4.0 out of 5 stars Generally good but a few minor issues 17 Oct 2013
Overall, it's a very good unit. Customer service is very slow but good. A few design issues but can't complain. If I was to buy again I might look at the competition more closely.

PROS:

- powerful

- fast

- really finely blends smoothies and other mixtures, much better than my old, top of the range Philips blender.
- support did not quibble about how I damaged the unit and fixed it free of charge, collecting it and returning it at their expense.

- looks cool

- full manual controls

- minimalist

- light, all-in-one jug - lifts off the base easily. My old Philips blender's jug was much heavier (glass), and as the blade section unscrewed in the same direction as when one unscrews the jug from the motor base, if the jug ever got stuck to the base, which happened half the time when blending with the jug full, if you tried to use force to unscrew it, then you'd end up unscrewing the base and spilling the contents of the jug out all over the blender motor base! It would be quite a job to salvage the contents and remove/clean the jug blade section etc. No problems like this with the Vitamix.

CONS:

- the jug does not attach to the base but sits on top. This means if you select the maximum setting and turn it on (you're not supposed to do this), the jug rides up and the teeth get mangled on the drive socket of the base. This is what happened to mine. :-( Also it means you can run the blender whether the jug is attached or not - not that important but most blenders won't let you do this.

1.0 out of 5 stars no Quibble 7 year warranty.... 13 Aug 2012
well they said there was a no quibble 7 year warranty on this machine, I now know what they mean.... Vitamix will ignore your emails and phonecalls, so no quibble no correspondance.

The jug has cracked along the bottom, not a show stopper, but very poor response, then I used it to make a smoothie on Sunday, terrible smell, the motor was smoking and stinking, so we had to switch off, the smoothie was pretty runny so nothing that should have stressed the motor like that.

I have called vitamix and had no response and also sent messages, again no response. Very expensive bit of kit for its poor lifespan and customer service.

If like me you only really used it for smoothies, buy a £30 smoothie maker!

5.0 out of 5 stars MORE THAN JUST A BLENDER - FABULOUS 26 Mar 2013
Ok so purchased this a red Vitamix recently at the ideal home show 2013 (closes 1st April 2013.

They currently have a deal of either the black, red or white Vitamix with the 2L jug and the 1L jug included in the package with a massive receipe book and the plunger included for £459.00 I managed to wrangle a deal for the dry 1L blender as well in the package all for £506.00 - the 1L wet jug retails for about £100.00 - £125.00 same for the dry 1L jug. - so huge saving and the dry blender comes with its own cook book - fab!

The demonstration was amazing and I had a feast in the half hour I was watching everything before deciding to purchase. Ice cream was made in this jug with the jug turn upside down in case anyone doubted it was icecream - tasted fabulous - unbelivably, have a carrot and piece of cabbage was in the icecream but you could not taste it and like the lady pointed out a very good point - a way to make healthy ice cream with frozen fruit and veg (not frozen in demo) and the kids would be none the wiser -

An amazing soup was made and left to blend for 5 minutes and turned from cold to hot - what I really loved about the soup was that EVERYTHING WAS PUT IN - the suede with the skin, ginger with the skin, stalks everthing with the corriander leaf and it came out as smooth as silk, unlike a normal blender and it made a very tasty soup (nice tip with unsalted cashew nuts to add to creaminess of the soup without adding milk) - when I make soup its about an hour - but with the Vitamix - done in 8 minutes - fabulous!!

Big chunks of ice were also chucked in with some water added and hey presto - crushed ice like the snowcone machine.

4.0 out of 5 stars God Blender 13 Jan 2014
By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Like most everyone, I deliberated a great deal about purchasing a kitchen appliance this expensive. Then, I saw a demonstration, and realized I could dispense with three of my other kitchen appliances. I have not looked back.
This comes with a wide ranging cookbook and a DVD which demonstrates how to use the machine. It was packaged very securely, but easy to open, and get to the Vitamix.

I am able to juice, chop and blend like a pro. Best of all, it fits right under my cabinets, so it can stay right where I need it! I blend juice from whole foods, cook soup from scratch without a stove, mix up smoothies, make ice cream, in a matter of minutes. And, because of its compact size, I have the most powerful Vitamix motor in a unit that fits in the standard 18" space underneath my cabinets.

I am now able to provide the daily amount of fruits and vegetables that I have long wanted. I place my ingredients in the blender and have a nutritious smoothie within minutes. I have made soups, sauces and dips. The cookbook is convenient and filled with scrumptious recipes. I use this daily for my smoothies. It is handy and accessible, and at the end of the week, I raid my refrigerator of leftovers and mix either a soup or a smoothie.

The Vitamix included A Vitamix Creations Galaxy Class Base, 48-oz BPA-free container, 300-recipe "Vitamix Creations" cookbook, tamper, dual-sided silicone spatula.
