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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunny from Very happy I bought this taking a risk as I'm using it in Europe. These things are so expensive here. But turns out, this thing works incredibly well with a converter. It has so much power. Couldn't be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJLCOOKS from And the winner is... Some say it's a coin flip between Vitamix and Blendtec but I'm here to tell you that ts not even close. 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 5 out of 5 by alchemist from If Apple made blender... The design is amazing and so is the craftsmanship. The housing is die-cast stainless steel. This blender is powerful, quiet and versatile. It is very compact and fits under cabinets will room to spare.

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.
