The Total Blender Classic is the all-in-one appliance that makes smoothies, fresh juice, ice cream, milk shakes, cappuccinos, margaritas, soups, sauces, bread dough, dressings, salsas and more! It replaces up to 9 other appliances with 1 fast, easy-to-use machine.
This package includes the new precision tuned 4″ blade in the large, BPA-free WildSide jar. The new large blade and large jar combination powers through tougher blending tasks and larger recipes with ease and in less time
The design of the Total Blender’s jar has been patented by Blendtec. Because it is square in shape, contents are able to be poured from any of three slightly tapered corners, all of which resemble spouts.
Although frequently referred to by reviewers as a 3-quart container, the capacity of the WildSide jar is 88 ounces. It is made of a high-strength Bisphenol a (BPA)-free copolyester. Measurements in ounces (up to 36) and cups (up to 4) are marked on two sides of the container.
It is also marked with the registered NSF International stamp, meaning it meets the foundation’s (formerly known as the National Sanitation Foundation) requirements for equipment and material intended for commercial food service, a general benchmark for public health standards.
The blade assembly this Blendtec Total Blender, features a single 4” stainless steel blade that turns in one direction, clockwise. This assembly is sonically fused onto the jar and does not detach. From the underside of the jar, the slotted metal end of the blade shaft fits perfectly into the correspondingly-grooved drive socket of a titanium coupling. Along with the blade shaft/drive socket connection, a 1 ¼”-deep continuous lip extends from the bottom of the jar, insuring it rests securely on the upper extension of the motor base while the blender is in use.
