Mason Jars Can Be Used as Mini Blender Jars

Perhaps this is why they call them “Blender Jars” — the thread on the bottom of the jar is the same as a mason jar. That means you can remove the blade assembly from your large blender jar and attach it to a mason jar for small recipes, quick smoothies, baby food, etc.

If you’ve already got a blender, that’s just a few dollars in mason jars. Otherwise, you could shell out $50 for a magic bullet:

    I can actually say, and mean it without “age-old” arrogance,
    I AM Old Enough To Know This:)

    But sadly, Kerr sealers are no longer available in Canada, and the alternatives do not have the ideal seal Kerr does…leaving canning/jar tumbler users like me saying, “Only in the U.S. of A., eh? Such a Bloomin’ Pity!”

      You should cross the border one day for a holiday and stock up on those mason jars, or Amazon.com. :)

    I just finished cleaning up a crazy mess of coconut oil, olive oil, and garlic. I will be finding this mixture in my kitchen for weeks, I’m sure. In theory, the canning jar idea is fantastic. But canning jars don’t have tabs on them that keep them from unscrewing themselves from the blender ring like the actual blender jar does. I vaguely remember having this issue once before when trying to use a canning jar. At least the kitchen smells good…

      Well, maybe a firm hand on the jar to prevent that in the future? I’m still a bit skeptical but I’m willing to test it… with simple tap water! If it works, then I’ll move on to other things.

    Great secret! My daughter is always wanting to make smoothies-for-one. What a no-fuss, easy solution.

    My husband has been wanting one of those Magic bullets or one of those Ninja blenders for a long time. I have been putting off actually getting one of those and as of tonight seeing this, I will NEVER buy one. I was actually giddy to see this lol. Sorry Hubby ;)

    Chad – I was searching for info on mini blender jars to make baby food for Henry and found your post. Can I just say how excited I was to see this and to add to the excitement that I knew the poster? Awesome! Hope you are all doing well!

      Haha, that’s great Steph! That has happened a few times now; somebody I know is searching for something and they coincidentally find the answer on my site.

      I hope you guys are doing well!!

      It’s easy to try. Most Osterizer blenders will work. If the blender container has a removable base, unscrew it and try it on a jar. If it fits, then it will work. If it does not fit or if the blender container has a non-removable base, then no. Always put the rubber sealing ring against the jar rim. Caution: a jar may not be as sturdy as the blender container and could break if used for crushing ice, etc.

    Did anybody actually try this? It doesn’t work with my blender and the multiple sizes of mason jars that we have.

    I’ve been doing this for years on my Osterizer blender and using
    ATLAS/ MASON jars.
    It works perfect on an Osterizer blender. I thought this was common knowledge!!! Who needs a NINJA or a MAGIC BULLET???!!!

    I make mixed blended “RED NECK MARGARITAS & DAIQUIRISi” drinks in them all the time. Great at parties for making individual ones.
    I also stick a label on them so people don’t get confused who drink is who’s.
    Key is using the Osterizer base, rubber grey ring and of course the chopper bit.
    YOU DO HAVE TO HOLD ONTO THE JAR WHEN BLENDING!!!
    The actual Osterizer blender glass has 2 glass wings that hold it in place where as Mason Jars DO NOT!!!.

    It costs you nothing if you buy some CLASSICO PASTA SAUCE as they come packed in ATLAS/MASON jars (Smart Canadian Company to package their sauce in a reusable glass jar like a MASON).
    I also go to garage sales and SOS stores to buy up old Osterizer blenders for the bottom bits. I understand also that you can but these bits online from parts suppliers.

    Have fun
