5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded high expectations, September 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Vita Mix The Vita Prep 3 Blender, 20.25 x 8 x 9 inch -- 1 each. (Kitchen)
Vita-mix blender was reported to be the best for Vegans, Raw Food and challenging food stuffs. After using the Vita-Prep 3 for over a year, its still going strong with daily use atomizing ice cubes to wheat grass. The extra cost for the commercial grade 3 HP motor has paid its way by muscling through thick fruit smoothies without smoking the motor. A useful improvement was a newly designed lid that locks to the container with easy to use 'ears'. Our version will occasionally pop off during use if the lid is not pushed down hard.

Good review but bear in mind that the usage you describe wouldn't smoke the motor on the household machines (at present, the 5200) either, plus they have a much longer warranty. Still, I've always been tempted by the Vita-Prep. Maybe if I ever trade up my 5000, although the way it's going (almost 7 years), it doesn't look likely for a long time. Vita-Mix really knows how to build machines.
I finally had a chance to see the new lid at a local store and to tell you the truth, I prefer the pop-off. I realize it needs to be seated properly (you can hear the snap when it's in place) but it seems the "ears" on the new one might break off at some point. I like keeping things simple. :)
