About Blendtec

Blendtec is a division of K-TEC. In 1975, Tom Dickson, the company founder, revolutionized the way homemakers would forever mill wheat into flour. By combining a versatile vacuum cleaner motor with a rotor and stator micronetic-milling chamber, Tom was able to quickly and efficiently mill wheat. The K-TEC Kitchen Mill provided the infant company the start it needed. Years later as the smoothie revolution was heating up companies turned to Blendtec to develop high performing, durable blenders for commercial use. Blendtec introduced a number of innovations that would change the way the world blends. Some of these ways include the most powerful blenders, electronically controlled blenders, programmable blend cycles, and in-counter motors. The response to Blendtecs products has been great! You can now see Blendtec blenders, dispensers, and mixers in some of the best restaurants, juice bars, ice-cream parlors and gyms all over the world. As the popularity of these products has grown, customers have inquired how they can get our equipment for their home.
