Definitely Worth the Investment

DateMay 26, 2013
Buying a $500+ blender is definitely an investment and not a decision that most people would take lightly.
First, you have to become convinced that it is worth spending $500 instead of $50 for a blender.
Second, once you come to that conclusion, the question is which model to buy.
After our trusty name brand $100 blender broke three times under normal use, being tired of tossing out pulp from a juice extractor, and after seeing several demos of both Vitamix and Blendtec, my wife and I became convinced that it was worth the investment.
Now, which model to buy? There are a dizzying number of choices. After buying a Blendtec and returning it after one use because it was very noisy, we narrowed our choice to Vitamix. After doing lots of research on the Internet and speaking with a friend who is professional chef and uses Vitamix blenders day in and day out, we ended up picking the Pro 300.
It really came down to personal preference. Presets were not important to us. Noise level and blending performance was. The old series, Pro 200 and its equivalents the 5200/CIA Pro/Creations GC, or the Pro 500 and its equivalent the 6300 are twice as loud as the Pro 300. For you sound geeks like me, that's 10 dB noisier. The Pro 300 is just as quiet as the Pro 750 (contrary to what the associates at Surlatable will tell you; if you don't believe me see Vitamix's website), so the only difference between the Pro 300 and 750 are the presets and the finish.
So how is the Pro 300 in action? Fantastic!! It is worth every dollar. My wife and I are very pleased.
The blending performance is amazing. Simple example. I was making a smoothy and decided to through in some whole flax seeds. In a regular blender this would have been a disaster. In the Vitamix, the smoothie was completely smooth, no sign of the flax seeds! The machine is so powerful and versatile; I find myself looking forward to making heathy creative soups, sauces, and smoothies.
Clean up is a breeze. Take a little soap and warm water, blend it for about 10 seconds, rinse clean; that's it.
I hope this review helps. Happy blending and good health to you!

A little pricey, but worth it.

DateJanuary 7, 2013
Is $500+ a lot for a blender? Absolutely. But with this Vitamix, you get a lot for your money.
Blending? Obviously.
Soups? Check.
Ice cream? Check.
Ice crushing? Check.
Juicing? Check.
Smoothies? Check.
Rough chopping? Check.
Easy cleanup? Double-check. (My favorite part: water+detergent+high power=cleanup)
This Vitamix does a lot, and to make sure you get the most out of it, they've included a cookbook and DVD with ideas to get you started. It's made in America, so you're giving back to our economy, as well.
If you're looking for a stable workhorse in your kitchen that's capable of performing multiple functions, you really can't go wrong with this bad boy.

exceeding my expectations

DateJune 2, 2012
I like that the pitcher has just one piece so it is very easy to clean. It fits on the counter under the cabinet. I like the sleek simple design of this model. The cookbook has a lot of great ideas. The black bean burger recipe and whole fruit margaritas are very good. I've used it for salad dressings, soups and sauces. It quickly transforms ice and frozen fruits into a smooth smoothie. I switched to fruit smoothies for breakfast and feel good about increasing the amount of fruit & veg in my diet.
