The Pro 500, Vitamix’s most advanced home blender. This model takes all of Vitamix’s latest advancements found in the Pro 200/CIA series and bumps it up a step further. With this blender, you get three pre-set settings: smoothies, frozen desserts, and hot soups. These settings are timed, and provide the right amount of power to the motor to get you that perfect texture every time. For all other blends, you still get the pulse switch and the classic variable speed dial to give you maximum control.
