Vitamix Introduces 780 – the Sleekest

Vitamix introduced the 780 – the sleekest, most streamlined Vitamix machine to date. The Vitamix 780 boasts the advanced, high-performance blending the company is known for, now enhanced with capacitive touchscreen controls. Modern and sophisticated, the machine's scratch-resistant, hardened-glass touch screen cleans with a single swipe. It is designed with an appealing vertical orientation of controls, engineered for ease of use and walk-away convenience. The Vitamix 780 makes blending intuitive, creating entire recipes with a single touch. The machine features five pre-programmed settings for Smoothies, Frozen Desserts, Hot Soups, Puree, as well as a Cleaning Cycle. Users can watch the machine as it cycles from one speed to the next on the vertical controls as programs run. An automatic shut-off at the end of each cycle takes the guesswork out of blending speeds and times, to ensure consistent results. Powerful and versatile, the Vitamix 780 is also equipped with a Variable Speed Control that adjusts from low to high with the swipe of a thumb to process hearty ingredients, like leafy greens, frozen fruits and crunchy vegetables. A fully variable Pulse action can be used alone and in tandem with the pre-programmed settings or Variable Speed Control to effortlessly create a variety of textures. The tamper helps blend thick or frozen mixtures with perfect results every time. The Vitamix 780 has a compact and modern design that fits under most kitchen cabinets, keeping it readily accessible on the counter for daily use. It delivers quality blends and takes the place of several appliances, freeing up valuable counter space. The low profile 64-ounce, BPA-free container includes a hardened stainless steel blade and wider base for finer blending. Enhanced airflow management, similar to Vitamix commercial blenders, dramatically reduces noise, offering quieter blending. This feature also improves motor cooling for longer, more robust processing of even the toughest foods. The Vitamix 780 has a suggested retail price of $699.95, and includes a cookbook and a full seven-year warranty. It is available in a premium, easy-to-clean black finish exclusively at Williams-Sonoma.
