The Vitamix® ASCENT® Series Blenders combine state-of-the-art design with power and precision, along with innovative features that elevate the blending experience. The machines are compatible with a family of SELF-DETECT™ containers, allowing users to create multiple batch sizes with a single machine, then immediately store, serve or take them to go. With SELF-DETECT, powered through Near Field Communication (NFC), the machines will recognize the selected container size and adjust the blend time accordingly. In addition, the series includes a lid interlock system that prevents the blenders from operating if the lid and container are not properly secured. A digital timer helps monitor each blend.
In Europe, the series includes three models: the A2300i and A2500i feature classic controls, whereas the A3500i is equipped with a sleek touchscreen. The A2500i offers program settings for smoothies, hot soups and frozen desserts. The A3500i adds programs for dips and spreads as well as self-cleaning. Its timer can also be programmed to stop the machine automatically. The A2300i and A2500i are available in Black, Red, White and Slate, the A3500i in a Brushed Stainless Metal Finish.
