I bought myself a new blender for Christmas, as a gift for myself, for the blog. Specifically, I had been eyeing a Blendtec blender for a REALLY long time. I heard numerous great things about it and I watched all the “Will It Blend?” videos (seriously, it demolished an iPhone into powder. So crazy!!). I really wanted it because the blender I previously had just wasn’t cutting it for me anymore. I needed a workhorse. Something that wouldn’t stop blending because something was too hard to blend – that was my biggest gripe with my other blender – I was blending CAULIFLOWER and the entire thing just stopped working because it didn’t have enough POWER.
No worries with the Blendtec. The power on it is INSANE and so is that blade!! Yes, it’s crazy loud, but I wouldn’t trade this blender in for any other blender. My Blendtec has a permanent spot on my counter top for easy access since I use it every morning for my morning kick-start smoothies :) It pulverizes all my smoothies and makes them come out with no chunks and I only have to blend it once. I don’t have to do it again ’cause some ingredients weren’t blended the first time. You can definitely tell after one use that ice (or anything for that matter) is no match for this blender! I also love that cleanup is SUPER easy in this. I put a little dish soap in the container with some water and press a button (any of the buttons, really) and the blending power cleans your jar for you. Gotta love a powerful blender that practically cleans itself ;)
Blendtec recently came out with a Twister Jar and it’s AWESOME for the thickest recipes. Making nut butters (you know us food bloggers love our almond butter), hummus, dips, thick shakes is easy peasy with this jar. The design of this jar is very clever. The twisting motion of the lid forces the ingredients from the sides of the jar back into the blade, achieving a perfect blend every time!
