In this article, we will focus on the G-Series blenders : Vitamix 780 vs 750 vs 7500 vs 300 review.

One difficulty we face when going blender shopping is which brand we are going with. However, once we settle for one, another resurfaces: Which model am I getting? This is especially true when you decide to get a Vitamix blender.

Because Vitamix blenders are one of the high end blenders out there and hence, generally pricey, buying one is a big investment.

That is why, you are not the only one having a tough time to pick which model is the best for you. That is considering they have already released 3 series of blenders to date.

The G-Series Personal Vitamix Blender: Vitamix 780 vs 750 vs 7500 vs 300 review

vitamix 780 review

Vitamix 780 is the top-notch model not only in the G-series but among Vitamix personal blenders.

If you really want to say goodbye to those knobs and switches that you may find quite difficult to operate and clean, Vitamix 780 is the blender for you.

It is the only model in the G-series that makes use of a touchscreen panel. In addition to that, it already has 5 presets for automated blending, set for the common recipes owners make with their Vitamix blenders.

Because it also has a self-cleaning preset, its container is really easy to clean. This is the blender recommended for those with the highest budget for their blender shopping, seeing this blender is significantly more expensive than the rest.

Things We Liked

  • Its touchscreen control panel made of hardened glass and LED lights instead of the usual switches and knobs are a fancy upgrade.
  • Its motor base is easy to clean because of its touchscreen panel.
  • It has a self-cleaning preset which makes it easy and fast to clean containers after use.
  • It has other four other presets that are fit for the different kinds of blends and texture we usually make with blenders.
  • The low-profile container that comes with makes it easy to store in most kitchen cabinets.
  • Its blade has a wider radius for easier and faster blending.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Many would find this too expensive for a blender.
  • Its price difference from the other models is too high for the additional features it has.

vitamix 750 review

Like the 780 model, Vitamix 750 also has 5 presets for an automated blending.

It is the only model in the series that are produced with metal finish. Other than that, it is also offered in different colors aside from the usual black and red.

This is a cheaper alternative to the Vitamix 780, especially if you do not mind using classic knobs like the rest of the models to be reviewed.

This model is recommended both for professionals and home users.

Things We Liked

  • Its self-cleaning preset makes cleaning the container hassle-free.
  • It features automated blending (presets) for more convenient and faster blending.
  • Its wider blade radius and container makes blending faster and easier.

Things We Didn't Like

  • There were some complaints and issues regarding the older models. So if you are getting this model, make sure you are getting a new stock (produced September 2015 or later).
  • It costs an extra for the additional features mentioned above.

vitamix 7500 review

Looking for the cheapest alternative within the G-series of Vitamix blenders?

That would be the 7500 model!

While it is the cheapest, it surely does not fall far behind when it comes to power and performance.

Things We Liked

  • It is the cheapest among the G-series models.
  • Its power, performance, and durability are as good as the top-notch models.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Some may not find the upgrade worth it. They can opt to go for C-series models since the differences are only in noise levels and only a little in terms of power capacity.
  • It lacks the programmed settings found in 750 and 780.

vitamix 300 review

The 300 model is almost identical to 7500. You might be asking why Vitamix sells the same machine under a different name and packaging; well, that is not really something new with Vitamix.

So what makes Vitamix 300 different from Vitamix 7500?

It’s simply the accessories the come with each package. What all Vitamix blenders owners know is that their blenders come with cookbooks.

The one that comes with the 300 issignificantly larger, contains more recipes, and has better bounding.

Other than that, it is not much different from the preceding blender. We recommend this, together with the 7500, for home users and professionals looking for cheap alternatives of Vitamix personal blenders.

Things We Liked

  • The cookbook is thicker, larger, and better-looking than the 7500’s. It also contains more recipes.
  • It has the same power capacity, performance, and durability as other models.

Things We Didn't Like

  • It is basically identical with Vitamix 7500.
  • The additional recipes and better-bounded cookbook might not be worth the additional costs.

Comparing and Contrasting Vitamix 780 vs 750 vs 7500 vs 300

1. Design

The main thing that makes Vitamix 780 unique from the rest is its highly-responsive touchscreen control panel that is made of LED lights and hardened glass to make sure it is scratch and crack resistant. Because of this sleeker design and easy-tap buttons, it is much easier to work with. It is available in black and red.

The next model, Vitamix 750, is the only one in the series that is offered in Copper Metal Finish as well as Brushed Stainless Finish. Like the rest of the blenders, it makes use of classic knobs.

The low-profile Vitamix 7500 blender uses classic knobs and is available in three color variants: black, white, and red. Since it is identical with the 7500, Vitamix 300 also uses classic knobs. However, it is only offered in three colors: black and red.

2. Containers

All come with a low profile 64-oz. container. However, whatever model you are planning to buy, you may also purchase additional containers and accessories of different size.

If you frequently blend in small quantities (2 cups and below), we recommend that you get a 32 oz. container as well.

Note as well that C-series containers can work well with G-series blenders, but G-series containers can damage your C-series blenders as they require more power to work.

Vitamix also sells a 48-oz. container as well as a 32-oz. container dry grain; the latter is specifically for grinding (nuts, coffee beans, etc.) instead of blending.

3. Noise

All G-series blenders have a better sound technology applied to them than the C-series, and there is no noticeable or significant difference in the models’ noise levels.

Vitamix claims that their G-series blenders are up to 40% quieter than the C-series ones. Given that C-series blenders have a noise level of about 98-110 decibels, the G-series’ would be around 60-70 decibels.

This is a good feature for people who like to multitask while they make their blends. Other than that, the G-series also have features that include a radial cooling fan as well as a thermal protection system to avoid overheating.

4. Performance

So what makes the G-series different from the past blenders released by Vitamix?

For one, the G-series blenders have stronger motors and higher power capacity. A noise dampening technology is also applied to reduce the noise level;

The 780, 750, 7500, and 300 all have 2.2 horsepower peak capacity. They also have speed controls (speeds from 1 to 10) and a pulse switch which you can adjust in order to create the texture you want for your blends.

5. Convenience & Ease of Use

All four blenders have a 10-level speed control and a pulse switch which make it quite easy to control the consistency of your blend.

However, 780 and 750 are the easiest to use and are recommended for beginners because of their presets for automated blending:

  • Smoothie
  • Frozen dessert
  • Soup
  • Purée
  • Self-clean

Overall, the 780 wins in terms of convenience and ease of use due to its touchscreen panel (easy to clean and operate) and presets.

6. Clean-up

The good news is that all Vitamix blenders are quite easy to clean. With Vitamix 7500 and 300, you just have to add warm water into the container and blend for about 30 seconds.

Plus points go for both 780 and 750 though, because they have the self-cleaning preset. The 780’s motor is the easiest to clean because of its touchscreen control panel. Therefore, the 780 is also the best in terms of clean-up.

7. Cost

The thing you should know about the Vitamix G-series blenders is that this is the newer series. Think of it as the fancier series of Vitamix blenders.

As a later series, it has better technology applied to it, but of course, such improvements cannot come without a price.

That is because Vitamix makes sure that quality, power, durability, and performance are not compromised even when you get the cheapest ones.

This is why you can expect from the cheaper models as much as you can expect from the top-notch ones.

When you opt for the more expensive models within the series, it is more like paying for additional features rather than better power, or performance.


The Verdict: Vitamix 750 vs 780 vs 7500 vs 300 Which one will you choose ?

Having considered these things, our verdict is: the model you choose depends on whether you find the additional features/accessories worth paying for.

What you probably noticed is that there is not a big difference between the power capacity and blending qualities of these models.

All these models are similar, if not identical, in terms of power, performance, and durability.

Therefore, it is really up to your priorities and what features and accessories you think will help you or make your blending experience easier and more fun.
