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: I got this blender in January and love it!!! I got the silver one. I use mine mostly to make smoothies, protien shakes and slushes. I love the way it crushes the ice so finely. It's like a sonic slush in the flavors you like without having to go anywhere to get it and being able to do it at home you can control the sugar content or just plain make it calorie free with Truvia.
Pros: great price point. blends quickly. crushed ice as fine as snow. looks great with other counter top appliances
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: Excellent blender except that it leaks at the bottom leaving a really small amount of residue. Not sure if defective but I see somebody else here had the same problem. Went back to Costco and they took them off the shelf, Sad because I really did like it.
Summary: I just bought this blender last week and every time I use it there is liquid escaping from the bottom of the container onto the external area. I'm not sure how a brand new blender could leak so fast, but I'm returning it with the hope this one is defective and the replacement will work better. Besides the leakage problem, it seems to work fine. It is easy to clean and seems to do a good job making smoothies.
Summary: i agree with all the other reviews. its size is perfect for singles and small families. i bought the red one. it looks very good in my kitchen. i am having the first smoothie; it blended very well. last but not least, the price is right too.
Summary: This blender is excellent! I wanted a blender to make green smoothies and this one purees the greens just the same as the expensive models. I borrowed a friends $400 one, so I know the consistency is the same. I love the fact that the blades are shaped up and down so it gets all the food picked up and doesn't get all stuck. It cleans up beautifully too. My old blender I had to take everything apart to clean it and this is just one unit.
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.
