Handling & operation of the Vitamix E320
The Vitamix E320 has a simple and intuitive operating concept: the on/off switch on the right side starts the blending process. The blending speed can be controlled from 1 to 10 with the dial in the middle. The left switch starts the so-called pulse function, which directly activates the set speed level as long as the switch is held down. The same function also is possible using the on/off switch. Switching on and off once is sufficient here instead of keeping the button pressed during the blending process.
The Vitamix E320 is equipped with the 2.0 liter Pro container. This container is characterized by its lower height and a wider diameter than, for example, the 2.0 liter container Classic, which also has a 2.0 liter volume, but is much narrower.
The Vitamix E320 has particularly long blades, these ensure excellent blending results. Green smoothies are not only fiber-free, but also have a wonderfully creamy and fluffy consistency.
The compact height of the container allows the Vitamix E320 to fit under any kitchen counter and make it easier to remove viscous preparations such as nicecream or hummus
However, the wider and compact container shape requires larger minimum quantities: For preparations that can be poured from the container, such as smoothies, almond milk or soups, about 500 ml are needed. For more viscous preparations such as almond paste or nicecreams (ice cream), about 800 ml are required. If this is too much for you, we recommend purchasing the 1.4 liter container, which allows you to prepare smaller quantities starting at 250 ml.
The lid of the container is equipped with the typical Vitamix lid insert. This can be opened during the blending process in order to push the Ingredients back to the blades of the container.
Cleaning the Vitamix E320
Cleaning the Vitamix E320 container
Cleaning the container is easiest if you rinse it immediately after preparing liquid meals such as green smoothies or almond milk. Then dry it with a kitchen towel if necessary. Done.
For thicker preparations, simply fill the container halfway with lukewarm water, add 1 to 2 drops of dishwashing liquid and blend on maximum for about 30 seconds. Then pour out and rinse with clean water. If there still is food residue - especially underneath the blades - we recommend the use of our practical cleaning brush.
Cleaning the Vitamix E320 motor block
Food residues or dirt on the motor block can easily be wiped off with a damp cloth. The rubber mat on the motor block can be removed for cleaning.
Recommended accessories for the Vitamix E320
If you're looking for a compact, powerful blender for medium and large preparation quantities, you'll be perfectly happy with the Vitamix E320. For smaller preparation quantities from 250 ml for liquid consistencies and 300 ml for thicker consistencies, it makes sense to purchase the 1.4 liter container.
For quick cleaning of the container - especially after preparing thick consistencies such as hummus - we also recommend our practical cleaning brush.

Vitamix E320 vs. Vitamix E310
Before we discuss the differences between the Vitamix E310 and E320, let's first talk about their commonality: Both blenders belong to the Vitamix Explorian Series and have the same motor base - meaning the E310 and E320 are equally powerful and operate in the same way. The difference lies in the container: The Vitamix E320 is equipped with the Vitamix 2-liter Pro container - the best container we know of when it comes to achieving fiber-free and creamy green smoothies, fruit smoothies, or vegetable smoothies. This is due to the particularly long blades. However, because of the wider container base, the minimum amount for preparing smoothies and liquids is higher compared to other containers, at around 500 ml, and for thicker consistencies like nice cream or hummus, it is around 800 ml. If you also want to prepare small quantities starting from 250 ml, you will need an additional container such as the Vitamix 1.4-liter Classic container.

If you also want to prepare small quantities starting from 250 ml, you will need an additional container such as the Vitamix 1.4 Liter Container Classic.. On the other hand, the Vitamix E310 is equipped with the smaller, tapered 1.4-liter container. With this container, green smoothies will be slightly less creamy and smooth, but you can use the same container to make small to medium-sized batches ranging from about 250 ml up to 1.4 liters. If you value a versatile blender without the need for additional containers and are willing to compromise slightly on smoothie consistency, then the Vitamix E310 could be a sensible alternative.
Vitamix E320 vs. Vitamix Pro 750
Both blenders are equipped with the best container for making (green) smoothies. The difference between the Vitamix E320 and the Vitamix Pro 750 lies in the motor power, operation, design, warranty, and price. The E320 has a slightly less powerful motor compared to the Pro 750. As a result, the blender does not rotate as fast as the Pro 750, and although it is minimal, this can be tasted in green smoothies, especially when using fibrous leafy greens like wild herbs or kale. For most preparations, the minimal taste difference is not significant and is unlikely to be a decisive factor for most users.
While the E320 does not have time programs, the Pro 750 features 5 well-thought-out automatic program functions, including smoothies, soups, and cleaning. Its high-quality housing with a no-touch coating (no fingerprints) has also won awards. Vitamix offers a 7-year warranty on this model. On the other hand, the Vitamix E320 does not have the same elegant look and comes with a 7-year warranty, but it is significantly more affordable. Those looking for the best smoothie consistency at the best price should go for the E320, while those who value an elegant appearance and time programs should consider the Vitamix Pro 750:
Questions & Answers about the ProductAsk a question
[5 of 5 Stars]
Perfect blender and perfect adviceI hadn't even heard of the new E320 yet. As I wasn't sure which blender would suit me best, I phoned Grüne Smoothies for advice (thank you for all the explanations) and it turned out that the E320 was ideal for me and my applications. I also bought the 1.4l container.
What I particularly liked about the consultation was that I had actually chosen a much more expensive blender. However, as it was important to me that a blender had no additional radiation (Bluetooth, W-Lan etc.), the E320 was recommended to me.
Now I don't have a direct comparison with other high-performance blenders but only with my previous kitchen blender, but I can't imagine that it can give even better results. I am super happy with both the 2-litre container (makes perfect smoothies) and the 1.4-litre container (which I use for smaller quantities and for grinding).
Before the consultation, I was sure that I needed programmes. But with the infinitely variable speed and manual pulse control, I don't miss anything at all.

An investment that pays offIn terms of blending results, there is really no comparison with all the other blenders I have used so far.
