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 5 out of 5 by from Better than I'd hoped! I hoped it would live up to its reputation. In fact, it exceeded it! Easy to use, easy to clean, and blends the most difficult foods easily. My husband even likes using it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I've been a Vitamix user for over 10 years. Great blenders that are built to last!! I've been wanting to upgrade from our original model that was still working great, but I wanted all.the.things! I absolutely love the smart technology and auto shut off!! My kids have been blending their own smoothies from age 8/9. We use our smoothie feature every morning. I splurged and purchased the single serving accessories so my teenager can make her favorite breakfast smoothie without having to use the big blender. I highly recommend the newest model!! Worth every cent!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Blender In the Galaxy, I bought my Mighty Vitamix A3500 last month. It was purchased as a heath investment. It is now my entertainment/hobby to blend creative smoothies. Lots of fun, and of course the best smoothies this side of Andromeda! I got the candy apple red version. There are lots of reviews discussing features... All I need to say is I love my blender. Buy a Vitamix..... Keep them is business for the benefit of future generations in the Galaxy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my Professional Series 750 I had a Professional Series 750 for about 4 years and loved it. I am an IT professional and when I looked at the A3500 I liked the technical capabilities of it so I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did! I love how it adjusts itself with the Self-Detect Containers. I pair it with my Tablet (Android) and the Vitamix Perfect Blend App and it greatly expands the recipes that are at my finger tips. In fact I liked it so much I bought the Perfect Blend Smart Scale and Recipe App and its so simple to add ingredients to the container in the right amounts. It did take a little getting used to the touch controls (opposed to the controls on the 750) but it didn't take long to get used to them. If you like tech, along with a premium blender, than the A3500 is the one to chose.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Phenomenal machine with minor complaint We purchased the A3500 a few months ago and upgraded from the basic Costco model that met all of our needs for the past seven years. We decided to upgrade due to the numerous programmable settings and also because my mother wanted one and our old one had all the features she would need. My only complaint with this is that food prep for two people is a little overkill in the wide 64 oz container. A friend of ours also has the A3500, but he purchased the 48 oz container after reading about the benefits of using this one for two people. I'd really like to purchase the 48 oz container to have it work a little better for the two of us, but the additional purchase price on top of the A3500 price seems a little steep. I wish that there would be an option to select which container you'd like when purchasing your base. Again, this is a minor complaint and this is a phenomenal machine that has better enhanced our time in the kitchen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment We bought our A3500 to replace our original Vitamixer. The first one lasted approx 30 years. We still have it but it freezes up. If our A3500 lasts like original did our daughter will inherit it!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I revived my Vitamix a month a go. It has done a great job with everything I have asked it to do. You could not ask for a better blender.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase I recently purchased a Vitamix 3500 and have enjoyed the smoothies. The machine works great, but is just a bit too loud. I am looking forward to exploring other recipes as we move into the colder winter months. I do like the almond milk recipe - so great I can make it now myself with organic raw almonds. I would recommend this machine.

  • Can you make one serving of Bulletproof coffee, matcha or turmeric latte in the large 64 oz container ... or is it too large to properly blend? Would the 48 oz work better?

    Asked by: Dana18
    Hi Dana18, User manual does not specify minimum amount to use in a 64oz container.

    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.
