The unit’s sharp blade thoroughly combines ingredients, while its Intelli-Speed electronic sensor automatically adjusts the power to maintain a consistent speed even with thicker mixtures.
In addition, the blender provides a 48-ounce glass jar with an inner-lock collar for safety, a secure-fitting lid, a generous easy-grip handle, and a drip-free pouring spout for graceful serving.

What a waste! I didn’t want plastic in the interior of my blender. I searched for a glass jar blender assuming that plastic would not still somehow make it’s way into the blender. Bad assumption!!! They really should include a picture of the plastic bottom unit if they are going to sell things online, sight unseen!IF YOU WANT A GLASS AND STEEL INTERIOR (BLENDER) OSTER SEEMS THE ONLY WAY TO GO. Not the best blender though good enough for my needs, though noisy on anything above low; heck even the low setting is pretty noisy. Even the good (quiet) Braun Puremix has this plastic interior base and glass jar combination; though of course metal blades which might be misleading. It was for me as I almost bought that one as well. A quiet blender (Braun Puremix) was very “seductive”. Good thing I investigated more!I don’t blend ice or frozen things and have never, over my many years of blending, broken a glass jar from blending. Where’s my blender?It’s foolish to think that “new” plastics won’t be proven to be as bad as old plastics in 10 years!

I received a 5 speed Kitchen Aid blender about 10 years and LOVED the blender. It was a nice simple design, easy to clean and powerful. It was perfect for my basic kitchen needs. One of the things I liked about it was that it had a glass jar instead of a polycarbonate one. Unfortunately, I recently broke the jar and have not been able to find anyone with a replacement jar in stock. Kitchen Aid has since redesigned their 5 speed glass jar blender & it has an all new base design that is NOT good. The previous one was one piece. The blade sat down on it then you twisted the jar in. The new design has this base that has all kinds of extra moving parts. There are all kinds of nooks & crannies for food to get logged into it and make it impossible to keep clean. And the plastic felt like it would crack within the first few months of use. I never even used… just packed it up & sent it back. I do want be fair and qualify my review… it is purely based on the design of the base, I have no idea how it works as a blender.

This is really powerful. My only problem is it leaks if you’re not careful on how you put the gasket in. The old blender I had from kitchenaid was really good. Never had a leaking problem. Otherwise I really like it as it has a glass bowl so it is more quite then the plastic bowl.

It’s great! Works perfectly, and I love that the blade comes out so I can clean it well. The only slight issue I’ve had is with the rubber ring that sits inside the blender around the blade, its very hard to clean by hand and already started smelling after two weeks of use. Food gets stuck in the small groove in the ring. I think I’ve gotten it clean enough to keep using but it was kind of a pain in the butt. Other than that I love this blender, it’s exactly what I wanted.

I have been using this blender now for almost a year. It is pretty noisy when it’s running, but it performs very well. I use mine mainly for pureeing soups and making smoothies. I find that it’s no problem to throw in frozen fruit with a little liquid; the blades handle the fruit easily. I generally don’t have to stop to redistribute things because the blender does a good job of circulating the contents so things are evenly processed. I am very happy with my blender, despite the loud motor.

I bought the previous model probably 10-12 or more years ago and it lasted and lasted. So naturally I went back to the same model. I purchased this Sept 2010 and the base is already useless – the nut is loose, no way to fix without replacement. Initially it didn’t work as well as the previous Kitchenaid I had – ice crushing not as good and just not as sturdy overall. Won’t buy it again – for $100 and the fact that it was used 4-10 times monthly – ridiculous. Whoopee, a 1 year warranty – no wonder.
October 25 2011 Update: I received a replacement of this same model and it leaked again in the same place under the blades at the drive shaft. I received the new one on October 11 and it began to leak on October 25. During that period I used it about 7 times.September 2011: I have used this blender only 6 times since purchasing about 2 weeks ago and it is leaking. The drive shaft connecting the blades to the drive gear is loose and liquid leaks out in this area when blending leaving a mess to clean up under the blender when finished. Disappointed! This part should not be loose after two weeks! Everything else about this Kitchen Aid Blender seems well made and meets my expectations. I spent the extra money on the Kitchen Aid blender because I thought it would be well made.

We’ve been using this to make smoothies and the power is awesome! The ice crushing mode works perfect, although I always cringe expecting the glass container to shatter when it starts throwing the cubes around. One of the reasons we chose this over other brands was the fact the container is actual glass and not cheap plastic but I did see one review claiming the glass shattered while crushing ice.The only negative is the noise it makes and the smell of what I would describe as over-heated oil if you run it for more than a few seconds. I though this would go away in time but so far it hasn’t. Otherwise this is a great machine and has the power to liquefy pretty much anything you feel like putting in there!

It’s an okay blender. For the price and performance I’m not sure it’s actually any better than our old Oster. The jar design is annoying because you have to make sure the ring is sitting perfectly or it will make a huge mess.My thoughts after owning for a few years. Either save a few bucks and get a decent but less premium name brand OR go big and get a delux blender.

In the past 6 months I’ve purchased both kitchenaid’s artisan blender and their matching stand mixer. For years, when I’d go to replace our large mixer, I always wanted the kitchenaid brand but thought it was unnecessarily more expensive. I was wrong. Kitchenaid is well worth the extra money for any product they produce. I’ve never been so satisfied with a kitchen essential before. The blender is so easy to use, clean and set up. I don’t have t o search for the right position of the canister on top of the motor, it just “goes on” correctly every time. It crushes frozen fruit expertly, no matter how full it is and it whips those smoothies into the frothiest drinks I’ve ever had. Holy cow, I wish I’d skipped all the other brands years ago and shelled out the extra money for kitchenaid. I couldn’t be happier.
Small problems since Day 1 with leaking. Replaced blending section and o-ring, leaking reduced to only occasionally. Lately the smell of electric wiring under stress in the motor became apparent. Today parts became separated in the base blending section. I use it daily, but it should not have been this unreliable and have failed after a year and a half.
Acheté il y a 4 ans, j’ai beaucoup utilisé ce blender.Je ne mets pas 5 étoiles, parceque le socle coule si en utilise des liquides!C dommage. Nous avons trouvé le problème, A force de l’utiliser, l’hélice slaque, deviens lousse et il faut resserrer la base de l’hélice.Dommage car le rapport qualité prix pour la puissance de cette machine est très bien.
Loved this blender !!! Bought this to use for healthy smoothies and making soups. It’s fabulous – decided to buy a 2nd one in white for my daughter. It is super powerful – does anything from a quick blend to chopping up ice . Quiet operation – sturdy construction. Easy to clean – love the glass pitcher. Good for hot or cold items.

My wife’s primary criteria for replacing our existing Oster blender was it had to be better at crushing ice. I bought the KSB565 on the basis of positive reviews on its ice crushing. It lived up to its billing. Sometimes it has a little trouble getting the cubes into the blades, and you have to add more liquid. But in general we’ve been very pleased with its ability to make smoothies, daiquiris, etc. Have not tested it extensively with other blending tasks. Time will tell if my decision to get the smaller glass pitcher was wise. (I was worried about microabrasions in the plastic one.)
