This model comparison video tests the performance differences in two popular Vitamix models. Featured are the Vitamix Professional Series 750 and the Vitamix 5200. The Pro 750 is representative of all of the Vitamix “Next Generation” models, and the 5200 is comparable to all “traditional” models in the Vitamix home line of high-performance blenders.
A test is run using identical ingredients in each blender. Common household ingredients were selected to included a variety of hard, frozen, fibrous, and small-seeded contents for the test. Ingredients were blended for 30 second durations in each model, then again for an additional minute. A visual comparison is made from samples taken from each blend, and the temperature of the results from each is taken after the last.

Visually the results from each blender appear to be virtually indistinguishable after both the 30 second and 90 second blending durations. As well, a temperature reading on the results after 90 seconds of blending shows almost no difference between the models, with the temperature reading of the ingredients blended in the Pro Series 750 registering just .2 degrees higher than those in the 5200. Neither blender had difficulty blending any of the ingredients used. Both did what should be considered a superb job against normally difficult-to-blend ingredients.
