Do Not Buy the Blendtec Until You Read the Facts About It

Have you tried the Blendtec? I can’t even explain to you the frustration I feel when discussing my experience with blenders.

I’ve been through many blenders myself, and each and every one of them has disappointed me in one way or another. I’m sure there are many people out there who can relate to this frustration.


I’ve had blenders that didn’t crush ice (or any of the other items I was trying to chop). I’ve also had blenders that pulverized everything I was trying to chop into a foam. Then there are the blenders that are virtually impossible to clean. Some are too large, some are too small, some are too cheap and fall apart, while others are too expensive.

I had just about quit my search for the perfect blender when I found the Blendtec.

For someone who makes shakes and smoothies several days per week, I depend on my blender and I had come to the conclusion that I needed to invest in a high quality blender like the Blendtec. No matter what you want to blend, you’ll get an even consistency without chunks of food or ice. While the Blendtec is great for making smoothies and shakes, it can do a number of other amazing things as well.

The Blendtec allows you to make soups, juices, and even yogurt simply and easily. The blender comes with a recipe book over two hundred pages long to help you explore all of the various things you can do with your new blender.

Blendtec’s Features

The blender has some incredible features, primarily, the programmed functions. This high tech blender doesn’t come with old fashioned buttons or dials, everything is electronic and programmed for you already. There is a smoothie button (my favorite), a juice button (fantastic for juicing), as well as one specifically for ice cream or yogurt. No need to have a juicer, a blender, and an ice cream maker cluttering up your counter! Instead, invest in one high quality appliance that can get the job done.

The Blendtec is low profile and fits under your counter unlike other high powered blenders.

Another incredible feature is that you don’t have to stop and start the blender to check on your progress. Instead, you can relax because the blender will stop itself when it is done. How simple is that? No need to worry about a lumpy smoothie or one that has been over blended. The Blendtec takes care of knowing when it should stop.

If you prefer, you can blend your food manually using the various speed buttons (ten of which are available) or the pulse feature. The blender has an LCD screen which shows how long your food has been blending or how long is left in the blending cycle you have chosen. It also has a feature that keeps track of how many times you’ve used the blender.

Other Blendtec Benefits

The Blendtec has a high horsepower motor that functions at up to 29,000 rpm’s with over 1500 watts to make it one of the highest commercial grade motors available on a blender. Because the blender is so strong, it allows you to get the maximum possible nutrition from your food. The nutritional benefits of vegetables like kale and spinach aren’t always broken down by a normal blender in the way that they are with the Blendtec. This blender is able to break through the walls of the cells to make sure you get every bit of nutrition from your food.

The blender also comes with a BPA plastic, large, square blender jar that holds up to two quarts, which comes with a tight lid. The jar is light and very easy to pour, and the design allows things to blend evenly.

The Blendtec also comes with a lifetime warranty on its blade, so if it ever gets dull, it will be replaced. It has a three year warranty on the motor and a one year warranty on the jar. You can buy replacement jars, and even larger jar options from their website.

As we previously mentioned, the Blendtec comes with a recipe book absolutely free! When you see the incredible recipes included, you will understand the value of this additional freebie. It even comes with a DVD with sixteen video recipes along with the regular recipe book and the products owner’s manual.

There are only a few downsides to this product, first of which is the price, which can seem pretty high upon initially considering the product. It runs about $400 for the Classic model, and closer to $500 for the Designer model. This may SEEM like a high price, but as I mentioned at the start, if you’re used to disappointing results or replacing your blenders constantly, you can count on this product to last you for many years with solid results.

Also, if you are considering investing in a variety of lower quality products like choppers, food processors, blenders, and ice cream makers, you’ll probably spend much more (and waste a lot more of your counter space) instead of buying this one, high quality product that will last you many years.

Another downside to the Blendtec is that some people complain that it is too loud. Really, it is about as loud as any other blender I’ve heard, but because it is so powerful it might be louder than some of the less powerful versions out there.

Lastly, the Blendtec does not come with a tamper to move the food around while in the container, which some of its competitors do. If something gets stuck in the blender, you’ll have to use a utensil or shake the container to dislodge it.

Overall, the Blendtec is like a different appliance in comparison to many of the other blender options out there. It makes spending time in the kitchen much easier and more enjoyable, and is well worth the additional expense.

    I know, right?? I was beginning to think I was going to have to spend over $500 for a blender that would do what I needed. Never heard of Blendtec until now. Thanks for the tip.

  2. Peter Parker says:

    Not yet tried blendtec, but will definitely give it a try after going through it. Badly want to replace my old blender with the new one and want a blendtec after going through this article. Just keeping my finger crossed to make this deal a profitable one.

  3. Kara Cook says:

    I bought a blendtec a few months ago and it is like any other blender. I cannot see any difference among a blendtec or any other of its competitor brands. I am satisfied with its performance and also hope that it will last for a longer stretch this time. I have no issues regarding its performance till now and hoping for the stable performance in the future too.

  4. I actually saw the blendtec in action today at costco, so it’s a little funny to see the video up there :D It looked great and the motor didn’t struggle through anything, but really the key to a good blender is its longevity. It doesn’t matter how well it blends if it breaks down in a few weeks. I’m probably going to try the high end model for 500 bucks, so this better be good or I”d be wasting money I could spend on a nice new pc monitor.

  5. I have a highend blender that cost me a whopping $80 bucks and let me just tell you, it isn’t worth the price at all. I’m actually interested in trying this blender, it looks impressive and the video made it even more believable.

  6. I’ve tried middle of the pack blenders and I’ve tried high end blenders, they were all disappointing and none of them lasted more than a year. I know that some people might say, “Weren’t you abusing the blenders a little too much?”, but not really. I use blenders every day, but if that’s too much of a burden on today’s blenders, then they’re certainly not worth the money they charge. I’m willing to give blendtec a try because of all the rave reviews, but I won’t keep my hopes up. I’ve been disappointed one too many times.

  7. This is an amazing post. I am planning to buy a new blender but was really confused what to buy, but after reading this post, I will definitely go for a Blendtec. The best thing to find out is that unlike other blenders it’s easy to clean and I don’t mind spending some extra money after this amazing feature.

  8. I love my Blendtec, it’s saved me so much money. I actually no longer have to spend about $30+ at Jumba Juice anymore because of my Bledtec. I can have a healthy smoothie whenever I choose at the fraction of the price.
