Robust Motor

Rugged 0.9-horsepower motor supplies the power for superb performance with all blending tasks--from pureeing sauces to making chunky salsas or uniformly crushing a pitcher of ice or frozen fruit within seconds for silky smoothies.

Easy-Clean One-Piece Pitcher Design

The clear pitcher is shatter resistant, scratch resistant, and stain resistant. The pitcher handle features a soft inner grip for firm, comfortable, no-slip control. The one-piece design integrates a functional pitcher with dynamic interior contours that continually directs food into the blade for fast, thorough blending. The one-piece design also means cleaning is achieved without removing the blade and other parts. Even more, the pitcher stands up to extreme temperatures--from boiling soups to frozen margaritas, and it has a wide pour spout to ensure smooth pouring. The pitcher is dishwasher-safe.

Patented Stainless-Steel Blade

Sharp oversized blade tines are positioned on four different planes for fast, thorough, and consistent blending. KitchenAid's durable blade design is built into the pitcher for easy handling and cleaning.

Intelli-Speed Motor Control

Exclusive Intelli-Speed control automatically works to keep speed constant--even through density changes when ingredients are added. This advanced KitchenAid design maintains an optimal blending speed for each culinary task and control-pad setting.

Speed Selection Buttons

Create frozen drinks and puree sauces or soups in seconds. Blend with confidence, control, and consistency at all speed settings: Stir, Chop, Mix, Puree, and Liquefy. The Pulse mode works with all five speeds. The Crush Ice mode is designed specifically for crushing ice and will automatically pulse at staggered intervals for optimal results.

Soft Start Feature

The blender motor starts at a slower speed to pull food into the blade then quickly increases to the selected speed setting. This design feature reduces start-up kick and allows hands-free operation.

Clean Touch Control Pad

Wipes clean in an instant. Smooth control pad has no crevices or cracks to trap ingredients.

Durable Steel-Reinforced Couplers

Commercial-quality couplers with 12 interlocking teeth provide direct transfer of motor power to the blade. Pitcher coupler is coated for quiet operation.

Stay-Put Lid with Clear 2-Ounce (60 mL) Ingredient Cap

The flexible lid will maintain its tight seal throughout the life of the blender. The lid includes a removable 2-ounce (60 mL) cap for convenience in measuring and adding ingredients.

Die-Cast Metal Base

The blender's heavy, die-cast metal base ensures stable, quiet operation when blending a full pitcher of ingredients. Four rubber feet on the wide, solid base provide a no-slip, nonmarring grip. Smooth and rounded, the base is easy to clean and features tidy cord storage underneath.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I did research May 7 2010
    Color Name:Black
    I went on a website that compared KitchenAid along with 4 other makes - 2 moderately priced ones and 2 higher-end commercial types. The test was whether the machines could liquify a whole apple or a whole orange with the rind on and some liquid. The KitchenAid came out on top without having to use a plunger of sorts and this item was also sold with the higher-end blenders. Hmmm. I decided to upgrade to the KitchenAid model even though my old blender was still functioning when I saw it on sale for just little over $100. You will also like how much quieter this blender is compared to others. I use it regularly and I can honestly say that I love it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars No drawbacks yet! Oct. 21 2011
    By k-whidd
    Color Name:Metallic Chrome
    Previous to purchasing this blender we had an Osterizer, which cost $49 and did the tasks we asked of it. However, it always let us know that it was doing us a favor by working. Then one day, it stopped working.

    We had always talked about getting an industrial blender, such as a Vitamix TurboBlend VS Blender Vita-Mix (Tax Incl.), but felt the price-benefit ratio may not meet our criteria. While perusing small appliances at a department store, I became acquainted with the KitchenAid. This blender makes a good first impression. It feels like a small tank, similar to that of other trustworthy KitchenAid appliances I have grown to trust (proud owners of the classic KitchenAid mixer, and a rugged KitchenAid food processor). However, the department store price was nearing the top end of everyday consumer blenders at $229. After returning home, I did the typical consumer research for the KitchenAid over the internet (how much does it cost elsewhere, how product owners/testers reviewed it). I was shocked to find that amazon had the identical blender on sale for $90! But I couldn't make a rash purchase, purchase decisions often boil down to reading reviews. People complained about having trouble with the seal where the blade meets the jug. Others thought it was too noisy, and the lid didn't make a proper seal. Despite these minor flaws, we ordered it.

    I effing love this blender. It may be a little loud, but this blender performs. It makes silky smoothies, and perfectly pureed soups. As opposed to the Osterizer, this blender feels like a tool that is ready and willing to perform anything you ask of it.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Good blender but blade can't be replaced Nov. 21 2012
    By Autumn
    Color Name:Metallic Chrome
    This blender works really well, but after 2 years of use the blade snapped. This is pretty common and shouldn't be a big deal to fix. But you can't buy a replacement blade because of the way the jar is made - it's all one piece. So when the blade breaks after your 1 year warranty expires, you have to spend $40 ($26 plus tax and shipping) to get a whole new jar, and throw out your perfectly good one. This is not good for people who plan to use it for many years and expect to be able to keep it in good shape with minor repairs.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this product - poor quality jar Dec 7 2012
    Color Name:Black
    Being a longtime loyal KitchenAid customer (have spent over $2000 on small appliances in the past 5 years), I am not spending another penny on a KitchenAid product. I have owned this blender for a few years, but I have used it less than about 20 times. Despite light use and it being only ever handwashed, the jar is cracking in several places. Unlike a commentor on the US site, KitchenAid Canada was unwilling to offer me a replacement (yes, it was out-of-warranty, but U.S. customers are getting a replacement due to this specific issue well beyond their warranty periods). They have recently redesigned the jar but will not admit that it is because the other model was defective. Based on Amazon.com reviews, I am not convinced that the new jar is any better, and I am unwilling to throw good money after bad at this point. Also, they were not willing to replace a food processor bowl that was purchased months before they were manufactured BPA-free, standing behind the claim that the Government of Canada has not determined that BPA is harmful for humans to ingest. Yet, they redesigned the product without BPA...

    This blender is going into my garage sale and a new Vitamix onto my Christmas list. Yes, it is a LOT more expensive but I know that it will last a lifetime and that they will stand behind their product...a company that understands that it is much more profitable in the long run to build quality products and ensure that customers are completely satisfied.

    As a consumer, we can only vote with our dollars. It is worthwhile to invest in quality rather than buying into the current throw-away culture. Until we demand it, companies will just keep making cheap products and have you buy them more often. They make more money this way.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Broke after two years Nov. 21 2012
    By Erin
    Color Name:Metallic Chrome
    This blender worked great for about two years. It was really powerful and could do thick dips, etc.

    The rubber washers that hold the blade on failed - I ended up with bits of rubber washer in my brownie batter and a leaky jar. I called Kitchenaid, who said that while they had identified that leaking was a problem with this model, they were not taking any action about it yet and I should call back in a month or two. Not an acceptable resolution from my perspective. Seems like a waste to throw out the whole thing, as the motor seemed great, but I also don't want to spend more on a jar that might just break again!

    4.0 out of 5 stars This is a good blender.
    I like the fact that it fits on top of the base without having a gasket as gaskets can get old, don't always fit properly and leak at times.
