My KitchenAid blender ate itself alive. Should I spring for a Vitamix Pro 300?

The Pro 300 has a pulse momentary switch where the high/variable switch is on the 5200. I've read back through the blender questions here, and I hope it's not too soon again to ask. I typically cook for 2-6 people and wonder if the capacity of the Vitamix is too much for me. Thanks

I have a 5200 and love it. Had it for 6 years and use it all of the time and cook for 1 to 10. Don't have any experience with the Pro 300. Vita Mixes are work horses and last forever.

I also have a 5200 and love it. Worth every penny and they have a fabulous warranty. Vitamix now makes smaller capacity containers, as well, though I believe the "normal" size works well no matter how small a capacity you require.

I was just given a 5200 recently and we love it! My daughter makes smoothies and lattes that we never could have in our old blender. She makes smoothies for just one and two in it.

Thanks to all you happy new year names I know from this site. I'll surely get the Vitamix. I just needed your support.

Can anyone recommend a particular model of juicer, mid-range, also capable of doing hard vegetables like carrots and beets? I would be using it every day. Thanks.

It depends on how long you had the KitchenAid, but I'd contact the company and see if they will replace it or fix it.
