Blendtec 725 Overview
Blendtec is a Utah-based company that sells commercial and residential blenders. The company was founded in 1975, and as of 2020, the company still operates primarily from Orem, Utah, United States. Sold in 90 countries worldwide, Blendtec products offer blending solutions for both home and commercial use.
Blendtec continues to design and engineer the next generation of kitchen technology. In July 2013, Blendtec won the 2013 Gold Innovation Award for innovations delivered by Blendtec’s Signature Series and Stealth lines of blenders.
In June 2017, Blendtec was awarded the 2017 Kitchen Innovations Award for its Nitro Blending System.
Their Nitro Blending System is the first to use a commercial jarless design, blending food in the same disposable cup handed to the customer.
Key Features of Blendtec 725
The 725 model features a powerful motor within the blender base, capable of producing a staggering 3.8 peak horsepower and 1,800-watts – this makes it one of the most powerful blenders ever.
Previous models of the same blender model had a three horsepower motor, so the extra power now means blending your favorite is now even more effortless. The additional 800 offers the ability to devour just about anything.
The Blendtec 725 model also comes with cooling technology that prevents overheating, which is very important for a powerful motor like this one. If the engine overheats, it shuts down automatically, protecting your motor and blades and enhancing the life of your blender.
The motor in the Blendtec 725 is a beast, but does its power match up to its performance? In short – it goes past its expectations. Their youtube channel, “Will It Blend?” is a popular series of videos that shows off their blender’s performance when filled with various items.
When it comes to ice, many blenders have a hard time breaking it down to snow – this isn’t the case with the Blendtec 725. The 725 will leave nice powdery snow in a matter of seconds for you to use with your favorite drinks or foods.
The blender, put to the smoothie test, performs very well and will blend frozen fruit, yogurt, or milk. The result is always a consistently creamy and smooth texture that you will love.
Design and Interface
One feature that we love on the Blendtec 725 is the touchscreen slider to set the speed. Instead of having a knob or set of buttons, the touchscreen slider makes it very easy to control the blender’s speed with the swipe of a finger.
All other blender functions are controlled using the same touchscreen interface, from the timer to speed settings. This also makes it very easy to clean – all you have to do is wipe the surface.
The blender has a brushed stainless steel base, with a nice balance and feel to it. The stainless steel makes it more durable and bulkier – this is good because when a blender like this works at such high power, you want it to be stable enough to remain on your countertop and durable to withstand the pressure from the motor.
Quality of Blades
The 725 comes with a single blade as with all of the edges from Blendtec. They are specifically made blunt, but thanks to the high power, they can quickly process ingredients while making them much safer and easy to clean.
Also, you will never have to worry about it losing sharpness – this unique blade has a unique shape and is made ten times stronger than other brands like Vitamix. They are also 80 percent thicker than standard blades – this is mostly because Blendtec blades are dull.
Blendtec 725 Automatic Settings
The automatic settings found in the 725 models include some of the same previous ones and newer ones as well:
- Clean setting
- Whole juice
- Hot soup
- Ice cream setting
The new clean setting now makes it even easier to clean your blender – all you need to do is add a little hot water and dishwashing liquid, and the blender handles the rest.
Having automatic settings like these allows you to set and forget it while running around and doing other things. The blender will let you know what cycle you’ve chosen on the digital screen, and it will also count down the blending time and turn off once done.
