There's a major Vitamix sale happening now, and that's one blender brand we love to see go on discount. With the ability to do so much -- and do it well -- a Vitamix machine remains one of the best investments to build up your kitchen arsenal, but it is an investment since the popular models start at $350 and go up from there. That's why we were awfully excited to see a few premium Vitamix models marked down as low as $300. The catch? Most of them are renewed, aka refurbished.
Should you buy a? If you want a true power blender but don't want to shell out $500, then it's worth considering. For peace of mind, Vitamix includes a free five-year warranty with these refurbs, which is more than most brands offer on a new model.
One of our favorite models for everyday use, the Vitamix Venturist gives you complete control over whatever is inside so you can fine-tune everything from smooth purees and sauces to chunky salsas and smoothies just as you like them. The 64-ounce container is plenty of room for most big jobs and recipes, but the machine also comes with a 20-ounce container for smaller tasks and single servings. A digital timer helps you not overblend.
This powerful model has a few smart features like touchscreen controls and built-in wireless connectivity with automatic programs for soups, smoothies, dips and desserts. It'll also detect the size container you've used and adjust the program accordingly. See? Smart. The refurb is down $150 from sticker price.
If you have a Vitamix, don't go buying an expensive food processor. You can transform the Vitamix into exactly that and it'll have all the oomph of your mighty blender. Right now the attachment is down $40 to $160. It's only compatible with the Ascent and Venturist series.
