Excerpt: The KitchenAid KSB560 Five Speed Blender is an excellent blender to have in the kitchen. I like that this blender has five speeds because it can be used for a larger variety of menu ideas and recipes.
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. The blender can blend thick liquids, such as cool whip and jello (was making a banana pudding). Yes; the blue color is something that you will have to grow into.
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. I simply hand wash and once in a while throw the jar and lid in the dishwasher. Best purchase!
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. except for some tiny chunks of fruit left over, (i use frozen organic mango), it does an amazing job, smooth and creamy! and once you add the ingredients, it takes all of 5 seconds to blend it.
Kitchen Aid High Speed blender gets the job done in less time.
15 July 2014
Summary: This blender is high speed, which is what I like most about it. I looked at an online kitchen tested video to see which blender passed all the test the best and the Kitchen Aid out performed the other band names. It pulverizes my frozen fruits and veggies in about 20 seconds. I haven't found anything I dislike about it. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who needs to get the job done and doesn't want to spend a lot of money.
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. And it's not a slow leak, it actually throws whatever you're blending around the underside of the carafe and all over the base unit. I'd not recommend this unit to anyone.
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. The first blender broke after about 6 uses and KitchenAid was great about sending a replacement. The problem is, the replacement and the original just don't work with any efficacy to blend food.
