KitchenAid Diamond Blenders can crush, chop and mix fresh ingredients quickly and efficiently. The 1.75 litre jug has a diamond shaped design, which pulls ingredients together for really thorough blending. Mix milk and fresh fruit to prepare healthy milkshakes for the kids or pile high with roasted veggies to make your own pasta sauce. It even has a special soft start button, which is great to use when you’re blending hot food. The speed steadily increases to prevent splashing on the lid and clumping on the blades.

Great performance and beautiful design
The Stylish and sleek new Kitchen Aid diamond blender provides excellent performance and looks great in the kitchen. This powerful blender has four button presets. Chop, mix, purée and liquefy. It also has 3 special functions: hot foods, crush ice and pulse mode, which allows a "pulse at any speed" feature. I loved the light BPA free diamond shaped plastic jug which contains stainless steel blades. The jug is a generous size 1.75L , easy to wash and it has clearly visible imperial and metric measurements. The pitcher is dishwasher safe. The lid has an ingredient cup with measurement markings on it.
I already tried my favourite smoothies and soups in it and I have to say that it blends really well. The soups are so creamy and smooth, I was never able to get the same level of smoothness before with my previous blenders. However, this Kitchen Aid blender cannot handle super thick blends such as humus. I tried to make humus in it and it did not work. The ingredients just got stuck to the sides of the blender. So make sure it has enough water in it for a good result.
I really liked the hot soups feature. It starts at a low speed and then slowly ramps up to higher speed to avoid splashing hot liquid. The blender has a chop feature which is really good for preparing different sauces and dips, as well a variety of fruit salads. You can even grate cheese in this blender. My family uses it almost every day, there are so many different tasty dishes you can prepare with it.
I found that the lid is really difficult to remove, so if you have an issue with the strength in your fingers, this blender is probably not a good one for you. But if like me you have small children then this feature is really good for you as it makes this blender super safe. No child would be able to open the lid and stick his/her little fingers in it.
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for moneyCons: None
