@Paul They had wooden tampers with the stainless versions. I had to make myself one because the plastic one I had disappeared. Wasn't very hard to do.
3 weeks, 2 days ago on Quick Action: Ask Vita-Mix to bring back the stainless steel blender pitcher!
Great idea. I had a stainless VitaMix from 1982 until 2006. If they are willing to bring back the stainless containers, I REALLY want them to NOT use sleeve bearings at the bottom of the container. That was a really weak point for that design. The other weak spots were the handle and the gasket between the lid and the container that had to be replaced with some regularity. Those stainless models also had a very powerful reversing motor, unlike the models with the plastic containers. While it's kind of nice to watch what's going on in the container while it's processing, I do not like the plastic vessel that I now have.
I really don't want to buy another VitaMix but would if they brought back the stainless setup. Plastic bites!
