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
Twister Jar is rated 4.6786 out of 5 by 56.
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 I purchased the Twister Jar two years ago and love it. It is perfect for making pesto, raw almond butter and tahini, and anything thick that needs power to make it. Buy this jar and you will use it all the time.

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. I used it today and it leaves lumps of pineapple and strawberry in the smoothie. Very disappointed, thinking whether I should return it or not.

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 5 out of 5 by from Twister Jar I bought the Twister Jar about a month ago and have been using it fairly regularly. Very impressed with the high quality (better than my original jar) and the extra pieces (spatula, mini gripper lid) but mostly love the size of the jar itself, which is the whole reason I bought it. I'm a smoothie guy so the ease of cleanup and 20 oz capacity fits my needs perfectly. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good purchase I'm very happy with the Twister jar. I've used mainly for making my pre-workout smoothies and grinding flax seeds which it does flawlessly. I also plan to make my own almond butter as soon as I run out of the store bought jars of almond butter I have. It's also quieter than the Wildside jar because the entire configuration is on a smaller scale. I love the products this company makes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to Blendtec I ordered on black Friday's sale so I could justify the purchase. I wanted it so I could make nut butter and soft serve ice cream. It works great! No regret on this purchase (sale helped). Also used it to whip up fresh bread crumbs as an experiment for a holiday meal.....way better than having to get out my food processor. Thumbs up fa sha but kinda big price to swallow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job with thick and dry foods The Twister jar works great when I am working with smaller quantities of food or thick/dry ingredients (like a Truffle recipe or seasoned breadcrumbs).

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.

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!

Asked by: nealsu
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).

What is the MINIMUM amount of liquid that will blend in the WildSide, twister and mini twister jars?   When making mayo, the blender must be able to blend 1/4 C and up to 1.5 cups.  

Asked by: BvanSteen
The liquid needs to cover the blade. Twister jar: 4 oz, FourSide jar: 8 oz, WildSide+ jar: 12 oz. We don't recommend using the Mini Twister jar for making mayo, as it does not have a tight fitting lid.

Which of your jars is best for making mayonnaise? My mayonnaise recipe makes about 1.5 cups total and I'm concerned the Wildside+ that came with my new blender may be too big

Asked by: MissJelic
It's made best in our Twister jar or FourSide jar but you should still be able to make it in the WildSide+ jar. If your recipe isn't working, try increasing the ingredients by 1.5 or 2 times.

Can I beat 3-4 Eggs in the twister jar? Also I read complains on Amazon about liquid flying off the lid? what cause this and how to avoid it? I have this concern before ordering the twister jar. Thank you

Asked by: Anna 48
Three to four eggs should be fine in the Twister. You will want to use the vented gripper lid for wet blending in the Twister jar and the twister lid for much thicker substances like nut butters. No liquids will leak when using the proper jar for the type of blend.

Is there some way to make the plastic cap on the mini/twister gripper lid secure more tightly, or are there meant to be small gaps between the rubber of the lid and plastic of the cap?

Asked by: JonM
The small gaps that you see between the rubber lid and the plastic cap, is intentional. It's for emulsion; that way if you're making mayonnaise or dressings, you can pour the oil in from the top of the lid while it continues blending.

Can you grind coffee beans in the twister jar?

Asked by: Nanjhall
Yes you can. Place 1 cup of coffee beans in the Twister jar. Secure the Gripper lid, and run on Speed 5 for 20–30 seconds or until desired texture is reached. Note: Over time, grinding coffee beans in your jar may cause it to look clouded or stained and to smell like coffee. This is cosmetic damage, and is not covered under the warranty.
