  • 48 ounce Dry Container with Self Detect
  • Dry Overhead on Gray


Compatible with Ascent™ Series blenders only, this container is specially designed to efficiently grind fresh, whole-grain and gluten-free flour, mix batter, and knead thick yeast dough for pizza, soft pretzels, and homemade bread.

Self-Detect® Technology
Your Ascent™ Series blender will recognize the container and automatically adjust blend settings for its size.

Containers and lids are made of BPA-free Eastman Tritan®.

Easy to Clean
Container and lid are both dishwasher-safe, or let them self-clean by blending a drop of dish soap and warm water for 35 seconds.

Long-Lasting Blades
Laser-cut blades are crafted from hardened stainless steel, delivering better blends and longer life.

Specially Designed Tamper
Use the included Tamper to press thick and frozen mixtures toward the blades for faster, smoother blends.

Clear Lid + Lid Plug
A clear lid with leak-proof seal helps you monitor the progress of every blend.  A removable, vented lid plug allows you to add ingredients while blending, and doubles as a 2-ounce measuring cup.

Engineered for Whole Grains
The blades in our Dry Grains Container are specifically designed to create a reverse vortex, pushing dry ingredients away from the blades to prevent packing.

This container can be used with all full-size Vitamix® blenders, however SELF-DETECT® features are only available with Smart System machines.

48-ounce Dry Grains Container with SELF-DETECT™ is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 166.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from So sad that I got an unnecessary extra container just purchased a Vitamix A3500 and got the Dry Grains container with the specific purpose of being able to use my blender to make pizza dough and fresh pasta. Now I see that there's a recipe in the Vitamix website ( that shows the option to use the 64 oz container that comes with the blender. I felt that I had to purchase an extra accessory to be able to use the blender for certain tasks and that was not necessarily true. Had there been full disclosure on the product's description, I would've chosen the 48 oz wet blade instead (which I wanted, but was not able to afford due to purchasing other accessories).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my G-Series 7500 Vitamix....Perfect Fit! Just made Bread today [Feb.13th, 2021] and this Container kneads it perfectly, producing a dough ball faster and clean-up is easier than my original 32 oz. Dry Blade Container! This wonderful 'accessory' should be added to Containers compatible with G-Series Vitamix blenders. The wide-base is a better fit than the inside base of the 32 oz. Dry Blade Container! The word "only" compatible in the Self-Detect Ascent Series Vitamix units needs to be changed to 'also compatible with non-Self-Detech units, ie: 7500 & 750 series! 'H'

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It works enough, but I am not impressed. The actual blend variance of fine to rough blend is not as varied a range as I would use. And if I want to blend up a bag of grains to store prepared to use as needed in my baking day, this is not possible as it heats up so high. So the blending of a bag of grain is slow. No more than two cups at a time. With waiting for cooling after two blends. As well the machine menu does not match the guide suggestion in the publication with instructions & recipes. It works enough, but I am not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for grains! I actually have a very nice grain mill. It does a fantastic job when I want to grind large batches of grain. I purchased this for those times that I just wanted to do a small batch. It's perfect for grains that I don't keep a lot of. It won't grind it to the consistency of my larger mill but it gets it pretty darn close... close enough that I am still rating this with five stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for mixing dry food items. This was purchased to mix dry grains when needed. The first food item I made was peanut butter using peanuts only. It mixed the peanuts into a nice smooth blend. The peanut butter was used by our grandchildren who found it delicious without any additives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I use it to grind grains for bread, so amazing! Does a significantly better job then my old none vitamix blender. I don’t even have to sift because it does such a great job. Highly recommend if you want to grind your own grains

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I bought the Dry Grains container to chop the left over almond pulp after making almond milk. I tried using the wet container but the results weren't a fine enough blend. The dry container is specifically designed to push the dry ingredients into the blade for a much finder chop. Works great!
