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!

I gave this machine to my husband for Christmas. Less than a month of usage, it is already broken. Now the hassle is to send the machine back for repairs instead a replacement considering the short usage

          Comments about Vitamix Ruby Professional Series 300 Blender:

          I am very happy with this blender. I've had it since the C series was introduced. I, too, have an issue with the cloudiness on the container. In my case, it is the 32 oz container, which I use all the time. Thanks for the tip in the answer to another reviewer. One thing I use it for is to blend ingredients for my dog's homemade dog food and it handles everything really well. The one issue I have is that there is not a personal sized container, as there is for the new Ascent series. I would love an adapter for my C series so that the ascent series smoothie cup or the personal series smoothies cup could be used.

          Comments about Vitamix Onyx Professional Series 300 Blender:

          I Wanted the best, I got the best! I have used this from smoothies to dressings, VERY HAPPY with the quality and performance! Space wise I am glad I picked the shorter unit, but keep in mind it will "spit" (with top open) food out where a taller container does not seem to. I have a shorter unit 300 series, my girl friend has a 6300 unit.

              As a coeliac sufferer I have to make a lot my own food and the vitamix does it all; soups, smoothies, nut butters, protein shakes, energy bars, soy / nut milk, non dairy ice cream and flours. So I needed the best machine for the work it was going to have to do. I originally baulked at the price but I could.not be happier with the product. I had a question pre sale and the advice was spot on with no hard sell, which is unheard of these days. In fact they advised me to go for the less expensive option to start with. I could not recommend this product or the company more highly. Get one you won't regret it.

                  I've wanted a vitamix for years. Treated myself as a housewarming present after buying my own flat. Use it everyday for smoothies, soups, mayonnaise, dips, nut butters. I absolutely love it.

                      Doesn't work as well as my old one

                      Comments about Vitamix Ruby Professional Series 300 Blender:

                      I bought the one that goes under the counter but I wish I hadn't. My old one worked so well. This one doesn't chop up things as well. I think it is the wider base. I wish I'd gotten the other taller one now like my old one.

                          I have used this every day since I bought it 2 months ago, I make breakfast smoothies to take with me to work, convenient and healthy. I've made soups, sauces and hummus. I worried about another kitchen gadget taking up room on my worktop, but as a premium product that I use everyday I'm happy to show it off!!

                              I have wanted a Vitamix for a couple of years now, but I kept delaying because of the high price tag. Having bitten the bullet I couldn't be happier. Performance is excellent.

                                  Had my Vitamix for a few weeks and over all happy with it. There is a slight glitch in that the dial to increase speed does not always work. If one pulses first, then it works. I suppose I could send it back, but unless it gets any worse, I can't face the packing up scenario yet again. Why can't new stuff just work!!
