Rated 5 out of 5 by Swipp from Upgrade your VitaMix with the XR Jar! I have had my VitaMix blender since 1996, and it is still running strong. But I was impressed with how the Blendtec pulls things into the blade. When I make salsa with my VitaMix I have to use the push rod to feed the contents into the blades. I have to do this quickly, for I likely chunky salsa and blending too long ruins that. This Blendtec WildSide+ XR jar fits right on my VitaMix and works beautifully! Making smoothies and salsa is a snap - and much easier. The jar cleans itself better with much less water. The jar fits on the VitaMix base on the counter top under the upper cabinets. I have one jar for everything (I grind wheat for the bread I make) instead of two. This is a wonderful way to get so many of the Blendtec benefits if you are not yet ready to retire your VitaMix base. I definitely recommend this WildSide+ XR jar for VitaMix owners!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by radlinda from I LOVE my "blended family" blender!!! I bought the Blendtec bowl to go on my Vitamix blender because of the wideness and easy scooping of content. I am pleased with the blade and how well it blends the foods, and how easy it is to clean. It is a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GlenFS from Works great on Vitamix I purchased this for my mother in-law whom I'd handed down my Vitamix. She complained the Vitamix jar leaked and was too tall to fit under the cabinet overhang on the counter. Problems solved, and she's pleased as punch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FormerVitamixUser from Really Great - selling me on Blendtec I had loved the older vitamix that my Mom gave me years ago but the newer design I was not happy with, the mix was not great and the design of the jar and the top to the jar was hard to use and hard to clean. I decided to give Blendtec a try by getting this jar to use instead of my vitamix jar and I am really loving it. Works beautifully, very strong and thorough blending and much easier to clean! I have to say I wasn't sure but this really has been a huge plus in favor of Blendtec.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sgthut from No more tamper for me. I've used my vitamix blender almost everyday for more than five years, and the only dislikes I had was using that tamper and fitting the tall jars in the fridge. Well no more. The blendtec jars work great, don't need a tamper, blend faster to me, and less prep time. They're shorter so I can lower the shelve in the fridge for more room. Plus they stack taking up less space on the counter. I wish I would found them sooner. A+, 5 out of 5 stars, great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sawdust from Bought to replace cracked Vitamix jar. Very satisfied with the Blendtec jar. Much easier to clean than the Vitamix and it blends without using a plunger. Highly recommend for purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pam57 from works well I prefer the Blendtec-rebel jar for my Vitamix base over the Vitamix jar. It cleans easier without cutting my fingers and doesn't seem to accumulate hard water stains on the plastic like the Vitamix jar. I did think the price was a little too high though. I was able to get it during a sale, otherwise the price would have been a deterrent

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jess54 from I just bought this jar and I was hoping it would fit my blender and unfortunately it did not. It would be nice to enter your model number on their website and direct you to the right jar. My blender is the classic and I wanted to get a bigger jar and it states that all jars fit blendtec blenders. I bought it two was ago!!!
