Vitamix Review – Vitamix Reviews and Opinions

With the overwhelming popularity of this powerful blender, it’s not surprising that there are so many positive Vitamix reviews being shared each and every day. The Vitamix 5200 has literally revolutionized the way people think of blenders, and over the years it has become a staple appliance in many people’s kitchens.

Vitamix Review – Is a Vitamix Worth It?

Vitamix ReviewsLet’s face it. A Vitamix blender isn’t exactly what most would consider to be an inexpensive appliance, so are they really worth the investment?

There are two types of people in this world, those who will always buy the cheapest products on the market (even if quality is subpar), and those who true believers in the concept of “buy once, cry once”. Personally, we happen to fall into that camp.

While there are obviously blender options that are much less expensive than a Vitamix, they don’t typically have a long life-span — and before long, you’ll wind up having to replace that cheap blender model that you ended up compromising on. On the other hand, Vitamix blenders are backed by a 7-year warranty which will fix or replace any manufacturer problems for up to 7 years from the original date of purchase.

Add to that the fact that there’s simply no comparison between normal blenders and a Vitamix when it comes to blending capability and owner satisfaction, and we’ll shell out a little extra for a Vitamix any day of the week.

18 Vita Mix Blender Reviews Shared So Far...

  1. Sharon L. says:

    In January 1996, at age 53, my husband Gary had a heart transplant. Because of his heart transplant he has to take very strong drugs that can destroy the liver.

    Using the Vitamix (to prepare whole foods) has helped his overall health improve dramatically. One of the biggest problems with heart transplant patients is that they gain incredible amounts of weight because of the steroids.

    Gary uses the Vitamix everyday and he has only gained 5 pounds in the six years since his transplant. I used to use “run of the mill” mixers and wear them out and replace them.

    The quality of the Vitamix is awesome! It cuts up, grinds and mixes beyond my husband’s expectations. He uses it 365 days a year. We’ve had our Vitamix for over 10 years!

  2. Wilton B. says:

    I had arthritis so bad I could hardly walk. Then I started making whole food juice in the Vitamix. I juice oranges, apples, bananas and pineapples every day.

    I juice vegetables too. Now I do not take any medications, laxatives, or anything and I have no problems walking. I have had my Vitamix for over 6 years and there is no comparison.

    I can’t put a price on what the Vitamix has done for my health.

  3. Michelle and Greg says:

    The Vitamix saved me time — I work many hours and being able to literally throw the food in the machine and flip a switch was great!

  4. Nancy says:

    We are both suffering from high cholesterol, my own has been 257.

    After purchasing our Vitamix machine I read through the booklets that came with it to see what foods would be beneficial in lowering my cholesterol level. I have used a combination of 1 cup soy milk blended with ¾ cup oats, honey to taste, and strawberries or raspberries (1/2 c). In three weeks of consuming this at breakfast, my cholesterol has come down 32 points to 224!!! It would not have happened if not for this wonderful machine that made it so very easy and fast to prepare.

  5. Tom S. says:

    I believe it has been a major part of a near-miraculous recovery from concurrent bouts with advanced cancer and heart disease.

  6. Greg says:

    One day during my chemo treatments, my doctor leaned over and smirked at me saying, “I don’t know what you’re doing, keep doing it!” I attribute my incredibly fast recovery and good health, to my wife Michelle research on nutrition and the Vitamix’s capability to process the foods for us.

    When I began my Chemo treatments all I could ingest was Ensure, because until we got the Vitamix my feeding tube kept getting clogged. The Vitamix allowed me to begin eating whole foods again. The Vitamix also helped me while I relearned how to swallow.

  7. GMan says:

    Not only is the Vita Mix a GREAT blender, the company’s sevice is unbelievable! After 5 years of blending everything but my iPhone the speed dial was not working accurately so I called the company. They sent me a prepaid fedex label to send the unit to them with no cost to me. Not only did I receive a completely refurbished unit but also a brand new container with new blades. All of this for free. Now that is service!! I will never own another blender!

  8. TeresaR says:

    I just ordered my second Vitamix. I had my first one for about 12 years and it is tired but still running. I have paperwork coming to send my first one back for a rebate. The first one helped me raise a healthy daughter. She was a bit hard on it during high school smoothies but it kept going. She is 24 now. I do have a small travel blender but it doesn’t come close to my Vitamix! My family think I’m crazy for paying so much for a blender but it is so much more than a blender. It is a HUGE part of my life style. Hmmm . . . Wonder if Vitamix ever thought about creating a travel size.

  9. Ruth Viken says:

    When I got braces on my teeth, I was told to not chew nuts or raw vegetables. Being a vegetarian, that was not what I wanted to hear. So I started a daily routine of having veggie smoothies for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So, I didn’t have to give up my favorite food group. My Vitamix is about 20 years old and works great!!

  10. Cynthia B. says:

    Is it possible to feel love for an appliance? I resisted Vitamix because of the price–though I have easily spent the same amount trying other top-brand blenders only to be disappointed. Then with an impending jaw surgery in the family we decided to go for it. This is the best engineered product I have ever owned. And so simple! It is ridiculously simple to use and clean and yet we are daily finding more ways to use it. I sure wish I’d had it when I was feeding babies! We are eating more fruits and vegetables and wasting less. And because cleanup is so very simple (nothing to take apart!) I don’t hesistate to mix a healthy drink anytime. That’s important for me because I tend to get busy and skip eating. This product is actually one of those rare true bargains. The price is repaid in dollars because it helps us eat more economically, and it is repaid in so many other ways–helping us pack in nutrients for what I expect will be long-lasting returns on our health and mental well-being. And it’s a sheer pleasure to use. My only regret is that I did not buy it years ago.

  11. Tammy says:

    I purchased our Vita Mix 15 years ago because I wanted to incorporate healtier snack and meal optionns for our family. My children just love being able to make ice cream with wholesome ingredients in just minutes. I love the ability to make soups and fresh juices. Whenever I see the demonstrations for the Vita Mix my kids are not hesitant to try the juices – where else can you put spinach, carrots, apples, etc in a juice and have your children ask for ‘more please!” We have also used the dry container to make our own rice flour and home-made peanut butter. Thank you for a truly durable and totally versatile machine. I do not regret the investment at all.

  12. Jackie says:

    I just received my vita mix and used it for the first time. I love making breakfast smoothies and juices I tell you that all my ingredients was pulverized like no other time I have made my smoothies or juices. This is one of my best purchases ever. I know it is a little early to give a review b/c I have only had it for a few hours. I will give another and another over time intervals. So far I love, love, love it!

  13. Ray V. Moya says:

    I have had my Vita Mix for two years. It sat on the kitchen counter for the first six months W/O any real use (Crazy!!!). After coming home TOTALLY burned out each night from work and BAD eating habits, I began to use my Vita Mix.

    WHY DID I WAIT SOOOOOO LONG? I began to mix protein shakes each morning using tap water, protein, 1 banana, 1 cup of oats, frozen strawberries & blueberries, honey to taste and 1 teaspoon of cinnammon and WOW!!!! My energy shot through the ROOF!!!!

    I no longer feel tired, listless and groggy at work. I have tons of energy ALL day and simply feel beel knowing that as a result of my shakes, I am doing somthing VERY good for my body by having a hearty & healthy “breakfast”.

    I have recently begun to mix/make veggie drinks in the evening as well using ANYTHING I can find in my fridge. My favorite is mixing 1 celery stalk, 1 slice white onion, 1 tomato, handful of spinich, 2 carrots and 1 apple. After mixing and drinking these items for the first time, I actually felt my body TOTALLY relax, I slept better (Which has been VERY rare for the past three years!) and I awoke MUCH more refreshed as a result of my new dinner “snack”. I HONESTLY have not felt this good in MANY, MANY years! NO LIE!!!!!! THAT, alone is worth a million dollars to me.

    I will be a Vita Mix FAN and customer for LIFE!!! I will NEVER use anything else nor will I EVER be without my Vita Mix for the rest of my life!!!

    THANK YOU Vita Mix!

  14. Susan P says:

    My husband and I purchased our VitaMix four months ago and have been using it from 4 – 7 times daily ever since. I’ve had a blender in a cabinet for years that probably had only been out of the cabinet once or twice a year! Now I grind my own flour, make bread in it, make breakfast almost every day (blend of oatmeal, yogurt & fruits) and have made nearly every soup in the recipe book, most of them delicious! We consume at least five times the fruit and vegetables we used to and almost nothing is wasted. Before getting this, my husband ate only two vegetables: corn and carrots. Now he’s eating spinach, sweet potatoes, kale, tomatoes, squash, peppers of all kinds and anything else I throw in (that he usually doesn’t know about!) My joint pain is diminished, energy level is higher and my husband’s weight and cholesteral have come down since we got it. We LOVE it.

  15. Tom Edgar says:

    I don’t own a Vitamix but in an e mail to a Canadian friend I mentioned I was considering purchasing a blender. Here is her reply.

    “Oh my late husband Dennis would only ever buy the best of everything and twenty years ago he bought me a Vitamix. I use it regularly, especially for soups in winter, and iced desserts in summer. It is working now as good as when we first bought it and it hasn’t missed a beat.”

    My son has advanced cancers and as soon as I can scrape the baubees together I’ll be buying.

  16. Laurie Allen says:

    I have a question about Nancy’s review listed above. She said she mixed oats with soy milk and fruit. Did she used dry oats or were they cooked?

  17. Sheila says:

    I have not had my Vitamix for a week yet. But, I absolutely love it. I am very busy and work long hours. It allows me to prepare fruits and vegetables for fast meals to get all my daily nutrition. I can also make soups to take on the road and the easy clean up is awesome. I highly recommend the Vitamix to everyone I can. I am looking forward to years of great blending…

  18. Sheila says:

    And…. I have a 22 month old grand daughter who eats very healthy and has decided lately she doesn’t want her vegetables. However, she loves smoothies. So, guess what she drinks? A vegetable smoothie with banana and sweet cherries. She loves it and drinks her vegetables every day.
