Rated 5 out of 5 by remmy from Better than what I used in Culinary School This model is newer than what I used while at The Culinary Institute of America. As a recent graduate, I got this as a gift and couldn't be more pleased. Mostly I have made nut butters in it, which all turned out smooth. Everyone knows that nut butters are one of the most difficult things to make well at home, so this model passed the test! I did end up overheating it a few times to the point that it shut off on its own for self preservation, but I am a professional and use this often. When it over heats I just put the base in front of a fan or even covered outside to cool down. I have been able to use it again after 20 minutes of cooling off. Also, the recipe packet that came with it was enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeniseinSANDIEGO from Vitamix Loving Family I reluctantly purchased my beautiful turquoise Vitamix in 2015, It had been on my Wish List for many years but could not justify spending so much money on a blender. After our last average store bought blender broke I decided to invest in a Vitamix. This machine is used 2 - 5 times everyday! I cant tell you how happy I am with this product. I use to place it in our cabinet after each use because I hate having items out on my kitchen counters, but after having to move it so many times a day we just left this beauty out on full display! Easy to use, Easy to clean, makes our smoothies in seconds. If you still have this item on your Wish List- BUY IT. You wont regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rdbac from Love My Vitamix! I was tired of drinking chunky smoothies from my old blender, so I asked my husband for a Vitamix. What a difference. Well blended, smooth-smoothies in no time. Clean-up is a breeze. Currently, I am in the process of using my Vitamix for other recipes. I have tried several soups and I love it to make my own salad dressing. I quit buying salad dressing at the grocery store because the dressing I make with my Vitamix are much tastier. As far as the features on my Vitamix, I love the covered handle on my 32 ounce container. I also like having control over my settings. I really have no need for preset settings. Yes, the motor is louder than my old Kitchen Aid blender, but it does a superior job. I am extremely happy with my purchase and I look forward to trying new recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tee Cee from I Can't Believe I Have a Vitamix. My heart leaps when I walk in the kitchen to see it. I find myself wanting to give it a hug. Best kitchen tool ever. When my last highly-rated blender exploded when I was making a chocolate smoothie. I said, "That's it" With Vitamix you do get what you paid for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marcia 60 from My best gift to me! I purchased the CIA Vitamix Professional for myself at Christmas. I Love the ease of use and the simple clean up. I have made smoothies, soups and pesto thus far. This machine does everything that it promises to do. Follow easy directions for use and create your own recipes. I am not fond of the cook book that came with the machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JessLC from It's...okay. It blends most things smooth. Ice isn't smooth and is always still chunky unless I blend for a long time and then it's watery. Any powders I use are still gritty. Pretty disappointed for how much I paid, honestly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellie Belle from vitamix I received it for a Christmas gift. I make breakfast smoothies almost every morning and the Vitamix is wonderful. I have vegetables and fruit combo to grind and it has no problem.
