Description

World-renowned Vitamix machines let you explore a full range of culinary techniques, making everything from silky smoothies and textured sauces to steaming soups and frozen desserts—all using healthy, whole-food ingredients. The all-new Ascent series features a sleek, industrial design with an improved interface that makes prepping your favorite foods easier than ever. It boasts a convenient, under-cabinet profile that fits easily in kitchens of every size.

With a sleek and stylish appearance from every angle, the Vitamix A2500 includes three pre-programmed settings for smoothies, hot soups and frozen desserts. Designed to take the guesswork out of perfecting your favorite recipes, this feature automatically adjusts to the container size you’ve selected, processes your ingredients and stops the blender when complete. A built-in digital timer and Variable Speed Control streamline recipes you process manually, helping you achieve the perfect texture every time.

This Ascent model is also compatible with Vitamix’s all-new family of Self-Detect containers. This allows you to create multiple batch sizes with a single machine—then immediately store, serve or take them to go.

Exceeds expectations with power and ease of use
Could not be happier with this blender. It is far better than my old ninja. I use my Vitamix at least once a day, I use to use my Ninja once every few months.

I've used this for smoothies, soups, choping, hummas, nut butters, etc.

Very powerful, and easy to use and clean. Everything I've made has super smooth textures, and the smoothie setting takes less than 1 minute.

Great Investment!
I've had my A2500 Ascent for about 2 weeks and absolutely love it! I've used it daily and have made smoothies, soup and nut butter. All have turned out perfectly. I really like the preset speeds for smoothies and soups; the soup is actually hot and ready to serve when finished on the soup setting. It is so simple; easy to use and easy to clean. The motor is more powerful than any I've used. Definitely a great investment. I would recommend it without reservation.

No surprise, I like it
After 10 years, our previous Vitamix started sounding funny and would occasionally smoke, so it was time to move on. Perfect timing with the sale. I like the streamlined control panel, preset options and the digital timer keeps us on track. I'm giving it five stars, because I don't find it to be noticeably quieter than the previous models, just a lower frequency; the burning smell (which is normal with new use) hasn't gone away, yet, after 3 weeks of use, so I may have to call Vitamix; and I like the old rubber top rather than the plastic. Blends fabulously, as always.

Skeptic but turned believer
I bought this for my wife as she had always wanted one even though I was skeptical with it being worth it costing so much. However after comparing it side by side with a popular bargain competitor, we found it to be quieter by about 10 decibels and the same smoothie came out noticeably smoother and finer. After a few recipes we've been sold completely and it doesn't hurt that it's a 10 year warranty.

I gave my college son my old Vitamix and was missing it so bought the new counter depth version and am so glad i did with the holidays coming!

The best: recently acquired the smaller cups for smoothies - makes great cream soup - so smooth people think they contain cream - which sometimes they do!

Been eyeing a vitamix for a long time and this seemed to have all the features I needed and always wanted from the classic line. Was a good price. Long 10 year warranty.

So the discount code you sent me has zero value. This will be me last order because of your false promises. Be glad this is for my wife's Birthday or I would just cancel it, Tyron
Tyron W on Jan 29, 2017
Vitamix makes the absolute best blenders. Very excited for the new models - the reviews are all great (less noise, blends small amounts of food, etc.). This one has programs. And Vitamix has single serving containers listed as coming soon for this blender on their website.
Mark G on Jan 18, 2017
Consumer ratings organization considers this brand the gold standard in blenders. Have used other brands of blenders that have not lasted or are too difficult to clean and are not as versatile. Also has one of the longest, if not the longest warranty of the highest rated blenders.

How is this product different from the other two ascent blenders?

Vitamix A3300 Ascent Series Blender
Vitamix A3300 Ascent Series Blender
Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Blender
Vitamix A2300 Ascent Series Blender
BEST ANSWER: A2300 - No pre-programmed settings. Mechanical interface (switches and nobs), timer.
A2500 - Like the A2300 but with 3 pre-programmed settings.
A3300 - Touch screen controls, digital control knob, programmable timer, larger display screen, no pre-programmed settings.
Does this container work with the new Ascent blenders? I'm specifically interested in the A3300 model, but theoretically, if it works for that model, it should work with the others in the series, too, right?

Where do I get other self-detect containers?
GeeBee on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Try directly through the manufacturer.
Are these BPA-free?
Karla D D on Jan 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is Tritan BPA-free plastic.
What is the HP of this machine?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Product Specifications

Series: Ascent
Dimensions: 11 x 8 x 17 in
HP: 2.2-peak
Electrical Ratings: 120 V, 50-60 Hz, 12 Amps
Weight: 11.86 lbs
Cord: 4 ft
Use: Household
Manufacturer: Vitamix - Cleveland, Ohio USA
Does this model have the self cleansing feature?
A shopper on Dec 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't have the cleaning preset but you just need to add warm water and a dab of dish soap after use and run it again to clean it right up. I start it on 1 then ramp up to 10 for about 30 seconds or so and it works great. Rinse it a couple times before running a cleaning cycle to get the best results.
What is the difference betwwen the 2500 and the 3300 Ascent?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The A3300 has touch buttons, a digital nob, programmable timer, and an LCD display screen. The A2500 has paddle switches, a mechanical knob, a time, and 3 pre-programmed settings. The big difference is (1) the type of user interface - Touch screen v. mechanical buttons/switches; and (2) pre-programmed v. programmable.

Otherwise, they have the same motor, container, and look.
