Product Description

Square BPA free Jar, made from Eastman Tritan Copolyester

Virtually indestructible with the blades manufactured in Japan. This square mixing jug is graduated up to 1.5L and holds 2.25L of liquid if filled to the top. Recommended maximum volume for blending 1.5L. I regularly use mine up to 1.7L and it works great. The square shaped jug makes getting all your food out quickly easy and cleaning a breeze. It comes complete with lid and tamper. To fit Omniblend 1, 3 and 5 units and will also fit most vitamix models.

BPA stands for “Bis-phenol A” which is used in Polycarbonate container production. BPA has been found in containers. The container material can leech if exposed to hot temperatures.

Everything leeches, especially your HDPE or PETE water bottles, your milk bottles or 1 gallon containers, and of course your glass containers, etc. But your glass container has been proven over time to be very safe. Plastic has not been proven at all. Given another 20 to 30 years, and we should know more about plastic interacting with food and whether it is safe or not.
Plastic does not necessarily leech all the time, but generally increases greatly with increasing temperatures. E.g. when your HDPE drinking water bottle is left in the car for a while and you come back to take a sip, you then will taste this funny bitter-weird tasting flavour in the water.

Do not microwave your container, not even if you have the BPA-FREE Co-polyester Eastman Tritan (TM) Container, and although dishwasher safe, I wouldn’t put my $120 container into the dishwasher. Just rinse it out. It will last much longer.
