Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrea123 Love it!
I bought this over a month ago and have used it several times (about two to three times a week). I use it mostly for purees and such. The size is very convenient, especially when I only need to blend a small amount. It beats dragging out the big Wildside jar.
I haven't made any nut butters or hummus so I can't speak to how the Twister Jar does with those.
Note that the twister lid is really for thicker blends (nut butters and such). I used it a couple of times to puree some tomato sauce and the top does not hold in the liquid. It splashed all over the top of the blender. It does say in the description that you should use the gripper lid for thinner blends but I overlooked this beforehand. That was my bad. I switched to the gripper lid and all was right with the world. No splashes.
The Spectacula spatula is awesome. The shape really does allow me to get all the remnants out of the jar. I even use it for other types of equipment in my home. Love this thing.
Cleaning is a breeze. I haven't had to struggle to clean underneath the blade. I owned a Ninja for years and for some reason the Ninja seemed to be much harder to clean.
I do think the price is a bit high for this particular jar, but after owning a Ninja I see a huge difference in the quality of the blend from blendtec. I'm willing to pay it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lubs1 Great product
I bought the twister Jar few weeks ago and it's been great so far. I just throw frozen berries and get natural sorbet. No more cravings for the ice cream. It's great to use for anything that's too thick. Previously I have been using regular jars and it wouldn't work as well for thick mixtures but this jar does all the job.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AmbassadorT Functions great but...
I appreciate the size and multifaceted functionality of the twister jar. I am however, disappointed with the fact that it stained the second time I used it. For the jar to stain indicates a level of porosity that is of concern. No matter what I have tried the stain does not come out (even after 20 additional uses with food item not containing any yellow). All foods have also been organic so no chemicals or artificial ingredients.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bross cool idea, but it's a jar for cost of a ninja.
I bought this jar no more than a year ago and the internal connection from the base to the blade broke. I've had just as much luck with the wide side blender, but the spatula is cool, but I'm not paying $130 for a spatula.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sammi Great addition to my Blendtec!
I received my Blendtec a month ago as a gift and ordered the twister jar to allow for the making of nut butters and hummus. The twister jar works so well for smaller quantities of nut butters and hummus. What a genius idea of the twister jar and it has proven to be a great addition to my Blendtec.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary9 What can't I make now?
I finally have a complete set of jars: the Twister, the Mini-Twister and the Wildside
I use my Blendtec every day make protein shakes, but I also make hummus, sauces, batters, nut milk, dressings, and dips using whichever of the three sizes of jars is right for the task.
I made bean fudge over the holidays using my Mini-Twister jar since I didn't have the Twister jar yet, and I thought the Wildside jar was just too big. The fudge was good, but it hard to make in the Mini-Twister so that's when I decided I needed the Twister jar too.

I've only made hummus once in it but it was great!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JoanieK First batch of almond butter
Usually there's a learning curve to these things, but the blendtec twister jar worked like a charm on my first batch of Organic roasted almond butter. I'm happy!
Of course it's a Blendtec! Wouldn't expect any other result
