Comment:
I agree with Consumer Reports' lower rating of the 750 model versus the 5200... because we have both of them - one at home and one at our cottage. While we can all agree that Vitamix makes a heavy-duty and long-lasting product, I've found that the 750's wider, squatter pitcher is simply not as good at quickly crushing ice. Going from one machine to the other, as I do frequently, I have to run the 750 at least twice as long (i.e., 60 seconds, instead of 30) as I do on the 5200 to reduce the ice to smoothie consistency. After staring at the physics of the thing, it seems to me that the shape of the pitcher just isn't as good at shepherding the ice toward the blade because the pitcher is too wide. On the 5200, the ice is forced, via the narrower bottom of the pitcher, into the blades. <br /><br />Ironically, the reason we went with the 750 for our second Vitamix is because of that very thing: the shorter pitcher! The 5200 didn't fit under our cabinets, while this one does. If I had to do it over, I'd buy the 5200 again, even though it's a pretty tall thing. And I notice CR forces me to answer the question of whether I'd recommend this to a friend. The only reason I say no is because I think the 5200 is a better choice - not because I think this one is a bad product.<br /><br />Again, the differences are a question of degree - both are good machines - but I was spoiled by the 5200.

Comment:
Quality:<br />This is the best full sized blender you can buy. While a cheaper blender may give good results, they won't be better than this blender in any other regard. There is nothing this blender can't do and do it well.<br /><br />Pros:<br />The cookbook that comes with the blender is actually really cool. I am no cookbook collector but it is worth keeping, that is a surprise.<br />The blender has lots of different functions. The computer can sense rotational speeds and adjust the speed during pre-programmed settings. There is a learning curve, as is true with all fancy gadgets, which results in amazing performance.<br /><br />Cons:<br />Cost, ok. This does cost a lot. It can make a huge difference in your quality of food you eat. Because you can make things (see recipes below), it can also cheapen your food bill. This blender costs a lot of money. It will be a life changing choice to purchase it. There are cheaper models. The 300 is the same blender but without presets. The 5000 series can include a dry blade/container too. Remember it has a 5-7 year warranty with very high re-sell value. I bought a remanufactured one from the website, free shipping.<br />Loudness, no. It can get extremely loud if you operate it on the highest settings. Other blenders may be quieter but that is the result of them being weaker. You don't need to operate this thing at full blast. And all operations only take 30-120 seconds, usually 45.<br />Size, no. I was a little disappointed that the blender didn't fit under my cabinet. Then I realized I don't want it on top. I put a small drying mat underneath the cabinet with the blender in front. After use I give it a quick rinse and then set the parts on the mat to dry. Maybe it would look nicer to dry out the components after each use and then put it all back together, but that would be completely unpractical.<br /><br />Surprise recipes: Soy milk, almond milk, etc. Powdered sugar (with wet blade), various flours (with dry blade/containter which will cost another $150), nut butters, soups, salsas. Anything that you want blended can be done.

Comment:
I used Vitamix for a month and tried Ninja mega kitchen system. Ninja is pathetic when it comes to smoothies. There were chunks left whereas Vitamix never left anything. Handling the Ninja requires tedious cleaning (although you can toss it in the dishwasher) still its no match for self-clean mechanism of Vitamix (self clean is a bit of a misnomer, as what it actually means is that you put the water and soap in the vitamix jar and blend it on the preset cycle and then rinse it). <br />Plus the tristan polymer jars don't leech toxins in the food whereas other kind of plastics do. The quality of blending is completely different as well and the blades aren't sharp like in a ninja. If you are on a budget then Ninja is the best option, else go for this guy. Checkout the re-conditioned program on Vitamix website as well, that's where i got mine for much better price (you do need to wait longer there though).<br /><br />Lastly based on my own use i don't believe the CR rating of Ninja > Vitamix pro 750 is correct. CR unfortunately you got this one wrong. Oh I forgot to mention that Ninja was already sort of coming apart with a month's use. <br /><br />Vitamix is definitely a long term investment so dont worry it'll eventually pay for itself. The way I looked at it was, it was a much better use of $500+ than spending it on some jazzy new unlocked smartphone with some out of this world features (only to be outdone by another brand/model in next 5-6 months). Change of perspective def helps :D
