This item replaces the original tamper perfectly.
Sad godmother today
The vitamix that I have I thought would work better with two of these Tamper Tools.

I highly recommend this product if you damage your tamper for your vitamix 5200.

This tamper is sturdy and feels like it could take quite a bit more abuse than my previous one (the original that came with my Vitamix 5200).

Unfortunately, this tamper is 1/2 inch shorter than the original and it has seriously hampered its usefulness. In my 64ounce container it does not work nearly as effectively as my previous tamper since it leaves a significant distance between itself and the blade. While this may prevent it from colliding with the blade, it isn't long enough for me to make effective nut butters or ground smaller things into the blades. There simply isn't enough length to force some of the more difficult to grind foods down into the blade. I can still make peanut butter, but only if I make a greater amount, enabling the tamper to be more effective.

If I could still return this I would buy the true original from Vitamix themselves, or at least try and find accurate measurements before ordering another.

If you have a vitamix, you must have this. One came with my Vitamix. But should you have a husband that doesn't put the lid on and just uses this to push everything down deep into the vitamix machine and if the Vitamix chops off the end of this special tamper tool; you must buy a replacement. There is nothing that I have in my drawers that really can get down deep enough in the hole on the top of the lid to push everything down into the Vitamix to get it all blended up well.

Well worth the money.
enjoy.

This is the pusher for the Vitamix blender. It is identical to the one that came originally with the Vitamix. Our Vitamix is used by many volunteer cooks whose skills vary. If you push down hard on the tamper, the end can be shredded by the blade. Use reasonable pressure.

The tamper was the same as the original. It arrived on time and I was completely satisfied with the transaction. After I ordered, however, I noticed that it would have been less expensive to order directly from Vitamix.

Well, join the club. This is the replacement for that chewed up part. Next time, let's make sure the lid is on when we use the tamper, okay? (Doh!)

I have a Vita-Mix 5000 with a 64-oz container, and this tamper works great. If you have a different configuration, you might want to do a little investigation first, based on other reviews.

Size Name: TAMPER Verified Purchase
My vintage stainless commercial Vitamixer came with a wooden tamper that I was always reluctant to use. I took a chance that this would fit my carafe and sure enough it works! (see photo added) Works better than the old tamper in that it acts like a lid for the open portion of the feeder top; NO chance of smoothie sprinkles hitting the upper cabinets now....

Best to measure your carafe to be sure if this is the right length for you - with my mixer, this tamper reaches down to about one inch above the blade, which is *just* long enough to take care of the bubble that sometimes happens when blending, improving the consistency. I do wish it would reach a little closer to the blades for blending leafy ingredients but since I blend mostly fruit this tamper serves my needs very well.

Makes one of my best small appliances work even better; pleased with this purchase and highly recommended!

Edited To Add - after comparing this tamper to one just ordered and received along with a new carafe from the Vitamix Company I've been able to determine this is a genuine Vitamix tamper tool; it is embossed on the top of the tool with the Vitamix name. Both tools are exactly the same.

I had my Vitamix blender for almost a year, before I realized that this tool existed. Once I purchased it - all become clear - this tool is essential to the peak performance of using this type of powerful blender. I use my Vitamix for smoothies, soups, sauces, drinks -- and it is a significantly easier and faster process now that I have added the tamper tool. I find that I am making many more healthy foods/drinks with expert results!

I think it is top rack safe but mine fell to the bottom and melted. It is definitely a necessity.
