High performance or super blenders will create heat in the foods being blended. Usually, with such high power, it only takes a short time to blend foods, and you can use frozen ingredients or add ice if you want really cold results. However, you can use your Vitamix A2300i to make delicious smooth hot soup in about 6 minutes of continuous running, without overheating the motor.

The Ascent series of Vitamix blenders have Bluetooth connectivity which powers their Self-Detect feature and gives them scope for further advances such as a perfect blend app. The Vitamix A2300i is built to last with a metal drive system and a confident 10 year warranty, which, with its superior capabilities, makes this a blender good value for money.

Blending

The Vitamix Ascent A2300i High Performance Blender can power through the hardest foods without stalling or leaving unwanted lumps or fibres. Smoothies, soups, juices, dips or spreads will have the luxurious silky smoothness that you would expect in a restaurant. By blending whole foods or raw foods with the Vitamix Ascent A2300i you will completely break down the natural fibre. This will release all of the nutrients in the food and create healthy juices, smoothies, soups and purees.

In a few seconds you can use quick bursts of real power to chop, shred or grind vegetables, nuts, grains, spices, dehydrated foods or even coffee beans to achieve any texture you desire.

The variable speed control and a clear lid allow you to monitor and adjust as you blend.

  1. I can’t find anywhere to buy the travel cups and the other containers for my new vitamix anywhere except in the US. Do you know if we will get them in Australia?

    • Hi Tess, thanks for the question.

      According to Vitamix (we called them to check) the extra containers for the Ascent series (1.4 litre wet and dry jars, travel cups and small blend and store bowls) should be available to buy in Australia either late 2018 or early 2018. We will update our review as soon as we know they are available.

  2. Hello. I have one of the older nutrition centre models and was wondering if my C series jugs will fit on the ascent series as I know the C series and the G series can be swapped around?

    • Hi Judy, thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately you can not use the C and G series containers on the Ascent Series because of the new wireless self-detect system that recognises the size and type of container being used.
