This blender is one of the best blenders i have ever bought.The design is so simplistic but very effective,it was incredibly easy to use and very versatile.It could chop ice block easily and in a matter of seconds it could also chop all day long without it getting any slower or worse.The only problem i had was that i found it very hard to clean afterwards otherwise it is just perfect.Another impressive feature of this blender is the speed at which it chops just about anything is remarkable and not just its slicing speed even the time it takes for the blades to reach their maximum speed and the time it takes to turn on and start up is significantly shorter than the time it takes the average blender

Ease of Cleaning
I was very disappointed while cleaning this blender,everything about it up to that pint had been magnificent but the leftover items in the blender stuck to the blades making it very difficult to clean so much so that it brought the whole quality of the blender down.

I bought this blender about a year ago needing an new one. The look of it is great. Nice buttons and a good sized cup make the look of this model outstanding.

Pros- The speed is great. With several speeds mixing is easy for anything. My favorite is to make soup. I make large batches, so I need a large blender. The speed overall is great. Making several different things such as soup or crushing ice is easy. Just a few bumps makes quick work of any task.

Cons- The lid is less than perfect. It must be sealed all the way before starting. Any part of the lid that is still off will cause a huge leak (found out that the hard way). Also, one must hold the lid down while blending. I would not like to hold it down, but this necessary while blending. Additionally, one must stop and move the contents around a lot. This part is a real pain. The middle will be like the eye of the hurricane, completely empty and the contents will be on the sides. Not fun.

Conclusion: I would buy this brand of blender again, but I would do more research first and find one that had a better lid and better blending ability.

    Comments about KitchenAid Diamond Vortex 5-Speed Blender:

    I use this for smoothies almost daily, and it works great. It has no problem blending ice or frozen fruit. It makes fast work of leafy greens, and doesn't leave little leaf bits in the smoothie. It's about as easy to clean as most blenders. It doesn't have a tamper, so if you need something thick, you'll have to blend, mix, blend, mix, etc.

      Comments about KitchenAid Diamond Vortex 5-Speed Blender:

      I bought this kitchen aid blender for my mom about 2 years ago and it's still working like new. Her previous blender was also a kitchen aid but after about 10 years and a lot of work it stopped working. She uses her blender daily so it definitely has longevity. It's not too loud like the ninja blender but I don't think she would care either way about the noise. It's easy to clean and no leaks.

      Does NOT chop ice very well and dulls blade out quickly. Good for blending non-frozen food. Mine lasted for about a year.

        I use this to make smoothies. It is easy to clean. It is not for crushing ice. It is highly recommended for a small kitchen

              I love this product and would recommend to everyone. It is the best mixer I have had in a long, long time. I would not buy any different mixers. I love the way it crushes ice,, and also love making homemade smoothies with this mixer. Love KitchenAid brand more than in the past.

                  The blender is extremely fast and blends items in no time. In that price range, I don't think there are any other blender available that is better than this one!
                  Blending Power
                  The blending speed is good but not that great. One would definitely expect a better blending speed in that price range.
                  Versatile
                  It is definitely a versatile blender and does the job pretty well. It can mix anything you put in the blender.
                  Ease of Use
                  It should not be a problem using this blender. It does not come with complicated settings.
                  Ease of Cleaning
                  If you cleaning it for the the first time, it will take some time, but once you got used to with it, you can clean it within minutes.
                  Durability
                  My blender is going strong till now without much problem although it's only few months old.
