When it comes to holiday deals, don’t be fooled by doorbuster blender sales. That $10 machine seems too good to be true, and when you turn it on and watch the gears burn as it fights to puree strawberries, you’ll see that your instincts were right. If you enjoy homemade soups, smoothies, dips, dressings and the like, it’s time to invest in a machine that can really do it all. We’re talking about the Vitamix blender, and now’s the time to spring for one, thanks to Amazon's extended Cyber Monday 2021 sale.

Yes, these blenders are a splurge, but each one comes with a five- to ten-year warranty (which covers parts, performance and labor), depending on the model you buy. And, after developing recipes for cookbooks and websites over the years, I can attest that these machines can replace a slew of household gadgets, from coffee grinders to (dare I say it?) stand mixers. They’re that powerful.

Here are the top five to consider while they're on sale.

1. Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender

If you’re more of an occasional cook, the Vitamix E310 is a great place to start (especially since it’s currently $60 off). It doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles of the higher-end machines, but its ten-speed controls let you easily whip up a chunky pico de gallo or a velvety bisque, all with the press of a button. It has the aircraft-grade stainless-steel blades and 120-volt battery Vitamix is known for, though if you have a larger family, the 48-ounce cup may require you to blend in batches.

2. Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Smart Blender

At 27 percent off, the Ascent is a steal for techies everywhere. The motor base has self-detect technology, which automatically gauges the container size and adjusts blending times accordingly, so you get exactly the consistency you want without having to babysit the device. It also connects wirelessly and can pair with the Vitamix Perfect Blend app, which features 500+ recipes to help you get the most out of your investment.

3. Vitamix Professional-Grade 5200 Blender

You want the power of a Vitamix—without the bulky look that can ruin your kitchen’s aesthetic. Look no further than the 5200 model. It has a skinny, mod look (especially in white with black accents) that’ll make you want to leave it out, and it may even inspire you to actually commit to that morning green smoothie routine. The blades in this blender spin so quickly that they can create friction heat, so you can prepare a hot soup in six minutes flat without turning on the stovetop.

4. Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender

For more control over your meals, look to Vitamix’s pro series. At 36 percent off, it's Amazon's steepest discount of the lot. There are five pre-programmed settings for when you just want to flip on the machine and make a smoothie or puree, as well as ten variable speeds and a pulse feature, so you can chop things to the exact degree you want. It has all of the other models' features, as well as a low-profile blender cup designed to easily fit under cabinets.

5. Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Smart Blender and The Vitamix Cookbook Bundle

Hardcore cooks, this one’s for you: The A3500 has the wireless connectivity and self-detect tech that ensures you get a consistent blend every time (without having to keep an eye on things). Plus, it has the low-profile 64-ounce cup that the pro series 750 has, so you won’t be fighting to fit it under your cabinets. It also has a touchscreen with a built-in timer, five preprogrammed settings and a variable speed dial. Even better, it comes with a cookbook containing more than 200 simple, blender-ready recipes. It gives you total control over what you make, and at 25 percent off, if you’re thinking of going all out this year, now is the time to do it.
