I went to Costco earlier and the Vitamix man had a new Vitamix to demo. The 6300. It's more like a Blendtec in that you can make a selection and walk away because it's pre-timed. There's also a pulse button. It cost 500 dollars, which is about 100 more than the old 5200 model. They also have a new recipe book. Here's a picture of the new model.

This is an old machine. Been on the market for a while. Check Chefs Catalog and Williams and Sonoma. They have had this model for a while.

Ok. The demo guy said it was new and it was the first time he was demo'ing it. That's all I know.

While both the Chef's Catalog and Williams-Sonoma have machines that look like this, they aren't identified as the 6200. Are they the same machine with different model numbers. Perhaps but we really can't tell for certain. If anyone wants to know for sure, the best way to find out is to e-mail Vitamix giving them the difference model numbers and asking what the difference between the machines are.

It's also possible that this is a new machine for reps that go around demo-ing it. They may not have had access to the 6200 or one that looked like what W-S and Chef's Catalog sells.

Yes, 6300 is a new machine, but it is the same as professional 500. I e-mail the vitamix sales girl and this is what she answered. It is a good chance to buy 5200. I went to BJ's and Costco. 5200 is $429 in Bj's(westbury) while $379 in Costco(long island city).
