This blender is outstanding. We've never had a blender that can make crushed ice so quickly and finely. This baby can even make sno-cones. You can have perfect smoothies in about a minute and it is great for soups. The unit is heavy and well-made. The shape of the jar is nice too. You can easily pour from it without it dripping. And the size of the jar is large enough to make a very generous batch of margaritas. Kitchenaid makes great products and this one is no exception.Read More
I was a little worried about buying a refurbished blender, but I should not have been. The blender arrived within 4 days and was packaged exceptionally well. When I opened the inside box, I was surprised to find a blender that looked brand new. Mainly, I need a blender for frozen fruit smoothies. I have tested the blender on its ability to handle frozen raspberries (small) and frozen strawberries (large). The blender quickly and successfully clopped and blended the fruit with juice and yogurt without leaving chunks. I did have to scrape once to push back some yogurt that had worked its way up the side and was not getting incorporated. But that was all. With my previous blender (an Oster) I had to stop and scrape all the time and was still left with frozen/unblended bits in the smoothie. What I like best about this blender, though, is that the jar/carafe is one piece on the bottom so there's no cracking, loosening and leaking of separate parts and seals (which was the reason I had to throw away my last blender after only a year). This also makes the (Kitchen Aid) blender jar easier to wash by hand or in the dishwasher.Read More
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.Read More
We were looking for a blender that would make smooth smoothies and be able to grind ice. This machine does the job very well and easily. The price was perfect for such a great product.Read More
GREAT blender, especially for anything that requires ICE. I bought this refurbished blender 2 1/2 yrs ago and it has withstood 3 teenagers blending ice cubes into smoothies and protien shakes. I just bought 2 more for the last to leave home and set up thier oun kitchen. I highly recommmend this blender. Another homerun by O!Read More
Love, love this blender! It's some kind of powerful and doesn't require very long mixing. I make lots of soups and smoothies and like to puree and this makes the job so easy. I like the design of the wide mouth jar that is the same all the way to the bottom. When this is on high power you have to stand with it and hold it or it will dance right off you counter and it is pretty loud. I don't mind though as it does the job very quickly and you don't have to open it up and stir things around like in most blenders. Don't be afraid to purchase re-furbished, I've done so with numerous items from O and have always been very satisfied. Also, if for some reason you are not satisfied, O has the absolute best customer service.Read More
I own a bunch of beach rental condos where every blender I ever bought under $XXX was a disaster, with a burned out motor in less than 12 months due to the heavy daquiri and margarita-making needs for crushing ice. I have just bought my EIGHTH blender - just like this one - including my primary home and lakehouse and have only replaced ONE in 5 years of owning these. It seriously blows away anything else and I'm a smoothie drinker almost every morning. LOVE LOVE LOVE the one-piece polycarbonate design so you're nor removing a gasket to clean it. One piece with no parts to worry about. I purchase a ton of items on OS due to have the rental homes but this is probably my number one repeat purchase.Read More

How to Use a Blender as a Juicer

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.
