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 Great Product I'm very pleased with my vitamix. I keep it on the counter and use it almost daily. I can't wait until winter to try some "hot" soups!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamix at its best I bought my vitamix in August. It’s a new model and I love it and how easy it works. It’s so much easier and quieter than my older model.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Excellent Product I owned the Classic Professional Series 750 blender which I've had for 7 years. I decided to upgrade to the latest Ascent series A3500 and am so impressed with the new features. I use lots of frozen fruit in my smoothies and prefer a well blended result. Therefore I don't use the pre-programmed smoothie option because it doesn't blend long enough for my taste. Vitamix products provide the most consistent results of any product I've ever tried which is why I'll never purchase any other blender.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I Understand Bought my new Vitamix A3500 at the Minnesota State Fair in August 2019. Love it! Nothing else I've tried in the past compares to it. I make smoothies on a daily basis, and I wore out a couple of less expensive blenders before this. Previous blenders never really seemed to fully blend all the things I put it them, especially blackberry seeds. My daily smoothies have plenty of blackberries in them. The Vitamix handles everything I put in it with ease though. Amazing product! Very, very happy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is like a new toy! I have wanted a Vitamix for a long time and finally decided to get one. I can't say enough good things about it. It does take time to get used to it and not be afraid of it taking off like a rocket in your kitchen! Every time you use it, you gain more confidence. I love it. Gone are my blender and Bullet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands Down The Best Blender I use my A3500 every single day to make smoothies. It produces a perfect consistency of frozen fruit and vegetables. After years of use, it still works like the first day. It is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

  • 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.
