Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabes

VITAMIX S30 REVIEW

Vitamix is largely considered “The Best Smoothie Blender”, which is just one reason why countless smoothie shops and an ever increasing number of restaurants use this cutting-edge brand exclusively. With the Vitamix S30, you too can easily blend an incredible array of healthy recipes in a matter of minutes. It’s an excellent tool for a variety of food preparations and grinding needs – but without the commitment of a lot of space in your kitchen or your suitcase.

Vitamix S30 – YOUR PERSONAL BLENDER’S COST

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThe S30 was Vitamix’s first PERSONAL BLENDER in their NEW S-SERIES MODELS (the S50 and S55 are the same but also come with pre-programmed settings). Taking the whole “personal blending” experience to an entirely new level, its shape and size are designed to fit the needs of one or two people (at most!), as this small blender is much in their entire line.

Like all other Vitamix blenders the Vitamix S30 works primarily as a Whole Food Juicer and Smoothie Maker, blending up even the toughest of ingredients in a matter of moments; however it can also perform most of the same tasks as it’s larger big brothers.

The Vitamix S30 was designed specifically for single serving preparations for people who are constantly on-the-go and want to eat healthy. Its smaller size definitely makes it travel friendly, and though the S30 is yet another of Vitamixes dependable products, its $379 price tag is too much for the vast majority of people…

Vitamix released the reconditioned Vitamix S30 to their offering of certified refurbished Vitamix blenders, for a much more reasonable price of $259! (Which was the price we thought it should sell for! YAY!) If you want the Best In Class for On the Go blenders, look no further than the refurbished Vitamix S30)

Vitamix S30 – DESIGN

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesPower: One peak horsepower motor, drawing seven amps/790 watts – which although quieter than larger Vitamix models, it is LESS POWERFUL. That said, it’s MORE POWERFUL than other mix and go blenders such as the Magic Bullet and Nutribullet.

free superfood smoothie challenge

Speed Capacity: 10 Variable High-Powered Speeds with an RPM range of 500 to 37,000.

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesSize: With its 20-ounce Container the S30 stands 14.55 inches tall; while hitting 15.6 inches with its 40-ounce Container. It’s a little over eight inches deep, just under six inches wide, weighs 12 pounds six ounces and has a four-foot power cord—making it a small blender that will easily fit under most kitchen counters.

Controls & User-Friendliness: High-Powered 10-Variable Speed Dial Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabeswith a Pulse Feature for increased blending control (which works by turning the Speed Dial to the left and quickly releasing).

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabes

The Vitamix S30 also features an Interlocking Safety System—if jostled the machine automatically shuts off during the blend; the Speed Dial must be reset to Stop (O) in order for it to restart. This is a great feature that protects both the motor and YOU, or your loved ones.

Vitamix S30 – BLENDING CONTAINERS/JARS

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesComprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesContainers: The S30 features two BPA-Free Containers. Its 40-ounce Container has a Spill-Proof Vented Gripper Lid and accompanying Tamper, making it ideal for preparing small family meals and single smoothie and sauce servings.

The 20-ounce Double-Walled Travel Container keeps cold smoothies Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabescolder longer, with its double walls providing insulation while preventing condensation (which also keeps warmer blends from burning your hands). And it fits in most standard car cup holders, making it perfect for people constantly on-the-go. This mix and go 20-ounce container does NOT have a tamper, meaning thicker nut butter and ice cream blends must be made in the 40-ounce Container.

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesCapacity/ Volume: With the lid offering a little extra room at the top, it can be filled to capacity. For the 20-ounce container you want to leave a little bit of room from the top before screwing on the blade, turning it upside down and blending to allow a little more room to flow (remember there’s no tamper).

Blade: The S30’s three-inch laser-cut stainless-steel Hammermill Blade Assembly is high quality like other Vitamix machines. The S-Series blade base can be used interchangeably between the 40- and 20-ounce containers, Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabeswhich is designed to be unscrewed and is constructed with leak-proof rubber seals. The seal is not only safer, it’s easier to take off and put back on the blade assembly for cleaning that other mix and go small blenders, since it’s on the outside and your fingers aren’t going near the blade.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Vitamix replaces blades for FREE under it’s 5 year warranty if they become dull from regular use. (Other Mix and Go blenders aren’t going to do that – and will wear and break within a year or two.)

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThe Lid: The 40-ounce Container features a Soft-Grip, Ergonomically-Designed Spill-Proof Vented Gripper Lid that holds firmly in place and a removable chute so ingredients can be added while blending. It also comes equipped with a patented tamper (with a preventative collar that keeps it from touching the blades) so you can assist with tougher blends like rich thick batters, hearty nut butters and delicious frozen dessert recipes while blending.

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabes

The 20 Oz Container doubles as a High-Quality Smoothie Cup that you can drink right out of—simply remove the Blade Assembly Base and secure the Flip-Top Lid on once the blend is completed. This handy healthy travel accessory is virtually SPILL PROOF (you’d seriously have to want to make a mess to spill anything out of its secure sturdy design) and can even be attached to any backpack, satchel or briefcase like a keychain.

Vitamix S30 – PERFORMANCE

SMOOTHIE MAKING

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesVitamixes are renowned for their ability to create any type of smoothie you can imagine. No matter how delicate, exotic or tough the ingredients are to blend, they get the job done. And though the S30 doesn’t possess the total power of larger models, it handles virtually any recipe as long as you follow the operating procedures listed in Vitamix’s Quickstart Guide.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Cutting up ingredients into one-inch pieces helps them flow freely through the S30’s blades, ensuring a perfect blend every time. We have tested this! Although several times we did NOT prep ingredients into 1 Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesinch pieces (as the Vitamix manual tells you to!) and it worked perfectly fine, one time we didn’t during testing and a large apple piece blocked the blade. A quick pick up of the jar, shake/dislodge, and then everything worked fine. Vitamix is providing the S30 best practice guideline for consumers, but not to worry – your Vitamix S30 can absolutely handle tough jobs MUCH better than other Blend and Go types of blenders.

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabes40 Oz Container – All liquids must be placed at the bottom, followed by dry goods, then leafy greens, fruits and veggies, and lastly ice and any frozen ingredients. This “layering” allows the blades to grab hold of the softest ingredients on lower settings, then work their way into tougher ingredients with escalating ease as blending speed increases.

20 Oz Container – Due to the travel container’s standing upside down when opened (until of course it’s actually on top of the blender base ๐Ÿ˜‰ the opposite ingredient layering effect must be employed prior to securing the blade assembly.

JUICING

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesVitamix is a WHOLE FOOD JUICER. Though not a traditional “juice extractor”, the S30 blends ALL the LIFE-ENHANCING PULPY JUICINESS from ALL the NUTRIENTSespecially the fiber. It’s strong enough to break apart the cell walls of any fruit or vegetable, transforming whole fibers; liquefying them into fibrous juice that’s easy to drink and even easier to digest.

Known as the premiere “Whole Food Blender,” Vitamix ensures you get the benefit of every last nutritional molecule you paid for, providing whole food nutrition at significantly lower costs than standard blenders—all of which waste incredible amounts of produce!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Certain illnesses and digestive diseases require that if you are suffering from such ailment(s), you should only drink highly-concentrated, vitamin- and mineral-rich juice WITHOUT the fiber or anything else your body may have trouble digesting.

SOUP

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThough Vitamixes are widely known for their ability to make hot soups, the S30 doesn’t have a strong enough motor to get ingredients near the requisite 180 degrees Fahrenheit to do so on its own; however, it can reach about 140 degrees Fahrenheit…

So if you want to create hotter soups than that, the S30 should only be used to BLEND INGREDIENTS, which would then have to be heated up in a saucepan prior to serving. Plus there are many great chilled soup recipes like Vitamix’s own Blueberry Grape Chilled Summer Soup or their Carrot Ginger Tofu Soup, both of which are delicious, health-conscious recipes that can be made in minutes!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Soup can only be made in the 40-ounce container; the 20-ounce travel container lacks the ventilation system to handle the pressure build-up from higher temperatures.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: It’s way healthier to prepare fresh soup at home rather than buying the canned variety. Due to their high sodium and toxic preservative content, commercially processed soups usually have three-year shelf lives. Blender Babes features a delicious array of healthy soup recipes, our most popular of which is our hearty CHUNKY TORTILLA SOUP!

WET & DRY CHOPPING

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThe S30’s low Variable Speed Control allows for clean, precise dry chopping. Perfect for preparing meals for smaller families, couples or just for one, its innovative blades are sharp enough to prepare recipes like skinny guacamole, chunky toppings for delicious soups, and even chopping bell peppers.

To dry chop remove the lid’s chute, add ingredients like carrots, nuts and even cheese, then set the Speed Dial to (1) and use short quick abrupt Pulses (increasing to Speed (2); for a total of 10 seconds of processing time)—resulting in vibrant, perfectly cut up tasty toppings for any healthy meal in no time at all and with virtually no preparation!

Wet chopping produces a more consistent chop and is recommended for raw fruits and vegetables. Using water to better circulate the ingredients through the blades, wet chopping also requires you to use short quick abrupt Pulses while blending at high speeds.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Vitamixes aren’t designed to chop large amounts of food. Though they definitely possess the ability to chop smaller quantities, and do so perfectly, they have trouble with larger quantities where they fail to process evenly. Using a food processor will be your best bet if you need to prepare large amounts of food; however, Blender Babes doesn’t recommend buying a separate food processor—unless of course you have specific food production needs that would make such a purchase absolutely necessary.

GRINDING

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThe Vitamix S30 makes flour, nut butters, flax meal, powdered sugar and can even grind your morning coffee; however, all grains must be blended in the S30’s 40-ounce container. We’ve tested flours, nut butters and flax meal. So far the S30 was able to grind as well as any Standard Model using the dry jar. However note that the Dry Grains Container is NOT COMPATIBLE with the Vitamix S30. 

Vitamix recommends S30 owners who prefer to grind their own coffee beans, or those planning on consistently grinding harder grains, purchase a separate 40-ounce Container, and use one specifically for grinding – because it will eventually develop a “fogged” appearance, having become pitted from use as well as will stain. As you see from our video, head Vitamix chef Brian uses his 20 ounce container to blend spices on occasion, which can especially stain the jar – it might be better (and less expensive) than purchasing a second 40 ounce container for this job if you don’t plan to grind too much.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Many Blender Babes members say they use their Wet Jar to blend dry goods. And though the Wet Jar can indeed grind grains (we’ve of course tested this countless times ๐Ÿ˜‰ such continual use can also wear the blades out, eventually leading to compromised wet blending performance, so again if you plan to grind a lot, get an additional jar when you can.

BOTTOM LINE: If you occasionally want to grind flax seeds or wheat berries, the S30’s 40-ounce Wet Jar will suffice— however continual use can also wear the blades out. If you plan to grind A LOT, get an additional jar OR go for the bigger Vitamix models with additional dry jar.

If you want to use your blender as a mixer, have celiac disease or lead a gluten-free lifestyle and plan on doing a lot of grinding and/or make your own flours on a regular basis, buying a Standard Model Vitamix or better with a Dry Grains Container is recommended!

MIXING

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThe S30 can be used as a mixer to whip up batters such as pancakes & quick breads like banana or cornbread (however unlike it’s sister blenders with larger/wider jars, it’s NOT meant to knead yeast breads such as pizza dough). When creating cookies and cakes, like most Vitamix baking recipes, you will blend the wet ingredients then pour them into a bowl containing the dry ingredients, which you would then mix by hand to combine and gently fold in any additional ingredients you want to remain in pieces, such as nuts or chocolate chips.

ICE CREAM

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesThe Vitamix S30 can also make fabulously fresh ice creams and sorbets. Imagine adding organic frozen bananas, strawberries and raspberries with mounds of raw cacao and rich thick almond butter to your favorite flavors, all while choosing only the healthiest of ingredients!

And though making ice cream is more of an advanced recipe, with all the practice you’re likely to get it should be easy to master.

CLEAN UP

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesUnlike all other Vitamix Jars both S30 Containers are DISHWASHER SAFE, making it the perfect blender for your morning rush out-the-door. Featuring an interchangeable blade base that can be taken off and placed on your dishwasher’s rack (along with both Container Lids) the 40- and 20-ounce Containers can be thoroughly washed with virtually no work from you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The heat on a dishwasher’s bottom rack can WARP the CONTAINER… Make sure to place all items on the top, as well as to take every piece of it apart before placing in the dishwasher; paying careful attention to remove the blade base and seals so that everything gets a thorough cleaning.

Vitamix S30 – WARRANTY & DURABILITY

Comprehensive Vitamix S30 Review by @BlenderBabesTwo of the best advantages of owning a Vitamix are their dependable product warranty and superior USA produced construction. Though past owners have reported at least 15 years of use with no issues, new Vitamix owners can expect up to 20 years of dependable health-giving and life-changing performance!

The S30 comes with a 5-Year Full-Use Warranty, which is two years shorter than their seven-year warranty on most brand new models, but the same as their certified reconditioned models (a 3-Year Extended Warranty is also available direct from the company for an additional cost). Vitamix’s warranty stipulates that if the S30 fails within five years from the date of purchase due to material or workmanship defect resulting from normal wear and tear, VITAMIX WILL REPAIR the BLENDER for FREE! And if the blender is unable to be repaired, Vitamix will REPLACE IT for FREE or REFUND YOUR MONEY!

VITAMIX RISK-FREE 30 DAY IN-HOME TRIAL

Vitamix is so confident you’ll enjoy your new blender that they even offer a RISK-FREE 30 DAY IN-HOME TRIAL. If you’re not completely satisfied with your new Vitamix you can simply return it within 30 days for a full refund—and they’ll even pay for the shipping!

How can you say no to that? Try it out, see what you think. Vitamix backs their product so well because they KNOW the quality of it AND how much you will LOVE IT!!

  1. I’m not sure if this has already been asked, can you process biscuits such as oreo’s and plain biscuits to make dessert bases?

    1. Sydnee Lombard

      Hi Anna! Yes, you can process biscuits and cookies etc to make as a crumble for your desserts! ~Tarashaun

  2. Do you think the S30 is able to handle batters where the dry ingredients are poured in with the wet ingredients? I’ve seen some of your recipes where both dry and wet ingredients go into the blender, but I’m afraid the S30 might not be able to handle it! Have you tested this out or have a video I could check out? Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Blender Babes

      Hey Ashley, great question! The Vitamix S30 is only 790 watts compared to the standard Vitamix which almost double that. Even then Vitamix blenders recommend added the wet ingredients to a bowl with the dry ingredients to hand mix most batter recipes. We’ve done both wet and dry in a Blendtec blender (pancake batters, banana bread) but depending on the recipe/ingredients it’s sometimes best to mix the wet and dry in a bowl separately, as it’s easy to overblend some baked goods and then the product gets too dense. Hope that helps with your question! HAPPY BLENDING! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. This would be ideal to keep at work. I’d love to whip up a smoothie when the Accounting guy walks in with doughnuts!!!

  4. Victoria Sinclair

    This is a cute and really neat machine! I would really like one because my kids love their smoothies in the morning as part of our routine… this machine would totally do the trick! Dishwasher safe too! NICE!

    1. We wish all the Vitamix jars were dishwasher safe!!! One of the best features about the Vitamix S30 personal blender! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I would love to have this for making my morning smoothies and liquifying my favorite leafyt greens!!! Oh and the soups I could make!!!

  6. Michael Lambert

    I will be having a weight loss surgery and will have to drink a bunch of protein shakes. I need a nice blender that works really well.

  7. I would love a Vitamix mainly because I drink smoothies everyday. The current one I have isn’t powerful enough to always give me a smooth consistency. Secondly, I really want to try making banana icecream, as I’ve seen many others do with their Vitamix.

  8. I’d love to win this because it’s the perfect size and fits my needs! I like that it’s dishwasher safe and the personal smoothie cup.

  9. I really love this. I love how compact and small it is. It be perfect to make smoothies for just 1 person. Really quick, easy and easier to clean. I was also thinking how good this would be to make baby food in a smaller container and how it doesnt make much noise like the big ones. Especially when the little one is sleeping!

  10. Jennifer OBrien

    My face has been breaking out recently. I’m hoping that making healthy smoothies will help me glow inside and out! I would love to win this blender!!

    1. Clearer skin is one of the common side effects from adding a green smoothie to your daily routine. Many of our green smoothie challenge community experienced this! You can take the challenge even with a regular blender Jennifer. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Stacey Roberson

    I want to win a Vitamix so I can make healthy, green smoothies in the morning, dips for entertaining family and friends, and delicious soups for dinner.

  12. Christina Strapp

    I would LOVE to win one of these because I have been wanting one for a long time. I have heard so many great things about this blender. My husband and I are trying to lose some weight and get healthy so we are making a lot of smoothies and protein shakes.

    1. Love that you guys are doing it together! Having someone to be accountable to really helps with weight loss. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I would love to win the Vitamix S30 because our blender broke a few months ago and we are missing those yummy smoothies ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. I need to eat healthier and I love that I could also blend some great veggie drinks with this. The five-year warranty is fantastic too! I think this size would fit perfect under the cabinet too!

  15. Ive wanted a Vitamix for a very long time! I do lots of cooking, smoothies, etc.. and am always trying new recipes. I hope to start blogging and be able to share/collaborate with others. Would love the addition of this machine, they’re so fantastic!

  16. Congrats Shashi! We love blender babe food! Working on some new organic baby food recipes this year, since one of our Blender Babes is expecting a new Blender Baby as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. I’ve wanted an S30 for forever- I have a Nutribullet and it sputters and makes weird noises sometimes. We currently don’t have a lot of space so an S30 would be perfect. I make smoothies everyday for myself to eat better, and sometimes using the Nutribullet and dealing with sludge in the blade sometimes can be discouraging.

  18. I would love to win the vitamix because I would love to make my own nut-butters and -milks, smoothies, raw pie bases, dips and soups and eeeeverything else! the vitamix is on my birthday wish list every year but I suppose its just too expensive for my parents to buy one! and for me as well. but im sure that someday i’ll have one! :))

    1. Yes you will Luna!! It’s an expensive up front cost, but owning a vitamix will actually SAVE money well into the future, not only from eating more healthy whole foods at home, but potentially with medical costs! We bet your raw pies are RAWSOME!! Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. This would be great! Our blender currently is a really inexpensive one that we bought several years ago from Walmart. Its good for milk shakes, but for anything requiring ice or frozen fruit or larger chunks it doesn’t ever get smooth enough. If I use a banana for instance, unless I mash it up first my smoothie will be chunky.

  20. i would love to win this new, space-saving Vitamix blender because of its sleek, compact design and versatility. Just as was mentioned in the video, you can purchase extra containers so you have ones fo smoothies, vinaigrettes and for grinding spices for cooking and baking. This is the ideal companion for fast and easy and on-the-go blending. Thank you for sharing!!

  21. I love the size of the S30 Personal Blender! The Dishwasher Safe feature would make clean up easy and that”s awesome. Would love to try making fresh soup, ice cream and smoothies with organic vegetables, fruit and dairy!

  22. My daughter just moved to college and the food there is terrible. She can’t eat a lot of the foods. She’s already lost some weight. I would live to bless her with the Vitamix so she could make smoothies in her dorm.

    1. We wish we had a high powered blender in college! Definitely a quick and easy way to eat healthier and stay on top of studies! Good luck Melissa!

  23. I want to win one because my Vitamix died after 30 years of use. Btw, the whole think was stainless steel. Even the container.

  24. Found the video interesting. Been thinking about upgrading my blender. I think I would call it a mixer after seeing what the Vitamix can do.

  25. I would love to win this as I’m doing the Fast Metabolism Diet right now and my Ninja sucks at doing a couple of the smoothies in the recipes…. the pulp…can’t choke it down. Therefore, this would be perfect ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. i really need a new blender but i want a heavy duty one like the vitamix so i can make yummy smoothies and soups

  27. I’d love to win the S30 because it is smaller and more compact. I’d love to use this for smoothies to go and dressings instead of hauling out the full size Vitamix every time. And it’s just too cute ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Agreed Myra! We can’t get over how small and cute it is, especially compared to regularly sized and Next Generation Vitamix models. ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. Melissa Russell

    Because it’s mostly only me that eats and drinks from my Vitamix it would be great to use one that saves space!

  29. I am looking for something to use for large tasks but that I can also use in place of something like a Nutri bullet. This has been very helpful. Thanks so much! I would love to have one!

  30. I need a new blender and this would be perfect. My fiance’s mom keeps trying to sell me on a Magic Bullet, but I want this! It would be perfect to take my smoothies everywhere and whip up vegan goodies. Plus, my current blender is too tall/big.

  31. I would love to own one of these to make my elderly mother here smoothies in the morning, make my daily juices and experiment in the kitchen with making soups.

    1. Yes absolutely Tanya! We love that you are also helping others learn how to detox. Would love to learn more about your program. ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. A Vitamix would allow me to create superfood snacks and drinks for my five grandchildren who are always demanding something to eat, snack on or drink. Just think: nourishing them on a quick “salsa” with organic blue corn chips or a smoothie packed with power foods! I would be thrilled to have a Vitamix!

  33. I want one of these blenders so badly! I’ve been limping along with a regular blender and it’s just not any fun. I’d use a good blender daily, if it were easy to use and easy to clean. I’m trying so hard to be healthy and get more fruits and veggies in.

  34. I’d love to win a vitamix it could do so much more than my blender that smells like burning every time we make a smoothie.

  35. Stephanie Phelps

    I would love to win because I love to be in the kitchen and this is so versatile it would be used by my whole family!

    1. Yes we actually think the Vitamix S30, although small, could be used by more than 1-2 people. Especially if you get more Blend and Go cups, you could each get your smoothie ready and be out the door in the morning! ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. I would love to win this Vitamix blender because I have vowed to lose the weight I gained after I quit smoking and this I think would help me to add more veggies and fruits to my diet. Thanks for the chance to win.

  37. I became homeless a year ago & my bro took me in. He had pretty much any kitchen appliance & gadget for cooking + a lot for baking. Guess I got spoiled. Am now trying to get back on my feet & it’s hard not having all those tools (I had to abandon almost all of my own kitchen gear when I lost my home.) This would go a long way to helping me stay within budget AND eat healthy, so that I can be independent & self-supporting again.

  38. Veronique Daoust

    A smaller blender would be fantastic for travelling! I travel a lot and struggle with finding foods that I can eat during my travels. Having my own high-speed blender come with me means that I would have delicious green smoothies with me everywhere I go, giving me tons of energy!

    1. Exactly! You nailed one of the biggest pros of a Vitamix S30 – it’s travel size! Other mix and go type blenders are not powerful enough or good enough to create super smoothie green smoothie recipes, and if you wanted you could quickly make your own nut butter and have a great snack to take with you! Or grab some frozen fruit and make a quick sorbet. It’s so much fun! Good luck Veronique! xx

    1. Ha! The way a “smoothie” should be. Without a doubt, Vitamix is definitely one of the best blenders for smoothies! Good luck Michelle! ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. I’d love this blender! I currently have my Mom’s old Oster from 20 or 30 years ago. It has a glass carafe, but that is about it going for it. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven’t found a blender that just works. I have to stop, shake, start, stop, stir, start, stop, shake, scream!!! Sign me up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. I just went through chemo and divorce at the same time and the first step in getting my life back is getting my health and strength back. Here’s to 2015: It’s going to be my year. So…here’s to “Smoothie” sailing!

  41. I would like a Vitamix because I know it would help me make a positive change in my life. I’ve always had trouble with my weight, and even though I love fruits and vegetables, It’s hard to pack as many in as I’d like to by just eating them.

    I’m trying to change a lot of things in my life (where I live, employment, general happiness) and I think the key to getting things working better is my health. If I didn’t feel so low on energy, things might start to come together.

  42. Tammy Schweitzer Catterton

    I like too win it for my hubby so he can use too make healthier items like fruit smoothies too soup that healthier for him

  43. The new vitamix S30 looks good. I have a blendtech and love using the blender babes recipes. I may give this one to my sister and niece. After trying it out I may want to keep.

  44. Courtney Marsha

    I would love to have your blender!! I currently have one of the first Ninja blenders. You can do so much more with yours. I would love to have the Vitamix to help fulfill my weight loss goals.

  45. I love the Vitamix 750 Pro, however, I am a family of one and the 750 requires blending a substantial amount. The S30 personalizes the experience and allows me to take it to go. That is right in step with my lifestyle. A total lifestyle approach!

  46. Hi enjoyed this review. I want to start eating smoothies on a regular basis for better health. Winning this blender would be great!

  47. I would love to win because I make smoothies for breakfast and lunch, and I’ve heard wonderful things about Vitamix Blenders.

  48. My daughter has a rare food allergy and this would be perfect to get a max amount of nutrients into her daily diet without making a HUGE batch of something ๐Ÿ™‚ We’d love to make whole fruit and veggie smoothies in this baby!

    1. Thanks for entering Courtney! What food allergy does your daughter have? Do you know what healthy smoothie recipes could help her with it or that she needs to avoid?

    1. We feel the same way Larry! The Vitamix 5200 is a bit too heavy and takes up too much space in a suitcase, but we’ve been known to bring it in the car for a road trip! ๐Ÿ˜€

  49. I would love to try one because the blender I currently have is super old and barely even mixes anything. When it DOES blend things, it overheats and won’t work again for at least an hour! Ugh! Upgrade me please!!

  50. I want to win this because…You can make just about anything, and you can make anything better than you made it before, while enhancing old favorite recipes. and you can make soup!

  51. This is the perfect blender for a single. I would love to win this so that I can step up my smoothie making, but still have money to buy supplies.

  52. Would love this blender! My old blender broke and still debating what blender to get. Miss having smoothies ๐Ÿ™

    1. We couldn’t live without our healthy smoothie recipes either H.C.! Have you narrowed down which blender models you are deciding between? Blendtec vs Vitamix or are you considering other options?

  53. Reason to want a Vitamix. It is tme to discard the ancient ways of preparing foods to entering the more quicker and healthier means of preparing fresh, nourishing meals! Out with the microwave, processed foods to a more nourishing way of life. Yes, winning a Vitamix will not only shed old ways of doing things but also shed pounds and unwanted toxins from the body!

  54. Video presents the most vital aspects of using the Vitamix. What can be added is to make fresh vinaigrette dressings by using the smaller jar frist to blend fresh spices, then add to the recipes for the dressing. Excellent!

  55. I would love to win the Vitamix S30 because of it’s versatility to do so many things, from making soups, to ice cream to smoothies, I need it!

  56. nice blender…… the video was very informative.
    I wasn’t able to comment on the you tube site for some reason so I am commenting here.

  57. I have a regular sized Vitamix but used to use a bullet for smaller things. It didn’t work nearly as well, but was sufficient for some small jobs. This is absolutely perfect. A personal size and Vitamix quality. Great review. Thanks.

  58. I learn from your review. I never knew about the difference between wet and dry chopping. You are all very pretty and proof that high powered blender works

  59. I need a blender like this. I have went through so many blenders that I need to just break down and get a good one!

  60. I would love to get my hands on a vitamix! As a broke, college, vegan student, I practically depend on my wal-mart blender and microwave, and it get’s old buying new blenders constantly because they can not handle the frozen fruit! mmmmmmmm yes!

    1. Yes, we think it’s much better than most other small mix and go blenders. It can make nut butter and ice cream!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  61. Yes this truly is the perfect sized small blender for many kitchens… and blending duos! ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck Trish!

  62. I always like how comprehensive your reviews are. I love that the parts can go into the dishwasher (not that the other containers are hard to clean, though!). It would be great to just blend and take a smoothie, rather than transfer to a portable container.

    1. Absolutely! We LOVE to travel with our blender! You don’t realize how much you use it until you don’t have it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck Lisa!

  63. I would like to win this blender because I have a juicer and having a high powered blender will enable me to add fiber into my diet without turning on the stove!

    1. Yes the blender vs juicer question gets asked a lot. And we thinkโ€ฆ both! If you had to choose 1 of course we would go with a Blendtec or Vitamix or other high powered blender for the fiber and more use – however both are amazing health machines that we can all benefit from. ๐Ÿ˜€ P.S. The blenders are WAAAAAY easier to clean too, so that helps! Good luck Deitra! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. We will definitely provide lots of healthy recipies for you, and are working on a cleanse so its easy to choose what to make!

  64. Christine Mayfield

    I want to win because my old blender sucks and does not work well. I have wanted one for a few years but have not been able to buy one.

  65. Great review! I am underweight and it’s super hard for me to gain any mass. I would love to have such a compact, convenient, and efficient machine to add plenty of liquid calories and protein to my daily food intake!

  66. I currently use a nutribullet for my smoothies and though it works OK, in order to make the full 64 oz of GGS I have to do it in multiple batches which is time consuming. It would be great to toss it all in one blender and be done with it. Thanks!

  67. I would love to win this for my smoothies! Sometimes I’ll have one three times a day! This is the perfect size.

    1. We agree! Best mix and go blender on the market – although not the cheapest, it will definitely last longer and can do more. Thanks Trish! Happy Blending ๐Ÿ™‚

  68. I want to win because I currently have a Blendtec–which I love, but I would love something smaller when I’m just making a smoothie for myself. Leaving the Blendtec for the bigger jobs. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  69. Would just love to win one of these, with a busy family, this would help me to make fast and healthy smoothies…etc..

  70. This little personal blender would be amazing!! I love vitamix products and am excited to try all of your smoothie and juice recipes!!

  71. I would love to win a Vitamix S30 to fulfill my new year resolution. Eat healthy and stay healthy. Making soups are never so easy as it is with Vitamix. I did try the soups made by Vitamix at an event @ COSTCO they are so Yumm , healthy and very easy to make.

  72. My goal for my family is to eat healthier next year, my children do not like a lot of veggies. I have found that either by juicing or shredding and mixing them I can sneak healthy veggies into my cooking. Right now I use a mini mixer, all I have, and this would be a great tool for my kitchen!

  73. I think i would like it because it won’t take up much counter space. We have a small kitchen with a limited amount of counter space so this would work well for us.

  74. I’d love to win a Vitamix S30 because I started eating more fresh produce this year and plan to continue my healthy eating journey in 2015. I have a degree in nutrition, but will admit that I fell off track for a few years. I think the Vitamix will help me get healthy again!

  75. I really would love to win the Vitamix S30 blender, for starters I can’t afford one right now, and I love making smoothies and I used to have one and it was an older version so I would like to upgrade to a newer version. Right now I do not have a working blender

  76. I Would love to win this blender because I have never owned a blender and I believe it would really motivate me to eat healthy and make healthier foods for my family! thank you so much for the chance!

  77. I would use the travel cup to more easily take my whole juices with me in the car. So much better than fooling around with go cups!

  78. I love that it is smaller but packs a punch like the bigger Vitamix. This would be perfect for my smoothies in the morning.

  79. I have a full size vitamix and LOVE it! would love the personal size vitamix for those times that I would like to make just 1 or 2 servings.

  80. I have limited space in a small house, live alone most of the time, and this is exactly what I want and need. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the brand and would feel very happy to have it for my cooking and smoothies, dressings, sauces, etc..and making things go faster.

  81. Mary Beth Elderton

    I think this would be perfect for Hubz and me. We like smoothies, salsas, pestos, etc, but usually just need one or two servings.

  82. I would really like this for my whole family! It would be great to make smoothies to help them have their veggies and fruit ! Thanks for the chance! I saw these at cocci and was blown away by it! Awesome!!

  83. I currently use a bullet for blending powders into almond milk since it’s a one serving drink. But I’d love to leave a personal size Vitamix on my counter!

  84. A smaller Vitamix would be great to have for traveling. At 12lbs I would even pack less clothing in a carry-on just to take this with me! Any feedback on whether the base leaks?

    Thanks!

    1. Agreed! This is a great travel blender! We used to take our Blendtec Classic b/c it’s about 6 pounds, but this one is even smaller than Blendtec and would save more space for *other* essentials! ๐Ÿ™‚ The well constructed base isn’t like a $100 blender that leaks and comes with tighteners, etc. Nothing leaking in our testing so farโ€ฆ it’s another very well made machine by Vitamix with a long warranty that should last even longer. If anything should change though we’ll let people know! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. CONGRATS!! Yes absolutely! Much better than a baby bullet or magic bullet – those don’t get as smooth and definitely will not last long (maybe 1 to 2 years) enough to make smoothies for her/him until he’s a teenager! ๐Ÿ˜€ Good luck Brooke!
