    Generally speaking, I like my new Vitamix. I spent a lot of time researching which blender to buy because of the high price. I did not take into consideration that the 64 oz container that comes with this model is too big for many blending jobs. Because it’s so wide at the bottom, many recipes can’t be successfully blended – the contents end up splashed on the sides and under the blades of the 64 oz container leaving those powerful Vitamix blades spinning helplessly in the air. Sauces and nut butters don’t work at all and single-serving smoothies and frozen desserts work only if you add extra ingredients and scrape down the sides frequently (making the pre-programmed settings worthless). Several times I had to dump everything out of my new Vitamix and finish the job with my $59 immersion blender.In the end, I spent the extra $150 to buy the 48 oz container (the even-smaller Ascent series containers looked interesting but are poorly reviewed). Everything works much better in the smaller container so I’m happily blending now with the 64 oz. container taking up space at the back of my cupboard.In the end, I feel very manipulated by having had to spend another $150 for good results, but I guess I have to say “well played Vitamix, well played”.

    I got fat…so I thought it would be good to eat better and try healthy smoothies with vegetables and fruit. I dugout my old blender and found the consistency poor and seeds in my teeth. So I did a lot of research and review reading. I narrowed it down to 5 brands, then 2, then Vitamix. I was really sold on the Professional Series 750 or the new Ascent A3500. I just could not pull the trigger on a $500-$650 blender. The Ascent A2500 has the same 2.2 hp motor, a 10 year warranty, is a fraction shorter than the 750, has a clear lid, a time counter, 3 program settings, and standard controls like the 750. The 750 has been a very popular model. I love the brushed stainless…but that fraction (1/4″) keeps it from fitting easily under my cabinets. The older style with the block centering pad does not look as sleek as the new Ascent series. I like the redesigned cooling system for the Ascent series and the 3 extra years for a total of 10 years warranty. That told me Vitamix was banking on the redesign. The Ascent series comes with the 64 oz container and there are additional accessories in the works.The Ascent series has 4 models which all have the same motor, container, warranty, etc. The A2300 has a 10 speed dial, pulse switch, start/stop switch, and digital timer. The A2500 has the same features and adds 3 program settings for smoothies, frozen desserts, and hot soups and adds $50 to the price. The A3300 is the same price as the A2500 but loses the program settings but gains touch start/stop, touch pulse, and a programmable timer (which allows for setting a count down time). The A3500 adds 5 program touch settings and $100 to the price. No matter which one you get, I’ll bet you’ll love it. A couple of weeks after getting the A2500, I got a wild hair and decided to also get the A3500. They are both awesome and right now I’m enjoying a fantastic frozen margarita.

    The quality of the smoothie vs our ninja is insane. Ninja smoothies are essentially applesauce, you chew them. Vitamix smoothies are amazing. You can actually drink them.That said, the ascent isn’t perfect. The pour spout is kinda dumb. Much messier than the square ninja to pour out. Also, I bet the taller, skinnier containers vitamix used to have are better for thick smoothies because these wide ones get this air pocket thing if you make them too thick. Also hoping they do a 32oz container. 64oz is pretty big.Just minor things.edit: still awesome. Made some really good broccoli soup. The 48oz container is what this should come with though. I almost never use the 64oz unless I making 2 days worth of smoothie for my wife and I. Unless you’re planning to make batches (and probably lose some of the nutrients with time degradation) plan on spending an extra $100 on the smaller container.

    I set up the blender and I was unable to get the power switch to operate. I would pull down and hold and nothing would happen. Defective from seller.Update: Returned this one and received a refund. Bought another and the new one works wonderfully. I want to leave this as a one star so that other people can gauge possibility of receiving a defective unit.

    I love my Vitamix!! I make smoothies every day. I had been using a Nutri Ninja, but they didn’t last but a year so I decided to step up to a Vitamix. Yes it was expensive, but hopefully with a 10 yr warranty, I will be money ahead in the long term. The smoothies are now really smooth; much more so than when made using the Ninja. I was very undecided about which model to buy, but I made the right choice with the A2500. It has the smoothie preset so I can start it and walk away. I use the same selection for cleaning because I know it will stop by itself. And cleaning is so easy. It grinds up anything I’ve put in it, even makes kale stems smooth in short order. I do like having the digital timer because I can see how much time I’ve used when blending for recipes. The lid snaps on easily and releases easily. I would recommend this model to anybody. The container size is perfect too.

    So I thought long and hard about splurging on a Vita Mix. I thought about it for years! I can’t believe that now that I took the leap, I miss my Nutri-Bullet! It was so simple and easy to use for smoothies as well as making dressings/sauces etc. The very large container does not allow for making one serving of a smoothie or small portions of dressings or sauces. So, after spending a fortune on this blender I ended up spending another $115. on a 48 oz. container. And guess what, it is still too big to make small servings! So now here I am looking at possibly spending yet another $120. on a smaller smoothie cup and blade. To add to that, the reviews are terrible of the $120. smoothie cups, apparently they don’t work very well! What to do now that I’m already out over $500. and I still haven’t found a way to make it work for me! Big bummer!

    We’ve had the older series of this for about 7 years, used it daily until it was finally ready for an upgrade. We choose this option again as we use the smoothie button and the frozen deserts button.We’ve always received excellent service from Vitamix in the past so, continuing to enjoy our blender.We did try the model without the preset buttons but really missed our buttons.New feature: It is a larger jug then before, which we like for our family smoothie time but when making for one person the ingredients splash around too much and don’t always get a smooth texture. I liked the longer jug better.Overall, happy about the upgrade. We always keep in on the counter as it’s used daily so, no issues with storage.

    Honestly… I love this blender. My toddlers have consumed more spinach in the last week than they probably have in their lifetime 😄the only issue was that sometimes it doesn’t start. I’m not sure if it is a power issue; but for a while i thought I may have had to return it…recently though it’s been working like a charm :)Overall… very happy!

    Best blender with multiple speeds if you blend daily. The base is a bit big so you need counter space
