I had a Vitamix 3600 with the reversible motor, stainless steel container with spigot that I picked up off CL for $50. Used it for smooothies and general blending. I liked it for the retro appeal, but the OL hated it.
We were at the county Fair and bought the Vitamix 5000 back when it was the new model-It was the only thing I've ever bought from a Fair vendor, but with all the extras tossed in and the fact that I sold the retro 3600 for $150 in 30 minutes after listing it on CL it wasn't a big hit to the wallet.
Lately I've been making soups from the online recipes.
