Product Description

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.



Blendtec's extra-strong jar material is exceptionally light. So the only thing you need to worry about lifting is your next delicious blend.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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

My husband and I started juicing and making smoothies several months ago. Once we realized that using our blender would stay a daily part of our routine, we figured it was time for an upgrade. We did ALOT of research, trying to decide between a Vitamix and a Blendtec. First, let me say that in my opinion, you could buy either brand and end up a with a great blender. There was nothing about the Vitamix that made us think it would be a bad choice; we did find things that we thought wouldn't be the right fit for us. Here's why we chose the Blendtec over the Vitamix:

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.

I've repeatedly tried to dramatically increase my consumption of raw fruits and greens with little success. It is extremely difficult to chew large quantities of produce. Blended food is the answer. I have prepared all manner of concoctions using the Blentec WildSide blender which are delicious and nutritious. The Blendtec works as advertised. It is loud, but tolerably so. My drinks, smoothies and sauces are blended to smooth perfection in a remarkably short period of time. I definitely recommend getting the 96 oz container. I prepare food for one, or sometimes two, and find this larger size to be perfect. The container is also very easy to clean. I debated whether to buy the Blendtec or the Vitamix; after researching, I decided on the Blentec and am very pleased with my decision. The product is expensive, but it works very, very well. I use it several times a day. Think of it this way: instead of cooking your food on a stove or in an oven, you are processing the food in a blender. You are essentially cooking without heat.

It may be expensive, but this blender is crazy! I considered buying a second so that I could make my own "Will it Blend?" video and see if the Blendtec blender could blend another Blendtec blender (say that five times fast); I don't doubt that it could.

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.

I am so in love with this blender. Our famly started drinking green smoohies a few months ago and with our basc blender and they were pretty good. Once I knew this was going to be a habit I purchased the Blend Tec and the smoothies are 100x better. I use the blender every day; sometimes twice. I have used it in baking (mixing ingrediace) and love the cook book... This is a must buy!

I got the Blendtec Wildside one month ago. I have used it every day, usually two or three times. I have been intrigued by the ideas of the green smoothies for some time and have extensively researched blender options. I chose the Blendtec over the VitaMix because of the lower height of the machine, the computerized blending options, and after seeing live demonstrations at Costco. It is not very often that I get a product that far exceeds my expectations, but this does just that. I've thrown every fruit and vegetable known to man in my green smoothie concoctions, and it performs like magic every time.

It was expensive, and my wife was not thrilled at first, but she is a believer now. I put it to her this way: I know I'll continue to use this because every morning I get to drink something that gives me as much satisfaction as a large Dairy Queen Banana shake! But with the benefit of being very healthy for me!

I dropped 17 pounds in this first month and know that more is on the way. You probably can't go wrong with either this or the VitaMix, but I can tell you with certainty that I'm very pleased with this choice! Oh, and I really think the larger "Wildside" 96 oz size works better because of the 4" blade vs 3" in the standard pitcher (My unit came with both pitchers).
