  1. Hi Bainkel, Thanks for the question. The Wet Container would be best for chopping vegetables like onions. I hope this helps!

  2. Hi Olga,
    If you're wanting to chop onions, they should be on low speed – around 2-3. If you're chopping cheese, bread crumbs, coleslaw it needs to be on high speed.
    I hope this helps! Have a great day.

  3. I just got a vitamix and used it for dry chopping. I had trouble getting everything out of the jar. I used a wooden spoon but it was not easy. Any tricks or tips?

  4. Awesome ! I am so in love with your channel, hahah. I think when I'll have my Vitamix (hopefully soon :p) I will use dry chopping more… I don't know why, but with this wet chopping technique I have this feeling that lots of the nutrients would go in the water and then be wasted… Like how I prefer to steam instead of boiling so that the nutrients don't end up in the boiling water that you throw away

  5. Hi everyone. Should I get a reconditioned 5200 with a five year warranty or a new 5300 with a seven year warranty? Seems like the answer should be obvious but I'm unclear about some of the features and which has which, like variable speed control. Can I chop vegetables in both? Grind grains in both? Thanks.
