Users Experience for Vitamix Professional Series 750 blender

So you’re on the hunt for a blender as well. Hope this review helps you decide if Vitamix Professional series 750 blender is the right for you, so you don’t have to waste your afternoon google searching Vitamix user forums like I did.

There are always two sides of the story. In our case, one side is manufacturer’s claims of a perfect product without a flaw. And a second side is an actual users experience that is a real picture of the product.

Today, we are going to look into users experience for the Vitamix Professional series 750 blender. To make your decision easier, I will go through most common and important pros, cons and facts that Vitamix users, including me have encountered.

I did the same type of review for Blendtec Total Classic Original blender. Since both brands are the best on the market, I figured the best thing to do is see what both have to offer and then make a comparison.

User experience


First things first, Vitamix Pro 750 is a fantastic machine that does not disappoint. However, there is a downside that every potential user needs to be aware of.

Are You Blending a Bunch?

I will start with that downside.

Vitamix Pro 750 blender is a commercial, professional graded blender. Meaning, it was made to blend large volumes and its 64 oz (2 liter) jar is huge.
If you are buying it for personal use, get the 32 oz or a 48 oz wet container and mini tamper in addition, because the 64 oz that comes with this incredible machine is ginormous and not good for small batches.  A glass or two of smoothie is considered a small amount.

The blades on the Vitamix Pro 750 blender sit high off the floor of the container, and when you try to do small batches, the blades just whir above the ingredients and you end up with a stuck things beneath the blades.

The 64 oz jar is big enough to make smoothies and goodies for the entire family in one go.

 

So if you usually make, or intend to make large batches, for example 4 cups of almonds to get 2 cups of almond butter, minimum, then you don’t need a smaller jar. And if you make smaller batches, then you want to consider getting additional jars.

Vitamix guys do say this is the “Professional” series (restaurant volume),

so just know they mean it!

Additional Smaller Jars

From my research, most and pretty much the only complaint about the Vitamix Professional series 750 was because of its large jar.

This is why lots of people buy additional smaller containers (32 or 48 oz).

You can get container for dry ingredients or/and a container for wet ingredients.

 

If you want to blend anything dry, like coffee or wheat, berries, buy the 32 oz dry container. And if you want to make yourself a glass of smoothie or anything wet, buy a 32 oz wet container.

What’s the Difference Between Wet and Dry Jar?

Very important question. The difference is in the blade.

It’s pretty straightforward; the wet jar comes with a blade that is better for wet products, such as smoothies, soups, etc. And the dry jar comes with a blade better for dry ingredients, like nuts, seeds, beans, coffee, grains, etc. So pay attention when ordering.

Personally, I ordered a 32 oz dry jar, because I make small batches of different nut butters, grind coffee, make flour, etc.

Yes, this is a downside. And a lot to buy. But..there’s no Mr Perfect Blender and you do need the right equipment to make this a good, life long investment. At least, that’s what I’ve been telling myself.

How Loud Is It?


It’s a 2.2 HP monster blender. It’s loud. But so is any other blender.

The blender has a solid metal shell with extra sound dampening material. Both, improvements from a previous model. The metal shell makes it more durable and the sound dampening material quieter than other versions. But its still loud. It shreds and breaks and liquefy solids, so yes, it has to be loud.

 

What About “Black Flecks”? Is It Solved?


Another improvement that Vitamix did, is solved the “black flecks” problem.

Those who follow Vitamix progress may be familiar with an issue they had in a previous model. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, here’s a little summary.

In a previous model, there was an issue with Teflon coming off the blade seal while blending and consequently getting into food. The users complained and promptly, Vitamix acknowledged and fixed the issue.

So the Vitamix Pro 750 blender comes with the new 64 oz BPA free/Tritan container with new blade seal that has eliminated the “black flecks (Teflon)” problem.

 

Does it Chop? Can I Use it As a Food Processor?


It can perform some functions of a food processor. It can chop, blend, mix and grind, but it won’t slice vegetables or shred cheese or other vegetables evenly like a food processor.

The pulse feature is the best way to dice and chop fruits and vegetables. To do that, use pulse in short, second long intervals. The lower the number, the coarser the chop.

 

I’ve Read it Heats Up Soups. Can I Cook With it?


While the blender will heat foods through friction, it won’t cook them. If you start with raw ingredients, they will taste like raw ingredients. You will still need to cook food, to avoid any potential hazards eating under cooked or raw food.
While almost all recipes require only 30-60 seconds of blending, heating up food in a blender takes more time, usually between 6-9 minutes.

 

Is it Easy to Use?


Yes, it is. The controls are very versatile yet easy to operate.

There are 5 pre-programmed buttons and a manual speed control. The 5 pre-programmed buttons are for making smoothies, soups, frozen deserts, purees and self-washing.

The manual speed control is for personal preferences achieving different textures. It can be rotated at any point during the blend, so its really up to you, what sort of blend do you wish to have.

The combination of pre-programmed and manual speed control gives you complete texture freedom

 

Is it Easy to Wash?


The blender has a self-cleaning cycle, which I think its meant more for the blades than the rest of the jar.

The way I clean it is,  rinse it straight after use and put it through self-clean cycle – fill halfway with warm water, add 2 drops of dish washing detergent and either use the preset clean program or variable speed and run for 30 seconds at max speed. Rinse one more time and leave to dry.

If you are making thicker blends, things are going to stick. On the blade and on the jar walls. Since the blades are sharp, be careful with your fingers. Let the self-clean cycle clean the blades and all you have to worry about is removing any left over from the sides.

 

Should You or Should You Not?


Vitamix Professional Series 750 blender is cream of the crop, specially when it comes to ..well everything. Ask any Vitamix user how he or she is happy with it and you’ll get wide smiles and sparkling eyes.

I’m sure that’s why you’re here, reading this – you did your research as well and set your eyes on the Vitamix Pro 750 blender. Because you’ve read and heard how good and reliable they are and you want to have one blender that will do its job without hiccups. But it’s not cheap..huh, it’s not cheap.

I finally forked over the money to buy this “investment”. I am used of being around good blenders that do their job without a problem. But I’ve never had a commercial grade blender in my kitchen, and boy, its not a vortex. It’s a tornado!

You have your favorite smoothie place in town, right?

Getting a Vitamix Pro 750 is having your favorite smoothie place in your kitchen,

on your kitchen counter.

 

All the tiny chia seeds or berries are blended. Every single ice cube is shattered to nothing but a refreshingly cool temperature. On top of that, a home ground flour is nice and smooth.

vitamix professional series 750

My main reason to get a Vitamix was simply to try a commercial graded blender and because its supposed to be better in blending thicker, dryer blends compared to Blendtec.

When you did your blender research there are two brands that stand out – Vitamix and Blendtec. I have both and performance wise, they are both incredible. You cannot go wrong with any of them.

But if you’re deciding between the two and money plays a big role in your decision, then get a Blendtec.

If not, get a Vitamix.

 

Why?  Blendtec performs just as well as Vitamix and is much cheaper. Both of them are powerful, reliable and both of them need a separate jar for small, dry blends.  They both have pre-programmed cycles, self-cleaning, pulse button and speed control. In my opinion they go hand in hand. The advantage I see with Vitamix is that reading product reviews and forums, it seems Vitamix has a better costumer service and overall score than Blendtec.

 

There really is no other con than the additional jar that I could come up with. It is a fantastic blender. Extremely functional, durable, easy to use and clean. It blends everything quick, smooth and without an effort.

The initial cost is high, but it does come with a 7-year warranty, and they are built to last, so its a worthwhile investment.

So yes, Vitamix Professional series 750 blender is worth the money.  It should be the last blender you ever buy.

  1. As i have observed, most reviews are somewhat boring, but you’ve found a way of making this interesting.

    The features are great, particularly the blades, laser cut and about 10cm in diameter is good stuff

    And it’s also worthy of note that it can perform basic duties of a food processor.

    Thanks Katya for the balanced expression of facts on the blender.

    I had a good read, and learnt a great deal

  2. Hi Katya,

    This is exactly what I like about articles like this one. It brings awareness of stuff I wouldn’t have found otherwise. You review about this professional blender was so thorough and very detailed.

    Usually I never comment on blogs but your article is so convincing that I never stop myself to say something about it. You’re doing a great job Man,Keep it up.

  3. Fantastic review for the Vitamix Professional series 750 blender! I went through two Blendtecs in under 3 years, so I’m looking into a higher-priced alternative. The Blendtec was great except the blade seal kept degrading and started to leak. I see that Vitamix was having a similar issue but now fixed, which is good to hear. I was fortunate enough that I bought my Blendtec blenders from Costco so they took them back no problem. Would there be another option for a smaller Vitamix instead of buying smaller jars?

    Reply
    • Hi Paul, yes, Vitamix have also a “space saving” line of blenders, that I believe are more focused on individuals or couples, where you don’t need to make a bucket of soup for lunch.

      The one that, users are happy with it – mainly making soup and smoothies, occasional dips, is smaller and already comes with 2 jars (20 oz and 40 oz) is Vitamix S30

      Hope this helps, and if you have any question let me know.

  4. Excellent review! You’ve answered every question I’ve ever had about this industrial style blender.  I’ve been wondering if its worth the price but it sounds like it would clearly be a great addition to kitchen!  Thanks for taking the time to compile all of this detailed information and you comments on customer service is super important to me!

    • Hi Brenda, no one wants to deal with costumer service because that only means something went wrong and you’re in grumpy mode anyways 🙂  This is why a good costumer service, that provides you with answers to your problem is worth a lot.

      Thanks for leaving a comment!

  5. Thank you for sharing ¨USERS EXPERIENCE FOR VITAMIX PROFESSIONAL SERIES 750 BLENDER¨ I´m debating whether to buy the Ascent A2500 or the 750.These are some of my thoughts. I find the Ascent 2500 to have the latest features compared to the 750. For instance, Self Detect jars and they seem focused on expanding the ¨Smart Detect¨ accessory line. Ascent is dishwasher safe and has a longer warranty (10 years). Also the Ascent cost less than the 750.On the other hand, I´m aware the Vitamix 750 is one of the best blenders on the market and really offers amazing performance for home use, as described in your article. I´m pretty sure the Vitamix  can truly handle any task and is very popular model among my friends. I like the choice of having presets as well as manual controls.I suppose I´ll flip a coin.

    • Hi Enrique, getting the right blender for yourself is important. You’re deciding between 2 Vitamix blenders, so don’t stress to much about it. Vitamix in general makes high quality, reliable blenders. 750 is a monster that will blend anything. It is sturdy and very analogue to use (which in my opinion is a good thing – less electronics to fail) and for some kitchens it can be an overkill. 

      But that doesn’t mean other Vitamix blenders don’t perform well. 

      If you feel A2500 would be a good fit for you, by all means, go for it. It’s less powerful but only slightly, it looks very sleek and the self-detect feature may improve it’s performance and cheaper.  As for electronics, as you said it comes with a 10 year warranty, which I believe is currently the longest warranty in this niche. They must be very confident about their product. 

      However, both, 750 and A2500 come with 64 oz jar and in either case you will probably want to get additional, smaller jars. And I’d say that’s what Vitamix expects with A2500, because if not, self-detect function has no meaning.

      In worst case scenario, you figure out A2500 isn’t what you wanted and then exchange it for 750. Easy peasy.

      I hope my 3rd person’s view helps 🙂

      If you have any questions let me know!

  6. Hi Katya I’ve enjoyed reading your in depth review of the Vitamix blender. I have a nutribullet blender but I guess there is no comparison between that and the Vitamix. My nutribullet struggles on all but the simple stuff like soft fruits.  The Vitamix looks a great  option for someone who is making smoothies, soups and frozen deserts. I like the self clean option; cleaning the blade and the container on my nutribullet is a pain. 

    Reply
    • Hi James, I actually never tried nutribullet – have heard a lot about it, mostly mixed feelings, but never gave it a go. If you need a blender for smoothies mostly, I’d recommend you to check out Vitamix 5200. It’s not such an overachiever as pro 750, cheaper and still a darn capable blender that will make a silky smoothie out of anything.

      Best,

  7. I am impressed with this review. I would not tag it as a review, I would rank it as a manual. Why it covers all you would want to know about the Vitamin Professional Series 750. It also guides you to make the decision on whether you need this monster blender. 

    I liked the How loud it is part. I hate noisy things in the house. The fact that it is quieter compared to other versions, that is catchy for me. Thank you for the review.

    • Thank you Michael, you made my day, haha!

      Yes, compared to other blender the 750 doesn’t have as much of a roar as you’d expect it. I also compared it to my mom’s Blendtec – Vitamix has a much, much! smoother run.

      Vitamix is like: “You wish to blend this? Leave it with me for a minute, I’ll take care of it. There you go.”

      and Blendtec (a fantastic machine non the less) is like: “You wanna blend this?! RooaaaarRR! Here! Done! More?!  Sure! RRroooaaaAAAR! HahahHAH, I’m Hulk!”

      Blenders, am I right?

  8. I used to have a Vitamix series 750 and I can’t speak highly enough of it. I Used it in my bistro when I had it, I never had a problem with it at all. 

    It particularly came into its own with the smoothies and was really popular with the kids! I never used it to warm anything up due the fact you mentioned in the post that it won’t cook stuff only heat it.

    I have had other models before but never had a problem with black flecks but its good that Vitamix listened to customers and improved it’s product.

    • Hi Darren, thanks for your feedback on your Vitamix blender. It’s reassuring to hear praise from a pro user 🙂

      A friend of mine bought it recently as well and she text me nearly every week about how much in love she is with it!

  10. I really want to thank you for creating such a beautiful website and writing this awesome article on the vitamix professional series 750 blender.
