Handling & operation of the Vitamix A3500i

Vitamix A3500i Ascent handling

Vitamix has consistently improved its operating concept. In addition to the tried and trusted choice between the "manual" and "time program", a third has been added: Customizable programs. This program is particularly suitable for preparing soups. Unfortunately, the installed "soup" program does not calculate the blending time based on the amount of ingredients in the container. If the container is full, one blending run may not be enough; If there is not enough soup in the container, the soup is boiling hot after the bending process. The programmable timer allows you to adjust the length of the blending time to your individual needs based on your own experience. Thus, the Vitamix operating concept leaves nothing to be desired.
Jog dial and touch panel are used as operating elements. These controls are supplemented by a display, which always provides up-to-date information about the running time and speed, as well as the running program.
In addition to the manual control and the programmable timer, the Vitamix A3500i offers a total of 5 time programs, which Vitamix calls "Smart Blending":

Smart Blending in the Vitamix A3500: 5 time programs that leave time for the important things in everyday life

  1. Smoothies: in 45 seconds the (green) smoothie is ready!
  2. Ice: creamy smooth ice cream consistency is reached within 55 seconds
  3. Warm soups: filled with raw vegetables, the A3500i creates a hot-to-drink soup in 5:45 minutes. Caution: let the soup cool down a bit otherwise you'll burn your tongue!
  4. Dips/spreads: everything is finely pureed in 60 seconds. This program is also ideal for you if you like particularly fine green smoothies or use a lot of fibrous ingredients, such as wild herbs. The smoothie will then be even more rounded.
  5. Cleanup: The A3500i takes care of stubborn residue itself. Simply fill with water and two drops of detergent and activate the cleaning program, rinse, done.

The programs are tried and tested. They are all well thought out and deliver what they promise. Apart from ice cream preparation, where constant manual tamping is unavoidable, the timed programs allow you to leave the room without anything boiling over. Once you started the blender, all you have to do is pour your soup/smoothie/nice cream into a bowl/glas after the timer runs out.

Ecological: The Vitamix A3500i has a "real" on/off switch on the right. The button is hidden under a cover, no splashes can get into the grooves. No standby power is wasted. Thumbs up!

Cleaning the Vitamix A3500i Ascent Series

Cleaning the Vitamix A3500i container

Cleaning the Vitamix A3500i is very simple. After emptying the container, simply rinse it under running water and you're done. For example, if you have prepared a white smoothie with fatty ingredients such as avocado, nuts or oil, fill the container with water and a drop of detergent - the cleaning program will do the rest. Then rinse the container under running water.

Our cleaning recommendation: Regardless of manufacturer instructions, we advise against cleaning the container, container lid, and insert in the dishwasher. Our experience shows that you can extend the lifespan of the container through manual cleaning.

Cleaning the Vitamix A3500i motor block

The rubber mat on the engine block can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth, it is also possible to remove the pat for cleaning.

The smooth surface allows the rest of the engine block to also be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Vitamix Dry Grains Container Smart for coffee or cereals

If you regularly grind coffee or cereals, the Vitamix Dry Grains Container Smart is recommended. For occasional grinding, the normal "wet" containers are also suitable. The containers may become blind/cloudy over time, making it difficult to see the containers content. This may not matter when grinding, but when blending pesto, which needs to have a very specific consistency, it is important to see when this consistency is reached in order to stop the blender at the right time.

Vitamix Tamper Holder for Ascent Series

To ensure that the tamper is always within reach, there is a practical, small tamper holder to match the blender. You can attach it to the left or right side of the motor block.

Cleaning Brush

For cleaning the container we recommand our cleaning brush, as viscose preparations tend to stick to the base of the blades (this happens with all blenders).

↑ up

Safety features of the Vitamix A3500i

  • Overheat protection: to protect the motor from overheating, the Vitamix A3500i has an overheat protection feature that shuts down the motor when it gets too hot. This only happens with viscous-sticky preparations, such as dough, which slows down the blade a lot. After a break of several minutes, you can continue. In general, however, when preparing dough, we rather advise using a food processor or kneading by hand. Liquid dough for crepes or pancakes are not a problem.
  • Container detection: If the lid is not attached, the blender won't turn on. The intelligent container detection (that's what the "i" in the name stands for) not only detects whether the lid is on, but also the container type. When using the small to-go containers, the speed is throttled to prevent excessive pressure in the container.

Vitamix A3500 or A3500i? What is the correct designation?

You can find information about the Vitamix A3500 and the Vitamix A3500i on the Internet, therefore the reasonable question occurs: What is the difference? The A3500i is a version of the A3500 known in the US, it has several safety features that the US model does not have. One of them being a safety mechanism that only allows starting the blender when the lid is closed. In addition, this variant also is GS-certified. In order to distinguish the two product variants and to make it clear that the A3500i variant is "smarter", the much-loved "i" is attached to the original name. Unfortunately, this also means that the US containers cannot be used on an European motor block.

The increased level of safety also means that German models are not compatible with the (additional) containers from the USA. So anyone interested in the additional containers will have to wait until they are introduced to the European market.

Vitamix A3500i alternatives

Vitamix A3500i vs. Vitamix A2500i

The Vitamix A3500i is more or less the deluxe version of the Vitamix A2500i:

  1. The A3500i comes in a high-quality stainless steel casing.
  2. The controls, both the jog dial and the touch buttons, have a better overall quality.
  3. 2 additional time programs enable the convenient preparation of dips and spreads, as well as the automatic cleaning of the container.

The only disadvantage compared to the Vitamix A2500i: For the A3500i, you have to be willing to spend about 200 € more.

↑ up

Vitamix A3500i vs. Vitamix Pro 750

The Vitamix A3500i is primarily aimed at those who want the latest of the latest:

  1. Cleaning: The A3500i's new container is dishwasher safe, though the sealing fins should be cleaned separately from time to time.
  2. Safety: The A3500i features SELF-DETECT. A container detection technology based on the NFC (Near field communication) known from smartphones. This means that the blender can only be started when the container is in place. The speed is throttled and the blending time is limited for smaller containers (250 ml or 600 ml).
  3. Warranty: The warranty for all Vitamix Ascent models has been extended, further 3 years add up to 10 year warranty. Secured investment for a decade!
  4. Usability: The pulse button reacts much faster on the A3500i. The proven Vitamix feeling, which is known from the analog classic TNC 5200, has been transported into the digital world. In addition, there is a degressive speed characteristic curve, which makes the use of the tamper increasingly superfluous, especially at low speeds (ice cream, nut puree, etc.). For the beginner, this may be hard to grasp, but once you start working with the device on a daily basis, you will appreciate these small details.

Disadvantages compared to the Vitamix Pro 750:

  1. Appearance:This point is debatable, because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We think that the Vitamix Pro 750 is visually very appealing.
  2. Acoustics: The Vitamix Pro 750 is approx. 3 dB quieter than the A3500i (fully loaded maximum speed). In the long run, you will appreciate that.
  3. Dimensions: The Vitamix Pro 750 takes up less space in the kitchen. It is 4 cm shorter.
  4. Radiation: The Pro 750 simply does without any Bluetooth or NFC technology - so there is no high-frequency pulsed radiation.

Both blenders have in common that they can create the creamiest smoothies ever. There is no difference here. For those who can do without the technical innovations of the A3500i, the Vitamix Pro 750 is worth considering. It is also the quietest Vitamix!

Hello dear team,
are accessories purchased in the USA, such as the smaller "48 ounce container" compatible with the Vitamix A3500i purchased on your site? Or are the devices different in the American and German market? Many greetings, Isabelle

Question submitted by Isabelle on September 11, 2022 at 17:38 o'clock

Hello Isabelle,

thank you very much for your message.
Unfortunately, the 1.4l containers available for purchase in the US are not compatible with the Ascent mixers available here.
There are two 1.4l container models available there. The first model does not physically fit, and for the second model, the built-in container recognition is not sufficient for the European Ascent mixers.
We hope that compatible containers will be available in Germany in the medium term.

Hello, I am a proud owner of an A3500i . My question is this: is it possible to prepare Nicecream with the two small containers (600 ml and 250 ml)? They are simply best when fresh ! kind regards

Question submitted by Remund on September 9, 2021 at 14:50 o'clock

Hello Remund,

thank you very much for your message.

Unfortunately, you cannot process viscous ingredients, such as frozen fruit, in the small containers. The containers are closed and this makes it impossible to use a tamper to bring the food back to the blade. Until there is a 1.4 liter or 0.9 liter container for the Ascent series, you still have to eat ice cream in large quantities ... I'm sorry I don't have more pleasant news for you there.

Hello, can I also make Energy Balls with dates using the small additional containers of the A3500i? Unfortunately, this does not work in the 2-liter container. Or do you have a tip on how this could work? LG Gundula

Question submitted by Gundula Bunge on October 5, 2021 at 20:20 o'clock

Hello Gundula,

thank you for your question

Energy Balls are a real challenge for high-speed blenders. There are a few things to keep in mind here. We have written a recipe for Energy Balls ourselves with our tips and hints:

You cannot use the small containers to prepare energy balls or viscous ingredients as they are closed at the top and you cannot use the tamper.

Question submitted by Alex on July 1, 2021 at 12:15 o'clock

Hello Alex!
There are no plans to launch the new food processor in Europe. The reason is that the European devices differ from the American ones and therefore the new food processor cannot be operated on any Vitamix available in our country.
If and when the food processor will be available in Germany is unfortunately still completely unclear.

I am interested in the latest Vitamix A3500i. Unfortunately, the 2L container is too large for me to prepare small amounts of smoothies. The 600ml container supposedly does not perform to the comparable quality. Do you know when the 1.4 L containers will be available for purchase?


Question submitted by Jola on May 8, 2019 at 09:33 o'clock

Hello Jola,

thank you very much for your questions.

Unfortunately, we cannot confirm a date when the 1.4-liter container for the Vitamix A3500i will be available – and most importantly, whether it will be offered for the German/European market at all.

The 600 ml cups are a great addition to the 2 liter standard container – especially for small amounts of fruit smoothies, shakes, pestos, dips – but not suitable for green smoothies.

Hello dear GreenSmoothies team.
In the technical data for the Vitamix A3500i it says that a measurement regarding the revolutions has been commissioned. Is there already a result for this?
In my research to buy a high-speed blender, I often hear that this should be at about 36,000 revolutions. Even dark green vegetables such as kale, broccoli, are broken down to their cell structure allowing the body to absorb them well. Is this true? What are your thoughts on this?
Last question: if I don't have a chance to prepare a smoothie fresh at work; how much time should there be between preparation and ingestion to lose as little vitamins, minerals, etc. as possible?
Thank you in advance for answering my questions. Kind regards, Annette

Question submitted by Annette on April 25, 2019 at 19:34 o'clock

Hello Annette,

thank you very much for your request.

Unfortunately, we do not yet have any measurement results for the Vitamix A3500i or the revolutions per minute under load.
In principle, the A3500i is technically identical to the Pro 750. We therefore do not expect any differences in the results. You can confidently assume that the Vitamix A3500i breaks up the cell fibers in the best possible way!

Regarding your further question: Of course, the nutrient content is highest immediately after preparing your smoothies. But it's no big loss if you prepare the smoothie in the morning and then drink it at work a few hours later. After all, that's how we do it.

Many greetings

Hello dear team,
the 1.4L container for the Ascent series is now also available in the USA with Self-Detect. This should then also fit on the German Vitamix, right? So I understand that containers without Self-Detect do not work, but with should not be a problem or are there differences again?
Thanks in advance for an answer!

Kind regards,

Question submitted by Sabrina on April 13, 2019 at 07:28 o'clock

Hello Sabrina,

thank you very much for your request.

The US version of the 1.4 liter container for the Ascent Series is unfortunately not compatible with the Ascent mixers for the German market

Reason: Self-Detect in the USA means that the blender recognizes whether the container is fitted. In our country, the Self-Detect function includes more – an additional lid detection, i.e. the device detects whether the container, including the lid, is in place.

I have been satisfied with my purchased Bianco di Puro for the past few years – as times change and the kids are now grown and have their flats, I have had to pass on my blender. The blender of choice now is the Vitamix A3500i. My questions: Since the technical stats are similar (Bp:1,680 watts / V Ai: 1400 watts) is it of interest which of the two devices heats the mixture fast? Which device is louder? Which has the better blades, or additional containers?

Many thanks in advance,

Question submitted by Kirstin on July 18, 2018 at 16:43 o'clock

Hello Kirstin,

thank you very much for the questions.

Here are our answers:

1. The temperature change is identical, however the Vitamix heats soups fast due to the higher blade tip speed.
2. The A3500i is a bit louder than the Bianco Primo also because of the higher speed.
3. The A3500i has the more powerful blades. (Longer). As for the additional containers, it depends on what you want. The Square container has very long blades and is a good add-on container for the Puro Originale if you want even creamier smoothies. With the Vitamix, the included container already brings the maximum creaminess and also beats the Square container. For Nicecreams and thicker preparations, you would need an additional container, such as the 1.4-liter container. Unfortunately, we have been waiting in vain for a binding release date for months.

Hello to all Vitamix users and the gruenesmoothie team,

Since my Kitchenaid Magnetic Drive Standmixer did not convince me in every discipline, I am flirting with the Vitamix A3500i, hoping to achieve better results.

Have you – even if you do not sell Kitchenaid products – already made comparisons with the blenders you offer?

Good day,
can the Bluetooth function be deactivated? For the purpose of reducing health exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic radiation? Is the function basically activated when the blender is connected to the power, or only when in use? It would be a pity to get a device in the house that is supposed to be good for health, but it harms it on another level.
Thank you very much.

Question submitted by Vincent on August 5, 2018 at 14:56 o'clock

Hello Vincent,

thank you for the question.

All Vitamix Smart Mixers (A2300i, A2500i, A3500i) have Bluetooth enabled as soon as the on/off switch on the side is turned on.

The only time Bluetooth is turned off, is when the blender is disconnected from the plug.

Those who have health concerns about Bluetooth despite the usually very short transmission time are better off with the Vitamix Classic blenders — which don't have the fancy Bluetooth function.

However, the results of the A3500i and Pro 750 are almost identical, so the A3500i is by no means better.

Hello team,

the A3500i is Bluetooth compatible with the Smartscale app and the Smartscale scale, which is also offered by Vitamix, but is only available in the USA at the moment.

Is it known whether this Smartscale scale also appears in this country?

Question submitted by Rikibu on April 21, 2018 at 19:56 o'clock

Hello Rikibu,

thank you for the question.

So far, we have no info if the PerfectBlend Smartscale scale will be released in Germany….
The A3500i can be paired with the Vitamix Perfect Blend app, just like all Vitamix Ascent series blenders.

Best regards,

Question submitted by Joachim on January 15, 2018 at 15:25 o'clock

Hello JG,

thank you for your message.

The small to-go containers with 600 ml and 225 ml are scheduled to be released at the end of November 2018. However, there will not be a dry container – grinding is also possible in the “wet containers”.

Many greetings

Dear team,
first I would like to thank you for the incredibly valuable homepage with great reports and tips!
I've been thinking about which high-performance blender to buy for a year....
I am wavering between the Vitamix Pro 750 and the new A3500i.
About my uses:
- I prepare curry pastes, pesto as well as nut butter. Thus, I thought of an additional small container (e.g. 1.4 l) to the 2.0 l container. (Also because of the strong flavours, an extra container is probably necessary?)
- I also like to grind grains into flour. I was thinking of an extra drying container for that as well, since the plastic is supposed to go blind. (This is not available for A3500i?)
- Appealing is the child lock of the new A3500i, since family planning is pending.

*Is it possible to realize all the above-mentioned creations with the 2.0 l container of the A3200i, or should I opt for another device?
*Is a 2.0 l container too big for making curry pastes?
*Could I use the same container for curry pastes, pestos, and smoothies?
*Would using one container for everything give up flavor to the flour?

Questions upon questions...
I would appreciate it if you could help me with my uncertainties. Thank you very much in advance!!!

Kind regards,

Question submitted by Julia on December 29, 2017 at 00:10 o'clock

Dear Julia,

thank you for your positive feedback and for your questions!

It is true that an additional 1.4 liter container would be useful for nut butters, curry pastes and pestos. However, both dry and wet 1.4 liter containers are currently only available for the Pro 750.

In general, both the A3500i and the Pro 750 are equipped for all needs, it always depends on the quantity. If the 2 l container is filled with 650ml of curry pastes, pesto, nut purée or cereal flour, these preparations should also succeed without problems in just one container.
Due to the strong flavours of the various foods, it may well happen that some of it is released and stuck to the container. In addition, it can happen that the container becomes blind due to permanent grinding. A grinding container would then actually be an advantage.
The A3500i definitely has the advantage of maximum safety with SELF-DETECT technology. However, for your predominant needs that you have listed, we would rather advise you to use the Pro750 with at least one additional container. The 1.4 liter container only if you want to process smaller quantities, and the grinding container for grinding grain.

Best regards,
Your Team

your description states:
"The Vitamix Ascent Series world of accessories consists mainly of mix & go containers (600 ml and 250 ml), a 1.4 liter container and a grinding container."
In my research, so far I can only find that the 600 ml and 250 ml container will be available in spring 2018. On the other hand, I can't find that there will be a 1.4 liter and/ or a grinding container.
Do you have any information on this. Also will there be a grinding container for the Vitamix A3500 i?
Thank you for your answer!

Question submitted by Kathrin on December 25, 2017 at 20:39 o'clock

Hello Kathrin,

thank you for your question.

Currently, we have the info that the small to-go containers with 600 ml and 225 ml are expected to be released at the end of November 2018.

The 1.4-liter grinding container will not be released in Europe and the release date of the 1.4-liter wet container unfortunately keeps getting pushed back. The fact that there will be no grinding container can be gotten over as we were also able to achieve comparable grinding results in the standard 2.0 liter container.

To be on the safe side, we would like to point out that the USA containers unfortunately do not work on the German models with the "i" at the end.

Those who need a 1.4-liter container are therefore better off with the Vitamix Pro 750...

Best regards,
Your team

Good evening
When will all the accessories for the Ascent 3500 be available in Europe? Or can I use the accessories from the USA on the European 3500i devices?

Best regards

Question submitted by SiMiWi on December 25, 2017 at 20:15 o'clock

Hello SiMiWi

Unfortunately, there currently are no accessories for the A3500i in Germany.

However, from the end of November 2018, the small to-go containers with 600 ml and 225 ml will be available.

The accessories for the American A3500I do NOT work on the European A3500i. The U.S. devices have less safety features than the European devices.

Best regards,
Your Team

Hi Martin,

thank you very much for your question.

The first badge of Vitamix A3500i reached us yesterday (14.11.2017) and the first devices are already on their way to our customers.

If you pre-ordered the device, your package should arrive tomorrow at the latest.

Hello dear team,
I have a Bianco Diver. This Vitamix has caught my eye. How useful is an upgrade?
Thank you very much and best regards. Patrick

Question submitted by Patrick Löffler on November 13, 2017 at 19:13 o'clock

Hi Patrick,

whether an upgrade to the Vitamix A3500i makes sense is best left to you to judge.

I can give you a few reasons why an upgrade might be worthwhile:

1. Touch panel and infinity jog dial with good haptics and really well thought-out program cycles. We are very satisfied with the operation.

2. High-quality stainless-steel casing. Cleanly processed with great optics.

3. Cable winder in housing

4. “intelligent” safety features: blender only starts when the container is closed(!).

5. The Transparent lid is really useful when blending. This will certainly be the future!

6. Smoothies become creamier / finer and fewer fruit core particles remain.

7. 10-year warranty for private use on all parts incl. container

Perhaps one or the other argument has already convinced you.

Best regards,
Your team

Hi Gudrun,

Dear Angela,

the new 225ml and 600ml containers unfortunately only fit the Ascent series. However, the quality of the results in your large container, especially of green smoothies, can't be reach by the containers.

Best regards,

i would be interested in the Vitamix A3500i. However, I still have two questions:

- can you also order the different containers right at the start of sales?

Thank you and many greetings

Hello Stefanie,

Dear Fabi,

Thank you very much for your questions!

1. As with previous Vitamix models, the blades are not removable. But the containers are now dishwasher safe.

Fantastic product. I've been on the fence because of the high price but it's worth every penny, it does so many things. With a normal blender I only used to make smoothies, mayo, and cream soups. This can grind your oats, make ice cream, bliss balls, potato patties, smooth hummus, dips - so many additional things. Plus everything is so much smoother, you won't find strawberry seeds in your smoothie with this one. Very pleased.

One thing to note though, the 2L container is ideal for family-size portions. I purchased the small 225ml cup as well which is great for small portion dips. But for mayo, bliss balls, nut cream, and other stuff I find the 2L a little bit too large. So if you're looking at some bundle deal and often make stuff for only 1-2 ppl I'd recommend going for the 1.4L container.

Top power blender from the company VITAMIX.
The best blender we've ever had, previously we had a less powerful one from WMF. We use it almost daily, with the additional new grinding container I can easily grind everything for baking bread and I can sell my Kitchen Aid Set (which always got warm with 1kg of bread). We are completely satisfied. The pestos in the small container are first-class and so quick. Thanks for that.

The best blender we have ever had
The best blender we've ever had. It's flexible, sturdy, powerful and easy to use. We do not find it particularly loud. Sure, it can't be whisper quiet with the power, but we have significantly weaker blenders that are equally loud. The accessories of the anniversary model also make perfect sense. We are satisfied all around.

Absolute recommendation
In December, after much deliberation, I ordered the Vitamix A3500i and since then it is really every day in use!
I have 4 years previously used the smallest Vitamix S30 (3-person household) and was also very satisfied with this, but now and then I wished to have a bigger and smaller container.
The fact that the A3500i in the Family Pack also has a 0.6 liter and two 225 ml containers in addition to the 2 liter container convinced me.
At first, I was concerned about whether we would need the large container with 3 people (the intermediate size seems to only be available in the US), but now it's in use practically every day for green smoothies and various doughs.
The small containers are also totally recommended, we make our own ketchup, salad dressings, chutneys, ginger shots and even almond paste in them! If I hadn't seen this in a Vitamix video, I wouldn't have thought it could be done without a tamper, but it went quite smoothly and within 1-2 minutes we had a creamy almond puree that was on par with what we got at the store!
The only "negative" point that comes to mind, which is similar with other powerful blenders: the device is very loud! We have therefore the noise protection mat Revo2Pads and can also highly recommend this to anyone who has neighbors :-)
Oh yes, on the Internet is often the talk about the fact that the different blending containers are not or not always recognized (that had initially deterred me a bit). With us, however, so far all containers were recognized immediately (it is important for the smaller containers that they are tightly screwed though).

Hi, thanks a lot for your help and super advice. We love our Vitamix 750, I'm so glad I decided to use this device.The best, our Mario, who is severely disabled, loves smoothies, since we have this high speed blender.

The device is almost a revelation :)
I've been testing almost everything (green smoothie, ice cream, soup, nut milk, ginger shot) for three days now. Everything creamy, fluffy, fiber free, delicious, fast, easy.... Just wondering why I waited so long to buy it! Almond paste as the supreme discipline I still have to test, but am already completely thrilled.

And last but not least, the great offer with water bottle, recipes, 45 days test and a super nice service with competent advice ... Amazing!

Total excitement!!!
I received the A3500i as a gift from my husband for my birthday. I am just thrilled. I always wanted to have the Vitamix, but since I already had another, which was also not so cheap, I have always postponed the purchase. Now my husband has taken over for me and I'm so happy. I tried it today for the first time in which I blended like every morning: spinach, celery, parsley, 1 banana, 1 apple, 1 pear with water and the juice from a lemon.... i was so thrilled with how fast and especially super creamy the unit got it done. I am just happy!!!!! The device is worth every penny!!!!!!!!

Probably the best blender you can imagine.
I have long considered whether to replace my 2015 also expensive purchased Kitchenaid Magnetic Drive Blender (2HP power) with a Vitamix, as I was not so satisfied with the former device in many disciplines.

And I did it after all...
The device was delivered mega fast. Monday evening ordered, Wednesday already received the device. TOP.

The unpacking alone is fun. The feeling when starting it, the rubber coating, the processing, noble and worth every penny.
Blending container robust, handy, very good opening (without lid) so that the filling of ingredients never misses.

What I immediately learned to appreciate is the tamper. Gone are the days of turning off the blender, laboriously scrape the walls free again and continue blending.
For this to work, however, you have to reach a certain minimum filling level - you just make twice the amount of nut puree, nicecream, etc...

Frozen bananas, prunes, cinnamon, cocoa, a pinch of salt - that was the first thing I tried. Unbelievable how quickly a homogeneous puree came about here.

The small distance between the container wall and the blade of my old blender annoyed me massively, because it made emptying with a spatula a cramp, but with the Vitamix A3500i it's a real pleasure. Here it works well with a medium-sized silicone spatula without permanently twisting the blades to get to the contents adhering to the bottom.

Next I made nut puree (200g cashew, 200g hazelnut, 200g almond - all roasted in the oven for 10 min and let cool).

Chopped on speed 1 and then up to full speed.
What stands out? Even at full throttle - Wow, it is quiet compared to the compared device above...

... and how fast it transforms the 600g nuts into a liquid, homogeneous puree... unbelievable...
The puree was only slightly warm, as was the container.

A quick raw vegetable salad (carrots, beet) on level 1 can also be prepared super - in record time.

in summary, I can at least say that I am very satisfied with the blender purchase. Not least because of the many information along the product description here on the site.

The only thing that is missing now are the accessory containers, the Vitamix Smartscale scale and a localized version of the app...

I am thrilled!
First of all, thank you for the nice competent advice and super fast delivery. For more than 5 years now, my day starts with a green smoothie, and my old blender had always managed that well. Actually, I did not need a new blender, but by the fact that I now make my own almond paste and my old blender had no speed control, I decided after much deliberation for the Vitamix A3500i, and that was the best decision ever! It really is world class! I didn't think you could taste the difference so clearly, but it's true, the consistency is super creamy and the smoothie tastes even better. My first blender experience was your tomato soup, it is an absolute hit, and is the first soup I have ever made in a blender. Thank you for these great recipes that inspire me every day. The cleaning brush is optimal and very practical. You can also clean the bottles wonderfully with it
I am already looking forward to the next challenge with my new super great Vitamix!!! I am totally happy :-)

After a super short delivery time, I received the blender from you and was already excited about the stylish appearance when unpacking. And it fits together with blender jar (without lid, however) even on the countertop under the wall unit, which hangs quite low. So far we have made our beloved kale smoothies, which turned out just great. The see-through lid is nice. And it's reassuring that the unit really only blends when the lid is on. We have two children, you never know if they do not want to mix something sometimes.... I am really excited and look forward to the many recipes (a great recipe book is included, very classy and also from you a great booklet with all the summarized basics as well as the cards with the recipes are also prima!)

Really a strong device!
Yesterday, the new Vitamix Ascent finally arrived with me and the joy is huge! The device is quite impressive! Not only the new design with touch function and timer, but also the safety component has convinced me to wait for the device and now it is finally here. So far I've made smoothies, a pumpkin soup, a dip and also an ice cream with it and I'm so incredibly happy! The results were outstanding, the smoothies and the soup became super creamy and also the ice cream from frozen fruits were made very fine super easily. That's how I love Nice Cream! The unit really only starts when the lid is on! In addition, I also really like the new container with the transparent lid, because you can also view the blending process from above. Pretty cool!
The device is really a hit!!! I am happy!
