of Cleaning
        It's by far and away the easiest blender I have ever owned as far as cleaning. However, it's not as simple as they advertise either. It needs more then a blending with soap.

        Ease of Use
        I wish I didn't have to use the hand stirring cabob for so many things.

        Design
        It could be a little smaller and sleeker. Then again, if it compromises the quality don't change it!

        Durability
        It's pretty hefty and durable. There have been a few times I smelled something funky and it made strange sounds. That always worries me because, these are so expensive. However, I still think they are extremely durable!

        Comments about Vitamix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender:

        I am quite pleased with my recent purchase of my VitaMix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender. There is nothing that this blender cannot do. I am able to chop, mix, puree, cream, and blend any recipe idea that my husband throws my way. In addition, smoothies have returned to the regular menu thanks to the ease of use of the VitaMix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender.

        Ease of Cleaning
        The Vitamix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender is quite easy to clean. The lid and container themselves are dishwasher safe. The base of the Vitamix blender is easy ti wipe down. I have not had an issue with any leakage.

        Durability
        My Vitamax Professional Series Variable-Speed blender has been able to create margaritas, smoothies, salsas, milkshakes, marinades, and countless purees. I have thrown countless ingredients into this blender and there is nothing that it cannot handle.

        Comments about Vitamix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender:

        This blender is perfect for me. I do a lot of smoothies and juices, and this blender is perfect for that. I love using it, it is quick, and does not take a long time. Cleaning it is easy and saves me a lot of time. The design is great, and the speed is awesome. I recommend this blender to everyone who loves doing smoothies, juices, cocktails, and you can even do ice cream with it. And during the summer if you want a slushy drink this blender will do it too. You just add ice and your favorite drink.

        Blending Power
        The blending power is excellent. It is really fast, and it is quick. It does not take a long time blending my smoothies, and juices.

        Ease of Cleaning
        Cleaning it is really easy. You just have to be careful for the blades. But overall cleaning it does not take along time and it does not give you a hard time.

        Ease of Use
        Using it is super easy, you just pop in your ingredients and it will blend it in no time! it is not hard at all using this blender.

        A must have for a lover of cooking

        Comments about Vitamix Professional Series Variable-Speed Blender:

        I've had this product for a year and I absolutely love it. It is well worth the hefty price tag. I use it for many different purposes. I routinely make smoothies and chop vegetables in it. I have also made soups, sorbets, coconut or almond milk and almond flour. My only disappointment has been its ability to make nut butters. I can not get a good consistency with them. If you can afford it, I would definitely recommend it. You won't regret this purchase.

        Blending Power
        This blender has tremendous power. It can handle just about anything.

        Versatility
        I have used this blender for many different purposes. I've made almond flour, almond or coconut milk, smoothies, fruit sorbets, pasta sauces, soups and chopped vegetables. It has many different uses.

        Ease of Cleaning
        I usually just rinse the blender out with warm water and it gets clean. If you have some stubborn food that won't come off, simply put a drop of dish soap in it with warm water filled halfway. You then turn the blender and gradually increasing speed. Everything comes off so easily this way. You just rinse all the soap off and let it air dry.

        Ease of Use
        This blender is very easy to use. You will always start at the lowest setting. From there you can gradually increase speed. I keep turning the speed up until I have reached the desired consistency.

        Design
        This blender is definitely bulky and heavy, but you have to put a powerful motor somewhere. It is no more unsightly than any other small appliance I own.

        Durability
        The motor will shut off if it is close to overheating. This prevents you from burning the motor out. I have only had this happen once in the year that I have owned it. The blender has a very long warranty should anything happen to it.
