Stumbled upon this link I thought I'd share:

http://simplyrecipes.com/recipes/tip_blender_and_mason_jar/

apparently, the threads on mason jars and most blenders are the same. I went and verified this with my very normal blender, and sure enough the bottom unscrews from the blender top and fits onto a mason jar just fine.

I think this would be a great way to reduce dishes if you blend things up often... I make my own refried black beans using the blender and this would keep them right in an easy to put in the fridge container!

Aye, it's great isn't it! We do this trick too. If you're ever in the market for buying a new one, take a mason jar with you to make sure it fits.

Probably where the person who came up with the idea for the "Magic Bullet" blender got it from.  Same concept, closed jar that seals at the bottom (well, its the top until you flip it).

Great tip.  I will be buying a new blender soon, and will be certain to take a mason jar with me when I compare makes/models!  That option would certainly make it more multi-purpose.

Not too long ago I was looking up the values of some canning jars that I bought and ran across one that had the writing upside down.  They said they believed that it was originally intended for use on a blender.

Hey! thanks for the post, as soon as I read it I ran out to the kitchen and tried to fit my wife's mason jar to the blender!
I'm wizzing and chopping away at whatever I could find, so in went primrose root's for the ducks, not that they wanted it.
She comes in with the usual what are you doing, and I'm like oh didn't you know? hehehe I thought all you mason jar people knew about this, Look wife no flying seeds!

anyways I was pleased with myself and the duck's got a green sludge seedy breakfast they all shook there head's at.

I gotta hit up the homestead forum more often, Out with the blender in with the mason wiz chopper!

yeah this is also great for blend and store items, like say nuts or herbs..just blend them up..shake off the tool, screw on the top and stick somewhere to store (nuts should be frozen or refrigerated though)..also keep things like breadcrumbs in a jar ..open to dry..and then whiz em up..

I just discovered this trick the other day and worried that the mason jar might break - I did break one the other day by trying to flick the excess chile sauce off a teaspoon inside the mason jar (it was a Ball brand): the teaspoon shattered the jar from the inside out and I was surprised at how easily it broke, and also how thin the glass was.

I've also shattered a plastic Osterizer closed jar that was specifically designed for attachment to a blender knife and base, this time by trying to blend up a small batch of cats claw, which are extremely hard!

Has anyone tried this trick and had the jar break? Or conversely has anyone done this a lot and never had any problems?

Rereading this post I realise I might have discovered a potential new career path for myself in product testing...
