This blender makes a good first impression. It looks solid as a tank, with a big and heavy motor compartment. The controls also look great at first glance; they seem delightfully simple: An on/off button and a speed control dial. Ha, ha; how naive of me to think that. In fact the controls will be hopelessly confusing if you don’t read the manual, and you may want to keep that manual (printed on kitchen-unfriendly newsprint paper) handy for reference on less-used functions. And heaven forbid that some guest to your home (who hasn’t read the manual) attempt to use this blender. You can expect a reaction along the lines of “What the bleepity-bleep is this bleeping machine doing?! Why is it … How do I … Why won’t it …” Probably concluding with “Why couldn’t you just get a _normal_ blender?!”What looks like a simple speed control dial actually has several programmed functions that take over control of the speed, blending time, and pulsing. Because obviously no mere human can be relied on to handle all those variables when crushing ice, or making a smoothy or frozen drink, or even when cleaning the blender jar. You must bow to the superior judgement of your blender for those complex and risky operations.But bottom line, this is a solidly-built blender that will do the job. If you don’t mind the stupidly “intelligent” controls, it will probably serve you well for many years.

Measures up to Vitamix! I’ll start off by saying I love KitchenAid small appliances! Their customer service is just unsurpassed! So when I saw this blender I had to give it a try. I have a vita mix and I’ve had it for over 10 years and I love it! Well, what I don’t like about it is the container. I wish it was glass and that’s what I love about this blender. It also has a nicer retro type of style that I really liked. Like the vita mix it has variable speed‘s so you can customize the blending to whatever you need. I found it had a motor that was nearly as strong as my Vita mix. It handled nut butters without any issues and to me that is the ultimate test of a good blender. But the best part is being able to have the pitcher in glass and I also like that circumference of the pitcher is even throughout unlike the vita mix which is narrower at the bottom and then gets wider toward the top. It makes for a little bit of instability when you were just trying to set the pitcher on the counter itself. As far as price goes, this is not a cheap blender, but it’s not really a blender it’s more like a vita mix. And compared to a vita mix the price is much lower so I consider it a good value.

The Pros, very nicely styled, Seems well made.The Cons,…….Sounded awful. The drive between the motor and blender pitcher wobbled around,….A lot, sounding like the gears were grinding. Definitely NOT a well oiled machine. Given all that and, the fact that the gear mechanism is plastic, I could have no faith in it’s durability. I was trying to place our classic Osterizer Beehive that we have had for 4 decades. It still works fine and is much quieter that this.

Robust multi purpose blender. Doesn’t shy away from any any job so far. Would have given it 5 stars if it wasn’t for the noise.

Amazing quality for the value. Best blender I’ve ever used. My only gripe is that it doesn’t have a an easy pour lid/cap. (first world problem) Other than that it’s easy to use, it’s auto-timer shutoff is super convenient, and overall it has industrial power in a small frame. People who are saying that the controls are too complicated probably shouldn’t be using a blender or anything with sharp parts.
This is my initial review for the KitchenAid KSB4027BM K400 Countertop Blender, 56 Ounce, Matte Black, and I’ll continue updating it as I use it.Ok this is a serious blender, from the minute you take it out of the packaging which was very nice and safe, That thing feels heavy duty, like a commercial product for big restaurants but in smaller modern design. The base is heavy which gives you the assurance that it packs enough horse power to even crush rocks, not just food and ice.The looks is very sleek and beautiful with metal black finish, it’s very easy to clean, and now putting this thing to the test, it’s seriously as the AD says “On Sip Says it All” this thing has an impressive engineering behind it, nothing gets stuck on the top, thanks to it’s unique asymmetric blade that blends at four distinct angles to pull contents into the blade and the strong motor with makes it melts through anything it touches, nothing and i mean nothing won’t get crushed thanks to the 1.5 horse power it packs, this thing kicks any conventional cheap blender that struggle to crush a tomato, out of the window. it’s really a joy to use and see it work.You get 3 preset recipe programs: ice crush, icy drinks & smoothie and 5-speed variable speed dial and Soft starts feature starts the motor at a slower speed to pull food into the blade, then quickly increases to the selected speed setting to avoid splatter and the Intelli-speed motor control senses contents and maintains the optimal speed to power through all ingredientsOverall, That is a serious blender, a blender that will out live even any body, in my opinion if you’ve got the money, it’s very good investment.
Careful customer –
The KitchenAid gives Vitamix a run for its money. It functions as well, but it’s less expensive and a little quieter, also more stylish.
This blender is insanely powerful. I purchased it for home use and I’m very impressed with the quality and blending power it provides. Ice is no problem for this blender when making smoothies or drinks.

I love it! A bit loud but it can crush smoothly! The cleaning option made it easier! Would have been 5 star if it wasn’t of the noise!
