I was in the market for a VitaMix, but the price of this blender sold me on it. Lots of features and plenty of power. Hope that it lasts but my first impression is more than positive.

My fiance insists that I declutter our freezer so that our ice maker can do its job. But I haven't been able to do so. While looking at end of year best lists, a blog mentioned this small counter top ice maker with rave reviews from other sites. And it does exactly what it says, quick turn around on ice cubes within minutes (depending on the ambient temperature). The machine is about the size of a bread maker and though it would fit on the counter top, it is large and rather bulky. It is a really simple machine and thus easy to use. Plug in, fill with water, select ice cube size and push power button. In about 15 minutes, you'll have your first batch of ice. It makes an incredible amount of ice with just one water filled tank. The ice does come out kind of wet. However, if you place it into a bag and into the freezer for later use, it is perfect. There is really no "off" button, so I typically unplug it when I am not actively making ice. It does not refrigerate newly made ice but the insulation of the machine may keep it coolish over some time; however it will melt and the water will be recycled to make new ice. From that standpoint, it does not work like your fridge ice maker. Overall, this is a really good price for the product. The bright red reminds me of old fashioned Coca-Cola coolers without the insignia. The machine looks well made and after several uses, there have been no problems. Other reviewers suggested that the machine sit for two hours to let the refrigerant settle before making your first batch of ice. O.com packed it well and it was delivered in a timely manner. I'm excited about the party potential of this machine. And when there are no parties, my Vitamix will be happy to have more ice.

Refurbished 6 qt. Pro 600 in Liquid Graphite is gorgeous and works fantastic! Not sure what people are complaining about regarding noise - my KA tilt stand has half the power and makes less noise because it has less power., This is much less noisy than my VitaMix or Quisinart, contextually. Make sure the bowl is centered low to pop it in more easily. There was also no burning smell, nor were any particles in my cream cheese cookie dough. Icing worked better in tilt stand mixer (or just use a hand mixer) because smaller amount; bowl/beater setup for stand mixer best for larger batches. Very happy with this purchase. Get one for the bakers in your life - you will surely be rewarded with sweet treats for years to come!

I make a lot of raw food dishes and this food processor is one of my bestie's in the kitchen! I think i love my Vitamix more, but having both is definitely awesome!

We wanted the ability to make smoothies every day and initially were intrigued by the VitaMix... but, not by its price. So researched others online via different reviews from common/major sites that most folks would use. In the end, we decided on this one and have not been disappointed. The 'positive' reviews for it have been spot-on, especially those that called-out to pick this one over the other Ninja that does "not" have the Single Server Cups. We use these primarily and they are perfect for a quick smoothie/blended drink. In fact, we would like to get more of them but it seems that may be a challenge. It is definitely worth getting this model w/ the single serve cups. My parents have the Vita Mix and I've had smoothies before with it, but honestly, I don't see any major difference here. This does everything I want (and more, i.e. soups/other types of blending, etc) and it is very easy to use. Clean-up is super easy, especially w/ the single-serve cups. Wash the blender blade attachment and the cup - takes a minute to do. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a high-quality blender, especially if you want to make smoothies.

Would I recommend this to a friend? I already have! Seriously, as someone who went to culinary school and spends a lot of time in the kitchen, I love to cook and like high-end equipment but am very, very poor. Ha! So, with Vitamix firmly out of my reach until Bon Appetit comes calling, I did some research and found this little powerhouse. Hot soups? Check. Protein shakes? Check. Citrus dijon vinaigrette? Check. Green smoothies? Check. I just made my own sorbet by tossing in frozen mango, a frozen banana, a whole (peeled) orange, lime juice, and a little coconut water and BOOM - extreme deliciousness in my mouth. This stuff is so silky smooth I can't even believe it. The way the motor unit attaches to the top of the containers instead of the bottom means that when you're done blending/chopping/whatever, the blade (multi-tiered and amazeballs sharp!) lifts out, so you can scrape out every last bit of awesomeness and rinse out the pitcher with ease. I could not be more pleased. I'd write more, but I keep coming up with stuff to blend... and I'm not even hungry....

I purchased this too replace an older Kitchenaid blender, cheaper than buying a new container part. This works great for making smoothies and a fraction of the cost of Vitamix.

Works perfectly (as amazing and powerful as all the usual-suspect online reviews say it is) and much cheaper than buying this version new, or the latest version new. Making our morning green smoothies is a breeze versus our old blender. The consistency is excellent. Also have ground parmesan cheese and looking forwards to making soup in it. BUT anything you've heard about Blendtecs bouncing around versus Vitamixes (which don't) is true as well. The base bounces around--sometimes a bit roughly, when the machine changes speeds on an automatic setting. It's normal, but it's off-putting the first time you experience it.
