Although both the Vitamix 7500 and Vitamix 750 are superior models of juicers from one of the leading juicer manufacturers in the world, there are some key differences between these two products.
In this article, we’ll compare and contrast the Vitamix 7500 to the Vitamix 750 to ensure that you find the right juicer for your needs.
Despite having the more impressive model name, the Vitamix 7500 generally sells for a bit less than its sister model, the Vitamix 750.
The Vitamix 7500 is both a food processor and a blender, allowing home chefs to create a wide variety of delicious and healthy dishes. According to Vitamix, their machines can be used to create smoothies, baby food, fresh juice, and even soups.
The Vitamix 7500 comes with a 2.2 horsepower engine, a BPA-free “jug” or container that can hold up to 64 ounces (1.8 liters), a professional recipe book, and an instructional DVD.
First launched in 2013, the Vitamix 7500 is far quieter than many of its competitors. Despite having 10 different speed settings, the built-in vibration dampening engineering keeps noise to a minimum. Furthermore, a radial cooling fan and thermal protection system prevent the Vitamix 7500 from overheating even when blending or juicing thick, coarse fruits and vegetables.
Another nice feature that the Vitamix 7500 includes is a pulse option. This allows for fine tuning when mixing or blending, allowing the home chef to retain full control over the final texture.
The blades of the Vitamix 7500 have a top speed of 240 miles per hour, which is more than enough to chop and juice even the hardest fruits and vegetables. But the 10-speed setting allows for much finer control when blending and juicing softer foods. Furthermore, the Vitamix 7500 is really good at blending ultra-soft, leafy greens, making it a great choice for people who enjoy smoothies.
Despite its spacious jug, the Vitamix 7500 was designed to be easily stored. Measuring 17.5 x 7.7 x 9.4 inches, the Vitamix 7500 is short enough to easily fit in most standard kitchen cabinets.
But it is perhaps its additional features that make the Vitamix 7500 stand out from the rest of the pack. The Vitamix 7500 is quite good at making nut butters, beginning with low speeds to crush and chop the nuts and then ramping up to top speed in order to create creamy, smooth nut butters. The Vitamix 7500 can easily make healthy nut butters from peanuts, cashews, almonds, and walnuts.
Perhaps the Vitamix 7500’s greatest trick is making hot soups. Many home chefs add cold or frozen vegetables to the Vitamix 7500 (plus water) and then blend for a few minutes in order to create a piping hot soup.
The Vitamix 7500 is also quite easy to clean. The design of the jug is perfectly round, meaning that bits of food won’t get stuck in the corners. And cleaning the jug is as easy as blending warm water with a drop of detergent. Unfortunately, the Vitamix 7500 is not designed to be cleaned in a dishwasher.
The Vitamix 7500 comes in three stylish design colors: red, white, and black.
Very similar to its cousin with the longer name, the Vitamix 750 is a powerful food processor and blender. Likewise, the Vitamix 750 too has a rugged 2.2 horsepower motor with 10 speeds that can easily crunch through tough fruits and vegetables as well as smoothly blend soft foods like leafy greens.
The Vitamix 750 also comes with a generous 64-ounce (1.8 liter) container that’s perfectly suited for large quantities of soup, nut butters, baby foods, smoothies, and juices. And the Vitamix 750 also comes with a cookbook and an instructional DVD.
The Vitamix 750, however, has a different housing and vibration dampening system, making it a bit louder than the 7500. The Vitamix 750 also comes in several different finishes, including brushed stainless steel, black, red, and copper.
Where the Vitamix 750 truly shines, however, is that it comes with five presets. While most home chefs are used to operating their machines manually, the Vitamix 750’s preset programs allow you to press a single button, walk away from the machine, and then relax, knowing that it will automatically stop when it’s finished juicing, pureeing, blending, or making nut butters.
Indeed, it is because the Vitamix 750 uses a number of sensors to determine the consistency and texture of the food that you’re making that it costs a bit more than its similar cousin, the Vitamix 7500.
Otherwise, the Vitamix 750 is quite similar to the 7500. The Vitamix 750 has a pulse option, is compact enough to fit in kitchen cabinets, and has powerful blades rotating at 240 miles per hour. The Vitamix 750 is also quite good at making smoothies, (hot and cold) soups, nut butters, baby food, and juices.
If the ability to “set and forget” your Vitamix is essential, choose the 750. But if you’re looking for a quieter machine, choose the 7500.
