The Overstock.com description specifically stated that the container was glass, which is what I wanted. Container is plastic. I've kept it because I make smoothies with it and it works for that. Looks good in black and the ice feature works fine.
I wanted a blender with a glass container but couldn't find one I thought was a good deal. I decided to settle on this one, and I am glad I did. Powerful, sturdy and makes frozen drinks like a pro. Only design flaw I could find was that it's very loud. But with a powerful motor, I suppose that is to be expected. Definitely buy it!
I love this blender. Mostly have made smoothies. It is not noisy like the last blender I had. It works very well for ice. Easy to use and easy to clean. Was a little disappointed that the literature said the blender pitcher and the lid could go in the dishwasher as I put the lid in the dishwasher, on the top shelf and it disformed it a small bit. Otherwise very happy with the product.
I HAVE NOT USED THE BLENDER YET, IM SURE IT WORKS JUST FINE, HOWEVER JUST WANTED TO GIVE ANYONE A HEADS UP WHO IS LOOKING AT THIS BLENDER --- THE DESCRIPTION SPECIFICALLY STATES THAT IT HAS A GLASS PITCHER, WHICH IS THE MAIN REASON I BOUGHT THIS BLENDER FOR MY MOM FOR CHRISTMAS. SHE REALLY WANTED A NEW BLENDER WITH A GLASS PTICHER TO REPLACE THE ANCIENT BLENDER THATS BEEN SITTING ON HER COUNTER FOR DECADES. I WAS SO EXCITED FOR HER TO OPEN THIS BLENDER AT CHRISTMAS BUT WAS EXTREMELY DISSAPPOINTED WHEN SHE TOOK IT OUT OF THE BOX AND THE PITCHER IS VERY MUCH PLASTIC. :( IM HOPING TO CONTACT KITHENAID DIRECTLY AND SEE IF THERE IS ANYWAY TO EXHANGE JUST THE PITCHER BUT NOT SURE IT THAT IS POSSIBLE.
Great packaging so that this arrived safe. Super design/ great details on the site ~ so I could pick out a model with the right power/ safety control/ and I wanted a really nice hard plastic top ~ because I have so much marble in my kitchen. perfect and a lovely style ! Some new blenders are just too big ! perfect & can crunch up vegetable if you like to make summer vegetable cold soups. Love it !
I compared blenders below the price of ******* and *******, This products does everything they said it would well. I make green smoothies and am satisfied with the results. It does great on ice. It is still loud but not as bad as I expected for the efficiency I get. I am delighted with the purchase.
