Vitamix: Engineered to Last

So why is the Vitamix the only blender I will endorse?  It is the Vitamix engineering.  Vitamix has an extensive history and a warranty that backs their claims.  And why not?  This company has been going strong since 1921!  Mine has been running strong since 2011 and I use it daily.  There isn’t another appliance in my house that I can say that about.  It is an investment into the health of my family.

New Promotion!

There is no doubt that buying a Vitamix can save you lots of money in the long run.  That being said, I understand it can be hard to finance a brand new one.  Don’t give up on your dream of owning one yet.  Vitamix has a new promotion on their Vitamix Certified Reconditioned Standard Program Blenders.  Vitamix offers a verity of options for financing their blenders.  So now there really isn’t any reason for not owning one.  Order yours today!

The Vitamix Warranty

32oz container

Yesterday felt like Christmas here at the Barton home.  My new 32oz Vitamix container was delivered!  The story begins like this:  Last week my daughter was making almond milk in the Vitamix and she heard a high pitched sound we don’t usually here when running the machine.  She let me know and I check it out right away.  I heard what she heard so I switched containers to see if it happened again.  When the sound didn’t return I turn my attention to the blade assembly on the 32oz container.  Sure enough the blade was not turning as freely as it usually does.  So we switched to using the 64oz container and called the company to let them know what was going on.

When we purchased the Deluxe Complete Kitchen it came with a 7 year warranty .  We added an extra year because we have a large family.  That gives us coverage until 2019!  I have never had any company back their product like that!   I ended up speaking to a very nice customer service representative who not only placed the order for my replacement container but also gave me great tips on nut butters easier to blend and remove from the container.  It was like talking to an old friend rather than a rep just trying to get off the phone to get to the next call.  This family owned company really knows how to take care of their customers!

Vitamix Verses Jamba Juice

I was able to find this information on
Jamba Juice Smoothies Prices:
Item                                            Sixteen Original Power
Classic Smoothies                 $4.29     $4.99       $5.69
All Fruit Smoothies                $4.69     $5.39       $6.09
Fruit & Veggie Smoothies    $5.69     $5.39       $6.09

Fit ‘n Fruitful Smoothies      $4.99     $5.69       –
Creamy Treats                        $4.69     $5.39       –

Now let’s do a little math. Say “Average Joe Smoothie” was to buy his favorite classic smoothie 5 days a week. In the course of a week he would spend (drum roll please) an average of $27. Now let’s stretch that out to a month: $108. If “Joe Average Smoothie” were a diehard smoothie fan and he were to do that for 1 year it would be about $1,300! He could have bought the Vitamix 5200-Deluxe Complete Kitchen TWICE!  We bought that package because of all that it could do and it was less expensive than buying it a piece at a time.  Also the machine replaced my blender, mixer and food processor for most of my recipes.  Goodbye counter clutter!

To make a smoothie at home it would cost about $1 and that is not factoring in the gas to get to Jamba Juice. Since the Vitamix is so much more than a smoothie maker, you will really be saving a whole lot more. As for the nutritional differences…Well that’s another blog entry. I’ll be getting to that one soon.
