  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't know what I was missing This is my 1st Vitamix blender and I am so pleased with it! It's definitely a luxury experience. I really love that you can use this model in a manual mode or use the computerized programs which leaves a lot of flexibility to be creative and make your own recipes or simply use pre-programmed settings. I didn't realize how cool the smart scale would be or how easy it is to follow the Vitamix recipes with the app. My only complaint is that the app does have some bugs and has crashed or frozen up on me a couple of times but hopefully they get the bugs worked out in updates. I love how you can add your own recipes to the app. I love the white blender has a larger area of white on the face plate and gray back-ground instead of black like the other colors have. You have to look closely at the photos to see the gray color and compare.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Know what you're getting! I was tempted into splurging on this when it went on sale, and except for the color, am generally happy with it. Lots of accessories. But buyer beware! It looks chrome in the picture (at least to me) but it is WHITE. Obviously my eyes aren't as good as they used to be. It does not state anywhere in the description what color it is. Looks horrible in my kitchen. Seems like a silly reason to knock off a star, even to me, but for the money they charge, you should at least get a color description and know what you're getting. Vitamix is still an excellent product and I have no complaints about its performance, so I won't return it (I doubt they'd take it anyway, since there's nothing mechanically wrong with it) but I'll probably see if I can paint it or something. If you don't want blinding arctic white, get the regular set where the color is described and you can get all the accessories separately. It may cost a little more all total, but you'll get what you thought you were getting.

    I'd also like to know if blender is white (appears in picture) or brushed stainless (description).

    What color is this blender, white or stainless? The picture looks white but the description states brushed stainless steel base.

    Asked by: lauriegdwck
    I’m more confused at this point. A few days ago I called WS toll free number and they said the real color was brushed stainless (picture was wrong). But haven’t placed the order yet, because it’s on back order and will start shipping again on 22 May.
