As health craze for green smoothies hit critical mass, blender manufacturers around the world have seen their sales increase in response, and as many new companies out of the woods in the hope they can catch the tail end of the trend. But a blender maker has been around since before many of these companies are even born, and will live after they are dead – Vitamix. The Vitamix 7500, a best blenders choice, is the latest in a business mixer line that is one of the most respected and considered by both professional chefs and amateurs, but that alone enough to justify his praise equally high cost?

Vitamix 7500 blender Specifications
Despite its high price, the Vitamix 7500 looks anything but cheap. Vitamix made his name as the solution to go to chefs working in professional kitchens and production, an arena where the last thing you want to be treated is too many buttons that can break or wear over time.
As such, the Vitamix 7500 comes in a black rubber hull united, exactly three controls: On / Off, pulse, and a power dial. Its simplicity in its purest form, and I could not love him more than I do already. The container included 64 ounces “low profile” may seem a bit short and clear to some, but this design is also perfect for mounting on sliding under counters and cabinets with ease.
With an engine 2.2HP, the Vitamix 7500 is slightly more powerful than the last mixer we tested the Ninja Nutri iQ .
As we mentioned in the previous section, there are no special settings or programs baked in the Vitamix, unlike the Blendtec Designer 725 , just two buttons and a scroll wheel to give you control ultimate mixed on how your food or smoothie gets. As someone who has worked in kitchens for eight years, I am all too familiar with the nuances of how to lock the setting perfect mix to get the right texture, but it’s a skill I acquired on “buzz “(cooking terminology) literally thousands of gallons of soup for my time behind a cutting board.

For the average user this can be a little intimidating, which is why I recommend the Vitamix blender as a type of “professionals only”. Well, all that said, it takes about one day to become a professional on this thing so do not let that scare you away.
We mixed a variety of different foods and drinks inside the Vitamix, including frozen drinks, smoothies, soups, and went to the city on our own apple sauce home. As expected, the Vitamix shredded by all before it in stride, which was not too surprising if one considers the high cost. He quickly turned the ice to the perfect texture, snow that we like to see on blenders in this category, and all the smoothies we did was released by controlling the precision offered by the perfectly smooth 10 speed dial.
In our performance tests, we ran a decibel meter about three feet from the counter where Vitamix was sitting, and the volume of the unit varies quite widely by what we whisking. On pure ice tests, he shouted to loud 98.3dB while mixing a full 64 ounces of soup was significantly quieter, around 41.0dB.

With all those heavy praise in mind, the question remains – is the Vitamix 7500 actually worth? Undoubtedly to $ 528, the 7500 is one of the most expensive blenders on the market, and it’s true, you really do not get a lot of extras to go with it.
But for all that he lacks the Vitamix is here to do one thing and one thing only: mix the hell out of everything in sight. This is a powerful, durable, long lasting mixer that can put up with huge amounts of punishment and does not go without a fight. Is it overkill for most kitchens? Absolutely. But if you are someone who wants a blender that will last them well into the next century before breaking down or needing a replacement blade, Vitamix 7500 gets the job done.
