Blendtec – the only Appliance that Replaces All the Others
Be good to yourself over the holidays, or persuade someone else to be good to you.
You need a Blendtec blender for Christmas, and there are lots of reasons why. The Blendtec is a wonderful, time-saving, super-efficient appliance. All the good stuff you hear about them is true, including what I said in the Organize-It product descriptions. In researching and writing about Blendtec, I totally sold myself on it. Yup, I bought myself an early holiday gift! Hey, when you’re a hard-working single person, why not? It’s not like anyone else offered to buy me one. 😉
Having used it for over a month now, you REALLY can replace most of your appliances with it, and I did. I packed up my food processors, stick blender and mechanical food choppers for eBay and Goodwill. Grandma’s mixer is packed while I contemplate it, but you can even do batter in a Blendtec, and, as a single person, my baking needs are limited.
I bought a red Classic-style blender and it has auto-functions for no-brainer mixing of smoothies (my most everyday food item), soup and more. The motor is so powerful you could probably power a tablesaw with it. I’m not exaggerating. This thing can chop practically anything. If you don’t believe me, check out Blendtec’s “Will it Blend?” series on YouTube. They blend a variety of food and non-food items (Coke/Chicken and Justin Bieber Blend are my two favorites).
Nut butters? No problem. Grind meat, chop vegetables, puree soup, and make ice cream with the greatest of ease. If you’ve ever been frustrated at your blender’s inability to chop ice, this appliance pulverizes it in seconds with it’s thick, durable steel blades, that are sure to outlive those flimsy other-brand ones. And yes, you can mix a variety of batters (research the techniques online) – especially with the large-capacity WildSide jar.
No matter which model you pick, regardless of the pre-programmed functions, you can still make all of your favorite foods using a variety of techniques, and the included manual has everything you need to get started. The higher the model number, the more speeds and pre-programmed features. I got the basic Classic 575 with the WildSide jar, and I absolutely love it. I can throw in smoothie ingredients, push a button, and walk away while the blender runs the smoothie program. I love how no-brainer it is, and when I make more complicated mixes, it has 5 incremental speed settings to suit the application, plus pulse.
I have a really busy life and only cook for myself. More and more I do healthy smoothies for quick meals as I have little spare time for food prep, plus I’m a bit of a super green food junkie. I did away with the juicer because of a. space in cupboards and b. fiber is good. Note that some models have a juicing program built right in. Of course, you will have to strain it if you don’t like the pulp.
When I do have time to cook, I LOVE cooking soups and stews. Squash soups are especially comforting in the winter months. My Blendtec came with a Wildside jar, which is large capacity (90 ounces) and made of heat-resistant plastic, which means you can puree soups while they’re still hot. How cool is that? As a bonus, it has measurements on the side in case you’re doing precise blending of multiple ingredients.
I’ve wanted a high-end blender for years but couldn’t decide on the best one. I am one of those obsessive review readers who has to research everything first. I read, I researched and I talked to people who have owned the other big brand, whose name I won’t mention because I’m too polite. Two big factors in my purchase were the warranty and the motor rating.
The Blendtec has the highest motor rating available in a consumer product (3 peak horse power and 1560 Watts), and it’s warranted for 8 years (and no, that isn’t a typo).

P.S. I was really naughty and bought myself an additional gift (January birthday) of a Twister jar using a holiday discount. It is JUST THE RIGHT SIZE for a single smoothie serving, and I can stow the bigger WildSide away until I need it for larger portion dishes. It comes with a special twisting lid that accelerates the processing of really hard stuff like nuts. Plus, it includes a bonus Spectacula spatula designed just for Blendtec twister jars (25 dollar value).
