For the Thickest Blends

The Twister jar features all of these unique Blendtec advantages:

  • Extra-strong, patented single-prong tuned wingtip blade
  • Easy-to-read jar markings up to 16 fl oz
  • Made from impact-resistant, BPA-free copolyester
  • Compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders (not compatible with Blendtec mixers)

The Twister jar is ideal for:

  • Bread & cookie crumbs
  • Nut butters
  • Hummus
  • Baby food
  • Single-serve smoothies

To use the jar, simply add ingredients and twist the lid counter-clockwise while the blend cycle is running. This twisting motion forces the ingredients from the sides of the jar back into the blade, allowing you to achieve a perfect blend every time.

Also included is the Spectacula™ spatula—engineered specifically for the Twister. We made this spatula just the right length and shape so you can get nearly every morsel out of your jar.

  • Capacity: 37 oz, with measurements up to 16 oz
  • Dimensions: 5.7" wide x 7.5" tall (with lid) x 5.7" deep (7" with spout and handle)
  • Weight: 1.3 lbs
  • 3 year warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Perfect for single serve drinks! I am so happy I got this! The mini that came with my blender is ok for small jobs. But the reg size is better because it also has a reg gripper lid so you can make single serve drinks. I also like to make almond butter. So far I'm thrilled with the versatility of this and clean up is a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this jar! I have used this jar multiple times every day since I took it out of the box! I've made the Berry Soft Serve recipe from the recipe booklet every day. I've make Raw Ranch Dressing, Macadamia Cream, Raw Russian Salad Dressing, just to name a few. Our whole family is just in love with this new jar. The spatula is an engineering triumph and it actually gets out every last bit of our expensive organic nut recipes with ease. We are impressed with the removable lid centers and recipe booklet too. All the pieces of this package are well thought out and well worth the price. Bravo, Blendtec, you've put together something worthy of your amazing blender. No cheaping-out on anything. We are customers since 2006.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have for hummus, nut butters, and more... Wasn't sure how handy this would be, but I'm a big fan of hummus and spreads, so I thought I'd try it. What I didn't realize was that its more petite size fits perfectly under counter when atop my blender, and it's just the right size for a morning smoothie for one. I put in all my fresh greens and fruits with a little ice or water, and get 16 oz of heaven without using the bigger Wildside or Standard jars. LOVE IT! Clean up is simple too. Great product for the money, and dramatically different than any other offering from Blendtec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Blender! Lets get the negatives out of the way... I haven't been successful in making ice cream, even when I follow the recipes provided but its not a big deal to me because it works great for all the things I actually bought it for. I had a hard time with thick things in the regular Blendtec blenders, but the twister jar can whip through all those troubles with ease. I have made super thick hummus, awesome guacamole, almond butter, sesame tahini, and baby food. Its my go to blender for the things I make and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the preprogrammed settings! I received my Blendtec a week ago. I heard wonderful things about it from other reviewers online. It's BETTER than I expected, and easier to make all of the things that I bought it for than I thought it would be because of the preprogrammed settings. For example, I can make a green smoothie in 40 seconds by putting a little water in, filling it with leafy greens just the way I bought them, and tossing in a whole apple, or handful of berries and pushing ONE BUTTON, ONE TIME! It takes 8 seconds of preparation and 32 seconds of blending (where I do nothing but watch it adjust it's own speeds, and get a glass out of the cupboard). It takes me 20 seconds to clean up by rinsing the jar and lid with water and setting them upside down to air dry. It's so cool!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly! It isn't often you follow the instructions and get results like you saw in the video. But with this I followed the instructions exactly, simply pressing a few buttons and twisting the lid as I blended, and the nut butter was perfect. The other day I had apples but no peanut butter. But I found a jar of cashews and 2 minutes later I was eating apples with cashew butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic This blender jar has a brilliant design that really works for thick emulsions like nut butters. I have been using blendtec for 20 years and it's one of the companies that has continued to improve the quality of their already exceptional products over time. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Curry Paste! This new gadget helps me make Malaysian curry paste in a jiffy! However, the downside is the jar is discolored from blending all the spices, especially the turmeric & chilies. Also, wished it was cheaper so I could buy another one for my smoothies. I don't want my smoothies to smell like curry! :)

Would this be suitable to replace a food processor? 

Asked by: rox1984
All of our jars can act like a food processor including the Twister jar, although the Wildside+ jar is better for most types of food processing. If the food item is stickier than other ingredients and gets stuck on the sides then the Twister is better for those types of blends as the lid has tines coming down that scrape the food back to the blade when you twist it. While our jars can process food, it is not as consistent as a traditional food processor and therefore may not act as a complete replacement.

Can you use this Twister Jar to make Ice Cream?

Asked by: Andrew567
Yes you can. The Twister jar is great for thick blends, like ice cream, it can't make as much as the WildSide+ jar, but it can do it.

 There is just 2 of us now. Tried to make Hollandaise Sauce with the wild side jar. I needed the 4 side jar. Then saw your Twister jar vs mini twister jar? Any recommendation? Do you have a special deal for buying 2 jars?  

Asked by: Annie J
We don't offer a deal for buying two jars. If you are making a lot of sauces, dressings, smoothies, etc. for just two people, the Twister jar is a great option. It comes with the Twister lid for blending thicker recipes and the Gripper lid for blending smaller amounts of thinner recipes; like sauces and dressings.

What's the minimum quantity of sugar or spices like coriander I can grind in the twister jar? Can I grind as little as 2 tablespoons into fine powder?

Asked by: XiXi
PS from Annie J  In looking at all you specs if both the Four side jar & the Twister jar hold about the same volume & do the same recipes even ice cream but the Twister does nut butters etc would it be best to just purchase the Twister Jar?

What are the advantages/disadvantages of getting the twister jar over the mini twister jar? Does this simply come down to quantity or does one do certain things better than the other?

Asked by: jbert
The biggest differences are quantity and the gripper lid - the mini Twister does not come with a gripper lid, just the Twister lid. The Twister has both. This makes the Twister a bit more versatile as it can do the same blends you'd do in your larger jar on a smaller scale. Without the gripper lid, it doesn't have the same seal that prevents liquids from coming out of the top. Hope this helps!
