Budget Pick: KitchenAid 5-Speed Blender with 56-Ounce BPA-Free Pitcher
If you just want a basic blender – For occasional blending
If you’re planning to use a blender just a few times a week, or you want a machine starts to make smoothies and Purees, we like KitchenAid 5 Speed Blender. It has defeated all regular blender in our tests last year, and in a year long trial, we have found it works well for rustic smoothies.
In tests our vitamins, KitchenAid easily blend frozen fruit and kale. It leaves a lot of similar texture to smoothies softer than Vitamix or Oster Versa (your attention can feel the texture of unprocessed berry seeds, for example), but it was on par with the breville hemisphere (which cost about $100 more).
Vortices on KitchenAid 5 Speed Blender is really impressive. In our testing white beans, tongue easily pull beans and kale down blade, mix everything into a smooth puree without stopping the engine to tamp down any components.
The KitchenAid 5 Speed Blender take a moment to crush ice, but not so long that it melts the excess water. The cells are smooth and deserved cocktail.
To be clear, this is no Oster Versa and certainly not a Vitamix but for a fraction of the price it do a good enough job. Grinder other we’ve tested at this price is either feeling cheap or very large, or producing a total odor combustion engine while running. We do not love the hard plastic lid on the blender, and how the clip jar on base takes some getting used to, but beyond that we have no complaints.
Blender does not come with a recipe book. Like Vitamix and Oster, KitchenAid average also BPA-free made with Tritan plastic.
The KitchenAid 5 Speed past without a spot in reviews editor. In 2009, the American Test Kitchen blender chose this as its budget choice, but it withdrew the offer after the readers and editors bought this blender found their machines leak average leakage or cracking after less than a year. Some reviewers said Amazon KitchenAid 5 Speed they Blender leaked from where the blade is bolted to the bottom of a shaker.
That said, almost all conventional blender we view user reviews complain about the bottle breaks and leaks and motor burn out quickly. Correspondingly, user reviews KitchenAid no worse than any other mill that we have tested. A lot of negative comments go something like “great blender until it died.” If you use it a lot, the KitchenAid may not last you for many years, but we think it is the best in its price range.
Co-author Lesley Stockton also use a blender in a very long time (six years in the kitchen at the Martha Stewart trial and two years in his kitchen) and recommend it to people who do not need health strong intensity of a Vitamix. Tess Masters also recommends the KitchenAid 5 Speed, and Real Simple assessments as blender best overall of 52 models tested it, said, “This model boasts a powerful engine but quiet, and compact size (16 inches high) make it a cinch to store. ”
The KitchenAid 5 Speed comes with a one year warranty.
