  • Rated 3 out of 5 by from Collecting dust I bought it excited to use it but I’m a bit underwhelmed. The recipes in the book and on the site are very limited. I guess I need some real inspiration because right now it’s collecting dust.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Container, Poor Interfacing I have used this container multiple times now, and here are my thoughts: The good: It makes the easiest whipped cream, although you may need to turn your blender to setting 5-6 or for approximately 2 cups of cream. Hollandaise is extremely easy and turns out pretty well. And if you like tons of fruit chunks/pulp in your lemonade, it’s great (conversely, if you don’t, you want to use a different method). I will try to update this after trying mayonnaise and meringue. I remain optimistic about these two possibilities. The bad: 1.The self clean program doesn’t work with the Ascent blenders. It says it’s not allowed with that container. 2. Also, there are absolutely no recipes or interfacing between the app and this container. In fact, the app thinks it’s the 48 oz. dry container, and won’t send any recipes to it. In addition, there are very few recipes (10, if I’m not mistaken) that come with this container. Vitamix will tell you that they want you to come up with your own recipes, which is ridiculous, considering the fact that this doesn’t operate like a usual blender, and would require quite a bit of experimentation/wasted ingredients. A good example of this is that it would have taken many failed attempts at whipped cream before I figured out that I needed to only set the speed to 5. I needed a recipe to take the guesswork out of that (which I luckily found in a QVC demonstration). Turning the blender all the way to 10 may work with fruit added to the whipped cream, but with the cream by itself, it splatters everywhere, and the top portion remains un-whipped, while the bottom potion starts to turn to butter. Overall: With everything the way it is now, regarding the app interfacing and programs available with the Ascent, I would never buy this again. I’m pretty sure that I can make just as good of whipped cream, mayonnaise, and hollandaise sauce with the standard blending container.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Plain Panna Cotta is great with this, but not Blackberry Panna Cotta. I prefer a smooth panna cotta and did not like the seeds in this version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic New Addition I bought it to make a high protein desert called Protein Fluff. It cuts down on the time making this low fat recipe.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy snd impressive results I am happy with my Aer Disc. I use it very often - primarily for whipped foam for coffee, mayo, and hollandaise sauces. However, the included recipe book is pretty useless so I must go online for recipes, I cannot make large batches of anything - best amount of skim milk for best foaming is only 1 cup, and more user “best practice“ tips would be so great.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is ok, but nothing really special I received the Aer Disc Container as a birthday gift and couldn't wait to try out some of the recipes that I had seen online. I was surprised when I found whipping cream to actually be more difficult than using the wet blade as the disc doeasn't move the cream around after a certain point, but before the cream is completely whipped. I do like the hot chocolate that it produced but that is something I can do in the wet blad as well. IDK, I will try a few more things and decide whether this is really a must have or just an extra "thing" I need to find a place to store.
