The KitchenAid KSB1575CER 5-speed diamond blender is a user-friendly blender with a diamond-blending system which serves in ensuring a uniform blending of food ingredients within its blending jar.
As the name suggests, it has multiple speed settings (five in total) with which it operates to mix and liquefy food ingredients. There are pulse modes on the speed control panel which work with the speeds to perform staggered blending of ingredients. The pulse settings can also be used in timed intervals while crushing ice cubes when the controls are set to ‘Crush Ice’ mode.
The blender has one-piece blending jar which has a 60-ounce capacity. It is dishwasher-safe and therefore easy to clean and maintain after use. It is also safe for daily use as it is designed with BPA-free plastic materials. The blending jar Diamond Pitcher design is actually patented and is shatter-proof. The material is also strong enough to resist scratches and stains from any source.
This appliance is powered by a strong motor and stainless steel blades which work in tandem with electronic speed controls of the blender to create a vortex blending motion so powerful that it makes very impressive blending results possible.
The unit is backed by a 0.9 horsepower motor which has a Soft Start feature. This feature essentially starts the blender’s motor at a much slower speed at first in order to pull the ingredients closer into the blade. It kicks into gear slowly and gradually senses the thickness of the ingredients inside it using the integrated Intelli-Speed Motor Control technology.
The KitchenAid blender then adjusts itself according to the speed setting which was selected at the start of the blending process. By this action, the blender limits the occurrence of splattering of the blender’s contents and performs its task at a constant speed. The different modes available on the speed control settings of this product are stir, chop, mix, puree and liquefy which can be selected to suit the food processing task at hand.
Another benefit of this slow start action is that the food ingredients quickly gets blended to the desired consistency before the heat generated by the blender’s motor begins to affect the jar’s contents.
The other speeds available on the control panel are the ‘crush ice’ and ‘pulse’ modes which are mostly utilized when making crushing ice cubes, preparing frozen beverages or smoothies.
Within the structure of this appliance is a steel-reinforced coupler which transfers power from the motor onto the blender’s blade for effective blending to occur. This coupler, which is basically an element with a dozen interlocking teeth, is coated to ensure a much quieter blending operation.
The blending jar is fitted with an ergonomic non-slip carrying handle for extra mobility. The base of the unit, where the speed settings are located, is quite sturdy in itself and consists primarily of die-cast metal.
That this product is versatile one is not in doubt as is evident from its decisive crushing action on ice cubes which it dispatches in no time at all. Several types of ingredients can also be processed by this blender by choosing any of the desired speeds settings on the control dial.
The covering lid of the blender can also serve as a 2-ounce measuring accessory.
