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 for frozen smoothies, baby purees, milkshakes
Comments about KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender - Red Finish:
I have used this blender 2+ times per week for 3 years and it was amazing! I cannot believe some of the things it could blend. Ice, frozen berries/fruit no problem, thick smoothies, milkshakes, baby purees, soaked almonds. However, this morning, during our normal smoothie blend, my blender made a funny noise, stopped, and the connection between the pitcher and bottom piece completely warped and was smoking. Since I use a blender so often and with so many varying types of food, I'm not surprised this happened. Overall, the kitchen aid was fantastic and I loved how it worked while we had it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

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.

Has a motor like a rider mower, cuts through everything, and is easy to clean. A terrific investment!

I'm very happy with all my KitchenAid appliances. They are sturdy, perform reliably and look great on my counter.
Clearly cannot withstand daily use
from Trinidad and Tobago
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Loving it so far! It does blast stuff all over the lid and top of the blender every time..no keeping the lid clean, but it really works well.
Best Blender I've Used!
from houghton lake, mi
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.
