KitchenAid Blender Review

Kitchen Aid blenders are high quality blenders that are durable and easy to clean and do everything from blending smoothies to crushing ice and pureeing vegetables. The KitchenAid KSB560 blender can’t be beat.

This 5-speed blender has many user-friendly features and  it is one of the most powerful blenders you can buy today. The blender features a .9 HP motor (approximately 700 watts) and Intelli-speed electronic controls for fast and consistent blending. The motor is designed to start out slow, eliminating splatters, and adjusts according to the thickness of ingredients; and  the powerful motor makes it a cinch to crush ice. Blender modes include Stir, Chop, Mix, Puree, Liquify, Crush Ice and Pulse.

The blender includes a 56 ounce shatter resistant, polycarbonate blend and serve pitcher.  The pitcher is light-weight and has a soft grip handle, so it’s simple for anyone to use.  This one- piece pitcher is dishwasher safe with a stainless steel one piece blade, eliminating trapped foods.

The KSB 560 also features a Clean Touch control pad which easily wipes clean, without food getting stuck in the buttons.  Plus, there’s a cord storage to keep countertops neat and tidy.

The blender is available in an array of colors, including:

  • White
  • Tangerine
  • Metallic chrome
  • Blue Willow
  • Empire red
  • Gloss cinnamon
  • Onxy black


In testing the KSB560 blender, it crushed ice effortlessly, pitcher after pitcher.  And while normally I prefer a glass container, the polycarbonate container is sturdy, scratch and stain-resistant, and  is so much easier to handle than the heavier glass pitcher. Even your kids can handle this! Plus it doesn’t hold odors like some plastic containers do, and it’s simple to clean – just put it in your dishwasher!

Other great things I found are the cord storage, keeping the counter top tidy, and also the lid on the pitcher doubles as a two-ounce measure, which is truly convenient. And I love the choice of colors, there’s one to match practically any kitchen décor.

While a little more expensive than some blenders on the market, the KitchenAid KSB560  5-speed blender is powerful and durable, plus includes a 1-year hassle-free replacement warranty. I highly recommend  it!
