Best Rated Blendtec Blenders Review | Blendtec Model Comparison

Blendtec is a commercial grade and top of the line blender brand. We reviewed 2 of the best rated Blendtec blenders on the market and a Blendtec model comparison. Blendtec blenders are a bit pricey but they do a great job blending.  

Per Wikipedia, in 1996 Tom Dickson, founder and CEO of Blendtec, introduced the WildSide blending jar — a unique design that eliminated the need for stir sticks and plungers to make thicker blends. The technology was so effective that Vita-Mix decided to use the design in the company’s commercial blending containers. In 2010 the United States court system concluded that Vita-Mix had willfully infringed the patents, ultimately awarding Blendtec $24 million in damages.

Blendtec Designer Series Blender, WildSide Jar – Black

Blendtec is pleased to introduce the Designer Series blender. It has been engineered to bring a whole new level of beauty and functionality to the high-end blender category, without compromising the famous power and efficiency of our Total Blender Classic.

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.
That metal thing on your blender base that spins the blade? That’s a socket. Machined for a precision fit with the motor shaft, it efficiently transfers power to the blade. This steel-on-steel attachment results in lower vibration, reduced noise and increased reliability.
Many blenders avoid using ball bearings to drive down cost. Blendtec uses custom designed carbon-steel sealed ball bearings. This reduces friction, diminishes noise and increases the life of the motor.
Your Blendtec is engineered to keep itself cool. But in the unlikely event the motor does start to heat up too much, its computer brain will shut down the machine until it cools. Keeping it safe, sound and ready to blend your next masterpiece.
Certain ingredients blend better at slower speeds. A Blendtec blender carefully monitors and adjusts its power to deliver the speed you want. And if you manage to stop the blade, your Blendtec blender will shut down – protecting your valuable investment.
Blendtec’s ultra-hard stainless steel blades are cold-forged and tuned for heavy use. is 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.
Be assured that even a blender as powerful as a Blendtec blender is ETL certified, which means it meets national safety standards.
The digital display tells you just how long to wait until your blend is done. It also keeps track of your usage. As you reach 99…999…9,999 blend cycles and beyond, you’ll know that you chose the right blender!
Even the smallest parts in a Blendtec product have received big attention from our engineers.
The blender housing creates the most efficient, effective airflow possible.* Drawing cool air first through the electronics and then through the motor, the airflow design keeps things cool and extends the life of your blender.
A unique rubber foot* helps your blender stay put. It also prevents outgoing hot air from mixing with incoming cool air, further reducing operating temperature and increasing the life of your blender.
Every Blendtec jar features a square base that fits snugly over the square blending platform, creating a large stable base that prevents the jar from moving or rotating. All Blendtec consumer jars work perfectly with all Blendtec consumer blenders. Mix and match to your heart’s desire!
A capacitive touch control* slider makes your blender perform to your every whim. A single touch shifts the motor to the precise speed you want.
