Blendtec Designer Series Review – A Comparison of ALL Designer Models

Blendtec Tom Dickson Blender Babes IHA ShowBefore we get into this Blendtec Designer Series Review I want to share a bit about its awesome creator!

Tom Dickson is an engineer by trade and inventor by design. His incredibly inquisitive nature compelled him to develop the world’s most advanced blender, and in 1975 he founded Blendtec—all in the hopes of helping people improve their health.

In 2006 Tom launched the “Will It Blend?” marketing campaign, which featured his technologically advanced kitchen blenders (primarily the Blendtec Total Blender Classic) pulverizing iPhones, rake handles, marbles, lightbulbs, glowsticks, hockey pucks and more into dust.

Best Meal Planning App

These unique videos quickly went viral, generating millions of YouTube views (literally!), which increased Blendtec’s awareness and sales dramatically. Today people all around the world use his innovative, impressively dependable blenders in their homes, smoothie shops and restaurants.


Due to increasing popularity and customer feedback, Tom Dickson and his innovative design team created their finest, incredibly engineered achievements – The Blendtec Designer Series. 

Blendtec Designer Series Was Born

Blending Raspberry, Blackberry & Other Berry Seeds ~ Blendtec vs Vitamix vs Ninja by @BlenderBabesBlendtec customers wanted their blenders to be the ultimate personification of their new healthier lifestyles, while also being an extension of themselves. This meant not only being able to use these powerful machines everyday no matter how involved the recipe, but also being able to proudly display them on their kitchen counters.

And though the Blendtec Classic Total Blender satisfied this need (it’s always had plenty of power and been able to fit underneath kitchen cabinets)…

The first in the Blendtec Designer Series was created to be a far more stylishly engineered appliance.

These beautiful blenders easily become the focal point of any kitchen. Their sleek design and touchscreen display is more compelling, more eye-catching than the Blendtec Classic models, and people just like looking at them… Which does inspire their more frequent use!

Blendtec Designer Review: Interface  

Blendtec Designer Series TouchscreenThe Blendtec Designer Series interface maintains the digital function Blendtec pioneered —but in a much more high tech fashion.

The new controls are touchscreen! Having a capacitive touch means they react to electrical impulses generated by your finger (just like a smartphone does!).

Intuitive icons representing various pre-programmed blend cycles replaced the push buttons (note: the number of pre-programmed settings varies by model), and a sleek-designed slider control was also added for manual blending speeds – which could be controlled, at any time, with a simple slide of the finger.

These innovative controls are all backlit and disappear completely when not in use, creating a futuristic control panel that is totally flat, and incredibly Easy to Clean!

Blendtec Designer Review: Additional Innovations

The Blendtec Designer Series, the original and all newer Designer models are quieter, and also features far more control of the motor, and improved airflow for better cooling—which has the added benefit of giving your high-powered blender an even LONGER LIFE.  Depending on the newer model, there’s also additional color options and surface finishes, allowing you to match the perfect blender to your particular taste and/or kitchen’s décor. See more below.

Blendtec Brand-New 8-Year Warranty & Blender Jar Compatibility

Blendtec Designer Series Comparison Review: Designer 725 vs 675 vs 625 vs Original by @BlenderBabesBlendtec even sweetened the deal by adding a year onto its warranty, which is now a standard 8-Year Warranty­ on all Blendtec models (3 years on certified reconditioned) —giving you added protection and peace of mind.

Blendtec Designer Review: Summation

In essence, the Blendtec Designer Series was created to revolutionize the entire home kitchen blending experience.

Transforming one’s healthy living routine from an exhausting production to a tranquil, energizing and therapeutic respite from life’s daily stresses, this dynamically versatile line of blenders streamlines everything about how nutritious meals are made!

These intuitive blenders are basically like Swiss Army Knives—simplifying the whole process of preparing healthy food by Completely Eliminating the need for other cumbersome appliances (most of which, as we all know too well, just end up consuming valuable kitchen cabinet real estate!).

So without further ado, let’s meet Tom Dickson’s REVOLUTIONARY…

Blendtec Designer 725 – the World’s Smartest Blender

Blendtec Designer Series Comparison Review: Designer 725 vs 675 vs 625 vs Original by @BlenderBabes

Cost: $679.95 – see the less expensive refurbished Blendtec Designer 725 for $549

Although there is the significant cost to consider, this top of the line Designer Blendtec blender will help you and your family maintain your health well into the foreseeable future.

The Blendtec Designer 725 it’s most technologically advanced blender.

It features a 1,725 Watt, 3.8 Peak Horsepower Motor, which is THE MOST POWERFUL of the Blendtec Designer Series line (and all the power you’ll ever really need!).

Weighing in at 10.7 lbs., the Blendtec Designer 725 is also heavier than the Classic models—the ones that if were filled to the brim with frozen ingredients atop an uneven surface like a tiled kitchen, could “bounce” or “travel” along your countertop during a blend (not a huge deal, just hold it down until it gets going!). The heavier weight of the Blendtec 725, solves this issue once and for all!

With its array of cutting-edge new features, all of which provide the ultimate interactive blending experience, the Blendtec Designer 725 is hands-down Blendtec’s finest home kitchen model

Additional Blendtec Designer 725 Features Include: 

  • Blendtec Designer Series Comparison Review: Designer 725 vs 675 vs 625 vs Original by @BlenderBabesSmartBlend Technology – This top of the line advanced blender features Blendtec’s exclusive SmartBlend technology, which both senses and identifies potential problems that could interfere with the blend—including loading errors, overheating or air pockets—then tells you how to fix them (literally, the Blendtec Designer 725 tells you what to do!).
  • 6 Preprogrammed Cycles – From left to right, illuminated icons for Smoothie, Salsa, Ice Cream, Whole Juice, Hot Soup & (the newest!) CLEAN cycle — easily handling every last blending recipe you can imagine! When using the cycles you will see in the interface which cycle you are using and it will countdown.
  • 100-Speed Capacitive Touch Slider + Multi-Speed Pulse – Capacitive Touch Slider offers seamless precision speed control for ONE HUNDRED (that’s right, I said 100!) SPEEDS. You can gently move your finger to get to your EXACT desired speed, plus it helps you get the perfect blend by telling you which speed to use for stirring, chopping, mixing, blending or pureeing. There’s also a unique Multi-Speed Pulse giving you added BURSTS of POWER at any speed!
  • Tap For More “Add 10” Feature – Allows you to completely customize your blend by adding more time in 10-second intervals to Preprogrammed Cycles. THIS IS AMAZING AND MY FAVORITE NEW FEATURE! The small “issue” of blending again to an automatic cycle that needed a little more time is obliterated.
  • Blend Rewards – The Blendtec Designer 725 tracks each number of blends you complete, and once certain blending milestones have been reached, the interface displays a code, which you can redeem for recipe books, gift cards, jar discounts, kitchen utensils and more! How cool and totally motivating is that!!!
  • Two Colors with a Die-Cast Finish to Choose from – Stainless Steel and Gun Metal.

Blendtec Designer Series Comparison Review: Designer 725 vs 675 vs 625 vs Original by @BlenderBabes



Please Note: We go into Blendtec performance details from our testing in our popular Blendtec vs Vitamix review

When it comes to blending, ALL of these Designer models can achieve the same results – they just may require different buttons and/or time blended.

Whether it’s smoothies, whole juices, soups, frozen treats, salsas, batters or even cleaning – it’s important to note THEY CAN ALL DO ALL THE THINGS!


I LOVE the new features the newer designer models have – Especially the “Add 10” that the Designer 725 and 675 have. However, if a blend needs more time, just use your manual keys and continue to blend until it reaches a consistency you like. NO BIG DEAL.

Yes, I LOVE the 100 speed touch slider the Designer 725 has, it’s definitely more precise blending. If you are a blending aficionado and want the BEST, you will NOT be disappointed!

If you ultimately plan to mostly make smoothies, juices and soups and ice creams and want to save some $$ – I’m a huge fan of the colors, features  and price of the certified refurbished Blendtec Designer 625.

P.S. I recommend the Twister Jar for ALL of these blenders – if nut butters, ice creams, and smaller amounts are your thing. Check out our Twister Jar Review.

Well that pretty much sums the various differences between the each individual Designer Series Model, as well as how they’ve evolved from Tom Dickson’s original Total Blender.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know in the Comments Section Below 🙂

And as always, Happy Blending!

  1. Oh by the way, I also was looking for lighter rather heavy body of the blender and with the ninja, I have a green mold in the handle growing and hard area to reach to clean underneath the spinner.
    I just had this about a year now.

    1. Blender Babes

      Hi again! Yeah that could be a health hazard! The ninja blades are really sharp and I’ve personally cut myself several times on them and find them scary to clean… Blendtec is the safest blender I have ever used, due to the blunt single blade being extremely easy to clean around. Most Blendtec models are lighter than Vitamix models. Hope that helps! 🙂 ~Tarashaun

  2. Hi, Im still having hard time deciding which blender I want to purchase. Its been two weeks now and still undecided. I go through blender do to the blade being worn out from making protien shakes .
    I have upgrade to ninja and its a piece of crap the blade is not doing its job. I have to blend them a lot longer and its noisy as heck. Please help me to decide blentec or vitamix.. I had blentec in my mind until vitamin seem to be the going thing . Now im lost to which one ??

    1. Blender Babes

      Hi Jacky! Don’t worry, this is a very common thing. It’s a tough decision! Have you checked out our Blendtec vs Vitamix Review? It compares each blender type down to performance. If noise is a serious issue, I would recommend the Blendtec Pro 800 due to the sound enclosure. It’s not cheap, but they also have a less expensive refurbished Blendtec Pro 800. The Blendtec blade is 10x stronger than typical blenders and about 5x stronger than Vitamix blades. It can handle whatever you toss in there, literally 😉 That said, some people have had issues with Blendtec jars (usually the gasket) wearing out faster than Vitamix jars. Something to keep in mind. If you have other specific questions please feel free to ask! ~ Tarashaun

  3. When the article states that it tells you what speed for each type of blend (Chop, puree, stir, etc). Is this part of the smart blend technology where it communicates to you as performing or is this listed somewhere in the reading materials included with package?

    1. Hey Todd,

      The Designer 725 actually says on the display panel as you slide your finger along the 100 manual speeds what you are doing (i.e. puree, stir, etc.). It’s still “smart” but it’s not the pre-programmed settings.

      The other Designer series blenders do not do this on the manual speed slider, since it’s much fewer speeds and not as precise.
      Hope that helps! HAPPY BLENDING! ~Tarashaun
