You've seen him on TV and the Internet—that guy who sticks crazy things in his blender. He's Tom Dickson, CEO and founder of Blendtec®. Now you can own a very special Tom Dickson Extreme blender with more power than any other blender for home use. The Tom Dickson Extreme is 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, a full 20 amps, and it is 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.
*Note: A 20-amp receptacle and proper electrical circuit capacity are required.
Make dough for bread, hot soup and everything in between. With the full-color recipe book containing over 300 recipes, you'll learn how to make great smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milk shakes, cappuccinos, margaritas, muffins, sauces, dressings, salsas and more! 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.
The Tom Dickson Extreme comes with our exclusive technology that makes blending simple: When you push a cycle button, the Tom Dickson Extreme automatically speeds up and slows down, then shuts off when the cycle is complete, so recipes turn out perfect every time. The blender comes with 25 preprogrammed cycles, which can be used by scrolling through a simple menu, selecting the desired blend cycle and pressing Start. It's that simple. You can store up to 4 frequently used blend cycles in shortcut buttons so that you can access the cycles by simply pressing and holding the button. The blender does everything else!
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 chooses for celebrities, family and friends. Now you can own the same model used by famous music, TV, and movie stars around the world.

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!

Hello, Please send a photo of the plug for this blender. We have a 20 amp circuit, but I want to make sure we get the right type of receptacle. Thanks, Mary Delaney Penick
Asked by: mnyc
Most 20 amp receptacles will have one blade hole turned opposit then the other one. Anotheer type the blade recptace will be like a normal one except it will look like a "T" on it's side, while the other one will look like the normal one you use on lamps etc.

Are there any cases in which it's better to use the FourSide jar over the WildSide jar?
Asked by: joet
The biggest difference between the two jars, is that the FourSide makes smaller portions.
