The Vitamix 5200 is definitely an investment, but if you start making smoothies and soups at home instead of going out to lunch, it will start to pay for itself. Amazon Buy: Vitamix 5200 Blender.

My favorite, the Vitamix, is so powerful that you can throw your raw ingredients into it and blend for five or six minutes, and it generates enough heat to cook your food while it’s blending— leaving you with hot soup when you turn it off.

  • Certainly not an exhaustive list of the things we hear from Vitamix beginners, but definitely the most common. Also, our mother’s are both still afraid of their Vitamix’s

  • I recieved my vitamix pro 750. But doesn’t illumined the pressing buttons. You know if they removed the feature or i got a defect Blender..

  • I can’t wait to open her up!! I will stomp on the gas on my A3500! Bam! Can’t wait to grind my coffee beans, and throw away my crappy coffee been grinder which takes like 3 years to grind my coffee beans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I’ve had my Vitamix for a few months now and I’m glad I just stumbled upon this video. It was short and sweet, but the way you talk is extremely nice and reassuring. Love the video!

  • Suppose to get mine tomorrow. Got the A3500 in brushed stainless. I have wanted one for a long time. They went on sale and I got my stimulus check and decided to pull the trigger.

    Life is shortGo for it.

  • Just got a new Vitamix straight from Vitamix and it is so loud and it vibrates and shakes wildly if I don’t hold on tightly! The motor sounds like a bad motocross bike and it bogs down with JUST CHICKPEAS!! The blades actually grind and stop and bog on JUST CHICKPEAS. So don’t you think I received a defective one??

  • I already have a heavy duty Cuisinart food processor on the counter full time. My husband’s coffee maker tried to vie for that space but lost the battle as it migrates around the kitchen. I need more counter space!

  • The ninja sucks because of the extra set of blades in the middle. They prevent the blenders normal vortex action which is needed to properly blend. I bought one and used it once. Then it went straight in the trash.

  • This might be a silly question, but… If it is meant to be used on the highest speed, then what are the other speeds intended for?

    Thanks!

  • Fired up my first attempt at ice cream in the A3500 with a cup of strawberries and a cup of bananas(all frozen) I was so worried because the blender had this metallic smell in the air but I kept at it with the tamper and it pulled through. So far so good. I am guessing that almost burn like metallic smell in the air is that new blender smell?

  • They said that every Vitamix will make exactly the same recipes. The only real difference is the controls and the cosmetics. So you might as well buy the cheapest one available. The presets on some of the other models are not really necessary.

  • I just purchased a Vitamix and I’m trying to educate myself prior to using this.

    Wow! This video was super helpful. Thank you so much for posting this ��

  • I just used my VitaMix 5200 for the first time picked up for free off of My local Buy Nothing Group someone posted about the motor not always working:) the right ratio of ingredients it works like new

  • They were fun! Love short quick clips like this. Watching someone make a green juice that shows 19:00 of content is too much. Good work.

  • The new Explorian is gorgeous… I love the look… more like the Legacy Series blenders… I like the rugged, industrial look.

  • I bought new v1200 Vitamix I tried soup via connecting to app, selected soup option, but after 2 minute my power gone for my kitchen only… don’t understand what’s the issue with Vitamix using high speed

  • I have a Vitamix from the 80s. It’s all stainless steal. It’s y’all and slim. So you think it can do what the new ones do? The base is on my counter and I rarely ever use it. Stupid huh?

  • Hey you guys! When ordering a Vitamix blender thru Blending with Henry, please use only the links provided above in the Show More section. The promo code 06-008687 is no longer active. Thanks again as always for your loyalty and support! ����

  • I thought you were gonna make some stoner jokes but damn…. I’ll be damned! Great info that I can tell my wife! She was about to try and return it but then I told her to watch this video…. Presto! Load the liquids FIRST!!!!!!! Thanks dude. Awesome.

  • To be fair to the 3rd babe, the ninja can be a bit tricky to put on and take off. I know because I have one. In my opinion the middle one did the best job, the vitamix

  • Vitamix sucks! I had it for several years and it does a horrible job mixing frozen fruits and vegetables or making smoothie for one person. It only works if you add tons of liquid and smash the hell out of it with the idiotic tamper. For a machine this expensive, it’s a huge disappointment and I do not recommend it!

  • I just bought one of these so I appreciate these tips. BTW, also love your soft voice so refreshing after to listening to so many shouting sales persons!

  • I’m trying so hard to save up for one of these because my digestion has been so bad but oh lawd it’s so hard to save up on such low income for one of these I’m only trying to save for the explore e310 aswell

  • I broke my mom’s blender trying to make peanutbutter, and I had to buy another. I found this brand does them the better of all the others and got it. Just got it in on the day of writing this, and I made a simple smoothie first. Then went in for the peanut butter! It worked great! Don’t forget you want to clean after every use, not just rinsing, as that can leave some food particles. Do what it suggests and get warm water with a drop of soap in it. Then leave it to do its thing for a minute. Rinse out done!

  • I have the explorian and I am disappointed. My smoothies and margaritas come out like snow and the liquid does not blend equally, the ice melts quickly. Please help???

  • I’m a minimalist. Even my truck has roll up windows and I split wood by hand. Less to malfunction = more reliability/longevity. I don’t need a little LED and master switch for $200. What I do need, is Vitamix performance and $200 towards my plane ticket to Hawaii. This is the model I chose and I got both.

  • I’m thinking of buying one but afraid I will only use it a few times. Is it messy like the old juicers? Do you think the vitamix has improved your health?

  • I am so excited for my new Vitamix I got for Christmas! I already made two smoothie bowls and have been copying recipes from your blog. I admit it is intimidating. When I put it on the cleaning setting for the first time, I hid around the corner. Haha! Thanks for the reassurance. I can’t wait to make your queso dip ASAP!!

  • I made your green juice recipe and it was amazing. The first thing every new owner should do is read the guide that it comes with. I’ve had mine for almost two weeks and it’s my pride and joy. The other day I made a homemade Nutella, almost trashed the recipe but it came out pretty good.

  • Good message, I am a new owner and kind of scared to try and grind nuts. I tried once and seems like they were hung up in the blades so I stopped. I dont want to tear up my new machine. It was pecans that I was trying to grind, but I want to grind walnuts, brazil nuts and hazelnuts. I will look for some you tube videos to help.

  • Hello….I blend smoothies daily, but these days…every time a piece of ice ends up not blending……the rest of the smoothie is fine, but there is a chunk of ice left……no matter how high I turn the knob….if I blend until it is gone, the whole smoothie is a watery mess….please help…

  • Great video as always! I always display my vitamix’s with pride! I too was afraid of my machine in the beginning (and still am sometimes:)).

  • This is a great channel and resource. I bought an Explorian 310 this year and made my first blend/smothie. It was a disaster. Then I watched the Vitamix Training Series on this channel and learned my mistakes. I made the blend again (the correct way) and it was fantastic! Perfect consistency and delicious! Thank you so much Lenny and Shalva. I enjoy watching your videos and learn so much from you both. Great work! Thank you again! ��

  • The Blendtec looks more consistent while the Vitamix has two parts. You can see this at 4:21. So the Blendtec clearly wins this round.:)

  • Finally decided to buy a Vitamix just got here today and tried many of your recipes I’ve been watching for the past 2yrs ish. I bought a certified refurbished one for 350$ and the low profile 64oz container is a nightmare for small batches:(. Now I have to save up 150$ for either a tall container or a 48oz container so it can work with smaller amounts����‍♂️.

  • I totally touched the tamper to the blades the very first time I used it. I didn’t see I’d put the lid on wrong on one side. It takes talent to be me. ����‍♀️

  • Meh. I like thick smoothies. I have an expensive blender but on no matter what setting it comes out too juicy so I use my cheaper one lol

  • I just ordered my 7500 I’ve been waiting months for it and because there was an issue I got a free dry container!!!! I don’t even know what I’ll use the dry container for I’m not gluten free or anything.

  • would like to see the blending container used in the opening shots being used correctly to blend instead of changing to the large container.

  • “it’s really sweet from the lemon….A bit more on the smoothie side than the juice side… but definitely more of a juice than a smoothie”!!! HAHAHA This girl is FUCKING DUMB and illiterate! hahahahaha

  • It would be just right for someone who only needs the basics, and is looking for a Vitamix on a thrifty budget. Will it make soup like the higher-end models?

  • Vitamix is feeling generous! Check out the Certified Reconditioned Vitamix 780 for $399.95, (reg $519). Comes with tamper, recipe book, a 5 year warranty and fast free shipping thru Blending With Henry. Check it out! http://bit.ly/2sOPfUE

  • she is definite lying…Purchase Ninja…let me tell…ABsolutety phenomenal…my husband when back for another smoothie…This Brand is by far phenomenal…and I was shocked to know that some smoothie chain use this one also…I love it and my price on sale at Target for 69.99…72 inch…love it…..Amazing Brand

  • I’d like to see a blend off with those blenders blending or I should say juicing beets apples carrots. Oh throw some ginger in there too.

  • I like the “it doesn’t blend” blooper. Indeed, it won’t blend if the blade can’t reach the food, or if there’s not enough for it to move around (you and I both know that, of course). I am looking forward to seeing some videos where the automatic functions are used. Show us what this new toy can do!:D

  • Consumer reports gives ninja nj600 very, very good reviews, best bang for your buck. Girl needs to learn how to use ninja before she attempts to demo it! I found ninja brand new for $70.00 compared to $300+ my money’s on the ninja!! Not apples to Apple’s comparison, k’mon girls! People, trust consumer reports!!!

  • I own that Ninja model and it is not hard to manage as shown here. I bought it for the multiple blades and it is powerful; the smoothies are not as smooth as the Vitamix, which is why I’d like to save up for one; however, I am thankful I had an affordable choice when I started drinking smoothies more.

  • I’m actually thinking about getting a Vitamix. I use the Nutri Ninja IQ but it doesn’t break down kale and other green leafies very well. The Vitamix is really what I’m leaning towards. Question: how much water was used in this demo?

  • I have. A Ninja chopper to chop veg etc. I found it messy and you can’t get a much in because of the blades take up most of the room. So after many year and soon to move out I have brought a blended total blender for home made goodies and milkshakes. I love that we are going into autumn here in the uk and I can make home made soups and it heats it up for you.

  • well i find the ninja for the price has a much better value your comparing a 100 dollar blender to blenders that cost 3 times more for the difference in the smoothness just run the ninja 20 more seconds and you’ll have the same results for 1/3 the price lets be real not everyone has a money tree in their back yard

  • A lot more economical especially if you’re a fan of the ‘Smoothie as Salsa” then the Ninjas for you! Plenty of chunks to get your teeth into.

  • The Ninja is really a gimmick. Glad I got rid of it and got a Vitamix 5200. The Blendec seems like a great option, I just happen to prefer analogue controls to digital. You should test a top of the line Waring blender. I have a Waring bar blender that is pretty awesome, and definitely kicks the shit out of the Ninja which is a scam in my opinion.

  • my montel blender beats the vitamix blender it does so much better it would turn that fruit and veggies into water and so much thinner that what the vitamix blender. vitamix blender has been hyped to much. montel living well blender is the best. it will chop and turn anything into water. lol in my opinion.

  • Is it because of the wild side jar that makes it Blend better? I mean, if you had an old blendtec could you use a wild side jar to “upgrade” it?

  • I have just bought the exact ninja blender. This review almost made me decide not to buy it, but with how affordable it is, I bought it instead… It’s safe to say I love it! The lid isnt hard to take off at all and the jug isn’t even difficult to take off or put back on the base. I know the vitamix is what I want in the future, but I honestly dont think ninjablender isnt as bad as they show.

  • The vitamin blender is amazing! My parents bought it when I was in 4th grade and it’s still going strong. I am now 30 years old. I want this blender so bad.

  • You sure the engine over time can handle a instant turnover to max speed?

    I’d think a slowly and gradually turn over to max speed is better.

  • Sad, sad face. I really wanted the Ninja to be legit. I suffered through owning a Nutribullet and vowed: Never again! My next blender will make smooth smoothies. Do you think that the Ninja 1200 watt IQ base would do a better job (since it has a higher wattage)?

  • Glad you convinced me to purchase a NINJA, I am so happy with your endorsement of it! 5 Stars for being so full of smoothies!

  • Vitamix blendar will obviously b winner as far as smoothy becaz I also use it. Awesome functioning.
    Further comparison suggestion:-
    “ACTIFRYER”

  • Hey:) do you know if you can use 70% alcohol in vitamix ascent container (64) that comes with vitamix 2500. Will it melt the container or something else bad can happen???

  • There are many reviews on Amazon of the ninja blade whirling off and breaking the jar of the blender. It’s worth it to invest a little more imo

  • you should’ve sifted all of them and compare residu versus amount of liquid. The way you poured and the form of the can had way too much impact on the results now…

  • Well the Ninja turns slower almost 4,000 rpm slower, why not run the Ninja n additional 15 seconds to achieve the same total RPM”s as its competitors?

  • The ninja gets a lot of critisism for how it works… But put a bag of peanuts in there… It will make them liquid. It’s great for liquifiying solid stuff withouth adding any liquid.

  • Not really a fair “comparison” as far as price points are concerned. The Ninja produced a much coarser drink than either of its two more expensive competitors. Perhaps, given more blending time it might have produced a more consistent smoothie?

  • T…. Ned here in Dallas, just upgraded and got a Vitamix…..what do i make first…still working on the perfectly round banana gold coins…

    The Real JoeyB Dallas Fort Worth Texas USA utilizing the Traeger Timberline 1300

  • i posted video on the ninja and warning*** I got injured.. the packaging was dangerous… I think I will leave that one to the professionals……….I will be doing the vitamix next..

  • The 1000 Watt Ninja doesn’t stand a chance against the 1500 Watt Blendtec though the containers are similar.Ironically, the sharp Ninja blades look really cool but are not as effective as the Blendtecs dull and simple blade design. Power,component quality,cup design and blade design are what make a blender either first class or mediocre. Often reflected in the cost of the blender. If You pay less for a generic blender than what it costs to manufacture a good one chances are you compromise quality for price.

  • I appreciate the review that you did. Can you please tell me if the amount is in USD or Canadian dollars? Our Canadian Dollar is very poor vs. the USD currency!! Thanks once again! Susan

  • Thanks ladies it was a very intresting review to know how these blenders really work but to tell you the truth I will stay with my Magic bullet *❤ it’s always on top of my counter ready to go to do any job works fast & perfect every time.

  • I’m just getting started, and I’ve been making the mistake of not using the right ratio of liquid to solid. It gets super thick and the blade spins, but cuts nothing. I guess I need more liquid.

  • We have an old top motor drive Ninja (new $45) with the same tall blade. The best part about making frozen berry, banna, etc smoothies is that compared to using the old osterizer style blenders the cheap ninja will take ice and pulverize it to snow in moments and once you get the additional liquid set right the frozen fruit smoothies come out like sorbet. With juicing components it does come out a bit crunchy were very small pieces of almond or celery strings are noticeable but the Ninja has been a daily runner for years now and is very impressive in my experience. The morning coffee blasts has expanded and put hairline cracks in the plastic carraf that leak slighly when pouring, so high heat will be a problem FYI.
    Had a nutribullet and the Ninja is much better as a blender.

  • Have you guys tried the Kitchenaid Proline series? Do you have any opinions on that one. I know that is a new one. Can’t decide between the Kitchenaid with 3.5hp or the Vitamix 780.

    Thanks for any input.

  • Ninja is the best. If you kept them all in the same price point a comparablr $100 blender would lose to the ninja. Onnthe flip side if they had the ninja intellisense which cost around $250 it wouldve destroyed the competition. Im a ninja fan just sayin.

  • do you have any green smoothie recipe? i made one but it turned out a little gritty. maybe i need to add more fluid. i blended coconut water, celery, green apple, kale, spinach, cucumber, and small ginger. i used a vitamix e310.

  • I went onto ur link for ur website to check out ur juicers couldn’t find a link or a juicer anywhere just a an offer to do a juice 7 detox???

  • The blendtec looks like it gives you more of a smoothie vs the vitamix gave a juice consistency. After years of researching I went with the vitamix it’s loud but I love it. I prefer juice than a smoothie.

  • Thx for this. I did notice the Ninja was switched on after the others but turned off at the same time. Also, did the Ninja have a pour spout? I’m not going to watch again to confirm. ��

  • The ninja is reallly good. If use correctly. This ninja is an excellent chopping machine. Nit a smoothie machine. Stuff that is just hard to cut up by other machine th ninja does a phenomenal job of mincing them up. Then you transfer to one of those other machine to finish the job.

  • Ninja is overall best. Ninja has more attachments than the others. smoothie texture beats water texture as well. try making homemade pizza dough in Vitamix or the other.

  • I like the video, I don’t understand why I see many bad comments. Even though a liquid base was suppose to be added to all the smoothies. But it really shows the power of each blender, and anyway many regular consumers of these blender forget liquid base on the smoothies. Best of luck guys!

  • Hi Henry. Do you have a comparison of e 310 vs 320? If so I want to see it. I want to purchase soon. Single user but I want to see if its worth to pay more for the e 320 since the accessories will cost so much to buy a larger container later which I would use for occasional to rare party meal preps. Also I want to use to make my personal care products which can be in a smaller container. Also if I get a e310/5 yr warranty its 2 go vs the 2.2 of e320/7yr warranty which “work better” for the large container. I appreciate your advice. Is the extra $120 for the e 320 worth it?

  • Hi Henry. I would like to buy a vitamix through your link, but unsure of which to buy. This will be a birthday gift to myself. So a nice treat. I’m super excited! I’ve been saving up for years for one! So I’m looking for a good one.

    A little about me, so you get a better idea of my needs. It’s just me, so no big family. I plan to do a lot of cooking from scratch, so I expect to use the blender often. I know for sure I want to buy a dry container and the aer disc. I do like the switches as opposed to the digital but I open to digital. I want to stay up to date. Thoughts on digital vs switches? I want the self cleaning as well

  • I liked your review of the e310. I am considering buying the e320 from Costco. Would you recommend the e320 for a family of four with moderate use

  • I got mine today!!! The a 2500 BUT…. it didn’t make my almond butter my nuts were Roasted I put them I used the stick thing ( not the actual name of the tool) but nothing I got almond dust IT NEVER MADE BUTTER the only thing I found was maybe I didn’t add enough nuts I have the 62 Oz container I probably only put a cup of nuts in it but I read on a video that it has to be three or four cups or it will not make the butter are you familiar with this flaw I’m super super disappointed I just spent $500 and I didn’t even get nut butter super pissed please help if you can or anybody reading this thank you

  • Hi Henry, I just got my Explorian 310 Vitamix. I have troubles putting the lid on the container. Is there a trick? Thanks for the useful videos.

  • Just bought our first Vitamix since they are on sale right now…and your code made it an even better deal. We can’t wait to receive it and start using all your great guides. Thanks for what you guys create…keep up the good work!

  • Hey, Henry! I finally ordered my S50 personal blender thanks to videos and recepies! I’m always on the go to work so it’s perfect for all my fruit & veg drinks! This blender sounds like a great value and I like that it’s compatible with the 20oz to-go cups! Thanks again, Henry! I’m one of your fans!

  • I am very interested in purchasing the E310 Vitamix Blender. Would you know when there will be a good sale on them also with FREE shipping to Canada? The best price I have seen is $399.95… Is there ever a better deal on this mini Vitamix? I saw it in a local store, but it looked like a toy so tiny it is and cheaply made, but had not seen it in action. If the price can go a bit lower I would get it as my kitchenaid blender will not last too long anymore. Please let me know.

  • I know not all ninjas are the same. I have the ninja duo with auto-iq and love it! I use it several times a day for the last 4 years. I have excellent results with sauces, dressings, salsa and pico de gallo, soups, smoothies, and homemade hummus. The smaller blending cup does work better, smoother, then the large container.

  • This was actually really helpful. I used it to make nut butter and for a minute I freaked out that I broke it. So silly but this video was reassuring. Thanks!

  • The bottom of the container doesn’t fit tight on the base of the motor base right? Cuz mine doesn’t. I Just want to make sure that’s normal. It kinda moves a little loose side to side when I put the jar and base together.

  • Did it really how took 2 minutes to turn the peanuts into that butter?
    And that “make soup” feature, I never really understood it until last night, so the blades really heat up the mix? How many minutes for that and how hot will it get

  • I don’t like the center knob, too retro looking for me, reminds me of the 60’s (before my time). It should have a round center knob, not for looks, but for easier turning.

  • I have been missing out on a lot of great ideas. I just found you on here. Now I am an addict. Thank you so much for so many great ideas and yummy recipes. Now to go to the store for some smoothie items.

  • Hi Henry, just a helpful tip that I learned about drying the containers to prevent water spots. Instead of a microfiber towel which still leaves moisture, I use an old clean T-shirt. It works like a charm and dries them perfectly without much effort.

  • Oh my God you’re a godsend… Just subscribed light and hit the notification… I have had my vitamix for six years now and I have been terrified of it I am rubbish at using it I’m pretty sure I’ve busted the container so they kind enough to send me another one (container) this lockdown period has inspired me to really get to grips with it… I shall be watching a lot of your content going forward

  • This is so helpful. I just ordered my vitamix after putting it off for years. Im so excited for this! Also see as in the next 48 hrs I will finally have mine in hand can yall do a video on a must have shopping list to get the most out of the vitamix? I feel like when I go to the store I get a little over whelmed looking for what to get. There is just so much you can make with a vitamix!!!

  • The first few were kinda eh. but that last one where making the nutbutter then making a smoothie afterwards to clean it. I can not believe i didn’t think to do that.

  • These are great ideas, fortunately I already do most of these. These are useful tips to ANYONE with a Vitamix. The best tip for someone without a Vitamix would be to get one!!

  • @lifeisnoke when making nice cream, what if your tamper doesn’t reach the ingredients? Do you have to add enough frozen fruit so that it can reach the tamper? All the ingredients fly around when i use the frozen dessert setting.:/

  • Hi, just bought my first Vitamix. I am an early riser unlike the rest of the household. Any recommendations for minimising the noise so I don’t have to miss out on a pre gym smoothie.

  • Great hacks, I love my Vitamx but I’ve got a problem and I need your advice. Yesterday I blended frozen fruits and my Vitamix stopped work. On a screen is error E3 4.2 or E3 2.2 ( I switched it on few times to check it) after 24 hrs it’s still not working. I’m very sad because the blender is for our vegan family the most important feeding machine. I emailed the problem to Vitamix customer service but no answer. Please help:(

  • Well, it looks like the title graphic for Vitamix hack number two didn’t make the final cut. Can you guess what we called it? 0:22

  • I’m confused why you’re complaining about the thickness of a smoothly. You do realize you’re making smoothies and not juice, right?

  • How strong is the watermelon flavor in the mix? I’ve found that I end having to mask the watermelon with other flavors. In my opinion, too much watermelon can taste a little off.

  • On the Blendtecs you used two different jars, one wildside and one fourside… If you would have used the same jars than they would have been the same because the specs are the same.

  • Hi, thanks for the tips! I was looking for a video on bliss balls on your channel but can’t seem to find one? Is it because bliss balls aren’t so good in a vitamix? I made some and it seemed fine but then there was a burning plastic smell and it wouldn’t blend anymore! I thought the machine was broken but the next morning it turned back on. I’m scared to make more ��

  • Blend it at a high speed for long periods of time. You do know by doing that your oxidize the liquid which lowers the nutritional value. I didn’t think so. Yo don’t look to fucking bright.

  • Very nice comparison. Thanks! I would like to share two very important quotes with you that i try to share with as many people as i can. Jesus said “if you do not repent (turn away from sin: lying, stealing, getting drunk or high, pre-marital sex, adultery, hate, murder, suicide, witchcraft, homosexuality, using God’s name in vain, praying to statues/pictures/paintings or anyone else but God, etc) you will all likewise perish (eternal fire).”

    Jesus also said “no one comes to the Father except through me (no one else). If i steal a car once i will go to jail, likewise God warns that if we sin once we will go to the lake of fire, if we lie, steal, fornicate, commit adultery, get drunk or high, etc just once, but its not God’s will that we go to Hell.

    God became a human being in Jesus to take the blame for us, he died, went to Hell, then arose from the dead. We broke God’s law and Jesus paid our fine but God requires us to do two things besides just asking him to forgive us; #1 we must turn away from everything that is a sin (Jesus is not a license to keep on sinning) and #2 we must put out trust in Jesus, and then God will forgive us. He will dismiss our case and wash away all our sins as if we had never sinned.

    If you haven’t yet turned away from sin and put your trust in Jesus, please do it today, you may not have tomorrow. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I care about where you will spend eternity.

  • People say it’s good to leave the first comment, but after hitting ‘upload’, I’m usually all out of commentary. Enjoy these Vitamix hacks!:)

  • You can’t juice in the blender! It is not a juice it is smoothie that is huge difference between juice and smoothies and 2 different purposes of drinking it and different benifits.

  • You filled the Vitamix S series too full. The jar is smaller so when you pack it the way you did the stuff doesn’t have enough room to move around like it needs. I don’t have one personally but I have used one like it and as long as you don’t over load it, it’s a total champ.

  • Ninjas seriously suck. I will never live without a blendtech or vitamix again. By time you factor in warranty and how often you would have to buy a more ninja you may as well buy the more expensive product!! Worth it!

  • It drives me absolutely crazy when people that don’t know how the vitamix works… you didn’t even flip the switch to go to the top speed on the C-series. This isn’t a fair blend off if you’re not going to use the blenders as instructed to get optimum results.

  • The other blenders can blend to the same consistency, you’d just have to either blend for a few seconds longer OR add a little more water/liquid to the blend on the other models!..I really don’t think that anyone can go wrong with any of these model blenders when it comes to juicing! Good vid though!

  • blendtec 4 life, i agree blendtec makes the smoothis really smooth, if you’re gonna drink smoothies everyday its great to have that kevel of quality in the smoothies, i dont like the frothy creamy texture that cheaper blenders has, blendtec really liquifies it

  • Why would you blend for 90 seconds??? Nutrients are oxidizing By the second literally. You blend it for 10-15 seconds and you drink it lol.
    Greens are Highly oxidative

  • I’ve been trying to decide which blender to purchase and I’ve watched a couple of your videos. Now I feel more confused on which to buy because sometimes you say the C series tastes better and other times you say the Designer series tastes better. Which would your recommend for someone who is wanting to make green smoothies every day?

  • Great video thanks! I just purchased the E310 with the 48 oz container. I heard that making butters and milks can scratch the inside of the container. Is this true?

  • I don’t know. I have a simple nutribullet it works just fine. The only reason why I would buy another blender is for bigger portions. The texture is so smooth w my cheap nutri bullet.
    I make cashew cheesecake,
    Green smoothies, cream of spinach or cauliflower soup, cilantro avocado sauce, fruit popsicles, almond milk which I get super fine almond flour!! Etcetera, etcetera!
    Before that I had the magic bullet which worked fine too.

  • I love my Ninja & it does some things that the Vitamix cannot do. Obviously the Vitamix is a slightly better machine, but the Ninja is a terrific machine.

  • It must be cold with those sleeveless shirts! Glad the one person was wearing a wool hat while blending inside so she can surviving those extreme September temperatures. Stay strong and warm in those crazy winter temps. I am donating 30 dollars to Doctor Oz and asking him to buy you either a 3 quart jar for you guys or a coat. Don’t want you to have to deal with thick juice or cold September weather where you guys are. Stay strong and warm! Liquefy Designer Series Style!

  • another bullshit video…you fail to add water at the start to any….if you want to see how you blend you should visit blending with Henry he is all over YouTube…please make better video’s instead of this stage act…or get tips from Henry..
