I have some friends with Vitamix Blenders who SWEAR by them.
Take control over what goes into your meals with this high-speed blender. Easily whip up wholesome smoothies, hot soups and frozen desserts right in the pitcher using the variable speed control and High button. Ingredients can be added safely while the machine is running thanks to a plug on the lid and a collar on the tamper that prevents it from hitting the blades. This kitchen wonder allows you to prepare healthy creations with consistent precision, making it perfect for family meals and entertaining.
Note: Each Certified Reconditioned motor unit goes through a 17-point inspection. You will receive a new container shell, two-part lid, tamper and cookbook package. Vitamix guarantees the same quality and durability for every machine, regardless of its original name or product series. Labels may reflect the following C-Series machines: 5200, CIA™ Professional Series®, Creations® II, Creations® GC, Professional Series® 200, Total Nutrition Center® or TurboBlend® VS. Switch grips may also vary by model. Any price comparison is to a new, non-refurbished product price.
They weren’t popping up on my front page so I just typed Vitamix in the search box and they popped right up.

The new ones run about $450 and I couldn’t find refurbished ones this inexpensive on other well known sites!
