Vitamix is the undisputed king of blenders. The brand’s beloved products win our best blender review every year, and they are a staple in the Epicurious test kitchen. But if you know the name, you know that all this raving comes with a caveat: Vitamix blenders are not cheap.
Of course, you absolutely get what you pay for. All Vitamix blenders—the iconic 5200 model and the tech-savvy Ascent series alike—are high-powered and versatile, able to blend velvety sauces and hot soups, light and frothy smoothies, nut milks, and nut butters. The steep price tags make sense, and sales are usually few and far between.
This Amazon Prime Day, however, a handful of Vitamix models are available at a serious discount, including Epi’s blender review–winning model. This year there are even early Prime Day deals on our favorite blenders, so you can start shopping now. If you’ve been considering upgrading your blender this year, now is the best opportunity to get a high-quality machine for a fraction of the usual price. Read about the best Prime Day deals on these professional-grade blenders—and find out which one might be right for you—below.
All the Prime Day Vitamix Deals
The classic: Vitamix 5200
The Vitamix 5200 is the brand’s standard model. Again and again the Epi team has found it to be by far the best blender for smoothies…and anything else you can blend. We think it’s the best Vitamix for most people because it blends silky sauces, crushes ice to perfection, and even emulsifies mayo. The Vitamix 5200 has the standard stainless-steel blades, variable speed control, and a 64-ounce container. It contains no extra buttons or settings that clog up the base; this is just a straightforward, extremely efficient, high-performance blender packing a ton of power. The only downside is the price—but today you can snag it for $50 off.
The professional: Vitamix Explorian Blender
A little more affordable than the 5200, the Explorian blender is just as powerful and versatile as the classic model, but with a shorter and squatter frame, which makes it a good tool for tight-on-space kitchens. We like the low-profile container, which makes it easy to tamp rough ingredients like torn kale or whole almonds toward the blade while blending. For Amazon Prime Day, you can pick one up for just $179.
The smart guy: Vitamix A3300 Ascent Series Smart Blender
Editor’s note: This blender is no longer on sale.
The Ascent Series blender marks Vitamix’s foray into smart gadgets: It has all the muscle you’re used to from the brand with added tech features like wireless connectivity, a programmable digital timer, and touchscreen interface. You can even hook it up to Vitamix’s app to unlock 17 programs and 500-plus recipes. Plus, it’s $150 off today.
The add-ons: Vitamix Aer Disc Container, or an extra tamper
If you already have a Vitamix but are looking to upgrade your machine’s capabilities, consider the add-on aer disc container. Read more about why we love it so much here, but to sum it up: This attachment allows your Vitamix to go beyond the standard blender capabilities, adding whipping, muddling, foaming, and emulsifying to your culinary repertoire thanks to its aer disc. The tool separates liquid and solid ingredients while blending to create luxurious textures.
Additionally, if you’ve lost the tamper that comes with your Vitamix, you can buy one at a discount right now.
The immersion blender: Vitamix Immersion Blender
If you can’t fit a countertop blender in your kitchen right now, consider an immersion blender from the maker of our favorite high-powered blenders.
