Can This Do What The Vitamix 750 Does?

Asked by: Chris Golden
In short, yes. The XL will have the same basic capabilities in that it it's blade will match or exceed the capabilities of the residential units while including the same size case. To be more specific, home use units have a dry-blade assembly, while commercial units come with either the ice or wet blade assembly. All these blades can get the job done, but commercial blade are designed to blend faster. This XL has it's own extra-large version of the commercial wet blade design, and thus will blend quicker than 750. In terms of power, the XL has quite a stronger engine (4.2HP rather than the 750's 2.2HP), which coupled with the blade design increases the blend speed, even for tougher products. In size, the XL comes with both the 192 oz. and 64 oz. containers, so it can use the same size container as the 750 or one approximately three-times larger. Both the XL and the 750 are quality made units, but if your needs demand it, the XL will offer the same basic functionality with more power and higher volume capacity for greatly increased speed.
