The most common Vitamix shopper’s question is some variant of, “I want a Vitamix to make smoothies, soups, and frozen desserts. Which model would be best for me?” The answer is that all Vitamix machines work great for those purposes; which one is best for you depends on if you want to pay for extra features.
If you’re overwhelmed by the choices and just want to know my preference, I’ve used all of the different types of Vitamix blenders, and the one I use on a daily basis is the 7500, with an extra 32-oz container for blending smaller amounts. (For the best deal, check out certified reconditioned.) All of the models are excellent, and I don’t think there is a wrong choice. (Plus, if you change your mind in the first 30 days, you can get a full refund, including covered shipping both ways.)
