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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kay4401 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!Date published: 2019-09-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Cherbo 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.Date published: 2019-09-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Suranga from I am in love It’s been a month to my relationships with the Vitamix 3500 & everyday I fall in love with it all over again.it is my first Vitamix & a gift from my hubby. I use it everyday more than once & hopefully the connection we have gonna lasts long because it’s love at first sight.Date published: 2019-08-31Rated 5 out of 5 by George Solo 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.Date published: 2019-08-30Rated 5 out of 5 by JoannaF from True Believer! I kept telling myself no, you can survive with your standard blender to make breakfast smoothies, you don't NEED a Vitamix. Then I actually looked into what all a Vitamix can do...my standard blender went into the donations box. I'm sold! The soups are my favorite, quick weeknight meal. Why didn't I do this sooner?!Date published: 2019-08-25Rated 5 out of 5 by Wisconsin Mom from Mommy review This is my 3rd, and hopefully, last blender because it's much more than a blender. It's got a lot of versatility. The only weakness is that when it comes to mixing dough, it has a narrow base and so I find that my Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer with the big bowl does better. The motor is powerful and it can easily create smoothies and soups.Date published: 2019-08-25Rated 5 out of 5 by JohnSz from Should’ve bought this years ago I’ve owned the A3500 Vitamix for a couple of months now. I’ve made several smoothies and some ice cream with it and it tackles these things beautifully. The Smoothies are indeed smooth and well mixed, the ice cream I made was using frozen bananas some peanut butter and a little almond milk and turned out smooth and fantastic. I’ve a long way to go before I do more recipes but this blender has definitely proved to be the best I’ve ever owned, I only wish I had purchased one of these sooner.Date published: 2019-08-13Rated 5 out of 5 by Phyllis Palmer from A Truly Great Kitchen Appliance I bought this as a surprise for my beloved bride of 38 years as a surprise. She loves it! The very first time she used it to make hummus she was sold. After watching a few videos of the bluetooth features associated with the digital scale and the phone app she is even more in love with it...and me!!Date published: 2019-08-12
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
