A large family review of the Blentec Blender

Blendtec Blender Review $329

We got our Blendtec blender in 2012. Our two-year old son was recovering from heart surgery and was on a strict non-fat diet due to chylothorax. He has a feeding tube and we were looking for a blender sturdy enough to blend the food he needed. After a little research, we settled on the Blendtec Total Blender. Every day for several months we put a mixture of beans, grains, fruits and vegetables in here liquefying the concoction enough to be put through a narrow feeding tube. One our son was recovered we began using the blender for smoothies, crepes, bullet proof coffee and grinding grains.

Review of the Blendtec Blender

Blendtec Total Blender Specs:

  • 32 ounce blending jar
  • 2 prong stainless steel blade
  • Commercial grade motor
  • Includes recipe book (which we use and love!)


  • Sturdy. With a commercial grade motor and stainless steel blades, this blender is designed to last.
  • Large capacity. This blender comes with al 2 quart (32 ounce) jar, but a larger one can be purchased separately.
  • Warranty. 3 year motor base warranty and 1 year jar warranty. We did need to purchase a replacement jar a few months ago, but our first one lasted three years.


I honestly couldn’t think of a single complaint or item I would want to improve.


I am giving this Blendtec Blender a rating of 5 out of 5 stars: I love it and wish I could buy one for all my friends!
