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. This set includes Williams-Sonoma's The Perfect Blending Cookbook, with more than 30 recipes for using your blender to prepare any meal of the day, from breakfast to dinner, snacks to desserts.
- 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 Williams Sonoma: The Perfect Blending Cookbook, with more than 30 recipes for dips, smoothies, sauces and soups as well as creative ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Damaris Rojas from Vitamix power I brought the Vitamix as a gift for my wife's birthday. All I can say is that it is everything she wanted it to be and more. I never seen my wife so happy and excited over a kitchen appliances. I am glad that I got her one.Date published: 2019-05-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Adrianh from Best investment to ones health Hooked on the ease and power that this blender delivers... can’t wait to try new exciting recipes. I also bought the Dry and Aer containers to be able to do just about anything I would need to do in the kitchen. Truly am enjoying the experimenting of making cold beverages and slushes for kids. This machine really takes the reins on your health and allows you to be healthy again. I am a believer that this was one of my smarter investments for my families health and future.Date published: 2019-05-06Rated 5 out of 5 by MeSickRN from What fun! I've had my Vitamix for over a month and have had so much fun with it. Key lime ice cream, frappes, smoothies. Just love it. Who would imagine a smoothie with avocado and spinach would actually taste delicious? It does! I love this product.Date published: 2019-05-02Rated 4 out of 5 by Tiffany MacDonald from Love it but it should include the smaller cup for I love it but it's impossible to make smaller portions (single or double salad dressing for example) without it spraying up and not at all blending and for the price it should really include a smaller cup blender to get the most of what vitamix claims it can do. Having to buy another piece seems like a money grab in my opinion.Date published: 2019-04-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Jiggar1002 from Great Features! I bought the Vitamix machine ad an update from my old machine and I’m so glad I did. I use the Vitamix everyday on smoothies, soups and more.Date published: 2019-04-23Rated 5 out of 5 by frances25 from I love it I bought my Vitamix about a month or 2 ago now and I am loving it more every day.Date published: 2019-04-10Rated 5 out of 5 by Mae Brown from Best kitchen appliance ever! My husband bought my vitamix for me about a month ago I have used it almost on a daily basis I absolutely love love love itDate published: 2019-04-06Rated 4 out of 5 by Bronwyn 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.Date published: 2019-04-03
