Making smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milk shakes, margaritas, soups, bread dough, dressings, salsas and more could never be so easier than with the Blendtec Blender. With it’s Powerful 1,560-watt and 3 peak horsepower direct-drive motor you can make just about anything with it. The features are illuminated on the blender’s control panel. It is easy to read and has universal icons that enable effortless selection of the blend cycles to tell the motor when to speed up or slow down. Plus, it will shut off automatically. It is also BPA-free and comes with a 8 year warranty.
I got the chance to try out a Blendtec Wildside Blender with a Twister Jar. The Blender was the perfect size to fit on the kitchen counter or underneath it and didn’t take up too much space. My favorite feature was the illuminated display when you plug-in the blender. You can choose what you are blending by pressing the button and it will already set the time. It will blend it by speeding up and slowing down on its own and give a countdown to tell you how much longer until it is blended. So with a single touch you can have it blended without messing with it over and over. The motor is designed to stay cool but if it does get too hot it will shut itself down until it is cooled off. It’s almost like it has a computer brain built into the machine.
Since my kids love smoothies so much, I decided to play around and make some smoothies that they can enjoy in the morning before school. Making the recipes was a snap with the Blendtec Blender. I loved that I didn’t have to push the button over and over to make sure it was blended. Since the blender did it for me I could move on to the next smoothie. Check out the smoothies that I made using the Blendtec Blender below.

The Twister Jar was a great addition to the Blendtec Blender. It is a smaller jar that is used for thicker recipes but I liked to use it for my morning protein shakes since it was smaller. The Twister Lid that comes with it features tines that rotate and push ingredients off the side so you can get all the ingredients blended. It even comes with a spatula that you can use to scrap the sides as well. My husband even used it to make iced coffee and it worked well to blend the ice cubes. The Twister Jar securely fits on the Blendtec Blender and is compatible with all Blendtec consumer blenders.
Blendtec Blender is great for making so many different things and used in so many ways.And to clean up is a cinch. All you have to do is throw everything into the dishwasher.
