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 stops the blender when processing is complete.

  • Five program settings: Smoothies, Hot Soups, Dips & Spreads, Frozen Desserts and Self-Cleaning: automatically adjust times and speeds for the container selected and stop the blender when done.
  • Compatible with Self-Detect containers, so you can create multiple batches with 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 towards blade, and alleviates need to scrape down the container's sides.
  • Blades are laser-cut from hardened stainless steel for ultimate precision and durability.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential Appliance for everyone We bought a refurbished Vitamix A3500 and our family loves it! We make smoothies every day. We also make pancake mix, almond butter, hot soups (really cool feature) and dressings/sauces. Our previous high powered blender was unable to make smooth vegan cheese or blend beets in a smoothie properly. In our Vitamx, you don't have that grainy feel of the beets in your mouth and our vegan cheese is not lumpy. Five star rating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powering my healthy lifestyle I bought my VitaMix as a replacement for a NutriBullet Rx. After burning out two NutriBullet’s I figured it was time to get a VitaMix. I make a green smoothie every day and swear by the habit as a way to get more energy, boost my daily nutrition, and look great. I bought a reconditioned model and applied some of the savings to extend the warranty another 3 years for a total of 8 years - what a great deal!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product and Excellent Customer Service! I ordered a Certified Reconditioned A3500 Vitamix a few months ago and couldn't be happier with the product! It is top grade in blending juices/smoothies, soups, nut name it! It was very well packaged and it looks brand new! I never would have guessed it was certified reconditioned! The best's self cleaning! The only time you have to put a little elbow grease in is when you are making nut butters as that does tend to get pretty sticky. Loving it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super power! Bought my vitamix to replace a lesser powered blender and have no regrets. It’s easy to use and easy to clean. It makes great smoothies and nut butters.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great blender I bought a refurbished blender and it blends great. My only issue is the top moves when it blends. I assume it's Because it's refurbished. Other than that it's fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful workhorse! I have made soup, frozen yogurt, and smoothies with my beautiful white Vitamix. The soup took about 2 1/2 minutes to blend and the yogurt and smoothies took 1 min or less. I am recommending Vitamix to family and friends!

  • Are any/all of the parts(i.e, the carafe, tamper, etc) new that come with a reconditioned model or are they potentially used as well? Exactly what about this unit is reconditioned?

    Asked by: Natasha
    Hi Natasha, Refurbished blenders are technically used units that have been returned to the manufacturer. The returned blenders go through a 17-step process that includes testing all of the components to ensure that they work, fixing the ones that don’t, and replacing items like the container and tamper, before re-boxing and selling as reconditioned. Blenders that were returned for serious mechanical issues, however, are tossed. The 17-Point Checklist includes the following: Blender Base Blender base exterior is free of significant scratches and chips on all four sides Four rubber feet are present and in-tact Six-foot power cord is inspected and secured properly with clips Switches are clean and operational Faceplate label is present and free of scratches Rubber centering pad is in-tact and free of significant scratches or wear Motor and Control Panel Variable Speed Dial is functional and responsive (when applicable) High/Low speeds are functional (when applicable) Pulse is functional (when applicable) Pre-Programmed settings are functional (when applicable) On/Off is functional Start/Stop is functional (when applicable) Blade Blade is less than one year old, free of rust, dull edges, and any signs of damage, or is replaced with a new part Blade assembly rotates easily with slight, even resistance Blade is sanitized in high-temperature dishwasher and placed in new container shell New container shows proper coupling and blade balance when placed on blender base New Components Every Certified Reconditioned Machine comes with a brand new cookbook package, container shell, two-part lid, and tamper Any component above that does not pass inspection is replaced with a brand new part. If a part cannot be replaced, the entire unit is recycled. Occasionally, due to Vitamix inventory levels, Vitamix may ship a new blender to a customer who has purchased a Certified Reconditioned machine.

    Does this recondition blender come just like the new one does? What is the difference on warranty between this one and a brand new one? Does it come with everything a new one does? It would be nice to save 100 if everything is legit?

    Asked by: Ashley
    Hi Ashley, The only difference is the 5 year warranty for reconditioned units vs. 10 years on the new units.

    Hello,    I wanted to ask if there is an option to extend warranty on recondition A3500 like Vitamix does? I really want to get the reconditioned A3500 but i don't like that warranty is only 5 years, since Accent series usually have 10 year warranty

    Asked by: solis5555
    Hi solis5555, We're only aware of Vitamix offering a 5 year warranty for their reconditioned blenders.

    What does it mean that it is reconditioned. Is it used ? Is there a warranty in place? Thanks

    Asked by: Sporegal
    Hi Sporegal- Certified Reconditioned doesn't necessarily mean that it was used. Returns are made for a variety of reasons. Sometimes people order on a whim and then change their minds. Or they order one model and realize that another model would better fit their needs. Some returns are sent back having never been used. Vitamix puts them through lengthy tests to ensure that they are as good as new. Vitamix also offers a 5-year warranty for non-commercial use. You should receive a card in the box where you can register your Vitamix. Vitamix will repair or replace any failed part or machine due to normal wear & tear. Enjoy!

    Is this blender working with 20oz container to go? Shall I buy a starter kit to use 20oz container or will it work as it is?
