I retired my 40 year old Oster blender because it would crush ice, leaving big chunks no matter how long it ran. With this KitchenAid blender I just press the "crush ice" button and it begins to pulse, and 30 to 40 seconds later I have my Iced Coffee. It would have been nice if it had been less expensive, but quality is worth the added cost.
I expected a quality blender being a KitchenAid and it has performed excellently for me. It chops, mixes, purees, liquifies and stirs very well no matter what I put in it. It breaks up ice remarkedly fast. I wish it were a bit quieter, but the functionality of it far outweighs the noise it makes.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Product looked as it was pictured.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This KitchenAid Blender was above and beyond the quality I expected.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The blender functions as well as it was described. The only thing I do not like is it is not as quiet as I would like it to be..
I have rentals and have bought many blenders and you get what you pay for. This blender while on the expensive side blenders daquires and smoothies to perfection. The weight of the base will surprize you it's heavy nothing cheap here. The plastic pitcher was a concern, but it is well made, easy to clean and much lighter weight. I also have a oster beehive I like very well, this is better and cost more. kitchenaid ksb560 is the bomb.

Our old cheap blenders faded away so we decided to buy a quality one. This one powers through ice with ease and blends fruit equally easilly. It is a joy to use. What I really like is that it doesn't leak and holds a lot of liquid.

I've used many blenders over the years and this one stands tall above the others. I'm guessing it's the horsepower of the motor combined with the solid construction/design? We make shakes with frozen fruit and whole kale (among other ingredients) and our last blender left chunks and required chewing--something a shake shouldn't require. This blender liquifies everything, quickly, and makes perfect shakes. This blender is a powerhouse that works exactly as a blender should. On top of that, it's easy to clean and the plastic 'jar,' even with a fixed blade system, is a cinch to clean.

I previously had a Smoothie Maker and that didn't crush ice as well as this KitchenAid does. I've used it half a dozen times and there was no leaking as in other reviews so I'm sure that issue has been corrected.
I haven't tried it for regular processing but I'm sure it won't be an issue.
IS A WAY BETTER QUAILTY PRODUCT THEN THOSE OTHER CHEAP BLENDERS. SO FAR HAS HELD UP WITH 2 TEEN-AGE DAUGTERS. SEEMS TO BE A FANTASTIC BLENDER TO HAVE IN ANY HOME. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE TO GET THIS PRODUCT.
