The Total Blender – Where Blendtec’s High-Powered Blending Dominance Began

Blendtec Classic Review - A Comparison Tom Dickson is the prolific inventor behind Blendtec. Striving to help people improve their health and lead much more fulfilling lives, he developed one of the world’s most incredibly powerful, most technologically-advanced blenders—which he aptly named The Blendtec Total Blender!

And with his brilliance extending into marketing as well, Tom sold this impressive machine to the world with his wildly entertaining and highly successful “Will It Blend?” YouTube videos, which in the early days featured The Blendtec Total Blender Classic pulverizing everything from pool cues, rake handles, baseballs, golf balls and hockey pucks to marbles, magnets, lightbulbs, glowsticks and more—turning ‘em all into dust!

Best Meal Planning App

These unique videos rapidly went viral and took the high-powered blending world by storm. The Blendtec Total Blender gained so much popularity in such a short amount of time that it was even featured on Ellen, the View, WGN and the BBC—totally decimating everything tossed into its jar; wowing audiences all around the world… This successful marketing campaign continues to this day, and now features several of Blendtec’s latest models destroying basically anything you can imagine!

Now largely considered the best blender for smoothies, people everywhere use these innovative machines in their homes, and it really all started with The Total Blender Classic—which is where Blendtec’s high-powered blending dominance began! Now for this Blendtec Classic Review let’s meet the Classic Series…

Blendtec Total Blender – The First Classic Series Model

The Blendtec Total Blender brought commercial power to the home kitchen blender. It is The First Classic Series Model and is Incredibly Powerful, Feature Rich, and totally Easy to Clean! With its Traditional DesignPush-Button Interface and an LCD Screen, The Total Blender Classic showcases all of the innovation that made Blendtec so popular.

It’s also the model Blender Babes recommends most, still uses in our test kitchens, and in many of our videos!

Today the Blentec Classic Series has been expanded and contains several new prototypes of The Total Blender, which is what Blender Babes is gettin’ to the heart of today.

I’ll be introducing you to the Blendtec Classic 560, Classic 570 & Classic 575, totally explaining all their features and benefits—as well as seeing how they ultimately measure up to the Original (and why it’s STILL THE BEST!)

Blendtec Total Blender Classic – The Original, the Iconic… & The Best Deal in the Classic Series!

The Total Blender ClassicBlendtec Total Blender Classic has always been the cornerstone, the linchpin, the flagship model—The One & Only­­… It IS the ORIGINAL MODEL that fueled the fire which blasted Blendtec into the high-powered blending stratosphere… And today it is known as the Blendtec Total Blender Classic.

This iconic blending powerhouse of a machine is Currently Priced at just $279.95 with the WildSide+ Jar —making it The Most Affordable model Blendtec offers. Performance-wise it has No Equal in its Price Range, and to this day the Total Blender Classic is still loaded with the MOST Features of all current Classic models—which makes it the Best Deal in the Classic Series… As well as arguably Blendtec’s Best Overall Bargain too)!

Buying the Blendtec Total Blender Classic (the clock is ticking!)

The Total Blender Classic is currently only available as a Certified Refurbished model, with the vast majority of ‘em coming primarily from retail product demonstration models and customer impulse buy returns.

Note: Every Blendtec refurbished comes in LIKE NEW CONDITION with new jar, lid, recipe book, and owners manual. You really can’t tell the difference!

Blendtec puts these dependable blenders through a rigorous inspection process of incredibly high standards. Each and every machine that becomes a Certified Refurbished Blendtec features a Comprehensive 3-Year Warranty, virtually guaranteeing that this phenomenal kitchen tool will be with you every step of the way on your new health journey for many years come!

But given the fact that this Iconic Tried-&-True Model is no longer being produced brand-new, Blendtec will eventually RUN OUT of  the Total Blender Classic… So for those wanting to own a Blendtec for the BEST POSSIBLE PRICE OF $279 (with payment plan options!), time is of the essence!

Blendtec Classic 570 – A Costco Exclusive Model 

Blendtec Classic Comparison Review - Classic 560 vs 570 vs 575 vs Total Blender Classic Original by @BlenderBabesThe Blendtec Classic 570 is similar to the other Classic models.

Here are the differences in a nutshell. It’s the lowest level model Blendtec makes with the fewest features (now that the 560 is discontinued).

It has 2 pre-programmed settings: SMOOTHIE and HOT and 3 manual speeds (low, medium and high).

It has the same body style as the Classic 575 but NOT the color options or as many automatic settings or manual speeds.

IMPORTANT CLASSIC 570 NOTE: The Classic 570 can only be purchased AT COSTCO . For less money and way more features, I recommend the Total Blender Classic Blendtec Refurbished OR the refurbished Blendtec Classic 575.

Blendtec Classic 570 Features:

  • 3-Peak Horsepower 1,570-Watt Motor – This commercial-grade motor gives you all the raw thunderous power you’ll need to create any recipe you want!
  • 2 Preprogrammed CyclesSmoothie & Hot­­— the two One-Touch pre-programmed buttons (smoothie & soup).
  • 3 Manual Speeds, Pulse Control & STOP– The Classic 570 utilizes Low, Medium & High speeds with bursts of high-powered pulsing capability. Note: The Blendtec recipe books were made for lots of pre-programmed settings like the Original Total Blender Classic and all Designer models have.
  • Wildside+ Jar w/Vented Gripper Lid – Only available with the Wildside+ Jar.
  • Blendtec Classic Comparison Review - Classic 560 vs 570 vs 575 vs Total Blender Classic Original by @BlenderBabesCommercial Quality Construction w/Molded Plastic Finish Available in Black & Red – IMPORTANT COSTCO COLOR CHOICE NOTE: You can buy the Blendtech 570 in Black or Red when purchasing it directly from a Costco location, depending on what they have available.
  • Blendtec Classic 570 Motor Base, Smart-Touch Interface & Illuminated LCD Timer – Same design as the Classic 575.
  • 7” Wide x 15” Tall x 8” Deep w/Total Weight of 7.28 lbs. – Same size as other Classics
  • Durable Metal Drive Socket & Blunt Safety Blade – Same as all Blendtec models.
  • Comprehensive 8-Year Warranty on Everything in the Box – Like all new Blendtec blenders.

Blendtec Classic 560 – THIS BLENDER HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED

Blendtec Classic Comparison Review - Classic 560 vs 570 vs 575 vs Total Blender Classic Original by @BlenderBabesBlendtec’s Classic 560 has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.

The Blendtec Classic 560 had the fewest features available on any Blendtec.

Blendtec Classic 560 Features:

  • Blendtec Classic Comparison Review - Classic 560 vs 570 vs 575 vs Total Blender Classic Original by @BlenderBabes4 Manual Speeds, Pulse Control & STOPLow, Medium-Low, Medium-High & High along with pulse and stop button.

In order to use the Blendtec recipe books, which were made for lots of pre-programmed settings like the Original Total Blender Classic and all Designer models have, it is a bit more difficult to make certain recipes.

  1. blendtec remorse

    I feel like I wasted my money buying a blendtec blender. I had all kinds of problems with the blender and their blender jars. They are very expensive and you expect to get what you paid for but with my blendtec I feel like I did nothing but throw away allot of money.

    1. Blender Babes

      I’m sorry to hear you had issues with your Blendtec! Sounds like you maybe had a lemon. I hope you were able to return your blender and get something you like better! Thanks for sharing your feedback. ~Tarashaun

  2. hi.i want a blender that isnt really digital or automatic.i want ot make ice cream butters etc and mostly grind grains.what do you suggest?vitamix or blendtec?blendtec i see when it grinds it gets foggy and vitamix needs the tamper.also in both i need to get a dry blade or fourside jar so second jar is a must i guess but i am confused with the models…we are family of 2 so i dont need large quantities…36 or 48oz is good i guess.but all these models…..any help which will perform better for superfine flour,smoothies and so on?

    1. Blender Babes

      Hi Misty! For both blenders, when grinding grains it will pit the jar and make it cloudy, however Blendtec jars can blend hot, wet, cold and dry goods all in the same jar with the same blade (no separate jar/blade is needed), so you can use the wildside jar that it comes with. The wildside jar is perfect for a family of 2, you do not need to fill it to the top but you have the option to make more as needed. Both perform very well and considered the best blenders for smoothies, as well as being able to make superfine flour. The Vitamix does offer a special dry goods jar with a different blade – but it’s an expensive additional cost that might be not be necessary unless you plan to grind grains a lot. You can learn more about this dry grinding comparison here. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any further questions!
