  • 48-ounce Dry Container with Self Detect.jpg
  • Dry Overhead on Gray.jpg


Compatible with Ascent™ Series blenders only, this container is specially designed to efficiently grind fresh, whole-grain and gluten-free flour, mix batter, and knead thick yeast dough for pizza, soft pretzels, and homemade bread.

Self-Detect™ Technology
Your Ascent™ Series blender will recognize the container and automatically adjust blend settings for its size.

Containers and lids are made of BPA-free Eastman Tritan®.

Easy to Clean
Container and lid are both dishwasher-safe, or let them self-clean by blending a drop of dish soap and warm water for 35 seconds.

Long-Lasting Blades
Laser-cut blades are crafted from hardened stainless steel, delivering better blends and longer life.

Specially Designed Tamper
Use the included Tamper to press thick and frozen mixtures toward the blades for faster, smoother blends.

Clear Lid + Lid Plug
A clear lid with leak-proof seal helps you monitor the progress of every blend.  A removable, vented lid plug allows you to add ingredients while blending, and doubles as a 2-ounce measuring cup.

Engineered for Whole Grains
The blades in our Dry Grains Container are specifically designed to create a reverse vortex, pushing dry ingredients away from the blades to prevent packing.

This container can be used with all full-size Vitamix® blenders, however SELF-DETECT™ features are only available with Smart System machines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I use it to grind grains for bread, so amazing! Does a significantly better job then my old none vitamix blender. I don’t even have to sift because it does such a great job. Highly recommend if you want to grind your own grains

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bad first attempt at making pizza dough. I love my vitamix and use it often. I bought the dry ingredient container. My first try at making pizza dough didn’t go to well. The machine actually shut off because the dough was too dense. I’ve never had my machine shut off before. I’ll try again. But the vitamix is the best.
