I love how a quality blender transforms my kitchen and opens up delicious new possibilities at the push of a button. Vitamix is considered one of the best options for blending. With several models to choose from, Vitamix 750 has something that can fit almost any budget.

N ow offering inexpensive options at stores like Target or online, and even refurbished models at a reduced cost which can be purchased “certified refurbished” directly via the Vitamix website.

Customer service is always available to assist with any issues, which explains the quality reputation. The Professional Series 750 is one of Vitamix’s smaller models in stature, but what it lacks in height, it certainly does not lack in power or usefulness.

Vitamix produces power, reliability, and dependability for the price, and stands behind their products.

It can be a little tricky to understand how Vitamix organizes its products. Essentially, there are three key series: the C-series, Professional Series, and Ascent series.

The Ascent line is the latest line from Vitamix, and it offers modern features like wireless connectivity and touch screens.

If you are serious about your cooking, I recommend the Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender. Let’s look at why.

Vitamix 750 Blender Ratings

Let’s get to grips with the Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender.

The 750 performs well in all key areas.

Design – 8/10

The Professional Series 750 offers four colors to choose from: Black, Brushed Stainless Metal, Candy Apple Red, or Pearl Gray) which will match any kitchen.

This blender has a professional and sleek yet commercial look and design to go along with its reputation.

There’s nothing that particularly stands out about the appearance, and though it is one of the smaller Vitamix models, compared to cheaper blenders, it is a bit bulkier and boxier.

Features – 10/10

Reliable features provide complete control to deliver consistent results. I love that the 2.2 horsepower motor makes quick work of the toughest produce.

This blender has five pre-programmed settings, which take the guesswork out of achieving the perfect texture for Smoothies, Hot Soups, Frozen Desserts, Purees, and Cleaning. Each of these five presets automatically shuts off automatically when finished.

Also, there are ten variable speeds you can manually select on the dial, which allow for customized blending, as well as a pulse button chopping or chunkier sauces.

This model also has an auto shut off the motor, which helps prevent overheating.

Performance – 9/10

This blender has a 2.2 peak horsepower motor that powers through whatever foods you throw inside.

Due to the power, if you’ve blended for longer than one minute, the motor will automatically shut off to allow itself to cool down.

This is a beautiful protective measure, but can be frustrating; however, due to the power, this does not frequently happen, as it powers through most ingredients quite quickly and with ease.

Usability – 10

From typical blender recipes like soups, sauces, and smoothies to more complex nut butters, ice creams, and even chopping delicate chunky salsas or grinding spices or grains, this blender can be used to complete nearly all of your kitchen tasks.

If it cannot be achieved with the container that it comes with, additional compatible accessories can be purchased as well.

Pros

  • Helpful pre-programmed settings
  • Incredibly powerful
  • Large container
  • Not as noisy and competing blenders
  • Compact and convenient size
  • Consistent results across the board
  • Durable and long-lasting
  • Multiple functions
  • Easy to clean
  • Professional look
  • Excellent warranty

Cons

  • Noisy
  • Relatively Heavy
  • Low Profile Container Requires More Ingredients To Blend Efficiently
  • Expensive
  • Motor gets hot quickly
  • The plastic container gets cloudy
  • Certain functions don’t work as well if you do not use the tamper to push ingredients down

The Bottom Line

This blender is robust, with a high horsepower, which explains and almost excuses the excessive noise. Though it is bulky and a little heavy compared to cheaper blenders, if you can find the room, it looks very sleek on your countertop, and the parts are well made.

The only significant drawbacks are the price tag, noise, and the speed with which the motor heats up, but overall, it is durable, functional, and well worth the price tag.

The lower profile, high capacity 64oz. container is wider at the base, and for that reason, requires at least 3 to 4 cups of ingredients to cover the blades fully.

Once the blades are covered, no ingredient splashback takes place, and there will be no hard to blend lumps.

Unfortunately, the features and reliability of a Vitamix do come with a heftier price tag than your typical blender.

Who Should Use the Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender?

The Vitamix 750 is the perfect blender for someone looking for versatility, dependability, and power in a blender.

The machine is ideal for someone looking to simplify their kitchen appliances by paring down to just one versatile machine that can handle just about every task.

This blender works as well for a cook who uses their blender three times per day as the person who uses it a few times per week to make the occasional smoothie or sauce.

This model, in particular, would not be suitable for those on a budget, though financing options are available on the Vitamix website, and certified reconditioned models can be purchased.

This blender would also probably not make sense for someone who has a multitude of small kitchen appliances that does not want to downsize the number of tools they currently utilize.

This blender is also probably not the best choice for someone who needs to make smaller batches of recipes, as the low profile container does require 3-4 cups of ingredients for the right blend.

However, this can be rectified by purchasing an additional smaller 32 oz. container.

If you only use a blender occasionally, you might want to look at some more cost-effective alternatives.

There are lots of options out there, and you could explore some of the other blenders in the Vitamix range. (I will take a look at some comparisons soon, so stick around!)

How to Use the Vitamix Professional Series 750

One of the most important things to remember when using your Vitamix or any other blender is to pour liquid ingredients in first.;

Not only does this make it easy to measure because the container has fluid ounces marked on the side of the jar, but it also allows the solid ingredients (such as frozen fruit, seeds, nuts, etc.) to integrate smoothly into the liquid and blend evenly.

Once the blender is plugged in, add your liquids to the container first (if using liquids) and then your more solid ingredients.

Remember to securely attach your lid (and the center cap!) before attaching the container to the base and turning the dial to select one of the desired preset blend techniques or a manual power level from 1-10.

Then switch the side power button to the on position. Your blender will automatically stop when it is thoroughly blended if you’ve selected a preset.

If you have solid ingredients that do not want to incorporate without coaxing, the plastic tamper that comes with your blender can be used by removing the center cap from your blender container lid and placing the tamper in to help push food down.;

Be cautious not to stick tamper into your blended mixture with the power on, as the blade WILL destroy your tamper.

If you opt-out of a pre-set program, it is important to start at power level 1 and work up gradually to your desired power level.

Also, do not allow your machine to blend for longer than one minute at a time, as it will not automatically shut off as a pre-set program will.

You can prevent the machine from sensing that it is reaching temperatures that are too hot for the motor and shutting down to cool off by simply paying attention to the time when manually blending.

However, if you do forget, as mentioned, the blender will sense when the motor is reaching a dangerous temperature and will shut down to cool off and will not allow you to turn the machine back on until the motor is at a safe blending temperature.

How to Clean the Vitamix 750 Blender?

Keeping your Vitamix clean is a breeze with the preset cleaning setting. When you are finished blending, you can empty and rinse your container, and switch your Vitamix to the bottom setting (it looks like soap bubbles!).

Add a squeeze of dish soap into your container along with enough hot water to cover the blades, replace the lid and lid plug, and turn the power on.

Once the cleaning cycle is finished, the power will automatically shut off. You can then pour out the hot soapy water and rinse again.

I highly recommend drying the metal portion of the blade (carefully) by hand, as well as the bottom of the container, as they tend to rust if they are not properly dry.

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender Review

Vitamix is one of the biggest names when it comes to blenders – the company has been creating high-performance blenders since 1921! The Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender is the product of a century of experience and hard work – and it shows.

The 750 is the flagship blender in the Professional Series. The blender can offer a commercial blending experience in your own home with 2.2 horsepower and a sturdy motor.

This reliable blender has variable speed settings and preset buttons for smoothies, frozen desserts, soups, purees, and self-cleaning.

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 has ten variable speeds, which allows you to use this blender as a more powerful (and less durable) version of your typical $50-100 blender.

Additionally, the 5 presets aid the home cook in performing these everyday tasks: smoothies, hot soups, frozen desserts, purees, and cleaning. The pulse button makes quick work of chunkier sauces and chopping.

A widespread concern with Vitamix blenders is the cost. Many people wonder, “is this blender really worth the price?” The answer, in all honesty, is, “it depends.

If you can make use of a blender daily, spending more money on a quality product is a good idea.

Vitamix blenders have power and can assist you in many aspects of your food preparation – from everyday items like smoothies, batters, or sauces, to more complex items such as nut butters, ice creams, nut milks, etc.

The Vitamix is durable, with no cheap plastic parts, and a warranty to guarantee functionality. This blender can replace nearly all of your small kitchen appliances if you wish.

Another common concern with more powerful blenders is the noise level. Yes, this blender is noisy. Blending cycles are relatively short, however, and with a motor, this powerful, noise is definitely to be expected.

All Vitamix blenders fall into the “safe” range of decibels (between 80-90 decibels), with this Vitamix Professional Series 750 being one of the two quietest models, landing in the 88-89 decibel range.

It is comparable to your average vacuum cleaner, which runs at around 85 decibels. The true metal finishes on this blender aids in reducing the noise.

If you want to reduce the sound further, you can place your blender further from surrounding walls and/or add a piece of carpet or a mat beneath your blender.

Vitamix 750 Features

  • Motor Power – it comes with a 2.2 peak horsepower motor that provides a lot of power. Quality materials were used to build the motor, too, meaning that it will last a long time without a drop in performance.
  • Control Settings – this blender has five presets on the left side, and each cycle automatically shuts off once finished, as well as the option to manually choose speed. I personally love analog controls like switches and dials. The 750 feels great and sturdy even while it’s in action. The blender comes with physical switches and dials that feel satisfying to use. They are durable and long-lasting, too.
  • Variable Speeds – 10 variable speeds
  • Pulse Button – yes, this model has a manual pulse button
  • Blades – the laser-cut stainless steel 4-inches long blades hit a top speed of 270mph and make quick work of even the toughest frozen foods. The powerful blades make it simple to blend larger foods, saving you time and effort.
  • Drive Socket – comes with a quality drive socket that is durable and functional (you can also replace it if necessary).
  • Preset Programs – 5 preset programs (Smoothies, Hot Soup, Frozen Desserts, Purees, Clean)
  • Ice Crushing – this blender crushes ice using the pulse button with ease
  • Noise Level – yes, this blender is very noisy, at about 88-89 decibels, comparable to a vacuum cleaner or most other powerful blenders.
  • Accessories – this blender comes with a plastic tamper, which helps push down-solid ingredients when making smoothies, ice cream, etc.
  • Safety – this blender is very powerful but comes with a tamper to discourage the user from placing anything inappropriate down into the container. Additionally, the blender will shut off if it is in danger of overheating, which is an excellent safety feature.
  • Warranty – Vitamix has a seven-year warranty on its products that covers your blender from anything not caused by improper use.

    Vitamix will repair, reimburse, or replace defective components or damage as a result of normal wear and tear. For $75 you can extend your warranty by another three years.

Vitamix 750 Performance

We have covered the key features. But how exactly did those features perform for me?

  • Smoothiesthis blender has a smoothie setting that works like a dream. However, it must be filled with 3-4 cups of ingredients to blend properly.

    A standard size smaller 32 oz. container is also available for purchase separately, which somewhat rectifies this issue.
  • Crushing Ice & Frozen Fruits – the 2.2 peak horsepower motor has no problem crushing ice or frozen fruits on the pulse setting.

    Making frozen desserts like sweet banana cream or traditional ice cream is also relatively foolproof with this blender.

    Though due to the low profile container, use of the tamper to “help” the frozen fruit or other solid ingredients like ice down into the blend, as well as being sure to add enough liquid first, are both keys to successful blending.

    Ice cream and other recipes are easy to find and follow right on the Vitamix website.
  • Pureeing – with a specific preset for pureeing, this blender powers through and automatically shuts off at the perfect consistency.
  • Chopping – the pulse option allows you to chop your ingredients as coarsely or finely as you wish.
  • Grinding – the ten variable speeds allow for grinding things like coffee, dry beans, grains, seeds, or seasonings with ease and at the perfect consistency. Making fine or coarse grain cornmeal is a breeze.
  • Hot Food – With a removable top plug, you can easily pour in hot foods to blend and not worry about removing the entire top to release any pressure.

    Additionally, the powerful motor allows you to heat food from cold to boiling in just 6 minutes!
  • Nut Butter and Nut Milk is a breeze using this powerful blender. Nut milks can be made easily in 45 seconds by building up from power setting 1 to power setting ten gradually.

    Nut butter is also made quickly, but best either with added oil or after presoaking nuts in water.

    Recipes for both can be found on the Vitamix website, and Vitamix always offers tips and tricks to using their machine by calling the customer service telephone number if you have any difficulties.
  • Though this product will not replace a traditional juicer, it will completely liquefy fruits and vegetables.

    If pulp does not bother you, feel free to utilize this blender to make juice. Straining the juice is also always an option.

Vitamix 750 Usability

  • The ease of use with this blender is terrific. You can pretty much turn it on, and it does the job, whether it be completing a pre-set cycle all on its own, or using a manual power setting from 1-10.
  • Assembly and disassembly of this blender are not tricky at all. There are only six parts total (blender base, blender lid, lid cap, container, and tamper), which all come apart and go back together with ease.
  • This blender is super easy to clean, as it has a preset cleaning cycle right on the blender face. Add hot water and a small squeeze of dish soap put the lid on tightly, turn the cleaning cycle on, rinse when finished.

    Should you find a stickier food still hiding beneath the blades following a clean cycle, a small brush can easily remove the food mentioned above particles.
  • The self-cleaning setting on this blender works wonderfully, though sometimes stickier foods can tend to stick underneath the blades, and you have to use a brush to get those out manually.
  • The Vitamix Professional Series 750, just like all of the other classic blenders, is made of quality materials.

    The plastic knobs, container, and blender lid cap are not thin and cheap, the lid itself is durable, and though the container does cloud up after extended use, it too is durable plastic.

    The blades are high-quality steel, as well as the components of the base. Take care to dry off any metal parts of the base and container inside and out, however, as they will quickly rust if you do dry not correctly.

    The motor itself and base components also seem to be quite durable, as the motor will shut off before overheating to save the trouble of a blown blender motor.

What Do Customers Think About the Vitamix 750?

What do the owners of the Vitamix 750 have to say? Here’s a compilation of common remarks from owners around the web.

A quick search of the internet yields very positive and consistent five-star reviews across multiple sites online. Google, Amazon, Bed Bath and Beyond, Williams Sonoma, as well as the Vitamix website all have nearly 2000 reviews with five-star ratings.

Lots of reviewers from around the web say that they were anxious about the price before buying the 750. The great news is that almost every user then says that the investment was worth it!

Some owners even go as far as to say that the blender is life-changing. The 750 offers a completely different experience to cheap and mid-range blenders.

Many reviewers explain that the 750 is an entirely different machine that is head and shoulders above competing blenders.

Some standout comments I liked are:

  • The 750 Pro is life-changing and truly pulverizes things put into it.
  • The blender is very easy to use and helps me create lots of smoothies and so much more.
  • This blender is staggeringly powerful.
  • The 750 is a great all-rounder and reliable companion.

    Below you will find a list of any pros and cons which were commonly mentioned.

    Positives

    • Across the board, customers are impressed by the versatility of this machine in all of the jobs it can conquer in your kitchen.
    • Additionally, Vitamix customers love this model for its ease of use and ease of cleaning with the self-clean feature.
    • Durability and Warranty – people are impressed by the seven-year warranty and see that as a testament to how long Vitamix expects this blender to last for a consumer. It passes the durability test as a result of the blender design and quality of materials used.

    Negatives

    • A consistent, though the not common complaint, is an uneven blend, which, however, is due to the low-profile container design. Users must place at least 3 cups of ingredients into the blender to fully cover the blade, and then even blending is achieved. You can also purchase a smaller, 32 oz. container that would solve any issues if a user did not want to make a large amount of food or drink.
    • Noisy – many people noted that this machine was loud, and when comparing to less powerful motors, it could be off-putting, but in the same breath, people do state that they do expect a blender, especially one with such high power, to be loud.
    • Some users have complained that the blades are not removable, as stickier ingredients can get stuck beneath blades, even on the self-cleaning setting. However, other users saw this as a positive, as removing blades to clean can be dangerous, and they preferred to take the extra step and use a brush beneath blades if need be.
    • People are consistently disappointed with the fact that the plastic blending container becomes cloudy after repeated use.

    How does Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender Compare to Other Vitamix Models?

    Are you not sure if the 750 is the right Vitamix model for you? Here’s a look at how it measures up against some of the alternatives.

    The best and most good blenders to compare to the Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blenders would be the other five blenders in the “Classic Series.” Below you will find comparisons from least expensive to most expensive.

    Vitamix Professional Series 750 vs. Vitamix E310

    The E310 has a classic 48oz., 10.25” height container, versus the low profile 64oz., 10.1” height container of the Professional Series 750.

    While they both share variable speed and a pulse control, the Vitamix 300 blenders lack the five pre-programmed functions that can help you to create perfect smoothies, frozen desserts, soups, and purees. With the 300, you have to use the ten variable speeds and pulse function.

    The Professional Series 750 has a 2.2 HP, four color choices, and a 6 ft. cord while the E310 has 2.0 HP, three color choices, and a 4.5 ft cord.

    Sizes are fairly comparable, but the Professional Series 750 is slightly smaller overall, with an 8.5”length and 17.25” H versus the 11” length and 18” H of the E310.

    Finally, of the two, only the Professional Series 750 can be purchased certified reconditioned.

    Overall, though the E310 is more affordable, it is still going to cost you a bit of money.

    If you can afford the $250 jump to the Professional Series 750 (or only spend $100 more for certified reconditioned), it has more power, more features. It will fit on countertops slightly better than the E310.

    Vitamix Professional Series 750 vs. Vitamix 5200 Standard

    The 5200 has a classic 64oz., 10.25” H container, versus the low profile 64oz., 10.1” H container of the Professional Series 750.

    While they both share variable speed and a pulse control, the Professional Series 750 additionally has five preprogrammed settings, while the 5200 has ten variable speeds.

    The Vitamix 5200 comes with a slightly weaker 2.0 HP motor and its cooling function is less effective. This means the 5200 cannot blend as hard and as long as the more powerful 750.

    The 750 container is slightly wider, too, but this slight difference has a significant impact on the quality of your blending results.

    The Professional Series 750 is smaller with the container overall, with an 8.5” L and 17.25” H versus the 20.5” length and 9.4” L and 17.5” H of the 750.

    Overall, though the 5200 is slightly more affordable, it is still going to cost you a bit of money and if you can afford the $70 jump to the Professional Series 750 (or spend only $50 more for certified reconditioned), it has more power, more features.

    It will fit on countertops and underneath cabinets. Due to the similarities in the features of the E310 and 5200, I’d still lean toward spending a bit more on the Professional Series 750.

    Vitamix Professional Series 750 vs. Vitamix 7500

    The 7500 has the same low profile 64oz., 10.25” H container of the Professional Series 750.

    While they both share variable speed and a pulse control, the Professional Series 750 additionally has five preprogrammed settings, while the 7500 has the same ten variable speeds as the previous two models.

    The Professional Series 750 has a 2.2 HP, four color choices, and a 6 ft. cord while the 7500 has 2.2 HP, three color choices, and a 6 ft cord.

    Overall, though the 7500 is slightly more affordable, it is still going to cost you a bit of money and if you can afford the $70 jump to the Professional Series 750 (or $500 total for a certified reconditioned 750), it has more features and one more color choice.

    Due to the similarities in the features of the E310, 5200, and 7500, I’d still lean toward spending a bit more on the Professional Series 750.

    Vitamix Professional Series 750 vs. Vitamix 7500 with Aer Disc

    The 7500 has the same low profile 64oz., 10.25″H container of the Professional Series 750, but the Aer Disc comes with an additional container that allows you to whip, muddle, foam, and emulsify.

    While they both share variable speed and a pulse control, the Professional Series 750 additionally has five preprogrammed settings, while the 7500 has the same ten variable speeds as the previous two models.

    The Professional Series 750 has a 2.2 HP, four color choices, and a 6 ft. cord while the 7500 has 2.2 HP, three color choices, and a 6 ft cord.

    Overall, you are getting the same machine as the 7500, but with an additional container that allows for four new blending techniques that the 750 container does not offer.

    The Aer Disc Container is compatible with all of the classic Vitamix models mentioned here. At the $144.95 price tag, it could be worth purchasing separately from the Professional Series 750 if you do want the extra preprogrammed settings.

    If you can survive with the ten variable speeds offered by the 7500, it’s worth saving a few hundred dollars and just purchasing the Vitamix 7500 wit Aer Disc package.

    Vitamix Professional Series 750 vs. Vitamix 780

    The 750 and 780 are very similar blenders. Both of these blenders are part of the Professional Series, but the 780 offers a touchscreen digital touch screen.

    This display has scratch-proof glass and will please the tech lovers out there! The 780 also looks slightly more sleek in our opinion, but that’s a matter of taste.

    The 780 has the same low profile 64oz., 10.25″H container of the Professional Series 750. Both models also share variable speed and a pulse control, as well as the five pre-programmed settings.

    The Professional Series 750 has a 2.2 HP, four color choices, and a 6 ft. cord while the 780 has 2.2 HP, two color choices, and a 6 ft cord. The Professional Series 750 is ever so slightly smaller with the container overall, with an 8.5” L X 8.5” W and 17.25” H versus the 8.8” L x 9” W and 17.25” H of the 780.

    The 780 has a high-tech digital touch screen and radial cooling fan for the motor.

    Overall, the Professional Series 750 is a great blender and is more affordable than the 780, but if you like higher-tech or blend for lengthy periods, the touch screen and cooling fan may be worth the $120 jump in price.

    Conclusion: Should You Purchase Vitamix 750?

    Many people struggle with the space needed to own the multitude of small kitchen appliances that are wanted or needed to perform daily kitchen tasks.

    Basic blenders chop, blend and puree, and depending on the model, they can struggle to accomplish even that singular task. Typically, we think a blender is meant to make a smoothie.

    Nowadays, there are so many personal and bullet blenders; one wonders why you’d spend the money on a high-quality blender. Most accomplished home cooks also want or have a food processor on hand to chop, puree, and blend sauces.

    Immersion blenders can assist with sauces and soups. Other items like ice cream makers, grinders, and juicers are also common.

    When you add up the cost for each of these items, if you are seeking power and durability in your kitchen, the versatility of a Vitamix blender will allow you to have just one appliance in your home kitchen.

    In addition to the jobs, the low profile container can perform on its own. There are multiple size containers and attachments that can be purchased to make this blender do even more for you in the kitchen.

    Yes, the Vitamix Professional Series 750 is initially very expensive but pays off in the long run.

    It saves space in your kitchen by doing the job of multiple small kitchen appliances, lasts longer than any other blender or small kitchen appliances, and a seven-year warranty backs it.

    If you are thinking about buying the Vitamix Professional Series 750 Blender, you might want to take a look at the Vitamix Ascent Series too. These blenders offer the same quality experience but with wireless connectivity that could be interesting if you love tech.
