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 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 Simply Blending hardcover, full-color recipe book from 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 4 out of 5 by from Love the settings!! We purchased 2 months ago. It took some time to receive and I had to call to have them send. Between my husband and I we use it 2-3 times a day. We mainly make smoothies and soup (such a great feature!). I want to say that we absolutely love this purchase. We splurged but we’re replacing a different brand of blender that I hid purchased less than a year ago. We love how the company stands behind their products and loved the warranty. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is bc I do have to run it a few times to grind up my flaxseed and a few other items- which tends to make my smoothie more watery. It’s also much louder than I had anticipated. It’s fun to come up with creations and I love the recipe book that came with it. All in All we are satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicd new look, great features! My Mom had a vitamix and we used it constantly. So when I got my own place getting one was a must. I love the look of this model and it’s new touch features. Including showing you how long you have left when you use them. I got it in black.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features! I bought my Vitamix last month after I purchased one to give as a wedding present; from the couple's registry. The recipients were over the moon when they opened their gift! They couldn't stop raving, so I read more about this blender and I thought this would be great for me too! After a month of usage, I'm glad I upgraded to the Vitamix!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing machine! Superpowerful! This blender is truly perfect for my needs--it's super powerful so one can make delicious juices and smoothies with ingredients like beets, pineapple, etc. The way it's programmed makes it easy to make outstanding juice taste and texture. The cleanup is super easy so we use it almost every day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought my vitamix about 6 weeks ago. Great performance. Love that it can make hot soup. I use it every morning to make my husband a smoothie.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A3500 is brilliant! After years on the fence, I finally bought a Vitamix (the Ascent 3500) last week and couldn’t be more thrilled! Don’t listen to the negative reviews. Since purchasing this, I’ve made smoothies, soup, pesto, hummus and sorbet (I’m on a blending kick!) and my A3500 handles everything easily. Contrary to other reviews, I think the jar is great (I have no issues when it comes to pouring or making a big enough batch to get the machine going, even when I’m making a smoothie for 1). I love the presets on the 3500 and the touchscreen. It’s so intuitive and perfectly responsive (no delay but not so sensitive that I’ll accidentally turn it too high + there is no issue using the buttons if my hands are wet). It isn’t ridiculously loud and I can easily carry on a conversation without raising my voice on settings 1-6. I love that the touch buttons can be wiped down easily too (no nobs/switches means easy cleaning). It’s only been a week, and my family is already eating cleaner and we’re reducing our food waste. (I blended up some romaine, celery and carrots that I needed to use in my morning smoothie a couple hours ago.) I’m not a gadget or techie person, but I will never be able to live without a Vitamix again! Can’t recommend enough!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed!!! This blending is everything you will need for atleast a decade, why do I say that? It's covered by Vitamix for 10 years! This product has been used almost on the daily and very easy to clean with its clean mode feature. Also, we have a newborn and I have already started practicing making purees for the little one. So far this blender is sleek looking and performs to standards. Glad I own one, and hopefully if your reading this that you will purchase one for yourself. Absoultely amazing!
