    What's Your Favorite Blender?

    I've been getting in to making green smoothies lately to help me get the proper amount of vegetables each day, but my current blender is on its last leg. It can barely blend anymore and I end up basically chewing the kale or greens that are supposed to be blending into my smoothie.

    I'm getting a new blender and I want to do it right this time with a blender that will actually last me years into the future. And the easier it is for me to use and clean the more likely I'll keep making healthy smoothies. I'd also like the option to be able to make nut butters or nut milks with my blender so I've been mainly looking at Vitamix blenders. Does anyone here own a Vitamix and have feedback on how they like it etc.? It's a big purchase for me so I want to make sure I'm getting the right blender.

    After reading this page comparing the best vitamix blenders https://livingfreshdaily.com/best-vi...er-comparison/ i'm leaning towards a refurbished 5300. They're also on sale on amazon right now so it'd only be around $250 for a Vitamix which seems like a pretty great deal.

    Does anyone here own a Vitamix or have any other recommendations on a solid blender that can handle leafy greens, nut butters, and nut milks?

    Vitamix is definitely the best out there, especially given they have the accessory plunger thing that allows you to make smoothie bowls, etc, very thick.

    I've used my friends before and it was unrivaled in build quality... some of them last for like 10years +


    I personally don't own one because I don't blend thing regularly, so I bought a NutriBullet RX. It's quite powerful (the current model, not the old ones) and does everything I need, but of course the Vitamix is leagues beyond it.

    Yeah I really like the warranty. The refurbished one im looking at still comes with a 5 year warranty, I currently have a $100 ninja blender that I've only had for 2 years and only recently started using it and its already burning out

    If you have a poverty blender, or even a decent one a step down from the $600 variety you can make kale easier to work with. Cut out the stems from a bunch and steam it, put it It a Tupperware for use in soups, salads, or smoothies . Makes poverty kale smoothies about 11000 times more palatable.

    I love my ninja, at the end of the day. Just know that cheap blenders really suck.

    You won't be disappointed with a Vitamix but be prepared to pay. I like mine but hardly use it because drinking smoothies does nothing for my satiety.

    Stay away from the vitamix unless you like consuming plastic particles.

    It is easily the nicest one out there with one fatal flaw that puts it last.

    Many YT vids demonstrating this, look into it before you buy. Sold mine years back and still got a good buck. Have since been using a ninja.
