    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it I really like my new cup but I have arthritis in my hands and have a hard time getting a grip on the very large base and tightening and loosening it without making a mess and a fair amount of pain afterwards A device to assist in this would be greatly appreciated by people with small hands and or arthritis

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blender does not recognize cups I am very frustrated with this purchase. Fortunately, Vitamix was very good and very helpful with returning the cups. The cups did not work with my blender. Vitamix sent another set. The second set worked a couple times but required quite a bit of jimmying to make them work. Then they stopped working. Blender did not recognize the cups. Frustrated because I have to use the large container to make a single smoothie. The reason I purchased this particular smart blender (self detect technology) was to be able to have both a large container and smaller smoothie containers.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it. Most the time I bought this to make a morning smoothie before work, and it works great however if you are andding any sort of leafy green, the greens stick, to the sides and do not allow rest of the ingredients to travel down to the blades. I often have to add liquid and greens blend it, shake it by hand and add the other ingredients and blend again, making it a two step process. Additionally, it often takes a few tries for the vitamix to recognize that the blade is on the base, and in a rushed morning, it can be a bit frustrating. The good thing is, that the size is great, and it makes delicious smoothies, though not as well as consistent as the normal jug. The lid works great but is not spilproof, which is fine, but something to note. It works well but I think based on the negatives, it’s a bit pricey for the product! Vitamix is awesome and I would recommend it to anyone, however, I wouldn’t recommend this kit! Yet I still use it every day!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from not worth the expense purchased the blending cups to use with my Vitamix for an alternative to the very large container that came with the unit. I've been unable to get it to work on my unit; tech support reviewed the lineup of the triangle with the clear strip on the cups but that did not help.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Small Blending Cup Starter Kit is too small for smoothies with greens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy! I’m so glad that this set was finally in stock again! It takes a little practice to line up everything (and by little I mean very little), and if you follow directions it does not disappoint. I was surprised how solid the construction of all components was so I expect we’ll be making incredible smoothies with this set for a long time!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Potential This is a second generation purchase. The blending cups are great, but Vitamix needs to work on improving the technology on the Ascent series because getting the blender to recognize the Blending cup is a frustrating experience. By the time you get it to work sometimes you just want to try something else. Other than that, no other company I know of makes a higher quality blender than Vitamix. Thanks for valuing quality so much.
