    I found a Vitamix 5000

    On my morning walk, I found a Vitamix 5000 someone had set out for free so I snatched it up. Upon inspection, the wet vessel is cracked and leaks but the motor seems fine. So I ordered a new vessel and the proprietary wrench to remove the blade assembly. Hopefully, that is all I need to get it rebuilt and working. Does anyone have any experience replacing the vessel for their Vitamix?

      It sure looks that way. If I'm right, I'll have a working Vitamix for $50. If I'm wrong the away team just scored 50 points on me. But you gotta play to win.

    I bought a refurbished one back in April for 40% of the retail price. It looked brand new when I unboxed it. It’s absolutely the best blender I have ever owned or used. You lucked into that.

    We have a Vitamix and we like it, we were at Cleveland home and garden show maybe 15 years ago and my wife and I had been walking for hours, we came upon the Vidamix booth and they had lots of chairs so we sat down at the back and after seeing the results we bought one it was $400.00 so it is worth the $50.00 you have spent. I used it yesterday to finish my fermented hot sauce.

      From just the few hot sauces I have made, I can really see what a quality blender can do. It's amazing the difference in results I get verses what I see on Youtube with Vitamixes, Ninjas, etc.

      Yes power and speed get the job done every time. Make sure you put the lid on when you use it on high.

    Thanks to 1 day shipping the suspense for me is over. Replacement was easy and I'm now the owner of a $50 Vitamix.

      The fact that I had to buy a new vessel is actually a positive since I now have a clean and pristine vessel. I probably should have made my own wrench from scrap plywood but c'est la vie.
