That metal thing on your blender base that spins the blade? That’s a socket. Machined for a precision fit with the motor shaft, it efficiently transfers power to the blade. This steel-on-steel attachment results in lower vibration, reduced noise and increased reliability. Many blenders avoid using ball bearings to drive down cost. Blendtec uses custom designed carbon-steel sealed ball bearings. This reduces friction, diminishes noise and increases the life of the motor. Your Blendtec is engineered to keep itself cool. But in the unlikely event the motor does start to heat up too much, its computer brain will shut down the machine until it cools. Keeping it safe, sound and ready to blend your next masterpiece.
