At this point in blender history I think it’s safe to write that Vitamix blenders are the best. Consumers and professionals have consistently rated Vitamix as the best blender and I have to agree. I use mine nearly every day. I use it predominantly for making protein shakes but occasionally I use it for other culinary tasks.
Not only do I love it but it’s very kid friendly. My kids and their friends regularly make fruit smoothies with our Vitamix 5200.
