Wonderful For medium to large Smoothies

Went from a 5200 to the 7500. Loved the new design of the blender and how quiet it is. However for my smoothie reciepe didn't blend well in the wide base container. This container blends perfectly and I don't even need the tamper anymore.

Please change design

Please change the design so it's as effective as the original. Better handle and tighter base fit. So many need this shorter container to fit under cabinets!

Base does not fit properly

Purchased the G- Series 750 and I love it! However, I purchased the 48 ounce container and I am very disappointed in the way it fits on the base...I shouldn't have to hold the base while using the machine.

Not a tight fit on base

This container does not seat tightly on the posts of the blender. Early on when using my new blender (G-series, 750) and this container, the "nut" that powers turning the blades got stripped slightly because of the wobbling when you add ingredients. NOT a good design for such an expensive product.

Love the size, hate the handle

I love the size of the container. It's a perfect fit on my counter and under my cabinets. But I hate the handle. It is hard to hold and is uncomfortable. It looks and feels cheesy, compared to the original container's handle.

Love my vitamix

I would have given this 5 stars except this container slips a bit when I put it on the base. I purchased a set on QVC with dry container too and the dry container fits perfectly but the wet one doesn't. I see needing a new wet container at some point.


Love the size but i would really like it to have a solid rubber handle like some of the others. A bit hard to handle and very hard to clean as handle is tubular. Thx!

Suits my needs, but not as comfy as the 64 OZ one

I purchased the 48 OZ, since the 64 OZ is not going under the Kitchen Closet. While the new jar is OK, it has not been perfect for lack of proper handle, compared to 64 OZ.

Perfect Size

This container is the perfect size. I make smoothies for my family of four for breaksfast in it regularly. I am much more likely to use it since it fits under my cabinet and can be out on the counter. Great buy!!!

Perfect Size

Fits perfectly on my countertop, right under the cabinetry. Now that the unit is out in full view, I'm more prone to use it everyday - LOVE it !!
