The Vitamix S50 was previously available in the USA. Since Vitamix is completely discontinuing production of the compact S series, we advise interested customers to purchase the Wartmann Blender - offering a very attractive price/performance ratio. The Wartmann is equipped with 3 time programs, one more than on the S50.
Note: The American power grid operates at 110 volts, blenders produced for this market cannot be operated in Europe without expensive technical equipment. We therefore strongly advise against importing the Vitamix S50 yourself.
