I'm buying myself a Vitamix for xmas. I don't know much about them - watched a couple of videos online. I want it primarily for green smoothies. I think the one I want is the 5200, but I'm not sure...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

I have the 5200. I make green smoothies with it every day and it also makes hummus, guacamole, salsa, peanut butter, almond milk, turns frozen bananas into something very similar to ice cream and makes a mean margarita.

I watched a demo, where a guy compared this one to the 5200 and said that they were exactly the same, same model # and everything, but this one came with a vegan recipe book and a bag for making juice. Also, in a lot of the demos, I notice a lot of food left in the blender, like it's hard to scrape out. I don't have that problem with my food processor.

This is the only thing I don't like about my vitamix. I mainly use it for green smoothies because although it makes hummus that is much smoother than my food processor, it is hard to scrape out. They sell special spatulas, but I haven't purchased them. <a href="https://secure.vitamix.com/search.aspx?keyword=spatula" target="_blank">https://secure.vitamix.com/search.aspx?keyword=spatula</a>

I sooooo want a Vitamix. I either will ask my parents for one for my birthday and then never ask them for another thing ever again, or I'll just save up for one.

My husband bought me a vitamix for Christmas. I haven't even had a chance to watch the DVD yet! I have the Turboblend VS. I don't think I'll be making smoothies very often, but I like the whole concept of making sunup right in the blender.
