Vitamix 5200 Blender Data and Review

With a seven year warranty, a powerful design, and the quality of the Vitamix brand, the Vitamix 5200 blender is perfect for healthy eating. It's versatile enough to replace your regular blender, plus it can make great smoothies, soups, ice creams, and more. This top of the line device can make the smoothest purees.

If you're in the market for a great blender to fit in your home and transform your lifestyle, the Vitamix 5200 is for you.

If you buy a bundle, it comes with a 32- or 64-ounce container, a top, and a tamper. That's all the moving parts you need to deal with—no removable blade, no washers or gaskets. What could be easier? Many bundles include a great cookbook with delicious Vitamix recipes for things like nut butters, spreads, smoothies, baked goods, and more.

Almost everything we said about the Vitamix Professional 750 applies here. The 5200 lacks the automatic settings for cleaning, smoothies, soups, and desserts, but that's a minor enhancement to a fine product.

Vitamix 5300

In 2015, Vitamix released a 5300 model. Per all reports, it's a hybrid of the 5200 and the 7500 technologies. The 5300 has the same classic motor as the 5200 but it has the compact, low-profile 64-ounce container.

Costco has begun selling the Vitamix 5300 blender bundle. It's a good system. You will notice some drawbacks versus the 7500 series, however: the 5200 is a little noisier (the 7500 G-series has a quieter, next-generation motor) and slightly fewer features (the 7500/750 series has some preset blender settings for smoothies, soups, and frozen foods).
