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 RoyW from Great Machine with wonderful features I purchased the Vitamix about a month ago. It does more than the two other Vitamix machines that we own and are kept in our other homes. I will be upgrading those machines in the very near future.Date published: 2018-11-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Tweetsie from Best Blender Ever I purchased my Vitamix A3500 over a month ago. I can honestly say this is the best blender I have ever owned; ingredients blend evenly and smooth.Date published: 2018-11-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Manu18 from Lovin' it Still a new addition to my kitchen, but the A3500 presented itself as a real asset! highly recommend, and piece of advice : don't look at the price, it's worth itDate published: 2018-11-28Rated 4 out of 5 by R jD from Amazing blender but not good for dough I make green smoothies every day. With my old blender I couldn’t sip my smoothies at work because it would leave flecks if greens between my teeth. My vitamix blends it all into a liquid-zero flecks, seeds or pulp. My one complaint is it can’t handle a date brownie recipe I also use constantly. It smells like smoke from the thick heavy dough and goes to an error message. So I also have to keep a food processor on my counter and I really thought spending $700 would give me a machine that could do it all.

Operating sound is a bit off-putting, but I guess cannot be helped due to the power required.Date published: 2018-11-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Blending in MT from As expecrted This is our second Vitamix. The first was a hand-me-down that was on its last legs when we got it. We've been using a decent, cheap Oster blender for a few years, and I decided to splurge on my wife for her birthday. Looked at the 750 pro model, but ultimately decided on the A3500 due to the longer warranty (10 years vs. 7). Our primary use is for smoothies and frappuccino-type drinks. The Vitamix excels in texture for both. There are seldom any chunks of ice, and even the smallest seeds (blueberry, blackberry, etc.) are blended properly - no more seeds in your teeth :o) Also picked up the dry grains container, but have not used that on the new machine yet.Date published: 2018-11-25Rated 5 out of 5 by HealthyActiveLady from Brilliant Appliance We're incredibly happy with our purchase! We bought the A3500 and the 20 oz blending cups. We were considering the 750 because of the classic-buttons, but we're glad we decided on the A3500’s digital screen and self-detect accessories. In one week of having a VM, I feel we’ve increased our health and wellness. I’m amazed at how fast we can make smoothies, sorbet, and nut dips. It’s bringing life to our palette without a lot of preparation or clean up. The sound of the A3500 is what you might expect from a sophisticated powerful blender. The base is very heavy and stable. We haven’t had an issue with it moving on the counter. Cleaning the container is super easy. The 64 oz container is big and requires about a minimum of 3 cups of ingredients. For this reason, we also bought the 20 oz blending cups. The blending cups are great for making 8-18 ounce recipes, like individual smoothies and salad dressings. We didn't find it difficult to get the VM base to recognize the cup attachment. In our experience, if the VM doesn’t recognize the attachment, very slightly tighten (or loosen) the blade base to the cup. Once I got the hand-memory for how much to tighten the blade base, I had successful cup attachment connections. Understanding the logic of layering ingredients in the cups and being mindful of the amount of liquid (or juicy ingredients, which assists in blending) helps tremendously. We’ve been wanting a Vitamix for years. What an amazing experience to use it every day in our wellness routine.Date published: 2018-11-23Rated 5 out of 5 by Shull999 from Super powerful I bought my Vitamix about a month ago. I needed more veggies in my diet and I am not a fan. This machine emulsified the veggies, other than the color of veggies, I would have never known I was getting my veggies in! Thank you Vitamix.Date published: 2018-11-21
