The Vitamix 5200 blender is down to $304.75 on Amazon right now. The normal price for the 5200 is $450, and you'd expect a decent deal if it dropped to $400. This deal price is $30 better than we've ever seen and easily its lowest price ever. This price only applies to the White version. The Black version is down to $366, though, which ain't too shabby either.

The Vitamix 5200 is the king of blenders. It's as expensive as it is because nothing else performs better. Whatever you want to do, it'll do, whether that means grinding coffee beans or making margaritas for Friday movie night. It comes with a 64-ounce container which can make large batches of smoothies for everyone in your house. It has a variable speed control that can be adjusted even mid-blend. The blades move so fast they can heat up cold ingredients from friction alone, but this can also be used for making sorbet and ice cream.

The biggest negative for the Vitamix is that it's not dishwasher safe, but blenders are easy to clean (just blend soap and water). The 5200 comes with a standard seven-year warranty.
