Five years ago, I made the big decision to buy a Vitamix.
Even after a sale, it ended up costing $595. Yes, I spent that much money on a blender. Is that insane? Maybe.
Why I decided to get a bougie blender
My family used to purchase cheap blenders that cost around $50 and they would always break within a year, it was so frustrating. We even tried getting “nicer” blenders which didn’t work out well, either. I decided enough was enough and I was happy to invest in a top of the line blender.
Basically, I wanted a blender that wouldn’t fall apart within 12 months…
I had heard great things about the Vitamix brand and decided to give it a shot. The model I wanted was $800+ but the white colour was on sale which is how I got a discount. It came with the machine, a blending jug, tamper, two extra blending cups and a really nice cook book.
Wow, did the Vitamix deliver! I have abused this poor thing the last five years and it has not acted up even once. I use it for a range of things such as making smoothies, cocktails, batters, sauces and soups. When I run out of breadcrumbs, I’ll throw in a slice of bread in the blender to make a fresh batch. I don’t think I’ve ever bought a smoothie out since my purchase, knowing I can make an awesome one at home.
Was it worth it?
Yes! I use it multiple times a week and it has helped tremendously with cooking and making drinks.
Even after five years, it is still running very well and I’ve heard that they can last for up to thirty years! That sounds a little crazy, but I’ll keep you updated on how mine goes, I would love for it to last as long as possible.
