Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Vitamix Self-Detect Blending Bowl Starter Kit, 8 oz, Clear. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.20 stars, and the price range is $37 - $99.

The Vitamix Self-Detect Blending Bowl Starter Kit is a set of plastic, clear blending cups that work with most Vitamix blender models. These clear 8-ounce cups fasten tightly to the blade cap, making for a mess-free preparation. The kit comes with three BPA-free cups and a blending top that is able to chop, puree, and even blend foods like salsa, smoothies, baby food, and more. This kit works with the Vitamix Ascent and Venturist series blenders, making for an extra set of cups and lids for food preparation and storage.

Customers say this product works well overall, with the ability to fit the specific Vitamix models. Many say as long as you read which specific models these cups work with from the start, you will run into no issues with use. Customers say the blender is easy to get started, thanks to the auto-detection blend system, and is also easy to clean up because of the simple two-part blender appliance. Plus, all parts of the system are dishwasher safe.

Some say they struggled with getting the blender cap onto the cups, and even had issues with fitting these on the current model they already have. Before purchasing this product, look closely at the specific model you have to ensure it works properly. Those who did that encountered no issues.

A great addition to the larger containers--speaking of which--the plastic used in these smaller containers stays clear whereas their bigger brother gets foggy.
