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 4.6296 out of 5 by 27.
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 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 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 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 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!

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?

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.

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.

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.
