Customer Reviews & Opinions
The Vitamix S30 scores 4.4 out of 5 stars by 50 Amazon reviewers at time of writing. 68% gave 5 stars, 10% gave 4 stars, 4% gave both 3 and 2 stars, while 14% only gave it a 1 star rating. Many users absolutely loved it, some saying it was the best blender ever. And it was hailed as a blender that can do everything.
Not everyone was happy though. The machine is considered way over priced by many, especially as some of the construction is cheap plastic. Some say it overheats and that the contents spill over the blades and require cleaning between smoothies.
Your Questions Answered
Q: since this motor is 790 watts, is it strong enough to make ice cream and soups?
A: I have made soups with this blender.
Q: Is it loud? I have a nutri bullet personal mixer and it is so loud I have to use ear protectors to make my morning smoothie.
A: I was surprised that it’s not as loud in use as I expected. Not as long as you aren’t crunching large ice cubes, it can be very loud at its highest speed. Always have liquid in the container prior.
Q: Does this come with both the 20 oz. personal container and 40 oz. blending jar?
A: Sure does! Both work great. I will also add that the blender is a lot quieter than I thought it would be. Very happy with my purchase.
Q: How is it at blending raw beets & carrots?
A: Processes them well, but way too thick with fiber to drink. Must water down a lot. I juice carrots and beets and use this for fruits.
