Three program settings (for smoothies, hot soups, and frozen desserts) automatically adjust to the container size you've selected, process your recipes, and stop the blender when complete. Built-in wireless connectivity will allow Ascent series blenders to evolve with the latest innovations for years to come. Variable speed control and pulse feature let you fine-tune the Texture of any recipe. The motor base is able to read the container size you've chosen and automatically adjust program settings and maximum blending times accordingly. A built-in digital timer removes the guesswork with recipes you process manually, helping you achieve the perfect Texture every time. Pair with any self-detect containers, building a customized blending system designed to fit your needs.
