Finding A Discounted Or Refurbished Vitamix For Raw Food Recipes


Marisa's Question: I am a very, very poor law student, but my regular blender just isn't keeping up with my recipe ideas anymore!

Do you have any suggestions for refurbished Vitamixes? I don't want a smaller blender, I'm looking for the real deal!

Thanks Andrew!

Andrew's Answer:

Hi Marisa.

I've written before about how great Vitamix blenders are, and so I can understand your frustration with the small, cheap blenders that get jammed up when you try to make anything ambitious.

Although you can follow a healthy raw food diet with nothing more than some basic cutlery and bowls, one of the few fancier kitchen items I consider worth the money is a good blender which can handle interesting recipes like healthy raw dressing and soups.

The $30 blenders I used for years always got jammed up, they broke frequently, and the containers weren't big enough for the large smoothies I like to make.


When I finally broke down and got a Vitamix it became the only appliance in my apartment's kitchen (except for the decommissioned stove and microwave).

However, the downside of all that power and longevity (mine is still going five years after I got it, despite taking quite a beating) is that it costs more than a regular blender.

Luckily, you can get your hands on a cheaper refurbished model, which you can't really tell apart from the new ones.

The refurbished ones save you about $120 compared to buying new.

The nice thing about them is that the warranty still lasts seven years, and you can return them anytime in the first 30 days if yours doesn't impress you.

You can buy a refurbished Vitamix Blender here.
