Vitamix 3600 Specifications

The Vitamix 3600 can effectively grind fruits, seeds and grains for flour. It can also make hot soups by the friction of the blades.
Action Dome Assembly

The dome assembly is attached to an action-dome seal, an industrial rubber washer-like seal that prevents spillage.
