For most consumers, the biggest problem in choosing a blender is that there are way too many names and brands to choose from. Which one to get? Which specs to consider? Which model is perfect for your needs? 

article5This is probably you at some point

With all the competition, it’s hard for a blender to stand out. So when it does, it’s definitely worth looking at. Take for example theBlendtec WildSide HP3A. It’s one of the best-performing and highly-rated blenders out there. Why, you might ask? For starters, its container has an innovative fifth side which isn’t found in the other Blendtec models. This allows food to be easily swooped into the vortex, creating creamier and smoother blends.

And of course, it has a total of 25 pre-programmed settings for you to choose from, as well as four custom settings. This ensures you a perfect blend every time, with no extra hassle on your part.

Here are more reasons why you ought to be.

ONE — The 96-ounce container and 4-inch 2-prong blade

Compared to other blenders, the container of this Blendtec model is bigger, with its 3 quarts capacity. This allows you to make enough smoothies in one go. It is also BPA-free and it has a square design which makes pouring so much easier. Everything is all about your convenience here. It saves you time and effort, and the design was conceived with all your requirements in mind.

Please take note though that Blendtec instructs its customers not to fill the container more than half when you blend. This is because the ingredients need a lot of space to go around. If you must blend more than half of the pitcher, make sure to hold the lid when you do so.  No need to worry though, you should be more than fine if you aren’t too stubborn to follow instructions.

TWO — Shorter and easier to store in cabinets

This has always been a point of comparison between Blendtec and its biggest counterpart Vitamix. While Vitamix is a lot taller and won’t fit the standard-sized cabinets, shelves and countertops, this one does so perfectly.

With its 7x8x15” dimensions, it can be stowed easily in the cabinet under your kitchen counter for safer storage (away from reckless hands and feet of little children and/or cats).

THREE — Wonderful design

Let’s face it, looks are important. Whether in a person, place or product, the first impressions are often made just by looking. Blendtec WildSide HP3A blender happens to be one of those eye-catching products. It has a streamlined digital look devoid of manual knobs and dials, resulting to a modern and fab design. As one customer puts it, “If it’s going to sit on my counter every day, I want it to be pretty.” Yes, sure does make sense.

blender“Oh hey there, baby. Wanna take me home? ;)” — it even knows how to pick up customers with just one look!


Everyone perks up when they hear the word freebies. You would too when it’s a free recipe book! And when we say recipe book, it’s not just a glorified little pamphlet with a few measly recipes printed on it. This one has a pretty spiral bound design with awesome photos and really helpful recipes for the following kinds of food: desserts, purees, sauces, salads, fondues, soups, breads, syrups, batters, cocktails, smoothies, and so much more! You’ll feel like a pro in no time, plus, you get to maximize your purchase too!

FIVE — Automatic blending cycles

The touchpad offers pre-programmed cycles which make life so much easier for you. It has automatic blending cycles for ice cream, frozen yogurt, ice crushing, milkshakes, soups, syrups, fondues, sauces, dips, dressings, batters, whole juice, and smoothies. This means, you only need to press a few buttons and – voila! — it would do the work for you.

So just sit tight and go watch TV or something while the Blendtec WildSide HP3A speeds up and slows down and sucks into the vortex all the ingredients, creating perfectly blended results. It will automatically stop once it’s done, which is basically as dummy-proof as anything could get. It’s pretty hard to screw up when your equipment is way too smart.

It has a total of 25 settings, with  4 changeable pre-set buttons, and a manual mode of 10 speeds. What’s more, if you need to stop the blender from finishing a pre-programmed cycle, you only need to press any of the lower buttons. Sweet.


One of the major selling points of Blendtec blenders is its high-powered 3HP motor. It also boasts of 1560 watts, 13 amps, and a blade speed which could go up to 29,000 RPMs.

So, do you know what that means???



It can pulverize frozen fruits within seconds. (holy sh*t!)

SEVEN — Warranty

One very important thing to consider when buying a product is the length of warranty. It basically means that you have a great-performing product when the manufacturer is willing to handle the replacements and repairs for such a long time. Not only that, but it gives you peace of mind too.

Bottomline is, it’s one of the best blenders out there in the market. When it comes to speed, power, reliability and results, you definitely can’t go wrong with this. It’s worth every single penny you shell out.

Now, how many other products can tell you that?
