Vitamix Help - Which Model

jenhen2 | Jun 5, 2012 02:08 PM

I need some advice - I am ready to pull the trigger on a Vita Mix and am torn about which model. I've narrowed it down to the 5200 Deluxe (with 32 oz dry container and 32 oz wet container) on the Vita Mix website versus the Pro 300 from Sur la Table. I live in an apartment with limited counter space, and there's just 3 in my family, so I was thinking I could leave the 5200 with the 32oz container on my counter. I was intrigued by the supposed quieter motor on the Pro 300, but then a couple of YouTube video seemed to show that the Pro 300 wasn't actually quieter. For just about $100 more, seems like the 2 extra containers with the 5200 are a real bargain. Thoughts? Suggestions? Other considerations? I'm very excited for this, but it's a big investment, so I want to choose wisely. Thank you!
