There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So I started looking into BlendTecs and Omegas, and a couple others and they all seemed to be compared to the Vitamix and what I took out of the reviews was they all had issues, one brand in particular with the canister (substantiated by a friend of mine). So I decided that I didn't know what I was gonna do about a blender. I had read that Vitamix was not helpful concerning the black fleck issue, and that even if they sent a new canister it would suffer from the same issue. I had also read that this issue was not isolated to Vitamix containers and that other brands were affected (in my opinion very possible because one manufacturer likely makes all these seals).
So I was at a loss as to what to do. I thought I'd at least unbox the Vitamix again and make a smoothie, as the flecks are supposedly inert and I didn't figure one smoothie would kill me. I am replacing a couple of Ninja models at home and also use a cheap Oster at work (for comparison). This Vitamix pulverized my usual Kale, Spinach, frozen berry, banana, and yogurt concoction, without a large particle of Kale or anything else to be found. I knew the Vitamix units were good but I was still amazed, and loved it. Other than those damn flecks. So I decided to call the company and see if they gave me the same line everyone else was getting.
The lady I talked with was very helpful and understood my concern. She said they have found another manufacturer and are HOPING to be getting the new canisters by fall. When that occurs they said they would try and notify their customers with a warranty on record but that I should check back with them in the fall via phone or keep an eye on their website as they would have a notice on there. She completely supported me sending the unit back to Amazon for a refund and then order a unit when they come out with the new canister, and didn't by any means try to dissuade me from that. She also said that I would have no trouble getting a replacement canister when they are available if I chose to keep the unit. She also said I could get a replacement canister now but it would have the same issue. My blade is dated 1/15 for those that are trying to track dates.
So for the following reasons I decided to keep my unit and use it until the replacement canister is available:
1) I really don't want one of the other brands of blenders and see that they all have problems of their own.
2) I was sold by the smoothie I made with the Vitamix and don't want to go the rest of the year drinking chunky, coarse smoothies.
3) The flecks are minimal and in my opinion I have likely subjected my body to much more harmful things over the years.
4) A solution is supposedly on the way
This is just my decision making and I'm sure there are people that will under no circumstances ingest this stuff. I completely understand that and almost went that route. Hopefully this review helps anyone that is on the fence with the issue.
****UPDATE*** So after a month of daily smoothies and such, my wife tried the fleck test again and couldn't find anything. So maybe it is just associated with a new canister?? We are very happy we kept the Vitamix and use it daily. GLTA
****UPDATE 8/25/15**** Canisters with the new seal design are available. I called Vitamix and they stated that as a courtesy to their customers that they will swap out our current canister for one of the new ones if your current canister was affected by the black flecks. The only bummer is you have to send in your old canister (using a Vitamix provided pre-paid shipping label that is e-mailed to you), and when they recieve it they will ship out the new canister. The lady I spoke with said it could take up to 15 days.
I love my certified refurbished vitamix so much....so much..... Don't make me choose between it and a family member cause....cousins? Aunts? Mom? Who needs them I can whiz dry bay leaves in to silky smooth soups.
It's like magic!
I will admit to lusting after a vitamix for years. I do not exaggerate, it's been years but like most people a 700 dollar blender is a ridiculous amount to pay for a kitchen tool. Heck that's a months rent for people! It's serious money.
Then I learned of the certified reconditioned vitamix blenders and that price cut in half and suddenly an absolute "not paying that" price became half and the possibility of actually owning a real vitamix and realizing all of my blended dreams was a possibility.
Don't get me wrong, that's still the most expensive kitchen appliance we own...but it IS worth it.
I scoured ebay, hoped that the fates would allow me to find one for like a dollar at a yard sale but then I realized....I don't like going to yard sales and vitamix is such a hot thing you can't find a "cheap" one on ebay....this only fueled my desires, realizing that their value didn't really drop much for a reason. A BEAUTIFUL REASON! They are awwwwwwwwwwwwwwesome.
I have logged hours, ridiculous hours of youtube video watching of vitamix recipes and demos over the years...so when the time was right for us....we got a vitamix. Call it a late Christmas, early birthday, dream come true type deal. You know how people have bucket lists? I don't but if I did using a vitamix was on it.
It has a 5 year warranty.
It's clean and looks brand new.
I did some reading before purchasing and saw that the Vitamix peeps re-furbish/condiiton/work their mechanical magic on the motor base but the blender pitcher, tamper and cookbook are all new.
I mean.....it's prettttty much a new machine.
It all arrived in an official vitamix box, sealed up, packaged professionally, if you are squeamish about a "re-conditioned" unit, don't be. It's pretty much new, they just used an old motor base from what I can tell and I presume you won't be licking the inside of a motor base...right?
Okie, there's already a huge fan club online for Vitamix blenders.
Let me add a few details that I wondered about before purchasing and have enjoyed since I got my hands on one.
It blends dry bay leaves in soups/sauces into a silky smooth pure bliss.
You ever monkey around with bay leaves? They don't break down in soups so you need to fish them out. If you use "ground" bay leaves, they are sharp and pokey little leave saw dust bits all through your sauce/soup.
I now blend them whole in my soups and sauces and it's like a whole new world.
Also same can be said for dried coriander, I could never get theose little seed pods to break down enough in my soups to make a nice mouth feel, always sharp saw dust bits floating around...well NO MORE.
You can make your own hot sauces in seconds by tossing whole, dried, chili pods in the blender, with some garlic cloves (leave the paper skins on cause the vitamix destroys them in to silky nothingness!!!!) some vinegar, salt, whatever and blend until your homemade hot sauces makes the bottle stuff look like ketchup.
Homemade date shakes. YUM. My old ninja blender couldn't demolish chewy dates....the thing about a sticky, chewy thing like a date when you blend it with cold milk and ice they just get hard and knock around most blades...NOT THE VITAMIX....it makes the BEST date shakes,
I use the cheap, tougher dates you buy in bulk, and the vitamix turns them in to a gorgeous smooth paste. Sometimes I stop processing early so my shake has a bit of chewy nuggets of pure date goodness in it.
Since purchasing the vitamix in january we have had a gorgeous, hearty, healthy, delicious and filling fruit/veggie smoothie every morning.
We have increased our greens consumption dramatically and it's a been great.
Normally a nightmare in regular blender smoothies but my vitamix turns them into silky smooth beautiful drinkable shakes!
Because it's so great at breaking things down I add flax seeds, or whole dried oats or carrots or chia seeds or whatever to almost any sweet treat I make now just because it incorporates it so completely and smoothly why not add extra nutrition to the treat?
I could go on and on and on and onnnnnn.
I have used my vitamix literally EVERY day since purchasing, usually twice a day and some times more.
It really is worth it.
