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.

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 James C from Best Blender we have ever owned We have had it for about 4 months now and can not imagine how we would ever get along without one. Almost frighteningly powerfull. Blends any food you can put in it. Fun to use. Purchased the mini twister jar to grind almonds and pecans for low carb pie crusts. You need one you just dont know it yet!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Margo from Quality downhill Loved our first Blendtec but motor began overheating after the first 9 months. Our replacement model has an annoying cheap Blendtec label on it that pops out just enough to dribble food inside the unit. The prior better are unit was a solid piece behind the label. My daughter is having same issue. Guess we'll both upgrade to. Vitamix if we have further issues.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Blendin from Super powerful Who knew this is how blenders were supposed too work? It's extremely powerful and has no problem crushing ice and plenty of frozen fruit. My only complaint is if the plastic center part of the lid is dirty at all, specifically when making two different smoothies in a row, the middle part had popped off twice causing the ingredients to fly ALL over the kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by StevenB from Nice pre-programmed features Have used Vitamix 6300, I find the Blendtec 575 to be a nice overall machine. The Four-Side jar is easier to clean than the multi-sided jar on the 6300. The 8-year warranty is a nice feature. Purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond, I believe when this unit first came out, it did not come with instructions on the control panel button operations - found the info needed by doing an internet search (no available instructions on Blendec site).

Rated 5 out of 5 by workout beast from best value on the market I researched blentec and vitamix to death. Comparing everything, they are both amazing but blentec is simply hands down the most convenient with preprogrammed cycles. One touch button and its done, vitamix u have adjust each high speed level. The noise isnt as loud as people are complaing about, it is loud but its got a massive motor!!!! Plus cost is alot better with warranty. I wish the company came up with recipes geared towards workout fanatics like myself. Im bragging so much about the blender to my friends they think i secretly work for the company. Best investmest for yourself

Rated 5 out of 5 by Noveleffect from Absolutely solid! Just got this beast, and it is so quiet and powerful! I had the more standard model blendtec for about 4 years and it was always a fantastic blender and pretty much got the job done. I thought I'd give the vitamix a shot, since I heard so many things about their tamper and how well it provides smooth blends. Purchased one and found it weak, and couldn't quite handle the more solid and frozen items quite like the blendtec could. And the tamper was annoying. I ended up returning it. I got this beast, because I felt an upgrade was in order. Wow, I didn't realize just how amazing this thing is until I finally stated using it! VERY quiet and pretty much blends ANYTHING you put in that jar. Worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Airblender from Impressive! I recently bought the Blendtec Stealth. I have used Vitamix, Blendtec, and Breville in the past. This is very similar in performance to my Blendtec 625 that I had, but it is SO MUCH more quiet and a bit more powerful. The only down side is that there seems to be some factory grease on it from out of the box that doesn't seem to be water soluble. It's frustrating because it is such a beautiful looking machine, but then I have this dark grease on it, which gets on my hands and is kind of sticky. Maybe I just got unlucky with that. I digress, this is truly an impressive machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CAtoTX from MacDaddy of Blenders This blender is top notch. I bought this at the beginning of the year (my husband wasn't thrilled with the price) and for the past 8 months it has been the greatest addition to my kitchen and food prep. It grinds nuts without a stutter and purées anything in no time. It's quiet, beyond easy to clean and looks amazing! (My husband is now a huge fan and says he's so glad he got it for me - ha!). Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MRMS from Love it! Our primary concern was to purchase a quiet blender, and this fits the bill completely. All the settings are extremely useful for different kinds of jobs. We love it and are 100% satisfied with this purchase. It is very expensive, but worth it to us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quincys from Best blender we've used! I purchased this for our restaurant about a month ago and love it! Our bar area is pretty small and any other blender we've had has just been too loud. This one can be run without anyone struggling to hear! It also blends the smoothest drinks of any blender I've tried. It's an amazing product and I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by brunorocks111 from Great features I bought this a month ago and wasn't sure if I wanted a food processor or a Blendtec. Well, I'm glad I bought the Blendtec. It's more compact than a bulky food processor and it does the same job !
