Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dressing and sauce maker! I got this with my Blendtec and I'm really glad I got it along with the Wildside jar. The larger jar is great for the smoothies and larger preparations but more awkward to use with smaller recipes for dressings, marinades and sauces and this one is perfect . I am also looking forward to getting the next larger "Twister Jar" for larger batch recipes of nut butters and my healthy Cocoa, Nut & Seed Dessert Balls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just The right Size I bought the blend tech machine almost a year ago, and decided this mini blender would be perfect for mixing up just a small smoothie. It is just the right size for making a healthy snack. You can throw in an orange or an apple and cola you have instant juice...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tool! The mini twister jar came with my wildside and total blender. I really love it! I've made nut butters and aioli and hummus with it among other things. My husband likes jalapeno cream cheese for his bagels, and I make it in less than a minute with this! Plus the Spectatula is an amazing little gadget! I can't wait to get the bigger twister jar now so I can make larger quantities!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly Love this little machine, it works perfectly. One thing to keep in mind when using, you must keep ur hand on the top to prevent any spillage especially if ur grinding dry ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hummus! I adore my twister jar! I was excited to get this so I could make small batches of hummus and peanut butter among other things. I have made both regular hummus and red pepper hummus from the included recipe book and not only are the recipes great, the twister jar allows me to keep all of the ingredients in the "mix" and results in a perfect consistency every time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size, no spout, no lid I bought this because I thought it would be a great size for making vegan cheeses, one-serving vegan ice "creams", nut butters and pulsing spices/nuts/seeds, and it is! The only downsides to it is that there's no spout like the other jars or a good lid (just the twist lid). No matter what you make, it's nice to have that spout — less mess when you pour the contents out. If they had included a spout, the Twister Jar's lid would have fit perfectly on it so they wouldn't have needed to design a new lid and then customers could have used this for thinner blends, too. I consider this is a design flaw but I guess from their perspective, it will get you to purchase the Twister Jar as well. Note: I do use the Twister Jar's lid on it. Liquid comes up the inside edge of the lid because of the lack of spout but at least I'm able to do small batches of thinner blends. The missing spout is the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. I really hope Blendtec will rethink the design or at least make a lid for it. Just like the tech industry, they need to think about how customers will use it instead of how they decide it should be used.

Does it grind small things like cumin seeds into a fine powder? 

Asked by: Sara1
The Mini Twister jar will grind cumin seeds into a fine powder. However, because it does not come with a gripper lid, we recommend grinding small portions at a time while holding the Twister lid on the jar.

Is there a plan to create a mini-gripper lid for this jar? It seems there are a lot of people interested to buy one but you are turning a deaf ear to your customers. Is there a technical reason for this?

Asked by: vijars
The Mini Twister jar was not developed to handle small quantity thin blends, but instead small quantity thick blends (hummus, nut butters, baby food, etc.), which is why a gripper lid was never developed for it. We appreciate our customers feedback on this, and hope we can come up with a solution.
