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 CG Scheid from Great features! I bought this to help me with a juice fast I was trying and this has turned out to be my most favorite kitchen appliance. It is sturdy, efficient, and a great quality machine. Clean up is easy, there's a button for that. I don't have to take the blades out of the machine (and the mess that makes) for cleaning and the lid is tight and secure when in use. Not only does it make juices, but I got a recipe booklet too. I am so low maintenance when it comes to food so if I can use this blender to make meals, you bet I'm gonna do it. I am so glad I bought this and with such a high quality machine, I know it will last for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DrBrad from Smooth Smoothies in a minute I had one of the very old all-in-one blender/bread maker/mixer made by the original company, KTec from 25 years ago and it still works well but have wanted to replace it with one of these newer blenders for a few years. We finally did it and i absolutely love it. The motor is higher powered than our older one and when making a smoothie with frozen fruit we have no more lingering chunks and they are super smooth. I love the new "cleaning" button. I just put a drop of dish soap and some warm water and hit the button, rinse and done. No scrubbing. This is not your ordinary blender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bulldog007 from Awesome The Blendtec - Classic 575 is the most awesome blender I've ever owned. I've looked for years for a "Tool Time Tim" blender that has massive power and can obliterate ice without it's tongue hanging out and sounding like parts are going to start flying off. I've worn out every other blender that I've ever owned. This is the first blender I've purchased that is up to the abuse I heap on a blender. I read a lot of reviews talking about a high noise level but this blender isn't any noisier that any other blender out there. Over time it really doesn't cost any more to go first class and Blendtec is the least expensive and most enjoyable over the long haul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lavidabuena from Loving the new blender... My wife really didn't want to spend this much money on "a blender", but the local access to fresh, exotic fruits at the vacation house combined with the health benefits of drinking grape seeds and avocado seeds convinced her. We throw two cups of grapes in with a cup of ice everyone loves the flavor and texture. When adults are over, we add Bacardi rum and quickly run out ingredients due to the demand... LOL Quick clean-up and easy work getting through a jar full of cubed carrots/papaya with peel, frozen soursop blocks (guanabana), spinach, passion fruit, ginger and whatever else we see! We make drinks for breakfast, post-workout, when it's too late to eat and also as a way to get the nieces/nephews feed quickly without fighting about vegetables; they taste the fruits and neglect to realize there are three to five vegetables mixed in there too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Earplugs from Alarmingly loud The blender works well and as advertised, but it is alarmingly loud. I don't know if it is because I have a refurbished model, the the noise level is almost unbearable. Is this typical??

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlenChina from Waiting I am so happy to introduce this blender to my son. Ray has been a vegetarian for over 20 yrs and recently has gone Vegan. A recent discussion regarding Almond Milk prompted me to intotroduce a blendtec and the nice guy I am I bought one my son and his family to enjoy. Last Dec I bought a blendtec for daughter and her family, her two little girls love the veg juices. My (2-yr old) VitaMix I will soon retire it and replaced it with a new 'blendtec' can't wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sam W from You get the quality you pay for I have been very pleased with the BlendTecs I have used over the years. I purchased my own Classic 575 Certified Refurbished and it has proven to be a work horse. Since it doesn't have a blade, I don't need to worry about it getting beat up. I use it frequently. I do not recommend always using their strategy for putting liquids at the bottom, fruits and veggies in the middle and frozen items (like ice) on top. I like putting kale in my smoothies, and if you use their strategy, you liquify the kale. If you put the ice on bottom and kale on top, though, you will get small bits of kale (or whatever veggies you have) which adds a very nice crunch and texture to the smoothie. This mama jamba is loud. All blenders are loud, but this one is on the high end of loud. I don't mind, because the blend time is so short with this thing (much shorter than conventional blenders) that the added volume is fine for me. The BlendTec has remarkable blending prowess!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jellybean from Impressive but scary We bought our blendtec about a month ago. It's working fine and does everything we expected. It definitely can get loud, though the lowest setting is relatively quiet (like a medium sized vacuum cleaner), and anyway we were forewarned about the noise. My only comment is that it's a pretty scary machine - the thing is powerful and I am still slightly in awe of it. I think the awe is preventing me from fully experimenting with it. But am hoping that with time, this little fella is going to change what our entire pantry looks like, now that almost anything can be made by grinding nuts, seeds and the like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by A Wheeler from Super Smooth Blends I bought this to make homemade formula for my child with a g-tube. I needed a blender that could make very smooth blends from seeds, meat, fruits and veggies so that it flows through our feeding pump without clogging. This blender is doing the job. I've used it to make 12 batches so far. It leaves behind less waste when I run it through the food mill after blending and I only have to run it through the food mill once instead of twice like my blends made in my old blender. It did take some time to get used to operating the touchscreen but I am getting the hang of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mitoy221 from Additional containers I've had it for a month and am in love. 1st and formost it has a big container, 2nd the extra containers are the best especially the smallest one, it lets me prepare on the fly recipes like salsas, a quick garli mash, its just fantastic... I do have a Vitimix and it is very good as well but no extra jars. Expecially a small one to do all the small things. The only thing with the Blendtec that I have aproblem with are the lids. For the small one if I do any grinding like oatmeal into powder the powder seeps out from the lid, no biggie bit gets a lil messy. Other than that I've experienced only good things. ANd I'm in love....Love my Vitamix but Blendtec for me works divine....

Rated 5 out of 5 by beanabeana from LOVE MY BLENDTEC - and it loves me too!!! This is my very first Blendtec blender though a bit pricey and has hurt my budget ....I have to admit I love it and can't live without it. It blends wonderfully and really isn't as loud blending as I expected it to be from reading previous reviews about how noisy it is. It gets the job done quickly, efficiently, it is versatile, and even displays cute little messages to boost my blending ego. Oh, and best thing is I have already earned enough points to earn my first free reward for just doing what I love anyways BLENDING.....thank you BLENDTEC I love my blender!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bswan84 from best blender ever! We bought this about a month ago and have used it so much already. We have enjoyed the way Blendtec blends the drinks and how versatile it is. We have been able to use it as a food processor as well! We enjoy all the codes we get after making so many blends and the free stuff we have received (shipping was free too!). Also great customer service! We had an issue getting the codes to work and we had a representative work for a few days to get it to work and was super helpful and made sure to let us know he was continuing to work on it for us. Overall our experience has been OUTSTANDING!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kalichula from Excellent I purchased this blender 2 weeks ago, and have been using it 3x/day. Wow, simply amazing results with anything you blend. I've had smoothies, whole food juices, sorbet, soup, salsa, and the list goes on. Very easy to operate and easier to clean. Worth every penny. I don't find it noisy at all, just as any blender when in use. My neighbor couldn't hear it , through the thin walls between us. I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by blackhawk 47 from Not that impressed First time I wanted to use the 725 blender to blend a soup I got an error code 4 and was not able to use the blender. Before calling the next day I tried the blender and it seemed to work. a month later I made a frozen drink with frozen peaches from our garden and had to break up the peaches to get them to blend. I did a second batch and the blender stopped because of the over heat protection. I would have expected to be able to make two batches of frozen smoothies without over heating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nated from Great Performance We love the blender. Very easy to use and very effective. The only issue I have is the lid. The lid seems to work well for the most part. It doesn't seal. It also feels a little flimsy. I tried the self cleaning and didnt do it right but regardless I put too much water in it 3/4 full, started it and then took my hand off. The thing exploded. It was impressive to see. The only improvements would be to allow the lid to seal, make lid firmer and airtight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LugNet from Not perfect but enjoying it Lids do not seal completely and the center part of the lid more for stopping splashes from going into the room. Containers are useful for making things less than the half the size of the container, so you don't blend drinks for more than two people at a time. Otherwise, all the great things people have said about this blender are true. My wife is losing her sense of humor about the encouraging messages that come up after blending when what she was running was the wash cycle. "I should tweet THAT recipe?!" She is VERY satisfied with how well this blender handles the THICK frozen smoothies she makes. Sometimes she has to start them with the frozen treat setting and then run them with the smoothie program. Flat touch screen makes base oh so easy to clean.
