Easy, hassle-free returns online and in-store for eligible items.Learn More
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 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.
- 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fateema21 from One of the best by far I got my Vitamix Blender over the thanksgiving holidays, and I am so glad I did. It is everything I was expecting and more.Date published: 2020-01-07Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob100 from 2nd Vitamix! So much more than a blender. Programmable features a time saver.Date published: 2020-01-06Rated 5 out of 5 by SandyApril from Amazing machine The vitamix is beautiful and makes the best smoothies you could possibly imagine. The soup function is crazy awesome. And I even made peppermint hot chocolate with a candy cane! No stovetop required. Seriously. It’s worth the purchase price. And the 22 day wait for it to come in the mail. That was unacceptable. Since it has arrived, it’s made life easier.Date published: 2020-01-06Rated 4 out of 5 by dgmmom from love the timer feature Have owned my vitamix for about 2 months now and really like. Works great. The copper colour is nice. The cleaning feature is convenient. My only issue is the measurements. They are small and very very hard to see. Thinking there should be something that could be done regarding that. I have taken a marker and marked where my smoothies should be filled to. Other than that one issue Love it!Date published: 2020-01-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Cat3636 from THE BEST I bought the Vitamix A3500 2 months ago and have never been happier. I just got the scale for xmas to go with it (I highly recommend getting it so you can easily measure all of the ingredients using the app). I had the Ninja for years and loved it but the Vitamix blends so much better! The soups I make, the smoothies, and almond butter are all smooth and well blended (no chunks or little bits of food are left out). I have even used it to blend a sweet potato and rice flour to make sweet potato gnocchi. This is the best investment in a kitchen appliance I have ever made. The bluetooth technology connects to the phone app and the scale, telling me when I have added enough spinach or chicken to the blender for a particular soup recipe.Date published: 2020-01-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Cadette from No more wasted food I've been toying with the idea of a Vitamix for the past year and finally bit the bullet and got one for the house as a holiday treat. WOW! Silky smoothies and a TOTALLY CLEAN container in under 5 minutes. I'm finding bits of produce to toss in and avoid wasting. So far I've made tomato soup, whipped cream, roasted tomato salsa, and a smoothie every day. In love!Date published: 2020-01-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Antonio718 from The best cost more but it is outstand I have been researching blenders for a year, reading reviews and looking at sale prices a friend purchased the A3500 gave it fantastic review for smoothies and blending etc. I thought the price was ridiculous over inflated. I waited until it went on sale for Black Friday and it was a very reasonable I have been using it daily for smoothies, mixing and soups it does exactly what it suppose to with the built in cleaning it is effortless. Great blender, the motor is loud but expect it to be since the motor is very powerful what do you expect. This is a great blender worth the sale price, to buy it outright is too costly Wait until it goes on sale, this will last for years.Date published: 2019-12-30Rated 2 out of 5 by Steph5007 from Too weak, very disappointed We bought a Vitamix because we’ve heard many good reviews, and with the price they charge we thought it must be good. But we were very disappointed. It only worked well if we were blending something soft. However, when we try to blend frozen fruit, like pineapple, or blueberries, even with other liquids and other soft ingredients, the blade would get stuck and stop, and the machine shuts off and we get an error. The error is from the motor overheating and we have to wait like 45 minutes to use it again. So we get out our old Oster, which was ten times cheaper, and never binds up.Date published: 2019-12-29
Can I juice things with this?Hi Kalemar, A blender cannot juice. A blender blends all ingredients together. A juicer separates juice from the pulp.Date published: 2020-01-13
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?Hi Dana18, User manual does not specify minimum amount to use in a 64oz container.Date published: 2019-11-15
What is the difference between this and the 750 model?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.Date published: 2019-06-08
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.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.Date published: 2019-03-03
