Does anyone have one and can recommend ?

I'm buying it so I don't have to buy a blender or food processor, slow cooker etc, get rid of my juicer ( which I only use to make cider ) and so I can make quick and easy healthy food.

The main differences with the Vitamix will be the power of the motor (1200W/1380W) and any accessories you get with it as well as the number of pre-programmed functions. Vitamix have a 7 year warranty.

You should also look at the Blendtec (which was the original and which Vitamix copied and had to pay heft compensation to Blendtec for infringing their patents). The cheapest Blendtec (1560W) can be found for around £299 incl. a number of accessories such as an additional Wildside jug. Blendtec have an 8 year warranty.

The next level down, the Magimix Le Blender (1200W) is also very good and receives an average 5/5 in reviews across multiple websites like Amazon and John Lewis. Magimix have a 3 year warranty.

Vitamins are expensive urine, as even the most basic western diet has more vitamins that you require, this includes someone who lives on ready meals. They can even be dangerous if doeses are not monitored, only take vitamins if advice by real doctor.

overkill for average family , try Magimix if you want to spend over £100.
