Feature #8: Easy to Stack, Easy to StoreBlendtec jars are designed to be stackable, making storage a snap. We initially offered our stackable jars to the commercial market, where counter space is tremendously valuable. But we recognized that home users also value their counter space, so we introduced our space-saving jars in our consumer packages. We also discovered that stacked jars can get wedged together so tightly that they are hard to separate. So we added "winglets" to the outside corners of our jars, which prevents wedging and ensures you can separate your jars easily, every time. Blendtec's FourSide and WildSide* jars are stackable, saving space and making storage a snap.
Feature #9: The Lid That Doesn't Get in the WayA lid needs to do much more than just keep the blend inside the jar, particularly when it comes to blending hot soups, when heated air creates pressure against the sealed lid. So we created a removable vent to allow the steam to escape while blending. And then we thought, "If the vent lets steam come out, why can't the vent also let ingredients to come in?" So we added openings that do just that. Now you can add ingredients on the fly without even removing the lid. It’s the ultimate convenience! Blendtec jars have vented gripper lids, allowing hot air to escape and making it easy to add ingredients midblend.[/caption] Have you noticed any "little things" that make your Blendtec machine even better?
