I was hesitant to buy a "refurbished" blender thinking that it would be inferior in either looks or performance but that was not the case. I used it the first day and was pleased with the power. I made a tart filling that called for Meyers lemons, unpeeled plus other ingredients and it blended them all, no problem. I also saw what seemed like the exact same blender in Targets for twice the price.

I was pleased to open the package with this blender. I have gone through several in my adult life, and this one is far sturdier and seems higher quality then the others i've owned. You will be surprised at how heavy this is. I have stainless appliances, so this was an obvious color choice and matches the other countertop appliances I have. I had not purchased a refurbished item before; this one came iwth the owners manual, although it was in an overstock box, and not the original packaging. I was slightly concerned about what went wrong the first time that it had to be refurbished, but in the end, it seems to operate perfectly. I am very pleased with my purchase.

Because the blender was purchased as a holiday gift, it remains unopened at this time, so I am unable to provide specific information regarding it. However, I can comment on the excellent service provided me by the representative when I was making my purchase and the very prompt delivery of the blender. Both were excellent, however, because I personally interacted with the representative, I can say so much more about her. This young lady was courteous, proficient, and very kind. To say she was helpful is an understatement.

Bought this for my daughter, who went away to college. She absolutely loved it. The one she bought was not blending her foods. When she got this one she did nothing but rave about how GREAT it was.

I recently purchased a refurbished kitchen aid empire red blender. I have many other empire red KitchenAid products and it was time to add this beauty to the package. When I opened the package I knew it had been refurbished, so it possibly wouldn't be perfect. However, it was pretty darn close! It had a few scratches on the pitcher for the blender but the machinery part looked absolutely perfect. I'm sure the previous owner before me used it just a few times and decided to return it, hence the scratches. I would suspect they are from ice hitting the sides, which would be normal with any blender. It is a great product and I use it often to make adult beverages. :)

Compared to previously owed Blenders this is an absolute standout. However, like all others it is too loud; so I only wish Kitchen Aid would find the means to insulate the engine noise. Perfect functionality and in all other respects.

This is the first time we tried Kitchen aid product and we are very much happy and satisfied with the purchase. Perfect for your kitchen. You can make all kinds of smoothies, indian chutneys, crush ice easily etc. I would definately recommend this product for your kitchen.

I love this kitchen gadget! I have only had it over the weekend so I can't say if it will continue to be as wonderful as it is now, but it is Kitchen Aid and that tends to be a reliable brand. I have used it to make baby food (blender), Guacamole (chopper and blender), and apple cheddar soup (blender again). It is so easy to use, to clean and gets the job done thoroughly and well. The only potential negative is that you can't switch it to "on" and leave it like that you have to hold the button down. At first I didn't like this feature but really it is probably good especially when blending because it stops immediately once your hand is off of it. The grip is comfortable, and as stated before works like a charm. We have a XXXXX and XXXXXX regular blender-after this I think it's destined for donation to a locale thrift store.

We have only used it so far to make malts, did a good job there for sure. It seems very powerful compared to our old cheap blender. It does seem to be made to Kitchen Aid standards. So far we are impressed.

I'm really not all that satisfied with this. It didn't quite work like I had expected. I've seen commercials on the TV and thought this would be better since it's a Cuisinart.

Disappointing. Broke down after a year (out of warranty). Too costly to replace parts. Cheaper to buy a new one. This I would buy at Macy's or local store, as it is easier to replace parts or use warranty. Also , perhaps because refurbished it was not durable. Not worth the few dollars savings.

This blender is wonderful. It blends stuff so evenly, fast and well. Does a great job with ice too. The blender looks brand new out of the box, not refurbished at all. Great way to save money on quality blender by getting a refurbished model from a good brand like kitchen aid.

This refurbished KitchenAid blender was a great deal! It appears to be in mint condition and works great, even for grinding soft grains (oats, buckwheat) into flour. I use it regularly and am very happy with the product and, especially, the price.

Second Kitchen Aid blender I've own. Great improvement over previous model with base and apparatus to prevent leakage. Makes perfect smoothies in large quantity. Perfectly satisfied with the refurbished model, saved $50 that preferred color would have cost.

My old Kitchen Aid which I had replaced parts on numerous times finally blew up. I didn't really want another Kitchen Aid, but found myself on a tighter budget at the moment. This one seemed to offer better quality for the money because it was reconditioned, so I took a chance. The other reviews were good, and they weren't fibbing--I love it, and even love that the canister is poly carbonate instead of glass. It is so much lighter than my old one. I also am positively thrilled that it has the blade built into the bottom rather than, blade, gasket and threaded canister that you have to separate to get it clean. I am not a "use three times a day" blender person, but I do use it frequently and have been more than satisfied with it's performance.

I was so excited to open this present from my husband for my birthday. My old one needed replaced badly and he spent a lot of time and energy looking for the best blenders because I use mine often for smoothies and canning (tomatoes, esp). I love the flat button surface that wipes clean because canning tomatoes is messy and juice/seeds used to get in between the old buttons, which was hard to clean on my oster. Loved my oster, but this kitchen aid model knocks it out of the park with excellent power, super fast blending, ease of use, ice crushing, and quick clean up. Would highly recommend!

After researching professional reviews online, I selected this to replace a four-year-old, heavy-duty, bar-grade KitchenAid blender that I loved, but the blade housing was leaking and the model was no longer made. I didn't think this model would be as good but the motor is surprisingly powerful--it does a beautiful job blending protein shakes made with a lot of ice, for example--and the base is nice and heavy. This is the second refurbished kitchen appliance I've bought from Overstock and so far I'm extremely pleased.

Appears to be well-made, I like the interchangeable parts, and I'm hoping that they will be easy to keep clean and will not rust.
Making smoothies and milkshakes is easy with the right blender to mix everything together into a smooth consistency. A juicer, on the other hand, separates juice from fruit and vegetables by squeezing it. If you want the pure vegetable or fruit juice of a vegetable or fruit, you will probably need to buy a juicer, such as an orange juicer, rather than a kitchen blender. For thicker smoothies and drinks that still contain fruit pulp, however, blenders will work well. Read on for tips on using your food blender as a juicer for a variety of fruits.
