Diamond blending system
This blender is supplied with a jug that features a clever diamond design structure. Combined with the stainless steel blades, this creates a powerful vortex action when the blender is in use – drawing ingredients towards the blades to ensure that all your food is evenly blended. So you’ll enjoy perfectly smooth milkshakes and juices every time.
Forget messy, time-consuming clean up – this KitchenAid blender has many dishwasher safe components to make cleaning effortless. The jug, lid, ingredient cap and funnel can all be put in with your regular dishwashing load, so they’ll be sparkling clean and ready to be reused in no time. But don’t worry if you don’t have a dishwasher, all the parts rinse clean just as easily under a tap so you can quickly get back to creating delicious recipes.

Kitchen Aid magnetic Blender Review
The blender comes ready to use straight away. We opened the box and all we had to do was wash the jug and funnels with hot soapy water although they are dish washer safe as well but the kids couldn’t wait that long so hot soapy water it was.
I took a few minutes to read the instructions which are really clear and simple to follow although the machine is self-explanatory anyway. There are 4 automatic setting and a pulse function and variable speeds. The instructions give you a rough idea what ingredients would go in the blender for each setting which was handy to know.
To use the blender you simply remove the jug from the stand which is really simple to do and comes out by releasing a catch to the right hand side (very simple to do my son and daughter can both do this) you then take the lid from the jug and add you ingredients to the jug, you don’t have to finely chop everything the blender does that for you we have been just chucking it all and watching it do its thing. You always add the liquid first though and then then other ingredients on top. Once you have added everything you would like then replace the lid and click the jug back into the machine it will not blend until clicked in place. If you want some of the ingredients to remain slightly chunkier you can add these through the funnel which has two sizes to allow small or larger pieces to be added through the top during the cycle. This machine is totally flexible to your taste and requirements which I really like.
The jug capacity is 1.75 litres and has marks for ml, litres, Oz’s and cups on the side.
Icy Drinks/Smoothies – Cycle time is 1min 05 sec, items you would use are things like crushed ice frozen fruits (slightly defrosted). This cycle provides quick bursts of power to crush large amounts of hard foods such as ice, frozen fruit and vegetables. We have tried this and it has no issue crushing and blending ice to make great slush type drinks that the kids love with healthy fruit instead of sugar filled syrups that you get whilst out and about.
Milkshakes – Cycle time 1min 39sec, items to use would be thing like ice cream, yoghurts, cooked vegetable and meet for puree’s (great for making baby food), depending what your making you can add soft cheese so ricotta cottage cheese etc great to make cheesecake mix. This is also a great function for making quick pancake and waffle batter (liquid first then flour and other ingredients second). This is a long slow speed blend to make sure you get a smooth uniform consistency.
Soups and Sauces – Cycle time 1min 25sec, you can pretty much make any soup/sauce you wanted using this function, the jug is capable of taking hot food so we tried roasted peppers and some vegetable stock and it was delicious, you can make sauces, salad dressings, just experiment. The speed starts slow and gradually increases both speed and power as it makes light work of blending hot ingredients. . (If blending hot ingredients make sure you remove the funnels and use a tea towel over the top to allow the steam to escape safely).
Juice – Cycle time 1min 29sec, our favourite most used setting so far (sure that will change over the summer months). You can make fruit and vegetable smoothies really easily with this setting we just chucked it all in and the blender did all the work we didn’t even peel things like apples (you can do if you wish of course). This cycle is high speed and power so makes light work of the skins and seeds or high fibre foods making it really simple to just chuck everything in no need for lots or prep.
Pulse and Variable speed – We have experimented with these functions but I haven’t yet made anything substantial but it will be great to make homemade salsa dips, those kinds of things that you can make to your liking. We tried to make some bread crumbs with stale bread and it was brilliant as you can control how fine they go. Great function if you don’t want to blend it smooth and want things a little chunky and just lightly chopped.
We have had a brilliant few days trying the Kitchen Aid Magnetic Blender out and I can’t wait to keep trying new combinations out. We have found that they kids love drinking the smoothies and it has allowed me to get them to eat more fruit and vegetables, my daughter was very fussy about what she had when it came to fruit and vegetables but she is loving the different tastes she can create with the blender and has been having at least one a day. The twins have really enjoyed it as well and they love sitting at the side trying different ones out and hold their cup asking for more as soon as they have finished.
We love this Kitchen Aid magnetic blender and I know it will get a lot of use in our house. The only down side we have found is that it is a little noisy when blending nothing to serious but with what the blender is actually producing you would expect it to make some noise.
Pros: Child Friendly, Ease to use, Good build quality, Great for 5 a day, Looks goodCons: Noisy
