The most versatile blender I've ever owned!

By 

from Davie, FL

Comments about Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 Variable-Speed Blender:

The blender is absolutely perfect. When I first bought it and took a look at the recipe book that came along with it, I was shocked at how many different types of foods I could prepare with this machine. I am blown away with how amazing this blender is.

Blending Power
This machine is extremely powerful. It chops through ice without a problem.

Versatility
Between soups, dips, smoothies, and even ice cream, the recipe book that came along with the Vitamix had so much variety.

Ease of Cleaning
Make sure you follow the instructions that the pamphlet provides. If you do, the cleaning process will be a breeze.

Ease of Use
This machine does take a little getting used to, but after some practice, it is very simple to use. I suggest trying out some of the recipes in the recipe book to get used to using this.

Design
I love its design. I have owned a ton of blenders, but this one is by far my favorite.

Durability
I have had this blender for well over a year now, and I have had no problems with it at all. It's very durable, and I expect it to last for quite a long time.

Vitamix- variable speed

By 

from Alpine, UT

Comments about Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 Variable-Speed Blender:

This is a great machine. We use it for smoothies a lot, and to chop up veggies, and cheese. You can make all kinds of soups, dips, and other things with recipes from the book, or make up your own. The recipe book has many ideas to choose from. The soups are delicious and nutritious. You can find recipes for breads, ice cream, and other wonderful goodies. I cannot emphasize how important it is to follow the directions, though.

Blending Power
Nothing better! It has a lot of power. Nothing will stop this motor. It chugs through ice cubes, cheese, grinds meats for spreads, makes hot soup. Seriously, it does it all.

Versatility
Many, many recipes to make in this from ice cream to soup. It cuts through things as hard as ice, and as tough as steak, yet it will also chop up veggies, and breaks up hard cheeses.

Ease of Cleaning
Follow the instructions for cleaning. You will get it done much faster if you do. Put in water and a drop of dish soap, whip it through, and it is clean. Very easy, and very fast.

Ease of Use
It takes a little practice on some things, but very easy to use if you follow the instructions. I would suggest trying some of the recipes first, with the different techniques of chopping, blending, whipping, etc. and then venture out on your own to make new recipes, and adapt favorite recipes of your own.

Design
Great design. I have tried many different blenders, and this is the best we have found.

Durability
We had one model for 20 years and never had to have a repair or anything done to it.

Amazing Precision

By 

from USA

Comments about Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 Variable-Speed Blender:

I can't believe that this blender's precision is accurate and quick! The blender is never challenged by tough foods or solid ice. It can easily do what other blenders cannot even reach. I never knew that this blender would be a great product because I use the main brands in the market and not something like this.The power and versatility is top notch, everything was precise and even. When I made smoothies or cocktails they were so well done, I gained many compliments from people at parties I hosted for people or for myself. I'll say this again, truly amazing product! If anyone wants anything done, they should really use this blender, it is truly something to use for anything at your home or public/private events. Simply 9 out of 10!

Blending Power
Power was top notch and never had issues when I changed settings, very durable.

Ease of Cleaning
Very easy to clean, sometimes there are some issues but it is never a problem.

Awesome product

By 

from USA

Comments about Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 Variable-Speed Blender:

I wouldn't trade this for anything! I love using this blender all the time. I have owned it for only a few months, but already I can't imagine living without it. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I received it as a gift a few months ago and at first, I didn't think it would be valuable to me. I'm not very good with change, and I didn't think that I would have the time to use it. I'm always on the go, so I need something that will work quickly and without hassle.

But I also want to eat healthy and get in shape! I know that I don't really have the time to make fresh food all the time, so it's nice to have this as a healthy option for me. It's really great to be able to have a healthy choice that's simple and inexpensive!

The price for this product was reasonable, and I really think that it was well worth the cost. My entire family uses it and enjoys it, and it is a really smart investment for those looking for healthy food options.

Love my long-lasting vitamix

By 

from Kailua, HI

Comments about Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 Variable-Speed Blender:

I've owned my Vitamix for more than 10 years, and use it often to make shakes, soups and cut up vegetables and nuts.  I love it and it has not given me any problems.  I can grind up seeds and fruit skins that usually get thrown away, so I get better nutrition adn more fiber.  Love it.

You need this mixer for your overall health...

By 

from Medinah, IL

Comments about Vitamix Vita-Prep 3 Variable-Speed Blender:

I have had my VITA MIXER for years..and it has lasted....Used it to make different things at different times..You get to use the entire Veggie/Fruit...which are all heathy for you...

Now I am using it for a breakfast drink..although it is more like a meal..I add fruit..yogurts...vitamins..instant oatmeal..and whatever else you like...mix it and drink it..I would never eat all the fruit I use..so drinking it is the best for me..

Buy fresh fruit on sale..freeze in packs..and add a different one each day...mix them up..use them all...whatever...

You also can add any veggies you like mix it slightly..and add boiling hot water..and instant soup..healthy and good tasting..

You also can make any kind of dough..The power it has is awesome...

Give it a try...I like my Vita Mixer..although Montel Williams has a similar mixer for less money...I use mine every day...
