Certified Reconditioned S50 ($169.96, originally $329.95, vitamix.com)
Two pre-programmed settings (smoothie and Power Blend) make it easy to blend your way to delicious smoothies — but the blender can do far more, with more than 10 total settings to make the most out of your recipe. It comes with two containers to suit whatever your blending needs for the day are: There’s a 20-ounce size perfect for taking on the road, or a 40-ounce size that’s great for soups, sauces and more.
