Blendtec Jars Side-by-Side-by-Side


A good portion of Blendtec magic comes from the jars. Blendtec jars feature a patented, single, wingtip blade, one of the features that allow Blendtec’s jars to effectively harness a Blendtec motor’s enormous power.

But performance comes from more than just the blade. Let’s look at the three jars that are currently available for Blendtec blenders.

WildSide Jar

We’ve discussed the strengths of the WildSide jar before—and even shown how others have copied the design when they couldn’t duplicate the WildSide’s performance. The WildSide jar has a wide base and a narrow fifth, or “wild,” side that changes the angle of the blending vortex; as a result, frozen ingredients are far less likely to form a cave above the blade. These features makes the WildSide jar great for large, cold recipes as well as more specialized blends, like bread dough. And, of course, making smoothies in the WildSide jar is never a bad choice.

FourSide Jar

When it came out, the FourSide jar revolutionized the world of commercial blending. Its square shape is much better at blending than traditional round jars. The jar also generates more friction, heating soups a little faster than does the WildSide jar. It’s also especially good for dry grinding and making smaller smoothies.

Twister Jar

You might have seen our previous blog post about Blendtec’s latest jar offering: the Twister jar. This jar is truly unique. Its patented scraper tines are incredibly effective—as well as super fun to use! The Twister jar is perfect for the thickest recipes. If you think something’s too thick to blend in the Twister jar—you’re probably wrong.

Of course, what you blend in your Blendtec jars is limited only by your imagination (and the warranty—so don’t go blending rocks!).

    I have the Wild Side jar. I make a lot of whole juice smoothies. I find that there is a LOT of air being incorporated into the smoothie. Any way to prevent or reduce the amount of air?


    I have a Model Number K-TEC ES-3 it has the 4 sided jar. It has the number 5080 on the bottom of the jar. The bearings seem to be out by the blades, the motor is great, the blade won’t go around in the jar. How do I try and get a replacement jar. I understood that when it was purchased 10 plus years ago that the bearing would never go bad since it was a sealed bearing. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, I have Blendtec wild side Jar. I want to blend small portion of Wheat Grass and Aloe everyday for my husband’s aurvedic medicine practice. Do you have smaller jar available? Current jar is too big for small portion of meds. Please let me know if you are planning to produce in future. I do not want to spend another hundred dollar for Majic Bullet just to get small jar..
