The efficiency that comes with using a blender tamper has rendered it my best blending companion!
That’s why Tamperla™ went on the drawing board to design a clever tool that can fit all blenders.
I will be breaking down this brilliant innovation and help you understand why it is something more than just a blender tamper!
What is a Blender Tamper Stick?
Even before we delve deeper into the guide, let’s first ensure we are on the same page by understanding what is a tamper stick.
Tamper tools are relatively new to most people in the blending world, especially Blendtec users. Their world has the Blendtec twister!
If you are just an occasional blender user, then you might wonder why the heck you need a tamper. It just looks like a rod anyway! However, for the regular blender users, a tamper stick is a vital accessory.
Blender tampers does the magic of removing air pockets in your blend by pushing the ingredients down the blades.
As a result, the final product becomes smoother and with a more desirable consistency.
But, there is MORE…
Unlike the traditional Vitamix tamper stick, Tamperla™ blender stick does more than just pushing down the vegetables and fruits to remove the air pockets.

10 Reasons to Get the Tamperla™ Blender Stick
So you have just finished blending your strawberry shortcake smoothie. Or maybe a banana almond smoothie breakfast treat; if you are my twin!
And the next stop is in your kitchen cabinet drawers. You fetch for a spoon as you curse why the two yards walk and a stretch seems like a walking marathon!
You scoop your sweet smoothie into a glass and sit on a cozy couch to enjoy the healthy breakfast.
But wait, your blender jar, a tamper stick, a spoon, and maybe another spoon are now dirty. Some of them laying down there in the sink, waiting for you to do the DIRTY work! I doubt you don’t loathe the extra dish cleaning time!
And did I mention a portion of your breakfast treat might have accidentally dripped onto the counter while scooping?
1. Inbuilt Scoop for Your Blending Needs!
However, the Tamperla™ Blender Stick comes with a built-in scoop! It has been ingeniously designed to help you scoop the blended mixture from the jar into your drinking glass.
I’ve found this scoop really handy in all my blending experiences!
What’s more about the scoop is the fact that it doubles as a half teaspoon measurer. If you are an almond butter lover like me, this measurement comes handy when measuring coconut oil for a smooth butter blend!
The brilliant scoop also helps with doing the testing and tasting, as I check whether the blend is consistent enough! Just dropping the tamper into the jar, scoop, drop it on your hand, and taste! Such a time saver!
By itself, the scoop is literary a very versatile part of the Tamperla™ Blender Stick. And the fact that it can perfectly fit on any blender, whether you are using Blendtec or Vitamix means that it is a must-have kitchen accessory!
And hey! You can use this scoop to do other things around the kitchen. Like stir soup on the stove, scoop jam out of that deep jam container that is telling you it is time to visit the store! Remember, I have not mentioned about peeling the skin of avocados.
2. A Squeegee Edge on Top of The Scoop!
Tamperla™ Blender Tamper Stick gives you a squeegee end on top of the scoop. After preparing my almond butter there are the treats that remain stuck in the blender jar. I bet we all want to get it out.
Sssh, you can’t say it here, but I have at one time contemplated using my finger! But not until I discovered a clever way of squeegeeing it out.
How else can you squeegee the product out?
You got it! Using the squeegee end of the tamper stick and getting every bit of the blended mixture into the glass.
The squeegee edge will also help in pushing down that piece of veggie that is stuck at the top of the blender. It has been awesomely designed for durability, while it works to serve our blending experiences in multiple ways.
Gone are the days when scooping the blended mixture from the jar would end up making our kitchen countertop messy!
3. A Self-Standing Blending Companion.
Why else should you wonder whether the Tamperla™ Blender Tamper Stick is something for you? You all know that moment as you are preparing a breakfast smoothie in a rush! The mess on the counter? The utensils that get dirty?
Not to mention the likelihood of finding ants crawling around your kitchen counter to feast on what stuck there after the round Vitamix tamper rolled over it.
In the past, after using a blender stick, I had two options: put it in the sink or place it on the countertop. The latter would end up getting our counter dirty and messy. Putting it in the sink would mean that I can’t use it again.
Tamperla™ Blender Stick has a self-standing base that you will find really handy! It is an innovation that we all need in our blending experience.
Today, I can use the tamper to scoop the ingredients, push them down the jar as I blend, break the air pockets as they form, and scoop the mixture out without messing my counter or getting any other utensil dirty!
4. A Drip Trench for a Clean Blending Moment.
I’m not a clean freak, but hey, I can’t stand a dirty kitchen! I always want the surfaces clean. You never know, when you will return there tired, and a messy kitchen can spoil an already messed up mood!
Tamperla™ has incorporated a drip trench in the blender tamper stick to ensure that you can blend your banana oatmeal breakfast smoothie without getting even one drop of the blended shake dripping onto your counter.
I would just say that you will longer have to endure a messy blending experience. No more sticky countertop! No more awkward quick walks as you rush for the kitchen towel!
5. You No Longer Need Your Tea/Tablespoon while Blending!
I already mentioned the half teaspoon measurement that doubles as a spatula scoop. Don’t get me wrong, there is another scoop on the opposite side of the tamper stick!
We all have to measure those small but very essential ingredients that need to go into our blender jars.
For me, it’s always coconut oil, honey, or protein powders. However, it can be olive oil, chia seeds, vinegar, or any other essential oils and ingredients that need to be measured in proportions to enhance our recipes.
With the Tamperla™ Blender Tamper Stick TBSP/TSP scoop, I no longer need to dig into the drawers for a spoon. And no more working with estimates!
The designer ingeniously engraved very shallow line that represents where a full teaspoon will fill – just halfway down the scoop. This scoop was made to measure exactly one tablespoon for your blending and baking needs.
What makes it even more convenient are the lightly embossed TBSP/TSP marks that will serve as a reminder!
6. No More Spatulas and Scoop Spoons.
I thought I should remind you that you no longer need a spatula when scooping your blended product out of the jar! I hate that I have repeated this!
With it, I can pull out thick mixtures like almond butter, especially almond butter! But I think you might need it when scooping out ice cream and thick smoothies.
I believe it is time to return your silicone flexible spatula in the drawer!
7. A Handle That Doubles as Half The Shot Glass.
The standard shot glass measures 1.5 ounces, while the Tamperla™ Tamper Stick’s handle had a built-in mini-cup that measures 0.75 of an ounce.
This part of the blender stick will come handy when you need accurate measurements of blending liquid ingredients. It can be milk, water, tequila, or anything that needs precise measurement.
NOTE: The blender stick stands with this side of the handle. Be sure not to measure sticky liquids like honey to avoid messing your kitchen counter.
8. EZ’R Grip Handle That Really Grips!
The last time I checked the Vitamix tamper, I saw a very thick round stick that can easily fall off my hands. While the universal blender tamper looked like a rod that you can simply confuse the handle end for the tamper stick end!
However, that isn’t the case with the Tamperla™ blender stick. The handle will not only measure half of an ounce, make the stick stand on its own, but will also offer you with a sturdy grip that will make your entire blending adventure an amazing moment!
So if you are like me, and likes blending think concoctions like banana oatmeal smoothies and almond butter, be sure that the tamper won’t slip off your hands.
9. One Stick for Multiple Blenders!
Thanks to the double collar that has made the Tamperla™ Blender Tamper Stick the most versatile tamper on the market.
The tamper sticks come in three different sizes, but I was mainly intrigued by the middle sized one. Tamperla™ calls it the Low Pro Tamper Stick. It fits on all the Vitamix containers except the 64oz classic/standard jar.
Thus, the Tamperla™ Low Pro Stick is the ideal tamper for the 64oz low profile container. And as an icing on the cake, it is also the only tamper stick to work in a 32oz wet, 32oz dry, 48oz jar, and even the 40 oz Vitamix blender jars.
These are 5 jars, with just one tamper stick! Keep in mind that there is the Tamperla™ Classic tamper stick that will fit the 64oz classic jar along with any other Vitamix jars that we have mentioned above, except the 64oz low profile jar.
Tamperla™ Shortest was designed for all the other blender users that see greatness outside Vitamix blenders.
Whether you use Blendtec, Oster, Hamilton Beach, Kitchenaid, Cuisinart, Omega, Omni, Centaur, Waring, Breville, Bosch, K-Tec, and Ninja plus all the other generic blenders, the short tamper stick will work for you.
If your Vitamix tamper broke and you are on the look for a replacement, you know that finally, there is something durable that will do more than what you have asked!
I don’t see why you would want to get two sticks, not unless you have a Vitamix blender plus a jar or blender from another brand and you love it that way!
10. Comes with an Anti-Roll Design.
The anti-roll design of the Tamperla™ Blender Tamper Stick ensures that it can’t roll and fall on the floor.
Say you forget to place it on the counter by the self-standing base, you are assured that it won’t roll over. Unlike the Vitamix Tamper and all the other universal tampers in the market, Tamperla™ stays exactly where you have placed it!
No more cursing as you bend to pick a blender tamper stick that has fell on the floor! No more Google searches for a Vitamix tamper holder and replacement blender tamper due to accidental breakages!

Will Tamperla Blender Tamper Stick fit My Blender Jar?
You might still doubt whether this blender tamper stick will fit your blender jar! Maybe your Vitamix tamper stick broke and you are looking for a tamper stick replacement.
For Blendtec users like me, you may have discovered that the Blendtec twister jar is not as efficient as the manufacturer claim, and you need a permanent aftermarket solution for your blending needs.
The great news is that Tamperla™ designed three tamper stick sizes that will virtually fit any traditional Blender jar. I have listed the 3 different tamper stick sizes below for your reference:
1. Tamperla™ Short – Designed to fit any Blendtec jar along with most of the other blender brands in the market EXCEPT all the Vitamix blender containers.
That is, it will fit in Oster, Ninja, Blendtec, or Black+Decker jars plus all the generic blender brands that you can find at Wal-mart, Target, and most retail stores.
2. Tamperla™ Low Pro – Designed to fit the 64oz Low Profile Vitamix container – you know, the jar that fits under a standard cupboard! Plus the 48oz wet jar, 32oz wet jar, 40oz jar, and 32oz dry jar.
The Low Pro stick WON’T fit the 64 Ounce classic/standard Vitamix container or any other blender jars that you can find in the market.
3. Tamperla™ Classic – Designed to fit the 64oz classic/standard Vitamix jar along with the 48oz wet jar, 400z jar, 32oz wet jar, and 32oz dry jar.
The Classic tamper stick WON’T fit the 64oz Low Profile Vitamix jar or any other blender jars that you can find in the market.
I hope you didn’t get confused! But in case you have a Vitamix jar and the explanation wasn’t clear, please drop your comment below, and I will help you make an informed and permanent decision.
