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!

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).

Style Name: NewColor: Red - FourSide Jar
I had a vitamix for 20 years. It was truly a work horse. When it finally went out and I saw a demo at Costco, I decided to switch and get the blendtec, which I've had now for a little over six months.
What I like about the blendtec more: size, it really makes a difference that it fits under my cabinets, so I keep it out all the time and use it more often. Both machines make a perfect smoothie, even a green smoothie, which is what I mostly use the machine for. However, recently I've been making sorbets and ice treats, and the blendtec really struggles without any liquid. The blades freeze up and it makes a horrible sound; which is concerning. I agree with another viewer that it does need some sort of probe tool, to work solid ingredients. At some point, I will probably order the larger 96oz container, which I understand also incorporates ingredients much quicker/easier.
Costco gave an extra four year warranty to Blendtecs standard 3 - which makes it equal to the 7 years of Vitamix, which is nice. If you're undecided about the two, just know that Vitamix really is a tank, perhaps not as pretty sitting on the counter, but it would probably outlast a Blendtec. Both perform very well, so I think it comes down to the look and longevity.

Update: The Blendtec motor died one week after I began making frozen sorbets. Returned it to Costco and bought a new Vitamix 500 from Amazon. I guess the question of longevity has been answered.

I got my Blendtec about two months ago, and I wanted to wait until it got through one hundred cycles before I posted my review, just to make sure the 'honeymoon' stage was over. For those that are not familiar with the blender, the LCD screen on the base keeps track of how many cycles it has been through. A cycle is basically pushing any button on the blender except pulse.

Initial Impressions:
I quickly figured out that the blades on the Blendtec work slightly different than the blenders I was accustomed with. The blade doesn't really have an 'upward' angle to it, so if what you're blending will not fall to the bottom of the jar, it will not be blended. The best example I can think of is an orange: previous blender's blades would pull it down into the blades and then keep chipping away at it, but on the Blendtec it would just balance between the center bolt on the blade and the jar wall. But boy, when that fruit was sliced and did get into the blade, there was little left of it. Previous blenders had left me accustomed to fine chunks of whatever I was blending, but the Blendtec could turn a whole unpeeled orange into what looked like orange syrup.

I have seen several reviews cite the Blendtec as being excessively loud, but I did not really think that. It IS loud compared to a $12 Durabrand 200 watt blender, but it is not much louder than a higher end (~$60) consumer blender. And the preprogrammed cycles mean you can just start a cycle (around 40 seconds) and walk away.

While Racking Up the Cycles:
I have primarily used the blender about once a day in an effort to help me work some fruits and veggies in my diet. I have also used it a few times for things like pancake batter and iced drinks.

Style Name: NewColor: Black
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?
