Vitamix 6300 and 7500 Comparison Review
Are you wondering whether to invest in the Vitamix 6300 or 7500 as well as being after a bit of clarification over the exact differences between the two models? If so, this comparison guide should be able to help you out, we carry out a clear break down side by side comparison analysis so you know exactly what features you are getting in the Vitamix 7500 that you aren't getting in the Vitamix 6300 and vice versa. Then to conclude we will ultimately come up with an answer as to which is the best vitamix blender to buy for you, specifically.
Note: the Vitamix 7500 and Pro 300 models are exactly the same. Also, the listed prices are just a point of reference, with a bit of shopping around, you will be able to find much cheaper prices, remember though Vitamix blenders ain't cheap.
Variable Speed Option
Both the Vitamix models have the Variable speed option, whereby you can alter the velocity of the blend via the dial at the front, on 10 separate increments. This being said, the Vitamix 7500 (pro 300) is what we refer to as a next gen model (pro 2012) which has been fitted with a more powerful and efficient motor (due to the better cooling systems integrated) -- this hence results in all around higher performance blending performance.
Pre Blending Setting Programs
The Vitamix 6300 has been integrated with Vitamix's pre set programs, which is absent from the Vitamix 7500 model. This is a clever feature that essentially allows you to 'set and forget', so you can walk away and get on with doing something else. It saves you time having to adjust the right velocity setting on the Vitamix as well as stand by waiting for it to get the right consistency (the 6300 does all that for you).
Next Gen Features
As mentioned just above the Vitamix 7500 is a next gen model whereas the Vitamix 6300 is considered old gen. There have been a number of improvements -- firstly in the fact that the vitamix 7500 is forty percent quieter in operation than the 6300.
However, the most practical although rather minor alteration in all truth is the changed shape in containers. They both have the same capacity, however the newer gen models are shorter and wider -- this allows for a number of advantages. Firstly, a shorter blender makes for an easier one to store away than the Vitamix 6300. Also, the ingredients get more contact with a bigger 4 inch blade (than the 3 inch version in the 6300) -- ultimately resulting in a better overall blend.
The wider container also makes cleaning it out easier as well as scooping the produce easier tool (compared to a taller and narrower container).
What Vitamix Blender Will You Get?
Summary of Differences & Which Vitamix to Buy?

Firstly, there's no doubt Vitamix blenders are expensive, that being said they will last you literally a lifetime (hence such an extensive warranty coverage). For me, I'd get the Vitamix 7500 (pro 300) as it is the better blender and it is cheaper, the only aspect the 6300 has over it is the pre set programs, which many users have claimed to be dissatisfied with anyway.
