Color Name: Platinum Verified Purchase
I have had my platinum Vita-Mix 1363 CIA (Culinary Institute of America) model blender for just over a month. So far, I am loving it! I have definitely increased my consumption of fruits and vegetables since getting it. I start most mornings off with a smoothie now. I throw in whatever fruit is in season (I love berries, but I've used peaches, nectarines, plums, grapes, apples, bananas and various frozen fruits), a scoop or two of protein powder, milk or water, a couple handfuls of fresh spinach, a couple handfuls of ice and sweetener if needed. Surprisingly, the spinach doesn't noticeably change the flavor, but it does boost the nutritional content of the smoothie. In less than 10 minutes I can have my smoothie made, poured into a "to go" cup and have the machine all clean (just add warm water and a couple drops of dish soap- turn it on for 30 seconds, then empty and rinse the container). The smoothies always turn out 100% smooth- berry seeds, apple seeds, ice and other hard bits are totally pulverized and drinkable. I've made great low-cal salad dressings using fresh herbs, garlic, low fat cottage cheese, a splash of milk and salt (if you prefer, you could use Ranch dressing mix with cottage cheese and milk). I made a very satisfying tomato soup with home grown tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic, onion and salt. I've made great blended piña coladas, too! I'm having a lot of fun experimenting with different recipes. Because the Vita-Mix processes foods quickly, I'm actually finding that I'm making healthier eating choices. It's faster for me to put together a salad with pre-washed greens, veggies and homemade dressing than it is to go to the nearest fast food restaurant... and in the end, it's more satisfying and a LOT healthier.Read more ›

Color Name: 5200S Black
Instead of parroting what you've probably already gleaned, I'll focus on why/how I use this as a juicer; pricing; organics & Blendtec options. Although I'm a big fan, I try to be discerning & will includes some 'peeves' below.

JUICING
Aside from making nut butters, ice creams, hot/cold soups, flours & smoothies, the 5200 does a decent job juicing. If you use a base of watery veggies like cucumber or celery and blend half of the pitcher first, they will create enough liquid such that you needn't add much water. To give you an idea, I blended a full pitcher of only kale, adding only 1 1/2c of water. Once strained, the end result was 6 cups of liquid, 4 1/2 of which was pure kale juice. This will vary depending on the vegetables. So, if you're on the fence as to whether you'll get a juicer or a blender but can't afford both, go w/ Vitamix because you can do both.

Once blended, strain the smoothie through a 'nut milk bag' ($9) or an old pillow case/tee-shirt, if you're really pressed for cash; just squeeze it into a large bowl. An Omega or a Breville juicer might be more ideal, but chances are you'll have a lot more to clean, take up more space & be out an additional $150+. So, if you're concerned with cost, space or ease of cleaning, the 5200 is a good alternative for juicing.

"Isn't fiber good for you? What's the point of juicing?" Although fiber is good for you, the air & fiber in smoothies is quite filling. I can only drink so much at a time. By juicing, I can ingest a greater concentration of minerals & enzymes, instead of so much air & fiber. If you have digestive issues, juicing is a sure way to make sure those nutrients get into your system. I do prefer smoothies for fruits as that fiber regulates the absorption of sugars. This is why I love the Vitamix.

Color Name: Platinum
Why, you say, should I spend this insane amount of money for a blender? My answer: Because it's worth it. There is simply no comparison to other blenders. The Vitamix is the best. It really does crush ice effectively, make ice cream in seconds from frozen fruit and cream, and produces drinks and sauces that are utterly smooth, plus soups to die for. I make my own hummus and used it for baby food regularly, guests love it for silky frozen drinks, and it lasts--with zero problems. It's a quality device. Advertising is geared to health food because you can make drinks or soups from fresh produce and take advantage of the natural fiber that juicers take out, and they're right, but that's not why I bought it. I bought it because I hate the odd chunky bits of fruit in my smoothies, I hate taking blenders apart for cleaning and I wanted something I could depend on to do what I wanted each and every time. I've not been disappointed.

Update 3/18/10
I've had my Vita-Mix for many years and treasure it. My daughter has eyed it longingly so I finally bought her family one for Christmas, most especially so the little kids would get their veggies via tasty smoothies. I mean how else would you ever get a kid to eat raw kale (or me either, for that matter :). I found the current cookbook that came with her unit had so many terrific new recipes, I bought one for myself and am enjoying many new types of smoothies. The Autumn Harvest smoothie has sweet potato in it and is sensational. The Basil Lemonade is really delicious and the green smoothies are so packed with nutrition (plus taste good!) that we all feel energized. I can add flax seeds, sunflower kernels or other nuts to smoothies for an extra boost and know they'll always be completely smooth.
