Vitamix - Worth it or Impulse Buy??

Good morning and happy Hump Day!  I hope you are all doing well this week so far.  It's been hard for me to get back into my normal routine after being on vacation for 9 straight days, so I'm still pretty pooped to say the least.  Over the weekend my husband purchased me a Vitamix 6300 in RED and it looks like this:

I was SO excited as I had been wanting a Vitamix for the past 2 years, but couldn't fathom spending that kind of money on a blender.  It has a 7 year warranty, which is a great thing, but now, I'm just not sure if it's really going to be worth the $$$.  Does anyone out there have a Vitamix?  If so, do you actually use it, or does it sit in the cabinet or on a shelf somewhere?  I have wanted it for my juicing, but I'm not able to get the same consistency as the sales rep did at Costco where we got it last weekend.  My juice is either full of pulp and I have to strain it, or it doesn't come out right at all.  I don't want to waste even more money on fruits and veggies by experimenting just to get the right consistency of my juice.  

Help and input would be greatly appreciated.  I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on this subject if you have one.  Again.... worth it... or impulse buy??

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Lots of love and hugs,


  1. I have been drooling over these for a year or so and i just could not fork over that kind of money for a blender. My husband got me the Ninja Ultima for Christmas and I'm pleased with it. I mainly just wanted it for smoothies, though. But that's not what you were asking, ha! My neighbor swears by her Blendtec. Her parents have the Vitamix and she much prefers the Blendtec. I think it's a bit cheaper and also has the 7 yr warranty. I'm not sure what the differences between the two…do share if you have an good green smoothie recipes:)

    1. i guess i should also say hello!! i've been reading your blog for awhile, just never commented:)
