The short version?
If you have an older model that still works, there really is no need to spend the money to upgrade. There are slight differences between the two, but each gives you the same results. If you've never had a Vitamix and are tempted, you would not go wrong with this model.
THE MINOR DIFFERENCES:
5000: Nothing happens when you plug it in.
6300: When you plug it in, a blue light comes on (see photos).
5000: The lid is a bit hard to get on.
6300: The lid style changed and it's much easier to get on/off.
5000: The container has a simple plastic handle.
6300: The container style has changed and it has a more molded hand grip (see photos) which makes it easier to handle.
5000: There are two toggle switches--one to switch from variable to high speed and one to turn the machine on/off.
6300: There are two toggle switches--one for pulse and one to start/stop the machine (the machine is ON when you plug it in).
5000: When making a smoothie (juice, yogurt, protein powder, frozen whole strawberries), I just use high speed and it works fine.
6300: When making a smoothie, there's a smoothie setting. It wasn't as powerful as the high speed setting on the 5000 but it did get it mixed it just took a bit longer.
Overall, it's a great machine. That said, I personally don't see the need for the specific settings (smoothie, frozen desserts, soup) but they don't hurt anything. I've also never had a need for the pulse setting, but now that I have it, I will try it.
My basic morning smoothie recipe :
~ 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. So if you think you do lot of dry blending then purchase a dry grains container.
Bonus tip 1 : When you are using apples in your smoothies , try adding greens like spinach that will prevent your smoothie discoloring. Without greens , apple will discolor.
Bonus tip 2 : After using for couple of weeks/months vitamix will get cloudy if you air dry it. So after every use , use a dry cloth/towel to wipe it dry :) no more cloudy containers.
Bonus tip 3: Always use ice for smoothies ,WHY ? Vitamix is a high speed blender so it generates a lot of heat and this heat will destroy the antioxidants etc in the fruit. So to avoid heating the fruit always use ice .
There you go my experience, recipe and secret tips that no one will tell you. Hope you enjoy your vitamix like I do. Happy vitamixing :)
