Searching for a new blender can be a long and tedious process, but the Vitamix 750 just might be a beacon in the sea of endless low-quality blenders. For anyone who has ever experienced the trouble of dull blades and weak, smelly motors, the need for high-performing, professional grade blenders is definitely at a high.
This vitamix blender could be a potential solution to any and all of your blending problems. Our Vitamix 750 Review will help you see how you can bring professional grade blending into your home kitchen.
With its powerful motor, low-profile, sleek design, and convenient presets, the Vitamix 750 brings ease to your blending endeavours at just about every turn. Overall, it is a powerful and effective blender. However, it is up to you to decide if it fits in to your kitchen needs.
Vitamix G Series
The Vitamix 750 is part of Vitamix’s 2013 G-series. The G-series features major improvements over the brand’s C-series. In particular, the G-series features a stronger horsepower motor and air circulation design that improves motor functionality with less noise. As such, the new cooling fan and built-in thermal protector allows users to run the blender for longer periods of time without worrying about the motor overheating.
One of the other notable innovations the G-series brings is the addition of a low-profile construction to its high capacity design. Not only does this preserve the Vitamix 750 ’s ability to produce large servings, but it also makes this stainless steel vitamix blender easy to store on counter tops and underneath overhead cabinets.
The G-series features two other blender models in addition to the Vitamix 750: the Vitamix 7500 and the Vitamix 780. The 7500 is the base model of the series while the 780 is the top model of the series. The 780 has the added feature of a digital touch screen. Although, we find that the 750 is the happy medium between the 7500 and the 780, which we will talk about in more detail below.
The Vitamix 750 is one of Vitamix’s top grade, high-performance blender that presents a good, useful balance between presets and variable speed control that eases blending a wide variety of ingredients.
This Vitamix 750 blender can complete all your tranditonal blender needs, but also excels in other functions as well. Soups and purees can be blended in a matter of seconds, while frozen ingredients and nut butters are no match for the 750’s motor, blade and container design.
Speed Control & Automated Blending
With the Vitamix 750, you have full control over the texture of your ingredients. This blender features variable speed settings from 1 to 10 that are controlled via a user-friendly speed dial. The dial can be adjusted and rotated at any point during the blend.
There is even a pulse control button for more precise control over the texture of your blend. The pulse control button can help you move ingredients around while blending and allows you to layer in more coarsely chopped ingredients into smoother purees.
You can have chunks of hearty vegetables in your perfectly pureed soup.
Additionally, there is a start/stop lever that can instantaneously stop the blender blades if need be. The Vitamix 750 also has five presets in addition to the ten variable speeds. The Vitamix 750 presets are smoothies, hot soups, frozen desserts, puree, and self cleaning.
These presets take a little more time out of your blending process. For example, you can use the Vitamix 750 smoothie setting for a preset speed and blending time that will give you a perfect smoothie blend. Rather than guessing or estimating the time and what speed to put the blender on, Vitamix has already built it into the blender.
The same goes for the other Vitamix 750 presets. Whether you are looking to make a nice pesto, a smooth tomato soup, or a bowl of homemade ice cream, the presets help you through a variety of Vitamix 750 recipes.
Additionally, the presets also allow you to just set the machine and walk away. Granted, the presets are designed from recipes featured in the Vitamix 750 cookbook, meaning that not every recipe you might try on the blender will work perfectly with the preset. You might end up with over or under blended ingredients, rather than the desired texture.
Thankfully, that is where the ten variable speeds come back in. If the preset did not do the right job for you, you can always turn the speed dial and refine the texture accordingly.
Meanwhile, since the 750 is not dishwasher safe, there is a self-clean preset that eliminates any struggling with handwashing the blender. Just a drop of dish soap in some warm water, the Vitamix 750 can clean itself in less than a minute.
State of the Art Motor
Another innovative G-series’ change is its improved horsepower motor. The Vitamix 750 features a commercial-grade, 2.2 horsepower motor. Horsepower is typically used in car engines, so you can only imagine how powerful this is for a home blender. This newer, stronger motor is designed to fit to the wider 64-ounce jars of the Vitamix 750. The strength of this motor ensures that your blender can pulverize the toughest of ingredients.
Now, you can spend less time preparing ingredients to go into the blender. With taller, more slender blenders, you normally would have to cut up hard raw vegetables before putting them in the blender. However, with the powerful motor and the the wider container construction, ingredients are easily circulated and processed.
Additionally, you can use your Vitamix 750 over and over again without worrying about it overheating. Vitamix motors are designed with an air circulating feature to maintain even torque and cool temperatures at high speeds. This means you can blend sauces and soups for up to six minutes at a time without worrying about the blender overheating.
High-Quality Stainless-Steel Blades
In addition to an extremely powerful motor, the Vitamix 750 features four 4-inch blades. These stainless-steel blades are laser-cut so each prong simultaneously and efficiently slices and pulverizes ingredients. With the help of the 2.2 horsepower motor, these blades reach 37,000 rotations per minute. Not only will you get the best flavor out of your ingredients, but you will also get the most nutrients with the help of these blades.
Let’s say you want to make your own nut butters. The strength and precision of the Vitamix blender’s blades can grind your favorite nuts into the smoothest nut butter in no time. Just think of how much money you are saving by making your own nut butter. From coffee beans to spices, you can grind anything you like.
The 750’s motor and blades are also strong enough to mix batters and even knead doughs. The versatilty and power of the 750’s blades makes this blender a great companion for any novice or seasoned cook.
The extended length of the blender blades matches the wider base of the 750’s container, which helps create a vortex inside the blender. This ensures that stubborn ingredients are constantly folded back towards the blade and have more room to move and come in contact with the blades.
No matter what, there shouldn’t be an ingredient left behind.
Another great quality to the 4-inch blender blades is that they work together with the motor to create and cook hot soups. It does this by combining the heat and power generated from the strong motor with the friction of rotating blender blades to cook and blend soup until it is at the perfect temperature to serve right out of the container. There is no need to pull out any saucepans or extra dishware when your soup can go from the blender directly to the dinner table in no time.
Low-Profile & Sleek Design
Perhaps the most innovative aspect of this gadget is its 64-ounce low profile container design. The 64-ounce container can process large batch blends, but at 17 inches tall and 12.5 pounds, it still fits snugly under most kitchen overhead cabinets.
What is also notable is that the container is BPA-free and is free of estrogenic and androgenic activity. The container has a rubber lid that is not only spill proof but also allows for the release of steam and pressure when it comes to cooking hot foods. Along with the container, you also get a tamper, which helps ensure all ingredients make it to the blades.
The low-profile container comes in a variety of colors. The Vitamix 750 colors are the vitamix 750 brushed stainless metal finished, black, copper metal finish, and apple red. The color is definitely according to personal preference, but any of them would make a lovely addition to any kitchen profile.
Vitamix 750 Accessories
Along with the blender itself, you can also get a cookbook full of Vitamix 750 recipes that are professionally designed and easy to follow. Each recipe utilizes the Vitamix 750 in some way, so you have more opportunities to learn the versatile funcitons of your blender.
There is also a DVD hosted by Chef Michael Voltaggio, a quick-start guide and an owner’s manual book. So even though the entire blender is pretty user-friendly and intuitive, there are a few guides at your disposal.
