Cleanup as Easy as 1-2-3

Every recipe ends with the dreaded cleanup. We've made cleanup amazingly simple by designing a flat, sealed touch area and a smooth motor base. A quick wipe with a damp cloth and your Blendtec is as beautiful as the day you brought it home. Plus, like all other Blendtec blenders, there's no messy tamper to fuss with while you're blending.

Easy clean up

The Swiss Army Knife of Blenders

Blendtec's Designer Series will be the most-used appliance in your kitchen because it can do the job of many appliances. It's a whole juicer, meat grinder, latte machine, bread mixer, ice cream maker, grain mill, coffee grinder, milk shake mixer, and blender.

A Higher Standard

Sometimes, Less Is More

We know that even in the biggest kitchen, counter space is limited. So we carefully considered your real estate when we created the Designer Series. It fits easily under most cabinetry, and its slender design minimizes its presence while stealing the spotlight. Say good-bye to that big, old blender you stored out of sight and out of mind (and therefore didn't use very much).

1,560 Watts of Power

Our commercial-grade motor is the most-powerful motor available for home use. It's the only motor strong enough to drive the aggressive blade in our high-performance jars, so you don't need a messy plunger.

1560 watts of power

Finely Balanced Direct Drive

Our precision-machined socket connects directly to the motor, resulting in a finely balanced motor assembly. This feature reduces vibration and noise, a critical function with our motor speeds, and also increases reliability because the socket never needs to be replaced (unlike most other blenders).

Designer Series Certified Refurbished is rated 4.6098 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Machine It is fabulously easy to clean, which encourages more use. I appreciate the recipe book; it has gotten me going and now I feel comfortable experimenting a bit. We have the Wildside Jar and when I double the recipes for smoothies, sometimes another cycle is required to get everything well blended, but obviously that is not a big deal. Overall, it has been an absolute joy to use. Comparisons: When shopping it basically broke down to 4 options. 1. $30-$50 basic blenders, 2. $100-$200 "power" blenders like the Ninja, etc 3. Blendtec 4. Vitamix. We have had/used several basic blenders and they work for basic things but don't really work/inspire use beyond simple tasks. Next the $100-$200 purposeful power blenders, we had one of these. It lasted 2 years mostly worked but it still had limitations and was annoying to clean. So it came down to Blendtec v Vitamix. We had not used either one. We picked the Blendtec, here are the post purchase thoughts: Positive: 1. Some say it is loud, it is but not abnormally loud for being a blender; 2. Very easy to use/clean; it works much better than cheaper blenders. 3. Modern feel, look, size. 4. Customer Service was very good so far. Negative: only one, some of the reviews for vitamix claimed smoother (i.e. less fiber) smoothies; I think this might be possible. The blendtec smoothie results are completely acceptable but I think there's a little room for improvement. If you are thinking about it, here's how I thought about it. If you want a magic machine you may be satisfied or you probably will be disappointed. If you want a superior blender which is easy to use then you will be satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of power! We really like it. Our friends have a Vitamix, and they have to use the tamper stick to push everything down into the container. You do not need to do that with the blendtec. The reconditioned unit arrived in very good condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy To Use! I got this blender as a birthday gift and it has totally changed how I use my kitchen. I have been eating even more healthfully than I usually do, and have become mildly addicted to smoothies and soup. I've also made salsa, attempted a bread from my own recipe, and a few nut milks. It's pretty much the best kitchen tool ever. However, you should seriously consider having UPS hold your blender at one of its stores if you live in an area where packages are frequently stolen. The box is clearly marked "Blendtec".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect, awesome, love it! Previously had a ninja, but it doesn't blend the harsher produce (i.e. kale) very well... went back and forth between a blendtech and vitamix and landed on blendtech.. both are great blenders.. we LOVE our blendtech.. powerful motor, easy to clean, and pulverizes kale and anything we throw at it! love the automatic time for blending feature! and haven't had any problems at all with the refurbished one!... smoothie calling me.. gotta go!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Fabulous! I've had my machine for two months and I just LOVE it! I've only made smoothies so far but am anxious to try some soups once winter arrives. I love how easily it cleans up (no sharp blades!) to worry about. If you are thinking of buying one I would highly recommend this model. Oh yeah, we went out to dinner the other night and had a drink at the bar and guess what they were using to make margaritas? You got it ... they loved it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!! I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Blendtec is simply the best. I've used many blenders being a raw vegan gourmet chef, Blendtec beats them all! I love the shape of the vessel it makes it so easy to clean. The motor is so fast and efficient you don't even have to use a plunger! Not to mention how quiet it runs. Thank you Blendtec for creating such a sleek, wonderful, gorgeous product! Just looking at it makes me happy! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second Blendtec! My first Blendtec is the Total blender and I love it so I bought the Designers Blendtec for my country house. It does an outstanding job even on chia seeds. However, with the digital controls on top, don't turn the power switch on or drop anything on the controls and try to wipe it off before securing the top!
Date published: 2014-12-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy and Works Flawlessly! My morning smoothies haven't been better. Some products didn't blend as well due to the much higher power of the Designer Series than my previous Nutribullet (milks and some dairy products would get a frothy head), but once I figured out the right product combinations, the drinks were flawless. Blendtec offers an A+ product and even better customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Machine There's no doubt Blendtec is the crown jewel of blenders. I purchased a refurbished model and must say I had to remind myself it wasn't brand new. Everything from packaging to cookbook to the blender itself was brand-new. Would definitely purchased refurbished over new. I used the money I saved to purchase the twister jar. Which, by the way, I love!
Date published: 2014-06-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful! This is a great blender! It is a little loud, but this should be expected by something that has so much horse power. I haven't found anything it couldn't blend smooth in a quick manner. The recipe manual is an awesome added benefit. I didn't expect to get one because it was refurbished. And the touch screen is beautiful! Looks great in my kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes it can! The first day I received my refurbished Blendtec I used it immediately to make a fruity smoothie using the preset button from the recipe book that came along with it.. It works as amazingly as it looks. I've used it to make batters, drinks, & shakes. I'll be using my blender for much more. So far so good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks nice under my cabinet This machine is the loudest blender I have ever had. If I put 2 halves of a frozen banana in there it takes quite a while to blend it up and still leaves chunks. I don't use the blender as often as I thought I would due to the noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love our blender! Its amazing how many times we use this blender. Sometimes up to three times a day. It works as advertised and has great features. It's a bit loud but any blender with this much power is loud. We use it for shakes and soups primarily.
