Vitamix offers Perfect Blend With Vitamix Attachments for convenience and enhanced functionality when processing food with your Vitamix blender. However, some of the accessories do not have a universal fit. Instead, each type is compatible with a specific model of Vitamix blenders. (also see Ultimate Ninja Blender vs. Vitamix Face-Off )

The blades are made with superior quality. They are made of hardened steel, sturdy enough to process even the most problematic ingredients and offer excellent edge retention so that you will never have to sharpen it.

Whatever your food processing needs, Vitamix countertop blenders offer a variety of accessories to work with. Most blenders come with a tamper tool compatible with their specific container. However, you will have to buy the majority of these accessories separately.
For instance, if you want a spare container for your Vitamix countertop blender or a different Vitamix food processor attachment, you may need to purchase each attachment separately.
With that in mind, note that most of the accessories for your Vitamix do not have a universal fit. Therefore, ensure that the attachments you purchase separately are compatible with your Vitamix blender.
