[Amazon.ca] Viatmix 32oz wet container $141.61

This is a great everyday size when you have a small portion to process.
The new wide 48oz container doesn't work well if you don't fill it up.

I bought this a while ago and pretty much using it exclusively.
Costco does not sell this size container (wet) anymore.

Beware it does not come with a tamper.
You need a mini-tamper. Vitamix says you don't need one for the 32oz but you really do.

How else do you justify a $500 blender?

It's expensive because it also contains the blade...

Fat container does not blend well without temper.
141 $ is way over priced.

This is my favourite size for everyday things (fruit sorbet, nut butters, etc). The 64 oz that it came with is too big. I would say a tamper to use with it is a necessity.

Their customer service is top notch (kinda expected, for the price you pay).
When I got my ascent 2500, I didnt know that I wasn't supposed to press the jar down so I kept on pressing on it (just a habit from using the magic bullet I suppose) and this kind of damaged the bottom rubber part. It still functions well but it kind of left a burn mark? Anyways. I panicked and contacted their service and they were like, no worries! We will send you a new jar! So I got another one for free but the first one still works perfectly so I don't know when i will get to use the 2nd one. I guess i might use it for dry ingredients.

As for a smaller jar, I was worried about the 64oz but I haven't had any trouble making 1-2 portion smoothies with the 64 oz jar. My original plan was to order a 48oz jar after but I'm still able to do everything with 64oz. I haven't tried making a nut butter yet so maybe I will need a smaller jar for that.
Wish ascent also had 32oz jars. I feel like 48 is just a bit iffy.. not big enough nor small enough.

After you use a Vitamix, you'll understand -- I wasn't a believer either until I tried one out myself. Also, $500 is not much for a tool like this especially with a 10 year warranty. The only consideration is whether you want to wait out to see if Vitamix will ever release a vacuum blender.

smaller containers need their own smaller tamper, but the tamper is not "necessary". tamper people just really like tampers

I bought one recently to make baby food and forgot to make a thread. The default 64oz container is way too big for everyday use, so I can see using this one 95% of the time from now on... worth the investment.

It's $114.98 at Williams Sonoma but they charge $20 flat rate for shipping, so I bought it from Bed Bath and Beyond (free shipping) and had them pricematch WS for $120.73 all in (AB tax).

Is this compatible with the ascent series? I have the 3500 and I thought only the self detect containers could be used with them?

I was planning on getting the 48oz wet container but I would prefer the 32 if it is compatible

I bought one of the blades and it seemed fine... but we ended up just getting warranty on the jug due to the leak. They sent a new one.

This was the complaint:
"We purchased a Vitamix from Costco (Canadian) in May 2015. Serial number XXXX (see attached). Ours started leaking out the bottom. There isn’t any visible signs or breakage. We tried tightening the blade underneath as well but it’s still leaking. Would this be covered under warranty?"
This was their response:
"Thank you for contacting Vitamix! We apologize about the delay in reply to your inquiry. We appreciate your patience as we work through this busy time.



To help us determine no other damage was done to your Vitamix, we will ask for your help to complete the following troubleshooting steps with your product and share the results:



The Base Only: Make sure your motor is unplugged before completing these steps.

· There is a little round piece with teeth in it sticking up from the top of your motor. Look down into the very center of that piece & let me know if it is cracked anywhere.

· If it is not cracked, take the piece in your fingers and pull upwards on it gently. It should wiggle slightly in all directions but it should not come out of the motor.



When you get the chance to complete these steps, please let us know the results as well as the information requested below, so we can get you back to blending!



Last Name:

Complete Billing Address:

Complete Shipping Address (If different than above):

Date of Purchase:

Phone Number:

Serial Number (18 digits on back or the bottom of motor base, under the barcode):

What speed do you normally run your Vitamix on?:

In what order do you layer your ingredients?:

How often do you use your tamper?:



If you have any further questions or concerns please let us know. Customer Service is available Monday-Friday 8am-8pm EST & Saturday 9am-5pm EST by calling #800-848-2649 or you can email us at customersupport@vitamix.com. We would be happy to assist you."

Vitamix is worth it. Smells like poor in here.
