The KitchenAid blender belongs to a massive brand that many people are familiar with. It is commonly considered to be one of the best brands that you can get when it comes to kitchen products and tools.
The Kitchenaid 5 Speed Blenders
There are a few different types of blenders that they offer. The most popular is the traditionally designed counter-top 5 speed blender.
KitchenAid actually have a few different models in the five speed. All of them have the same look and similar design, but be warned, they are NOT all of the same quality… more on that a little later.
All of them come with a polycarbonate jar that is scratch, stain, and shatter resistant. They all have a soft-grip handle, 5 speeds and are roughly the same weight and dimensions.
If you prefer glass jars there are versions you can switch it out for, or you can buy stainless steel jars for blending certain things if the need arises
The Kitchenaid blender comes in a wide variety of colors making it easy to find one that will match your kitchen decor, whether you want a vivid color or something to match your stainless steel appliances.
One thing that many people like is that these KitchenAid blenders are easy to use; the buttons are very self-explanatory, so you won’t get confused when you are using one.
For an average home blender they are fairy powerful, making it easy to liquefy or blend anything in a very short period of time, but they are also made to be as quiet as possible… [Read Review]
KitchenAid Immersion Blenders
KitchenAid also has a line of great immersion blenders. They are perfect for small blending and chopping projects, but they can be used on just about anything.
Even for blending drinks in pitchers or glasses, or for blending soups right in the pot.
The newer models all have a lot of similarities. One is the many speeds that you can choose from when using it. This makes it easy to do as little or as much blending or chopping as you need. All speeds are easily controlled by a dial on the top of the blender.
They also have easy to switch accessories, which makes using and cleaning simple.
If you are specifically buying this blender for doing a lot of quick chopping, such as for salsas, there is actually a chopping attachment to make the job easier.
You also have a whisk attachment for making short work of eggs and desserts without using a big mixer.
There is even an extension to submerge the chopping end further than 8″ into the food.
Many people highly recommend the KitchenAid blender when shopping for immersion blenders because they are very durable.
The biggest complaint that is usually made about them is that they are a little top heavy. But this is generally outweighed by how long they last and what a great job they do.
A lot of people also praise them for being some of the quietest immersion blenders they’ve ever used… [Read Review]

The blender base is constructed of heavy die-cast metal for added stability and comes in red, white, and black.
The blades on the KitchenAid 4 Speed Blender are patented stainless steel and can stir, mix, liquefy, blend, puree, and chop vegetables… [Read Review]
More About KitchenAid
While they make many different kitchen items, from spoon holders to large appliances, KitchenAid originally made their name with small electrics such as kitchen aid mixers and blenders.
As of 2009, the Kitchenaid company has been around for 90 years. In 1919 their first stand-up mixer was invented. When an executive’s wife commented that it was the “best kitchen aid” the brand was born and patented.
Something that has been perpetually admired about this brand of kitchen items is that they are generally made to be versatile.
The Kitchen Aid stand mixers in particular are supposed to be used for many different things. There are dozens of attachments you can get that you will likely use on a near-daily basis.
