Vitamix Ascent Blender A3500i

Product number: 31904

Supercharged smoothies in under a minute. Hot soup in less than five. And ice cream in just 30 seconds. When it comes to versatile, professional quality kitchen kit, you can’t go wrong with the Vitamix Ascent Series A3500i. So much more than ‘just’ a blender, it speeds through dozens of kitchen tasks quickly and effortlessly, and its powerhouse motor, simple controls, touchscreen panel and wireless connectivity offer all the versatility, power and control you’ll ever need. It is, quite simply, the best Vitamix we’ve ever come across.


Blend, chop, make frozen treats, heat, grind, emulsify... perfect for everything from everyday food prep to specialist tasks, the Ascent dices, chops or blends whole ingredients almost instantly, so there’s no need to do any prep beforehand.

  • Fresh, fibre-rich fruit juices in under a minute.
  • Makes hot soup from scratch in under 5 minutes.
  • Makes ice cream or frozen yoghurt in just 30 seconds – just add ice or frozen fruit – there’s no time for the ingredients to melt.
  • Dices, chops or blends ingredients – makes everything from hummus to peanut butter.
  • Smashes through ice cubes for smoothies, cocktails and frozen desserts in seconds.
  • Grinds wet or dry ingredients.


The Vitamix Ascent has the motor power, torque, speed and blade design to process food so that you get all the goodness without losing nutrients. And rather than using a heating element, it’s the friction from the incredibly quick motor that does all the work. Which is why 5 minutes is all it takes to turn uncut, unpeeled veg into fresh, hot, ready-to-serve soup – and that’s faster than opening a tin and heating the contents up.

Total Control

With a choice of simple manual controls and pre-set programmes accessed via the touchscreen, the Ascent is incredibly easy to use. If you want total control, the variable speed dial with its 10 speed settings and the Pulse function let you fine-tune the texture of any recipe. The programmable timer avoids any risk of under- or over-processing: just set to the right length using the + and – buttons and it’ll switch off automatically too, so you can simply walk away and let it get on with the task. And if you want to make smoothies, frozen desserts, soups, dips and spreads or clean your machine, its pre-set programmes let you do so at the touch of a button, and will also adjust to the container size you’ve selected and stop when the job’s done.

Self-Detect Technology

Cleverly this blender automatically adjusts programme settings and maximum blending times according to the size of the container used. The Ascent A3500i uses Interlock technology to prevent the machine from operating if the lid or container is not secure

Wireless Connectivity

Vitamix have built in wireless connectivity to the Ascent so it’s ready for any technological innovations to come. The blender base already communicates with compatible Self-Detect Vitamix containers or cups using wireless technology, with each container programmed for optimum performance according to its size and functionality (other sizes are available separately).

Other Features

  • Laser-cut, hardened stainless steel blades deliver quality blends for years to come.
  • Metal Drive System securely joins your container to the motor base and provides maximum durability.
  • Interlock technology prevents the blender from operating if the lid or container is not secure.

In the box:

  • 1200W motor base.
  • 2 litre Tritan container with lid and graduated measuring tool.
  • Low-profile tamper.
  • Ascent Series recipe book.

Vitamix blenders are built to last in the USA and come with a 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee.

The Tritan container and the tamper are dishwasher safe (on the top shelf) and BPA free.

"Excellent quality, so powerful, smoothy in 1 min, soup in 6"

star star star star star

The Vitamix Ascent Blender is so much more than a blender. Excellent quality, so powerful, smoothy in 1 min, soup in 6 mins, if I had known what it is capable of I would have had one years ago, I use it at least once a day, sometimes 3, it does so much.

"Robust, easy to use and easy to clean"

star star star star star

I am delighted with my A3500i. This is my 2nd Vitamix so I am aware of just how good they are but this model takes my healthy food preparations to a whole new level. Support from Customer Services at Lakeland and Vitamix was excellent, between them they answered all my pre-purchase questions. I thought long and hard before finally deciding to buy this model (it is a lot of money) but already I can see it is worth it. I have already used the Vitamix and the blending beakers and can confirm they are easy to use and clean. The pre-set programmes are really useful.

"Delighted with my purchase"

star star star star star

I have wanted a Vitamix for a very long time and only wish I had got one sooner. This model is excellent. Nothing causes any issue. I have used all the presets with great results. I was concerned that I might find it hard to use as I have Rheumatoid Arthritis but once in place the individual components are easy to manage.

I bought this two years ago and it literally works like it does the day I bought it. It cleans a dream, and the settings are convenient. It looks nice in the kitchen. It’s a little loud depending on the food you put in. But honestly it’s better than the Ninja I had prior.

"Not perfect"

star star star star_border star_border

I spent £750 on my Vitamix with attachments and I expected perfection at that price. What I got was a very good blender but one that was extremely noisy, very difficult to get food out of it (unless the food was pourable) because of the narrow base and the blades (made great peanut butter but left most of it behind!) and the plunger that comes with it for scraping down the sides is next to useless. Overall I found it to be style over substance and I returned it for a full refund.

support_agent A note from the team

Thank you for your review. We sorry to hear this didn't meet your expectations and we're pleased we were able to put things right for you. We'd recommend for making smaller quantities like nut butter, dips, sauces ect using the smaller blending cup accessories.
