Updated on November 20, 2012

Vitamix Blenders

Vitamix blenders have the reputation of being the best blenders on the market today for use at home and in professional kitchens. It is commonly used by professional chefs to prepare everything from creams, smoothies, soups, sauces, and other recipes. according to the advertising Vitamix has the power to handle the thickest, toughest ingredients! In my kitchen I use a blender to make fruit smoothies and green smoothies, juices, soups and ice creams, but Vitamix blender - other than being one of the best smoothie makers - can have many more uses.

      I just read another Hub you wrote which was on Hub Hopper so I could not leave a comment and I had a question. I was wondering if the Vitamix was any different than using a regular blender. Because if I have a regular one and the Vitamix is not in my budget - besides I eat those foods everyday regularly - and I have a normal blender, why should I buy the other one?

      For me, I like the Vitamix 5200 blender because of its many functions. It also posses a 7 year long warranty. Its automatic cleansing itself makes it exciting to use.

      Hi! I got my Vitamix 5200 last year from Costco and I am blown away by how incredible it is. I use it just about every day now. I can't believe I can make my own ice cream and almond milk! The vegetable cocktails are amazing. I'm developing a product that has to do with Vitamix. Send me any question you have related to the Vitamix blender via this link and I'll send you a free copy of the product when it is finished. I want to make sure I answer everyone's questions! Really excited to hear your responses.
