This is the latest model 1782. The 4500 has been replaced by the 2 Speed model 1782. The new model includes a lower price point, upgraded and improved recipe book, and improved faceplate graphics.
This is the new version of the Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend Blender (replaces 4500). This includes a new BPA-Free Carafe made by Eastman Tritan material, a new lid-locking mechanism which makes locking and releasing the lid incredibly easy, a brand new healthy recipe book, new faceplate graphics, and a new cooler running motor (less heat and longer run times!).
The Vitamix 1782 TurboBlend Blender (replaces 4500) is quite possibly the most versatile, high powered, and well constructed blender on the market. The machine itself is actually pretty simple and to the point. It has a two speed motor (switches) and an on/off switch. While the cost on this blender is pretty high we feel that once you use this blender you are guaranteed to see and feel the difference.
This comes with one of the most impressive recipe books that we offer. The addition of this recipe book certainly adds part of the value to this unit.
The motor of this unit is so powerful yet so balanced that you don't even need to hold the base for dear life! Just push the button and let it do its thing!

In the early 1920s, the founder of Vitamix, W.G. Barnard was a self-taught salesman of modern home products. In 1937, he introduced an all-new product to his line - the blender. This was the very first Vitamix machine. Today, Vitamix has been in business nearly 90 years and continues to grow. Some things have changed, but much has remained the same. New products are introduced nearly every year, but every Vitamix product, both commercial and household, is still built at the world headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio. Vitamix is still family-owned and operated, and the company is still firmly focused on the importance of quality and customer service. Vitamix will remain true to its mission: to be the best blending equipment company in the world.
