The blades of both mixers feature the same laser cutting and hammer mill technology for smooth, consistent mixing. However, the blade size on the Vitamix 5200 is 3 inches and on the Vitamix 5300 the blade size is 4 inches. The additional 1 inch blades of the Vitamix 5300 provide enough power to chop ingredients and blend them better, as they can cover a larger mixing space than the Vitamix 5200.


The Vitamix 5200 has an advanced 2 HP motor powerful enough to crush and mix ingredients. But since the Vitamix 5300 is the successor to the 5200 and the latest in the C series, it has a slightly more powerful 2.2 hp engine than the 5200.


The container of the two blenders is 64 oz. However, there are some minor changes to their design. The Vitamix 5200 container is large, thick and elegant. This allows you to throw the ingredients directly onto the blades for better mixing. In contrast, the Vitamix 5300 has a wide and wide container, which allows you to prepare large amounts of recipes for the whole family.


The Vitamix 5200 is cheaper than its successor Vitamix 5300. The Vitamix 5300 Classic Blender is $ 479 and the Vitamix 5200 blender is $ 399. The price difference in the two is considerable.
