Through February 14th, you can get $40 off the purchase of their newest edition… the Twister Jar. This is the lowest price ever for this amazing jar! The Twister Jar can create extra-thick blends like nut butters, hummus, baby food, dips, dressings, thick shakes and more! Compare peanut butter in the FourSide Jar (4-5 minutes) vs. the Twister Jar (35-45 seconds). The jar can be loaded up to a full 16 oz., which is incredible for dense ingredients. These jars normally sell for $129, but get it today for only $89! Of course, if you don’t have the blender base… read on.
Below I am going to share my fourteen reasons, yes 14 (why does it have to be 10 like everybody else?!), why you should have Blendtec helping you in the kitchen.
So easy to clean. The whole thing is a breeze to clean! The buttons don’t have cracks and the motor base can be wiped down easily with a wet cloth. The wide square base of this blender makes cleaning so much easier then Vitamix. You can toss it in the dishwasher or put in a couple drops of soap with water and pulse a few times, then rinse and dry it!
Makes smooth sauces with ease. I love how I can throw in a whole apple (skin, seeds and all!), add a little water and in several seconds get raw applesauce. Makes wonderful salsas, hummus, tomato sauce, mayo and other sauces in just over a minute! But you have to make sure to have enough moisture to keep it going without it getting too hot… normal for any blender.
Better technology. I love how it shows on the screen how many times I’ve put Blendtec to work… over 930 times and it still works like new! When you run Blendtec, a timer comes up to show how much time is left before its done. Like I shared above… it is a ‘smart’ blender with 17 settings to get the job done well! I appreciate how the company took care to design their blenders with a wider base so there is no need to use a stick to push everything into the blade. That was one thing that bothered me about all the blenders I’ve used growing up, the narrow base… it never made sense to me because in order to ‘cut & puree’ your food up, you need room to allow the food to move around the blade, duh!

I have a Blendtec! Actually we bought a Vitamix over 4 years ago at Costco, and thanks to their return policy we returned it the same week, it was a huge and complicating monster, which made it unappealing to use. Now, just a couple months ago we got ours at such a great price at Costco that included the wildside jar. Prior to seeing at Costco, I’ve never even heard of it! But fell in love during their presentation. I do have a problem making almond flour, it just wants to turn to almond butter instead 😉 Oh well, almond flour is the same price as getting almonds per lb, though it is not soaked/sprouted… otherwise, what a lovely blender, I’m so fortunate.
I was so GLAD to hear you prefer Blendtec because it seemed like all the foodies mention Vitamix, I almost felt like I got a second choice machine 🙂 Not so much now, because I agreed with every one of your Likes for this machine!

Natalie- Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I was wondering if anybody was going to do that! Yeah, I know what you mean about feeling like Blendtec is the “second-choice” blender when it should be the first! All those foodies out there need to compare… like I did and I know most, if not all, will vote for the Blendtec.
I know what you mean about the almonds. It seems to get a little hot towards the end and ends up “melting” the almonds, BUT… you can always freeze the almonds and the contianer. That way it will stay cool. When it starts to get hot… simply put it back in the freezer and let it cool. I know, something that should take a few minutes ends up taking much longer, but it is worth it! Also, I use only the pulse button when powdering the almonds and orange slices.
Again, thanks so much for sharing your love for the Blendtec!!
