BLENDTEC TWISTER JAR REVIEW
Psst! Blendtec has a brand new innovation, which has improved on an already awesome home appliance. It’s called the TWISTER jar, designed to more quickly blend your very thickest jobs and cut down your prep time. This gadget is one tough cookie, and we are happy to review and compare it to the Blendtec standard jars as well as the Vitamix blender! ♥
Now you don’t have to leave out fresh homemade nut butters from your favorite recipes, or buy expensive options from your favorite health food store. Almonds? Peanut? Cashew? It’s all good and twisted into butter in seconds, not minutes. Frozen banana ice cream? Drop it right in!
The Twister jar can handle dense or frozen materials, no problem. Blender Babes thinks it’s the coolest gadget EVER!!! NOTE: Blender Babes recommends the Blendtec Standard Twister Jar over the Mini Twister Jar. It just makes more. The mini is tiny and if you’re spending the money to get the twister jar, we promise you’ll be happier with the bigger one!
BLENDTEC TWISTER JAR REVIEW – SMALL PORTIONS
You can whip up smaller portions of your thickest smoothies and ice creams, and you won’t have any cavitation, or need to stop your Blendtec blender and scrape ingredients towards to middle and repeat until blended. To use the jar, you just add ingredients and twist the lid counter-clockwise. Do it while the blend cycle is running. It works with the twisting motion, the tines of the lid forces the ingredients from the sides of the jar back into the blade (It’s sort of like a washing machine) cutting blending time down so much your “tougher” jobs are complete in seconds. And we say “toughter” because it’s really not hard to make a nut butter in 3 or 4 minutes, but when you can make it in 30 seconds or less… well, why wouldn’t we? 🙂
BLENDTEC TWISTER JAR REVIEW – RECIPE TESTING
We’ve tried all kinds of recipes with the Twister jar which blends between 6oz and 16oz. Single serving salad dressing full of fresh vegetables like Kimberly Snyder‘s Beauty Detox oil free red pepper and cilantro dressing, and homemade sauces. Delicious Mediterranean and heart healthy hummus by Dr. Fuhrman, and, yes, even baby foods with frozen fruits. They are all a breeze to make. And a snap to clean up. One of our favorites, a date shakes so thick a spoon would stand up in it, was no problem at all for the Twister jar.

While I love the performance of the twister jar, the design and workmanship of the rubber gasket is poor. I have stopped using the jar for nut butters as each time large amounts of liquified rubber from the gasket collect around the metal connecting post and around the bottom sides of the jar.
Because my wife and I use the jar daily for our morning cacao milk/coffee replacement I am afraid of the blades seizing up as MANY other users have complained about. In fact the rubber gaskets for all Blendtec jars are poorly designed and frequently fail after a couple of years of high usage. I use the Alterna Jar replacement jars because the have removable/replaceable blades.
I love my Blendtec but hate the durability of the jar systems.
Hey there, thanks for your review.
Can anyone tell me if the twister jar works with vitamix blenders? If yes, does it make sense?
Hey Sam! Great question. No the Twister Jar does NOT work with Vitamix blenders. It can be used on any Blendtec Jar. The Vitamix jars come with a tamper, which will push the ingredients into the blades similarly to the way the lid and tines do on the Twister Jar so it’s not necessary for Vitamix models. Hope that helps answer your question! 🙂
Hey Vanessa – we understand your position. When the concept first began, I just wanted to make boring recipe videos fun and entertaining 😉 We DO have our first male Babe wearing swim trunks! We are moving to ActiveWear – but bathing suits will always have a close place in my heart! 🙂
I am kind of wondering why this comparison needs to be done by girls in underwear. If you were dressed nicely you wouldn't be any less gorgeous. It is a step back for feminism. If these were three guys, would they be in speedos?
something about telling women to hide their dirty shameful bodies doesn’t sound very much like an advancement for feminism to me.
