Editor's Notes

June 20, 2019:

One of the things I love about VitaMix blenders is their versatility. Capable of delivering more than what an average blender can do, these devices are well-adept at making hot soups and creamy foods just as easily as they help you prepare frozen treats or smoothies. They're a great addition to kitchens of all sizes, so even though it might first appear that many of these models are very similar, each one has its own set of features that help set it apart from the others.

I included the Standard 5200 pretty high up on the list due to its thermal overload protection, 64-ounce container, and ability to self clean in 30-60 seconds with just a little soap and warm water. Cleaning blenders can be a sensitive topic to those who spend a lot of time preparing meals in the kitchen, so having a blender that can help make the cleaning process faster gets an "A" in my book. This feature is common for many of the options on the list as well. Maintained the Legacy 7500 for its elegant cherry-red base, its 2.2-horsepower motor, and extra-long power cord. It's also one of the options that is conveniently designed to fit under many kitchen cabinets. I included the Professional 750 for its cool-running motor and preprogrammed settings. Although its lid is a bit difficult to remove, the Ascent A3500 is still worthy of inclusion due to its wireless connectivity and container recognition function. Again, several of our choices are equipped with bases that can automatically recognize the chosen container size, but I figured I'd call it out specifically on this one. I do think the Legacy 780 is a bit pricey, but its touchscreen interface is one of its redeeming qualities. Furthermore, the fact that the touchscreen is made from crack-resistant glass makes it a great option for constant use, setting it apart from some of its plastic-constructed counterparts. I also decided to add the CIA Professional Series, not just because it's backed by the Culinary Institute of America, but also because of its vented lid and ability to handle large batches of food. Maintained the Personal S55 as a good option for single users or those with very limited counter space. It's also a convenient option for on-the-go professionals, as the 20-ounce container can be used as a travel cup. Finally, maintained the Ascent A2300 for its built-in digital timer and mobile app with access to over 500 recipes.
