For the Thickest Blends

The Twister jar features all of these unique Blendtec advantages:

  • Extra-strong, patented single-prong tuned wingtip blade
  • Easy-to-read jar markings up to 16 fl oz
  • Made from impact-resistant, BPA-free copolyester
  • Compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders (not compatible with Blendtec mixers)

The Twister jar is ideal for:

  • Bread & cookie crumbs
  • Nut butters
  • Hummus
  • Baby food
  • Single-serve smoothies

To use the jar, simply add ingredients and twist the lid counter-clockwise while the blend cycle is running. This twisting motion forces the ingredients from the sides of the jar back into the blade, allowing you to achieve a perfect blend every time.

Also included is the Spectacula™ spatula—engineered specifically for the Twister. We made this spatula just the right length and shape so you can get nearly every morsel out of your jar.

  • Capacity: 37 oz, with measurements up to 16 oz
  • Dimensions: 5.7" wide x 7.5" tall (with lid) x 5.7" deep (7" with spout and handle)
  • Weight: 1.3 lbs
  • 3 year warranty
Twister Jar is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Curry Paste! This new gadget helps me make Malaysian curry paste in a jiffy! However, the downside is the jar is discolored from blending all the spices, especially the turmeric & chilies. Also, wished it was cheaper so I could buy another one for my smoothies. I don't want my smoothies to smell like curry! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does the job I received this along with my refurbished Blendtec Classic. I use it to make sorbets and nut butter. As long as you don't overfill it, and you cut the frozen fruit for the sorbets to the right size (about one-inch cubes), it works well. I put in a lot of almonds one night while making almond butter and it took a few processes to get it completely smooth. Once I put the proper amount of almonds in, it worked fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size & Build! Using Nutribullit 900 for ease of use, containers and worked for a while. Cheap seals, blades and can never reach customer service. I finally purchased the twister jar to replace old jar and should have done this in the 1st place. Rocks! Blends so much better than NB900. Don't have to worry about ice anymore. Fits under cabinet perfect & easy to clean. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best kitchen accessory I own. Be it known that the twister jar might be the greatest add on accessory ever made for a kitchen appliance, better yet it is for what might be the greatest kitchen appliance ever made, the Blendtec. The nut butter, and pure frozen ingredient ice creams are stellar. 'Nuff said.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can't I make now? I finally have a complete set of jars: the Twister, the Mini-Twister and the Wildside I use my Blendtec every day make protein shakes, but I also make hummus, sauces, batters, nut milk, dressings, and dips using whichever of the three sizes of jars is right for the task. I made bean fudge over the holidays using my Mini-Twister jar since I didn't have the Twister jar yet, and I thought the Wildside jar was just too big. The fudge was good, but it hard to make in the Mini-Twister so that's when I decided I needed the Twister jar too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Twister Jar Works great at helping to blend thick smoothies. Only downfall is that the jar lid does not fit tightly (allowing it to 'twist') and liquid spills over, sometimes making a mess! I wish Blentec would offer glass instead of plastic jars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leave lumps of fruit when making smoothie I just bought the signature series set which came with a twister jar a week ago. While the wildside jar was not able to pulverize the seed of the strawberry when making smoothie, this one is even more disappointed. I used it today and it leaves lumps of pineapple and strawberry in the smoothie. Very disappointed, thinking whether I should return it or not.
Date published: 2014-11-23
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well! I bought this so I wouldn't have to buy a separate appliance (food processor) to make my hummus recipe. I was trying to make it in the large pitcher but had to constantly stop/stir/start to get it to the right consistency. This pulverizes it in about 15 seconds while using the twister top constantly. The only negative is that it vibrates severely while mixing, not sure if that can be alleviated somehow but still happy with the job it does. Also super easy to clean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was not what I expected, it was better I ordered the smaller jar, and it was much smaller than I expected. I really do love it. I use it as my main jar now. I still will replace my cracked larger jar, that I have had for over 20 years. I use my blendtec everyday. Usually twice a day. Once for my morning juice and then I usually have spices etc that need blending at dinner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cool idea, but it's a jar for cost of a ninja. I bought this jar no more than a year ago and the internal connection from the base to the blade broke. I've had just as much luck with the wide side blender, but the spatula is cool, but I'm not paying $130 for a spatula.

Can I use this to make nut flour? 

Asked by: fbourget
The Twister jar might be used more for making nut butters. The Twister lid brings the sticky pieces of nuts back to the blade and will release the nuts oils to make butter. Nut flour can be made in this jar or any or our other jars as long as the nut is not over blended and stops before the oils are released. This may be accomplished more easily in a bigger jar like the FourSide or WildSide+ jar.

Why is this twister jar not compatible with the Mix and Blend model?

Asked by: juliefes
The Mix n' Blend is our only blender motor with less than 3.0 PHP (peak horsepower), having a 2.0 PHP motor. This is plenty of power for the Fourside jar but other jars like the Wildside+ jar are too big and heavy. The Wildside+ jar requires too much torque to blend properly and could damage the motor. The same is true for the Twister jar due to the nature of ingredients used for this jar being for much heavier and thicker blends. It could probably work to some degree but is not recommended due to the potential of harming the motor.

When using the Twister lid, you do need to turn it counter-clockwise for the whole blend. This ensures that it continuously scrapes the sides and gives you a thick blend. The Twister jar was built specifically with thicker blends in mind; such as: nut butters, milkshakes, baby food, hummus, etc. See it in action:

Would this be suitable to replace a food processor? 

Asked by: rox1984
All of our jars can act like a food processor including the Twister jar, although the Wildside+ jar is better for most types of food processing. If the food item is stickier than other ingredients and gets stuck on the sides then the Twister is better for those types of blends as the lid has tines coming down that scrape the food back to the blade when you twist it. While our jars can process food, it is not as consistent as a traditional food processor and therefore may not act as a complete replacement.
