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: 4.75" wide x 7.5" tall (with lid) x 7" deep (with spout and handle)
  • Weight: 1.5 lbs
  • 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 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 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 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 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 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.

Would the twister jar work better than the 4 side jar for waffle batter or dressings?

Asked by: lookstwice
Both jars work great for making dressings. The FourSide jar is ideal for waffle batters, but you can also make small portions of waffle batter in the Twister jar.

Does anyone know if this could be used with the vitamix? I know that the wild side  jar can be, but I would like to use this one. Thank you. 

Asked by: jules
The Twister jar will not work on a Vitamix blender. The only jars on blendtec.com that can be used with a Vitamix are the Rebel and XR jars. No other jar on our site is compatible with Vitamix blenders. http://www.blendtec.com/jars/rebel-jar http://www.blendtec.com/jars/xr-jar

Can the twister jar be used to make nut FLOURS (not butters), like almond, cashew or coconut flour?

Asked by: nuttycaro
Yes, the Twister jar may be used to make nut flours. Add the nuts to the jar and press "Pulse" several times, until desired texture is reached. Do not hold down the "Pulse" button or use the manual speeds or preprogrammed cycles, as they will turn the nuts to butter.

To blend 3 cup  acai bowl what's best Stealth 44oz container or twister jar? Is twister jar compatible w Stealth blendtec? Goal is to prevent having to scrape contents off the side and to blend on one speed verses 3-4 speeds till completely blended throug

Asked by: MIcman
The Twister jar will work the best for making an acai bowl. However, it is best to do quantities of no more than 2 cups at a time, because it is a smaller jar. The Twister jar is compatible with the Stealth, but if you are buying a home blender, you will want to look at the Professional 800.

I recently purchased a Blendtec designer series from Costco. It arrived in the mail and once opened I noticed the lid on the twister jar does not fit. It appears as though the prongs are about an inch too long. Is this a reported  defect?

Asked by: suzika
There appears to have been a mistake here. There is no defect with the jar or lid, but we do need to get you the correct equipment. Please call Customer Service at 1-800-253-6383 so we can get you what is needed.

Does the Twister jar fit to Q Series ABC blender? If there's a problem regarding the lid of the ABC blender, could it be avoided (for example, by using the blender without the plastic lid that covers the rubber lid)?

Asked by: Luiza
All of our jars are universal to all of our motor bases. All ABC models are designed to need the sound enclosure lid closed in order to work. If there is some issue with that enclosure, the motor base can be reprogrammed to be on manual mode, or replacing the enclosure would work as well. Customer Service can help you reprogram the motor base if necessary by calling 1-800-253-6383.
