Recommendations on a Vitamix blender
I'm also wondering what makes it so popular and would cheaper brands work as well? (will be doing carrots, frozen fruits, nuts, etc)

@yoshim This is the best price I have ever seen for this, and if you’re ready to buy I would jump on it. I bought this model on sale for $350 and it’s worth every penny.playnicee1 wrote: ↑Jun 21st, 2018 8:25 pmQUICK! This deal is ending very soon!!

Thanks, just bought. I didn't know it comes with new containers, I thought they would be refurbishedjerrysiz wrote: ↑Jun 21st, 2018 10:34 pm@yoshim This is the best price I have ever seen for this, and if you’re ready to buy I would jump on it.

The reconditioned models come with new containers, lids, and tampers, freshly sharpened blades, a fully inspected base, and a 5 year warranty. They’re virtually indistinguishable from a new machine. Also, if you buy from Vitamix you can split the cost into up to 5 payments with no interest (and google for free Vitamix shipping codes, there’s a ton of affiliate bloggers out there).
This standard (C series) model has all the power and functionality of the newer models, just without all the fancy bells and whistles (which are totally unnecessary IMO). The only possible (minor) negative I found is that the container sometimes felt a bit large for small batch things like smoothies (but is great for large batch recipes like soup), so I eventually bought an additional smaller container (32oz wet container) for convenience and flexibility , but you can absolutely use the 64oz container for everything (I did for quite a while before buying the 2nd container).

Everything is brand new except the base and blade, reconditioned vitamixes are the best deal going (especially at this price).

My wife uses hers daily in the morning and doesn't get washed till the evening, no issues so far.

I usually wash right away (since it’s so easy just to turn it on with some water and a few drops of soap for 30 seconds), but I don’t think it would be a problem. In all the years I’ve used mine, the only thing that has ever stained my container was pureeing a hot soup that had a lot of turmeric in it (I should have known better, that stuff is notorious).
