It replaces up to 9 other appliances with 1 fast, easy-to-use machine. This package includes the new precision–tuned 4" blade in the large, nearly 3-quart, BPA-free WildSide jar. The new large blade and large jar combination powers through tougher blending tasks and larger recipes with ease—and in less time.
ANATOMY OF A BLENDER
FORGET THE WRIST WORKOUT
Blendtec's extra-strong jar material is exceptionally light. So the only thing you need to worry about lifting is your next delicious blend.
HARD CARBON BRUSHES
You didn't know that motors have brushes, did you? They do. And they can wear out quickly. Unless they're made of electrographitic carbon, like in a Blendtec blender. Then they'll last a very, very long time.
STAINLESS STEEL – THE PROFESSIONAL'S CHOICE
Blendtec's ultra-hard stainless steel blades are cold-forged and tuned for heavy use. This allows them to be stronger and resist corrosion much better than lesser blades.
SINGLE BLADE, MANY ADVANTAGES
Blendtec's patented vertical wingtips and precision angles are engineered for ultimate efficiency. The distinct single-blade design allows your ingredients to fall easily in front of the blades.
THE FIGHT AGAINST FRICTION
Friction is the nemesis of all high-powered equipment. Ball bearings reduce friction so you can blend faster and quieter. It's all surrounded by a rubber mount that absorbs the shock produced by blending ice and frozen fruit.
POWER FOR THE PEOPLE
The most powerful motor available for home blenders is at the heart of your Blendtec experience. More power means easier blending of the most stubborn ingredients.
Be assured that even a blender as powerful as a Blendtec blender is ETL certified, which means it meets national safety standards.
DOES YOUR BLENDER—HAVE A BRAIN?
Most blenders are dumb. It's pretty much "go" and "stop," with a few speeds in between. But a Blendtec looks after itself – monitoring everything from speed to operating temperature to motor safety. All while ?flawlessly executing pre-programmed blend cycles.
NO DETAIL TOO SMALL
Even the smallest parts in a Blendtec product have received big attention from our engineers.
Blade assembly nut
Round and smooth for easy cleaning—and—permanently attached at the factory – adding to jar safety.
Sonically welded into the jar for extra strength and durability.
SEE IT, USE IT
Out of sight, out of mind? Forget it. Blendtec's small size and low profile mean you can store your blender in plain sight right where you can use it most — on your countertop.
We've done all the trial and error so you don't have to. Pre-programmed blend cycles let you craft perfect food creations with just one touch – from your very first try.
Each Blendtec blender comes with the Fresh Blends recipe book. Each of its 200+ recipes delivers delicious results using blend cycles of 90 seconds or less!
Anyone who wants the power of a commercial grade blender for home use can simply place this Connoisseur on the kitchen counter (it fits under most upper cabinets) and crush ice to their heart's content. Those who blend smoothies or soups for a living can recess the flat top of the blender motor into a counter for fast use and easy clean-up. (Instructions are included for installation.) With state-of-the-art electronics and a white-on-blue LED panel, this 1500-watt, 3-horsepower Blendtec blender showcases 30 pre-programmed blend cycles with timed blends and changing blade speeds, everything the home chef or juice bar owner needs.
Designed with almost perfectly vertical sides, the Connoisseur base features a top-facing keypad with four numbered buttons that correspond to different blend cycles along with two buttons labeled 'S' for speed and 'P' for pulse. Pressing the 'S' button ramps the motor up; releasing the button sets the desired speed at which the blender then will run for 50 seconds. Eighteen of the 30 preprogrammed cycles vary the blade speeds to draw food into the vortex, while twelve remain fixed. A switch on the lower front turns the blender on and off, while the LED panel above it indicates which cycle is operating and counts down how many seconds remain (and also warns of overloading).
For measuring on the go, the square, 64-ounce polycarbonate jar has graduated markings for up to five cups on one side and 32 ounces on another. The flexible lid presses in snugly and removes quickly by pulling on any of the four corner tabs; a central plug with a small airhole in the middle can be popped out of the lid to let steam escape when blending hot liquids. Included with the blender are instructions for use and a spiral-bound, 112-page recipe book. The jar, dishwasher-safe only on the top rack, is covered against leakage or breakage for one year. Blendtec covers the motor with a three-year warranty against defects, while the jar blade and the motor base drive socket are covered by a lifetime warranty.--Ann Bieri
