VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

Good fact checking. I'll be sure I know what I am buying when I move forward. The folks at Raw Power seem to really like this brand as well.

Is Semak Chinese? I thought they were made in Australia. or at least some large percentage was made in Australia. Right?

VitaMix Blender, is it worth it?

I live in the US now (been here since I was four but experience a sort a national schizophrenia at times). As with art, I may not know all there is to know but I know what I like. I lived in Greenwich, CT for a few years and friends had super blenders they never used - blaspheme!!! They didn't know value - they just got what someone else got. Well I was eating the typical american diet then so I can't knock them. Now? I am torn and just waiting for the right time to jump in (or for Christmas). Cheers and thanks. Maybe I'll be a Vitamix owner - maybe a Semak (just to buck the system) hehe

No doubt. I used one for years working myself through school in fine dining and that blender as simple as it seemed was a real workhorse - always dependable, always consistent. The Vitacrush VCE1500 was compared to the Vitamix in an Australian blender YouYube comparison where they dropped large pumpkin chunks in with a little water and did well. Getting good reviews. Warranty in Australia is par for the course but Vitamix is priced high there probably due to shipping and tarrifs. Still a great value. I am Australian so I checked it out. Don't get me wrong, I really like what Vitamix is putting out. No worries.

Yes. As I learn how to live on a Raw diet, I am becoming increasingly aware that a commercial grade blender will give better results. My vote is Yes but not necessarily this brand. I want a Semak VCE1500 from Australia but then I digress.
