The Twister™ jar is designed to blend your thickest recipes, such as nut butters, hummus, baby food, dips, thick shakes, dressings and more! Best of all, the Twister jar is compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders.

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.

Features include all of these unique Blendtec advantages:

  • Patented Twister lid
  • Mini Gripper™ lid for containing thinner blends
  • Patented single-prong tuned wingtip blade
  • Easy-to-read jar markings up to 16 fl oz
  • Durable BPA-free material that stands up to heavy use
  • Compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders, not compatible with Blendtec mixers.
  • 3-Year Warranty

  • Dimensions: 4.75" wide x 7" deep (with spout and handle) x 7.5" tall (9.75" with lid)
  • Actual weight: 1.5 lbs (0.68 kg)
  • Shipping weight: 2 lbs (1.36 kg)
  • 3-Year Warranty

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 Way too expensive! I thought the Twister Jar was way too expensive for what it is. It does work well. Don't over do it on the ice when making a drink.

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 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! It works perfect and it scared me at first when it went into its phases as it mixed my smoothie. Definitely use the buttons of choices. They mix perfectly, and if you like them smoother mix twice.

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.

I have Blendtec Totalblender and the Twister jar DOES NOT fit the base of my Blendtec. Am I missing an adapter or are you wrong about  the Twister fitting all the Blendtec bases? Please help I paid $100 for something I can't use!!!

Asked by: Windy
It should definitely fit your Total blender. It does have a different base than our other jars - there are grooves in the jar that should be placed over the corners of the base. Please call our customer service team at 1-800-748-5400 and they'll help you out.

Does the twister jar grate carrots, coconut

Asked by: Hema
When grating carrots, the FourSide or WildSide jar would be best. The Twister jar should dry coconut, but you should only blend 1/2-3/4 cup at a time. Use the "Pulse" button to get the desired texture.

I just got a twister jar and I attempted to use. I turned it on and the hole jar and blender base began jumping around like crazy I had to hold it down and still could barely keep it under control. What could have happened? A problem with the jar or base?

I'm sorry to hear this happened. It's hard to say whether it's the jar or base without troubleshooting it over the phone. Please call 800.748.5400, and be sure you are near your base and jar so that a representative can troubleshoot the issue over the phone.

Would this be the best jar to make confectioner powder consistency from grain kernels?

Asked by: rookedrolsta
Any of the jars will make flour from grain. If it is not fine enough just blend again. However, this may scratch the jar which is not covered under warranty as it is only cosmetic. The Twister jar will only hold a small amount of grain.

I don't have a twister jar but tried to make peanut butter using my Classic 575 with Fourside Jar - it failed. I just bought it instead another powerful blender. Is there a way to do this, and if so, how? Thank you

Asked by: sandangel
Our Twister jar is the best jar for making nut butters, but you can do it in the FourSide jar, but it will take longer and a little more work. You will need about 1 cup of nuts, maybe a little more, and blend on a medium speed. You will need to stop blending every 10 seconds or so to scrape the sides to push everything back into the center of the jar.

I need to blend sugar to make into powered sugar what container would work best for that? And how do I go buying a replacement jar? 

Asked by: Patty
The FourSide and WildSide jars will both work well, it just depends on much sugar you are blending. The WildSide jar is larger and will blend more in one blend, but the FourSide jar is probably the best to use. If your jar is still under warranty, call 800.748.5400 for assistance.
