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.
