  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from 8oz Blending Bowls are finally available! These little bowls were a major factor in my decision to buy an Ascent back in Jan, and now that I have them, I'm happy. So far they have worked as good as I'd hoped they would. They are the perfect size IMO for small jobs and even crushed fresh pepper. Pros: They come with a three-year warranty The lids have a seal similar to the one on the base. The cups can stack on the base so they don't take up a lot of extra room. No Cons as of yet, other than I wish I didn't have to pay an extra $100 for them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small convenient portions I couldn't wait to get this, and anxiously waited for it to be released to the market. I got mine and absolutely love it!! I've made small portions of Almond butter with roughly just about 3/4 cup of almonds, rather than having to use 3 cups in the larger containers. I've also made strawberry sorbet without having to make a large batch without wasting the excess rather than place it in the freezer to become rock hard, and a few other things in convenient diet friendly portions.

  • Will this blade attachment work with the travel cups?

    Asked by: Alberga89
    Hi Alberga89, The Blender Bowls Starter Kit comes with its own blade base, just as the Blending (Travel) Cups Starter Kit does.

    I have 5300 Vitamix blender. Will the smaller 8 oz jar work with my blender

    I have the 20 oz. cup and blade base for the Ascent blender. Will the blade base from the 20 oz cup work with the 8 oz cup or do I need to buy a separate base for the 8 oz cup?

    Asked by: phoebef
    Hi phoebef, The blade base for the 20oz also fits the 8oz so you do not need to buy a separate blade base.
