Decided to gift my 5200 to my daughter and purchased the new G-series 300. Have to admit, it did take a little getting used to as their is an on/off switch on the side of the base unit in addition to the start/stop switch on the front. My husband feels that the 300 doesn't pulverize frozen fruit as efficiently as the 5200 and because of the shortened container, it spits upward out of the container forcing you to stop the machine to add anything before continuing the blender. Guess he could use the opening in the top to add fruit, but the addition of "one at a time" doesn't seem to appeal to him. So, when using the Vitamin 300, you MUST have the top on the blender at all time. We are getting used to the changes and I do love the Vitamix product!

      Comments about Vitamix Professional Series 300 Onyx Black Blender:

      Bought this as a present to myself and the wife for Christmas after a couple of years of deliberating and it's been used at least once a day ever since. The wife has mainly used it for healthy smoothies of which I have sampled quite a few and they are all very smooth and delicious. I've only used it to make Oreo smoothies for the kids and I. Oh and the soups are great and extremely hot, I can heartily recommend the French onion soup that's in the book that comes with it. Plus cleaning is a doddle which suits me.

            I can see why this product has acquired such popularity and reputation. It's easy to use, has multiple functions, and crushes ice like no other. I just wish there was a mini version.

                I've been using this blender for about half a year. It's perfect for my needs. I used a cheaper blender before but it was three times as noisy and broke within two years. The Vitamix is extremely strong and quick and the noise level is tolerable. I use it almost daily to make green smoothies and veggie or fruit smoothies for myself, and yoghurt smoothies for my daughter. It's true using the Vitamix can vastly improve your family's diet and health. Highly recommended!
