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 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!!

                  Comments about Vitamix Ruby Professional Series 300 Blender:

                  I bought a 5200 several years ago. One of my kids has a (many years old) 5100 and another kid has a 5200. We are all very happy, except I just gave my 5200 to my granddaughter so I have to buy another one (deciding on the model). I prefer the 48 oz container, and own all 3 sizes. A cloudy container can be due to milk proteins soaking into the plastic, which are next to impossible to remove.

                      I have the machine for two months now and live it although sometimes it let me down. I wanted to prepare a cake made of cottage cream and machine just overheated within second and struggled to mix the mixture at all. Tried another time half of mass and same happened although only a quarter of machine was loaded. I like it anyway and it's a shame that having 2.2 horses power didn't help.

                          This Vitamix model is 'slightly' quieter and features the lower profile jar. It blends to perfection. I have to be careful not to overblend actually. Cleaning is a breeze & I use it several times a day. Super customer service every time.

                              I've only had this for a little while, but have used it a lot already. I've wanted a Vitamix for a long time and finally was able to get it. I made almond butter (tastes amazingly fresh!), gazpacho (so much smoother than with a regular blender), and lots of smoothies. So many uses, and so quick and easy to clean. Love the large capacity container.

                              Delivery was right on time, and was packaged well.

                                      Having heard and seen the Vitamix I was keen for a while to jump on board and get my own. When I watched a few videos with Miranda Kerr the decision was made to get one. I have not looked back. Though if I could do it over, I would probably opt for a smaller sized model as the one I bought is quite big, which is fine. It is worth every penny. I am very happy.

                                          I bought the Vitamix to help me can my tomatoes when I discovered from a friend that the Vitamix would eliminate the need to remove tomato skins and separate out their seeds. I quartered or halved each tomato and put them into the Vitamix one bunch at a time. I then transferred the INSTANT tomato juice/sauce into crockpots and let the the sauce cook down to the consistency that I wanted for canning. After ladling the sauce into jars, I pressure canned everything. Thanks to the Vitamix, this became a SIMPLE 3-step process with noskinning or separating out seeds or skins. Wow!! I'm impressed!!!
