Vitamix 7500

The new Vitamix 7500 is one of the latest additions to the Vitamix lineup and is the most popular G-Series (NextGen) blender in that line. Building upon the quality and innovative technology of their past blenders, Vitamix created the Vitamix 7500 and addressed a few of the problems that owners of the Vitamix 5200 complained about.

The most noticeable difference with 7500 is the redesigned, lower-profile 64 oz container. The entire unit – with the container in place – is only 17.5″ tall, a full three inches shorter than the older 5200. This makes it a lot easier to fit under your kitchen cabinet. Vitamix has also improved the sound dampening on their newest blenders, and this model is over 40% quieter than older models.

Specifications

The 7500 measures up a bit differently than the other models in the Vitamix line. It is shorter, only 17.5″ tall, wider, 7.7″ wide, and deeper, 9.4″ deep. The Vitamix 7500 is also heavier than past models, 12.5 lbs, likely because of the more powerful motor. It comes equipped the same 6-foot cord as other models, which can be neatly stored by winding it beneath the motor base, which comes in one of only three colors (red, black, or white).

With the Vitamix 7500 you’ll receive a Simply Fresh cookbook containing hundreds of delicious recipes, a Getting Started guide and DVD containing introductory recipes and techniques to help you become familiar with the new blender, and a tamper designed to fit the new, shorter container.

The redesigned Eastman Tritan™ container

Lower profile 64 oz container
The first thing you’ll notice different about the Vitamix 7500 is the redesigned, lower-profile 64 oz container. The container is made of the same BPA-free polycarbonate as previous models but has been completely redone to make it wider and shorter, meaning it will fit under the average kitchen cabinet. The lid is a similar version of Vitamix’s easy-off 2-part vented lids. The fitted lid secures snuggly to the container to prevent leaks and has a removable twist-off center lid plug which enables you to add extra ingredients while the motor is running without making a mess.

Even though the container has been redesigned, you’ll likely still need the tamper when blending thicker mixtures to help push the ingredients down into the blades and to prevent air pockets from forming above the blades at higher speeds.

The wider container will help a bit with chopping ingredients since the larger base allows more of the ingredients to come in contact with the blade, and it also makes cleaning easier. You’ll find that most kitchen spatulas can now be used to scrape out the ingredients in the container more easily.

There are also several containers you can buy to get more use out of your Vita mix blender, such as the Vitamix Dry Container.

The Motor

The motor in the Vitamix 7500 has been upgraded so that it is more powerful than earlier Vitamix models. This blender’s motor is capable or 2.2-peak horsepower at 12 amps. This increase in horsepower means that it can now reach top speed of 270 miles per hour at full power so that ingredients are broken down more quickly.

This slow motion video by popsci.com shows just how much power a Vitamix is capable of producing. The vortex created by the blades will start to pull ingredients towards the blades almost immediately.

A lot of effort has also been put in to make the newer Vitamix blenders run more quietly. The Vitamix 7500 is nearly 40% quieter than the older Vitamix models, reportedly 7 decibels less noise at high speeds. If you’ve heard an older Vitamix before, you will be able to tell the difference. If the noise levels were what was holding you back from purchasing a Vitamix, then this model will be music to your ears.

The Controls

Vitamix 7500 controls
There have been some minor, but noticeable, improvements made to the controls of the new Vitamix 7500. This model still retains the familiar switch and dial configuration, but the high/variable toggle has been replaced with a pulse toggle.

This addition allows you to quickly pulse the blend at any speed for an added burst of power. You’ll also find this feature is very useful when chopping vegetables or making salsas. Gone are the day of flipping the power switch on and off or twisting the dial from 1 to 10.

The dial and switches are still made from the same ‘soft-touch’ rubber as the older models giving them a durable finish and solid feel.

Our Conclusion

The Vitamix 7500‘s increased power from the new, quieter running motor and redesigned, lower-profile container make an outstanding upgrade to the Vitamix lineup. If you’re serious about preparing food and want only the best for you and your family, this blender is worth the cost.

This blender is also guaranteed to last you seven years and will likely last many years past that. Not many other blenders on the market can make that claim.

  1. Hi! I just got my reconditioned G- series and it came in Creations Elite model. And it is in red color. I checked Vitamix.com for Creations Elie and it comes only in two colors, not red. How can reconditioned be in red. I am confused.
    Another question.. The first, what concerned me when I tried to use it was the lid. It gets on pretty tight, but doesn’t make a snap sound like in demo videos. And it looks like two clasps on the rubber part of a lid should come in contact with a container when the lid is put on.. In my case they don’t even touch the container. It’s just the inner circle of a lid Holds the lid in place. Is this how it is supposed to be? I can’t find any info about the lids anywhere.
    Thank you! Maybe you will be able to help me.

      Hi Natalie! It is likely that the red color Creations Elite is a exclusive model (perhaps for QVC only) and not offered direct from Vitamix.com. This happens quite often.

      In regards to the lid, what you’re describing sounds a bit off. The clasps on the side should catch the sides of the lip on the container to keep it secure during blending. I’d recommend calling Vitamix customer support and letting them know about this issue.

  2. Question about 32 oz wet and dry container and blades of 7500. Both wet and dry containers are same dimensions: 9.8″ tall and 32 oz. I have a dry container in the 7500 package that I bought from Costco. Can I buy wet blade and use it with dry container?

    1. Adam @ BlenderReviews.us

      As far as I know, the container shells are the same, so it should be possible but I have not tried it.

  3. I just bought a 5300 at Costco and then read the reviews for 7500. Placed my order for 7500 few seconds ago. 5300 goes back. BUT….my biggest concern is are there smaller wet containers for 7500? I am going to make small portions for myself and 64 ounce is way too big. 20, 32 would be great for wet and dry.

    1. Adam @ BlenderReviews.us

      Yes, the classic style containers will work with the newer models, like the 7500. Here’s a link to the 32 ounce wet container that should be exactly what you’re looking for – 32 oz container.

  4. Alice Erickson

    I feel like my older Vitamix liquified my smoothies much better than the newest does. I am using the same ingredients, but seem to have to continually add liquid to get it drinkable. What would you suggest. Thank you

    1. I’ve used both the 7500 and the 5200 and haven’t noticed much difference except when making very small batches.

      Since the base of the 7500 container is wider, you might just need to make a bigger batch of smoothies to get the same result.

    2. Adam @ BlenderReviews.us

      Alice, I’m not sure I’ve seen the same results as you’re describing. Is there a specific smoothie that seems to be causing issues for you?
