Purchased 9 years ago after owning a Blendtec for a short time. The Vitamix is a solid machine. Never had any issues. Have 3 different jars but prefer the 64oz for the best blend. It was well worth the investment.
While on a Caribbean vacation years ago I watched the bartender’s use their Vitamix machines at the pool bar, they ran them constantly 12 hours a day, told me the machines never stop and never a problem. I was convinced right there. Well after 9 years they were right .
Definitely recommend, especially with all of the new features and accessories.
