At the time of this Vitamix 6300 review (also known as Vitamix 1891) for more than 3 years, and it is by far the most expensive and important small kitchen appliance purchase we’ve made thus far.
Please note that this review is necessarily long in order to provide with enough information to help you in your research.
(Update: We’ve had this Vitamix for nearly 4 years now and it is still going strong)
Healthy green smoothies, an easy way to get your fruits and vegetables, are a regular part of our diet now.
We found out about Vitamix a long while ago but it wasn’t until a trip to Costco in late 2014 (crazy, I know) that we really began to pay attention to the brand. They do a really good job selling these machines with the live demonstrations.
With a loud microphone and plenty of fruits and vegetables at her disposal, Sharon, the Vitamix demonstrator, worked her magic. “You Sir, have a try”, I did and, whatever that concoction was, (I forget but it had apple and celery and some other stuff) it was great. That was the best green smoothie thingy I ever had up til’ that point at least.
There was no way on this planet or Mars even that I was going to pay $500 for a blender. Or so I thought. I mean it’s just a blender, right?
We wouldn’t buy a new super-blender on that cold fall day. But the seed had been planted. And my subsequent research lead me into a world I never knew existed. A world of blending and of one that you could only access with the right equipment. Three years later and we are still in love with our Vitamix.
Note: The Vitamix 6300 has been discontinued but you can still find them for sale online. A refurbished model – the 1891 – is a great way to go.
Hopefully this vitamix 6300 review helped you out. Our Vitamix was the best small kitchen appliance purchase that we’ve made thus far. We’ve been using our machine nearly every day for the last 3 years and we’ve had absolutely no issues yet. The only potential issue we could see one having is that this machine is tall. If you have a small kitchen you might not be able to place it where you want to.
This thing is versatile, comes with an amazing recipe book that will show you all of the wonderful creations you can make with your new toy.
Unfortunately, the Vitamix 6300 is a retired product, meaning that the company won’t be making any new units. But you can still purchase a refurbished unit. From what I can tell reading customer feedback these machines are like-new and the bonus is that you will save quite a bit of money by buying refurbished. On top of that they still come with a 5-year warranty.
If you’re going with Vitamix, I don’t think you can go wrong.
