Outstanding Features of Blendtec Designer Series Wildside Blender
Designers, however, felt that Blendtec Designer Series Wildside should make its presence felt, so they gave it unique appearance, making it stand out amongst other food processors.
The first thing that will strike you about Blendtec Designer Series Wildside is its compact design. It will occupy just 9.2 inches x 15 inches x 7 inches of your kitchen counter space. The base is obviously larger, but it does fit in easily in most kitchens. This 8 pounds food processor comes with 1,560 watts motor, making it a commercial grade food processor. This means it is suitable for completing a large variety and quantum of workload within an extremely short span.
It’s “Vented Gripper” technology lid ensures that nothing spurts out of its Wildside jar. The vent on the lid of Blendtec Designer Series Wildside lets the air current churned up leave within its jar’s chamber leave without taking food stuff along with it. Completely, it prevents any air lock within this chamber. The lid is also different in appearance because it is flat unlike lids of most food processors.
What more, your Blendtec Designer Series Wildside blender functions without any noise and vibration, making it easy for you to complete some of your food processing chores without waking up the light sleepers in your home. The secret behind this noiseless performance is the accuracy with which power supply is connected to the processor’s powerful motor at the base. This precision at its motor base is also responsible for even functioning, and durability of these high end food making machines.
Touch Screen Controls
Another unique feature included in Blendtec Designer Series Wildside is its touch screen controls, which make them easier to clean. The control buttons have been an issue for quite some time. Many of the contemporary processors have changed such controls and switched to touch screen controls, but the uniqueness of Blendtec Designer series is that it lets people choose the speed at which they want its high speed motor to run.
The display indicates the selected speed, and there is a countdown timer, as well. Entire control area is illuminated on these food machines, and selecting the blending and mixing cycle is rather easy because of the popular icons such as those for batter, soups, ice cream, ice crush, smoothie, and juice.
This intelligent blender can adjust the speeds based on the icon you choose since it has pre-programmed cycles built in for each such icon. But nothing prevents the user from specifying those cycles manually. There is pulse button that allows the user to extend the manual cycle time if needed although it is better using other options such as those for soups.
Auto Cooling Mechanism
Another automated feature of this machine is its cooling mechanism. The motor of this processor remains cool because of pioneering engineering design which ensures that air flows in regularly for cooling the motor, and hot air leaves the machine. Not only withstanding such designing excellence an electronic control has also been included within this machine, which switches off the motor till the excess heat dissipates.
As a result of such protection, the motorheads in Blendtec Designer Series Wildside last much longer than those in other food making machines.
Perfect BPA Free Jar
The four sided Wildside jar for blending and other functions have calibrations on it facing the user, making it easier for measuring various food items being added to it. The material used to make these Triton Polyester jars is BPA free. The wingtip stainless steel blades within this jar are cold forged.
These blades are sonically welded within the jar making them highly durable and sound. The design of these blades is such that it churns the food while simultaneously blending, chopping, grinding, mixing, etc. Effectively, this blade design ensures quite superior consistency of the blended, ground, pulverized, or mixed food.
The plus points of Blendtec Designer Series Wildside include-
1. 7 year warranty from the manufacturer.
2. Single blade technology that means fewer hassles of changing blades.
3. Easy to clean because there is no place for the food particle to hide.
4. Easy to store because of its slender design.
5. The material and technologies incorporated in the machine make it a long lasting appliance.
6. It has programmable cycles.
The downsides of Blendtec Designer Series Wildside Blender include:
a. The product is available for $407 or so as of date, which makes it out of budget of most people.
b. The manual cycle control is limited to 50 seconds, like in the previous Blendtec food processors. This may not be enough for all recipes.
c. Though its plastic jar is capable of withstanding heavy work load, it can get a bit noisy when larger quantities of food is being processed.
d. The plastic jar forming part of this appliance is not scratching proof, making it look old after some usage, and grinding grains and seeds can become an undesirable option.
