  1. Hey there,
    I’ve been looking into homemade smoothies for awhile. The last blender I bought broke so quickly and was bulky. I just go more frustrated by it then helped by it.
    I appreciate the detailed review. Can you tell me how hard it is to clean?
    Thank you so much again for the review. I am going to be adding this to my wish list

      Hi Jennifer. I’m really sorry that your last blender don’t last long. It’s the thing with cheap blenders, you just not as durable as the other big brands e.g Vitamix, Blendtec, Breville, etc.

      The cleaning is very simple. You just need to add some warm water and a few drops of soap detergent into the blender and use the self-cleaning cycle. It will blend the soap water for about 30 sec or so cleaning the whole blender. Just remember, the longer you take to wash your blender after using, the harder the stain will come off as it has harden to the pitcher wall.

      Thanks for reading. Do contact me for more questions. I’ll be glad to help. Cheers!

  2. Hi,

    Thanks for providing this Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender Review. It looks as though you can do some quite complex “dishes” and that it’s a very flexible tool.

    As a general rule I’m looking at a blender for smoothies and soup making. Any ideas how long it typically takes to make both?

      Hi Nate! Yes the Vitamix Professional Series 750 is a very convenient tool. You can do a LOT with it.

      Basically for smoothies, the automatic setting “Smoothie” will run the blender for about 1 minute. That is basically the time required for most blenders to really pulverize the ingredients and creating silky smoothies.

      For soups, we have to run the blender for a longer time i.e 5-6 minutes. The blender needs that long time to create heat from the friction of the blades.

      The good thing with this blender is you have the automatic setting that will do it for you. Just put the ingredients, use the setting and walk away. No need to supervise anything at all.

      Cheers!

  3. I am interested in getting a blender and this one certainly looks like it’s one that I could use. One thing that I first look at is the warranty and this one offering 7 years then it must be good. Also that the brand has been going since 1921, it must be doing something right.

    With the DVD that is included do you get recipes as well. I would like to get some so I can make something really nice with it.

      Hi Owain. You wouldn’t go wrong with this Vitamix =). 7 years warranty really gives you a peace of mind for your purchase. And yes you are right about Vitamix’s long time legacy. It’s been much longer than most blender manufacturers out there and for sure they have learned and improved over the course of 8 decades.

      Do not worry, there is a cookbook included with the purchase Owain. You can also go to Vitamix’s website to look at their recipes if you prefer using a smartphone of your ipads. It is quite easy to navigate through the site finding the recipe you like since they have segregated recipes based on product series, recipe types, difficulty level and many more. There are over 500+ recipes for you to choose from. You can click this link here to go to Vitamix’s recipe page.

  4. Hello there,
    I am searching for a really good mixer that will last for a while, even if it costs more. I came across this mixer and I am just wondering how hard is it to clean? I presume those blades can be taken off?
    Also, is the 7-year warranty meant for all the parts of the blender? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blender that offers a warranty this long.
    Do you have any suggestions regarding the recipes? Something with fruit would be nice.

      Hi Dejan. For a good lasting mixer or blender, then you’ve come to the right place. Vitamix has been a staple name for good quality blenders for decades. Their 7-years warranty is good for all parts of the blender and just shows how they take pride in their machine’s quality.

      And cleaning it is a breeze – just put some warm water inside the jar (you can also put some detergent in it) and use the self-cleaning cycle. The blender will mix the water and take all the leftovers out. Simply rinse it and it’s good to go.

      Dejan, you can always check out my smoothie recipe section for some examples. Here is one about banana that’s very delicious for those starting out with smoothies.

      Cheers!
