Product Details

KitchenAid Custom Metallic Series 5 Speed Blender, Model KSB580CR

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 a selection of metallic 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 base is plated a minimum of five times for a durable, corrosion-resistant finish with a deep, lustrous appearance.
  • 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've had my blender for about two years now and it has worked very well up until recently. The plastic above and below the handle has slowly cracked and will leak anytime I blend liquids. When blending liquids the top leaks as well when you first turn it on... enough that it will spray on you if you dont put a towel over it. I am a little disappointed as KitchenAid has always been pretty good to me. I'm hoping that they make a glass replacement pitcher.

              I've been using this blender to grind up and puree food to make it easier for my wife to eat. It does a very good job but a small amount of food always gets stuck in the bottom under the blades and is impossible to get out until the container is washed.I wish the blades could be removed.

                    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.

                          I bought this to replace the old model I had home. It is wonderful for blending soups! The option for speed makes it better for me to create soup just the way I want it.

                                                        My husband bought it as a gift (without asking), but seemed to think the reviews were favorable. Perhaps compared to other blenders of similar price it's good, but I don't know. I immediately checked America's Test Kitchen's blender reviews and found this blender smack at the bottom of their "not recommended" list. That was discouraging. So far it works ok, but not as well as I would like for a blender that cost over $100. It's quite loud; it starts up really suddenly, splashing ingredients up onto the lid; it requires stopping and pushing ingredients down to get everything to blend. More cons than pros, for me.

                                                              Bought my new blender a few months ago for the purpose of making smoothies. I use it approximately every other day. Not once have I had any issues! It blends through everything I've thrown at it. So glad I invested in this product!
