The powerhouse of the Vitamix blender family, the A3500 blender is intelligently designed inside and out. The machine offers five smart program settings that automatically detect the size of the container in use, so foods are perfectly blended according to volume and consistency. A built-in programmable timer can be set to stop the blender when processing is complete, so you don't have to monitor its progress.
- Five program settings—Smoothies, Hot Soups, Dips & Spreads, Frozen Desserts and Self-Cleaning—automatically adjust times and speeds for the container selected and stop the blender when done.
- Compatible with Self-Detect containers, so you can create multiple batches from the same machine—then store, serve, or transport (available Spring 2017).
- Programmable Timer shows blend time countdown and can be set to automatically stop when processing is complete.
- Tamper presses thick or frozen mixtures towards blade, so you never have to stop to scrape sides down.
- Blades are laser-cut from hardened stainless steel for the ultimate precision and durability.
- Container designed to rotate ingredients back to blades for faster, more efficient processing.
- The machine's sleek touchscreen display is easy to use – and even easier to wipe clean.
- Includes Simply Blending hardcover, full-color recipe book from Vitamix culinary team.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama189 from Love it! My vitamix is well past the 10 year mark. I use it, honestly, every day. From morning making a collagen latte to blending soups for dinner. It's an amazing product. I know it's expensive but mine is still going strong even after over 10 years! Id love the new touch screen because of my hands but I have no reason to invest in a new one when my old one works so perfectly!Date published: 2018-10-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanji from Fast and easy to clean I have had my Vitamix for a month and love it. Mostly make smoothies and it’s a great size and super easy to work and I absolutely love the self clean. My daughter uses it and she loves it too!!Date published: 2018-10-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Tommyknows from Absolutely perfect! I’ve had my Vitamix a few months now. It never fails to amaze me. The perfect texture smoothies. Great soups. It really does everything they say, and more. With only a push of a button it’s so easy to use. Recommend highly!!!!!Date published: 2018-10-11Rated 3 out of 5 by afrank from Kind of disappointed I purchased this blender a couple months ago with very high hopes! However, I have been quite disappointed. I am not sure if the blender I received was defective but my blender leaks often despite not filling the blender to the very top. I always check to make sure the that top is securely on but I still have this problem. Also the tamper does not help as much as expected when making things like "ice-cream" from frozen bananas. I find myself continuously taking the top off to move the contents around which sort of defeats the purpose. I never had any of these issues using the Blendtec and really believed I was getting an upgrade. I no longer believe that is the case. Despite all of the positive reviews I read, this product does not fully live up to the hype.Date published: 2018-10-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Rstp from Great investment! Getting a lot of use from our Vitamin A3500. Its a worthy investment if you're into making your own sauces, milk, butter, smoothies, soup etc. We use it almost every day and half the day on Sundays when we make our Almond Milk, Various Purees, and Hummus!Date published: 2018-10-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Spicy from Very good blender than other competitors Better than Blendtec, A3500 can be one of good choices you can. you can subtly adjust blender speed as you want, plus pre-programmed modes are quite good for me. It's handy to clean and make smoothies:)Date published: 2018-09-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Vane from Great Features We got our vitamix a month ago, and I wish we could have afford it sooner. My parents have had theirs for over 10 years and they've never had to sharpen or exchange their blade. Its a great machine! For the blender we got, I love the already programmed settings, which makes it easy for our smothies and ice creams. The self cleaning setting it also great, simple and easy to use. You will not regreat your purchase.Date published: 2018-09-20Rated 5 out of 5 by wsitester1 from This blender blends anything! This is a super powerful blender - it blends basically anything I've thrown at it. The only downside is that it is really loud.Date published: 2018-09-18
