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.
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

1) No need for a plunger with the Blendtec. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I hated the thought of having to stand over my blender and plunge the food down. To be fair though, I think with the more expensive versions, a plunger may not be needed.
2) The 96 oz. container and 4" 2 prong blade on the Blendtec. I figured this would be easier to clean than the Vitamix.
3) The Blendtec is shorter and will fit under most cabinets, the Vitamix is taller and therefore will not fit under most cabinets. Being short on cabinet space, it was important to me to be able to push my blender under the cabinet where it could stay "out" but not be in my way.
4) I liked that with the Blendtec, you could do wet or dry in the same container; from what I understand, Vitamix has separate containers for wet and dry.
5) This reason is a bit cheesy, but I thought the Blendtec was more aesthetically pleasing to the eye. If it's going to sit on my counter all the time, I want it to be pretty! :)
So far, I could not be happier!! Yes, for some tougher things like whole frozen strawberries, you have to run the smoothie cycle 2x. That's still ONLY 46 seconds. (and much faster than my old one that took many minutes) The texture is smooth, no chunks, no bits of spinach, perfect. This thing is ridiculously easy to clean. Compared to my older blender that a bunch of parts that you had to take apart, the Blendtec is a breeze to clean. Yes, it is loud. It's a blender. All blenders are loud. My Blendtec is no louder than my old one (a Waring Pro) and it blends 100x better.
Again, I think both brands are probably equally awesome and if you look at the features and figure out which one will fit your needs best, you'll no doubt be happy. I love my Blendtec and will recommend it to everyone.
One more thing, the recipe book that comes with the Blendtec is impressive. It's not the typical 30 page pamphlet that you get with most appliances. It is spiral bound with beautiful pictures and lots of good recipes. There are 10 sections with recipes for Appetizers (Dips, Jams, Salsas, Spreads); Beverages (Cocktails, Coffee, Milkshakes, Milk Substitutes, Smoothies, Whole Juices); Breakfast (Batters, Syrups); Breads (Bread Batters, Bread Dough); Soups; Fondues; Sauces; Salad Dressings; Pureed Foods; Desserts (Cakes, Ice Cream, Pies, Puddings, Miscellaneous Desserts).
I had to ding it 1 star because Blendtec advertises this thing as a great food processor also, and I had hoped to kill 2 birds with 1 stone. In fact, it is a terrible food processor; it has sufficient power, but the gap between the blades and the bottom is too large, so your dry food just gets gunked up below the blade, making for an inconsistent, difficult to remove mess.
This blade design creates the perfect vortex when blending beverages however, and this monster will pulverize anything with sufficient liquid into an amazingly thick and smooth concoction.
Sometimes I have nightmares that it is going to sneak up my stairs at night and try to blend my leg.
To get my daily, "well rounded" fruit/vegetable intake, I cut up a few carrots, a few apples, and a big handful of spinach into the BlendTec (along with a half of a pint of cold water). Yum!
I now rarely use my juice extractor, but I am going to keep it for occassional use (admittedly, the juice from the juice extractor is yummier than the mulch from the BlendTec :)
I was looking for a blender that allowed me to juice without all the waste from the regular juicer, but this is beyond my believe. I did a lot of research, and read several reviews about this blender being noisy, but I don't find it annoying at all. my old blender is almost as noisy and does not even perform half of the functions this one does. I also received a recipe book with my blender which has helped me utilizing it to its full capacity. Another good feature it its size which allows me to store it under my cabinets without being in the way. You may find it a little pricey, but believe me when I tell you that it is worth every single penny. I highly recommend this item if you are serious about your health and nutrition.
