    I bought a Ninja first and that was a bad mistake. Returned it and bought the Kitchen Aid and it works great! I've blended lots of things; smoothies with lots of frozen fruit and ice, sauces with whole nuts, hot soups, It blends everything that I have ever put in it perfectly. Also, the base is very low profile and really made to last. The container is very durable and easy to scrape clean. The pour spout is a real plus. Fits nicely under my cabinet area. Overall LOVE it!

    I'm obsessed with Empire Red KitchenAid products and I knew I had to have this machine. I was disappointed to see it was not available in any stores near me, but with free shipping I was okay with ordering online. I received the blender in just a few days and couldn't wait to begin making smooties. The machine works great at taking frozen fruit and ice and liquefying them in seconds. I haven't used it for more than smoothies, so I haven't engaged all of the features yet. My only complaints are the noise (it's very loud, compared to other machines I've used) and that the blade is not removable for cleaning. Rating: B+

    A Beast!

    Posted .

    I had an old blender that took a dump a while back. I train for triathlons so I make a lot of protein shakes with fresh fruit and ice. I did a lot of research and decided on this one. It's amazing. First of all, it's solid, with rubber feet. It doesn't start dancing around the countertop when it's on high. Second, it's quiet. With the lid on it was so quiet I thought something was wrong. Even with the lid off it's not that loud. Thirdly, it blends anything in seconds, literally. Lastly, it's got an easy pour, no mess spout, and it's easy to clean, I do it by hand in seconds. Stop shopping for a blender, this is the one.

    Super smoothie maker at a great price.

    I looked at several blenders online and in-person. I finally settled on the KitchenAid KBS560 for its design, technical specs, price and reviews. I use the machine to make iced protein drinks. The "crush ice" function does what it says, which is great for ice only. I use the "Stir" speed to make smoothies. It does a good job of crushing the ice at this speed without shooting the drink into the lid of the pitcher. The smoothie comes out super cold with only very small pieces of ice - the way I like it. The plastic pitcher seems durable and its mechanical parts fit tightly into the pitcher. There is no slack between the blender base and the pitcher either, which tells me that machine is engineered for durability. This is a good buy.

    Great blender for smoothie

    Wanted to start juicing but didn't want to get the bulk of a juicer or the cleanup, so bought a blender. It's great so far. The pulp can't be help but as for ease of use and cleaning. Can't be beaten. I've used every vege and fruit imaginable, everything blended well. The noise is the only con I could think of. It's strong so I guess comes with the territory. Great buy overall.

    I recently purchased this blender and it takes on any job I subject it to. Go for quality, not quantity otherwise you'll be spending more money in the long run.

    WIfe really loves this blender.

    Posted .

    After reading several reviews, I chose this blender as it has every feature we wanted for less than $100. We make protein shakes every morning. Design is perfect as the pitcher creates the perfect vortex so it crushes ice and blends fruit/nuts/ingredients perfectly. Easy clean up as you don't have to disassemble the whole thing to wash. Only complaint is that BB ships it in its original box. Best Buy, maybe you should put this on the "Overview" section. This was a gift and I am glad I showed up at home the same time it was delivered or the surprise would have been ruined. Also shipping in its original box it arrived really dirty and beat up. No damage to the blender itself, but again who wants to give a dirty and beat up looking gift? We have used it for two months, sometimes twice each day and it has worked perfectly. Like I said, my wife really loves this blender.

    Fantastic blender

    This blender is a work-horse. Whips up smoothies, margaritas, milkshakes without breaking a sweat. The blender jug is wide and light and easy to clean. The blender itself is heavy and very very solid. A great blender, and a quarter the price of a Vitamix or a Blendtec

    Smoothies

    Posted .

    This blender really crushes ice, frozen fruit, and almost anything put into a smoothie. It is almost commercial grade, except for the bottom screw on the container. It needs to be tightened at times. It is still the best blender I've ever used!

    Great Blender for the money!

    Posted .

    We bought this blender about 1 month ago. We were shopping for a while to find a good blender to be primarily used for smoothies. We really wanted either the Blendtec or the Vitamix, but couldn't afford to spend $400 or more on a blender. We decided to try the Kitchenaid 5-speed blender because of good reviews and the $100 price tag. We have been using it several times a day for the past month and it has worked flawlessly. I am so glad we got this blender. It looks good sitting on the counter, and it does what it's supposed to do. Blends up whatever you put in it. I read some reviews that said the jar leaked. I haven't experienced this, but as I said before, I've only been using it for one month. We'll see how well it lasts.

    Bought the blender for my mom and she loves it. She's making smoothies, shakes, and anything and everything possible. She is crazy about the color since her kitchen is primarily white so the tangerine is a nice splash of color. It came right on time.

    Powerfull motor and the best crushed ice ever

    Posted .

    I purchsed this blender about 8 months ago. It replaced a very old blender that has worked great for 10 years. I was looking for a new blender that was built well and had options to do many types of blending. This blender meets that criteria. The blender construction is very solid with a very powerful motor. The motor speed system tries to maintain the selected speed even when various thikcknesses are put into the carafe. It sometimes has a hard time blending very think mixtures where you have to help assit the mixture down into the blending blade area. There is a Crush Ice mode that makes perfect crushed ice. All in all I would highy recommend this blender over many others out there. Its worth the extra cost.

    A Head Above the Competition

    Posted .

    This is the target that consumer grade blenders have been shooting for for generations. It has great functionality and blends the ingredients fantastically. Does a blender really need more that 3 speeds though? It's not a bike. Give me slow, medium and fast and I'm fine. I'll take the extra speeds though, as long as they are offering.

    This is my first KitchenAid product. After my daughter had lower jaw surgery I knew that I would need a very good blender to prepare her meals. This blender is so easy to operate and clean. I love it.

    Worth every dime

    I killed my last blender making smoothies with lots of ice. burnt out the engine. After looking at Consumer Reports I decided on the Kitchenaide Blender. This machine is so powerful it almost jumps off the counter when you start it. No risk of burning up this engine. Love this blender.

    I like the size of the pitcher. My old Kitchenaid is still working very well but the pitcher is too small for meal replacement smoothies, however this one is perfect.
