The Vita-Prep is really a chef's dream come true. This thing is a workhorse. We've had it for 2 years now, and it still works just like the day we bought it. We love it. Smoothies are a breeze, and it will chop up stuff so efficiently that you could make juice out of just about anything. Whole Carrots = Carrot juice. Cabbage = Cabbage juice. Old laptop? No problem, laptop juice. This thing grinds up anything - Nuts into dust, ice into gelato. If money is an issue, the regular vita-mix is almost as good and the difference is not that significant. I decided to spend the extra money over the regular Vita-Mix because I figured that I'd have it for a long timeand I didn't want to look back on the purchase and wish and wonder about the nicer model. And, while 30-50% more money than the regular Vita-Mix, I wouldn't say it is really 50% better, but noticeably better for sure. I'm happy that I spent the extra money, but probably would have also been happy with the regular vita-mix. One difference noted by another reviewer's comment is that the regular Vita-Mix has a 7 year warranty, but the Vita-Prep only has a 3 year warranty. The Vita-Prep is actually built a little tougher, but I suppose they reduce the warranty since it is intended for continuous commercial use. If money isn't an issue, or if you're somebody who just really appreciates the best, go ahead and buy this and you'll enjoy it for many many years. Whatever you do, make sure that the vita-mix model you buy has a variable speed control - don't buy their cheap one.

UPDATE 04/24/2012
I have now had this unit for almost 5 YEARS. We use this almost EVERY DAY to make smoothies and green drinks, and it is still going strong. We haven't experienced any problem at all with this unit. Surprisingly, we are also still using the original blender cup and blades. I had expected to replace that by now. Its not quite as sharp as it was when new, but not enough difference to warrant replacing yet.

A little background is in order so that I can establish to prospective buyers' satisfaction that I know what I'm talking about.

I've been a Vita-Mix owner since 1988. My first machine was a new 4000 bought direct from Vita-Mix that was still working perfectly when I traded it up for a 5000 ~10 (give or take) years ago. I've been very happy with my 5000 but it started behaving in a quirky manner--I discovered that this was due to the blade assembly's having become loose over time (I'm going to assume that this is in part due to the fact that my smoothies push the recommended percentage of frozen ingredients to the limit and I blame myself for not noticing it at once). Fortunately, I have the special wrench for tightening the assembly's nut but it was clear that the bearings had become at least somewhat stripped. I was loath to spend $100 on a new assembly or container with assembly and since I like and often make use of the 5000-series' very low variable speed and minimum blending amount, I was disinclined to trade in my 5000 on a Next Generation model, at least not at this time.

I'd been aware of the Vita-Preps (there's also a 2-peak HP model) for years and was initially curious about why the Prep 3 had a 3-peak HP motor rather than the 2-peak of the 5000-series machines. I made it my business to find out and will not only share the reasons but will compare the performance of both the Prep 3 and my 5000. I recently ran across a deal online on a new Prep 3 that was much too good to pass up and I figured that I could jump on it and still use my 5000 as a trade-in towards the price of a Next Generation unit should any disposable income find itself in my wallet (I freely admit to being an appliance junky--there are worse character flaws).

But I got my first Vita Mix in the late 1970's -- the 3600 (which they claim wasn't made till early `80's but I know where I lived when I had it -- and I'm 98% certain it was 1979). It was a 3+ HP and it did smoke when I abused it (by kneading bread dough at the high setting -- didn't read the directions). I used it off and on for years, sometimes stored it in garages or basements for a few years and forgot about it. It was exposed to bugs, animals and the elements for long periods, but when I decided to use it, it always worked. This past year I used it a lot for green drinks, smoothies, and sorbets. I like sorbets a lot and the frozen fruit is hard on the machines if they don't have enough horse power.

The green drinks and sorbets became part of my daily diet (I liked the Raw Family's "Green for Life" program) so I needed another Vita-Mix at my boyfriend's house. I bought the 5200 thinking it would be like my 3600. The 5200 is fine if it is your first Vita-Mix and you haven't experienced the 3600's higher HP, or if you don't really need the HP. I liked the metal container of the 3600 better -- I could toss it in the dishwasher anytime. It was easier to get a vortex going in the 3600 than in the 5200; I attributed that to the smaller size of the 3600 container. The 5200 worked OK, just seemed less effective, slower -- something a little dissatisfying when I filled it with frozen fruit and a bit of yogurt, or kefir, and/or fruit juice. Then one day, the 5200 went DEAD in the middle of a sorbet preparation. I was NOT happy: the 3600 has gone for 30+ years, and the 5200 died in less than a year, and was never quite doing it for me. I wanted my sorbet!
