Questions? Comments? Let’s talk about it here!
  1. Hi BD. Trying to decide between Blendtek. Total Bkender and Vitamix 5200

    I read that when there are blade or seal problems with the Blendtek the entire blender jar needs to be replaced. Is this the same with Vitamix or can the blade assembly alone be replaced? Trying to determine maintenance cost after the warranty expires.


    • Blenderdude

      Karen, yes, even though Blendtec is a great company and will definitely stand behind their containers in case of problems, there are still some known issues with gasket failures as you mentioned. If this were to occur Blendtec would replace the entire container, as its blade assembly is not removable. If a new blade assembly was ever required for a Vitamix container, these are replaceable. They are also sold separately and are readily available.

  2. I just ordered one from an online retailer. Should all marketing channels be cleared of the old blades that recalled on the next generation models? I hate to not be able to use mine when it arrives if old blades.

    • Blenderdude

      Roger, at this point I would imagine that all inventory consists of machines with the newer blades. To be certain, however, check the serial number etched on the top of the blade assembly when it arrives. The recalled blades are identified by serial number 103208A. If yours contains any other number, you are fine.

  3. You have the most helpful info I have seen for comparing the various Vitamix models. Does the 32 oz wet container come with a tamper or do you need to purchase it separately? Would it be the same size as the one included with the 7500 model and/or the Pro 300 model? Thanks.

    • Blenderdude

      Robyn, thanks for your nice words about the site. The only container sold separately that comes with a tamper is the 48-ounce. Vitamix makes a “Mini-tamper” for the 32-ounce containers, but it is sold separately. You definitely do not want to use the tamper that comes with the Next Generation models with the 32-ounce jars. It is a different tamper entirely.

  4. Hiya BD,

    do you know if the new style jar will work with the 5200 series of blenders?

    • Blenderdude

      Nathan, I assume you are referring to the short, wide 64-ounce containers that come with the Next Generation models. The short answer is yes, they will work. However, the drive shaft of the container and drive socket of the blade assembly do not align perfectly. I am reluctant to recommend doing this as a result. I have tried it a few times without incident, but cannot guarantee that this alignment issue will not be relevant. Also, for the record, Vitamix does not sell these containers separately from their intended models.

  5. Hi Bd, I’m deciding between the professional 300 and the 500. The 500 is slightly more it because of the preset functions? Also is there a huge difference with the recipe books? Do you prefer using the wider container or the one that comes with the 500? Thanks!

    • Blenderdude

      Sherri, yes, the pre-programmed settings, along with the brushed-stainless finish of the Pro Series 300, are large contributors to the price difference in these two Vitamix models. The recipe books are similar in content but come in different styles – 3-ring/easel-style with the Pro Series 500, and hardbound with the Pro Series 300. I rotate the use of my blenders frequently and can’t say that I have a container preference. Both do amazing jobs with whatever I throw at them. I find the shorter, wider container ever so slightly easier to work with/handle, but the difference is so negligible I hesitate to even mention it.

  6. Hi does your free shipping deal extend to australia for the professional series

    • Blenderdude

      Margaret, unfortunately, no. My affiliate agreement with Vitamix only permits shipping to North America.

  7. Fantastic info! Thank you. Can the Pro 300 handle cookies and cake batters well?

  8. What is your opinion on nut butter in these low/wide jars compared to the tall/skinny? Some say that the narrow jars allow the tamper to push all the nuts down while the wide jar misses some nuts

    • Blenderdude

      Ed, both jars do a great job on peanut butter. Where the more narrow container may have a very slight advantage is in making very small quantities – under a cup, for instance. The wider containers will make small recipes, too, but you may have to occasionally help it outby scraping the sides with a spatula after stopping the machine. Again, only on very small recipes.

  9. Dear BD, Thank you so much for all the information. I would like to buy the pro 300 , I read somewhere that people complained about the 64 oz jar having a wide pour, “when I make my smoothies very thick, the mixture tends to slide out in a wide fashion, sometime exceeding the width of the glass it is filling…Solution? pour mixture out into a wider container, and then transfer it into the glass. ” or “use a funnel” Is that a problem?

    • Blenderdude

      Mags, “problem” is a bit of an overstatement. Yes, this can be an issue, just as it can be with just about any blender container out there. I feel the spout of the Pro 300 container is well-designed, personally. If one isn’t too hasty in pouring from it, what you describe should rarely be an issue. I certainly wouldn’t let this potential problem discourage me from getting the model I really wanted.

      An almost fail-proof tip is to use a spatula to help guide your thick smoothies through the spout and into the glass. Since you’re probably going to be using one to get every last bit of what you’ve made out of the container, anyway, you won’t be having to use – and, hence, clean – it solely for this purpose.

      • Thank you. I might as well use finger to help guide the smoothies through the spout and lick my finger. 🙂

  10. I was looking at the newer 7500 or pro 300, as these would fit under my cabinets. My question is about the change to the shape and size of the container. Would this affect how the ingredients flow into the blades like the effect of the WildSide vs the FourSide? Have you tried the newer models?

    • Blenderdude

      Lee, yes, but, just as with the Blendtec containers, only minimally. The blade size in both containers is very close relative to the widths of the containers at their bottoms. The quantity of ingredients for a particular recipe and/or the blending duration may call for very slight modification depending upon which model you are using, but the mechanics of the blenders and the way they circulate ingredients is basically the same.

  11. BD, can you explain what the new 7500 model compares with? Does it have the quieter motor? I have given my older Vitamix to my daughter and would really like to have a replacement.

    • Blenderdude

      Mike, the 7500 is the exact same blender as the Pro Series 300 from Vitamix. They are identical in every way except for a minor difference in the recipe books. The Pro Series 300 book features restaurant-quality recipes from the country’s top chefs. The book that comes with the 7500 is tailored to the home user and features healthy, every-day recipes.

      The motor on the 7500 is slightly quieter than the older Vitamix models.

  12. Hi BD. I recently purchased a Creations GC but am now thinking of trading it for the Pro 300. Is the 48 oz creations jar compatible with the 300? In case I decide to keep both. I really like the 48 oz size. Also do you know when the low profile 64 oz jar will be for individual sale? Thanks again!


    • Blenderdude

      April, yes, the 48 oz. container that came with your blender will work with the Pro 300. Vitamix has not indicated to me if or when the 64 oz. container will be available for sale separately.
