Description

With a sleek stainless steel design, easy-to-clean touchscreen control panel and five pre-programmed settings for smoothies, hot soups, dips and spreads, frozen desserts and self-cleaning, the Vitamix A3500 changes the rules of blending. It boasts Smart-Detect Technology, making it compatible with Vitamix’s all-new family of single-serving containers.

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. This allows you to create multiple batch sizes with a single machine—then immediately store, serve or take them to go. A built-in digital timer and Variable Speed Control streamline recipes you process manually, helping you achieve the perfect texture every time.

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.

Pwerful and Easy to Use
I was struggling to decide between the Ascent A3500 and the classic 750 Pro. I went with the A3500 for two reasons – the testimonial of someone that owns an A3500 and the A3500's higher wattage (1500 watts versus 1320 watts). Turns-out the power is exceptional – blending chunks of frozen banana and frozen mango with milk into velvety smoothies.
As for the preset buttons on the A3500 - initially, I was not convinced that I’d use those buttons much, but those presets have turned-out to be rather convenient – especially for smoothies and for clean up. Just throw the ingredients into the blender, hit the preset button, and let the machine do the rest.
Considering the reputation of the other model I was considering (the 750 Pro), I had very high expectations for the A3500 and the A3500 did not disappoint. I met those expectations in every way.

I gave my still strong old Vitamix blender to a friend and simply love the upgrade to the Ascent 3500. There are so many more things possible with the new design.

Great green smoothies
Since I bought my VITAMIX A 3500 I have been having green smoothies for my lunch. It is helping me to lose weight and get more fruit and vegetables in my diet. Having fun making different frozen fruit desserts. We even like to make frozen coffee frappichino.

Love this blender!
Love this blender. The best blender I’ve ever owned. So easy to clean. Great quality and very powerful blender. The only thing the faster the speed the louder the blender is. The lid seals very well, no way it will spill like my precious one when I put it on high speed. I made butternut squash soup the other day and there was not one chunk of butternut squash, all of it puréed really well.
I would definitely recommend.

We have a Vitamix in our home and it is a work-horse! It is well built and we have never had any trouble as we have in the past with various other blenders. We use it every day for smoothies with fresh and frozen fruit and it still works like the day we bought it.

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?

How many years is the warranty?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It has a 10-year warranty.
how is this with vegies.... similar to a Cuisinart?
A shopper on Sep 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Vitamix is a power-blender; an appliance used for finely blending fruits and/or veggies accompanied with a liquid (water, milk, juice, broth or other) to assist in the emulsion process.
The Vitamix is dissimilar compared to a Cuisinart (I assume food processor) by design. The later is used to slice or chop fruits and veggies to a certain thickness or diced/grind consistency; basically more course results than what a Vitamix is intended for. Certain chopping and grinding can be accomplished with the Vitamix using a low setting and the pulse feature, depending on your cooking intentions.
I hope this helps.
is the shell metal? or stainless foil over plastic? does sure la table sell the graphite or white versions of the a3500 in stores? are they metal or plastic?
daniel bothman d on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The "stainless" finish is, to the best of my knowledge, liquid nickel plating plastic. The white model, which is what I have, is extremely sturdy plastic. It's GORGEOUS. If you notice, the color scheme is a bit different--the front of the dial and base pad are gray instead of black. I actually returned an A3300 to exchange it for this model in white because the color hadn't been available at the time of my original purchase.
Are the blades washable separate from the container?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, but you run it will soapy water to wash it
What is the dimensions of this model? Will it fit under a cabinet?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is 17 1/2 inches tall, 7 1/2 wide, 10 1/2 deep. It fits under my cabinet that measures 21 inches between countertop and top cabinet.
will this work with the Vitamix Series 750 containers?
Max W on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately not. The 750, along with any C or G series is now considered 'Legacy Series'. The 'Ascent Series' has Self Detect technology and requires a chip (NFC) on the container for the machine to turn on and to adjust the built in programs time based on the container type (64 oz, bowl, cup)
I own a vitamix A3500 . Can I grind wet rice and lentils in it?
A shopper on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I personally have not ground wet rice or lentils, but I don't see any reason why this would not be possible for the A3500. Item of note: using the "pulse" feature may help control how fine the finish grind will be.
Difference between Ascent 3500 and the 780?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2018
Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Blender
Vitamix A3500 Ascent Series Blender
Vitamix 780 Blender
Vitamix 780 Blender
BEST ANSWER: The 780 does not have a built-in timer, nor does it have self-detect technology for when the carafe is attached to the base. Also, the 780 does not have a clear lid and it only comes in black. The 780 has a 7 year warranty, opposed to the 10 year warranty on the A3500. Lastly, the 780 is not compatible with the 8-oz. blending bowl starter kit, however, it does allow a 20-oz. personal cup adapter.
I a man looking to buy the A3500 and can't decide on a color. I am deciding between the stainless, black stainless and black. Any suggestions?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I really think you can't go wrong with stainless. It works with everything. I too am a man and have the A3500 (which is awesome btw) and I chose stainless. Since it's been in 2 different kitchens and looks great. Good luck!
