Let's face it: we're living in a very sophisticated countertop appliance world. A lot of kitchen gadgets can pull off a mind-blowing amount of jobs with ease. And that's exactly what makes this Vitamix blender so exceptional. It has one job-to mix and blend flawlessly and with precision-and it does its job masterfully.

Want a creamy smoothie every morning? Want to make big batches of pureed soup for the winter? Trying your hand at homemade baby food or DIY ice cream? Using a Vitamix means you don't even have to think about the quality of your results. Just toss in all your ingredients, and this kitchen icon delivers with no fuss and very little mess.

I mean, the machine even cleans itself in 30 to 60 seconds with a drop of dish soap, some warm water, and the flick of a switch. Shoppers who've made the switch to Vitamix say there's no way they'll ever go back to other brands.

"The Vitamix beats out the Blendtec when it comes to making juices and very fine smoothies and soups," admitted one fan. "The Vitamix is also better at chopping thanks to the sharper blades. The blunt blades of the Blendtec don't chop as well."

"It's a Vitamix....enough said. Right?," one Vitamix convert added. "I really was one of those skeptics. A blender is a blender, right? Boy was I ever so wrong. THIS is worth the investment. I've made plant-based dressings and sauces, whole food smoothies and life has never looked so good or been so easy."

Worried about not buying brand new? Don't be. Amazon takes its refurbishing very seriously, promising that the Vitamix will work like new otherwise you'll get your money back thanks to its 90-Day Amazon Renewed Guarantee. Each pre-owned blender is painstakingly inspected and tested, Amazon assures customers.

"I normally do not [buy] refurbished anything, but I figured with the return policy it was worth a chance," said one shopper. "Wow, it looks brand new. No marks, scratches, or anything visibly wrong with it. It blends smoothies better than the Ninja and it's quieter too!...Plus, it's easy to clean. Water, a little soap, crank it up and it's clean."

Not a smoothie lover? You'll still fall head over heels for this gadget. Fans have gushed about making dips, spreads, pancake batter, sauces, and even things that seem impossible to blend like "fist size chunks of ice, frozen fruits (also fist sized) and stubborn veggies, like carrots and cauliflower, broccoli and fresh spinach, thick hemp tofu," according to one tough customer, "and the end result is perfect every time."

When you're not using the "smoothie-store quality" device, it fits neatly inside your cabinet waiting for its next blending challenge. The 64-ounce container is BPA-free and it-along with the lid-are dishwasher safe. Simply put, the Vitamix Explorian Blender Professional-Grade 64-ounce blender is a low-maintenance, high-performance appliance that lives up to its legendary name and will quickly become the most trusted, reliable character in your kitchen.
