What Do You Do With Yours?

In 2016, I was hoping Santa would bring me a Vitamix.

He didn’t, so I patiently waited. And endlessly jibber-jabbered about how I would make ALL THE SMOOTHIES.

I decided to stop waiting on Santa and take the plunge.


I’m part of that club: Vitamixers.

When I come across a club member, I ask,” What do you do with yours?”

NOTE: My SIL has had a refurbished Vitamix for a couple of years with no complaints. These powerhouse blenders can be pricey new, so…CHOICES!

A bargain blender’s not a bargain if it doesn’t last.

We know purchasing a Vitamix blender is an investment.

But, Vitamix blenders are built to last, helping you buy dependable, not disposable.

Easy to Clean:

Just blend warm water and a drop of dish soap at your machine’s highest speed, and watch it self-clean in 60 seconds or less – no disassembly required.

The Difference Is in the Blend:

Since the number-one reason people purchase a blender is to make smoothies, it’s important to get them right.

Whether you prefer an icy blend or a perfectly smooth purée, nutrition-packed with veggies or a light, fruity treat, Vitamix smoothies give you a delicious, even blend in every sip.


We don’t aim to have the highest horsepower.

You don’t need more horses; you need trained ones.

Silky smooth purées (and apple butter and hummus)

Vitamix machines have the power to pulverize even the toughest ingredients, so you can make silky smoothies and sauces, blend after blend, year after year.

Easy to clean

With a drop of dish soap and warm water, your Vitamix machine can clean itself in 30 to 60 seconds.

There hasn’t been one day that I’ve regretted the decision to buy a Vitamix.

We make daily smoothies and it makes easy blending of apple butter and hummus (so creamy smooth).

I haven’t made soup yet (Texas heat!), but when I do, you’ll read about it.

Do you have one? If so…
