About the KitchenAid KSB565
Ease of Use:
Blending is easy with the KitchenAid KSB565ER. Simply place your ingredients in the pitcher and choose your speed on the 5-speed selection panel on this blender. The speed options are: Stir, Chop, Mix, Puree and Liquefy. You can obtain your desired consistency using one or a combination of these features. Moreover, the manual to this blender is incredible. If you read the instructions thoroughly before using, and refer to the manual often for its various uses, this blender could last longer than many reviews suggest. The manual gives specific instructions on how to achieve certain consistencies for baby foods, purees, juices, batters, blended fruits and veggies, soups, hot foods, etc.
Motor and Horsepower:
This blender has a 0.9-horsepower, fueling a robust stainless steel blade system that can chop right through most foods. Such power comes handy when trying to to combine various speeds in order to get an even consistency. However, the design of the motor is questionable, as the blades spin into pitcher coupler sometimes shredding the rubber from the inside, after several months of use. This is a flaw that should be corrected by KitchenAid.
Noise and Space:
The KitchenAid KSB565ER 5-Speed Blender has a Die-Cast base that maintains stability to control noise during use. Because of the power and robust quality of the blender, the noise factor is somewhat moderate in comparison to other blenders. Unfortunately, the noise factor doesn’t decrease based on how hard the ingredients are – it is loud, even in the presence of liquids and smooth ingredients. This is disappointing considering the extensive measures in place to reduce noise such as the pitcher coupler. At least in the size front, this blender is a standard size and should fit comfortably on any kitchen countertop.
Options and Features:
The glass pitcher easily detaches from the base for washing with your regular dishes, in the sink or the dishwasher. It has a convenient spout to allow for easy pouring. Furthermore, the four stainless steel blades work together to provide even, consistent blending for foods of all types. This together with the fact that you can puree, liquefy, chop and mix makes it rather versatile indeed. The Stay Put Lid covers the blender to keep your liquids and purees inside! This helps make clean up much easier.
Coming to the things this blender can do, you can use the puree option to make sauces, soups, baby food, oatmeal. Simply add the fruit, vegetable or meat and a little water, milk or broth to blend. Alternatively, the KitchenAid KSB565ER allows you to join in with the healthy juicing craze! Take all your favorite vegetables and fruits and liquefy for maximum health benefits. Make drinks like juices and smoothies to your desired consistency. You can also use the liquefy option to make dressings and sauces. You can enjoy chopped fruits, vegetables and even ice. Simply combine the Chop and Pulse buttons for easy chopped foods. And finally, the Mix Feature allows you to mix ingredients like batters as well as break up smooth substances that are frozen or exceptionally thick.
