A pair of new Vitamix blenders are also on sale at Amazon: The, along with the more powerful — are down to $250 and $390 respectively.

It’s just $100 ($45 off) during the Black Friday Vitamix flash sale.
This is an “Amazon Renewed” product, meaning Amazon proper will cover you for 90 days if anything goes wrong (or you just want a refund).

Sur la Table
A new Explorian is also on sale at Amazon. While we often find this model on “sale” for $280, it rarely drops below that, so the $250 price tag is a legit deal if you feel more comfortable bagging a brand new blender.
For a slightly amped-up Vitamix, the Professional Series 750 is also on sale, down more than $200 to $390. This comes with a large 64-ounce low-profile container and has an added self-cleaning function.
One of the Vitamix claims to fame is soup: While blending, the blades heat up enough to turn cold ingredients into hot soup within about 6 minutes.
