I am very pleased with this product. I was looking for a unit that could. Handle ice and run quietly. This unit does both.

It was twice louder than a $59.00 Kitchen aid, so I just sent it back. I contacted the company and they replied saying that it is the it's made...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best (in this price range) Dec 19 2011
By ChicagoCPA - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
<Update - 1 year later and about 50 very thick smoothies and 50 pancake batches later and it is still working as well as it did on day one. I discovered by accident that the inner blade attachment pops out rather easily for cleaning, just give is a slight squeeze where the 2 lips that hold it in place are. I generally take it apart and put everything in the dishwasher when finished. Sometimes my smoothies get a bit too thick and I have to give the motor a rest because it starts to smell a bit like it is being over worked, but that is my fault, not its fault. Other blenders probably would have just turned off long before then and I would be forced to make much thinner smoothies. I'd rather decide for myself when it is being overworked rather than have it turn off automatically at 80% of the maximum force.>

I am replacing a Cuisinart CB600SA that we picked up at Costco about 10 years ago, I think, which I recently broke by dropping it.

This 1,000 watt Krups is far, far quieter, more powerful, bigger capacity, locking lid, dishwasher safe, ingenious locking jar bottom (you must turn the pitcher up side down to remove the bottom).

It starts out slow every time and builts up speed (no more stuff spraying out of the blender if you forget to put the top on).

I spent a lot of time researching and seriously considered spending 500 on a Vitamix or Blendtec, but the more I read, the more I wanted a blender that was designed to spin more slowly with thicker gauge windings and higher torque. The V. and B. machines are designed to spin at high speeds without a lot of torque and will shut off for a very long time if the machine thinks you are overheating the motor (easy to do when the wires are thinner). I do not plan on turning whole vegetables into juice and I do not wanting it constantly turning off on my trying to make smoothies thick enough to eat with a spoon. I am also very reluctant to purchase a machine that will be that loud. Why spend 500 when 150 will get the job done quite nicely if not better?

This is a well made blender that should last me 20 years easily (assuming I do not drop it) (but after reading some of these other reviews a year later, perhaps 20 years is unlikely?)

Blender arrived and works excellent. Blender looks even nicer in person. I will buy from this vendor again. Has a nice feature where it starts slow and speeds up over a few seconds so that it does not splash. Automatically shuts itself off if it jams so it does not burn itself out. Professional appearance and good quality thick glass, very generous volume capacity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Die Cast Blender, You Should Get This Blender Nov. 9 2011
By Pinky - Published on Amazon.com
My old Cuisinart CBT-1000 PowerEdge 1000-Watt Die-Cast Blender with 64-Ounce Jar died so needed a replacement. I was looking for a Die Cast Blender that can make smoothie for me and my husband every day. My husband loves super cold smoothie so we put ice in it. This Krups KB790 Blender has a better look, and it's very quiet. I am so glad I get Krups blender this time. It's highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Cadillac" of Blenders March 18 2012
By C. S. DeMore - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic blender. I had about given up finding something I'd like. It is quiet--REALLY! And so effective I can virtually whip skim milk with it when I'm making a shake for my diet. My husband has enjoyed making milk shakes. It looks great on the counter top too! Cleaning could be an issue but I do just give it a very thorough rinsing in hot sudsy water and I don't take it apart every time--don't want to tangle with those very sharp blades too often as I can be a klutz!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty awesome blender Feb. 24 2012
By Grover - Published on Amazon.com

I primarily use this for my morning smoothies (chard, spinach, frozen berries, yogurt, etc) and it does a good job. I wish the blades were a little sharper or that there were different blades available, it sometimes leaves the spinach/chard a little fibery instead of chopped up finely, but I'm pretty happy. It's quiet, love the nice big jar, it fits all of my ingredients with no issues.
