With the launch of its new Ascent Series blenders, Vitamix has redefined the form and function of high-performance blending. This unique blender series combines state-of-the-art design with power, precision, and intuitive controls that elevate the blending experience. Add to that a family of interchangeable SELF-DETECT™ containers, and Vitamix Ascent Series machines earn a permanent place on the kitchen counter.

"Our teams started from scratch when creating the Vitamix Ascent Series machines," said Tony Ciepiel, Chief Operating Officer "We went to our customers and said, 'What are your challenges? How can we make the blending experience better for you?' We then took these findings, combined them with the lessons we've learned in nearly a century of selling high-performance kitchen products, and engineered and designed a high-performance kitchen appliance like no other on the market."

"The biggest thing I'm excited for with this new machine is that whenever you turn off the machine, it resets to the lowest speed. The reset is electronically built in." - Amanda Rae

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, or upgrade to Brushed Stainless or a metallic paint finish.

"The design is very sleek and contemporary, and the size is perfect to fit on the counter, under cabinets." - Gabrielle

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, which will blend your recipes for the time you've entered and stop the machine automatically.

"My favorite feature is the timer, which means I can set the timer to heat and whip up my morning chai latte, walk away, and take care of the stuff life is made of, knowing the blender will stop automatically!" - YTraci

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 machines come with a newly designed 64-ounce low-profile container with clear lid, but they are also compatible with a full family of container sizes that Vitamix will be launching this spring. The new line will offer a 20-ounce cup and an 8-ounce bowl to start, each with lids to let you immediately serve, store, or take blends to go.

The Vitamix Ascent Series machines also come with a hardbound cookbook and a 10-year full warranty to ensure your new Vitamix blender will serve you for years to come. Choose a machine with Variable Speed Control and Pulse, or add Program Settings to automatically process your favorite recipes. Learn more about the Series to find the one that's made for you.
