The Most Extreme Blender Money Can Buy

You’ve seen him on TV and the Internet—that guy who blends crazy things. He’s Tom Dickson, creator and owner of Blendtec. Now you can own a very special Tom Dickson Extreme blender—a monster of a machine with enough power to blend everything from frozen fruit to nuts to grains and even rake handles. But don't try that at home.

Built-In or Tabletop Use

The Tom Dickson Extreme is our most powerful machine, backed by an impressive 10-year warranty. It can be built into the countertop to become a part of your kitchen's design and function, but it can still be moved to different areas by using the included tabletop base for parties, family gatherings, and other events.

Amazing Results

Make dough for bread, hot soup, and everything in between. The Tom Dickson Extreme comes with the FourSide jar, which holds nearly 2 quarts, and the WildSide+ jar, which has a 4" blade and holds nearly 3 quarts. You won't believe how fast and easy it is to blend whole fruits and vegetables and crush ice with no problems.

One-touch Blend Cycles

Blending has never been simpler. Just push one of the four preprogrammed blend cycle buttons, and the Tom Dickson Extreme does the rest, automatically speeding up, slowing down, and shutting off the motor automatically. The result? Perfect blends, every time.

Plenty of Power

With a 2400-watt motor and the ability to complete multiple kitchen tasks, it’s no wonder the Tom Dickson Extreme is the blender Tom personally chooses for celebrities, family, and friends. Now you can own the same model used by famous music, TV, and movie stars around the world.

Tom Dickson Extreme Blender is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The World's Most Powerful Blender! This blender is simply the best and most powerful blender on the planet. It is the best blender anyone could ever purchase for themselves. It may cost a significant amount of money, and it may require a specialized electrical supply with an accompanying outlet to operate; but it is well worth it. I encourage anyone even thinking about purchasing this blender to just go ahead and do it. Do not waste money on a smaller blender and wind up paying for this one later on. Don't make the mistake of purchasing a 13 AMP Total Blender only to eventually pay for this one too. Save the frustration, money, and time by purchasing the best product the first time around. Yes, this blender does retail for over double the price of a classic Total Blender; but it is also almost twice as powerful. This blender blows the socks off of the regular 13 AMP Total Blender. In other words, I do not hear this motor struggling or making pulsing/ surging sounds when making a smoothie. The 13 AMP total blender I purchased in 2010 often makes such sounds when making a smoothie. The 13 AMP blender also sounds noticeably labored when making a large smoothie. This 20 AMP monster blender exhibits no such signs of being underpowered. This blender does not seem to pulse or sound labored, it seems to supply a steady amount of power to blend smoothies. Additionally, the smoothies it creates are noticeably smoother and more completely blended. This blender may be labeled as an "extreme blender", but it will be the last blender you purchase in your lifetime. It has an outstanding 10 year warranty for a reason, it's a quality made product! If you are an individual that is questioning the large price tag, go ahead and purchase the $20 specials that are made in China; have fun with that game. I cannot see the reasoning in purchasing substandard, low quality products. Why not save yourself the time, money, and hassle by just buying the best product the first time around? Any products you purchase are an investment in yourself as an individual, so don't be cheap! As stated previously, this blender is powerful. It does require a dedicated 20 AMP circuit and outlet, keep this in mind before purchasing! I understand that this requirement is somewhat limiting, but if your residence is capable I encourage purchasing this blender. Upon arrival, the blender came in a regular unmarked brown box. I found this somewhat disappointing since the regular classic Total Blender I ordered in 2010 came in a printed box. I suppose Blendtec does not sell enough of these units to justify printing a special box for it. It is the contents that matter anyways so it's not a big deal. I just thought I would mention it since it is different than the standard Total Blender packaging. The package comes with a Will It Blend? DVD which contains the first 50 web episodes of the show. Behind the scenes and outtakes are also included on the DVD. It comes with an autographed picture card of Tom just as it is pictured in the product's image. The WILDSIDE+ jar that comes with the blender is also autographed. Unfortunately, I can see that these autographed products are printed and not actually autographed individually by Tom. This is rather disappointing, but they are still nice little bonus gifts. The smaller capacity four sided jar that comes with this blender package deal is not autographed. There is a hard covered, spiral bound recipe book that is also included in the package. Overall, this package deal is the best way to spend your money. You get more value per dollar spent considering the jars themselves go for about $100 a piece. The blender base is indeed chrome plated. This definitely adds a designer "show piece" aspect to the blender. When you look at it, you know you have purchased the absolute best Blendtec has to offer. Although the chrome base is indeed nice, I am worried about scratching the finish with regular use. I am also currently using my old WILDSIDE jar because I do not want to scratch and dull my autographed WILDSIDE+ jar. The blender does have four preprogrammed cycles that can be swapped out for others. The process completing this task is much like how a car radio's presets are set (hold button down to save selected blend cycle). It is also worth noting that this blender's motor is the same motor that was sold in the ICB7 Connoisseur commercial blenders, hence the impressive electrical demands of operation. In regards to noise, it is as loud if not louder than the 13 AMP classic Total Blender. The motor is larger and it does draw more electrical current than the smaller blenders, so that does make sense. The noise is not bad when blending liquid, it is only noticeably louder than the classic Total Blender when it is used to blend dry ingredients. The noise is also noticed as greater than the 13 AMP Total Blender when it is simply sped up to speed 10 on an empty jar. This blender is so powerful it feels as if the jar is going to be thrown off of the base when running on speed 10. To be honest, speed 10 with an empty jar sounds, feels, and looks down right dangerous! It will definitely take some time to get used to. In order to relate this sensation to something that might be more familiar, it is the equivalent to upgrading to a new V8 from a 4 cylinder banger, beater car. Overall, the noise does not lessen the value of this machine and neither does it's sheer power. It is a powerful appliance. Noise is to be expected, and with time I will get used to it's power. The blender motor can be recessed inside a counter top. I cannot comment on this aspect since I will not be using this feature. Although I will not be using this feature, I do have to question how an individual would access the power switch or even see the digital display for that matter. I suppose if the blender motor is recessed within a counter top, the user could always just lift it up and place it back into the base to reprogram it. This does seem cumbersome, I would love to read how others approach this stated issue. One thing that I did notice as an inconsistency was the product's image on this site. The product image on this site clearly shows "MADE IN USA" on the front of the blender, unfortunately mine does not say this. This is clearly only a cosmetic inconsistency with the product picture and does not lessen the review rating of the actual product. As stated previously, save yourself time, money, and hassle; buy the best product the first time. Do yourself the favor of purchasing the most powerful and longest warrantied product from Blendtec. Their lesser powered blenders are good, but this blows them all away. Buy once, cry once! Get the most for your dollar whenever purchasing any item for yourself, being cheap only ensures that will not happen. Purchasing inferior products that will be replaced by future products that yield better results is the equivalent of wasting money. Do yourself a favor and save the money necessary to purchase superior products. Buy once, cry once!

Can this blender safely blend leftover or raw bones and eggshells into a sort of bonemeal for our garden? If so, would that void the warranty?

Asked by: Jenna
We consider bones and eggshells to be food and therefore they are safe to blend and it does not void the warranty, The warranty does not cover cosmetic damage like scratching, scraping, or scuffing of the jar and tougher/sharper ingredients such as bone have a higher potential of marking up the inside of the jar, so use caution.

How loud is the blender, in decibels at 1 meter?  How does that compare with other blendtec blender models I may have heard ( at Costco for example)? Thanks

Asked by: Albireo
This depends on what is being blended. The blender with nothing in it at full speed will be in the high 70s decibel range. If you are blending hard dry items like wheat it can get up to the 90 db range. This model does have a bit more power behind than other models, so it may be louder at times.
