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 Whisptil from Wonderful performance I have wanted a vitamix for many years. I'm very happy with my vitamix. It is everything that is promised.Date published: 2019-06-23Rated 5 out of 5 by RevSue from So glad I got it! My husband gave me my reconditioned Vitamix for my birthday (I picked it out and sent him the webpage). I am making smoothies for breakfast about 5 days / week & it’s better than my old blender and easier to clean. I’ve also made delicious hummus, which I love, and plan to make soups in the fall and winter. I love that it cleans itself with the wash setting, though the rinsing may use more water than hand-washing. I’m not sure I like the new lid as well as the rubber lid on my daughter’s Vitamix. I feel like I lose too much of what I make when it splatters into the lid on automatic settings. overall, I am very happy and look forward to trying new things with it!Date published: 2019-06-22Rated 5 out of 5 by bgrant3406 from Wow what a difference Really happy to have made this purchase! We bought it to help us with making smoothies (and boy does it do a great job!). Tried the margarita recipe and that is now a new favorite! Branched out and tried the salsa recipe and another winner! The programs work great and the easy cleanup feature is great! All in all we really didn't use the old mixer as much in the last two years as we've used the vitamix in the last two months! Can't wait for winter weather to try the soup recipes!Date published: 2019-06-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Virtually indestructible, great machine So far I've used my Vitamix basically every day since my purchase! Still excited to try hot soup and think I will purchase the dry container.Date published: 2019-06-08Rated 5 out of 5 by LanaBanana from Vitamix A3500 does not dissapoint! We bought refurbished and really love our A3500. We thought about the A3300 but it didn't have the quick set buttons like the A3500. The app on the phone works well enough, though we really need the scale to be fully operational. I wish it was more affordable - as it's a key feature of the 3300/3500 series. Blends like a dream, makes ice cream, blends ice, soup, the tales are true! Would recommend you buy the cadillac of blenders - we use ours every day.Date published: 2019-05-29Rated 5 out of 5 by ladygraciosa from Love my Vitamix I have to say it is the most used piece of equipment I have in my kitchen. I was concerned about the price but it is worth every penny. I would have never guessed it was reconditioned.Date published: 2019-05-17Rated 5 out of 5 by EZMG from Happy to have it! I use my Vitamix at least once a day. Sometimes more! I have dramatically increased my intake of fresh fruits and vegetables by using my Vitamix. I absolutely love it!Date published: 2019-05-14Rated 4 out of 5 by Maureen46 from Love the features, don’t have to do much. I got my vita mix a couple of months ago, love how easy it is to use.Date published: 2019-05-12
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?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.Date published: 2019-05-22
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?Hi Ashley, The only difference is the 5 year warranty for reconditioned units vs. 10 years on the new units.Date published: 2019-02-08
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 warrantyHi solis5555, We're only aware of Vitamix offering a 5 year warranty for their reconditioned blenders.Date published: 2018-12-06
What does it mean that it is reconditioned. Is it used ? Is there a warranty in place? ThanksHi 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!Date published: 2018-11-07
