This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Based in the USA, Blendtec boasts over 40 years of manufacturing experience, and gained fame in the early 2000s by putting objects such as bone-in chickens and iPhones in their blenders. While that is a bit absurd, it does highlight their products' incredible power and reliability. Whether a seasoned home cook or demanding restaurant chef, one of these will surely meet your culinary prep needs.

Editor's Notes

January 24, 2019:

What do iPhones, iPads, camcorders, Transformer toys, whole chickens with the bones, and nachos and beer all have in common? Well, they all found their way into a Blendtec blender in the early aughts, as part of the viral "Will it Blend?" marketing campaign. True story: each of these items was pulverized, to varying degrees of success. So we know that they're some seriously powerful machines, though they do require quite an investment. As such, mid-range models like the Chef 600 are very popular, and can stand up to nearly any in-home use, as well as use in most restaurants. Of course, if you just want to add some dependability to your personal cooking routine, the Classic model isn't too costly, and should serve most consumers' needs. The Connoisseur, Pro 750, and Pro 795 all feature exceptionally high duty cycles, and can be used quite a few times daily, without worrying of burnout or malfunction. The EZ 600 is another high-volume model, and it's a great compromise between cost and effectiveness. If you're running a popular coffee or juice joint, there are a few units that come with incredibly convenient (and ear-saving) plastic noise shrouds, which both your employees and customers will greatly appreciate. The 895 is a particularly interesting selection, as it features a commercial-focused system for blending drinks in the plastic cups usually distributed in retail service. Just keep in mind that this particular model doesn't include a blender bowl, though it is compatible with both FourSide and WildSide jars. All of these are pretty easy to clean, for what it's worth, and utilize high-quality plastic that tends to resist staining from colorful foods (tomato sauce generally notwithstanding, however). Some are capable of heating soups, as well, or even preparing fresh ice cream. And if you'll be frequently swapping out the containers for different dishes or purees, take a look at the brand's proprietary rinsing system, which can really cut down on dishwashing time.
