    Hi Blender Dude,

    Do you have, and/or can you get the Vitamix Lid which is designed for use with the 64 oz. “Low Profile” Container? ….I notice there are several containers of this type available for sale online, and are not defective as those associated with the recall. However, it seems none of these containers have lids. As a matter I have purchased one, and I’m beginning to regret my purchase and wonder if there something going on with there lack of availability.

    Can you assist me or tell me how I can find a lid for a Vitamix 64 oz “Low Profile” Container? The product I own is the Professional 500 Series.

    Thank you kindly,

    Al

    Thanks,

    Al

      A., as of this moment Vitamix does not make these containers nor lids available for sale separately. Any low-profile 64-ounce container you find available online is being sold by a third party. I doubt it has anything to do with the recall last year, but this is clearly a marketing strategy Vitamix has chosen to implement for the time being.

      The only suggestion I can make is to call Vitamix and speak to a customer service representative. Explain that you have a container with a missing lid and see if he/she can be of any help. No guarantees, but, you never know…

    Hi Blender Dude!

    I appreciate your site a lot, and studied it before I bought my new Vitamix Pro 200 the other day…I ended up getting a great deal on it at Sur La Table, and was feeling sad about waiting for a reconditioned VM so went for it on the spot.

    My question is about the cookbooks :) I am hoping to make lots of simple soups and blended salads, and the Create cookbook that was included in my package has a raw section in the back with some good starter ideas…I wonder if the Live Fresh cookbook above might be a good supplement in that department? I know it’s not as good as buying the blender through your site, but at least I’d like to get the cookbook here!

    Also, are there any other cookbooks (non-Vitamix probably) that I should consider getting?

    I hope there isn’t a huge section somewhere else on your site that is all about this, that I have somehow missed. Thanks for your thoughts…

    • bd bd says:

      Shyama, congratulations! Many of the recipes in both books are identical, so you would want to take into consideration before making that investment.

      A suggestion I would make is to use Google as a reference. There are literally thousands of great blender recipes and several Vitamix communities online you can join for free if you do some searching. Also, Facebook is another good source. There are several groups for both Vitamix and green smoothies on it.

      As for recipe books, I am a big fan of anything by Victoria Boutenko. Hers are predominantly smoothie recipes.

  3. Dennis says:

    I love my vitamix but am having trouble with two things: 1) blending small amounts — for example a dressing that has less than a cup of liquid with a clove of garlic — the garlic won’t pulverize.
    2) when I make thicker stuff, it’s a pain scraping the sides and bottom — even with my vitamix spatula.

    Do you have any workarounds for these issues?

    • bd bd says:

      Dennis, there is no work around for getting thick recipes out of the bottom of any blender. A trick I like to implement, though, depending on the recipe, is to make a smoothie incorporating the ingredients that are left over in the container. For instance, if I made peanut butter, instead of trying to get every last bit out of the container, I will remove as much as I can without too much effort, then make a smoothie that uses peanut butter as one of the ingredients.

      Depending on your model and what it is you are making, small recipes can pose a challenge. If I were making a very small salad dressing with a clove of garlic, I would probably blend the garlic in about 10 to 12 ounces of water, drain the water, then add my oil and other ingredients. It is a bit tedious but can be done.

    We bought a Vitamix 5200S (not sure what this “S” stands for and can’t really relate to any of the models listed on your website) from Costco.
    My question is, do I need to buy the Vitamix 32 oz Container (Dry Grains) to make any spice powders or the 64OZ blender do the job. I would be using it daily for smoothies atleast 2-3 times. Does it do a good job or should I look for any other blender for the same purpose. Thank you!

    • bd bd says:

      PVD, the “S” on your model designates that it was purchased from Costco. It is the same blender as the 5200 in every way except for possibly the recipe book, depending on when you purchased it.

      If the spices you use to make your powders are relatively soft when whole, then the standard container will grind them adequately. If they are harder in consistency I would recommend the Dry Grains container, especially if you plan on grinding 2 to 3 times a day. Your Vitamix will be the only blender you need for your grinding and smoothies. The only question is whether or not you should invest in a separate container. Without knowing exactly which spices you are grinding, it sounds to me like you won’t.

      • pvd says:

        Hi BD,

        Thank you for your response. We returned the Vitamix 5200S and planning to buy the “Vitamix 5200 Super Package” model from Costco which has got the Dry blades blender too.
        The powders that I want to do are cinnamon, cloves..etc. like that.
        One quick question, can I use the 32OZ jar (dry blades one) to do the smoothies as it is in small size compared to the other one.

        Thanks in advance.

    Hi! I have been making my own almond flour from the pulp left when I make almond milk. When it dries though, it clumps together a bit, so I’m wanting something that can grind it. Would I need to buy the dry blade container as well as the actual vitamix, or would this reconditioned model do the job? Thanks!

    • bd bd says:

      Laura, this Vitamix model, like any of them, will easily further grind your dried almond milk residue. And, no, for this task you would not need to purchase the “dry” container. The standard container will be perfect for this kind of job.

  6. Anthony Pace says:

    How much would you charge for a 64 container with blade assembly fro a 5200?
    Thanks,

    • bd bd says:

      Anthony, I do not keep an inventory of containers or other accessories. The 64 oz. container listed at the top of this page sells for the same exact price on Vitamix.com, $149.00. The “Buy Now” button will direct you to the appropriate checkout page at Vitamix.com.
