17 Unique Features In Vitamix Ascent™ Series Blenders

|

With SELF-DETECT™ containers, built-in timers, and a touchscreen interface, you’ve never seen blenders like this before. Learn all about the new Ascent™ Series blenders from Vitamix, and discover 17 things you can do with these high-performance machines.

  1. Looks Stylish

  2. The Vitamix Ascent Series machines were innovated to provide the best experience from the inside out. The first thing users will notice is the state-of-the art product design that looks sleek and modern from every angle. Choose from standard colors Black, White, Red, and Slate with the A2300 and A2500, or upgrade to Brushed Stainless or a metallic paint finish with the A3300 and A3500.

  3. Control with a Single Touch

  4. Modern and sophisticated, the A3300 and A3500 offer a scratch-resistant touchscreen that easily wipes clean.

  5. Time Your Blends

  6. Another new feature is the built-in digital timer, inspired by suggestions from current Vitamix owners. The digital timer will help you create perfect textures every time by displaying how long your blend has been processing. Programmable timers are also available in the A3300 and A3500, which will blend your recipes for the time you've entered and stop the machine automatically.

  7. Make Restaurant-Quality Smoothies

  8. Make your own delicious smoothies with the same blender brand trusted by top national smoothie chains. Whether you’re craving a refreshing tropical smoothie or a green smoothie packed with nutrients, there are plenty of healthy recipes to choose from.

  9. Self-Clean

  10. The 64-ounce low-profile container is self-cleaning, like all Vitamix blenders. Just add a drop of dish soap to the container, fill it halfway with warm water, and blend on your machine’s highest speed for 30 to 60 seconds. The A3500 features a self-cleaning program setting for added convenience.

  11. Grind Nut Butter

  12. Making your own natural, preservative-free nut butters is so easy. Try a variety of flavors for sandwiches, fruit dips, healthy snacks, or a peanut butter smoothie. Also, each Ascent Series blender comes with a hardbound cookbook with a variety of techniques to help you get the most out of your new machine and create recipes that will wow your friends and family.

  13. Blend Continuously

  14. Use the tamper to process thick or frozen mixtures and fully incorporate all ingredients into the blend—without having to stop the machine and scrape the sides of the container.

  15. Pulse

  16. Our Pulse feature helps you achieve a variety of flawless textures by working in tandem with the Variable Speed Control. The higher the speed setting, the larger the burst of power achieved with the Pulse.

  17. Make Hummus or Other Tasty Treats

  18. Whether you’re looking for an after-school snack idea or planning a party straight out of a food magazine, you can use your Vitamix blender to make simple dips and spreads that only taste elaborate.

  19. Swap Containers

  20. Along with the full-size container, Ascent Series machines can be used with additional container sizes to create individual servings with your full-sized blender. Perfect for a personal smoothie or lunch on the go, a 20-ounce cup with flip-top lid or storage lid, and an 8-ounce bowl with storage lid will be available in Spring 2017.

  21. SELF-DETECT

  22. Vitamix Ascent Series blenders are engineered with new SELF-DETECT™ technology, so the machine knows precisely which container is placed on the base and adjusts blend settings accordingly. The machine will not power on until a container is properly seated on the motor base, and certain programs are automatically disabled if the wrong container is used, such as hot soup in any container but the 64-oz. container.

  23. Monitor Blends

  24. The newly designed 64-ounce container that comes with every Ascent Series machine features a clear lid, allowing users to monitor blends without stopping the machine. The updated lid plug doubles as a measuring cup for added convenience.

  25. Put Containers in the Dishwasher

  26. Spend more time enjoying your Vitamix-made meals and less time worrying about cleaning them up. You can use the self-cleaning ability of every Vitamix, or all of the new Ascent Series containers are dishwasher-safe for tough cleanup such as nut butters!

  27. Make Hot Soup without a Stove

  28. The speed of the Vitamix blades creates enough friction to turn raw ingredients into hot soups and sauces—in less than 7 minutes.

  29. Enjoy Automated Recipes

  30. Automatically process your favorite recipes in a single touch with program settings. The A3300 offers program settings for Smoothies, Hot Soups, and Frozen Desserts, while the A3500 offers Smoothies, Hot Soups, Frozen Desserts, Dips & Spreads, and Self-Cleaning.

  31. Make Homemade Non-Dairy Milks

  32. Create delicious, non-dairy, lactose-free milk for many great uses, whether pouring over cereal or making smoothie recipes, overnight oats, or vegan mac and cheese—all without the additives that are found in commercially available non-dairy milks.

  33. Blend for a Decade, Guaranteed

  34. Vitamix Ascent Series machines come with a 10-year full warranty, ensuring your new Vitamix blender will serve you for years to come.
