Our Vitamix 750 Review: Key Features

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 is designed to be the brand’s top-of-the-range home use blender, and has features accordingly.

It has a strong 2.2 peak horsepower engine, which enables it to crush anything you might care to throw at it – from nuts to ice to frozen fruit, the 750’s engine will make short work of anything you might care to make. In addition, the 750 boasts a new sound-proofing case that reduces the noise of this heavy motor by 40% on other Vitamix models like the 6500. There is a built in sound-muffling function as well as units that you can buy separately, but these accessories may not be manufacturer approved, so we don't specifically endorse them.

Like most other Vitamix blenders, the 750 has variable speed control, allowing you to specifically control the speed of the blades to customize its blending for whatever you want to make. There’s no risk of over-blending with a 750, as you can control the whole process from start to finish.

And if you do decide to blast it at high speed, the 750 will keep up: it comes with a built-in fan that will prevent it from overheating, protecting the engine even when run at high speeds. There’s no risk that the motor will give out just when you need it most – it has the reliability to keep going and going.

A major feature for the 750 that differentiates it from most of its competitors is the five pre-programmed settings that it boasts. These pre-programmed settings are smoothies, frozen dessert, soup, and puree, and it even features a built-in cleaning program so that you can press a button and let it get on with the work. In addition, Vitamix has enabled the 750 to self-adjust during these programs, using feedback from blade resistance and a microprocessor to adjust speed – so you’re sure to get a great result each time.

The 64-ounce container is one of the biggest on the market, but short and wide enough that it can still fit under most kitchen cabinets and remain easy to clean.

Finally, one of the features specific to Vitamix products is their tamper, which can be used to prevent blockages from forming during blending and help save time – especially when blending more solid foods such as nut butters or spreads. Check out some of our favorite recipes for those items here and here.

Design Quality & Build

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 is the premier Vitamix product for home use, and has been designed with this image in mind. Like all other Vitamix products, it has incredibly high build quality, with laser-cut stainless-steel blades, a metal container-to-base coupling to ensure durability, and shatter-proof BPA-free plastic in its container.

It does, however, have a few features that set it aside from even the other members of the Vitamix range. Its design is sleek and attractive – it is a blender that will fit in with even the most aesthetically-minded kitchens, and can be chosen in a few colors – black, copper, and brushed steel (depending on where you shop) – so you can customize it to fit in perfectly with your space.

The model is heavy, but this has been described as a boon by many users, because it does not “walk” across the counter when in heavy use, as lighter competitors can. And since most people keep it in one place on the counter, there’s no real need to worry about the weight – you won’t be lugging it up and down between cupboards and the counter.

As mentioned above, the 64-ounce container that the 750 hosts is shorter than many other blenders, making it easy to fit into the smaller parts of your kitchen.

Noisiness and Power

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 is one of the strongest of the Vitamix range, with 2.2 peak horsepower that enables the blades to spin at up to 37,000rpm – making short work of anything in their way. This is one of the most powerful of the home blenders on the market, and is stronger than many professional models – with the benefit of a longer warranty and more attractive design.

In addition, the major advantage that the 750 has over similarly-powerful machines is its new case. This sound-proofed feature reduces noise by 40% on other blenders with similar horsepower, which may be an important feature for anyone who is sensitive to sound or plans to use this product extensively.

It should be noted that this blender is by no means quiet – it is still loud, for a blender – but considering the massive power that it brings, this is somewhat to be expected. For its strength, it is one of the quieter models on the market.

Is It Easy To Use?

The 750 is great to use, with a simple set-up that could not be easier to follow. There are only three components to its use: a switch to turn it on, a variable speed control and pre-programmed settings dial, and a switch that turns on high-speed mode.

While turning the machine on is as simple as flicking the on-off switch, the 750 offers much more customization than that – but still in an easy-to-use form. You can increase the speed at which the machine runs by turning the dial, and even push it into high-power mode by flicking another switch.

The major advantage of the 750 in this arena is the five pre-programmed settings that it comes with. Some of the other Vitamix models have pre-programmed settings, but none has so many as the 750. The five settings – smoothies, frozen desserts, soups, purees, and cleaning – enable you to put your ingredients in the container and press a button – then come back later to find your chosen item perfectly made. There can be no easier way to operate a blender.

Is It Easy To Clean?

Cleaning the 750 is substantially easier than other models, due in part to its pre-programmed ‘cleaning’ setting. While the 750’s container is not dishwasher-safe, like other models, this setting makes it even easier than a dishwasher would be – simply fill the container with soapy warm water, press a button, and let it clean itself.

In addition, because the container is wider and flatter than most other blender models, there is a greatly reduced chance of food becoming stuck beneath the blades – yet another thing you won’t have to worry about.

Is It Reliable?

As mentioned, the 750 comes with a 7-10 year warranty; Vitamix are so confident of its reliability that they are willing to insure it for up to a decade. This, more than anything else, should speak to its quality.

The 750 also comes with a built-in cooling fan that prevents the engine from overheating even with heavy use. When it comes to day-to-day reliability, nothing could be better; this blender isn’t going to die on you when you need it most, and you can be sure it will keep performing even under heavy stress.

It should be noted that in the manual, Vitamix states that the speeds on this model should be varied over time; keeping it running at a consistent speed for a long amount of time will do damage to the motor, reducing its reliability.

Is It Budget Friendly?

The Vitamix Professional Series 750 is the top of the line Vitamix blender and this usually means that it can cost a a fair amount.

Since Vitamix blenders are already in the higher price range, this means that the 750 is usually one of the more expensive blenders on the market. But if money is not an issue – or if you want to make an investment into one of the best blenders on the market, which is guaranteed to last for up to a decade – you should consider this blender.

How Does It Compare to Other Blenders?

Blendtec Classic 575 vs. Vitamix 750: The Blendtec Classic 575 could be seen as Blendtec’s answer to the 750; it usually comes in a variety of colors (depending on when you're looking for it), has increased manual settings and four pre-programmed ones, and is intensely powerful. It also tends to be more affordable (*prices vary). The warranty is also extremely reliable and boasts to be 8 years by the manufacturer. However, sometimes these warranties can vary by retailer or if you get a used or refurbished unit.

Because of this, the 750 is best for someone looking for a top-of-the-range product that works perfectly, and is willing to splurge acquire this. The 575 is better for someone who still wants a powerful, customization machine with plenty of settings. Read our entire review of this blender here.

The Vitamix 6500 is the entry model of Vitamix’s G-Series blenders, of which the 750 is the top model. As a result, it shares many of the same features, including a 2.2-peak horsepower motor, low-profile container, and interface. However, it does not have two of the 750’s pre-programmed settings – puree and clean – and does not have the color customization of the 750.

The 6500 is a worthy comparison to the 750, lacking only the higher-tier functions, and this would make it ideal for anyone looking for a top-level blender with excellent specifications and great design. The 750, on the other hand, is for anyone looking for a machine that will work perfectly and look right at home in a beautiful kitchen. If you want to learn more about the 6500 check out our full review here.

The Vitamix 5200 is Vitamix’s flagship product: it is comparatively budget friendly, powerful, and versatile. It is at the very other end of the spectrum to the 750, which makes it ideal for a very different kind of person. Unlike the 750, the 5200 has no pre-programmed settings, a tall container, limited design features, and cleaning must be done more manually.

Because the 5200 is usually affordable, it is designed to appeal to families who want reliability, great processing power, and reliability in their blender. The 750 is designed for people who seek high-tier products and have large enough budgets to accommodate for this.
