The Vitamix 7500 is a straightforward, full-size blender with ten different speed settings. Its large capacity, 64-ounce main jar is ideal for making large batches of your favorite foods, and it can easily make silky smoothies, spreadable almond butter, and snow-like crushed ice. Its components aren't dishwasher-safe, but it's easy to wash by hand using soap and water. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with many extra features or accessories, and it doesn't have any preset modes. That said, this versatile blender performs well with a variety of uses.

Our Verdict

9.2 Multi-Purpose

The Vitamix 7500 is superb for multi-purpose use. This well-built, premium-looking blender can easily crush snow-like ice and blend silky smoothies. It can also hot blend, which is nice. It produces sticky, spreadable almond butter that's the slightest bit grainy, and it doesn't leave any unprocessed chunks behind. The lid, container, and tamper aren't dishwasher-safe; however, they can be hand-washed for a quick and easy clean-up. This blender doesn't have many extra features or components, but it has an impressive performance.

The Vitamix 7500 is excellent for smoothies and protein shakes. It creates a silky, well-blended smoothie in around a minute. It incorporates the ingredients well, though you may need to use the tamper to push leafy greens like kale towards the blades to get a smooth texture. This solid and sturdy blender isn't dishwasher-safe, but you can easily clean liquid messes like smoothies with hot water and soap.

This blender comes with four sharp blades that aren't designed to be removed from the jar when you clean it. It can be serviced thanks to its nut assembly, but removing the blades voids the warranty and is strongly discouraged by the manufacturer. They also aren't dishwasher-safe, and should only be hand-washed.

Two-Part Lid

Lid Closing Type
Friction

The lid uses friction to stay shut, and it has two ears on each side to help hold it in place on top of the main jar. Unlike some Vitamix models, like the Vitamix Venturist V1200, it's made of opaque plastic, so you can't down into the blender. However, the middle of the lid is removable, and you can use the opening to add ingredients or use the tamper while blending. Note that the lid and the tamper aren't dishwasher-safe, and can only be hand-washed.

The thick power cord is long enough to reach most outlets, and there's a stowaway compartment to store the cable when it's not in use, which is convenient.

This blender is great at making almond butter, though it doesn't perform quite as well as the Vitamix 5300 or the Vitamix Explorian E520. Following the instructions in the blender's companion recipe book, it takes around five minutes to blend sticky, spreadable almond butter. You may need to use the tamper to fully incorporate the almonds into the mix. The butter is a bit grainy when you taste it, but it isn't noticeable once you spread it on toast.

The Vitamix 7500 has a 10-setting speed dial, a pulse mode, and an on/off toggle. At max speed, it's louder than the Vitamix Explorian E310. If you like more control over the speed of the blender, check out the Vitamix 5200, which comes with 'High' and 'Variable' speed settings.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

This blender is easy to clean. The container, lid, removable center part of the lid, and tamper aren't dishwasher-safe and can only be hand-washed. However, you can easily clean most messes using hot water and soap. You may need to use a cleaning tool like a brush to clean up stickier messes like almond butter under the blades, but the mess comes off easily.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Vitamix 7500 blender comes in three different color variants: Black, Red, and White. We tested the Red model, but we expect the other variants to perform similarly.

You can also purchase this blender with several different accessories, including a 32-ounce container, a 20-ounce cup container, and a scraper accessory. We only tested the 64-ounce container, and these attachments may perform differently.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Vitamix 7500 is a pretty straightforward, yet very versatile full-size blender. It doesn't come with any preset modes, and it isn't Bluetooth-compatible like some of Vitamix's other models such as the Vitamix A2300. However, it performs well with a variety of uses, and can easily make smoothies, almond butter, and snow-like crushed ice. It comes in several different colors, and its 64-ounce main jar is suitable for making large batches of your favorite foods.

Vitamix 5200

The Vitamix 5200 and the Vitamix 7500 are very similar blenders, but you may prefer one over the other. The 7500 comes with a pulse mode, unlike the 5200, but the 5200 lets you choose between "High" and "Variable" speed settings. The 5200 can blend a slightly silkier smoothie in less time than the 7500, and it also makes a smoother, less grainy-textured almond butter. That said, both blenders have a very versatile performance.

Vitamix Professional Series 750

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 is a little better than the Vitamix 7500 for most purposes. The 750 delivers a better blending performance, since it's more suitable for making single-serve smoothies in its main jar and nut butter. It has a few automatic blending programs. Then again, the 7500 is slightly better-built and quieter. 

Vitamix 5300

The Vitamix 7500 and the Vitamix 5300 have similar overall performances, but the 7500 is better for multi-purpose use. The 7500 is better-built, and it makes a better-blended smoothie that fully incorporates leafy greens like kale into the mix. However, the 5300 does a better job making almond butter.

Vitamix Explorian E310

The Vitamix 7500 is a bit better than the Explorian E310. It's slightly better-built and has a bigger, 64-ounce capacity. It's better for ice crushing and much quieter when it's running. The Explorian is better-suited for making nut butter, and it's better at processing small batches of fibrous ingredients for recipes like single-serve smoothies. Its jar and lid are also dishwasher-safe, unlike the 7500's. 

Vitamix A3500

The Vitamix A3500 comes with more features than the straightforward Vitamix 7500. The A3500's control panel gives you access to a timer and several preset modes. It has a self-clean program and is dishwasher-safe, unlike the 7500. As it's part of Vitamix's Ascent series, you can purchase different jars for the A3500 that use Self-Detect technology to adjust the settings based on their size. The A3500 is also Bluetooth-compatible, and you can use its companion app to access even more preset modes. That said, the 7500 still has an outstanding overall performance.

Vitamix A2300

The Vitamix A2300 comes with more features than the Vitamix 7500. The A2300 comes with a self-clean program, a timer, and it's dishwasher-safe, unlike the 7500. As it's part of Vitamix's Ascent series, you can purchase different-size jars for the A2300 that use Self-Detect technology to adjust the settings based on size. The A2300 is also Bluetooth-compatible, and its companion app offers lots of different preset modes. The A2300 is better for making almond butter, but the 7500 is better for crushing ice. The 7500 is a solid choice if you're looking for a straightforward blender, but if you want more features, check out the A2300.

Vitamix A2500

The Vitamix A2500 has more features than the Vitamix 7500, but overall, both blenders have a very versatile performance. The A2500 is part of Vitamix's Ascent Series, so you can get different-size jars sold separately that use Self-Detect technology to adjust the blender's settings based on size. It also comes with preset modes, a self-clean program, and a timer, and it's Bluetooth-compatible, so you can access additional preset modes using a companion app. The A2500 also does a better job making smooth, spreadable almond butter.

Vitamix A3300

The Vitamix A3300 is better for most purposes than the Vitamix 7500. The A3300 makes more spreadable almond butter. It has more speed settings, and it's Bluetooth compatible, so you can access presets and modes via a companion app. On the other hand, the A7500 has a more premium-feeling build and makes better-blended smoothies.

Vitamix Venturist V1200

The Vitamix Venturist V1200 is better than the Vitamix 7500. It's better for pureeing small batches of fibrous ingredients, thanks to the 20-ounce personal jar that comes included. A few design features also set it apart, including a programmable timer and a clear lid for the main jar. On the other hand, the 7500 is significantly quieter.

Vitamix Explorian E520

The Vitamix 7500 is a bit better than the Vitamix Explorian E310. The 7500 is sturdier and much quieter when it's running. That said, the Explorian's 48-ounce main jar offers a better performance for some uses, like processing small amounts of fibrous ingredients. It's also better for making nut butter, but the 7500 is great for that purpose too. 

NutriBullet Blender Combo

The Vitamix 7500 is better than the NutriBullet Blender Combo. The Vitamix can crush ice. It has a much better build quality and does a better job of making almond butter and smoothies. It also has more speed settings and is easier to clean. On the other hand, the NutriBullet comes with two personal jars with to-go lids in addition to its main jar.

Blendtec Classic 575

The Vitamix 7500 is a better blender than the Blendtec Classic 575. The Vitamix has a much better build quality and does a significantly better job of making smoothies, almond butter, and crushed ice. However, the Blendtec is much easier to clean by hand.

KitchenAid K400

The Vitamix 7500 is better for most purposes than the KitchenAid K400. The Vitamix has a much better build quality and comes with a tamper. It makes much better smoothies, produces crushed ice with a better texture, and it's easier to clean by hand. However, the KitchenAid is a bit quieter at maximum speed. 

Blendtec Designer 725

The Vitamix 7500 is a better blender than the Blendtec Designer 725. The Vitamix makes more spreadable almond butter and a much better smoothie. It's also suitable for hot blending and has a significantly better build quality. On the other hand, the Blendtec is easier to clean, comes with an additional jar, and has several preset modes.

Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770

The Vitamix 7500 is better than the Ninja Mega Kitchen System BL770 for most uses. The Ninja makes much better smoothies and almond butter and it's much easier to clean by hand. Unlike the Vitamix, it comes with single-serve jars and a food processing attachment. On the other hand, the Vitamix is slightly better for professional use, since it has a much better build quality and can be used for hot blending. 

Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher System

The Vitamix 7500 and the Ninja Foodi Power Pitcher System have different strengths, and you may prefer either. It has a much better build quality, a faster maximum speed setting, and comes with a tamper and two-part lid for the main pitcher. It makes crushed ice with a better texture and you can use it to blend hot ingredients. However, the Ninja takes less time to make smoother, more spreadable almond butter. It also comes with personal jars that you can use to make better-blended smoothies.

NutriBullet Smart Touch Blender Combo

The Vitamix 7500 is better for most purposes than the NutriBullet Smart Touch Blender Combo. The Vitamix can crush ice. It has a much better build quality, makes smoother almond butter, and has a speed dial with a greater number of speed settings. On the other hand, the NutriBullet's controls include a few presets and a timer. In addition to its main jar, it comes with two personal jars with to-go lids. 

KitchenAid K150

The Vitamix 7500 is better than the KitchenAid K150. The Vitamix makes much better smoothies and crushed ice with a better texture. It's much better-built, comes with a tamper, and has a faster maximum blending speed.
