    I have used my Vitamix almost every day since I recently purchased it. It is capable of doing everything a regular blender can do plus so much more and so much better! Price is more expensive but so understandable. I’ve made dips, soups, crushed iced for the smoothies which I made directly afterward, green juices with my fresh, washed vegetables(skin and all) etc. and never worried about whatever it was having lumps(unless I wanted it too) or not being processed correctly. Total control, and worry free perfection. Just what I need, especially now! It is the ultimate workhorse and I expect I’ll have it for many years and pass it down!

    Best Purchase!

    I'll say one thing. I've never used a blender so much in my life until I bought this. I've always wanted a Vitamix, but didn't want to spend the money until one day I just went for it. I bought a Ninja Chef after years of using standard blenders. It was nice, but I felt it was too bulky and very loud. Hardly used it. After about a year I bought a KitchenAid K400 series blender which does much that the Vitamix does. It makes soups, but I believe it was not designed for that. Finally I bought this Vitamix Ascent A2300. Once I made my first tomato soup in this thing, I was amazed and how creamy smooth it turned out! The smoothest tomato soup I've ever eaten. Smoothies are silky smooth with no chunks. I've placed whole apples, stem and all. I've placed pineapple with the core. Everything was liquified! If you can get over the price take, you will not be sorry you purchased this thing!

    Takes some getting used to

    I purchased this because I was tired of buying new Nutribullet every couple of years and replacement parts in between. I also bought the blending cup starter set and blending bowls. First it isn’t clear on Vitamix website if you need a separate base for the bowls and cups (I.e 3 bases) You don’t - the bowls and cups use the same base. My smoothies have never been so smooth. Not even any fine chunks from seeds. I made broccoli soup with it yesterday and it was awesome! Not what I purchased it for but will definitely try some additional soup recipes from Vitamix website Some challenges- Capacity of the blending cup is smaller than the nutribullet and ingredients need to go in in a specific order so it took a few tries to fine tune my ingredients. You have to align the arrow on the base with the arrow on the cup or it won’t turn on. It took many tries and some swear words at first to get the arrows aligned. 1. The arrow on the cup is practically invisible once it’s full. I solved this by marking the outside with a sharpie. 2. I now start by aligning the triangle symbol on top of the base (see attached photo) with the mark in the cup and that seems to get them close enough to work

    Cooking with a blender?

    Got this as a gift for my daughter and son-in-law. They absolutely love it. Great smoothies and crushes ice easily. I can’t believe that they can actually make soup in it - turns at such a high speed that it generates enough heat to cook soup from scratch. It is pricey, but it real appears to be commercial grade.

    Factory design defect or something normal?

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    Ascent containers are sold as dishwasher safe! I bought my blender a month ago, I haven't used it often. However from the first time I washed it, I noticed there was water trapped at the container bottom between the blade and the rubber. I contacted Vitamix because I concerned about the possibility of mold or rust but Vitamix claims this is normal IF the container is placed into a sink of water after blending . In my case it did not happen like that, I just put it into the dishwasher however I decided to follow the instructions they recommended. They recommended me run it for about 1-2 minutes on high speed (it work). And more extra steps just to clean it. Every time I use and wash it, the same thing happens. If you want to remove the water completely you have to disassemble it. Take and consideration removing the retaining nut voids warranty according the manual. So I assume this is a container design defect and it is definitely NOT dishwasher safe. It seems that it is something common according to I read in several reviews. I contacted Best Buy for request a return for a defective item. They didn't want to take responsibility either, the return date ended two days ago so I can't return it. For me it's not worth paying $ 400 for a blender that I have to take apart every time I clean it.

    Good product, phone app works well with A2300 model, because A2300 doesn’t have pre-programed dial. The vitamax app works well with A2300.

    I love this for making bagels. I don’t have to knead the dough by hand and it takes all the work the hard work out. However unless you’re using it everyday, it’s really not worth the price tag. I’ve owned the Ninja and couldn’t really tell a huge difference../except the price tag

    Best blender I’ve used

    It’s pricey but the best blender I’ve ever used. It makes the Ninja I had which I thought was a great blender until I used the Vitamix. The Ninja relied on extremely sharp blades where the Vitamix uses pure power with blunter blades. I was always weary of cutting myself with the Ninja. Also you can’t beat the 10 year warranty.

    Vitamix has been on my wish list for years... so I finally decided to wait no longer. It performs even better than I imagined. Smoothies ( yes, the ice is totally blended!) soups (hot), dough for bread or cookies, and that is just the beginning! If you are trying to decide on Vitamix vs. Any Other Brand the decision is easy.. nothing beats the Vitamix!

    This was my second Vitamix purchase, I still have the first one and got a second one for my small business. These blenders are on the expensive side but they are worth the purchase. They last long and deliver.
