KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender, Model KSB560WH

The unique pitcher shape, patented blade and powerful 0.9 horsepower motor provide fast, consistent blending that can crush a pitcher of ice within seconds. In fact, this model is the most powerful premium blender currently available. And you'll get to choose from an array of designer color finishes.

Features:

  • Patented stainless steel blade tines are positioned on four different planes for fast, thorough and consistent blending. Blade assembly is built into pitcher for easy handling and cleanup.
  • Commercial-quality, steel-reinforced coupler with 12 interlocking teeth provides direct transfer of motor power to the blade.
  • Built for continual blending. Advanced airflow design keeps blender cool during continued use.
  • Heavy, die-cast metal base ensures stable, quiet operation when blending. Plus, four rubber feet on wide base provide a nonslip, non-marring grip.
  • Pitcher contours direct ingredients into the blade for fast, thorough blending.
  • The 56-ounce one-piece pitcher is made of commercial-grade polycarbonate. It is scratch, stain and shatter-resistant. The handle features a soft inner grip for comfortable, nonslip control.
  • The pitcher's built-in drain holes eliminate food traps and the need to disassemble - which makes cleaning easier.
  • The Intelli-Speed™ controls and adjusts power to compensate for thicker mixtures.
  • Automatic Crush Ice Button. Pulses at staggered intervals at an optimal speed to increase blade contact with ice and improve crushing efficiency.
  • Smooth, seamless control pad wipes clean in an instant.

The design flaw I have found with using this for about 6 months now is that the nut used to hold the washer tight to the jar under the blades comes loose with use. Particularly when using the crush Ice feature, which is what I most bought this for.
If you buy this I recommend before first use that you put some threadlocker on the threads to keep it from loosening up during operation. Otherwise, it is very powerful, and has a great mixing design you can clearly see while operating. I may consider buying another Jar assembly and do just as I suggested on this one.

the design is a big departure from the types that you would take completely apart (jar from the washer and blades) to wash. It does seem this one is not supposed to come apart for cleaning.

On the last note, the rubber washer, under the blades, is quite flimsy and with too much torque, it will squeeze the washer out from under the blades thus allowing it too leak anyway.

I have one complaint. The blender is leaking when it works. This is from the first use! I bought this product for my beach house, it took me long time to get started, because I'm just go to this house on vacation on my holidays. And now? Can I still trade?

Pitcher Leaks out the bottom, Not a happy customer

By 

from Gresham,Or

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I contacted customer service regarding my problem when making smoothies and my only option was to buy a replacement pitcher, which was quite costly. I feel this is a powerful blender which gets the job done but it's not worth the hassles of the pitcher leaking. Quite frustrated with this product and do not recommend.

Very bad pitcher design

By 

from Bethpage, NY

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I got this blender a few years ago as a wedding present. We didn't have the room for it so it stayed in the box for a few years until we moved to a new house. So it is older and out of warranty, but it is basically a brand new blender.
After about a month of use making smoothies, if that, the pitcher started leaking. I found that the blade assemble would unscrew itself during use and the smoothie would start coming out the bottom of the pitcher. I've had this happen with other blenders that are designed to come apart for cleaning. When I finally contacted customer support, who were very helpful, I was told that this pitcher is not designed to come apart at all and that the whole pitcher would need to be replaced. I don't see how a replacement would help. The blades are on a threaded bolt. The problem is that the nut keeps coming loose. I would believe that this would happen to every pitcher since that's the way it was built. Maybe I did get a lemon, but I don't see how you can expect something that is bolted together to hold up when you put as much torque on it as this blender does.

Would Not Buy Again

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

Lasted about 2 years with minimal use. The pieces that connect on the pitcher and the motor wear very quickly and will stop blending. Very poor design. The pitcher also started getting cracks in it the first year and would leak.

The pitcher cracks almost immediately

I have gotten a warranty replacement on the pitcher and it also cracked. I wish they would make the pitcher out of glass.

Seems great, but no longevity

By 

from Laurel, MD, United States

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

We bought this blender thinking we were "upgrading" to a good blender to make smoothies etc. We have had three pitchers over the course of a couple of years, all of which started leaking out of the bottom. We were assured with the last one that it was "new and improved." I guess so - after it started leaking it was so durable that it also shredded the base of the blender. So now not even a new pitcher would be usable. Very disappointed. Always thought Kitchenaid was a reliable brand.

Wonderful

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I can not get over how fast this one works. My old one -different model did not crush ice cubes. I love making smoothies with it @ to get bread crumbs out of bread. Just love it.

Powerful mixer!

By 

from Ottawa, ON, Canada

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I finally caved and invested in a better, more expensive blender, after having gone through two Osters in two years. My husband and I make smoothies most mornings, and they contain either ice cubes or frozen fruit. We used to have to make them in two separate batches, and the old blender had a heck of a time, with the motor ending up making a burning plastic smell.

Since buying the KitchenAid blender, we no longer have this issue, and can make a double batch with ice, having no problem. It's a great size and a powerful blender. I like that the carafe is only one piece -- no need to disassemble and hand wash parts separately. Not only is the whole thing dishwasher safe, but we don't have any leaks from the bottom, like with our old one.

Good appliance

By 

from Montreal, QC, Canada

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I like my 5-speed blender especailly considering the price point. One thing is that the blender vibrates a lot when making smoothies (kale, no ice cubes) and causes the liquid to leak to the bottom through the stem of the blade.
