Comment:
Smoothies Blend so very well. Automatic set time controls. It is a very excellent product up to date. HOWEVER, Customer Service has miles to go to come up to par with other manufacturers. 1. Very long hold times. 2. I ordered my machine with a trade-up exchange March 24, 2015. Did not receive machine till four weeks later. Vita-mix customer service had multiple excuses and promises that proved non-credible. There emails are out of posture. VitaMix claims they are in midst of changing their ordering process. I can only conclude upper management is directing customer service personal to offer and respond in a deceitful manner as a dilatory tactic to cover upper managements failure to operate their company proper. If it was not for the trade-up offer of $100 bucks credit I would have cancelled order. They eventually sweetened the deal with a ten (10) year warranty

Comment:
I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the squat design of the pitcher is no good. I find I have to run the pre set cycles twice to get everything mixed, even with their tamping tool. Considering how much this cost, this is a BIG disappointment. Also, I don't know how anyone makes nut butters in this thing. Sure, you can grind everything up, but how do you get it out without a lot of work. Food processor works better in my opinion. As far as making soup, well that feature can also be a problem when you're trying to blend cold items. The longer you run it at high speeds, the more heat is produced.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
