As I also posted on the Williams-Sonoma website, I had no qualms about spending $600 on this appliance after throughly researching reviews and videos and discussing with food pros. Am using at least 3x a day - hot soups, frozen fruit treats, dips, and smoothies and lassis to die for. So easy to use - no need to peel or remove seeds from fruits or vegetables. The 64-oz container is lightweight and easy to pour from; rubber lid snaps in tightly - no leakeage - and removes easily. It's important, for maximum effectiveness, to always put your wet ingredients in before the solid - this will prevent the solids from gumming up in the blades. As clearly stated in the accompanying recipe book - place the ingredients "in the order listed." Also a breeze to clean, and such a handsome addition to the kitchen counter - next to my Cuisinart, which is quickly becoming jealous from disuse. Not surprising that this is the blender used on Iron Chef - I keep freeze-framing on the TV image to reinforce my happy decision. Made in the USA and with a 7-year warranty, I expect this to provide many years of daily use. To close - I will provide my own recipe for a Mango Ginger Lassi (so refreshing) - 1 cup low-fat Kefir, 2/3 cup frozen mango chunks, 1 thin slice fresh ginger root unpeeled, 2 tsp turbinado sugar or honey, pinch of cardamom. Blend on smoothie setting. Serve in a wine goblet for best enjoyment.

I waited 5 months to post a review on this product to make sure I was as excited about it as I was when I first got it and I am pleased to say I am absolutely thrilled with this purchase! Although a huge investment, I believe I got my monies worth and will save money in the long run. I use it at least once a day to make healthy green smoothies. I also make delicious peanut butter using nothing but roasted peanuts. I make hummus, grind my own wheat flour from wheat berries (which by the way is much tastier than store bought wheat flour.) Furthermore I've made delicious salad dressings, latte's, hot soups, etc. I've even made liquid compost. One of my favorites is vegetable omelets. I chop the veggies in seconds while scrambling the eggs. Making things and clean up is so fast that this appliance is a real timesaver.

I save money because nothing goes to waste now. It goes in the freezer if I haven't used it by the time it peaks in ripeness. And its just as easy to work with frozen ingredients, its even preferable depending on what I'm making. Because it blends at such high speeds, the friction created actually makes soups and latte's hot enough to serve after about 4 to 5 minutes of running the machine when starting from room temperature ingredients.

The other advantage is the health benefits of using such good healthy ingredients all the time. It makes me wish I had invested in one of these years ago. I feel much more energetic these days and experience better work outs because I feel stronger.

Lastly I want to comment on the special features of this high end model. The stainless steel finish is beautiful and the automatic settings for smoothies, frozen desserts, and hot soups are a pleasure because I can walk away while making them (i.e.

Never thought we would spend this kind of money for a mixer/blender! But we did and love it!! Use it everyday for smoothies, salad dressings, frozen desserts etc etc. It is a workhorse and works as advertised. Saves a lot of time. We grate parmesan cheese and its perfect every time. Margaritas, fresh peanut butter..I could go on and on or maybe I have. Haha. Anyway, if in your budget, buy it.

After reading rave reviews on Amazon and other sites, we decided to purchase the Vitamix Pro 500. I have to say that we're disappointed in the quality of this blender. We've had it since January 2011 and had to return it in March for repairs to the blender mechanism. Today we found that the jar is leaking and needs to be repaired. I called Vitamix service and they knew immediately what needs to be fixed (makes me think that this happens frequently). They are sending me a new blade assembly which we need to install ourselves. It will take 2 weeks to get the repair kit because they use ground shipping. I asked about expedited shipping and was told it would cost $16. I complained that for a second time in 7 months we would have to wait for the repair of a very expensive blender. The customer service rep said she would see if she could get them to send it out for delivery by the end of the week, but no guarantees. In 7 months we are unable to use this blender for a total of one month, because of poor quality. If it had been only machanical defects I would say we had a lemon, but since the leaking jar is a completely separate problem, I believe it's a matter of poor quality.

I bought Vitamix (Reconditioned) 45 days ago and I am loving it. I am basically doing smoothies for my breakfast. Didn't try the soups or frozen deserts yet. It blends so quickly and smoothly. When I got the Vitamix , I did a test for black specs i.e to run plain water at high speed for 30-60 sec to see if there are any black specs/particles. I did find those black specs and I contacted customer service immediately. They responded quickly and told me that sometimes those specs are found in some jars and they replaced me with a new container. And the new container passed the test .. wohooo so happy :) Of course the shipping took some time but hey I got a problem free container that's enough for me.Then I started my everyday smoothies and I have so many recipes to try like soups , peanut butter , frozen ice cream but I know that vitamix is not going to disappoint. The clean up is so easy, just add 1 drop of soap with 1.5 cups of water and run it on high for 10 secs , that's it so simple , after that rinse it with plain water. Vitamix comes in a sturdy packaging along with recipe book, CD and a tamper tool.
My basic morning smoothie recipe :
~1.5 Bananas
~ Cored Apple
~2 Ice cubes
~Handful of spinach
~sweetener of your choice ( I use stevia and dates)
~Milk ( adjust to your consistency- almond,cashew etc)
Blend it all together until creamy smoothie and enjoy :) feel free to change the ingredients but always add ice.

To make dry blending and dry spice powders I purchased a 32 oz Dry blending container. Dry grains container has the blades in a different alignment than the wet container.The blade alignment is such a way that it will prevent caking at the bottom.So Dry grains container is especially designed for dry grains , spices or coffee beans etc.
