Absolutely floored to have been given the opportunity to review a Designer Series Blendtec Blender + Twister jar for you all! I’ve used this thing religiously over the past two weeks to test out every feature/function available. So let’s get started!

I was incredibly impressed with how sleek and modern this unit is. Typical blenders have so many knobs, nooks and cranies so they’re a nightmare to clean after each use. But this model is completely flat, offering a touch screen sensor so no buttons to dirty up and it looks phenomenal sitting out on your kitchen counter!
I also loved the fact the WildSide jar does all the work for you. You don’t need to constantly stop and scrape it down. Adding the fifth side creates a vortex that increases its blending efficiency and yields a smoother result. It’s basically the best thing ever, aside from the Twist jar – my newest love!
The Twister jar is for those of us that truly want to make the most out of this blender and its blending capabilities. All the cashew based bites and batters I’ve shared, were made using this jar. It’s absolutely a dream for nut butters or really thick recipes, like banana ice cream. You just put the Twister lid on top, spin counter-clockwise and it forces everything from the sides down. It even comes with a specially made spatula that fits the jar so perfectly, you can get every last bit out! I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to blend something and the last 15% won’t budge from the bottom sides – drives me mad! But you don’t even have to stress anymore!
The unit has 6 preset blending cycles; batters, ice crush, smoothie, ice cream, whole juice and soups. Each one uniquely different and does it’s intended job perfectly every time, for the correct amount of time. Safe to say I used “smoothie” and “ice cream” daily… but if you’d like to manually control the speed, you can. The innovative touch slider’s censor gives you every bit of control you need!
All in all I’m very pleased with my Blendtec blender. It’s simple to use, straight-forward and extremely powerful. I use it for making the smoothest smoothies, nut butters and pancake batters! So if you’re in the market for a single device with multi-purposes (blending, pulsing, chopping, juicing, grinding, mixing) then I’d highly recommend making the investment. If you’re in the kitchen as much as I am, it’ll pay itself off over and over again!1
