Vitamix is the Cadillac of blenders, so when they put out something new, we pay attention—along with the fitness and foodie crowds that so love the Vitamix. Well, they ought to be pleased with the Vitamix S30 ($700ish, depending on the retailor). It’s the same powerful performance you’d expect from a Vitamix, just sized for one person. The motor is powerful enough to crush anything we’ve tried (though admittedly we always go back to ice), the blades are laser cut stainless steel, and the base attaches to either container. It comes with a 20 ounce container ideal for bringing a smoothie or soup to work, and a forty ounce container good for dinner for two. Both containers are BPA-free.
