Hello! I am looking to get a Vitamix blender but there are so many to chose from. What should I know about them before making this relatively expensive purchase. Thanks!

You should know that, unless you have something very specific in mind for your Vitamix, the Ninja is just as effective for a fraction of the cost.

I love my ninja too I got this one
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ninja-me...mBZGgJ22fD_BwE
and used my 20% coupon

Is it bad that I use the dough mixer as much as the juice blender?

Question.....do you need to peel and core fruits/veggies with the Ninja? I know with Vitamix you don't.

Get a certified refurbished one! You will save some $$ and they are just like new. I have the 6300 and it is awesome.

I agree with going with a refurbished one to save money. I don't recall the various models, but ours has served us well.

Type in refurbished vitamix. They sell them on the company website and other places like Amazon.
