Summary

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 container selected and stop blender when done.
  • Compatible with Self-Detect containers, so you can create multiple batches from the same machine – then store, serve or transport.
  • Programmable Timer shows blend time countdown and can be set to automatically stop when processing is complete.
  • Tamper presses thick or frozen mixtures toward blades, 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.
  • Machine's sleek touchscreen display is easy to use – and even easier to wipe clean.
  • Includes Simply Blending, a full-color, hardcover recipe book from the Vitamix culinary team.

Green Goddess Dressing Recipe

In a Vitamix blender, combine the chives, parsley, tarragon, basil, anchovies, shallot, lemon juice, mayonnaise and buttermilk. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth, about 1 minute.

Pour the dressing into a liquid measuring cup and season with salt. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 days before using. Makes about 1 1/2 cups (12 fl. oz./375 ml).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Blender So far this blender has performed well. It is a well designed machine, and has a lot of little design features in the jug to allow it to blend smoothly, prevent the lid from getting blown off or leaking, etc. Even the base is protected from major disasters. It's build quality is very good. It is also powerful, but very noisy when running at full speed. The tamper guard is a bit too wide in diameter which makes getting the tamper into the corners of the jug more difficult than we would like. The tamper guard could probably be trimmed down a bit. Removing contents from the jug and the blade can be very awkward due to all the different shapes inside the jug that help with blending. Vitamix does sell a scraper for this, but we have not purchased it at this time. It is quite easy to clean however. The jug, while low profile, still has some disadvantages. The machine with the jug in place is still quite tall, and this model's standard low profile jug cannot effectively make small batches of 28 oz or less, when the tamper is required. I will not comment on this blender's durability or longevity, as we have not owned it long enough. But in summary this is a good product, with few annoyances.

  • What is the difference between this and the 750 model?

    Asked by: LWCF
    Hi LWCF, Although both models have 5 program settings for smoothies, hot soups, frozen desserts, dips & spreads and self cleaning, the Ascent model's settings are smart in that it automatically detects the size of the container in use, so foods are perfectly blended according to volume and consistency. Additionally, this model's built-in programmable timer can be set to stop the blender when processing is complete, so you don't have to monitor its progress. Lastly, one of the biggest differences is that is has a 10-year full warranty compared to the 750's 7-year warranty.

    How is the sound on this machine? I have a 5200, and I am interested in something quieter if possible but with the same power.

    Asked by: Blueberry Lady
    Hi Blueberry Lady, The die cast metal shell and construction of the new base on the Ascent blender makes the sound more pleasant than the 5200. In another words, it’s a different type of sound but not necessarily quieter.
