First, we’ll admit something. Your regular blender is fine. It can blend milkshakes and sauces just fine. And “fine” is, well, fine. But there’s a whole world out there that’s way better than fine, and it starts with a truly high-powered blender.

Most of the time, that high-powered blender also comes with a high price tag. Except for a few special days a year, like Black Friday and, of course, Prime Day. And if you’re a person on the internet, you’re probably aware Prime Day is now. As in, if you’re ready to ditch your just fine blender for a truly amazing blender, it’s your time.

For Prime Day, Amazon is offering up to 35% off select Vitamix products. That includes their signature Vitamix 5200 Blender, which is currently on sale for $280 (normally $450).

Vitamix 5200 Blender, $280 (normally $450)

We’ve written extensively about what this classic Vitamix can do, but briefly: The powerful engine can purée soups and sauces, grind nuts, and tackle the most fibrous greens for silky smoothies. It can even make soup hot without a stove. Are you going to start making all your soups without a stove now? Probably not. But it’s good to know you can.

The professional-grade blender can also be used as a food processor for making hummus, pesto, and grinding coffee. Unlike many blenders, which have one speed, you have 10 to choose from, allowing you to create chunky salsas or smooth dressings. To clean it , simply fill with a bit of warm water and a few drops of soap.

If you want even more to play with, consider adding the Vitamix’s Aer Disc Container, on sale for $95 from $145, to your cart. Instead of blades, a disc allows you to quickly force air into your liquids. The high-speed, blade-free blending also helps you emulsify them. That means you can make whipped cream, sauces, and even batch cocktails with this nifty device. Like with the classic Vitamix containers, it can also be cleaned with a little bit of soapy water and blending.

Refurbished Vitamix blenders offer great value for shoppers, and they’re even cheaper for Prime Day. They are guaranteed to look and work like new and are backed by a 90-day warranty. This Explorian series blender, on sale for $181 from $270, is functionally identical to the classic Vitamix, just with a lower profile. You get the same 64-ounce container but may find it easier to fit under kitchen shelves or in cabinets.

Another refurbished Vitamix on sale, the Venturist, marked down to $288 from $450, offers more features than the classic 5200 model. A timer allows you even more precision with your blending, and a “pulse” feature mixes smoother, high-powered blending with rough chopping for things like salsa and chunky sauces. It also comes with a smaller cup for making small-batch sauces or smoothies to go.
