    I got fat…so I thought it would be good to eat better and try healthy smoothies with vegetables and fruit. I dugout my old blender and found the consistency poor and seeds in my teeth. So I did a lot of research and review reading. I narrowed it down to 5 brands, then 2, then Vitamix. I was really sold on the Professional Series 750 or the new Ascent A3500. I just could not pull the trigger on a $500-$650 blender. The Ascent A2500 has the same 2.2 hp motor, a 10 year warranty, is a fraction shorter than the 750, has a clear lid, a time counter, 3 program settings, and standard controls like the 750. The 750 has been a very popular model. I love the brushed stainless…but that fraction (1/4″) keeps it from fitting easily under my cabinets. The older style with the block centering pad does not look as sleek as the new Ascent series. I like the redesigned cooling system for the Ascent series and the 3 extra years for a total of 10 years warranty. That told me Vitamix was banking on the redesign. The Ascent series comes with the 64 oz container and there are additional accessories in the works.
    The Ascent series has 4 models which all have the same motor, container, warranty, etc. The A2300 has a 10 speed dial, pulse switch, start/stop switch, and digital timer. The A2500 has the same features and adds 3 program settings for smoothies, frozen desserts, and hot soups and adds $50 to the price. The A3300 is the same price as the A2500 but loses the program settings but gains touch start/stop, touch pulse, and a programmable timer (which allows for setting a count down time). The A3500 adds 5 program touch settings and $100 to the price. No matter which one you get, I’ll bet you’ll love it. A couple of weeks after getting the A2500, I got a wild hair and decided to also get the A3500. They are both awesome and right now I’m enjoying a fantastic frozen margarita.

    I had my last vitamix for over 10 years and it was time for an upgrade. This one is awesome! No complaints!

    Update after 10 months
    What an amazing machine and a company behind it. I noticed a crack on my jug and called Vitamix. To my surprise, they simply sent me a replacement. No questions, no bickering. A very customer centric approach to ensure satisfaction. The rep also told me how much warranty I have left (9 whole years). After this experience, if Vitamix decided to double their price, I would still recommend them. Goes to show that North America can still produce fine quality products while remaining true to their values. Kudos to the entire company.

    Super awesome product. I have only used it for two weeks but it is in a category of its own. No other blenders can come close to the quality which this product offers. Expensive but worth every penny.

    We’ve had the older series of this for about 7 years, used it daily until it was finally ready for an upgrade. We choose this option again as we use the smoothie button and the frozen deserts button.

    We’ve always received excellent service from Vitamix in the past so, continuing to enjoy our blender.

    We did try the model without the preset buttons but really missed our buttons.

    New feature: It is a larger jug then before, which we like for our family smoothie time but when making for one person the ingredients splash around too much and don’t always get a smooth texture. I liked the longer jug better.

    Overall, happy about the upgrade. We always keep in on the counter as it’s used daily so, no issues with storage.

    Best blender ever! After purchasing numerous ones I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a Vitamix. Definitely worth the money, over the moon with it. Fantastic service from the seller as well. Highly recommend.

  6. Renegade: Bold As Love

    I fought long and hard to not buy a Vitamix when my wife insisted that we need it to get the most out of our green drinks. She told me that the power of the thing breaks the cell walls of plants open to make digesting the key nutrients fast and easy.

    But, it’s hard to say no to a beauty who eats right to stay a beauty, so I broke down (my wallet, not my cell structure) and bought one. Now I understand that the world is divided into two camps: Vitamix owners and the ones who think their little $99 blender is just as good.

    $99 blenders, no matter what is claimed, don’t come close to a Vitamix in any way. If you like gritty, chunky globs of things in a smoothie or a real green drink, they’re fine. But if you care about your health and nutrition, I recommend saving up long and hard and getting the real thing.

    This is my fourth Vitamix. None have broken, I just keep seeing new ones and it’s a great excuse to give the current one to a doubting relative or wayward child.

    For raw power, this is the champ. They use these in all the smoothie and juicing shops. It’s as loud as a jet engine because that’s what they use to propel the invincible blade. Run it long enough and the pure friction from the impact of blade against mortal veggies will yield hot soup or food. Cleanup is done with the machine using a self cleaning mode. If they put wheels on it you could probably drive it to work. It does everything and does it right.

    Now, the elephant in the blender. Yes, it’s a monster machine. Yes, it has a 10-year warranty. Yes, it’s a status symbol in all nations of the world except for the ones, who for national security reasons, limit horsepower on blenders. Yes, you’ll love it. But for all of that, it’s crazy expensive. Here’s the secret:

    Buy it only when it’s on sale. With my habit of giving my current ones away to various ner-do-wells, I had to choose between a new Bentley or a full-priced Vitamix. Then I learned, while being driven around in the living room section of the old Bentley and using the 89” large screen TV that hides the chauffeur, that you can often find a $500 Vitamix for $350. Then, thee fact that even the base models have the same engine and power refurbished for under $200 sometimes. So, I had an Amazon drone drop off this high-end model through the panoramic sunroof right at my feet for $150 off the regular price.

    All silliness aside, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get the health benefits of this machine. The money you’ll save on medical bills and Metamucil will result in the thing paying for itself.

    Stop wasting your money on this pretend mixers. If you want healthy concoctions, make the commitment to save up for at least a base model Vitamix.

    Generally speaking, I like my new Vitamix. I spent a lot of time researching which blender to buy because of the high price. I did not take into consideration that the 64 oz container that comes with this model is too big for many blending jobs. Because it’s so wide at the bottom, many recipes can’t be successfully blended – the contents end up splashed on the sides and under the blades of the 64 oz container leaving those powerful Vitamix blades spinning helplessly in the air. Sauces and nut butters don’t work at all and single-serving smoothies and frozen desserts work only if you add extra ingredients and scrape down the sides frequently (making the pre-programmed settings worthless). Several times I had to dump everything out of my new Vitamix and finish the job with my $59 immersion blender.

    In the end, I spent the extra $150 to buy the 48 oz container (the even-smaller Ascent series containers looked interesting but are poorly reviewed). Everything works much better in the smaller container so I’m happily blending now with the 64 oz. container taking up space at the back of my cupboard.

    In the end, I feel very manipulated by having had to spend another $150 for good results, but I guess I have to say “well played Vitamix, well played”.

    Honestly… I love this blender. My toddlers have consumed more spinach in the last week than they probably have in their lifetime 😄the only issue was that sometimes it doesn’t start. I’m not sure if it is a power issue; but for a while i thought I may have had to return it…recently though it’s been working like a charm 🙂
    Overall… very happy!

    So I thought long and hard about splurging on a Vita Mix. I thought about it for years! I can’t believe that now that I took the leap, I miss my Nutri-Bullet! It was so simple and easy to use for smoothies as well as making dressings/sauces etc. The very large container does not allow for making one serving of a smoothie or small portions of dressings or sauces. So, after spending a fortune on this blender I ended up spending another $115. on a 48 oz. container. And guess what, it is still too big to make small servings! So now here I am looking at possibly spending yet another $120. on a smaller smoothie cup and blade. To add to that, the reviews are terrible of the $120. smoothie cups, apparently they don’t work very well! What to do now that I’m already out over $500. and I still haven’t found a way to make it work for me! Big bummer!
