Why did you choose this product?
I did a lot of research before I replaced my old blender - an ***** *******. I didn't want something too expensive, but didn't want a cheap model, either. I already own and love a KitchenAid mixer, and feel their name is synonymous with quality. I've been a bit disappointed at the lack of affordable, quality blenders with glass pitchers, mostly-metal parts, but decided this blender would be a good compromise. A couple points that I noticed in other people's reviews: The pitcher can be hard to remove from the base, there's a weird smell when operating the blender, and there seems to be black grease at the base. First off, I did notice that it takes a firm twist to remove the pitcher from the base, but I think this is a good thing - it won't just tip over or come off while operating! You get used to it. Secondly, there seemed to be an odd smell the first few times I used it, but I equated it with "new car smell," and haven't had the issue since. As for the "grease" - I noticed some blackish liquid around the outside of the base after use a few times, and am wondering it it's lubricant for the blade. As long as it's not getting into my smoothies, I'm fine with it, and will keep an eye on it. I had to get used to going back and forth between the different functions to get it to blend the way I wanted, but that's just because I was used to a different blender. For instance, I make smoothies every day with frozen fruit, but the fruit can get stuck if you keep it on one speed. I find it best to put it on #1 ("stir"), and toggle between pulsing, then higher speeds for a smooth finish. The 7-cup capacity is also a plus (while still fitting under my kitchen cabinets!), so I don't have to worry about making multiples batches when I make a recipe. The American-made company is also a plus for me! And I love the dark blue, which matches my mixer. I can't speak to longevity of the mixer since I've only had it for a little while, and I do wonder if the preset buttons will wear out (as opposed to the simple toggle switch on my previous *****), but for now I'm pleased with my purchase....

My old blender finally went. I saw the video demo and it was accurate. The design forces everything down to mix. Plenty of power and quick mixing. Excellent buyRead More
It is noisy, and the locking system jar and motar base is hard to take jar off. Hope it does that when it is new. Other wise it does a good job.Read More
Smoothies everyday, grinds frozen berries in a few seconds..... easy to clean, don't have to disassemble to put in dishwasher, and has drain holes in base so water can drain as it cleans.Read More
This blender is fantastic! blends a whole apple and banana in about 10 seconds. Easy to clean and looks high end. The only thing I would change is the base is made of plastic not glass. I almost returned it for this reason but I am glad I kept it.Read More
I'm so pleased with this purchase. I was looking at the Ninja, which is a bit more expensive, when I saw an infomercial about the KitchenAid Diamond blender. It has vortex blade action, which means that it pulls your ingredients down from the top. That means I don't have to be bothered with going through th top of the blender while it's in use, in an effort to help the blender BLEND! And, as an added bonus, I happened to get mine with one of Overstock's bonus coupons! It subtracted a sizable amount from the already low price! Parenthetically, the coupon's are work it, guys! This blender takes ice cubes from my ice maker, and turns them into snow! So, there is no problem with blending frozen fruit. It's just a great buy, and a great blender. I'm so glad I went with KitchenAid and not that $200 Ninja!Read More
This thing could blend a metal pipe. It makes a mean margaritaRead More
I have been using a kitchen aid blender (the same unit) for the past 13-14 years. I've probably made 400 smoothies with it. The unit still works but the rubber drive unit keeps having to be replaced, and the container is glass. So I bought this unit ksb1575. on the 6th smoothy (that's pretty much all I use blenders for), it started smoking. I suspect a burned a diode. The top 2 speeds no longer work. This is junk. It is also very loud. I would not recommend this product.Read More
