It sounds crazy, but this wonderful addition to the Blendtec lineup is sure to make you wonder how in the world you ever used your Vitamix without it.
Understanding why Blendtec would make a jar for Vitamix blenders
Before we really get into the meat and potatoes of what this jar is, you really should know about why it came into existence in the first place.
There are a couple of reasons given by Blendtec as to why they wanted to make this jar for their main competitor’s blender base.
First, there was a safety issue. This came in the form of a recall issued a couple of years ago regarding Vitamix’s blade system breaking inside of the jar.
Now, while this was a voluntary move on the part of Vitamix and no one was injured, this still raised some concern in the blending world.
I mean, do you really like the idea of a razor sharp blade splintering in your kitchen at roughly 70 miles an hour? You’re certainly not alone if your answer was a resounding no, I assure you of that.
What’s Reason Number 2 for the Blendtec jar for Vitamix?
The second reason that Blendtec decided to make this addition to their lineup was the lawsuit between Blendtec and Vitamix.
There was a patent infringement suit as Vitamix came out with a five sided jar similar to the WildSide Jar. The name of this one escapes me at the moment, but needless to say, Blendtec won the case.
So what is this jar anyway?
It is known as the Blendtec WildSide+ Rebel jar and it is meant to be a more permanent change for Vitamix users.

Closing thoughts on the Blendtec jars for Vitamix
While this jar will be one of the best investments that some users can make, it is certainly not for everyone.
Have you ever used this jar? Were you familiar with it at all before, as I’ve had several people simply say, “nah they don’t make that.” I must admit, when I first found out about it, I was just as surprised myself. Thanks for reading.
