KitchenAid Blue Willow 5-Speed Blender, Model KSB560BW

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.

Clearly cannot withstand daily use

By emzieclaire

from Trinidad and Tobago

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

Bought this blender about three years ago and seldom used it. I started making fruit smoothies daily as part of a healthy diet and got great results for about 3 weeks. Until that fateful morning when the mixer revealed a major flaw. Due to daily use, the gears have grated down and no longer line up with each other. In my opinion, a blender should be able to withstand daily use. Huge disappointment from the Kitchen Aid brand as I their stand mixers work well and display the quality associated with the brand. Will be sure to think twice before putting my money on this brand.

Best Blender I've Used!

By Holly2

from houghton lake, mi

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I registered and received this blender as a wedding gift. I noticed a big difference just turning it on for the first time. Compared to other blenders I've used/owned, you could hear the difference in the motor. The first thing I made after cleaning it, was margaritas. The ice was completely crushed and smooth, there were none of those little ice chunks like I've noticed with other blenders.

Extremely Loud and Shakey

By sarah1216

from Undisclosed

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

This blender is extremely loud and shakes a great deal. I understand that it is a blender and therefore not a quiet product, but this is one of the loudest blenders I have ever heard. It is so loud that sometimes I have to leave the room in order to not get a headache. If I am trying to watch TV or something and my husband decides to use the blender, there is no point trying to do what I was before he started. You can't hear anything at all while the blender is going. You can't even hear when shouting (we have tried this). It is also the shakiest blender I have ever seen. If it is not held down with quite a bit of pressure it rocks really bad. Also if it is not held down with enough pressure it grinds the bottom of the pitcher so there is black dust everywhere and is then even louder and harder to get to sit correctly so none of this happens. I wouldn't recommend getting this blender.

Good blender

By K A G

from Toronto, ON, Canada

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

I bought this blender to make smoothies with frozen fruit. I have since learned that it requires a lot of extra liquid to be added or the blades won't move. I was expecting it to be strong enough to handle frozen fruit but it needs some help. This might not be the fault of the blender but just the way it is with frozen fruit. Also the rubber lid loses it's shape in the dishwasher.

Pretty good Blender

By Tify777

from Cape Coral, FL, United States

Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - White Finish:

Love the look. Could use a little more power but I guess I know how to chop things in little pieces now. The blade rust at screw junction the first time I used it?!? I was a little disappointed as I dried it right away. I guess some of it was for a great cause, breast cancer, so it works great for soups and smoothies.
