Want a top-of-the-line blender without the sticker shock?
Easy cycles make blending a breeze: all you need to do is press a button to get the exact result you’re after. For the classic model in particular, you can choose from six pre-programmed cycles and 10 speeds for smoothies, dips, sauces and more.
Craving a creamy soup? Make it in the blender! The powerful blades can create enough friction to heat up all the veggies you’re emulsifying all at once. Just tap the soup button, and your next bowl of cream of mushroom goodness is just six minutes away (or less).
Customers adore how easy to use and clean the blender is!
“Bottom line: This appliance is amazing and I don't think I could ever live without it now that I have one” says one five-star reviewer. “I'm generally frugal with my money, so at first I balked at the idea of a blender that costs several hundred dollars; however, this product is in a league of it's own which is why I refer to it as an appliance and not just a blender.”
When it comes to competing with other big name blenders, Blendtec customers say this model goes above and beyond their expectations.
Another five-star reviewer wrote: “I've had my eye on getting a nice blender, and I went with Blendtec over Vitamix. Everyone will have their preference, but I went with Blendtec because I've seen how durable they are. I worked at Starbucks for almost 12 years, and not once did I see a Blendtec go out. We abused those things so badly: throwing pitchers in the sink, slamming the blades on the rinser, seeing liquid creep into the motor housing. The pitcher style pours so easily, the base is short enough to fit under my cabinets, and everything blends so smoothly.”
