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.

Features include all of these unique Blendtec advantages:

  • 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 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 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 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 It was not what I expected, it was better I ordered the smaller jar, and it was much smaller than I expected. I really do love it. I use it as my main jar now. I still will replace my cracked larger jar, that I have had for over 20 years. I use my blendtec everyday. Usually twice a day. Once for my morning juice and then I usually have spices etc that need blending at dinner.

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!

I have been using my Blendtec since's awesome.  Question--I need a new jar--one that will do smoothies as well as nut butters, soups, etc.  Have always had a 4-sided jar, and now looking at replacing with Twister that a good decision?  

Asked by: Lucille1867
Hi Lucille, The Twister jar is a great jar for making nut butters and thicker items. You can also make single serving smoothies in, be sure you put the gripper lid on for this. It would be a little more difficult to make soups in the Twister jar though. It's best to have one of our other jars, FourSide or WildSide+, and the Twister jar. If you have more questions about our jars, you can call 800.748.5400 for assistance.

I purchased the Blentec blender 2 years ago with the Wildside jar that worked beautifully for making whole green juice smoothies until the blade came lose at the bottom. Is the jar under warranty? If so, for how long and how can I go about replacing?

Does this machine make milk shakes? 

Asked by: Gary
The blenders do make milk shakes! The Twister jar would work for this as well as our other jars.

Can the twister jar be cleaned in the rapid cleaning machine?

Asked by: Gary
I'm not familiar with a rapid cleaning machine, however, we advise against putting the jars in dishwashers and instead washing the jar on the blender. Simply fill the jar with 2-3 cups of water and add a drop of soap, then put the lid on and place it on the blender. Run it for at least 10 seconds.

I have Blendtec Totalblender and the Twister jar DOES NOT fit the base of my Blendtec. Am I missing an adapter or are you wrong about  the Twister fitting all the Blendtec bases? Please help I paid $100 for something I can't use!!!

Asked by: Windy
It should definitely fit your Total blender. It does have a different base than our other jars - there are grooves in the jar that should be placed over the corners of the base. Please call our customer service team at 1-800-748-5400 and they'll help you out.
