The Twister™ jar is designed to blend your thickest recipes, such as nut butters, hummus, baby food, dips, thick shakes, dressings and more! Best of all, the Twister jar is compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders.

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.

  • Patented Twister lid
  • Mini Gripper™ lid for containing thinner blends
  • Patented single-prong tuned wingtip blade
  • Easy-to-read jar markings up to 16 fl oz
  • Durable BPA-free material that stands up to heavy use
  • Compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders, not compatible with Blendtec mixers.
  • 3-Year Warranty

  • Dimensions: 4.75" wide x 7" deep (with spout and handle) x 7.5" tall (9.75" with lid)
  • Actual weight: 1.5 lbs (0.68 kg)
  • Shipping weight: 2 lbs (1.36 kg)
  • 3-Year Warranty

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 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 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! :)

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 4 out of 5 by from It does the job I received this along with my refurbished Blendtec Classic. I use it to make sorbets and nut butter. As long as you don't overfill it, and you cut the frozen fruit for the sorbets to the right size (about one-inch cubes), it works well. I put in a lot of almonds one night while making almond butter and it took a few processes to get it completely smooth. Once I put the proper amount of almonds in, it worked fine.

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 Best kitchen accessory I own. Be it known that the twister jar might be the greatest add on accessory ever made for a kitchen appliance, better yet it is for what might be the greatest kitchen appliance ever made, the Blendtec. The nut butter, and pure frozen ingredient ice creams are stellar. 'Nuff said.

Can a one serving smoothie be made in the twister jar? How about half a serving for a person?

Asked by: christiroxs9
You can definitely make a one serving smoothie in the Twister jar. A half serving should be easy to make as well.

Has anyone tried using this to grind meat? If so, how does it do? 

Asked by: eva3
You can grind meat in the Twister jar. You will want to be sure you use the gripper lid and only do about 1 cup of raw meat, partially frozen and cubed, or cooked meat, cubed. Add cubed meat to jar and secure lid. Press "Pulse" 4-6 times until ground to desired consistency.

i am looking to buy a total classic and a twisted jar and i am unsure which size twisted jar to buy. the things i will be using my blender for would include baby food and milkshakes and probably smoothies.

Asked by: redbeard1585
The regular sized Twister jar will probably be the best option for you. Our Mini Twister jar does not come with a gripper lid, and is not good for blending beverages.

MAY I JUST GET THE BLENDER TO TAKE CARE OF MY NEEDS OR DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE THE TWISTER JAR AS WELL?

Asked by: SANDY19
The Twister jar is an additional item that makes thicker blends easier and quicker to do, but you do not have to purchase it.
