Vitamix Venturist V1200, Professional-Grade Blender | $260 | Amazon
Vitamix 5300 Blender, Renewed | $200 | Amazon
Will it blend? With a Vitamix, the answer is yes. And right now, you can pick up a refurbished $260 Venturist blender to blend, chop, emulsify and grind your way through Julia Child’s cookbook.
And while these are refurbished, Amazon promises that the product works and looks like new, and is backed by the 90-day Amazon Renewed Guarantee (which says you can get a “replacement or refund within 90 days of receipt.”)
Better still, these blenders are powerful enough to clean themselves. Just add water and some dish soap and blend your way to a clean container.
Just remember, these prices—while still a little pricey—will only stick around for the day or until sold out. But at the end of the day, remember, the Vitamix is an investment that’ll pay off year after year.
