just turned this on this morning. it has a great sound that i haven't noticed with past blenders which makes it seem powerful and efficient. i like that the jar is plastic which makes it lighter which really helps keep the weight down when there is liquid in the jar. the design is pretty nice but somehow no where near the sexy factor of the bowl mixer kitchenaid makes to go with it - that's my only complaint.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah Great Blender!
This blender works like a champ, and I love all the different settings. My only complaint would be that the soft start feature sometimes works as expected, and sometimes not at all, sending all the ingredients flying to the top. Other than that, I am very happy with the blender.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pool I found it to be too bulky for me.
So far I have only made smoothies in this container. This blender does not have the features that I expected like my other blender had.
although I must say it takes less time to blend than my other one.

I am an avid casual cooker. No training other than a few years in mom and pop restaurants, and lots of cook books. This blender has been my favorite addition to the kitchen. It replaced my 3rd blender and 2nd food processor (all Cuisinart or Hamilton Beach, and each dying within 6months-1 year). This blender has the ability to truly puree and pull ingredients through the "vortex." I've made soups, smoothies, ground nuts, and many other random experiments. It even was able to take ice cubes to snow for a quick snow cone party. The best part about this product, is the cleanup. The blade is attached, and no random hiding spots where food gets stuck.

Saw a video that compared KitchenAid to a well known V-Mix. The video maker favored the V-Mixer, but admitted the Kitchenaid accomplished the same results with no tamping required. I knew I had to try K-Aid, and I am so glad I did. I am throughly delighted.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by daisy201 Seems great, but no longevity
We bought this blender thinking we were "upgrading" to a good blender to make smoothies etc. We have had three pitchers over the course of a couple of years, all of which started leaking out of the bottom. We were assured with the last one that it was "new and improved." I guess so - after it started leaking it was so durable that it also shredded the base of the blender. So now not even a new pitcher would be usable. Very disappointed. Always thought Kitchenaid was a reliable brand.
