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 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 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.
  • Also includes Simply Blending, a full-color recipe book from the Vitamix culinary team.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my vegan lifestyle! I love my vitmix! I use it 1-3 times a day! I didn’t think I was a smoothie person, but it makes the smoothest, most delicious smoothies so I make one every morning now! I use it to make cashew sour cream and cream cheese often. Creamiest hummus I’ve ever made. Best tomato soup- I threw 2 raw carrots cut in half in there and it came out creamy, hot, and ready to eat! I use it to pulse cauliflower, walnuts, and mushrooms together to make vegan tacos. I made peanut butter, but it made an awful sound and I had a hard time blending it, even when I followed exactly what the vitamix recipe book said. I added extra oil to try to help. It turned out fine and tasted good, but wasn’t an easy process and I was afraid I actually broke the vitmix while making the peanut butter. The next few times I used it, things weren’t chopped up and as smooth as before (like celery in my smoothie) but it seems to be fine now and came with a guarantee so I’m not worried! amazing product that allows me to make my own versions of dairy free foods that I can’t find in the store!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I final got my Vitamix blender after wanting one for years and it did not disappoint. I wasn't sure if I would like the automatic settings but they function perfectly. No more unblended chunks in my smoothie.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brought tears... I surprised my wife with an "I love you" A3500 as a gift. I purchased from the website and was able to take advantage of the color selection. I selected the red one, because it looked awesome, which it is! Once my wife opened the present, tears started to stream... tears of joy. I was reluctant to purchase, just because of cost, but glad I did! Smoothies, recipes and even pecan butter is made with less time that previous blenders and tastes delicious! I'm extremely happy with this gift. We have yet to utilize all the features associated with this model, but it's worth it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from They LOVE LOVE LOVE It! I bought this as a gift for my daughter as she wanted to prepare healthy meals for her baby. She is so thrilled with this she is coming up with new recipes and tells me how much my grandbaby loves the fresh fruits and vegies she prepares. Afterall, that is all a grandma can ask! As my daughter owns a business and has an 8 month old I am answering on her behalf as she is always on the run. These are all her thoughts though as she tells me how much she is enjoying her Vitamix all the time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I never knew I got the A3500 for the wife for Christmas and never knew how good a blender could be. We replaced two blenders with this one and I never go back. I love how moth the smoothies can be, the cleaning feature and the pre preprogrammed buttons. I’m so happy with this investment and look forward to making a lot more delicious concoctions.
