Hey everyone! I’m looking into getting a Vitamix to replace a nutribullet. I love the nutribullet but I think it’s time to upgrade. I’ve been looking into the Ascent 2500, 3500, and the personal series. I definitely want a few presets. I would just jump on the 3500 but most of what I will be doing will be smoothies for me. I also like having leftovers however , and larger batches for soups and desserts, etc.. Im looking forward to making soups, nut butters, and some desserts. I’ve read that the large pitcher is too large for single smoothies so would I need to get a smaller (48 oz?) pitcher? I’ve heard mixed reviews regarding the personal series. Are the two extra presets on the 3500 worth the extra money in your experience? Thanks all appreciate any input!
