Which Vitamix to Buy in 2018 (choosing made easy!)


Hey it’s Lenny Gale with Life is
NOYOKE. This is the which Vitamix to buy in 2018 video. We’re going to have picks for you, the best for new owners, the upgrade pick, the budget pick, and in the description you’ll find promo code-embedded links to all of our picks. So do use those links in the
description when you make your pick for the best Vitamix for you in 2018. OK? OK here we go. OK, so the best Vitamix for new
owners in 2018 is the Vitamix 2500. So that’s an Ascent Series which
means it comes with a 10-year warranty, the container’s dishwasher safe and has the Smart Self Detect Technology, and it is Bluetooth compatible for the Smart
Scale App and scale. You don’t have to use that, but it’s there if you want it. All Ascent machines.
The A2500, it has the switch for on / off, a switch for pulse. It has a 1 through 10
variable speed dial and three preset programs which is really nice to
give you that walk-away blending we think is
so important for that optimal Vitamix-owning experience. What’s important to know about the
A2500 is you can do everything in this
machine. It’s like all the Vitamix machines, you can do everything. You can make all the things that you
would want to make. Smoothies, juices, ice creams, nut butters, flours, hot soups, everything. All machines can do everything. This one is right in the middle. It’s doesn’t have the
most features. It’s not the most scaled-back. It has a lot of things and is a really good fit for most people, especially new owners. So like all Ascents it’s really aesthetically pleasing. It looks good from all sides. And so that’s our pick the best Vitamix
for most new owners in 2018. The Vitamix A2500. Aright, also great is the
Vitamix A3300. So it’s an Ascent so it has all the
features. It also has, just like the A2500, and it has the 1 through 10
variable speed dial. The difference is that it has a Touch on / off button and a Touch pulse button. Now the A3300, it doesn’t have the one-touch
programs that the A2500 has, but it does have a programmable timer so you can set a time and it will count down, kind of like how you set a
microwave. 30 seconds, start, walk away. So you get that same walk-away
blending effect. So that’s why we say that the A3300
is also great because it does all the things that the A2500 does. The big difference is the Touch on and off and the Touch pulse button, and a different, sort of, method of getting that walk-away blending effect. I mean, for a while we said that the
A3300 is really savvy pick. It really comes down to personal
preference if you like the feel of the switches on the A2500. If you like the look of the Touch on and off on the Touch pulse
on the A3300 and are comfortable being in a little more control of that the walkaway blending effect, than the 3300 is for you. Either way they’re both great, and they’re both equally good picks
for new Vitamix owners in 2018. Okay, our our upgrade pick if you
want to get the Vitamix with all the bells and whistles, the latest and greatest, go with the Vitamix A3500, the Ascent Series. It’s just like the A3300 except for it has five preset programs. Also, and this is really important, it comes with your option, your choice, of true metal finishes. And this is really nice if you care a lot about what your Vitamix looks like on your counter. We always tell people that your
Vitamix is the thing that is going to live
on your counter. It’s going to be that constant
reminder. If you have a new kitchen, if you want something that really
fits in the scheme the design of your
kitchen, you have a few really good options that are really sharp and really high-design in those true metal finishes. The second benefit to the true metal
finish is it provides more sound dampening than any other model. And so the Vitamix A3500 if you get one of the true metal
finishes it’s going to be by far the quietest Vitamix that you can get. Now none of them are
quiet. They are powerful machines, but they are, the A3500 is definitely the least loud Vitamix that you can buy. So the upgrade pick the Vitamix
A3500 that’s what we have a great pick if you want the latest greatest all the
bells and whistles. Okay, the budget pick. The best Vitamix for someone who’s
on a budget is the Explorian E310. This comes with a 1 through 10 variable speed dial, an on off switch, a pulse switch. The five-year warranty, narrow, 48 ounce container, and it’s brand new. And so this was a machine that
people were asking for. Sort of a no-frills Vitamix. We love it. It’s perfect for people that come to
us. Our peers, who are still living on a budget or raising families, it’s a great way to get into the
Vitamix family to get that first Vitamix and really step up to better blends and doing more in the kitchen with less. Now you’ll notice that we’ve
recommended assent for almost all of these
picks. Now there’s a chance that you don’t
have access to a scent if you’re watching this
video from the UK. So which Vitamix should you get if you cannot get an Ascent or Explorian. We recommend getting the Vitamix Pro
750. We absolutely adore the Pro 750. It’s the G-Series, on / off switch, the Pulse switch 1 through 10 variable speeds, five pre-programmed settings, comes with that brush stainless
finish, and it does all the things really well. Don’t wait for Ascent if it’s not in your neighborhood yet. Get the Pro 750. We love it. If this wasn’t our full time job, helping people figure out which
Vitamix to buy making, Vitamix recipes, we definitely would have kept our
Pro 750. We would not have gotten rid of it
to get an Ascent. And that’s why we say to people who
have a Pro 750 or even who have a 5200, you don’t need to worry about
upgrading. Don’t feel the need to upgrade, it’s not necessary. Yeah unless you have someone you
want to hand your machine down to to get something with a different look. They really all perform at the same high level. So why do we have an Ascent if
wouldn’t have given up our Pro 750. Well it’s the same reason that we
recommend the Ascent to new owners. They come with longer warranty and they do more. So control the machine with our phone, to create custom
programs. And this is a functionality that’s
coming really soon. And I know this is intimidating to
certain folks. I want to make really clear: it’s
not necessary to utilize these technologies if you have an Ascent. It’s a bonus. Ascent’s can still work manually with the dial or with the preset programs. You don’t need a wifi connection to operate an Ascent machine. With the bluetooth stuff, you won’t even know that the
capability is there unless you want to use it. Also great, all the Legacy models. So G-Series, C-series. If you can find a deal on one of these Legacy Vitamix machines, go for it. Again, all Vitamix machines can do all the things. So if you find a great price on a
legacy machine, absolutely go for it. Otherwise, get something in the
Ascent series. That’s where Vitamix headquarters is putting all of its efforts into creating accessories supporting. It’s the Ascent Series. This Ascent Series is the future, so in most cases that’s where you should go. OK I want to do two more things. One, I want to start superlatives. Two, answer from FAQ’s. And then we’ll close this thing out.
Okay? So why not the A2300? We figure if you’re going to go with a budget pick go with the Explorian E310. It’s more economical, and it’s going to give you the same
results. When you’re ready you’ll get an
Ascent with that walk-away blending whatever. Feature. You’ll get push-button or, like, the countdown timer like the
microwave. Why not S-Series? S30, S50, S55. The personal blending machines. These are great as a secondary
Vitamix, something that’s you’re going to
throw in your suitcase and carry with you if you travel a
lot, if you live on the road. But for the most part for the
dollars you’re going to get a lot more out
of having a full size machine. W.
Hat about the Venturist V1200? OK so you’re a Costco member and you saw this demonstrated, you want to know about this machine. First of all go for it if a demonstrator is selling it to you. Absolutely. Give them the business. Do it. It’s a lot of value. But you have to know it’s probably
not the best deal because it’s packaged in a package, and you can get a better
price on a machine to get a Vitamix. You also have to know that the
design of it is Frankenstein. So it’s a Ascent inside with the G-series outside. The design of it is not, sort of, coherent. And the third thing about the Venturist 1200: It’s very loud. They are louder than most Vitamix machines. So the main point is that if you’re
new to Vitamix you don’t need everything in that package. You’re better off getting just the one thing that you do need and using that really well. And then if there comes a time when
you want a secondary container go for it. There’s always deals through direct sales on those containers. Okay, superlatives. Which Vitamix should I get if I live
alone? It’s just me. We recommend the E310. It’s got that narrow, low-profile 48-oz container. It’s great for making smaller smoothies and juices, smaller batches of nut butters and ice cream. It’s best for someone who lives alone. Which Vitamix should I get if I am visually impaired? Really easy. This is the Vitamix A2300. So this is that Ascent Series, that entry-level Ascent Series without preprogramed settings. It’s got the on / off switch, the pulse switch, and the one through 10 variable
speed dial. It’s the best machine to feel like you’re in control. Okay, the best Vitamix for a young family. We recommend the A3300 or the A3500. So what do these machines have in
common? These are the Ascent Series with the Touch on / off and the Touch pause button. The touch on / off makes it more
difficult for toddler fingers to turn the machine on. And second if they do, since the one through 10 dial is electronic, so it resets every time the machine is turned
off, you don’t run the risk of them
turning it on and then having it explode on variable speed 10. That’s the same thing with grandma. Yeah, like, it may seem silly to get
grandma of the latest and greatest all the bells and whistles Vitamix, but if it outlives her then you. No. The best Vitamix is for those want
to ease into a whole foods, plant based diet? All of them. That’s a trick question. That’s what we do. We show people
how to use the Vitamix to adopt a more of a whole food, plant based diet. So if you found this video helpful

  • Hahaha!! if it out lives her!! sooo funny! Btw, I just bought the Pro 300. I had the option of getting the A2500 or 3500 but I noticed that the 300 had the radial cooling fan and thermal protection system. How does this one compare to the ones you featured?

  • I’m trying to decide between A2300 or 5200.. I mainly use my blender to make smoothies/smoothie bowls and it’s just too much for my blender to handle. What do you suggest?

  • I’ve own the S series for several years now,much cheaper than the ones recommended. Love my S series,just wish small storage cups were available to purchase. Like the ones you get with magic bullet. The only thing I don’t like about Vitamix containers/cups is the wavy design on the inside of the cups. It’s makes scraping foods like nut butter a nuisance. So I bought a magic bullet for that jobπŸ˜•.

  • Hi from Toronto – thank you for your video, very helpful. I’ve been researching which machine to get and have narrowed it down between A2300 and 7500. What would your preference be? I’m not fussed about the Bluetooth but I do like the dishwasher safe container and 10 year warranty on the A2300. Any other real difference in your opinion? Also – your link does appear to work for Canada – I tested going to the checkout and saw the discount and free shipping applied but just wanted to double check on that. Thanks in advance!

  • Good day, I just received the a2300 TSC wish I had seen this before purchasing. Because I am thinking I would like the a2500 or a3300. I wanted to make soups and nut milk can I do this with the 2300? I can ship it back but have to do so in the next couple days. So if you see this can you please comment? Thank you kindly!

  • Waving hi to the baby 🍼 in the background congratulations! My baby is kicking and will b here in April ❀️

  • I have a 7500. Would one of the new containers with the clear top fit on to the 7500, the base of the container looks to be the same. Would I be able to buy one of the new containers for my 7500.

  • Hello i was looking into the 3500 Model but I want to know if Vitamix resolved the black specks being released in the water?

  • We got the V1200. So your saying it isn't that great of a machine? Should I return it for something less loud and more practical?

  • Hello beautiful πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• the only reason I watched this commercial was so I could stare into your eyes while you spoke and pretend I was in your kitchen and we were blending together

  • Just won a $500 gift card to Williams-Sonoma and I'm definitely using it to buy a Vitamix. Woohoo!! Now if I could only decide on which model I want. Keep going back and forth between A2300, A2500, and A3500.

    Seems like the 2300 would be a smart pick because the preset programs can be done with just knowing what speed and time to use. But the 3500 really looks like a boss. Hmm. Well, I feel like whichever one I pick it's going to be great.

    Thanks a bunch for all the videos and info on your website. Looks like it will be a truly invaluable resource. Can't wait to start my journey towards healthier eating.

  • So I had the vitamix 5200 or 7200 I can’t remember which, it’s a basic model and did the trick but extremely loud! I just bought the Venturist v1200 i was told it was quieter and also has the timers and presets. Is it not as good of a machine as my 5200? Would like your opinion before I trade out my old one.

  • The walk away feature is complete bs on a blender. Paying for something u don't need and will never use. Blending most things takes less than 30 seconds. That this guy keeps hyping this shows thay he's a freakin used car salesman. Vitamix is the best blender, no need to blow smoke with bs features.

  • I just purchased my third Vitamix blender, the A2500 in black. This new purchase is what prompted me to look at blender videos. You seem really down to earth and I really enjoyed your video. I also watched your E310 vs the A2500 comparison video. My previous models are the 5000 and the 5200, ironically I still own both, but wanted the newer model. I also purchased the scale. Keep up with the videos.

  • I'm not a fan of unnecessary technology. Blending…how hard is it? Β My truck has roll down windows and I've owned it for 24 years. I want: Simple, build like a brick shithouse. Stainless and glass (elemental). Fuck plastic. Too much of that garbage kicking around.

  • Just purchased a refurbished 500.. Cant wait for it to get here. Will be my first vitamix. Odd that it was cheaper then the refurbished 5200

  • Okay, so I like the premium Vitamix. I bought the a2500, BUT I didn’t know that I could essentially turn the entry level Vitamix, a2300 into a β€œprogrammed machine” with the perfect blend app! I actually would have rather had the ability to do a timer ( like the a3300) but, I don’t have that kind of cash for just a timer, so knowing that the ascent line has the same everything except for the features, I decided to go with the a2300! Pretty happy about this because I saved a lot. Also, I bought it from bed bath and beyond. I saved an ADDITIONAL 20% off with the beyond plus membership, AND you could just ask for a 20% coupon. Saved my self $140+! Thanks for helping me with my Vitamix purchase!

  • Which one is for commercial purpose and how much? How can I place order too, am in Nigeria – Africa. Thanks

  • If I buy the E310 and later decide 48oz isn't quite big enough, will a 64oz container be compatible or would I have to completely upgrade to the 5200?

  • Are you related to Sylvester Stallone? DANG! Yall look alike!!! Even have the same voice!

  • Still no Vakuum Vitamix? i am dissapointed, next year Vitamix dies for me if they dont create no vakuum adapter.

  • Thanks so much for helping with my pick! Too bad I cannot use your discount code – live in HK – but I will get the A2500 as you recommended. Thanks and good luck with the site!

  • Hi there. Do you have any thoughts on the Venturist V1200? It's on road show at Costco and it looks great but I already have one of the older legacy models and, it works great. thank you for your time!

  • I have a Vitamix Pro 750 it really is incredible. Big moan on Vitamix though, they purchased the Blend App off the Perfect Company In January and they requested that wired scales be disabled in the Blend App. My wired scales work great with the bake, drink apps but not with the blend. Bad move Vitamix!

  • I really wish they had a 32 oz container for the ascent. I love that size container for my 750 which I handed down to my son. Do you think they will ever make that size?

  • What if my husband can order an advance drink machine? He won a promo at work and get that or something else. I’ve always wanted a Vitamix but really couldn’t justify the cost with two little ones at this time. Does the advance drink machines do everything, like almond butter, etc?

  • the whole ascend series comes off as gimicky to me. It's like the blendtec devices with those displays and touchscreens. The displays are pointless to me, the only relevant info they can display is the remaining time on a blend which doesn't change anything about the wating time anyway. Displaying which programme has been chosen on a screen is really no more clear than just having a knob in a certain position. And if ypou forget which programme you've chosen in the few minutes that the blender will be running you probably shouldn't be using one. I also feel the touch buttons are less intuitive than the classic switches, although they're probably easier to clean.
    On noise; we've had an A3500 and a pro 750 side by side and they make the exact same sound.

  • Shit, but a 5200 and forget about it. The new stuff all uses the wide bottom pitchers making it tough to if not impossible to blend small serves. It's a true work horse.

  • ok , so i have been a vita mix user since forever! my first vitamix was a stainless container with a spout on it πŸ˜› i know!! ancient right?? i have owned and passed down several models since then andi just bought the A3500. love it . Here is my question and i wonder if anyone else has the same complaint i have. I make a smoothie every morning…have for years….. and i love the idea of making it in the container that i can put the cover on and take with me HOWEVER the 20 ounce is just too small. My smoothie fits into a 32 ounce cup and i make it in my regular 64 ounce container. Now, i have to either find a travel smoothie cup in a large size or use my 32 ounce plastic cup uncovered. I am considering buying the nutrabullet rx just for the to go smoothie. why doesnt vitamix make a larger blender cup? by the time i get in my frozen fruit, yogurt, greens powders, coconut oil m MTC oil, fiber, almond milk and any veggies i am at well over the 20 ounce capacity of the vitamix blender cup. PLEASE!!!! WHats the deal? make us a large smoothie blender cup!

  • I wish I saw this video before I purchased my Vitamix. I recently purchased the V1200 series package after viewing rhe demo ar Costco.

  • πŸ’°6 Huge Black Friday & Cyber Monday (plus Holiday) Sales happening now! Shop β†’ http://bit.ly/2fI7x8F See the Schedule here http://bit.ly/2zaL50n

  • Hi! I recently bought the reconditioned new "A2500" model at a great price online on Black Friday (I didn't received it yet!), but now I hesitate because the reconditioned "Standard Programs" is currently also at a great price. Both seem to have the same features (3 preset programs), but the A2500 is more "techno". The jars are also different and that's what makes me the most hesitant, because the jar of the Standard Programs seems more practical for small blend. Do you have a preference? Thank you πŸ™‚

  • I find this video entertaining, funny but most of all informative it really helped me narrow down the type of Vitamix I am going to buy. Thx

  • Hey Lenny,
    Thanks heaps for your tips which are extremely helpful for the first blender owner like me. Happy New Year from Sydney, Down Under πŸ™‚

  • I purchased the A2500 about 6 months ago. I’ve started to notice fairly quickly that it would constantly stop while blending thick but soft things like hummus or cashew cheese then it stopped working and we could exchange it for a new one. Just 4 days ago I made hummus and again right away it started to sound very bad, smell burnt and vibrate like it would fall off, then it shut down and said that there was an error. I have no idea why that always happened, I mean it’s mushy hummus, not even frozen food which it also should be able to handle. I could turn it on the next day but still it’s not okay for such an expensive blender, which has recipes for hummus and sorbet to not be able to handle those things. Have you any idea why that happened? I want to be able to blend my food without being scared that it will explode into my face.

  • How well do the older containers work on the new machines? They don't! Has Vitamix released different containers to work on the new machines – yet?

  • I'm British. Going to USA in the summer. Where in the USA can I buy this ? Actually… would you recommend buying it in the UK, or USA ?

  • For me and my wife bought A2500 and I really love it but I heard that the pro750 its one of the best and I really like it but in uk it’s out of stock 😟
    Also we bought as a gift certified TNC for a friend and she loves it .πŸ₯³
    My next for the near future it’s pro 750😎

  • Great video. Appreciate your time and effort in making it. It's THE best comparison demonstration I've seen on all the Vitamix blenders. I'm a "detail" person and I thought this video was perfect! Decided on the A3500 in copper. πŸ˜‰ On a different note, you totally remind me of TimothΓ©e Chalamet (yup, we have the same name 😏 ) especially in the little snippet of you playing your guitar. Love it!!! πŸ‘πŸΌ Oh, and I loved how your wife "reeled you in" on the grandma comment. Funny.

  • mkay really didnt like you here…. you're not helping anyone pick a vitamix. you just want to sell them all.
