S TO RY You may know me from the Will It Blend? videos, where I pulverize everything from rake handles to iPhones in Blendtec’s highpowered blenders. But long before the Will It Blend? series exploded on YouTube, I was blending wood 2x2s with my blenders to test their limits. In fact, I grew up putting big motors in little things.

n the early 1970s, I was a manufacturing engineer at a pharmaceutical company in California, enjoying the opportunity to develop medical-related products. I also had an interest in home food storage, and one day I accidentally spilled some wheat on my garage floor. After cleaning up the grain with a vacuum, out of curiosity I inspected the contents of the vacuum bag and noticed that some of the wheat had been ground to flour. Inspired, I invented a grain mill that revolutionized the home milling industry. Always looking for ways to innovate, next I focused on developing the perfect mixer to make wholesome bread dough in minutes. With its autoknead function, the mixer does the labor-intensive work for you and then stops when the dough is perfect. In the 1990s, as smoothie shops became popular, I noticed the need for high-powered blenders to achieve smooth blends. Accepting the challenge, I developed a blender with a large motor and preprogrammed blend cycles, topped with a square jar. The blender was a huge success, introducing many of the technologies found in commercial blending today. I believe that high-quality products belong in the home as well as in restaurants, so I introduced commercial-grade power and functionality into the home kitchen arena. Blendtec’s team of engineers is constantly looking for ways to further improve our products.

After vacuuming up spilled wheat, Tom Dickson finds the vacuum has milled the wheat into flour. Dickson introduces the Kitchen Mill, revolutionizing the home mill industry.

Dickson designs a mixer with an autoknead function that makes 12 pounds of bread dough.

The insights gained from making commercial blenders are used to engineer the Total Blender, a commercial-grade blender for home use.

Our square jar changed the industry, but we continued to innovate. We introduced to the home our groundbreaking jar with a fifth side for bigger, faster blends.

Nut butters. Cream cheese spreads. Hummus. Create your thickest, most spreadable blends in seconds. The exclusive Twister jar does it all.

Aesthetic appeal, an intuitive touch interface, and Blendtec’s trademark performance are combined in the Designer Series blender.

Since its inception in 1975, Blendtec has been trailblazing in an industry that many believed had run out of groundbreaking improvements. ®

If you’ve ever purchased a smoothie from a retailer, chances are you’ve already enjoyed Blendtec innovation. The smoothest of smooth smoothies? That’s made possible by us. Preprogrammed, one-touch control? We did that. A spacesaving design? Yes, that’s us too.

Time and again, the innovations that drive the blending industry have been developed by Blendtec’s talented engineering team. And we continue to build upon that legacy with forward-thinking ideas that define the future of blending in the home. pg

Cleanup as Easy as 1-2-3 With other kitchen appliances, every recipe ends with the dreaded cleanup. With the Home Blender, cleanup is amazingly simple with its flat, sealed touchpad and smooth motor base. A quick wipe with a damp cloth and your blender looks as good as new.

Our passion for innovation has led to the greatest developments in blending technology. From the computerized blend cycles and one-touch control to the finely balanced motor assembly that reduces noise and increases longevity, Blendtec’s blenders are not only made to last but also to provide an effortless, enjoyable blending experience. Because we thrive in a culture of innovation, we constantly question even the tiniest details. As a consequence, the advancements we introduce today are the breakthroughs others will try to imitate tomorrow.

Designed & Assembled in the USA For Blendtec, it’s a philosophy. We proudly support our national economy by engineering and building our blenders here in the USA. What’s more, at least 80% of all our manufacturing materials are sourced in the USA. As we bring additional cababilities in-house, that percentage will continue to grow.

Designer Series ™

Illuminated Capacitive-Touch Surface The control surface on the Designer Series has illuminated, easy-toread, universal icons so you can effortlessly select one of Blendtec’s customized blend cycles. These cycles are optimized to deliver great blends with a single touch—every time.

Blendtec’s Designer Series has been engineered to bring a new level of beauty and functionality to the high-end blender category—without compromising the famous power and efficiency found in all Blendtec blenders. Even in the biggest kitchens, counter space is limited. So we carefully considered your real estate when we created the Designer Series. It fits easily under most cabinetry, and its slender design takes up minimal space on your counter. Say good-bye to that big, old blender you stored out of sight and out of mind (and therefore didn’t use very much).

Twister™ Jar

FourSide™ Jar

The Twister jar was designed to blend the world’s thickest recipes. Nut butters, hummus, baby food, dips, thick shakes, dressings, and more—the thicker the better! Simply add ingredients and twist the lid while blending. The tines on the lid pull the ingredients back into the blade, meaning you’ll achieve a perfect blend every time.

Aren’t jars supposed to be round? Not if you want a great blend. The FourSide jar’s square shape and patented single-prong, wingtip blade create a better blending vortex to micronize fruits and vegetables and make their nutrients more bioavailable to the body.

Industry Leading Jars Blendtec’s jars are uniquely designed for blending whole foods better—everything from juices, shakes, and smoothies to thicker recipes, such as bread dough and nut butters. Features
