KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - KSB560MC

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.

    So far I have mainly used this to made iced cappuccino's and it has been flawless. I make at least 3 a day for the last 3 weeks using standard ice cubes and it shredded it perfect. I've also made smoothies using frozen slices of banana's and strawberries and it goes through them like nothing. The only other was I've used it was to chop pickles to put in a tuna sandhwich meat and it worked great at that too. I just dropped pickles one by one in the hole on top and presto! Got finely chopped pickles! I do have to say I at times have smelled the motor (like a slight burning smell) when initially crushing the ice but I'm slowing starting not smell anything anymore. Maybe it just needed to break in. The motor is loud but how quiet do you really expect a blender to be? It's doing was it was meant to do. So far it was worked great for me and I love it!

    The first few times I used this blender I would have given it 5 starts. It has a good amount of power, I like the size of pitcher & ease of cleaning it, as well as how it looks.

    However, after using it the first few times everytime I blend something it leaks. The blade seems to be loose, though we've tighten it several times it still leaks all over everytime I use it.

    It does an okay job at blending, though it's certainly not smooth, but I mainly make fruit smoothies with it & a little chunky is okay.

    Overall I'm disappointed.

    Great smoothie maker. A little loud,but accomplishes making smoothies with ease. Ice is not a challenge. Appearance and size are great. Searched the net and this was the best price I found considering shipping etc. I would recommend the product and Abt.

    Comments about KitchenAid Green Apple 5-Speed Blender:

    This is definitely an efficient blender. When I make a shake the liquid does tend to go all the way up the sides and I have to scrape it down which is a bit annoying. Nevertheless, I am happy with this product.

                Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - Red Finish:

                I was looking for a replacement for my cheap blender that developed a leak and was a nuisance to use. I didn't need a four hundred dollar powerhouse to crush iphones, just a good, reliable blender that I can count on. I was torn between this one and Ninja 1100. After some research I decided to pick up this KitchenAid and I'm really glad I did.
                It's perfect for me.
                Here is what I need a blender for: make smoothies, milk shakes, ice drinks and frozen drinks (primarily margaritas).
                KitchenAid does it with ease. I love the dedicated "crush ice" button that automatically pulses blender's contents at highest setting. 15-20 pulses and half a pitcher of ice turns into quarter a pitcher of snow. Nice, flaky snow. It goes through frozen fruit without any hiccups and I don't have to use microwave to help it. KitchenAid creates a vortex inside it's pitcher guiding contents into the blade and crushing everything to a smooth liquid.
                For some reason KitchenAid doesn't advertise it, but this blender has a 720 Watt motor. Sure, Ninja is more powerful at 1100 watts, but it doesn't create a vortex, it has a stick with blades in the middle of the pitcher, so you really have to add a lot of fruits/veggies to make it work properly. Want a glass of milk shake? You're out of luck with Ninja, you have to make at least 2.

                I hate even standing by a kitchen sink, so a blender had to be easy to clean. KitchenAid is - add a drop of dishwashing liquid to the pitcher and some water, put it on "stir" setting, then rinse. You're done.
                Cleaning Ninja 1100 is not that simple - you have to take out that stick with blades and wash it manually, cutting yourself in the process. And you will cut yourself, even if you are extra careful, those blades are wicked sharp.

                To me, a blender had to be reliable and well-engineered - I don't plan to buy a new blender every couple of years. KitchenAid's motor base and pitcher base coupling is all metal, covered with plastic that dampens sound. Ninja's couplings are plastic one the pitcher and metal on the base - much less reliable.
                Also, KitchenAid is assembled in USA. Not made, some parts are probably from China, but motor seems to be US-made. Nowadays, to slap "made in USA" label on the box, manufacturer has to produce every single part in the USA. So even if only the power cord was made in China, you couldn't use "made in USA" label on the box.

                Blender is loud (it's a blender, come on), but it's not painful to use. My old cheap one screamed like a jet during take-off and I was reluctant to use it early in the morning.

                One thing that I would change about this KitchenAid is the pitcher cap - it doesn't sit tightly enough, so I have to hold it on the highest settting with a full pitcher. I don't mind, it doesn't have to run for long on the highest setting anyway.

                Overall, it's a great blender and I don't see why I need to buy Vitamix or Blendtec, KitchenAid works perfectly fine. It breezes through ice and frozen fruits, easy to clean and well-made.
                If you are on a fence, get it and try it yourself. After all, you have 30 days to return it if you don't like it, Abt makes all returns easy and hassle-free.

                Service and delivery comments:

                If I need appliances or electronics, I always go to Abt. It's the best retail experience I've ever had, wonderful store, great and knowledgeable personnel.

                It's worked great so far. I don't use it much, but when I do I experience zero problems. I expect this to last for many years. It is a little loud, but that's to be expected from a blender. Plus it only lasts a few seconds, so not that big of a deal.
