Vitamix update:  I purchased one with a cash card I got for a sales contest at work.  It was on sale through Amazon ($299) on black friday.  I love it!

I love that you love it. We can be smoothie twins. Or soup twins, or hummus twins.

Vitamix blender?

There is a class action lawsuit in regard to the blade I think. If you have a Vitamix, you should be getting a postcard to choose whether you want a cash amount of $70 or a replacement blade. They say the blade sheds some black stuff that isn't a hazard to your health so it is your choice to get money or a blade replacement.

There may be different settlement offers for different products. I think our offer was $25 in Vitamix products (not cash) or replacement blade (I haven't read myself yet, just what I recall DW telling me).

This happened to ours!  The bearing went out while in use and filled the container with black gunk and smoke, what a mess.

I found the page to join the class-action: http://www.blendersettlement.com/

Mine is $70 credit (or replacement blade) but just discovered it is for buying Vitamix products. Crap! I just looked at the website and there is nothing I want. Guess I will just go with the free replacement blades. Hahahaha, maybe I can sell them or the originals on ebay.
