To Buy A Vitamix Container:
There is a Mini Tamper in the box with the 48 oz. wet container,
but you need to order a Mini Tamper to go with the 32 oz. wet container.

To Buy A Vitamix Machine:
The Reconditioned Next Generation is by far the best value. In my opinion, it has the best combination of features for the price. I have almost every Vitamix model (including a Pro 750, and all 4 Ascents) but I use the Next Generation model in my kitchen, and if I were shopping for a Vitamix today, I would get another reconditioned Next Generation. It is the same as a Pro 750, but without the programmed settings.
NOTE: When you buy new, you can choose the name of the model. When you buy a reconditioned Next Generation model, they could send you either a Pro 300, a 7500, or a Creations Elite. They are identical machines in every way except the name. Vitamix sells the 7500, they make the Pro 300 for William’s Sonoma, and they make the Creations Elite for QVC. On QVC the Creations Elite is sold with a 48 oz wet container, but when it is sold as a reconditioned Next Generation model, it is packaged with the 64 oz., low profile, wide bottomed, wet container.
The Reconditioned 5300 saves you a bit of money over the Next Generation model. It has the same Next Generation 64 oz. container, and will PERFORM the same as a Next Generation model, but the 5300 has a Standard motor base.

Benefits and Limitations of the Next Generation Vitamix Container
The Vitamix Ascent models are the future of Vitamix. As of right now, the 20 oz. Blending Cup, and the 8 oz. Blending Bowl are the only additional containers available. Additional containers like the 48 oz. wet, and the 32 oz. dry will roll out in the future. With bluetooth technology built into every model, it will be interesting to see what Vitamix plans to do with that in the future! Right now, Vitamix offers this bluetooth scale.
The Ascent 2300 has manual controls, and no timed settings.
The Ascent 2500 has manual controls, and timed settings.
The Ascent 3300 has touch screen controls, and no timed settings. It also has a count-down timer so you can have the machine stop blending after the amount of time you choose.
The Ascent 3500 has touch screen controls, and timed settings. It is currently the top-of-the-line Vitamix model!
The Reconditioned Standard Programs is a good machine to consider when you want to save money! More about the Standard models in this blog article. The only difference between the Standard and the Standard Programs models are the programmed settings. Right now, the reconditioned Standard Programs is actually less expensive than the reconditioned Standard!
