Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Blender, White
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.

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 FTFE from Love the upgrades from my 5200 I've had a 5200 unit since 2010. It's still working fine but going into semi-retirement to our place up north. Have had the A3500 for about 3 weeks now. So here is my comparison. They both seem as powerful, and can handle the same tasks I have thrown at them. A3500 Pros: 1) Love the pre-programmed options and bluetooth app. 2) Has smaller container options and I find I use it more often for smaller jobs with the 8 ounce and 20 ounce containers. 3) This unit looks much sharper on the countertop as I use it 4 to 5 times a week minimum. A3500 Cons: Nothing major but... 1) The containers takes a little more wiggling to get seated then the 5200. 2) It may take time for me to teach hubby how to use the technology since he's a switch and knob kind of guy, and I'm more of the technology guru (not that this is rocket science) 3) The A3500 does not offer a 32 ounce option (the 5200 with 32 ounce container which was my goto container for most of my usage is actually slightly shorter then the A3500 with 48 ounce low profile container ) Time will tell if the touch screen options hold up, but I don't see an issue with response time as others have mentioned. Overall the Pros greatly outweigh the minor cons and I'm very happy with this so far.Date published: 2019-10-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeimmyk from Great machine Love it love it hit all my expectations!!

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: 2019-05-26
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
