Rated 5 out of 5 by Smoothie1 simples, easy to clean
I tried 3 other Kitchen Aide blender before I found this one. The Vortex style was very nice, just too tall for me. I'm short and having to reach eye level to add ingredients was not convenient.
Then I tried 2 others that did not have the pitcher that clicked onto the base. I returned both because the pitcher rattled so bad during processing that I had to
hold my hand on it the whole time or it moved itself around the counter. Finally I found the one I have now. The size is perfect and the pitcher clicks on and off the base gently enough with one hand that it makes preparing food easy.
Overall I am happy but almost gave up on a well-recommended Kitchen Aide due to the above mentioned comments. However, I do wish it had words in place of numbers on the speed buttons, like the other models do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulieTucson Powerful, large capacity and easy to operate.
I love this blender for making smoothies with crushed ice; pureeing yams and pumpkins for seasonal beverages and pie fillings. It almost makes my food processor un-necessary. Love it and it may be the last one I ever buy! I have and use regularly several Kitchen Aid appliances including a 27-year old 5-quart mixer, a 5-year old hand mixer and a 10 year old toaster. Love the appliances!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JayBeeDubya Great product for the price.
I am very pleased with this blender. I mostly use it for making fruit/veggie smoothies, bullet-proof coffee and frozen booze.
* The blender carafe is made out of a high quality plastic that is dishwasher safe.
* Multiple blend settings with some serious power on the higher end.
* Cost me around $50.
* Looks nice enough without being too "loud".
* Easy to clean, most times I don't even have to scrub it. Just blend water and a drop of soap, rinse and dry.
* Blends easily with no poking required.
* Vibrations can cause the blender to scoot around the counter.
* The plastic "teeth" that grip the carafe to the base seam to wear down quickly (haven't noticed any issues other that aesthetics).
* If the blender isn't held down when in use the plastic part that attaches to the underside of the carafe can grind a bit, causing a slightly unpleasant smell. Only happens on faster settings.
* The buttons aren't exactly intuitive, but they aren't confusing and only took me a few minutes to figure out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Timalot Loosens and leaks
I bought this for daily use by two teenagers and it worked well for about 6 months. Then the nut at the base of the pitcher began loosening with each use making for a messy clean-up. I tried using removable thread locker, which solved the loosening problem, but not the leaks. It seems to be oozing out of the bushing during use. I would not buy this one had I known.
