Designer Series Certified Refurbished is rated 4.6538 out of 5 by 52.
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 5 out of 5 by from Great Blender! I had a few reservations when initially purchasing the blender, but ti turns out they were unfounded. I felt like the touch screen would drive me crazy, but I tested it out in the store before I bought it and I loved it! I really recommend trying it in a store if you can because it's actually really classy and convenient. I was also worried about the lack of a tamper for when making butters and ice creams since I couldn't be bothered to buy the special Twister Blend Jar. You can make your tamper own or order them unofficially online for super cheap and if you make them right then you're good to go! It blends everything wonderfully and I love it! I definitely recommend it.

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 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I bought this blender after looking around for more than 2 years. I was hesitant because of the price. In fact, I kept the blender in the original box and did not uncrate it for 3 weeks after receiving it. Wow, did I waste time! I am so glad I plunged and bought this blender because I use it every single day. I make soups and smoothies and foam milk at night-the use is endless. If anyone is looking for a blender that will last forever, this is it! I purchased a refurbish and I do not regret my purchase at all. Best of all, I bought the blender on the 3 payment plan what could be better. I can go on and on but I will end by saying how happy I am with Blendtec, go on and buy this blender you cannot loose! Thanks Blendtec.

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 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 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.

They're all out of stock as of 9/29. When will they be back in stock? Is the champagne option ever going to be offered again? Is there another means of purchasing Designer refurbished blenders, like in store, etc.?

Asked by: brittanie

Hello, I see lots of "new" & "factory refurb" units on other sites & on eBay. Would these also have the 7 year warranty? Also, would the warranty still be honored on a lightly used unit? Thanks. 

Asked by: bikebaker
If the blender is new, it has an 8-year warranty, and if it's refurbished, it comes with a 7-year warranty. If you buy a used model from someone else, the warranty carries over. So for instance, if they bought a new blender and had it for three years, it would have another five years left on it when you buy it.

Is the part number '1003219' the part number of the refurbished model that is being sold as 'new' on Amazon?

Asked by: germ
We don't have model numbers in the traditional sense but a quick Amazon search shows that this is the same model.

Why is there a two pound difference in weight between the two refurbished models?

Asked by: Loretta
The base of the Designer Series refurbished model is two pounds heavier, which keeps it more stable when doing powerful blends.

When are you getting the Designer Series Certified Refurbished in champagne back in stock , also what is the difference between the Designer Series Certified Refurbished and the Total Blender Certified Refurbished?

Asked by: Kacey189
Because our refurbished blenders are dependent on blenders coming in to be repaired to then be sold again as refurbished blenders, we can't say with any guarantee when a certain color will be back in stock. The biggest difference between the two refurbished models, is the design. You can learn more about both blenders here:
