Buying a Vitamix (or any other performance blender) is not a decision one takes lightly, and it is typically reserved for the person who already knows what a Vitamix is capable of doing (hint: it’s not just for milkshakes).
One overlooked aspect of buying a Vitamix, however, has nothing to do with its performance and has everything to do with a far more boring subject — square footage. The 5200 and the E310 (the two most accessible, popular models for home use) both take up a lot of countertop space when in use and cabinet space when in reserve.
Vitamix’s S50 blender, however, does not have this issue and is made to the same rigorous, unbending specifications of its bulkier cousins (that is to say, its motor, blades and component, performance-related parts are all materials that do not wear down easily). More specifically, the S50’s base takes up 49-square-inches of real estate, where the other two take up 63 (the 5200) and 84 (the E310). The S50 also comes with two blend chambers — one for single-serve smoothies and a typical blender top — where the other two come with just the standard blend chamber.
The S50 is $39 off on Amazon today.
