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.
Well worth the money.
I have written this review as there are apparently some imitation tampers for sale which are not the same size and quality of the original Vita Mix tamper. You can buy this item with confidence that you are getting the real thing.
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 am the King of smoothies at our house, and one of my responsibilities is to make my wife and I a smoothie for breakfast before we head to work. Anyways, I was in a rush this particular morning, and I didn't use the lid on our Vitamix 5200, and sure enough, one mistake later, I am listening to the sound of plastic chewed up with the sweet fragrance of strawberries, pineapple, bananas, and peaches... If this wasn't reason in itself to be upset, my wife reminded me about a conversation we had the prior day about this VERY situation. Suffice to say, my wife wasn't all too happy, and I needed to resolve the issue. I immediately hopped on Amazon, and quickly found and ordered this OEM part which is the replacement for the standard 64-oz containers.
Thanks to Amazon, I believe this should put me back in good graces with her - that's how it works anyhow right?

love it. Original that came with blender broke on me (my fault as I did not add lid and slip right through) so I ordered a replacement in a hurry so my husband wouldn't notice and... Read morePublished 3 days ago by clorenal
