The Purpose of the Cycle Counter

the cycle counter

When Blendtec first went into the blender business, we only made commercial blenders. At that time, the warranty for our commercial machines was for either the number of years after purchase or the total number of blend cycles, whichever came first—similar to a car warranty that covers either so many years or so many miles, whichever comes first.

(On a related note, Blendtec recently became the only manufacturer to offer a 3-year warranty on its top commercial blenders, regardless of blend cycle count. Read about it here.)

Cycle Counter Display on Blendtec Blender

When we responded to the demand for a consumer version of our groundbreaking machine, we adapted the blender accordingly. One thing we altered was the control pad, making it more intuitive and user-friendly. The design retained the cycle count display, which ended up being a very popular feature for our home users. For many, it became a matter of pride as their blenders achieved hundreds and thousands of blend cycles, validating their decision to purchase the world's best-built blender. Just remember: The warranties on our home machines do not have a cycle restriction on them, so blend to your heart's content! How many blend cycles has your Blendtec blender achieved?

    Welcome to the family! We hope you enjoy your blending experience, and are available to help whenever you need it. There is no way for you to reset the cycle count on the machine.

    I got 1,000 cycles in 2 months. So satisfied, got to show off at a birthday party. Everyone loved it!
    I really hope that the cycles will not count toward my warranty.

    Sometimes I just press the smoothie button with no jar on.
    My family says it sounds annoying, but I love the powerful sound from the motor. That’s why my cycles are so high.

    Seems my kid just sat pushing the bottom row buttons and then immediately stopping the blender and pushing another bottom row button, all while we weren’t here I should add, and now she’s added several hundred “cycles” in a very short time..

    I have bought yesterday a 2008 Blendtec Q Serie that had only 1809 cycles.
    In 6 years, the coffeshop owner made only 1809 cycles (average 301 cycles/year / 25 cycles per month / 0,83 cycles per day).
    It’ss in very good condition for a fraction of its price.
    I am proud to own the BESt of the BESt commercial blender and planning to use it everyday from now.
    I have done 4 cycles for the fisrt day of use.
    Great piece of machinery
