Blendtec 575 Review

Welcome to our Blendtec 575 Classic review!

In this test report, we describe how the high-performance blender performs both: simple fruit smoothies and sophisticated green smoothies with spinach, carrot green, and wild berries. In addition to the smoothie preparation, the Blendtec mixers are also known for their high application variability and offer the user further options when chopping, grinding, or also when preparing ice cream or almond butter. Before we go into detail here, we would like to give you the most important properties of the high-performance blender from Blendtec in advance.

Design & Construction

The design certainly plays an important role when buying a blender. It must be clearly said that the more up-to-date Blendtec blenders differ from their competitors such as Vitamix. They look very sporty, elegant, and powerful at the same time. They are lower in height and generally also appear optically rather small and narrow. These properties also apply to the Blendtec Classic 575. Visually, you could almost speak of the Ferrari among the mixers. We will find out below in the practical tests whether its performance, i.e. the blending results, can be linked to this.

The blender structure is classic and so the kitchen appliance consists of the two main parts of the mixer body with motor and a removable mixer cup (model: Fourside). This has the advantage that you can start mixing immediately after unpacking the new device. Simply connect the Blendtec high-performance mixer to the power, attach the blender jar, add ingredients, and get started using the automatic programs or manual control.

How To Use Blendtec 575 Blender?

blendtec-classic-575-test

The control panel is designed to be very user-friendly in that it is primarily very clear and simple. In the top row, we find the 4 blending cycles: “Smoothie, 60-second, 90-second, and cleaning”. Underneath on the left outside, there is a stop button, in the middle 5 manually controllable speed levels, and on the right side a practical pulse function. Also very helpful is the display in the front area, which shows both the duration of the blending and the total number of applications.

With the two control options, the Blendtec blender is extremely easy to use. The manual speed control has the advantage that you can go into the mix in a very targeted manner and influence the desired consistency as much as possible. However, every manual blending process is automatically stopped after 50 seconds. Of course, you can start the blender again immediately afterward, for example, if you want to mix very fiber-rich wild herbs or have very large quantities of mix processed and therefore want to increase the runtime.

The automatic blending cycles are advantageous because the user can also do other things during the mixing process. This can reduce your own workload and, of course, this control is also very convenient.

There is also an on and off switch on the rear of the engine block housing.

Blender Jar

Large batches BPA-free Wild Side+ jar is a 90-ounce volume jar with 36-ounce blending capacity (wet or dry) ideal for blending beverages for 4-6 people. The container has 2 high-quality, long and blunt stainless steel knives that are successfully doing their job and a blender jar lid with a very firm fit and extremely practical handling thanks to 4 protruding corners. The filler opening is just under 5 cm in section and is useful to be able to add other ingredients during the mixing process.

A plus point is also the measuring scale, which makes it easy to read the filling quantity in oz, cl, ml, and cups.

Blending with Blendtec 575 Classic

We tested the Blendtec Classic 575 extensively over several weeks and mixed many different smoothie recipes with fruit, vegetables, superfoods, and green ingredients such as wild herbs.

Our ingredients were:

  • Fruit, vegetables, and exotic: strawberries, apples, bananas, oranges, avocados, cucumbers, mangoes, limes, kiwis, ginger, pineapples, pitted dates, lemons.
  • Superfoods: Blueberries, mulberries, chia seeds, hemp seeds, moringa, camu camu, carob, maca, goji berries, and quinoa.
  • Green leaves/culinary herbs: including lamb’s lettuce, parsley, spinach
  • Wild herbs: garlic arugula, dandelion, lemon balm, red dead nettle, small and large sorrel, ribwort, burdock herb, creeping charlie, chickweed, stonecrop, mugwort, comfrey, salsify, narrow-leaved willow-herb, forest spruce, and mallow.

Blending Results:

When mixing simple fruit and green smoothies, the Blendtec Classic 575 achieves good results in its price and performance class. Lemon and lime peels, frozen raspberries, and very high-fiber ingredients such as wild herbs are crushed properly, but not 100% smooth. With a longer runtime, the mix results become even better. The performance potential of very large quantities of the mix is ​​impressive. Here you can see the enormous power of the mixer very clearly. Although the effort for the engine block can be recognized by slight swinging movements, the mixer remains stable without rotating and can skillfully process large quantities. The temperatures of the blended smoothies were very pleasant. All smoothies made have great taste. In terms of creaminess and delicacy of the mix results, however, there is still a little room for improvement.

Other areas of application

Blendtec blenders are usually great all-rounders in the kitchen, with which you can not only conjure up delicious smoothies but also cover many more areas of application. In combination with the Twister Jar, tough consistencies such as almond butter, strawberry ice cream or pesto can also be produced. Preprogrammed cycles make it easier than ever to create smoothies, salsas, hot soups, and more.

Cleaning

Compared to many other blenders, cleaning a high-performance mixer is a child’s play. Especially with this Blendtec Classic 575, because firstly few and secondly very long knives are used. Fill the 1.0 liter four side blender jar up to a third with water, add a drop of washing-up liquid (no more, otherwise it foams too much!), Start the high-performance mixer either via the manual control and leave it to 20- Run at high speed for 30 seconds or use the fixed cleaning program. Then empty the blender jar, rinse again with clear water, and the 575 blender jar is cleaned. Alternatively, it is also dishwasher-safe. However, in terms of the longest possible shelf life, we prefer manual cleaning. The blender jar handle also has an opening that can only be cleaned and dried at this point after the ingress of liquid or dirt. You can then wipe the engine block and control panel with a damp cloth.

Safety

Important basic requirements for life-sustaining and life-prolonging functions of a blender are created here with the overload and overheating protection. Unfortunately, the mixer does not have a mixed container detection (child lock).
