    Simply the best blender jar. Review by

    I've owned many blenders of all price points... and when it comes to a fully functional kitchen utensil that performs, and lasts repeated uses this is as close to a perfect product as you will find.

    source blendtec.com (Posted on 5/19/17)



    We purchased this item as a replacement was necessary for our BlendTec. It is used 2-3 times a day and we have had this item for years only needing to replace it because of a leaking problem. However, it appears that the jar has been improved with a leak-free feature. We are very pleased with this product.

    years of use Review by

    This is the third top I have bought for the same blender. The first I broke and the second I wore out. The other two were the same type that came with the blender. I thought after reading the features of this one I would try it. It takes longer to blend small amounts of frozen fruit and shakes way more than the small one. It also seems louder. I will go back to the original next time.

    Quality blades, great size, band gasket Review by

    I've had a total of three WildSide jars over the course of about 7 years. The rubber gasket on each one has blended into the drink after a certain amount of usage. I love the blender, and the jar is amazing with the exception of this massive flaw. However, given how many other people have had this except problem, I'm disappointed that they haven't fixed it.

    New lid design is GREAT! Review by

    This is my second Wild Side jar and I REALLY appreciate the new design of the lid. This design is easy to seal, much easier to remove, AND much easier to clean. THANK YOU! I didn't realize how much I struggled with the lid on my 4-year old wild side jar until I used my new jar for the first time.

    Great product, great customer service Review by

    I love my Designer 725 with the Wildside+ Jar. I just received the new upgraded version of the Wildside+ through the blender rewards program but the first one I received was defective (had a bad vibration from a manufacturing issue), but I recorded a video of the jar vibrating and emailed it to customer service and they immediately sent out another. This one is fine and I'm extremely happy with the upgraded lid. #Blendtec rules.

    Extremely durable Review by

    I bought my blender 3 1/2 years ago and am hard on it. Once a week I spend 6 hours in the kitchen making blends for my feeding tube. I blend on speed 8. It has taken 3 1/2 years for my 4 sided jar to wear out!

    love it, Review by

    my old blendtec jar wore out at the base grommet after 10 plus years which is surprising in it self. I used it couple of times a week and had some pretty brutal use with the ice and hard veggies I put in it. Noticing the blade wiggling when I cleaned it. ordered the new wildside + jar and love it better than the old style. Thanks very much

    I bought my Blendtec in 2012. I used it regularly and never had a problem until recently when the seal around the grinder cracked.

    Great blender. Jars are garbage. HORRIBLE. Review by

    I have been through 1 or 2 Jars every year I have had my blender. The bearing on the bottom that the blade spins on goes bad. We are using blender at least once a day. Not well built.

    Great Blender with poor quality jars Review by

    Blendtec must use the cheapest bearing available for their jars. I have 8 Jars at my smoothie business and 2 jars at home and every single jar I own wild side and square all either have wobbly shafts, Bearings that won't turn without excessive force or they leak and make a ton of noise.

    source blendtec.com (Posted on 8/24/16)


    Great customer service Review by

    I emailed Blendtec because my gasket burned up on my blender jar and I only have 129 blends. It took about 3 weeks for them to respond so I figured they were going to ignore it and almost paid to buy a new one. However....I just received an email from them stating that they are sending me a new jar for free. Now that made me so very happy that a company will stand by their product. I highly recommend this blender even more now. I love it and it chops thing so nice and fine. No grit or chewy pieces are left when its done. THANK YOU BLENDTEC...for taking care of your customers the way a good company should. I am now a customer for life and will always recommend your products.

    Awesome Carafe! Review by

    I purchased this as a replacement to my original which we wore out the rubber seal after 7 years of use. This Jar is very much improved over the original 4 sided Carafe. Not only is it somewhat larger but the flow of blended ingredients flows much better and provides significantly smoother results. Liquids and smoothie results are as if bought in a store.

    Seriously Improved Review by

    This jar replaced the 8 year old original one and every aspect is improved. It is quieter, blends frozen fruit completely, requires no stopping and tampering, and handles much more material making enough smoothie to last me the whole work day. The bearing looks to be improved too, time will tell with that. The huge blade looks impressive and no doubt does its magic. I think the blade and jar shape are possibly the best in the business.

    Need To Be Able To Replace Parts & Old Lids Better Review by

    Why can't these be made to where the bearings and blades can be replaced? We like the system, but buying new jars all the time is too spendy. If this doesn't change, we will find a better system soon.
    Also, the lids have changed & the old lids were much better (easier to remove & clean up better).
    This blender jar us BY FAR better than the one you offer with a small base, as that smaller based one does not seem to have the right dimensions to allow for proper rotation to blend well at all.

    really nice jar (so far) Review by

    I bought this replacement jar 1 or 2 months ago. It is a very good jar. so far, no problems. I hope this will last longer than previous jars. I have found that i need to buy a jar every 2 years. again, i hope this will last longer. If this will last longer than 2 or 3 years, i will definitely give this a 5 star rating.

    Got me a NEW Jar !!! Review by

    I bought my Blendtec few years ago and love it. This year we started notice a noise when making our smoothies. I thought it was the blender so I call the company and explain the problem.
    I was ready to pay if need it but the lady who answered the phone give a troubleshoting ON THE PHONE (!!!) and said - The problem is the jar not the blender, we can send you on a free one or for $20 we can send you the pro-something
    I was so glad that I didn't care to pay right there for this new jar so I ordered it.
    We just got it, so happy.

    Mmm ... so this is NOT a review on the jar?

    Worth every penny and then some! Review by

    I bought a Q-Series blender and Wildside 4 years ago that has been fantastic and gifted my Home model to my parents. The blender is built like a tank and the hood helps keep me from waking up my family at 5am. The jar requires thoughtful use. For example, if you fill your jar *starting* with frozen strawberries, you're asking for trouble. A normal blender would just get stuck and maybe blow its motor. The Blendtec is so strong that when the berry gets stuck between the 4 blade and the side of the jar, it will push the blade off axis and put excess strain on the gasket. Solution: fill your jar with hard, frozen pieces last. Also, if you aren't good about washing the jar after use, crystalline sugar deposits will accumulate around the seal and act like an abrasive and eventually grind down your gasket until it no longer seals. If you see an accumulated deposit in the jar after it has dried, you need to clean it better. Blendtec promptly replaced my Wildside jar even though it failed because of my mistakes. I have 4453 cycles on the new Wildside and its showing ZERO signs of wear. 2.25 US cents per cycle seems like a great value to me.

    It's the Extra Side!!! Review by

    I just upgraded my blendtec blender after 5 years of using the original jar. After one month of using the Extra wild side, I can say that it is ALL about the Extra Side. Green smoothies Blend with nothing more than a push of a button. No jamming, or pushing down ingredients mid-blend. I highly recommend this product.

    one cycle is all it takes with the Wildside featur Review by

    I've been using a blendtec for 7 years, and when i recently ordered a replacement jar, i got the wildside...I love it...its bigger and best of all the same blend cycle allows my frozen fruit blend to get thoroughly blended in just one smoothie cycle. Before i would have to run two smoothie cycles to get full blending...with no frozen chunks!

    We have a Total blender with about 1750 cycles on it accumulated over five years or so. The Wildside jar has given me what feels like a brand new blender !!. It is quieter and so far (one use) I like the extra capacity and flexibility. Looking forward to many years and cycles use out of this one. Our Blendtec is a 'go-to' appliance we use multiple times per week if not daily. Favorite is some awesome green smoothies we make to stay healthy with ease and taste !

    Simply The Best! Review by

    We have owned Blendtec blenders (2 of them) for many, many years and love them!!! Have had the Wildside Jar just about a month and from the first blend we realized how superior it is. We can put a little more in the jar to blend and it mixes ingredients better in less time. The fifth side really makes a huge difference. Remember-don't put your jar in the dishwasher-dries out the gasket-jar won't last as long!

    Best Customer Service Ever Review by

    I have 6 Blentecs and had no idea the warranty they carry. I just knew that it wast the best blender on the market. The jar blade in one of my blenders broke and I ordered another one. Thought it was a bit pricey, but when you buy the best you normally pay more. A couple of days later I get a call from someone at Blentec that said I was getting the blender for free (under warranty). Who does that???? After you have already paid, who gives you your money back??? Blendtec does! Not only the best blender on the planet, but the best customer service as well!

    Jars are terrible Review by

    I bought a Blentec a little over a two years ago for my business. I have a health food store and we wanted to offer smoothies. We don't do very many a day, on average about 5-6 but we have went through many jars. Some under the year warranty, some out, which means we are buying another $100 jar. I've been told it could be over use and when I explain we don't use it very much then I've been told it could be under use. I've been told to spin the blades before use, not to push down on the jar while blending, etc. It basically comes down to a very poor design for an expensive product. I purchased a commercial Vitamix before the Blentec and used that until we decided we would like the wider jar and I now use the Vitamix at home everyday going on three years and have never had an issue with the jar. I would not purchase again, I regret that I did so in the first place and would not recommend to anyone, for commercial or residential use.

    Shredded plastic gets into the jar Review by

    I've been using this jar for about 2 years now for several blends. I recently noticed smoke coming out of the blender on my last blend and there were also several plastic chunks inside the smoothie I was making. It appears that the black ring/gasket around the blade was being shredded. I can understand that a jar would have some lifetime after which it must be replaced but this is a terrible way for it to happen.

    Have used K-Tec/Blendtec Blenders for Years Review by

    We bought a K-Tec so long ago no longer remember when we bought it. Then, they had only the FourSide jar, the seal went out right at seven years, they replaced it under warranty. We bought a second FourSide jar, had it shipped with the warranty replacement. K-Tec still works but getting loud, one jar seal now leaking. Bought the new Blendtec Designer 600 (a Costco special set) a couple months ago that included the WildSide jar and the Twister jar along with all the recipes, etc. Now ordering another WildSide jar as we often need two for food prep. We are sending the K-Tec with FourSide jars to our sister-in-law who does catering in SoCal. Even at well over ten years old, it still works better than the much newer best there is (name brand omitted) she uses.

    hardly used only for smoothies. Review by

    $100 (+) for a plastic jar. In add'n. to the $400 (+/-) for the unit originally? I bought 2, one for my mother. If you enjoy shredded rubber in your smoothie, go for it. I've never used this blender for anything but smoothies or an occassional malt. Rubber started to deteriorate, then completely shredded inside and outside the jar. This should be a once in a lifetime purchase for this price.

    loved it for a long time... Review by

    we first got our Blendtec when we found out our daughter was going to have to have a g-tube and have a blended diet. We started using the Wildside jar and enjoyed how it worked until the gasket shredded. Unfortunately for $100 you would think you could get a jar that wouldn't fall apart. We love our blender but wish that either the jars were cheaper or better quality gaskets being used to make them.the thing that we are happy about is that the jar lasted for 2400 uses we hope a new one will last for 2400 more.

    Cheap pitcher on otherwise great blender Review by

    I bought this blender just over a year ago and was initially well pleased. It blends frozen food and raw food VERY well to almost baby food smoothness if desired. I make smoothies with it every day. However, the wonderful performance is shattered about every 6 months because the pitcher base burns up and breaks. This seems a common problem which leads me to wonder WHY doesn't Blendtec improve the design?? The contrast between the engineering excellence of the base and the weakness of the pitcher is hard to overstate. I have to order my 3rd pitcher...sigh. I'm thinking I may ebay this thing and get a Vitamix so I don't have to pay an extra $200/year for pitchers. Sooooo frustrating.

    Love my wildside jar! Review by

    I've had the total blender since February 2014 and have about 700 uses on it currently. I LOVE the Blendtec! The wildside jar is great for its capacity-we are a family of seven and need the bigger amounts when making smoothies and soups and such. I use it for everything: grinding wheat, making bread dough, making brownies/quick breads, crushing ice or bread crumbs, daily smoothies, ice cream, soup...I could go on... I need to get another one since my wheat and rice flour have clouded my jar considerably. :) I wish I could find a bundle! I'd buy three more in a heartbeat!

    Lately the jar has had a few issues and I've had the smoking/over loading issues I've seen mentioned in a few other reviews. I contacted Blendtec tonight and pray to have a new jar before any major breakdown of this one! I don't know if I could go without it for one day! :D

    A Great Replacement Review by

    I bought the wildside jar as a replacement for my regular jar when the latter's blender rotor blade seal shot black stuff all over the motor housing. I had bought a blendtec for my girlfriend with a wildside jar so I'm familiar with the advantages of this jar and I really like mine. I use it mostly to make morning smoothies where I can put nuts, veggies, fruit and all sorts of ingredients to aid my health. It handles everything quite well and I particularly like that it can start on a slow speed for other types of blending.
    After I bought the wildside jar I was contacted by a company representative who informed me that I had an active warranty on the blender and so I opted to accept a twister jar instead of a refund on the replacement jar. I'm looking forward to making peanut butter and hummus with the twister jar.
    I do, however, have a concern about the seals wearing out on the jars. The blendtec I got for my girlfriend is a year and a half old and I find black material oozing out of the bottom of the jar around the rotor/blade (see photo). As I think back on my original jar it showed those same signs. Yet there was never any leakage from the jar nor was there contamination of the ingredients of the jar and this holds true for the wildside jar that my girlfriend has. But when the seal blew on mine I didn't want to take a chance on leakage or contamination and so I ordered a new one.
    I'm posting this as a mixed review but I do like my blender!

    Unsatisfactory performance Review by

    Purchased a factory re-certified blender direct from Blendtec. Used for three days. Loading and content instructions were followed precisely however the unit vibrated and moved around the counter and was very noisy. On the third day, the on/off switch broke requiring us to unplug the blender after each use. We returned it for a refund and purchased another brand.

    Walkin' on the Wildside! Review by

    I just received the Wildside jar, and I absolutely love it! I think that my daily blending is less noisy and I love the size of the jar. I am also a much happier with the new lid; I was still using my original jar with a smaller opening, and a narrower base. In general, this blender jar is much more user-friendly.

    So happy to be walking on the wild side!

    Great Blender, poor jar design! Review by

    I purchased my Blendtec for my restaurant where we make large volume of smoothies. I had two jars and both seized up in less than a year. I reached out but I warranty covered when purchased, not when my restaurant opened. I am building nine more restaurants and will not use Blendtec for this reason.

    Blender leaks Review by

    I purchase the blender a few years ago and after about a year the Jar started leaking from the gasket near the blade. The Jar was still usable. Over time the leak got worse and now the Jar is unusable and it make a loud noise when you turn on the blender. I called and emailed Bendtec. They said it was out a warrenty and I needed to by a new one.

    More room! Review by

    We make enough fruit smoothies for four. The original jar was a little too small. The Wildside jar is just right.

    Just as expected! Review by

    It works great for bread making and larger recipes. My one piece of advice is that when I bought the blender I didn't originally get the Wildside jar, but after using it for a while I wished I had. If I was to do it again I would have bought the package including the wild side jar from the start as I think it would have been a better deal.

    Nice upgrade Review by

    I bought this jar to replace the original jar that came with my Blendtec- the bottom seal had failed and was flinging ground gunk both inside and outside my blender jar. Blendtec customer service was going to send me a free replacement, but it never arrived. I love my Blendtec, so it was worth finally biting the bullet to buy the replacement. Fast enough shipping, good quality jar. I hope it lasts!

    Blendtec honors their warranty Review by

    I abuse my blender daily with frozen fruits, and the jar failed after having it for about 7 months. I got a new one in 3 days w/ no hassle after emailing customer service about it. Realistically, no blender jar's blade assembly is going to last years with daily use (I bought the blender expecting to need warranty replacements for the jar, since there's no chance it's going to last 7 years with daily use), so as long as blendtec keeps sending me new jars when they wear out for the duration of the warranty, I'm satisfied.

    The jar sounds different when it's starting to wear out, so when this happens get in touch w/ customer service so you can get a new one shipped out to you before the old one completely breaks.

    Gasket in jars are flawed Review by

    I've had a Blendtec blender for over a year now and use it daily, mainly for smoothies. This is just an awesome blender. Drinking a green smoothie for breakfast everyday has been so beneficial to my husband and I. This company is very responsive and customer oriented. The blender is well worth the initial cost if you use it regularly.
    Now for the bad part of the review. I got this jar type with the blender and have not tried the others. It worked fine initially but gradually the blade became more and more difficult to spin. Finally, it burned up as I was using it. It started smoking and stunk. I thought the blender was ruined, but turned out it was just the jar, thankfully. I called and ordered a replacement and a spare of the same jar. The same gradual sticking of the blade happened with time on the replacement jar. After just a few months I went to the spare jar and have used it only two months now and the blade will not turn except with pretty good force. It is actually much worse than the replacement jar so I am going back to that jar until I can contact the company (it is the weekend now). After reading some of the customer service responses to reviews I am wondering why I wasn't offered a cost free replacement of the original jar which was well within its 3 year warranty. What's up with that, Blendtec?
    I always wash my jar by hand immediately after use with hot soapy water. At times I have left the water in the blender for an extended period, although infrequently. I have concluded there is some type of lubricant in the seal of the gasket which leaches out in contact with soapy water. I hope Blendtec will address this issue because I so love this blender.

    Great Customer Service Review by

    Ok, my jar has a gasket leak. I freaked out, however I called the customer service and since my blender was only 2 years old they are replacing it. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!

    Wildside Jar Doesn't Last Review by

    I purchased a new Blentec blender within the last year and my Wildside jar is already failing. How long is the warranty on the jar? Also, I have two spare jars from previously. How can I tell which one is the newest jar? Will the number on the bottom indicate when the jar was made? Thank you.

    Great blender, too bad the jar's gasket has broken Review by

    I bought this 10 months ago and now the jar leaks and gasket is going. I've used it to make smoothies only - about 2 a week over those 10 months. Don't want to spend $100 for a replacement jar if it will break down too. Really disappointed and unsure what to do.

    Must Have For A Minimalist Kitchen Review by

    This blender is extremely versatile. I use it for many tasks from whipping up smoothies and hummus to making bread dough. One base and two jars (Wildside and Twister) take up little space but deliver big on multi-function ability. If it could cook rice, it would be the only counter top appliance I would need. The really important thing is it works great.

    Luv my Blender, disappointed in the leaking gasket Review by

    Ive not quite has this a year and the black gasket to my wildside jar started shredding - we'd see little black shreds on the base when we removed the jar- now the gasket leaks any liquid we put in. Im really disappointed and hope I can have the jar replaced since we dont use it daily but its a great product and the jars are awfully expensive if the gasket is going to shred and wiggle the blade and leak. I thought my kids did it so blamed them, but in the Q&A section here, I see its not an isolated situation. I hope we can get this resolved so I can go back to loving my blender!

    Love it. Hate the new lids Review by

    I like the wide body and that I can do three smoothies. I run a coffee shop and use it constantly. The new lids though come in two parts. Too any parts to wash and keep track of in a busy shop.

    Outstanding! Review by

    I got the Wildside as a replacement for the original jar that I flat wore out. This jar is terrific -- it is quieter than the standard jar when I make my smoothies which are very heavy on the ice. It also blends the contents quicker than the original jar and has a lower profile. Also easier to clean than the original jar because the base is wider and I can get a cleaning brush down there very easily. Awesome jar.

    Very Well Made! Review by

    Perfection in a jar Review by

    Love this jar as I love anything I have owned of their brand. I have been using blendtec for 20 years and it's one of the companies that has continued to improve the quality of their already exceptional products over time. Highly recommend.

    Best blender ever Review by

    I got this as a gift in the year, 2009 and it turned out to be the best blender I've ever used. It makes the best smoothes for breakfast. Its easy to clean, powerful. The only con about this blender is that I have the smaller version of the container Jar. I just found out that they came out with a larger jar. I definitely will be buying the larger jar its wider and it holds more. Its better then the Vita mix blender.
