Product Description

Blendtec Total Classic Series Blenders

Eliminate the need for other appliances—
at a fraction of the cost.

The Total Blender Classic is the all-in-one appliance that makes smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milk shakes, cappuccinos, margaritas, soups, sauces, bread dough, dressings, salsas and more! 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.

SAFETY MATTERS

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.

Bearing assembly

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.

ONE-TOUCH PERFECTION

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!


Customer Reviews

Also of importance, it is very easy to clean.

So far I am very satisfied with the purchase but there are many more recipes I look forward to trying with this blender and I hope that I am not disappointed.

Cleaning: One thing to note, neither of these will ever look nearly as good as the day you buy it.

I've had this blender for almost a year, and have been very satisfied with everything about it.

First, the following is information that I put together as I was making my own purchase decision.

Amazon has this same product available, in different colors and with different combinations of blending containers, in a bunch of separate listings (and in both the "Home and Kitchen" sections as well as the "Appliances" section) and from different sellers (both Amazon itself, and third party vendors). This makes it difficult to sort out what is available on Amazon, and it also makes it very inconvenient to read through the reviewer comments since they are not all collected in one entry.

To help sort through all of this the following is what I found in doing my own research on this product:

- I believe that essentially there are basically two Blendtec models currently listed on Amazon differing only in the number of cycles that are preprogrammed:
--- One model is the "Total Blender" as designated by Blendtec. It comes packaged with either the "FourSide" blending jar, or the "WildSide" blending jar (see below for explanation of differences), or both.
--- Various colors are available (black, white, or red)
--- The blender has a 1560 watt / 3 peak HP motor
--- It comes with a 7 year warranty (the various Amazon entries have different warranty statements. My blender states 7 year warranty clearly on the box, and on the product registration card included with the blender).
--- The second model is the "Home" or HP3A model, which is not shown on the Blendtec website but is available on Amazon from various sellers. This model has the same base and motor and includes 25 preprogrammed cycles (see below for more detailed explanation).

I recently bought a VitaMix 5200 Blender during a "roadshow" demonstration at Costco. I read a lot of reviews, watched a lot of side-by-side demo's of the VitaMix vs. the Blendtec Total Blender and it is true, comparing these two blenders can be very confusing. They both appear to be great expensive blenders and will both blend very well. A couple of things tipped the scale for me in favor of the Blendtec.
1) When I brought the VitaMix home and placed it on the kitchen counter, it was massive, much to large and tall to fit under a kitchen cabinet, and looked out of place unless you have a very large kitchen that can handle the sheer size of this blender. I was also not thrilled about the need to use the tamper to jam the food down into the blades. The Blendtec is shorter, fits under a cabinet, and the overall footprint of the machine is much smaller, yet powerful enough to blend any kinds of food, ( Blendtec 3 HP, VitaMix 2.1 HP motors). Also, no need to use a tamper, especially while using the Wildside Jar. The VitaMix can also blend any kinds of food, especially while using the tamper tool so the horsepower of each machine should not be a huge concern.
2) I knew that I would need to purchase the extra blending "jar" for each, about an additional $ 100+ expense for each blender. When I found out that Costco.com was selling the Blendtec online for just under $ 400 including both the FourSide and WildSide Jars, that was to good to pass up. To purchase the VitaMix with both the wet and dry jars at the Costco roadshow, it would have cost close to $ 500.
3) Manual (VitaMix) vs. digital (Blendtec) controls. Personal preference. Do you want to manually control your blending or push a preset setting with some manual options?

I thought $400 bucks was kind of a lot for a blender. However I have a Osterizer blender that wasn't doing the job. It would lock up sometimes when trying to blend ice cubes. Can't make a smoothie like that! So I bit the bullet and sprang for this Blendtec.

WoW what a machine! It gobbles through ice like nobodies business. Someone already mentioned the small footprint of the blender. Even when the blending jar is setting on the motor it fits on my kitchen counter under the cabinet. This is kind of a big deal for me because I have a small kitchen and limited counter space. The jar will make enough smoothies for 4 adults, maybe a little more.

Clean up is a snap. My Osterizer had to be taken apart to clean. The blade unscrewed from the jar and there was a rubber gasket that came off too. Somehow that got lost and without it the blender would leak. There is nothing like this with the Blendtec. There is only the jar, the motor, and the lid. Nothing to take apart, nothing to get lost. To clean the jar you can wash it by hand, or blend a little water with a drop of dish soap. Rise it out and you are good to go. The lid itself is made of a firm rubber that seals well on the jar

The only thing I can think of in the derogatory sense is the blender is loud. The motor sounds something like a jet engine, and then the ice rattling around the jar makes a racket, lol. But that is the price one pays for power! And this is one powerful blender.

Vitamix 5200 vs. Blendtec Signature Series Blender (with wildside and twister jar)

How they compare and rank for me:

Prices (at time):
1.) Blendtec is about $275 during hot promotions (Kohls) for blender and two jars.
2.) Vitamix is about $300 for refurbished, $375 for new (one jar).

Value:
1.) Blendtec is cheaper, has a better warranty and includes two jars.
2.) Vitamix is one jar only.

Size:
1.) Blendtec is much smaller, takes up less space. Fits under cabinet.
2.) Vitamix is massive and almost seems 50% bigger- but also a little more substantial.

Power:
1.) Both seemed to have similar power.

Features:
1.) The Blentec had programmable features, which was nice to be able to step away from machine.
2.) Vitamix features a damper, which was nice when the contents stick.

Jars:
1.) Blendtec wildside jar is significantly better. Is pours easier, fits under cabinets and easier to clean (plus no sharp edges). I rarely used the twister jar- which seems small for the tasks it is needed.
2.) Vitamix jar has a nice rubber handle and solid feel to it. Feels heavy and substantial. However, product tends to get stuck underneath blades.

Looks:
1.) I think the Blendtec is smaller, more subtle, and more attractive.
2.) If you want the blender to be the focal point of your kitchen, go with the Vitamix. It looks more industrial, but is also pretty plain. It's very big.

Cleaning:
One thing to note, neither of these will ever look nearly as good as the day you buy it. For some reason, the plastic canisters fog up, and never really get truly clean. That said:
1.) Blendtec canister is a lot easier to clean, particles just fall out the bottom.
2.
