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.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, Powerful, Programmable And Connected As a previous owner of a 5200, I already knew how powerful the Vitamix blenders are, but what drew me to the A3500 was the versatility and usability and various accessories. As a single person, I want to be able to make smaller recipes/amounts, but I have a large extended family and need the ability to occasionally make larger amounts or for food prep meal planning. Initially, I was uninterested in the 64oz container, but have found that it can do a terrific job on a single serving smoothie-- I was shocked and amazed. I think the 20oz cups are a better fit for that purpose, but when they say the 64oz container can blend 2 cups as well as 6, they mean it. I use my blender for basic building block recipes, soups, salsas, dips, dressings, and beverages. I love the programs, they work great and mean that I can multitask in the kitchen while a program is running and that it will stop at the proper time with my input. I have also been using the Perfect Blend app and love the features and extra programs in the app. My favorite program is the cleaning cycle--add water, soap, cycle, and walk away... stupendously easy. I love the built in programmable timer! Additionally, the A3500 fixes the main annoyance that I had with the 5200--lack of a pulse button. The Pulse button (for any speed) opens up a huge world of possibilities of quick chopping and grating or simple stiring. The cups and bowls (accessories available) will allow me to better create portion controlled meal items, and the Under-the-blade scraper fixes my other 5200-annoyance the waste of thick food inaccessible under the blades! I do miss the thick recipe book that previously accompanied the purchase of a vitamix blender.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can make just about anything with this blender I bought this a few months ago and have been trying new recipes every week. I can make fresh meals and drinks within minutes. This was my best value buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first Vitamix, but not my last I bought a Vitamix because I'm a 30+ year old with the palate of an extremely finicky toddler and I struggle to consume vegetables. So I wanted to be able to make soups and sneak veggies into my fruit smoothies. I also wanted to experiment with frozen desserts. In those respects the Vitamix has been successful. The texture is amazing and phenomenal. I'm eating more vegetables than I ever have in my life. I eat vegetable soup regularly and I am even putting things like celery in my fruit smoothies and I start my day with a veggie coffee abomination that actually tastes pretty delightful. However, this machine has a couple of downfalls. 1) the lid construction being solid unlike the more flexible rubber one on my old Oster makes it difficult to get the tamper in exactly where I need it sometimes, and they're prone to leaking. When I started my biggest problem was that often what I wanted to make, it wasn't enough for the 64 ounce container. I cringed over the extra price for the 20 and 8 oz containers and blade adapter, but I use those daily so it's been worth it for me. All in all this has been my best investment in my self and I happily recommend it for anyone and everyone. Regarding the A3500 vs the other models, I can't really say, but if budget is slightly a concern and the choice is those over without adding the smaller containers, it a cheaper model and buy the smaller containers, I say go for the cheaper with the smaller containers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Blender My Vitamix blender is amazing, it's extremely easy to use and clean! I've made numerous smoothies and frozen desserts in it that have turned out great, I plan to branch out in the near future and make even more types of recipes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good - excellent blending capabilities So far only made smoothies but it blends them much better than anything else has.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best blender you will ever own! I have tried other blenders in the past (black & decker, nutribullet etc.)... but nothing compares to the Vitamix A3500. The quality of the blend is what shocked me when I made my first smoothie. It pulverizes everything (seeds, nuts, frozen fruit) into the smoothest, creamiest texture. Plus the added features of preset functions means pressing a button and walking away while the Vitamix A3500 works its magic. I cannot recommend this blender enough!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blender for multiple uses We got this Vitamix A3500 last month and we have been using it everyday. This is one of the best blenders that we had. I made nut butters, flours, green juices and hot soups, this machine handles everything like charm. Highly recommended product.

  • 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.
