Rated 5 out of 5 by Nat Kat from Love my Blendtec The Blendtec is helping me to lead a healthier lifestyle and for that I am very grateful. I have a smoothie every morning for breakfast and have made various dips with this. My biggest problem with blenders before the BT was the blenders inability to handle ice. The BT does a great job with this and the smoothie never has a foamy consistency! It's also very easy to clean. Of all great things though about the blender though- there is one problem. I have the white version and the section that connects to the jar leaves a greasy substance on the base ....and it won't wipe off and has stained my blender base :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by WickedWanda from Best Health Investment! After going thru 2 traumatic surgeries, I embarked on a fitness journey to get my health and life back. This blender was a gift and a blessing. I love it so much I named him Steve. It deserves a name. It's too good to be anonymous lol. I use this blender every single day. I grind up protein powder and everything from hemp hearts, chia, flax to ice cubes in my smoothies and I don't have the chunks or griitiness like other blenders leave behind. It's pretty darn smooth. I've made almond milk, natural nut butters, ice treats and soup. I literally cud not live without Steve at this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by COL M from Great Blender I've owned this blender for almost two months, and I must say it is a great blender. It is extremely powerful, and the Wildside jar's design ensures excellent blending. I also purchased the Mini Twister Jar and it is great for small batches of things such as nut butters, spices and such. My wife wanted a Vitamix, but after a lot of research, I chose this one and am very glad I did. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanK from Very good blender, does it all! I have owned this model for three months, it is my favorite of all the Blendtec models. I have owned the Total Classic 475, 575 (2) and the Signature Series, all within the last year. Love all of them but this one is my favorite. It is heavier then the others so it does not move as much when crushing ice. I gifted all the other models to my family and they love them. We are now a Blendtec family! Very enjoyable to eat healthy and share recipes with my family, Thanks Blendtec!

Rated 5 out of 5 by t00funky from Simply AWESOME! I am a senior male almost two years into drastically changing my diet and eating habits - always looking for ways to better my kitchen 'tool chest', so on the advice of my daughter I purchased the 625 (in black) about a month ago. Where have you been all my life? LOL! I promptly went out and purchased the large twister jar as well - much to my daughter's chagrin. She had planned on getting one for me for Christmas. I simply told her I wasn't about to wait that long, which brought out a chuckle. I haven't been able to make use of this amazing machine as much as I'd like yet, but one of the things I HAVE used it for is nut milks. The absolute BEST is chocolate cashew milk. I can't believe how smo-o-o-o-th it is! Simply AWESOME! 'Store bought' stuff doesn't even come close! In fact, it doesn't even rate - in my humble opinion! I just wish I had more time to 'play' with it, but it'll come. Yeah the price is kinda high but the performance matches it, no problem!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cali from Customer Satisfaction is not good I PAID HIGH DOLLARS FOR THIS MACHINE AND HAVE HAD NO SATISFACTION FROM YOUR COMPANY AT ALL...... MY NEXT MACHINE I WILL BE PAYING THE EXTRA 100.00 AND PURCHASING A VITAMIX. I KNOW FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT VITAMIX STANDS 100% BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT AND THEIR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION!!!!!THEY DON'T ASK YOU TO ACCESS THE PROBLEM OVER THE PHONE WHICH WE HAVE ALREADY DONE ONCE AND THE JAR WAS NOT THE PROBLEM.... YOU QUESTION MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE MACHINE AND ACCESS WHAT YOU THINK MAY BE WRONG WITH THE MACHINE ON THE Phone?. TAKE A LOOK AT THE ATTACHED PICTURES I SENT. ALL THE BLACK PCES SHOULD BE ENOUGH FOR YOU TO PROVIDE A REPLACEMENT!!!!!!!!!

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann1 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 PghPammy from Love it! Perfect for single serve drinks! I am so happy I got this! The mini that came with my blender is ok for small jobs. But the reg size is better because it also has a reg gripper lid so you can make single serve drinks. I also like to make almond butter. So far I'm thrilled with the versatility of this and clean up is a snap.
