Are you looking for a blender that will offer you excellent value for the price? Then you should certainly consider buying the KitchenAid Diamond Blender. This is hands down one of the best options available on the market today. It comes with similar features to those found in our top pick, which certainly indicates that it is a pretty good option.
First, the KitchenAid Diamond Blender comes in a sturdy, high quality build. It has a plastic jug, which can contain up to 1.75 liters of smoothies. This plastic construction means that it isn’t as expensive as other models that have a glass jug. It also improves the durability. If it happens to fall from your hand, you won’t worry about the jug shattering. Aside from the material of construction, the KitchenAid Diamond Blender comes with a jug that you can place with the handle to the left or right, depending on what you want. This handle is one of the best things about the jug too. It comes with a silicone build, which makes it so much easier to hold. In addition, the lid features a large loop that allows you to easily remove it whenever you want.
It also comes with a lovely design. The sleek appearance means that it will look excellent on your kitchen countertop. You can have it in a variety of colors as well, so you can choose that which will suit you requirements. Another thing that we liked is that the base is quite small. This means that you can place it on different places without taking up plenty of useful space. Nevertheless, it is quite tall, so you should consider the height of where you plan on placing it.
Performance-wise, you’ll be hardpressed to find a blender that offers performance as good as what you’d get from the KitchenAid Diamond Blender. During the test, we used different types of food with varying hardness and toughness, and we were left with good results across foods. It has powerful blades that chop food quickly. Just as with the Ninja model above, the has the ability to crush ice. Therefore, every smoothie you make has the potential to be a cool, refreshing drink.
There are three speed options, although these aren’t listed as fast , medium or similar names. Instead, you have the chop, mix, and puree. These designations make it easier for you to know the right speed for your blending. Many of the blenders on the market come with warnings against blending hot food in them, but not so with this model. It has the ability to blend hot foods for you. In fact, there is a hot food preset setting for that purpose.
We really enjoyed using this blender for green smoothies as the blade cuts it up without leaving any lumps.
What do we love it for? There are several reasons to choose this over others. It gives excellent value for money, has a large capacity, and is comfortable to use regardless of your weaker hand.
What were we disappointed with? The speed settings could certainly be better. It could have been made with more speed control.
