Blendtec has positioned itself as a leader in the high-powered, high-performance blender market. The award-winning Blendtec product line features both commercial and residential blenders.
Among its unique features are the flat-sided jar design, a metal drive socket in place of plastic, and blunt steel blades. Although the blender is missing the sharp blades familiar in typical blenders, the Blendtec still gets the job done by spinning at very high speeds.
Many consumers will be familiar with the Blendtec blender from the company’s popular “Will It Blend” series of videos, featuring the product's ability to effectively blend products such as iPads, marbles, and even hockey pucks.
Blendtec offers three product lines, each at a different price point:
Replacement jars and lids are available online, as well as accessories such as travel bottles, juice bags, and specialized spatulas. The company also sells a product line of dehydrated fruit and vegetable powders that can add flavor and nutritional value to anything you make in your blender.
Certified refurbished blenders come with a reassuring three-year warranty. These blenders are about $100 less than their full-price counterparts. This option may be appealing to customers who want the high performance of a Blendtec blender, but feel deterred by the high cost.
Blendtec is based in Orem, Utah and proudly commits to designing and assembling all its blenders in the United States. The company has donated its products to the following charitable organizations:
If you are unhappy with your Blendtec purchase, you have 30 days from delivery to return the blender for a full refund, minus shipping charges. Be aware that returns must first be approved by a customer service representative.
Blendtec products are priced similarly to comparable blenders. For example, its Designer 675 model is priced at $499.95 compared to the Vitamix 5200 model priced $449.95. Both of these brands, however, come with a higher price tag than products from KitchenAid or Ninja.
Customer reviews reveal that many customers feel the performance benefits and product longevity are worth the higher price of a Blendtec product.
Before you purchase a Blendtec blender, you’ll want to verify the warranty included. Some products offer a two-year while some come with an eight-year warranty. The Blendtec website includes no specific warranty information on the product page for some products.
We recommend you verify all warranty information before purchasing a blender by calling the company’s Customer Service department.
Some customers have reported that they are dissatisfied with how noisy operating a Blentec blender can be. The powerful blending speed creates sounds that could potentially wake up a sleeping household member or disturb neighbors on the other side of thin apartment walls.

The reviews on Blendtec’s website are all accompanied by a graphic of five stars, even if the content of the review is negative.
