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 3 out of 5 by Dddavid from Container needs better markings I have only had the blender a week. And the blender itself so far seems to be everything that I expected. My reason for the lower rating is for the container. Which for the most part seems quite nice, my problem is with the VERY inadequate volume markings. I will admit to being over 50, and my eyesight is not the greatest, but it is normal for someone my age and I usually manage just fine, but with the numbers being so very tiny, and not painted so therefore no contrast, and with varying items in the container behind them, they are nearly impossible to see. The reason this upsets me so very much is because there really is no excuse for it. They were able to put the brand name on the container lid in an easily readable large font, they should have been able to do the same for the cup, ounce, liter numbers. Also, it would be nice if the 1/4 cup lines were different than the cup lines to make it additionally easier to distinguish. I can understand why they may have wanted to avoid painting the lines and numbers, worrying that over time, if people put the container in the dishwasher, that they would begin to fade, but if the paint was applied over raised numbers/lines, after the paint faded you would be left with nothing worse than what I am starting with now, and you would always have the option to buy a new container. As it is, I've just bought an extremely expensive blender, and I am already trying to figure out if I can take fingernail polish and put it on the numbers so they are readable. And for the record, my husband HATES the container for the same reason, and said he thinks I should return it because of that.Date published: 2019-10-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Edward666 from Best Blender Ever People won't get it until you own it. The blender is awesome and you can definitely tell the difference. People all the time say i have an oyster, ninja etc. It works fine. Until they try a vitamix or wonder why they can't get the same results. Also i am forgetting how wasy it is to clean and maintain. The 10 year warranty is just another bonus.Date published: 2019-09-27Rated 1 out of 5 by Jean from poor customer service it's been less than a year and getting error message - A3500. they want me to send in for a repair and meanwhile have to do without it. i use it daily and thought they would just replace it especially when it's their software issues. now I have to go and find the right box for it. very inconvenient.Date published: 2019-09-24Rated 5 out of 5 by NicoG from Best in class We have had our vitamix A3500 for about a month now and we love it. So easy to use and clean. In just one minute most of our favourites are done.Date published: 2019-09-24Rated 4 out of 5 by Nissa from Such an improvement from my Sears Blender This is a great vitamix! I notice it sometimes has an 'electrical' smell at the beginning of the use or if it is on for a long time, but it works great. I notice it blends things much faster than my other and without the need of the stick! I find it works better with more things in it than a small smoothie, but overall very happyDate published: 2019-09-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Health2share from Most Important Kitchen Appliances My family had a Vitamix when I was a young girl. I have used other blenders and nothing comes close to the Vitamix Blender. I use mine easily 3 times a day. And I use it for soooooo much more than smoothies. Best blender for my vegan cheeses, sauces, chutneys, puddings, dressings, mayonnaise and all my many inventions! No other blender needed ever!Date published: 2019-09-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Donna Kaye from Most AMAZING blender I've ever used. I bought this machine in lieu of a Ninja on the urging of my boyfriend. When he mentioned it to me, I'd never heard of Vitamix. I'm so glad he told me about it before I messed up and bought the Ninja...I'm so amazed by what this machine can do, it's beyond words. I can't wait to explore more recipes and make healthy meals for my family.Date published: 2019-09-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick12234 from Love This! Very efficient and easy to use. This product has made life easy.Date published: 2019-09-14
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
