View Full Version : Question about old stainless steel vita-mixes
10-27-2007, 07:24 AM
I have a chance to buy an old Vita-mix for 130 dollars. I don't know if that's a good deal or not. It's a 2200 I believe. Does anyone have one? I can't afford much for a new blender, but my blender isn't doing the job I need it to do.
Thanks for any help!!

I had a 2200 sidewinder Vita Mix for 25 years and it was a work horse. I just replaced it 2 months ago with a 3.5 hp Blender as it finally quit working. It is a great blender but is only 1hp so you have to be careful not to put to many things in it at one time. However, I do think $130 is way too much for a blender that is that old. If you can get one for $75 that it plenty to pay for one. I hope this helps. I really did love mine but it does not compare to the blenders of today.

Thanks!!! That's what I was looking for. It was on Ebay, I asked him for free shipping, but emailed and turned it down. I figured it was too much. I just really want a vitamix so bad and can't afford to spend much, but don't want to waste my money!!! Thanks for the advice.

It's good that the sale didn't go through, I had an old vitamix and the noise it made was horrendous! It sounded like an airplane taking off in my kitchen. I would put on earplugs to try and use it, and it really didn't hold a candle to the newer ones.
I've since upgraded to the new one, I got it in about 1999 and have never regretted the investment.
