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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love My BlendTec Bought this primarily to make smoothies without hassle! Had another high end brand that I had to stop every few seconds! Was such a pain. Love the settings on this - push the smoothie button and walk away. I also wanted a blender that would fit under my counter and that I could reach. This fit the bill. So easy to use - only drawback, like any well powered blender is the noise. But worth it to me to be able to blend w/out constant stopping to move food around. Easy to clean - a few drops of dish liquid, some water, and blend a few seconds. Thank you, BlendTec for making my mornings so easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Designer Series refurbished We are a Blendtec family. I sent my old Classic Blendtec (at least 9 years old) with my son this year as he left for college. I had also purchased Classics for my older son and daughter when they left home. They are both pleased with their Blendtecs and use them frequently. I decided to try the new Designer style. I've had the blender for several weeks and am very happy with it. The children still at home use our Designer Blendtec several times a day for smoothies. I am pleased with how well it blends the vegetables in my green smoothies. I'm hoping for this one to perform as well as my other Blendtec.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A true workhorse! Learning curve for advanced uses The biggest bummer is that ice cream is a bit finicky: make the mixture too thick and you'lll end up with big ice chunks. Likewise if you toss too much frozen goods in a smoothie, there's a chance that you'll get some over-sized chunks which can be a bit jarring! Apart from that, I am a huge fan of this blender. I use it for: smoothies (SO good and SO easy for this one), making nut milk & flour (coconut and almond so far), baking (small recipes, like the naan in the cookbook), hummus/purees, soup (so far just broccoli cheddar), and ice cream. Oh, and for grinding flax seeds! It's got a lot of utility, and the recipes in the cookbook are generally very good, especially to know what sort of volumes and ratios to work with. I'll admit that there are some nuances to knowing how much material, esp. frozen goods, you can work with in one batch, but the power, reliability, and durability of the machine give me confidence that once you perfect your recipes, they'lll come out the same way every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kitchen item we own! When I first bought this, although the refurbished model saves money, I was nervous it would look like it came from a garage sale, or break quickly. Not at all! It arrived looking like it was brand spanking new, and has been an amazing add to our kitchen. We keep it out on the counter (our only appliance on the counter) so that it's easy to use on a whim. It's also very easy to clean, as you just fill 1/3 with hot water and soap... turn on high for 3 seconds and rinse. Your machine is clean in less than 2 minutes! I also love the dull blades so no getting cut when cleaning either. We use it constantly and I tell everyone what I good buy it was and how I am glad I was converted from being a die-hard Vitamix fan. The biggest pros between this and vitamix is the more powerful motor on the home model, digital button panel (it does look very nice and doesn't get dirty like knobs), and the squared jar. Vitamix is much harder to get your finished product out entirely because of the bumpy jar sides. With the blendtec wildside, you can easily scrape out every last drop of delicious homemade hummus, salsa, smoothie... with a spatula.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be great, but screwups at shipping. Took me a week to decide whether to get this one, the professional series, or a vitamix.. and i chose this designer series. After ordering i got an email apologizing for the week or more delay in shipping, but that it was on the way. It arrived VERY well packaged.. the box was smartly designed, which is good because it arrived looking like the post office played football with it. They shipped it with no lid. What a let down. I reached customer service after the weekend and they have sent me a new one, another 2 week delay of course....I feel teased, its sitting there so gorgeous and i cant use it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features We bought this in Dec, 2013, and have been very please with it. We were having problems and realized it was our fault- we were filling it too full. Really important to fill only half full!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blender I bought a refurbished designer series about two months ago. I eat at least one shake a day but often two or three. This blender does an amazing job. My previous blender would leave large clumps of unblended ingredients whereas the Bledtec always creates an even blend. So far I very impressed.

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.

Hi!  I understand this is the discontinued "original model" Designer Series. What are the differences between it and the newer models? Will this model still be available for warranty in the next 7 years if needed? Thanks!

Asked by: CoryZ
The biggest difference between this model and the newer ones, is the cycles and colors. This model will still be under warranty if it needs repairs.

Is this commercial grade?

Asked by: lynn1
You cannot use this blender for commercial use, it is a home blender. If you use it in a commercial setting the warranty will be void. It is best if you purchase one of our commercial blenders. You can call 800.748.5400 for assistance with purchasing.
