Summary: An excellent blender for the price. I have never had any problems with this unit. I use it 5 days a week to mix protein powder with fruit. It is a little on the loud side, but you cannot beat the top quality of this Kitchen Aid blender.
Like cleaning sticky smoothie mess that oozes out the bottom of the pitcher? This is the one for you.

Summary: Purchased 3 years ago and it leaked smoothie all over my counter today. I'm giving it 2 stars since I liked it while it worked. I had noticed small cracks in the pitcher over the years but now it's rendered useless. I'm not sure I want to invest in another one and have to replace that down the road.
Summary: Still works from 2008! Use now with the Arbonne protein powder shakes and it works great with ice and whatever else I can throw in there. I made the decision to get after reading tons of reviews and thought I could update to help others.
Summary: I've only made smoothies and sorbet in this but they come out fantastic. I didn't want to buy an ice cream maker so i decided to attempt a sorbet after seeing my friend make one in her expensive vitamix blender.
Summary: Reading everyones reviews talked me into trying this mixer! It works great.......yes, it is loud but I could care less about that as long as it does the job! I make protein smoothies with this with ICE and it does a fantastic job! I love Kitchen Aid.
Summary: As many others have stated, this is a great blender at first. It has a ton of power and the blades liquefy anything we throw at it. We use it about 2-3 times a day, every day. After 3 months, the carafe started leaking where the blades attach.
Attractive but does not work, not even a little bit

Summary: I did a significant amount of research before selecting this blender and it was attractive , matched my kitchen, and it had decent ratings. I am stunned it had any reviews over a 2. In my experience, it may quite possibly be the most useless appliance we own.
