Rated 4 out of 5 by RebD from Luv my Blender, disappointed in the leaking gasket Ive not quite has this a year and the black gasket to my wildside jar started shredding - we'd see little black shreds on the base when we removed the jar- now the gasket leaks any liquid we put in. Im really disappointed and hope I can have the jar replaced since we dont use it daily but its a great product and the jars are awfully expensive if the gasket is going to shred and wiggle the blade and leak. I thought my kids did it so blamed them, but in the Q&A section here, I see its not an isolated situation. I hope we can get this resolved so I can go back to loving my blender!

Rated 5 out of 5 by scout from Blendtec honors their warranty I abuse my blender daily with frozen fruits, and the jar failed after having it for about 7 months. I got a new one in 3 days w/ no hassle after emailing customer service about it. Realistically, no blender jar's blade assembly is going to last years with daily use (I bought the blender expecting to need warranty replacements for the jar, since there's no chance it's going to last 7 years with daily use), so as long as blendtec keeps sending me new jars when they wear out for the duration of the warranty, I'm satisfied. The jar sounds different when it's starting to wear out, so when this happens get in touch w/ customer service so you can get a new one shipped out to you before the old one completely breaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rugger from Outstanding! I got the Wildside as a replacement for the original jar that I flat wore out. This jar is terrific -- it is quieter than the standard jar when I make my smoothies which are very heavy on the ice. It also blends the contents quicker than the original jar and has a lower profile. Also easier to clean than the original jar because the base is wider and I can get a cleaning brush down there very easily. Awesome jar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim D from Best Customer Service Ever I have 6 Blentecs and had no idea the warranty they carry. I just knew that it wast the best blender on the market. The jar blade in one of my blenders broke and I ordered another one. Thought it was a bit pricey, but when you buy the best you normally pay more. A couple of days later I get a call from someone at Blentec that said I was getting the blender for free (under warranty). Who does that???? After you have already paid, who gives you your money back??? Blendtec does! Not only the best blender on the planet, but the best customer service as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sandy21 from A Great Replacement I bought the wildside jar as a replacement for my regular jar when the latter's blender rotor blade seal shot black stuff all over the motor housing. I had bought a blendtec for my girlfriend with a wildside jar so I'm familiar with the advantages of this jar and I really like mine. I use it mostly to make morning smoothies where I can put nuts, veggies, fruit and all sorts of ingredients to aid my health. It handles everything quite well and I particularly like that it can start on a slow speed for other types of blending. After I bought the wildside jar I was contacted by a company representative who informed me that I had an active warranty on the blender and so I opted to accept a twister jar instead of a refund on the replacement jar. I'm looking forward to making peanut butter and hummus with the twister jar. I do, however, have a concern about the seals wearing out on the jars. The blendtec I got for my girlfriend is a year and a half old and I find black material oozing out of the bottom of the jar around the rotor/blade (see photo). As I think back on my original jar it showed those same signs. Yet there was never any leakage from the jar nor was there contamination of the ingredients of the jar and this holds true for the wildside jar that my girlfriend has. But when the seal blew on mine I didn't want to take a chance on leakage or contamination and so I ordered a new one. I'm posting this as a mixed review but I do like my blender!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel R from Got me a NEW Jar !!! I bought my Blendtec few years ago and love it. This year we started notice a noise when making our smoothies. I thought it was the blender so I call the company and explain the problem. I was ready to pay if need it but the lady who answered the phone give a troubleshoting ON THE PHONE (!!!) and said - "The problem is the jar not the blender, we can send you on a free one or for $20 we can send you the pro-something" I was so glad that I didn't care to pay right there for this new jar so I ordered it. We just got it, so happy. Mmm ... so this is NOT a review on the jar? Actually no, is a review on the company, 5 STARS ALL THE WAY, thanks a lot Blendtec for a amazing product and costumer service !!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SnoothieLover1 from Need To Be Able To Replace Parts & Old Lids Better Why can't these be made to where the bearings and blades can be replaced? We like the system, but buying new jars all the time is too spendy. If this doesn't change, we will find a better system soon. Also, the lids have changed & the old lids were much better (easier to remove & clean up better). This blender jar us BY FAR better than the one you offer with a small base, as that smaller based one does not seem to have the right dimensions to allow for proper rotation to blend well at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nomad from Must Have For A Minimalist Kitchen This blender is extremely versatile. I use it for many tasks from whipping up smoothies and hummus to making bread dough. One base and two jars (Wildside and Twister) take up little space but deliver big on multi-function ability. If it could cook rice, it would be the only counter top appliance I would need. The really important thing is it works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ktec1 from 5 stars for base, 0 stars for jar I've had my old K-tec Champ since 1996. It runs beautifully and makes short work of almonds, spinach, berries and anything else I put in my smoothies. However, my 4th jar just bit the dust. The first jar lasted for several years, but I didn't use it as much then. The last three have lasted for about 2-3 years each. This one is just over 3 years old. I don't want to spend the money for a VIta-mix when i have a base that works so well, but this jar issue is ridiculous. I'm going to just start using the warranty at 2 years and 11 months even if the jar isn't show problems yet. BLENDTEC - YOU HAVE TO FIX THE BEARING ISSUE ON THE JARS!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lockdown from Excellent Blender, Poor Bottom Gasket I love this blender, but am put off by the poor life of the container given that after about 300 cycles the blade does not spin freely. I clean and maintain it regularly, so I feel cheated. I clean it even better than the manual suggests so this shouldn't be happening. I am the only user, so there is no way somebody could be tampering with it or abusing it without my knowledge. It would be great if this blender had a kit to change the gasket at the bottom. THIS WOULD SET THIS PROBLEM TO REST AND LOCK IT IN AS A '10'. I don't think the competition does this. Nudge! Nudge!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Phil180 from Works great, but not for long I've been using these for over 10 years and blend about 4 times a week on average. The contents range from yogurt and fruit smoothies to heavier items like meat and vegetables. We only fill the jars to about 24 - 30 ounces and get absolutely perfect results every time with only a single blending cycle (50 seconds). However, they only last about 1-1/2 years before the seal fails and the blade doesn't turn easily. Always slightly past the 1 year warranty, of course! But as long as the blender keeps working I guess we'll keep buying the jars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarrieCBB from Love the Four Side Jar! I bought my Blendtec with the Wildside Jar on sale at Costco last year and, while I have loved the operation of the blender, sturdiness and ease of cleaning, the bigger jar wasn't designated for some of the recipes and smaller amounts I wanted to use. Since getting the Four Side jar, I find I use it all the time with all the recipes I want!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brandy1 from Liked old lid better I had to get a replacement blender jar as the old one started to leak after 600 uses. When i got the new jar, i noticed the lid is not completely closed and it comes apart in two pieces. This is harder to clean this way. The jar handle also is not solid its hollow so stuff can get stuck on inside of it. Im noticing the blades just are not fully blending frozen bananas in smoothies n i have to pulse it a few times after the cycle is done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidKA from great jar, less than great lid I just bought a new jar -- the old one was leaking after 6-7 years (thanks for the great product!). It's very lucky that my old lid is as good as new (thanks for the great product!), because it's so easy to scrape the smoothie goodness off it with a scraper, unlike from the newly-designed lid. The latter has narrow and curved rut, which requires a small, narrow object to do the job. I don't have such an object; a tea spoon doesn't do a good enough job. I tried the new lid a couple times but eventually shelved it in frustration. I wonder if other folks give similar feedback and if BT would consider going back to the old design in future iterations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve60 from Great upgrade of original container I've used Blendtec blenders for the past 10 years or so, and while I always liked the fourside jar, I was unhappy with both the container material and the bearings of the blade. This new container fixes both problems. The material is a clear and doesn't seem as vulnerable to etching as the original containers. The blade assembly and bearings are amazing -- quiet, sturdy, and apparently so well designed the jar comes with a 3-year warranty, or longer if you're buying it as part of a blender purchase. This is the last thing that might have kept me from recommending the Blendtec blender to everyone. I'm completely satisfied with the way it works and looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katty kat from JAR WAS WORTH ORDERING I bought this second jar replacement. The first replacement I had purchased was a for gasket issue. It had just worn out, which they do. At that time I could see little gray bits when grinding sugar to powdered sugar and called Blendtec. So it was time to replace. This current replacement jar was due to making soup with super 'hot off the stove' vegetables and broth. Liquid started to leak and thankfully didn't damage the base. Although I did melt the gasket. Sooo... this time I know to be more careful and save my receipt for the longer 3 year warranty. Yes, it is worth it as I love the features of the base I already have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dshanmug from LOVE this jar! I have used this jar multiple times every day since I took it out of the box! I've made the Berry Soft Serve recipe from the recipe booklet every day. I've make Raw Ranch Dressing, Macadamia Cream, Raw Russian Salad Dressing, just to name a few. Our whole family is just in love with this new jar. The spatula is an engineering triumph and it actually gets out every last bit of our expensive organic nut recipes with ease. We are impressed with the removable lid centers and recipe booklet too. All the pieces of this package are well thought out and well worth the price. Bravo, Blendtec, you've put together something worthy of your amazing blender. No cheaping-out on anything. We are customers since 2006.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie from Must-have for hummus, nut butters, and more... Wasn't sure how handy this would be, but I'm a big fan of hummus and spreads, so I thought I'd try it. What I didn't realize was that its more petite size fits perfectly under counter when atop my blender, and it's just the right size for a morning smoothie for one. I put in all my fresh greens and fruits with a little ice or water, and get 16 oz of heaven without using the bigger Wildside or Standard jars. LOVE IT! Clean up is simple too. Great product for the money, and dramatically different than any other offering from Blendtec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Peacemama from Love this Blender! Lets get the negatives out of the way... I haven't been successful in making ice cream, even when I follow the recipes provided but its not a big deal to me because it works great for all the things I actually bought it for. I had a hard time with thick things in the regular Blendtec blenders, but the twister jar can whip through all those troubles with ease. I have made super thick hummus, awesome guacamole, almond butter, sesame tahini, and baby food. Its my go to blender for the things I make and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paula from I love the preprogrammed settings! I received my Blendtec a week ago. I heard wonderful things about it from other reviewers online. It's BETTER than I expected, and easier to make all of the things that I bought it for than I thought it would be because of the preprogrammed settings. For example, I can make a green smoothie in 40 seconds by putting a little water in, filling it with leafy greens just the way I bought them, and tossing in a whole apple, or handful of berries and pushing ONE BUTTON, ONE TIME! It takes 8 seconds of preparation and 32 seconds of blending (where I do nothing but watch it adjust it's own speeds, and get a glass out of the cupboard). It takes me 20 seconds to clean up by rinsing the jar and lid with water and setting them upside down to air dry. It's so cool!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by AmbassadorT from Functions great but... I appreciate the size and multifaceted functionality of the twister jar. I am however, disappointed with the fact that it stained the second time I used it. For the jar to stain indicates a level of porosity that is of concern. No matter what I have tried the stain does not come out (even after 20 additional uses with food item not containing any yellow). All foods have also been organic so no chemicals or artificial ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jack from Works Perfectly! It isn't often you follow the instructions and get results like you saw in the video. But with this I followed the instructions exactly, simply pressing a few buttons and twisting the lid as I blended, and the nut butter was perfect. The other day I had apples but no peanut butter. But I found a jar of cashews and 2 minutes later I was eating apples with cashew butter.

So far I'm thrilled with the versatility of this and clean up is a snap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mjenf from Simple to use My wife and I bought a Kitchen Mill a few years ago and we grind our own berries quite frequently. Over the past few years we only used 2 filters. We probably should have changed them out sooner than that, but they still worked for the most part. We ordered new filters and the mill is running better now. They are great filters, although, I would not recommend rinsing them. Rather, just dust off the flour and put it in a dry spot. We were rinsing them after use, and that made them brittle and the filter shrunk a little. Overall, great filters, highly recommend them.

Sometimes I play with it on the counter top when the kids are at school and I am alone in the kitchen. I walk it around and talk to it. It is a wonderful, squishy letter F. I keep it handy in the flatware drawer. I don't know what it is for but I have fun with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momof6 from Improved Quality! I have had my grinder for 20+ years. For a time the F filters did not hold up for more than 2 grindings. They just kind of compressed from the heat. These F filters are a bit big for my grinder, but I just insert them until they stop. They have held up beautifully. I love this grinder and hope to continue making healthy flour for my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Foxysicecream from Love my Blendtec I just got me refurbished Blendtec and love it. I own an ice cream shop and have had 2 commercial blenders to make smoothies. I used the Hamilton Beach Commercial and the Vitamix. Blendtec blows them away. We can put in our mix, ice and walk away. When we come back it is perfect. Both Hamilton Beach and Vitamix involved mixing to get the mixture to move. The flat bottom on the Blendtec makes it perfect for getting every bit of smoothie out of the bottom. The other blenders were too narrow to use a spatula to get the mixture out. Great design and performance. I hope it lasts for years. Oh, the refurbished looks like new. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by avaughn from The best blender EVER! I received this blender as a gift, it is by far the BEST gift I've received (for the kitchen). I have used it almost every day since it landed on my doorstep. I make green smoothies, milkshakes, white russians (hehe) and so much more. I feel like I haven't even touched on what this machine can do. My husband is extremely impressed by the power and wants to show everyone who walks through our door. If you are on the fence about purchasing a refurb blender, I understand, but with the garauntee and warranty it's a win win situation. I would also reccomend the Twister Jar if wanting to make nut butter, salad dressings, etc. Thank you Blendtec!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ontherun57 from So far so good! I purchased a re-furbished model several months ago. Great service. Love my Blendtec! Easy to use, extremely easy to clean. I have used a very sturdy Oster blender for nearly 30 years. The Blendtec allows me to make my green smoothies on the run in the morning with a very quick clean-up. I freeze my ingredients in jars, add them to the blender, blend and pour the smoothies back into the jars, put the lids on and have a days worth for "snacking" on. I would purchase this again and recommend it to others. It is a little noisy when grinding frozen chunks. I put my hand on the lid if it gets a little jumpy. I expect it and the noise is short lived.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eltoronegro101 from Very pleased. I've had my blender a couple of months and have really loved it. I mainly use it for smoothies but have made green shakes and have blended my saved egg shells. Worked great. My kids have learned to use it too. I live when they make a fruit drink in it. I enjoy the preset functions. Makes it easy. I only wish it was a bit quieter, but a small price to pay for being able to blend anything. I was also comforted by the warrantee. Makes me feel good know they stand behind their product, even the referbs. There was a learning curve with the cavitation that can occur. I like my fruit smoothies thick. (I freeze watermelon cubes and thicken with that instead of ice.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by CHARLIEofBIGCANOE from Great product and service Purchased a refurbished unit online in early July. Somehow the order was lost, but a great customer service rep handled the issue and expedited the shipment. The rep was very professional, it makes me feel that we have made a good choice in buying Blendtec. We have friends that purchased both a Vitamix and this Blendtec unit, and after 10 days of using both, they sent the Vitamix back. Blendtec was far better for their smoothy and cooking needs. I have only used my Blendtec a few times, but I am very impressed with the power and the results. With a seven year warranty and great customer service, I can't imagine why you would buy anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stacey from Great blender for blending foods for my tube feed I have had my blendtec since Feb. 2014 and have done 1564 blends. It works as good now as it did the day it was received. My daughter is tube fed, had chronic diarrhea (dumping syndrome) for 10 years being on formula. I started blending her food with the Blendtec in Feb. 2014 and not one episode since I started blending real food. She also gets IVIG infusions (iv antibodies every 3 weeks for 11 years). Her antibody levels have never been higher. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. They have excellent customer service as well. You can actually speak to a person without being on hold for an extended period of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoothie from Push of a button I have to say; I love my blendtec. I had borrowed a Vitamix from friends on several occasions to make smoothies (I wanted to blend rather than juice because I wanted to keep all of the veggie/fruit goodness and not waste it). The Vitamix worked well but, I had to put a lot more work into blending. My blendtec has everything I need programmed into it! I make a large batch every few days and keep the rest in the fridge! When I get home I chop and freeze what I can beets, celery, watermelon ect and then in the am I pop in whatever I want in my smoothie press the button and it goes through the cycle and bam I'm done! For what I wanted I am so glad I went with the blendtec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandya from Packs a punch and does it quickly I've had the Blendtec for about three weeks, and bought it as an upgrade to my Nutribullet. I love it, and can't say enough good things. I drink roughly two smoothies a day or more, mostly vegetable-based, and the Blendtec makes them so smooth and easy to consume, I can't believe the smoothie didn't come from a juicer. I am actually looking for reasons to blend stuff. I realize I sound like an infomercial. A caveat I'll add-- if you plan to drink the juice right away, it helps to add ice; the speed of the blender warms the juice, which isn't ideal for taste. I haven't tried making soups, etc, yet, but I assume it'll work quite well to get the soup to the ideal temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jackie44 from Fantastic Product! Everything about this product is so superbly designed and constructed. Jar: The perfect size for single-serve blends, but with a little extra capacity if and when you need it. The jar’s smaller size makes it very easy to remove contents, to handle, and to clean. Lid: The lid, vent hole, and vent cap are each proportionately smaller; again making them extraordinarily easy to handle and to clean. The lid has flanges which latch onto a plastic lip which runs around the top outside rim of the jar. This design allows the the lid to be securely affixed to the jar, but it also facilitates the easy removal of the lid in that you can use the flanges as little handles to pull the lid off of the top of the jar. The lid also appears to be thicker and more rigid than the full-size lids. A feature I like. I do not see any negatives or cons in this product. I use this Mini Wildside Jar almost exclusively now, and I absolutely love it. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarinW19 from Does not blend as well as the Wild Side jar I was happy to finnaly get my Blendtec Go jar, but I was a little disappointed in the blending abilities. I make a Rocket Fuel latte with cacao nibs and shelled hemp seeds in the Wild Side jar on the smoothie setting and everything is smooth. In the Blendtec Go jar I have about 2 tsps of chunks left at the bottom. I have tried running the juice setting twice and I still have little chunks left over. I have also paused partway through and scraped down the sides. Let me know if I am doing something wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by klagain from Perfect for Breakfast Smoothies I absolutely love this jar!!! It is perfect for the smoothies I've been making lately which include 1 cup liquid, crushed ice and protein powder. I love using the disposable cups with the smoothie but make sure the ice is crushed or your cup might crack. I'm not giving it a 5 simply because I feel the jar is over priced. As much as I love it, I wasn't willing to pay full price. I only purchased it because at the time, it was 20% off. Other than the price, I don't feel like you would go wrong making this purchase if you are an on the go kind of smoothie maker like me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TerryM from Go Cup = Great! Solo Insert = Not so great The Go Cup itself is great... I use the GoCup every morning with the plastic lid. I discovered that inserting a Solo-Cup insert does NOT work very well at all for a couple of reasons. 1) The plastic cup will crack from hard materials such ice during blending and splashed all over the Go Cup a, 2) In order to get a tight enough seal on the you have to tighten anyway n the lid sooooo tight that it makes it virtually impossible to to get the lid off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Austin from Awesome idea, not the best quality I bought this about a month or so ago and have used it probably 20 times. I’ve used a plastic cup recommended on a product card that came in the packaging and the seal comes undone or the cup breaks probably 1/3 of the time. The idea is awesome, but with it making a bigger mess than my wild side jar (when using a disposable cup and following all the directions to a T) I don’t think it’s worth it. If the quality of the seal is increased greatly, it would be a life-changing product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Earlybird from nicely made but less convenient This Blendtec GO bottle is well made like all Blendtec products. I do appreciate that! However, for me it is not as convenient as the pitcher. If you need to add anything to the bottle while it is blending you have to take it off the blender and unscrew the jar instead of just opening a lid. Blending in individual cups is not all that convenient either.It can be a little messy. It would be just as easy to blend and then pour into cups. Looking back, for the money I spent, I wish I had gotten the Mini Wildside Jar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRSC from Love it! I bought this about a month ago, and I love it. It works so much better than the old gasket, and my kitchen work space is cleaner because there is less flour being blown through cracks on my mill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RickTurner from Designer 725 with Wildside+ Jar is Dream Machine I purchased the Designer 725 with the Wildside+ Jar about month ago and it has exceeded all my expectations in performance, quality and design features. I've used it to make smoothies, salsa, soup bases and sauces with excellent results. The cleaning and scub cycle is awesome compared to how I had to manually wash my retired Cusinart Blender. It is truly a professional blender with power, outstanding design features and quality. The Wideside+ Jar works like a champ in blending, pouring and with the cleaning/scrub feature on the blender touch panel. The touch panel and features are awesome too. It's a very well designed blender along with the Wildside+ Jar and I would highly recommend to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JDskez from Simply Put, FANTASTIC! Very powerful, easy to clean blender that can do it all from hot soups to amazing smoothies that are easy and enjoyable to drink. This blenders single dull blade is safe to touch when not in use and the WildSide cyclone action really does do a wonderful job of mixing your ingredients together without the need for a plunger like accessory. I really enjoy the beauty of this machine from the design to the gorgeous digital display. If you're in the market for a commercial grade blender and you're trying to decide between the blendtec and the Vitamix, do yourself a favor and purchase a blendtec that offers you more features for the same price, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dick from Top-Quality Engineering and Design Integrity The simplicity and robustness of the engineering of the 725 is truly singular and remarkable, greatly exceeding our expectations. This American-made machine is positively "goof proof"... It is powerful, easy to clean, and forth right in its operation. Blendtec can expect future orders from us for its other products; our friends will become Blendtec consumers for certain. We did experience an unusual shipping delay, mainly owing to the demand for this model, causing us a bit of frustration; this was elegantly addressed by the three top-notch service representatives, for which a letter of gratitude to their leadership shall be forthcoming. Many Thanks... Dick B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by S5runner from Best blender My wife and I use this blender everyday. Some days it's more than once, and for completely different recipes. We've had it for over a year now and we are still loving it. If I had to choose one thing in my kitchen that I would have to keep, and get rid of everything else it would be the blendtec without hesitation. I love how I can choose between functions like juicing, soup, smoothie or even ice cream, you can't screw up! Easy to clean and the other jars are extremely handy. The power is unreal. Also, we love the rewards that come with it, sorry no spoilers ;) I believe it's worth the money, this was not a purchase it was an investment.

The Blendtec 725 has superior features such as the smooth surfaced touch pad interface and a digital readout that holds absolutely hysterical "conversations" with you... not to mention the brilliantly designed dull edged blending blades and the Wildside jar that doesn't require the hassle of a pusher/plunger (like the Vitamix). I simply can't imagine anyone who would not be completely satisfied with this amazing, well-built American-made machine. Customer service has been second to none and oh, btw, every recipe and every blend has not only been flawless but fun as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by incredibleole from Great results but some annoying flaws. This blender is easy to use and delivers really awesome blending results. Smoothies and soups of all kinds turn out great with the Wildside+ Jar and nut butter, curry pastes and small portions are easy to make with the Twister Jar. The machine is very loud, but that didn't came as a surprise. Unfortunately, there are some caveats: One minor thing: The german translation is quite bad, so I decided to let it speak english. One annoying thing: It does not have a physical power switch. You have to plug the cord off the wall, if you don't want to let it use standby-energy. Another annoying thing: Blendtec advertises this device as a good looking appliance, hence the name "Designer". It really is. But not for a very long time. After around 50 blends, the upper layer of the satinated plastic of the jar mount gets scrubbed off and gets welded into the jar's base (see photos). Blendtec obviously chose the wrong kind of plastic or they should have taken rubber feet, that can be replaced when wearing off. Also I had to "read error" messages, that interrupted my blending, but only two or three times so far. I highly sophisticated device like this should habe the ability to get user manageable firmware-update, so why is there no USB-port on the back of the machine? If the firmware has bugs, I have to send it in, that's neither a good solution for me, nor Blendtec. As you may have seen from my review, I'm using a european 230V version. So, if Blendtec eliminates these issues, the Designer 725 would be absolutely perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grammarian from I've had the original since 1999 I'm sorry to read the negative reviews. I have the original Kitchen Mill and just now replaced the gasket with the stick-on one from Blendtec. The gasket cost 10 bucks with shipping! It does not work like the original. I have to put masking tape all around the mill to keep the flour from blowing out. I can't use it in my kitchen any more. Mine is super loud, so loud it hurts. I use industrial ear plugs. Also, these mills get your flour very hot-over 100 degrees. Freeze the grain first or lose nutrition. From these reviews I will not be replacing my mill with its Blend Tec version. I'll probably go with a KoMo because of the 12 year warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blendtech Fan from 21 years and going STRONG! I got my mill 21 years ago, and it is still going strong. I got it for free when I got my Kitchen Champ mixer/blender. It has been used to grind bushels of wheat, corn, barley and other grains over the years. While it isn't quiet, it is faster and better than the electric stone grinder that I used to use. I love that I can adjust how fine the grind is. If I have any complaint, it is not easy to get it clean. I usuallly use a blowdryer to get all of the dust out. But, after 21 years, that isn't much of a comlaint! I don't have any other appliances that have lasted that long (I dropped the Kitchen Champ and killed the computer after 11 years).

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1derwoman from Great For a While We purchased our Kitchen Mill 6 years ago and have used it regularly. I make bread several times a month. More than once we have ground a 20 lb bag of wheat in one session. It's been a beautiful tool in our kitchen and it does a wonderful milling job. It grinds quickly and the grain is very fine. I've given the mill as a gift twice and recommended it to everyone. Two years ago I noticed the seal around the pan was giving out and the room was taking a flour bath when in use, so we replaced the seal. At replacement I noticed a tiny crack in each of the side latches. The new seal and cracked latches meant that we had to hold the unit together to prevent flour from coating the house. The cracks have grown over time with use. One crack now runs right up to the filter section and the unit is useless. It's a fundamental design flaw of poured plastic. I'm so disappointed and am now shopping for a new mill. If you plan occasional use, I highly recommend the Kitchen Mill. If you need a work horse, move on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suzie from My blendtec kitchen mill exploded I have had my current blendtec kitchen mill for just over three years. This was my third blendtec kitchen mill. I do not register my mills for warranty as I use them to grind small dry wood samples for analysis. My previous mills have jammed and the motors burned up. Something happened to my current mill while in use this morning and it literally lifted up off the cannister and landed upside down. I am fortunate to use the unit on a table considerably lower than counter height so the motor housing did not hit me in the head. I'm sure this was just a crazy fluke and will be promptly ordering a new unit, my fourth in 8 years. This unit grinds better and costs less than anything available in my industry. Like others have said about flour dust (wood dust for me), it blows out from between the motor and canister. I did not have this problem with my earlier mills but have with my last two. Either the gasket or the latches have changed as my last two units haven't locked down like the previous units. I recommend using it outdoors or indoor with an exhaust fan running. I also recommend wearing safety glasses, a dust mask and hearing protection as the unit is as loud as a jet engine and particles have a tendency to fly out when the hopper is almost empty. I would like to see the gasket/latch issue addressed and it would be great if there was an easy way to be able to unjam the milling chamber and clean in there. As you can see in the picture, my mills get heavy use. Like others, I use compressed air to blow out as much residue as possible.

It's been great to be able to mill my own wheat and bake my own super-delicious bread. It makes flour and stores upside down (perfectly compact for my teeny apartment!) And I think people who expect there not to be a slight flour mess with any wheat grinder would be crazy. So far it's done the job well. I have no complaints, and it's no louder than an air popper. Yay for wheat grinders!

Did not have powder flying all over the place-the way the grinder top seals to the container helps , and it was more quiet than other grinders. It packs up so small to stick on a shelf neatly. My only wish was that it would come with a little brush to brush out the flour in the grinder. But not a big deal-can just get a brush somewhere. Very happy with the grinder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tory from Exceeded My Expectations! I am more than impressed with this blender, and even it if dies the day the warranty expires at 8 years, it will well have been worth the investment. I had always heard about Vitamix blenders as being the best. With this blender, I was wary about having electronic controls, and overall I was unsure about Blendtec blenders. But when I had a sizable store credit at Bed Bath and Beyond, Vitamix blenders were not an option for my 20% coupon so I chose Blendtec. I am very hard on my kitchen tools, and this blender has stood up to my abuse. I used it almost daily and I can't imagine not having it. Everything blends so smoothly and it really looks beautiful on my counter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by howardh from Highly aggressive awesome blender! We've been using this blender for about a month, and its been the best blender we've had. Its shear power is incredible. It has the ability to heat up liquids, just from friction at high speed. We've made many superfood smoothies & hot soups with it, and we were blown away with how it was capable of heating the soup with it! We had purchased a vitamix first, and returned it, because it came with a plunger, this indicated to us that the design of the jar must be lacking something. We love the digital controls and fact that the control panel is easy to clean. Electronic controls always trumps switches in my opinion, because there are no contacts to go bad. The Blendtec is worth every penny!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CiesAK from Everything we wanted in a blender...and much more! Switching from a cheap blender to a premium one is a big step (and investment). But the ease of use and variety of uses make the jump entirely worth it. From ice cream to hot soup – from nut butters to smoothies, our Blendtec takes the place of several other appliances. The online recipe book gives endless options, but the real value is that it's easy to use and simple to clean... meaning this is the type of purchase you'll enjoy using and *keep* using regularly. It devours fresh (or frozen) fruits and veggies, so there's zero headache to eat healthy. Can't recommend this enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debc from Love it! I got mine just a month ago & have used it to make whole juices & smoothies. While it's a lil noisier than expected, I LOVE the power it has. Only one problem; my husband bought whole bean coffee today & forgot to have it ground, but he looked up blendtec & said, "hey, we can do it in the blender!" So we did. The ground coffee came out great, but unfortunately, even after just 5 seconds, it scarred the jar, so now it's cloudy at the bottom. I guess that's to be expected because it's plastic, but I wish there had been a warning. I'm sure it won't affect the performance, I just liked it to look clean, since it sits out on the counter. Still love the blender, though!

I have made many things with it from smoothies to dips and shakes it performs flawlessly and gives restaurant quality each time. I must also add that it has also outlived 3 blenders I had prior to this one. Once you get over the initial sticker shock and use it, you will see it is totally worth what you pay for it. If you're looking for something for the long haul and will perform better then anything out there look no further then Blendtec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crashpad from Amazon, easy to use, love it! My mom bought this about nine months ago and hasn't really used it ever because she says you have to buy food that you usually don't have around the house. I wanted to prove her wrong and so I've been borrowing it, using it the last week. So far, I've made, all from food I had or wasn't too much out of ordinary from what I buy: Orange/Apple smoothie, Orange/Strawberry/Banana smoothie, Carrot/Lemon juice, Green Flaxy (spinach, pineapple, banana, flaxseed, ice). I plan on keeping it and then making juice/smoothies to start and bring them up to her and my dad's house so they drink their daily vegetables and fruits. I have a 25+ year old VitaMix, which still works, but the Blendtec is soooo much easier to use, clean, and store. Once my mom begins tasting how great everything is, I'll be buying my own unit to replace the one I'm borrowing

Rated 4 out of 5 by spacebetweensound from Works well!!! I first saw this at Costco with my mom and she immediately wanted it. I decided to get it for her as an early Xmas present. We have only used this machine to make ice cream and it worked well. The ingredients didn't really go down--stick to the lower part of the blending jar---like Blendtec advertises and once the ice cream piled up at the bottom below the blade it was hard to blend the upper ice and fruit. I hope this issue only happens with the wild side jar. I may get the square jar and decide to use the blender for other things once the holiday hustle has passed. This is a durable product so I'll give it four stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spamone from Almost perfect First review I've ever written.. This blender is amazing. However,.. water will leak out of it.. so you MUST clean it and pour water out.. NEVER let water stand in it (clean it right after using it!). Also, if it is on the base while water is in it, the water will leak down through the base. When this happened to us, I called and they sent me a new base (how was I to know that the thing was not 'water tight'?) just in case the water damaged something in there.. and then they coached me on NOT letting water stand in it.. So, 2000 uses later (averaging 2 cycles per day for almost 3 years), and still with the original cannister (that water ran through) the seal in the cannister goes bad - the noise changed - which warned me. I'm literally eating black rubber in my smoothie,.. Again, I call Blendtec and the are sending me a new cannister.. and again they coached me on maintenance,.. saying that I should manually spin the blade before loading with food, to get the oil flowing.. and also to NOT push down on top of the blender while it's blending - which i had done a few times to stabilize. I might add.. never let water stand in there which no doubt runs through the cannister and out the bottom..and takes some of the 'lube' with it.. Having said all that.. Great customer service, incredibly easy to use and clean.. and if you load it correctly, it works perfectly EVERY time. I could not be happier.. Whether soup or smoothie or ice creamm.. this thing is worth every penny!!! and did I mention that it is the easiest food processor / blender to clean in the world! ?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elenita from Great item to have. I got this spoonula a few weeks ago, and I was greatly surprise of its ergonomically shape and how easy can be handled. I feel it as an extension of my own hand. It does a very good job pulling, spooning everything out of any dish, whatever the dish shape might be. I had already a good collection of spatulas, but this spoonula is the only one I use now for everything. Everybody needs to have one (or two), it will be the only "spatula" one would ever need. It works wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ladybug328 from Love the long handle I personally think that if you own a blender, you should own a "Spoonula" or "Spectacula". They help, with ease, get everything out with a quick swipe of the spatula. It's sturdy and very attractive looking. I love that it's so easy I can hold the jar with one hand and scoop out every last bit of whatever I've blended with the other hand. Very convenient!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMPuma from No More Waste! This spoonula allows you to get all of the food out of the blender instead of wasting some of it! It doesn't scratch the blender itself and washes up very easily. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PDPatel from Perfect Fit! The spoonula was the second best purchase we made after the Blendtec 725, it's shaped perfectly to work with the Wildside Jar and has a longer than average handle. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lkwhiteman from Works I have only used it once so not sure yet. I like that the handle is plastic and not wooden

Rated 5 out of 5 by PghPammy from Perfect tool for getting under the blade I have other silicon spatulas but this one is better! It really reaches everywhere and the ergonomic handle is fantastic! I just wish I had the option to trade one of mine - I have both the mini & reg Twister and each came with one - for a spoonful a.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chefkmc from Love love love I purchased a blendtec blender for home use nearly 3 years ago. It was the first time I had used blendtec over vitamix. My machine came with the twister jar, and the spectacula. I am thrilled with the clever design and the way the spectacula actually assists in minimizing food waste.The machine has more power allows for more finesse of use, and the pitcher is a chef's dream come true, in that you don't have to spend several minutes scraping out food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by supernovia from Best spatula, but does not last as long as blender I got one of these roughly six years ago. I used it so much (daily at least) I decided to get another so I'd always have one, even if the other was in the dishwasher. One of them broke after about four years, but that's not bad for a spatula, especially one that I use so often. The other is still holding up like a champ. I also use these for stirring foods in my non-stick pans, and the built-in spoon rest is super handy for keeping things clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jgraham from Spectacula Replaced all my old spatulas with these. Both the handle and blade are sturdy. Great for scraping down the sides of any container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Paleofemme from Perfect shape and size Perfect to get all the yumminess out of any of the blendtec jars! I have two of them so one is always available (may need one more!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by PjinMT from Perfect scraper This in the second spectacula I have bought. I love this tool. It does a great job cleaning the sides of both of my pitchers. It is very durable and well made. I find myself using it in bowls also! I am only replacing my old one due to the fact that it fell unknown to me in the dishwasher and melted on the heating element :( other than that I had it for 2 years. Works like a charm! Give it a try a great investment

Rated 5 out of 5 by YMPH from Spectacula is a Great Product! I have had my blentec for a number of years but started using the Spectacula a couple of years ago. It makes it so easy to maximize my yield using the blender. I like it so much that I purchased four Spectaculas to give as gifts this Christmas. Spectacula is my favorite spatula!
