I love it. easy to use and the clean up is a breeze.
No matter how many blades a machine might have, this is still the best blender mixer on the market. certainly worth the money.
It comes with a really nice recipe book too which I love.

First of all, let me join the others in saying that this appliance can truly be life-changing and I should have purchased it years ago. If you are considering this blender to eat healthier by adding fruits, vegetables and other natural, nutritious foods to your daily diet then don't wait. In just couple of weeks I have learned the basics and use my Vitamix at least once daily. I've lost weight and feel better, and I eat out just for the convenience much less. The ingredients to make a smoothie and many other recipes keep well in the fridge and freezer and it is easy and economical to have a healthy meal at hand.

However, this particular Vitamix may be over-kill for most. You pay around an extra $100 for the 3 presets over the 5200 model but they only add a small measure of convenience in my experience. The hot soup setting doesn't make the soup all that hot. I made a small batch of tomato soup and I had to transfer it to the stove for warming before serving. In other words, without the preset you would just turn the blender off when the soup is the desired consistency and then warm it on the stove OR you would keep it going in the blender past the preset time until the soup is hot enough (an oddly inelegant way to warm soup). The preset offers little to no benefit. The frozen dessert setting is even less useful. You have to stand over the appliance with the tamper while making a frozen dessert so adjusting the speed and duration of the blender can be done on the fly. Even the smoothie setting is only marginally helpful. If you like your smoothies somewhat thick, as I do, you are going to be watching the blender to make sure it doesn't "cavitate", so to speak (create an air pocket around the spinning blade).

As I also posted on the Williams-Sonoma website, I had no qualms about spending $600 on this appliance after throughly researching reviews and videos and discussing with food pros. Am using at least 3x a day - hot soups, frozen fruit treats, dips, and smoothies and lassis to die for. So easy to use - no need to peel or remove seeds from fruits or vegetables. The 64-oz container is lightweight and easy to pour from; rubber lid snaps in tightly - no leakeage - and removes easily. It's important, for maximum effectiveness, to always put your wet ingredients in before the solid - this will prevent the solids from gumming up in the blades. As clearly stated in the accompanying recipe book - place the ingredients "in the order listed." Also a breeze to clean, and such a handsome addition to the kitchen counter - next to my Cuisinart, which is quickly becoming jealous from disuse. Not surprising that this is the blender used on Iron Chef - I keep freeze-framing on the TV image to reinforce my happy decision. Made in the USA and with a 7-year warranty, I expect this to provide many years of daily use. To close - I will provide my own recipe for a Mango Ginger Lassi (so refreshing) - 1 cup low-fat Kefir, 2/3 cup frozen mango chunks, 1 thin slice fresh ginger root unpeeled, 2 tsp turbinado sugar or honey, pinch of cardamom. Blend on smoothie setting. Serve in a wine goblet for best enjoyment.

I waited 5 months to post a review on this product to make sure I was as excited about it as I was when I first got it and I am pleased to say I am absolutely thrilled with this purchase! Although a huge investment, I believe I got my monies worth and will save money in the long run. I use it at least once a day to make healthy green smoothies. I also make delicious peanut butter using nothing but roasted peanuts. I make hummus, grind my own wheat flour from wheat berries (which by the way is much tastier than store bought wheat flour.) Furthermore I've made delicious salad dressings, latte's, hot soups, etc. I've even made liquid compost. One of my favorites is vegetable omelets. I chop the veggies in seconds while scrambling the eggs. Making things and clean up is so fast that this appliance is a real timesaver.

I save money because nothing goes to waste now. It goes in the freezer if I haven't used it by the time it peaks in ripeness. And its just as easy to work with frozen ingredients, its even preferable depending on what I'm making. Because it blends at such high speeds, the friction created actually makes soups and latte's hot enough to serve after about 4 to 5 minutes of running the machine when starting from room temperature ingredients.

The other advantage is the health benefits of using such good healthy ingredients all the time. It makes me wish I had invested in one of these years ago. I feel much more energetic these days and experience better work outs because I feel stronger.

Lastly I want to comment on the special features of this high end model. The stainless steel finish is beautiful and the automatic settings for smoothies, frozen desserts, and hot soups are a pleasure because I can walk away while making them (i.e.

Never thought we would spend this kind of money for a mixer/blender! But we did and love it!! Use it everyday for smoothies, salad dressings, frozen desserts etc etc. It is a workhorse and works as advertised. Saves a lot of time. We grate parmesan cheese and its perfect every time. Margaritas, fresh peanut butter..I could go on and on or maybe I have. Haha. Anyway, if in your budget, buy it.
