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...

The Best (in this price range) Dec 19 2011
By CPAChicago - 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?)

Krups KB790 Dec 30 2011
By B&L - Published on Amazon.com

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.

Krups, Not Just For Coffee Anymore Sept. 8 2012
By Daly Mavorneen, - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this blender after assessing every problem I'd ever had with every blender I've ever owned, after 3 days of online research, and after subscribing to Consumer Reports website (well worth it). I've owned 4 blenders in 12 years. While that may seem an acceptable turn-over, the cost was over $200.00 and the quotidian performance, never more than mediocre. My gripes ranged from structural severities to personal peccidillos. The pre-ground flax seeds never really "blended," preferring to sink to the bottom of all concoctions. The ice never really blizzarded into "snow." And the hummus? Just a thought that never materialized because the chickpeas and tahini never mixed into a suspended, whipped delight; instead I got a soggy, lumpy, ingredient-separate mess. Also, there was never any depreciable difference among the many speeds, other than noise. My Oster 6812-001 Core 16-Speed Blender was a joke as far as speeds were concerned. It was more "permanent hearing loss" and less Daft Punk song ("Harder Better Faster Stronger"). See my review, "Listen to the reviews that tell you this blender is badly made...."

All 4 blenders went out with whimper. The Oster's glass jar simply fell over in the sink one day and cracked clean in half. The KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender leaked like crazy, no matter how tight the o-rings and sprockets. The Waring Commercial Bar Blender artlessly stopped 13 months after purchase. And the Cuisinart SPB-600MP SmartPower Deluxe Die Cast Blender, Metallic Pink, sputtered out in a scary heated apoplexem less than 3 months after arriving home.

Now, the KRUPS KB790 Motor Tecnik Blender with Stainless Steel blades, Die Cast, has come home with me to stay. It's beauty: quiet and muffled blending, so 7:00 a.m. smoothies don't deafen you before you're fully awake; blue backlit buttons, rubberized and barely raised from the surface, like you're entering an effortless command on a bridge panel on the Star Trek Enterprise; a 60-ounce (5 soda cans) borosilicate glass jar that, full to the brim, has already tipped over twice in the sink without breaking, and is more resistant to thermal shock than any other common glass; the counter footprint is a discreet 7" x 8". Krups blender is also accompanied by a gorgeous, clay-laminate shiny cookbook of artistic food photography and distinctly European sensiblities (lentil milkshake, melon smoothie with anisette infusion, anyone?).

It's talent: "fluffy," snow-cone ice in seconds rendered by it's own "ice-crush" nub-button; thick, luscious, packed smoothies with every ingredient suspended in the liquid (no strawberry and flax seeds on the bottom of the glass); glorious, whipped hummus rivaling store-bought mixures; 5 clearly discernable speeds used for different food textures ("perfumed crepes" batter came out like air!); and finally, my Montel Williams-Vitamix-Ninja blender infomercial-stoked desires have been sated by being able to actually "stealth" vegetables into shakes and dice chives into tiny slivers. There is no better blender in this price range.

I would like to address one "problem" that other reviewers have mentioned a great deal: that of the "air bubble" that forms and effectively stops the blending process. This phenomenon does occur, but ONLY if you have put too much food into the blender too fast. You can't simply fill the 60-ounce container to the top and turn on the blades. While you do not need liquid to blend raw materials (another feature far superior to every blender I've owned), you must blend smaller amounts at a time. This is true of ALL blenders that are consumer products and not truly "commerical" industrial machines.

I intend to enjoy this blender for 13 years, one more year than all the other blenders lasted, in my life, combined.

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.

Best Blender Ever! March 21 2012
By dashzito - Published on Amazon.com
This is the best blender ever! Anyone who says anything bad about this blender must have got a defective one. For the first time in my life I have a blender that can crush and cut up ice with ease. For a blender, it's very quiet. I am so impressed by how well it mixes food. Nothing ever gets stuck. Blending is always quick and easy!
