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 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 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!! I loved crushed ice so the first thing I did with this blender was fill it with ice and hit the crush button. To my amazement, the ice turned to powdery snow!! Everything from soups to smoothies - it always makes everything perfectly!, Love this machine!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size & Build! Using Nutribullit 900 for ease of use, containers and worked for a while. Cheap seals, blades and can never reach customer service. I finally purchased the twister jar to replace old jar and should have done this in the 1st place. Rocks! Blends so much better than NB900. Don't have to worry about ice anymore. Fits under cabinet perfect & easy to clean. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can't I make now? I finally have a complete set of jars: the Twister, the Mini-Twister and the Wildside I use my Blendtec every day make protein shakes, but I also make hummus, sauces, batters, nut milk, dressings, and dips using whichever of the three sizes of jars is right for the task. I made bean fudge over the holidays using my Mini-Twister jar since I didn't have the Twister jar yet, and I thought the Wildside jar was just too big. The fudge was good, but it hard to make in the Mini-Twister so that's when I decided I needed the Twister jar too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! I bought this so I wouldn't have to buy a separate appliance (food processor) to make my hummus recipe. I was trying to make it in the large pitcher but had to constantly stop/stir/start to get it to the right consistency. This pulverizes it in about 15 seconds while using the twister top constantly. The only negative is that it vibrates severely while mixing, not sure if that can be alleviated somehow but still happy with the job it does. Also super easy to clean!

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 1 out of 5 by from Leave lumps of fruit when making smoothie I just bought the signature series set which came with a twister jar a week ago. While the wildside jar was not able to pulverize the seed of the strawberry when making smoothie, this one is even more disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for mixing for one! I bought this so I wouldn't make too much for myself!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Twister Jar Works great at helping to blend thick smoothies. Only downfall is that the jar lid does not fit tightly (allowing it to 'twist') and liquid spills over, sometimes making a mess! I wish Blentec would offer glass instead of plastic jars.

does the twister jar scrape the sides when you are blending small amounts what is the purpose of the twister jar

Asked by: Link
Yes, the Twister jar comes with two lids, one is the Twister lid, which has tines that scrape the sides while blending. The Twister jar was built specifically for thicker blends, such as: baby food, hummus, nut butters, etc. It's also great for smaller blends.

I just bought the twister jar, do you have to keep turning the lid all the time or just once while it is blending when making nut butters?

Asked by: Maria 2
When using the Twister lid, you do need to turn it counter-clockwise for the whole blend. This ensures that it continuously scrapes the sides and gives you a thick blend. The Twister jar was built specifically with thicker blends in mind; such as: nut butters, milkshakes, baby food, hummus, etc. See it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amdqtMP9nFw.

What maintenance needs to be performed on the bottom gasket, so that in 2-3 months it does not chew itself up?  This is my 3rd jar, 1st twister.  Eventually, it's like the rubber gasket stuck to the blade and when we turned it on, the gasket desintegrated

Asked by: Ricksieminski
Here are some tips to help keep your jars running smoother, longer: - Spin the blade manually by the shaft on the bottom of the jar before each use to lubricate the blade shaft. - Don't use your jar as a storage container or let liquids sit in the jar overnight. - Wash your jar or use the Clean cycle immediately after use.

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.

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 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!

The Twister jar will fit on the HP3 motor base, but it fits on the machines a little different than most jars. The Twister Jar will actually straddle the corners of the base. So keep moving the jar around. The handle will line up with the corner of the casting (where the base of the jar attaches).
