Why the Twister Jar Was Developed

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

There’s nothing like dipping a cold, crisp apple into warm, creamy almond butter. People used to make nut butters in their FourSide and WildSide jar by adding oil or stopping the blender midcycle to scrape partially blended nuts off the sides of the jar. That worked, but Blendtec’s engineers thought there had to be a better way. We brainstormed dozens of concepts, selected the ones most likely to work and started prototyping. Our engineering lab smelled like almond butter for weeks! The end result is the one-of-a-kind Twister jar.

Making Almond Butter in the Twister Jar

With the Twister jar, all you have to do is turn on the blender and twist the lid! The two tines on the Twister lid push the nuts back to the blade while you’re blending. The result: warm, creamy nut butter in seconds. Want it crunchy? Just add a few nuts at the end of the cycle and pulse. Not into nut butters?  The Twister jar also works great for making perfectly blended hummus, flavored cream cheese and other thick spreads. Additionally, the jar is the right size for single-serving smoothies, baby food and many other recipes.

Whatever you’ve blended, you can use the custom-designed and specially contoured Spectacula, which comes with the Twister jar, to remove every last delicious bit from the jar. What would you like to try blending in the Twister jar?

    I must say thank you to the engineers. I love my twister jar and use it for almost everything, especially when I make nutella. Thanks

      Nutella is the best! I also really like crunchy peanut butter made using peanut m&m’s. The candy shell makes for a great crunchy texture, and the chocolate gives it a bit of a nutella feel.

    I would love to use this for nut butters… it works out in my food processor, but it takes a lot of time, which, as a high school student, I already don’t have a lot of. I’m saving up to buy a twister jar right now! I can’t wait until I can get “nut butter in seconds”! :)

    I clean mine by adding water, a few drops of soap and running the soup setting a couple of times. The water gets really hot and leaves the inside clean and sanitized.

    My Twister Jar didn’t last! Last night I was making hummus and it started making a LOT of grinding noise and was shaking violently so I had to stop it. When I looked underneath the blade, the gear was stripped and there were tiny metal shavings on top of the blender. I have always noticed the tiny metal shavings everytime I used the Twister Jar. I’ve only had it for maybe 5 to 6 months and it’s safe to say that I’ve only used it less than 20 times. I pretty much just used it for making nut butters, frozen berries, grind cinnamon sticks and hummus. To me that is unacceptable, especially paying $120 just for small jar. I have read a similar thing happened to one of the reviewers on Amazon. Hopefully they’ll fix that problem. On the other hand, my Wildside Jar still makes the perfect smoothies and crushes ice like it’s nothing.

    So when you say “There’s nothing like dipping a cold, crisp apple into warm, creamy almond butter. People used to make nut butters in their FourSide and WildSide jar by adding oil or stopping the blender midcycle to scrape partially blended nuts off the sides of the jar. That worked, but Blendtec’s engineers thought there had to be a better way.” Does that mean I can make nut butters in my four side? If so recipes please!!!
