Blendtec 625 Review Facts

The Blendtec 625 is a powerful and stylish blender designed for home kitchens. Its advanced engineering makes perfectly smooth and creamy recipes every time. Blendtec is well-known for machines that are extremely durable, beautiful, and functional. The 625 is at the high end of the product line. It offers additional functionalities and features that take blending to the next level. The 625 has a beautiful, sleek appearance and blends exceptionally well. It pulverizes ingredients and blends whole juice, dips and spreads, ice cream, hot soups, and smoothies. There are four pre-programmed blending cycles for smoothies, ice cream, whole juice, and hot soup.

There is a pulse feature, 11-speed settings, and a six-speed slider that give the user control for customized blending. The pulse is used when a high-speed power burst is needed. The toughest seeds and nuts and ice are cut with the stainless steel blades that spin at 29,000 RPM. While the blender was designed for home use, the overall efficiency and blending power makes it popular in smoothie shops.

Features

Features

The Blendtec 625 packs powerful features into streamlined electronic controls that allow users to accomplish various tasks by pressing a button. The 625 is engineered to perform and fit with the user’s fashion sense. It has an intuitive touch screen with icons that are easy to see. The screen makes the blender simple to use and versatile. With a single touch, the screen lights up. It shuts off automatically. The screen is flat, which makes it simple to clean with a quick swipe.

A user slides a finger right or left to control the speed of the motor for customized blending. The pulse is used at any speed for added bursts of power. There is no guesswork. Four pre-programmed blender cycles enable perfect one-touch blending for hot soup, whole juice, ice cream, and smoothies. The package comes with a blender base that contains controls and motor and a WildSide Tritan Jar that is lightweight and BPA-free; and a vented Gripper lid in black. The lid seals in liquids during use. Its center lifts off to add extra ingredients and allows pressure to escape when hot ingredients or liquids are being blended.

Manuals and recipes are nice additions to a blender. The manual for the Blendtec 625 leaves something to be desired. It has ten recipes and only quick instructions. The blender can be figured out without a guide, and a digital owner’s manual is available. It is technologically impressive. The blender does not have the ‘Smartblend Technology’ that was added to the 725, which detects problems like air pockets that can prevent achieving a perfect blend. It also has less pre-programmed cycles.
Accessories

Accessories

There is a 75-ounce FourSide jar for heating drinks and soups, grinding grains, and smaller quantities. It has a 32-ounce capacity. Like the jar that comes with the Blendtec 625 blender, it is a four-side jar that effectively harnesses the blender power.

A square shape pulls ingredients to the blade instead of spinning them around in a jar that is circular. Blendtec also has a GO travel bottle accessory that offers a disposable blend-in-cup option. It allows for single-serve blending in a reusable bottle. Blending directly to a disposable cup is possible and provides the ultimate grab-and-go option.

The blender can also be ordered with a Spoonula. It is a 13-inch long spatula shaped for the Blendtec jars. It helps in getting the last bits from the jar. The Spoonula resists heat to 500° F. A soft vented Gripper mix-in lid that has a transparent square plug is also available.

Customers who purchased it say it is a better lid than the one that comes with the blender. It can be used on all Blendtec jars. Only 13 reviews have been posted on Amazon, but all gave the lid a five-star rating.

There is also an accessories package that includes a Twister jar, Patented Twister lid, Spectacula spatula, and a Mini Gripper lid. The Twister lid has tines that rotate. They push ingredients to the side and into the vortex. The user does not have to stop and scrap the sides manually. Contents of the jar are easily scraped out with the Spectacula spatula.

Cleaning

The flat controls make the blender easy to clean. The Blendtec 625 features advanced controls that bring a modern touch to the kitchen and make cleaning and blending easier than ever. A single touch creates fantastic blends. When finished, the blender can be wiped clean.
Performance

Performance

The power of the motor plays a significant role in the performance of a machine. The 625 motor is powerful enough to make a user jump back when used for the first time. The 3-peak horsepower motor has quite an advantage of its closest competition having a 2.2-peak horsepower.

A 3-peak horsepower motor means the blender is more powerful and quicker than blenders with motors having less horsepower. It is more powerful than is typically needed. The blender is a bit noisy. Because of the power, the noise does not last long. Full force is seldom used. Operating under less load lessens the stress placed on the motor and results in a longer motor life.

Some reviewers say the blend makes a good, not great, frozen fruit smoothie. It is ideal for just about everything else. Other reviewers praise the ability to turn ice into snow quickly and get rid of chunky bits left behind in shakes and smoothies by other blenders.
