Vitamix 7500 vs 750: Which Blender’s Best?
Any Vitamix blender is going to be hard to beat. In fact, some fans of the company’s impressive product lineup may even go so far as to say that the only blender that can beat a Vitamix blender is another Vitamix blender.
While that is a question for another day, it is at least safe to say that this manufacturer has a history of making excellent kitchen equipment.
The choice will be tough. With both options, you get an incredible 2.2 horsepower motor, a revamped motor housing for noise suppression and better cooling, ten speed settings, and an impressive 64-ounce container.
You do pay for convenience though. The 750 also happens to be more expensive than the 7500, which may lessen its appeal to budget buyers.
Read on to find out if more features are worth more money.
What are the differences between them?
Price: Point for the Vitamix 7500
Not only are both of these blenders expensive compared to other products, they’re also expensive relative to the rest of the Vitamix product line.
Since these are two of their newer units, they’re both very expensive. However, the 750 is a little bit newer than the 7500, and for that reason, it’s also a little bit pricier.
As we already mentioned, you do get a little bit more for your money. But if you value saving a few dollars over getting a few more features, than you may prefer the 7500.
Ease of Use: Point for the Vitamix 750
As we mentioned in the introduction, the big difference between these two options is the inclusion of pre-programmed settings that are found only in the 750. With these settings, you can make hot soup, cold deserts, smoothies, and pureed vegetables and fruits—all with the push of a button. There’s also a pre-programmed setting for self-cleaning.
All of this said, it’s important to keep in mind that the 7500 can do all of these things as well. While you may have to play around with the speed settings a little bit to figure out which option is best at doing what, the 7500 can do anything that the 750 can.
For some people, the inclusion of pre-programmed settings is important. For other users, they aren’t that big of a deal. Ultimately, you’ll have to decide for yourself which camp you fall into. Either way, if you do want the settings, you’ll find them in the 750.
Everything Else: Tie
The 7500 and the 750 really do have most things in common. With either option, you’ll get sophisticated housing, loads of power, and massive containers that can make up to a half gallon of blended goodness.
They’re also both equally versatile, with the ability to grind coffee and make soups, ice cream, or even pizza dough.
As you’ve no doubt already realized, the only true differences between these blenders pertain to price and settings. In every other department, the options are tied.

What the Users Say
Both the 750 and the 7500 are enjoyed by the people who use them. In particular, we see a lot of love for the presets in the 750. Many users like the ability to make common foods without needing to overthink the process.
The new motor housing also gets a lot of love (though users don’t realize this is what they’re praising). We hear from many people who report that both units run considerably quieter than they expected.
We haven’t heard many complaints pertaining to either blender. We have heard from some users of the 7500 who struggle to adapt to life without presets.
Indeed, if you’re used to standard blenders that don’t feature variable speed settings, you may initially find the options daunting. However, most users that we’ve heard from do eventually adapt to them.
So, which to buy? In the end, the decision is going to depend on what you’re hoping to get out of this purchase. Buyers who want the very best they can get will find it with the 750. Pre-programmed settings really can be nice to have if you don’t want to have to think too much as you make your morning smoothie.
However, if you’re trying to keep to a budget, you may not mind the lack of modes. Variable speed settings are actually one of the best aspects of Vitamix blenders. Though relying on them exclusively will require adapting to a learning curve, it certainly isn’t the worst thing in the world.
Ultimately, you get a good blender with either option. You just need to decide for yourself which is best suited for your needs.
