Vitamix 750 vs 780: Which High-Performance Blender is Best for you...?

Appearance and Design

This is one area where these two blenders are quite similar. The Vitamix 750 and 780 are entrants in Vitamix’s acclaimed Next Generation series otherwise known as the G-series. As with virtually all G-series models, they feature a 64-ounce Next Generation Low-Profile Compact Jar resting atop the motor or engine base. The 64-ounce blending jar is designed with a wide base which while perfect for large blends poses a bit of problem when blending smaller quantities of food. However, this slight inconvenience can be easily taken care of by purchasing Vitamix jars with smaller capacities. The Vitamix 750 and 780 are designed to be compatible with all Vitamix Next Generation jars in the market. It is very important that you do not use these blenders with jars designed for other Vitamix’s series.

The blades of the blenders are permanently attached to the blending jars, thus eliminating the need to assemble or dismantle the blenders before or after use. The motor base of both blenders features an easy-to-use control panel displayed on the front end.

The Vitamix 750 and 780 are similarly designed with clean, streamlined looks. They exude a sense of elegance, style, and portability.

(We’ll talk more about the design differences below in the Control Panel section)

Size and Storage

When fitted with the 64-ounce Low Profile Compact Jar, both blenders are of the same width and height, due to the reduced height and compactness of their low profile compact jars, you can easily store both blenders under your overhead kitchen cabinets. This is a very important feature. We have the Vitamix 6300 and we don’t have as many fully assembled storing options.

Weight

Both blenders have the same weight. Whichever blender you eventually decide upon, the considerable weight of the machine ensures that it would remain stable on your countertop when blending tough produce.

Color

You can purchase the Vitamix 750 in three different colors: red, black, and brushed stainless. The 780 on the other hand is available in just 2 color options: black and red.

Control Panel and Touchscreen Feature

On the front of the Vitamix 750’s motor base is a control panel complete with two knobs and a speed dial. You can use the speed dial to either select the blending speed you desire at the moment or choose a preset blending cycle. The knobs are to start or stop the blender and activate the pulse option.

The motor base of the Vitamix 780 also features a control panel, but rather than the manually-operated display of the 750, the Vitamix 780 has a LED touchscreen display. You can simply touch any of the visible icons on the screen to start or stop the blender, access the pulse feature, or start a preset cycle. By swiping the right-hand side of the screen in an upwards or downwards direction, you increase or decrease the blender speed. The Vitamix 780 is the first Vitamix blender to be designed with a touchscreen capability.

Accidents do occur in the kitchen; the blender base could slip out of your grasp, fall to the ground, and the glass surface of the touchscreen panel could shatter. Vitamix prepares for this eventuality by using hardened glass for its touchscreen display. So, if by some annoying quirk of fate, the base of your Vitamix 780 hits the floor, you can calmly pick it up confident that the touchscreen display would remain intact and the glass surface unbroken.

Pre-programmed Settings and Variable Speed

Both blenders are designed with 10 speed options and five pre-programmed blending cycles (Smoothie, Frozen Dessert, Soup, Puree, and Clean).

Cleaning

Cleaning the jars of either blender is a very easy task, as these Vitamix blenders are designed to be self-cleansing. All you have to do is to simply pour a significant quantity of warm water into the jar, add a few drops of dishwashing liquid, and select the Clean preset cycle.

The motor base needs to be cleaned immediately if riddled with food splatters or routinely cleaned for hygienic purposes. In cleaning the motor base, a clear difference lies between these G-series blenders. With the 750, you have to maneuver the cleaning cloth or sponge along and around the knobs and dials on the control panel, as food particles could easily reside in these crevices and become very hard to dislodge.

Users of the 780 sing a different and much easier tune. All you need is a cleaning cloth or wiper to wipe down the hardened glass surface of the LED display. And that’s it. No crevices and no extra fuss.

Power and Performance

When it comes to power, both Vitamix blenders are equally matched. Equipped with a 2.2 HP motor, these blenders can blend practically anything. The resulting mixture is usually creamy and consistent with zero lumps and no grainy or textured feel.

Warranty

Both Vitamix blenders are covered by a full warranty period spanning seven years. This excellent warranty gave us so much confidence when making our Vitamix blender purchase. It’s a high-quality, American made brand with an excellent warranty.
