In a battle of the Vitamix 750 vs 5200, is there really a difference? Or is this just a marketing tool designed to get you to buy the latest model of essentially the same product?
Many people own the Vitamix 5200 and have been using it for years with complete satisfaction. So why get a new one?
Well, when you test the two in a side by side comparison, you really see the difference.
You’ll see in the video above how the two fare in the dreaded “Apple Test”.
A whole, unpeeled apple is placed in both blenders, and the first round is in fact a bit comical.
The Vitamix 5200 put the apple in the middle and then just kept it in place on the spinning blades. Basically, it just peeled the bottom! I know you could and should use the tamper in this instance. But for pure experimental purposes, this is a very interesting and revealing result.
The Vitamix 750 Professional pulverised that apple without any need of assistance. Winner Round 1: the Vitamix 750.
In Round 2, when the apples were cut, the Vitamix 750 outperformed the 5200 visibly in the strainer test.
The Vitamix 750 left almost nothing behind, whereas the 5200 left behind enough pulp to make a single serving of applesauce!
So, in the Vitamix 750 vs 5200 battle, the Vitamix 750 is the clear winner.
