Design and features:

The machine is a sturdy built, no doubt. You see the black base of it and under the hood 2.2 horsepower motor. The black-based made it look more like a Swiss army knife. The machine is capable of doing other dozens of job other than processing and blending, such as kneads, chop food, pulverizing nuts into butter, kneading the dough and much more.

When you look at the features and functions and compare them to the older model 750, they are almost the same. Both come with the same pulse function and preprogrammed three settings.

But, you see a new addition; the digital component was not there what has been added in this latest addition.

If you look at the front face of the machine, it comes with a digital timer that offers you a visual look. You are not required to hold a stopwatch to track you’re processing; the digital timer does a great job, get the right use of it.

The base of the motor automatically detects the type of the container and adjusts the settings and maximum blend time accordingly.

Vitamix has made the interface as simple as it should be. The interface has been added with a dial and toggle switches. You can use the toggle switches to switch to the variable speed of the machine, and on the right side, you can switch to preprogrammed settings to get the job done in seconds. On the right site, it has been embedded with switch option and right side with a pulse feature. The interface is much similar to the 5300, 5200 and 750, but here it is made much sleek and modern.

The three preprogrammed functions offer:

  1. Smoothies
  2. Hot Soups
  3. Frozen desserts

The addition of the digital timer has given the machine a new boost, another handy and impressive feature to allow the user to sits and track you’re blending.

You do not need to set the timer for recipes manually; it is the right there built in the blender.

The machine does not have any Wi-Fi, but when you simply put any type of the blender on it, it automatically adjusts the program and switches the setting depending on the container you use. The machine comes with a 64-ounce low profile pitcher, which can offer food processing for a larger family.

This is one of the most versatile blenders I ever come across, every feature just added perfectly. I have not seen any machine making this range of smoothies that efficiently.

The blender is pretty much capable of blending anything. You can have smoothies, sauces, baby food, dressing, sauces, and frozen dessert and much more using the machine.

You even can have this beast for making pizza and preparing homemade bread.

The machine’s container is very easy to clean. You cannot remove the blades but using a special wrench. Just fill the machine with water and add some liquid detergent and blend it. Or you can use the preprogrammed smoothies preset to get it cleaned with one click.

When the smoothie cycles finishes, rinse it and remove all soapy residue.
