TURNS OUT THAT WAS AN AMAZING IDEA ON MY PART. Spinach, chard, and other greens brightened up with some celery, apples, and ginger are super delicious. Avocado and banana makes them creamalicious! Drink them fast if you don't have a lot of time, or savor them slowly.
I have had a 'salad' EVERY DAY for the last 2 weeks, and I think I'm on a roll! But wait! There's more!
FOR PEOPLE BAD AT PLANNING:
• If you're on your way home from work and realize you don't have any food at home, you can pick up any combination of greens and fruits at the grocery store on the way home that you can slam in the blender.
• If you get home and you find you have a weird collection of fruit and veg that would never make a proper balanced salad, fear not! Vitamix DON'T CARE! You STILL got yourself a delicious green smoothie.
FOR LAZY PEOPLE:
• Cleaning is super easy. Drop of detergent, whizz it around, rinse it out, call it a day
• Okay, so you have to wash your cutting board and knife too. Deal with it.
Disclaimer: Kale still tastes like kale (gross), so maybe just don't try that) and wheatgrass should be clipped in half/thirds so it doesn't wrap around the blades like hair around a vacuum cleaner's brush.
Even though it says reconditioned, it looks brand new. It comes with a tamper, recipe book, owners manual, and a certified reconditioned checklist to go through before you use it. It fits perfectly on our counter under our kitchen cabinets. The cord is 6 feet long that wraps under the Vitamix. Easy to use and very easy to clean.
This machine is very easy to use and clean up. We use our Vitamix everyday. We mostly make smoothies, soups, and ice cream. After doing a lot of research we decided to go with the refurbished one as a lot of reviews are saying this is the best deal with the Vitamix. We saved over $100 going with the refurbished one. Very impressed with the VItamix and glad we finally decided to spend the money on one.
Update 12/22/17: Year later and the Refurbished Vitamix is still working great, Upgraded to 5 stars.
9/13/17 UPDATE: Have had this baby a month and have used it EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Often, I use it twice a day. My boyfriend also uses it freuqnetly and he is kind of rough on appliances. Well, it still works AMAZINGLY. Just as good as day one. No problems what so ever. I mainly use it for smoothies - it crushes ice, frozen fruit, etc. very well. When I make green smoothies with spinach or kale, the leafy greens are always completely pulverized. I am a life-long vegetable hater, but since getting my Vitamix I've been getting my daily recomended serving every day in the form of a delicius smoothie. I'v also made some mean frozen marharits and coffee beverages. Will update again in a few months! I have a feeling I will be using this blender for years. 100% pleased with my purchase!
THE SHORT REVIEW: Best purchase ever.
-Certified reconditioned = literally as good as new and monumentally less money. Some of these blenders were returned without ever being opened or used. Some were used 1-2x. All have motors less than 1 yr old.
- Came looking and feeling new, with a working parts, instuction manual, cookbook, and reconditioned checklist (see image).
- CRUSHES ice. This was my biggest complaint for my previous blender. Makes perfect smoothies, margaritas, etc.
-Easy to operate , easy to clean, easy to store (fits on counter under cabinet, cord rolls easily under appliance)
-Seems like an extremely durable piece of equipment. Great for daily use.
THE LONG REVIEW: I'm a poor college student, so spending more than $100 on anything (much less a blender) had me extremely anxious. Alas, my $12 blender was on its last legs - I had to crush ice in a bag before blending it, and it smelled of burning plastic. I drink smoothies everyday so knew I needed something better. As I obsessively researched Blenders, the Vitamix kept calling to me. Time and time again I would talk myself out of it. "You can't spend $700 on a blender. Are you kidding? Keep looking." Time and time again I opted to put a mid-price blender in my Amazon cart. But...time and tine again I double checked their reviews to find complaints of even the most initially well-performing models falling apart after 1 year. I wanted a blender that would last, and I wanted a blender that was cheap. This, I realized, was a fool's errand.
When I discovered Vitamix's certified reconditioned blenders I felt, at first, that they were too good to be true. But I did more research, poring over the Vitamix website, youtube video comparisons, and owner reviews. I found out that many "certified reconditioned " blenders have in fact never been used! Example: your great-grandma orders on off QVC, forgets doing so, orders another, and sends the 2nd one back. Though never opened, this returned blender is inspected and resold as certified reconditioned. Even IF used before, parts are replaced to male the blender ad good as new. No moter is over 1 yr old in a certified reconditioned vitamix. So...I decided to click "order now."
I was still nervous until it arrived. But as soon as I saw it and used it I knew I'd made the best decision. My certified reconditioned Vitamix looked and smelled so pristine and new! It worked great the first time. I made a chocolate banana smoothie and it effortlessly pulverized the frozen banana and ice cubes in less than 30 seconds. The result was the smoothest smoothie I've ever had. I have used it several times and every time I am amazed!
Cleanup is a breeze. Simply fill the blender halfway with warm water, add a few drops of liquid dish detergent, then blend amd rinse! Storage is also easy - it fits nicely on my counter top under my cabinets, and it's 6ft cord wraps neaty under the base.
If you order a reconditioned vitamix, which I encourage, it will come with a little note and checklist explaining it. I've attached mine with my review.
I intend to update this review every so often. But as of now I give ny certified reconditioned vitamix a solid 5 stars!
1. It take up less space. The container is significantly shorter (but holds the same amount). It's wider. It now slides under my counter tops with the container on the base. Previously (with the 5200), I had to keep the container in my cupboard.
2. It makes less noise. Not sure why, but it does.
3. I rarely have to use the tamper stick. With the 5200, I needed the the stick over 50% of the time. With the 5300... may 5%.
4. The 5300 has a pulse setting. With the 5200 you had to use the on/off switch as some sort of makeshift pulse if you wanted to dice veggies.
I hope this helps. I've been using Vitamix machines for years, so you'll be happy with whatever model you get. The 5300, in my estimation, is the best value.
