    Cheapest place to get Vita-Mix Blender 31st Oct 10 at 6:38 PM
    I'm after a vitamix TNC at the cheapest price. I'm aware that you can purchase one for a discount at costco and various food/trade shows across the country, but unfortunately my nearest costco doesn't have it and there isn't a show up in NE scotland any time soon. From checking online it seems my options are rather limited to the following:

    1. It's priced at £429 on the vitamix website but P&P is extra (£40) (although there are internet codes which will forego P&P from affiliate companies).

    2. John Lewis sell the 010231 model, which is the same as the TNC model at £429.

    And that's it! I can't do better than £429. Anyone know how I can get it cheaper?

    (As a side, anyone know if I can get the 5200 model with full 7yr warranty in the UK?)

    The prices of the Vitamix are rarely discounted, but you do get lots of add-ons...extra jug (worth over £100), various recipe books and the like. It's well worth a look if you have a show in your county.

    For anyone interested, the Great Yorkshire Show is in Harrogate early next month and they have a cracking Vitamix stand. I spend an hour there watching the demos every year
    I let my mind wander and it never came back!

    Hi I bought a reconditioned Vitamix from John Lewis for £299.99. I am not sure if they are still selling them but it is worth checking. Another make that is almost as good (and half the price) is an Omniblend. They can be picked up for around £200 and do everything that a Vitamix does.

    Buy a blender with bigger jar for smoothies aside from considering its spinning blades. One of its benefits is to get the thick liquid down and mix them thoroughly.

    I've been looking for a cost friendly vitamix. The cheapest I've found so far is the John Lewis refurbished models for £350.

    Does anyone know of any cheaper ones kicking about?

    Read the reviews of them.......they get slated for reliability and are no where near as good as Vitamix or Optimum. Omniblend is cheap Chinese rubbish.

    The guarantee is generally around 7 years (though I see that this refurb model is 5 years) but they seem to last much longer than that. I've heard of people having them for 20 years.....that certainly wouldn't be the case for many other manufacturers.

    I bought a Nutrimaster in Sept 2015 from ideal world.It has all the abilities of a vitamix with a 2hp motor.My daughter saw how much I loved mine and bought one too.I use it everyday more than once.I've made soup,smoothies,hummus,guacamole,gluten free flours,vegan cheese sauce,tomato based sauce, gluten free pizza dough,nut milks etc.I have coeliac & lactose intolerance so it's amazing for me and saved so much money.We both paid £159.99 for ours in 4 monthly instalments.I bought it after watching a presentation on it.I can say with absolute certainty that I have never regretted the purchase & neither has my daughter.We actually tell our machines that we love them! I had an issue a month ago where the blades came loose in the jug .Customer service with nutrimaster is the best and a replacement machine(not
    just jug!) was couriered to me.
    It has made anything I've wanted with regards to my dietary requirements.

    Regardless of the reason you decided to purchase a Vitamix 5200, the reality is that buying a Vitamix is not cheap, in-fact, it's practically an investment of a small fortune!
