Vitamix 5200 Standard Blender


“Wait a minute,” you might be saying. “That blender is hundreds of dollars! You’re crazy!” Yes. And I’ll just tell you over and over again that it’s worth every single penny. And you’ll agree with me.

And then you might say, “but I don’t even use a blender that much.” And I’d tell you over and over again that you should because it’s an amazing tool for blending up leafy greens and other fruits and vegetables which are absolutely wonderful for you and if you care about your health you’ll want to eat a lot of them. Phew, run-on sentences.

If you’re looking to save a few bucks, you can readily get a certified reconditioned standard model direct from Vitamix. I highly recommend the reconditioned models - I bought one myself and have used the thing 2-3 times a day for nearly six years.

There is one more blender I should probably mention because so many people love it, and it’s the Blendtec Total Blender. I really don’t know much about it because I’d rather just have a sweet motor without a bunch of buttons to do my blending. But it’s a worthy contender as well, so there ya go.
