Tap tap… Is this thing still on? A quick heads-up: Vitamix is running serious discounts for the Vitamix Days Sale (starting at noon Eastern Time, today Sept 22nd 2021). I’m not sure how they built up the excess inventory for this with all the supply chain troubles of this year, but here we are. There are a number of great machines on sale, and containers too (including the Stainless Steel Container and Food Processor Attachment). Some discounts are over $200! If you know someone who wants a Vitamix, please forward this page. (If you order via these links, Joy of Blending may receive a commission—lower than usual, but I want to help people save.) These are the lowest that Vitamix prices go. In principle the sale goes until noon Eastern on the 24th, but I don’t think the main machines will be around that long. Try to get orders in as early as possible on the 22nd.
A bunch of machines are on sale, but I recommend picking between the Recon Pro 750 and the Recon 3500. Get the Recon Pro 750 if you just care about solid blending. Get the Recon 3500 if you prefer the more modern/premium look, and/or compatibility with more accessories like the Food Processor Attachment. (You can read about all the differences on my Ascent Review Page.) If those sell out, the Recon V1200 is still a fine machine at a good price.
Now is also a good time to pick up an extra container, since almost all of them are on sale. And then there are a few other interesting accessories like the Food Cycler and the Immersion Blender…. See the full list on the Vitamix Days Page.
