Designed to process medium batches with a lightweight design that fits easily under most kitchen cabinets.
Every angle of the Vitamix container is designed to create our uniquely controlled vortex, systematically folding ingredients back to the blades for faster, smoother blends.
Letting Off Steam
The vented lid and lid plug let you bring dishes to hot serving temperatures right in the container, or add ingredients while blending to adjust texture.
The size and shape of the 48-ounce container is ideal for blending medium batches for small family meals.
Our containers are designed to prevent leaks from entering the motor base, which is the number one cause of failure in lower-quality blenders.

Review is for replacement container ONLY.I purchased a replacement 48 container for my Vitamix and though i'm happy that it no longer leaks oil from the bottom of it, the plastic container has become foggy within a 2 week time span. I understand it's from the fruits and veggies we put in them however i feel this needs to be addressed. Mine sits out on my counter and it looks cheap and like it hasn't been washed. It's embarrassing to have it look like that and it hurts to try and promote Vitamix to my friends and family for that very reason. Friends feel they'd like it to sit out too on the counter so it gets used but it's an eyesore. Could you make the container glass??

Interior scratches and gets cloudyWe have had our Vitamix for 2 years and we love it. The only problem is the interior or the plastic container scratches and gets cloudy making it visibly unattractive. Only dish detergent is used to clean it. We only use vegetables in the blender and avoid seeds and acidic substances such as lemons. I'm not sure why this interior deterioration occurs. If you could make a glass or Pyrex container that would be wonderful. But the plastic just doesn't compare with the quality of the machine.

Just the right size!I received an email about a $50 off special on the 48 oz. container and after reading many great reviews about it, I decided to buy it. I'm so glad I did! I was using the larger one before but got lazy because I would get tired of cleaning it when I made smoothie just for me. With this size, I can make a 1-2 serving smoothie and because it's smaller and shorter, cleaning and storing it is a breeze. It fits under the cabinet on the counter ready to use. Also, I'm only 5 feet tall so it's easier to use. Now I use my Vitamix everyday.

48oz containerWe have enjoyed our Vitamix for many years. Each morning I prepare breakfast for my wife and myself in our 64oz container and we love it. However, for smaller mixings we thought that it would be good to have a smaller container. We felt that the 48oz would do the job so we ordered it. Unfortunately, we found it to be unbalanced and clumsy to handle. We therefore returned it in exchange for the 32oz container which is perfect. I believe that the sole purpose of the 48oz is to fit under the cupboards of most counter tops which I find unnecessary as you can easily leave the base unit on the counter and store the container(s) in a cupboard. This review of 1 star is for the 48oz container only. Overall our Vitamix is a great product and deserves a 5 star rating.

Great Company!I called today to voice concerns about the pro 750 not blending as good as the 6300. The gentleman stated you may be better off with the 48oz container and sent it for free... I can't believe how good these people are. I called my wife and she agreed that we made an amazing choice to go with vitamix.

LOVE this blender.We've (2 of us) had this for a few years now, and we use it almost daily, mostly for smoothies, but sometimes for sauces and soups. I'm about to try and grind coffee with it as I cannot find my grinder and bot whole beans. Expensive yes, but all those green smoothies have been so healthy and delicious. Sometimes that is all I'll eat for lunch/breakfast: quick, delicious, healthy. Can't beat that! You deserve it too! Nice size for two people.

Do you know about this???I was visiting a friend and was surprised to see she had this smaller size container. As I live alone and mostly only make things for myself it is much more efficient for me to use this smaller size and also easier to store. I love it!

Perfect Size Vitamix 48 Ounce ContainerIn 2014 I purchased the Vitamix 5200S with the 64-ounce container and have been very happy with the results. During the 2015 holidays Vitamix offered holiday specials and I got the Vitamix 48 ounce container. I am glad I did. Not only do I have two containers to work with so I do not have to wash one to use again for a particular recipe, the 48 ounce is the perfect size for making healthy smoothies for my husband and me.
