The price is high compared to the Magic Bullet and similar blenders, but the thoughtful design and solid construction is what you're paying for - and it's worth it in my opinion. The produce is ground up very quickly and thoroughly, no matter what you put in there. The idea of using one container for mixing and drinking is pure genius, and makes preparation and cleanup very easy. I just rinse two pieces out when I'm done, and every once in a while will run them through the dishwasher (but take the gasket off first). The small footprint of the machine is much appreciated in a small NYC apartment: the larger version with the more powerful motor would have been difficult to find room for on the countertop.
There are some fiddly things to be aware of, which are made clear in the instructions but apparently can still cause problems if not thoroughly understood. First, items have to be added in a certain order. I cut out that part of the quick-start guide and put it up on my fridge, for ease of reference. Second, you need not follow any particular recipe (the one I'm enjoying right now is beet, apple, frozen mango, carrot and fig - because that's what was in my fridge!) but you do need to judge correctly how much water to add, and also cut hard items (like the beet and carrot) into small (1/2-1") pieces. Third, you need to rock the container around a bit to make sure it's seated completely into the base. Plopping it in with the tabs aligned isn't enough. Finally, you need to start at the low speeds but then go to the highest speed - not doing that can overtax the motor and won't get you the results you want.
Overall, a terrific product from a company that knows how to design serious blenders. My mother bought one of their original models several years ago and uses it all the time. We joked that she should get this one when hers wears out, but she will probably have a long time to wait before that happens.
I am a person who is not wild about eating vegetables – never have been. And I hate salads! And like everyone else I’m often too busy to prepare the best foods. However, needing my veggies I decided to see if I could get them by way of blending them into drinkable form. (Think NutriBullet). My typical smoothie is almond milk, kale, spinach, raw carrot, raw beet, ginger, and banana. In the right proportions it tastes excellent.
Some minor drawbacks are: I will often add cashews and goji berries to the above but they often don’t get completely ground up. (Minor point) and could be operator error due to loading order of ingredients. And yes, yes, you must take the blending container apart and rinse the container, gasket, and blade base after each use – but honestly this only takes about 4 seconds!
The only real drawbacks to this machine are the noise level – she is very loud! And the price – wow! But it is something I use almost every day and goes a long way toward keeping me healthy. Also, I did have a Nutribullet ($99.00) but the blade base rusted out after about a month. The Vitamix is comprised of much better quality materials and superior engineering. Plus there’s a 5 year warranty. Other than waking the neighbors while its running, this is a great buy.
The S30 is perfect for me as I make daily smoothies and dont need to clean a big machine.
I am also able to put in raw vegetables and get a smooth consistency, something I hadn't had in the Ninja.
I am VERY pleased with my Vitamix!!!
Also, the caps for the two drink cups are really big and bulky which strikes me as a design flaw. Their size doesn't offer anything new and meaningful, so it's more like overproduction than superior design - which takes up space in my cupboard.
As a blender, the S30 is great and would rate a 5 if not for the 3 points I just noted.
