Our Verdict

Scoring close to the top in our tests, the Vitamix Pro 750 is undeniably a fantastic product and delivered a performance that very well could have earned it an award. However, this blender costs a decent amount more than our award winners, precluding it from winning, as you can get a similar performance for significantly less with the Vitamix A2500 Ascent Series. The Vitamix Pro 750 did distinguish itself by doing particularly well at grinding harder food items, making exceptionally fine powdered sugar and corn flour, as well as doing a great job grating parmesan cheese. However, this blender is a little more difficult and less convenient to use, canceling this out.

Our Analysis and Test Results

The Vitamix Pro 750 nearly matched the performance of both the Cuisinart Hurricane Pro and the Vitamix A2500 Ascent Series with all three blenders earning top scores. The Pro 750 did exceed the performance of the Vitamix 5200, proving superior when it came to crushing ice, pureeing food, and being more convenient to operate.

Performance Comparison


To find out which blender truly ruled them all, we bought the latest and greatest models on the market and judged them side-by-side to find the best. We split our testing process into five different rating metric, each weighted based on its significance. These metrics are Smoothies, Ice, Convenience, Pureeing, and Grinding, with the results of the Vitamix Pro 750 outlined in the sections below.

Smoothies


Earning the most weight out of any of the metrics, our Smoothie metric is responsible for a large part of the total score at 30%. We judged the Pro 750 on its performance at making four different beverages: a green smoothie, Oreo malt, a berry smoothie, and a hearty fruit and oat concoction. This model did exceptionally well, earning a 9 out of 10 and tying for the top spot with the Cuisinart and the A2500.

Using the "Smoothie" preset function, the Pro 750 created an essentially perfect green smoothie that was silky-smooth and essentially poured right through our sieve without issue.

The Pro 750 carried its excellent performance into our berry smoothie test, practically obliterating all of the seeds with only the tiniest bit of unblended food caught in the sieve.

Performance dropped a little in our fruit and oat test, with some oats and almonds escaping the blade and remaining whole. However, the Pro 750 finished out the test with a fantastic performance in our Oreo shake challenge, completely blending the beverage without issue and totally breaking down the cookies.

Ice


Accounting for a fifth of the total score, our Ice metric comprises two tests: blending a perfect frozen margarita and crushing ice only. The Pro 750 again delivered a stellar performance, earning a perfect 10 out of 10 for its performance, again tying for the top spot with the A2500 Ascent Series and the Hurricane Pro.

This model completely crushed a pitcher full of ice without the slightest difficulty, accomplishing the task in about 15 seconds or so.

Convenience


Meriting the same weight as our Ice metric, our Convenience rating metric also is worth 20% of the overall score. We compared how easy it is to clean each blender, whether or not it has any preset functions, and the ease of removing the lid, as well as a few other things to determine the score for each product. The performance of the Pro 750 did drop into this metric, earning a 6 out of 10 for its slightly above average performance.

The Pro 750 is not dishwasher compatible, but it is relatively easy to clean by hand. The pitcher is wide enough to easily reach inside and there is plenty of space around the blades, with no annoying crevices or lips to trap food.

There is plenty of ventilation on the base for the bottom of the pitcher, allowing you to place it back on the motor before it is completely dry without too much fear of mold growing. This model does have a digital timer, as well as a small set of preset functions.

However, these presets are labeled with icons that aren't the most intuitive, requiring a little time to get used to. The lid is also very easy to remove from the pitcher, preventing any accidental spills or splashes.

Pureeing


Taking credit for 15% of the final score, our Pureeing metric is composed of a trio of tests. We rated the Pro 750 on how well it made almond and peanut butter and mixed tomato soup, as well as if it could heat up the soup hot enough to serve. The Pro 750 rebounded from its lackluster performance in our Convenience metric, earning a perfect 10 for its profound performance in our Pureeing metric, tying for the top spot with the Cuisinart and the Vitamix A2500.

This blender made a nice and creamy spread when tasked with pureeing peanuts and almonds into butter. It took a little over 8 minutes, with this appliance showing no signs of difficulty or overheating. It also did an excellent job at mixing the soup, creating a velvety-smooth tomato soup that almost completely poured through the sieve.

Grinding


For the conclusion of our test, we ranked how well each blender did at grinding up food. We again used three tests - powdered sugar, corn flour, and parmesan cheese — to judge the performance of each blender in this metric, worth the remaining 15% of the total score. The Vitamix Pro 750 delivered an exceptional showing, meriting a 9 out of 10 for its efforts.

This appliance did an amazing job at making powdered sugar, reducing the granulated sugar into an extremely fine powder — on par with the Vitamix A2500. This product also did an amazing job at milling corn flour from popcorn kernels, with 99% of the final product passing through the sieve without issue.

The Pro 750 finished out with a solid performance at grating parmesan cheese, but the resulting grind just wasn't quite as fine as that produced by the Cuisinart.

Value


The Pro 750 isn't a great value, as you can get the same caliber performance from products that cost a lot less.

Conclusion


While the Pro 750 is a fantastic blender, it is hard to recommend when there are products like the A2500 and the Cuisinart Hurricane that cost at least a hundred bucks less, and scored better in our testing. However, the Pro 750 is a great option if you can find it for a discounted price.
