Blender worth the Price?
Save money on Top Vitamix blenders without coupons
Update May 6, 2013 Our short Review: We have one and LOVE IT!
We think Vita-mix blenders are well worth the money, but look for ways to save. If you want to buy directly from Vitamix, then make sure you get a free std shipping code from a site like this. That code will save you $25.
The Vita-mix 5200 is the top rated blender based on points in the 2010 Consumer Reports rankings of blenders. We think they are well worth the money, but look for ways to save.
Today we got the June 2013 Issue of Consumer Reports and they list nice "standard" blenders with rankings from 70 to 91. Two blenders tied for the top score of 91. They gave no reason for ranking the Vitamix tied with the Ninja this year after ranking the Vitamix 5200 three points higher a year earlier. The only other change we noticed is they dropped the dash "-" in Vitamix for 2013 from "Vita-mix" in 2012
Oddly, the more expensive Vitamix blenders scored lower on their ratings. Here is a summary of the top five:
The September 2012 Consumer Reports (page 41) rates the VIta-mix 5200 with a top score of 76 and gives second place to the Ninja Master Prep QB1004 with a score of 73.
The Vita-mix 5200 was the top rated blender based on points in the 2010 Consumer Reports rankings of blenders. The Vitamix was also the most expensive blender on their list at $450. The new rankings appear to give bonus points for value.

From our 2011 Review: The Vita-mix 5200 is the top rated blender based on points in the 2010 Consumer Reports rankings of blenders. Next on their list is the Hamilton Beach Commercial Tempest HBH650 at about the same price.
Both are good blenders but we bought the Vita-mix 5200 blender some time ago and use it every day but we would buy the Vitamix CIA Professional Counter top Blender today if we were to do it again. Hopefully, Consumer Reports will review this blender in the future.
