What customers say about "Key Specs"
Vitamix 5300 Blender, Black
  • This machine is very simple to operate; the only variable available is the speed. I load up the jar, insert the tamper, start on lowest speed and when the big chunks are pulverized I increase the speed and let it blend at high for 20-30 seconds.
  • Frozen berries are quickly done and at the high speed, seeds and steel cut oats turn particulate.
  • The blade speed and power are just incredible. Vegetable and fruit peels and seeds are no match. You chuck it in there and turn it to 10 (vitamix should make it go to 11). Buy this immediately!
  • This blender is a big, hungry beast! There is nothing it can't take down (within reason, of course)! One of the strongest motors we've ever seen, and turns out a very SMOOTH product! Very large capacity!
  • Low-profile 64 ounce container that comes with it is unusable for 1-2 servings. Our reconditioned unit broke after 3 uses.
Vitamix 750 Professional Series, Candy Apple Red Finish
  • Smoothie blending is perfect consistency. Blending sorbets and smoothies is very quick, like two minutes.
  • This new one is much quieter and with the combination of the full range variable speed along with pre-programmed settings, it's a fantastic machine.
  • This thing is amazing.. You really don't realize the difference until you use a blender with this kind of power and speed. I'm starting to make a lot of things in it now.. I makes wonderful soups, sauces, etc...
  • This is a very powerful machine. It can operate in some pre-programmed modes as well as in variable speed mode.
  • Soups do not get "piping hot." Even though there is steam coming from the container, the contents are warm at best.
  • Turns everything to mulch-looking stuff, even on slowest setting pulsed. Chunks are random shapes. Must still chop by hand when appearance matters. But this is true of any blender/food processor I guess.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Vitamix 5300 Blender, Black
  • Seems like an extremely durable piece of equipment. Great for daily use.
  • The shorter container fits under my upper cabinets, so it doesn't take up any more space than the replaced blender occupied.
  • The blender itself is very heavy duty. The container is relatively wide and short, which makes it easy to use, clean and store.
  • It is pretty heavy so smaller folks may have some trouble.
Vitamix 750 Professional Series, Candy Apple Red Finish
  • As far as storage and cleaning goes, the wider shorter jar is your best bet. It's easier to clean, is better suited for smaller families and takes up less space on your kitchen counters.
  • The base is heavy, so you can walk away without worrying about the unit tipping or shaking if the contents of the container are off balance.
  • The Vitamix is heavy and very well made, compared with the Ninja.
  • I love the size/shape of the pitcher, it fits right under my cabinets and is very easy to clean out.
  • This machine will power through anything you throw at it. And, the recipe book is great as well.

What customers say about "Features"
Vitamix 5300 Blender, Black
  • CRUSHES ice. This was my biggest complaint for my previous blender. Makes perfect smoothies, margaritas, etc.
  • The 3 controls is a significant improvement over the 8 speed-selecting buttons on the front that were hard to keep clean.
  • The pulse feature on the blender is great! I've made pesto, salsa and other things with this feature!
  • The wide container is my favorite feature because it makes cleanup a breeze. My smoothie game has been raised to a 10. It also comes with a great recipe book for non-smoothie uses.
Vitamix 750 Professional Series, Candy Apple Red Finish
  • This is a very powerful machine. It can operate in some pre-programmed modes as well as in variable speed mode.
  • The various programs (smoothie, soup, etc) aren't just a gimmick - they actually work and make a difference in the finished product.
  • It comes with a recipe book that has really good recipes with specific instructions including the ORDER of adding ingredients which makes a difference also.
  • The container doesn't lock into place on the motor, so you have to hold it in place when doing heavy duty blending using the temper. Even with soups I'd be weary of not holding it, just in case.
  • Juicing is NOT smooth. I tried to make carrot juice by blending carrots on the soup setting and even longer on the custom settings, but there was still a lot of roughage.

What customers say about "Power"
Vitamix 5300 Blender, Black
  • Very powerful (when using large quantities). Great value. Looks great on counter.
  • I'm very pleased with my blender selection. It is a very powerful machine; It is significantly better than the old-fashioned blender that I had.
  • Quieter , more powerful , lower and wider canister profile , bigger wider blades , and the added pulse option are all very welcome upgrades .
  • Love the blending power! Handles kale smoothies like a dream!
  • The motor is so powerful the food will actually start to heat up after too long as a result of the friction caused by the blades.
Vitamix 750 Professional Series, Candy Apple Red Finish
  • It's powerful and has the smoothest sorbet blend I've ever seen, only a few tiny specs at the perfect sorbet consistency. If you blend until all specs are gone it turns into a smoothie consistency.
  • Super powerful, great for making veggie/protein blends (no smoothies here, borderline diabetes means no juicing/blending fruits), batters, breads, soups, mayonaise (omg, once you will taste you will never buy from store again).
  • It's a powerful machine and gets the blending job done... It's just what I wanted.
  • Best feature - Powerful motor, this translate to very smooth in anything you blend.
  • Noise (painful) on certain programmed settings.
