Tip #1: Use your Blendtec to grind wheat or other grains into flour: Grind your whole grains and turn them into healthy whole grain flour. For wheat, add 2 cups into your Blendtec and set on speed 9. Blend for 50 seconds. It will produce 2 2/3 cup flour. Don’t stop at wheat though! You can grind brown rice, dried chickpeas, lentils, legumes, quinoa etc! Just FYI when grinding hard grains, it may pit the jar interior resulting in a fogged appearance (I don’t worry about this because I love this tip too much to worry about a foggy jar).

I don’t have a soup setting on my blendtek and wonder if there is a way to make soup in mine. Any recommendations? Thank you.
Please how do i confirm it is refublish ?
My blender doesn’t have an ice cream setting. What speed should I use?
If your Blendtec doesn’t feature an Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt button, blend on a Low speed for 15 seconds, then blend on a Medium High speed for 30 seconds. If more blending is required, press pulse several times until desired texture is achieved.

I am in the market for a new high powered blender. Was wondering if this pulverizes raspberry seeds and such. That is one of the most important things to me is getting silky smooth smoothies. Also wondering if your Blendtec is a refurbished model. I have read bad reviews concerning the refurbished models. If I get a refurbished model, does that also carry an 8 yr. warranty?
Hi Cindy, I have never tried the raspberries yet. So I’m not sure if they would get pulverized or not. Mine is brand new. not refurbished.

When you grind meat in your blendtec do you use a separate jar? I’m just afraid of cross contamination.
no I don’t. I make sure to wash it really well. Throw a capful of bleach in there with hot water and soap and let it soak.
