  • It's not a blender - it's a Vita-Mix. The Vita-Mix TurboBlend 4500 is designed to render the full bioavailability of whole foods such as apples, strawberries, greens and more. This includes the leaves, peel, stem - where you find all the valuable fiber. The TurboBlend 4500 breaks down whole foods, releasing phytonutrients that help build the immune system, fight disease and improve overall health. The super-efficient 2-peak horsepower motor runs substantially cooler when mixing thicker ingredients like nut butters and frozen treats. It also processes fresh, whole foods in seconds to deliver superior taste and texture. The container is oversized, 64-ounce capacity made from Eastman Triton copolyester material that is virtually unbreakable, more chemical resistant and contains no BPA. Unit features a locking lid design for easy removal. A Healthy Lifestyle recipe book containing over 150 step-by-step recipes in full color in included. Vita-Mix 4500 is covered by a full 5-year warranty from the most trusted brand in high performance blending equipment.

    "Vitamix is the best ... hands down"
    5/5,
    Pros - Powerful, Made in the USA, Best results
    Cons - Most expensive (but least costly) blending machine available.
    This particular model wouldn't be my choice ... I prefer the 5200 model ... but any Vitamix you get is a giant step up from any other blending machine.

    Pros - Large volume, powerful, makes great purees and related preparation
    Cons - Not good for very small volumes. Not ideal as a juicer
    This blender is a fabulous machine.  I makes the best smoothies, purees of all kinds, milkshakes, and smooth soups.  It is powerful.  Not as versatile as a food processor but for pureeing it beats my two cuisinarts hands down.  As a juicer, for pulpy items such as carrots, one has to strain the puree through a juice bag, which is a bit of a pain, compared to a dedicated juicer, but it can work for that. For thick purees it can be a bit difficult to get every last bit of food out from under the blades and it works best for volumes of at least 1 cup (but up to about 2 quarts).  The instruction book says to clean it by adding warm water and a few drops of liquid detergent and then run it for a few seconds.  Then rinse. That works quite well. I'd highly recommend this for someone who want a machine dedicated to purees, smoothies, smooth soups.

    Pros - They last forever.
    Cons - n/a
    I bought mine in 1983 from a friend who never used it.  I've loved it and used it ever since.  Just thought I'd let you know they do go on and on forever.  Price is a lot higher now, but for over 20 years service, just grin and bear it!

    You forgot the best part... it makes GREAT frozen Margaritas. Not to mention frozen diaquries.

    I like the 7 year guarantee and the customer service--is awsome. They helped me over the phone fix something--I was amazed!
