Our review of the similar 5300 model proved that the Vitamix is worth the splurge. With its wide-blade radius, this blender can pulverize just about anything your can throw at it. In addition to cold beverages and juices, this model can also tackle hot soup, homemade ice cream and—wait for it—pizza dough. With ten easily adjustable speeds, you can achieve the optimal texture for any recipe. The 64-ounce container is just right for big-batch cocktails and smoothies, while the stainless-steel blades are tough enough to blitz ice in seconds. As for washing the blender, it’s as easy as adding dish soap and water to the pitcher and letting it clean itself in 30 seconds flat.
If you’re in the market for a smaller blender, the Vitamix E310 Explorian (was $350, now $290) may be a better fit. Its pitcher can hold 48 ounces, so you can still mix multiple drinks in one batch. It boasts the same sharp, durable blades as the larger model and ten speeds. The bonus pulse feature is perfect for making chunky salsas and thick soups. We also love the radial cooling fan and thermal protection system that keeps your blender from overheating as it works.
If you're in need of a food processor as well, the SmartPrep Kitchen System is the way to go. It combines a blender and processor into one appliance via a food processor attachment that can be used for everything from chopping veggies to making homemade nut butter. The blades can be changed for thin and thick slicing alike, and the variable speed control and pulse feature give you maximum control. It's great for batch prepping, so you can cut back on time at the cutting board.
