Vitamix 780 Blender Features

The G-Series 780 is a deluxe blender for those wanting to splurge out a little! It is a sleek machine with a modern Touchscreen Control Panel and 5 programs.

Blender Size

The Vitamix 780 dimensions are 17" x 12" x 14" and it weight 16.1 lb.

Touchscreen Control Panel

The LED control panel is made of hardened glass to resist cracks and scratches, and easy-tap buttons are only activated by touch, not splashes or spills. It has a simple lay out with the Star/Stop button right in the middle. The programs are on the left and the speed on the right.

Automated Blending

Five pre-programmed settings ensure simple cleaning, walk-away convenience, and consistent results for smoothie, frozen dessert, soup, and purée recipes.

The 5 programs include:

  • ​Smoothies
  • Desserts
  • Soups
  • Purees
  • Cleaning

It also has a pulse button that will pulse at 50% of high power. The Pulse button chops coarsely for heartier recipes, such as chunky salsas or thick vegetable soups.

Low-Profile 64-ounce Container

The 64-ounce container (nearly 2 liters) is low profile enough to fit comfortably under most kitchen cabinets. It is large enough for most family meals or 4 large smoothies.

The container is marked with ounces, millimeters and cup measurements.​

Blades and Components

The blades are made from hardened stainless steel.

There are two available blades for the Vitamix 780. The wet (which comes standard) is used for processing liquids like smoothies, soups, purees and batter.  The wet blades can process grain and knead dough, but the dry blade is more efficient.

The Dry blades are designed specifically for processing dry materials such as grain, cereal and coffee, and are also used for kneading bread dough.

Vitamix uses a metal drive system to connect the container to the motor base. Some blenders use plastic components that wear quickly and break under pressure.

The motor is a powerful 2.2hp. The most powerful motor for household machines.


The Vitamix 780 comes with a tamper to prevent air pockets from forming during blending and improve circulation. Make sure you have the correct tamper as you don't want it to come in contact with the blades.

Speed control

Speed can be varied by simply pressing your finger against the speed control bar from 1 to 10. Note that blending for long periods of time at low speed may overheat the blender. Luckily there is an automatic overload protector which will turn off the blender if it overheats. At high speed the blender's cooling fan keeps the blender cool.


The Vitamix 780 comes with a 7 year warranty.  .... "If the blender fails within 7 years from the date of purchase due to a defect in material or workmanship or as a result of normal wear and tear from ordinary household use, Vita-Mix will, within 30 days of receipt of the returned product, repair the failed Machine or component part of the Machine free of charge."

Vitamix 780 Blender Reviews

The Vitamix 780 get astonishing reviews.

I do like to include negative reviews for a balanced approach but there are very few negative reviews for this machine. There were a couple of faults which had to be returned and was replaced by the company. 

Of the three star reviews, a complaint about price, but that is really a buyers choice.  The company is known for its quality and super functional features and overall customer service for Vitamix seems helpful and responsive.

5-star Review: In summary; the Vitamix is expensive, but well worth the price. The key difference is the smoothness of your smoothie. The Vitamix will blend even the grittiest of vegetables such as carrots into a smooth drinkable liquid. And it is this that sets the Vitamix apart from other blenders. So, if you intend to use your blender for vegetable smoothies, you have found the right product.

5-Star Review: Best purchase ever! Vitamix 780 is so powerful yet much quieter than my cheap blender. I no longer have to 'chew' my kale green smoothie. I also did the 'black specks' test, and there wasn't any! The smooth panel looks good and works great. Before purchasing, I looked at all the Vitamix models and decided to splurge and get the 780. Love the preset programs. Expensive but so worth it. The package came with a tamper and a recipe book (not specified in the listing), so no need to purchase the tamper separately.
