Rated 3 out of 5 by Avidshopper Just average
I really expected more from Kitchen Aid. Is a trusted brand of mine, I had high expectations, reviews were great. I have used it to make salsa, margaritas, and smoothies but I was not impressed. This blender performance is just average. When "As Seen On TV" products out perform top brand names then the product merits average reviews and nothing more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Smoothie making mama Very good value for the price
We have been using this blender for about a month and have been very satisfied. It blends our fruit/veggie smoothies into a very uniform consistency, it cleans up so easily and seems pretty durable. It is obviously not going to have the horsepower of the vitamix or blendtec, but I think it is a really good less expensive option!

Rated 5 out of 5 by skiatd1 Great Blender at a Great Price!
We bought this blender a month ago and have been using it twice a day to make smoothies. It does a great job of quickly and quietly blending all the ingredients into a smooth concoction. It can crush frozen fruit or ice without leaving chunks. It has a fair amount of power and it is very easy to clean due to its one piece pitcher design. The buttons also are covered with a single membrane making any spills a quick clean up. We had purchased this blender about a month and a half ago and experienced terrible shaking and the blender "walking" across the counter on its own (as noted in a couple of reviews below as well). After talking with kitchen aid customer service we determined this was not normal and were able to exchange it for our current model which as stated above works wonderfully. Also there is a cord wrap feature on the bottom which we use. This doesn't wrap all of the cord for storage but if you leave your blender on the counter it contains the amount you don't need.

I got this blender to replace an Oster. The KitchenAid is so much better. Crushes ice with ease. Blends anything I put in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by K fantastic performance and easy to clean
I bought this blender as a replacement for a very pricey blender, and the performance of the 5-speed diamond blender has far exceeded my expectations. As a mom, I try to "sneak" things like kale into smoothies. The blender completely blends everything together so well that my husband and child can't even tell there are leafy greens in their drinks. It also makes perfect crushed ice. My absolute favorite part of this blender is that it is only one piece plus the lid. There are no seals or parts that have to be taken apart to be cleaned or that leak if you don't have it put together quite right. I'm able to put the entire blender in the dishwasher (with the pitcher on the bottom rack), which makes it so easy to clean up. I thought I would dislike the plastic pitcher compared to my old glass pitcher, but it is so much lighter, which makes it easier to use and to put away to store. Overall I love this blender and would recommend it to anyone.
