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.

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 3 out of 5 by from Functions great but... I appreciate the size and multifaceted functionality of the twister jar. I am however, disappointed with the fact that it stained the second time I used it. For the jar to stain indicates a level of porosity that is of concern. No matter what I have tried the stain does not come out (even after 20 additional uses with food item not containing any yellow). All foods have also been organic so no chemicals or artificial ingredients.

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! :)

what blendtech model does this little jar fit on? I have an ES3 and it seems like I need an adaptor to the base because this little jar doesn't fit.

Asked by: DonS
The Twister jar will fit on all Blendtec blender bases. Be sure that the arches on the bottom of the jar go over the corners on the base.

Can I use this to make nut flour? 

Asked by: fbourget
The Twister jar might be used more for making nut butters. The Twister lid brings the sticky pieces of nuts back to the blade and will release the nuts oils to make butter. Nut flour can be made in this jar or any or our other jars as long as the nut is not over blended and stops before the oils are released. This may be accomplished more easily in a bigger jar like the FourSide or WildSide+ jar.

Why is this twister jar not compatible with the Mix and Blend model?

Asked by: juliefes
The Mix n' Blend is our only blender motor with less than 3.0 PHP (peak horsepower), having a 2.0 PHP motor. This is plenty of power for the Fourside jar but other jars like the Wildside+ jar are too big and heavy. The Wildside+ jar requires too much torque to blend properly and could damage the motor. The same is true for the Twister jar due to the nature of ingredients used for this jar being for much heavier and thicker blends. It could probably work to some degree but is not recommended due to the potential of harming the motor.

how to you keep things from falling under the blades and not getting blended? Like nuts?

Asked by: kbfree
If this ever happens, adding more nuts helps push all the nuts around and get all the food blending.
