Vitamix Ascent looks nice and modern and you can choose one of the four color options of slate (062068), black (061007), white (062069) and red (062067). It weighs 11.86 pounds, measures 20.5 x 7.2 x 8.8 inches and includes a 4 feet long cord. It comes with three program settings for making smoothies, frozen desserts and hot soups. You can blend, grind, make beautiful steaming soups and ice cream on those hot summer days. With these settings, you will get consistent results every single time and you can just walk away and let the blender do the work. You have the variable 1-10 speed control dial and the pulse option so you have total control and can adjust the texture the way you want.
There is a new built-in digital timer at the front and shows you how much time you have left. It is easy to clean as the containers are safe for the dishwasher and have the self-cleaning feature so you can just add some warm water and soap and run it for only a minute. It is the first of its kind that comes with different size self-detect containers that are wireless compatible. So when you place one of the containers the base machine section will read and adjust automatically to the container size, do the work and stop the process once done.
You can make baby food, purees, peanut and other nut butter, nut milk, hemp milk, frozen desserts, batters, dips, beautiful cold and hot soups and smoothies with different flavors. It is simple to use, runs surprisingly quietly so you do not have to suffer the noise of a blender, will nicely enhance the flavors of your recipe, texture turns out great consistently. It does the job very quickly, is conveniently programmable, has plenty of power. The buttons and dials are easy to handle even by your kids and the unit is safe to use. In the package, you will find the motor base, a container, low-profile tamper and the Ascent Series cookbook.
One of the customers mentioned the large container not being very suitable for single serve smoothies but the one you’re getting in this package is not too big for processing small amounts of ingredients and ice efficiently. Reviews online are very positive and it scores 5 out of 5 on Amazon.com on the day of this review. A few people even commented that this is by far the best blender they have ever owned, and that should say something. It is a made in USA product with Vitamix headquarters in Ohio and is offered with an impressive 10-year full warranty that covers labor, parts and proper operation. It will not only look good on your counter but also happens to be one of those awesome small kitchen appliances that will help you create tasty recipes.
