There are so many choices to pick from when it comes to high-performance blenders. However, it takes a bit of insider knowledge and an in-depth understanding of these gadgets to make the right choice. Of course, one can always go traditional about it and stick to the peer references and recommendations; however, the danger there is that every user application is pretty unique. What works for Peter won’t necessarily do it for Paul too right? It’s always wiser to consider the actual merits of these convenient machines and then make an informed choice henceforth. One of the most talked-about blenders on the market is the KitchenAid KSB1570SL model. I’m sure we can all agree that the name is quite a mouthful, let’s just refer to it as the KAK as we explore its merits, de-merits and why the heck homemakers seem to be all over it!
There’s no denying the exquisite overall look of this particular beauty. It’s pretty modern with a sleek and polished finish that adds a cool metallic gleam to any kitchen. The body features a convenient pad with the control buttons laid out neatly. The KitchenAid KSB1570SL blender measures approximately 9 square inches on the base and it stands at the height of exactly 15.2 inches when fully assembled. Do not underestimate the device however because of its modest size because it weighs a full 10 pounds and can be dropped pretty easily if improperly handled.
The KitchenAid KSB1570SL has an impressive five-speed operation that will cover all your blending needs efficiently. The blender is fully automated for the utmost convenience. This allows you to simply engage your desired speed and let it blend away while you relax. There’s also a pulse mode for added convenience in case you want to monitor and control your progress personally precisely.
A steel coupler ensures a more direct power delivery to reduce inefficiency and increase power abilities. This is all achieved with a 0.9 hp motor that operates smoothly and quietly. It also features an LED lighting indication system for speed selection.
No matter how powerful or fast your blender m be, its capacity will always remain the most important factor. It all depends on how exactly you intend to utilize it however, bigger is surely always better because it can accommodate both the small and the large blends right? In any case, the KAK model takes up to 56 ounces of ingredients in any single blend. Now, this is impressive for sure. I dare anyone to blend more than this at one go. Whether you’re blending a margarita mix for a ladies’ night or a bunch of kale for a juice fest, the blender’s got your back! The blender also features tight sealing capabilities that will ensure a neat operation with no spills on your kitchen floor.
What makes it special?
- The ‘sixth’ sense
This has been one of the Kitchen Aid’s greatest selling point for this model. The device has an intelligent detection system that regulates rotor speed to a constant speed as selected by the user. This is also where the blender surpasses all other competing brands that claim false power delivery. With the KAK, you are assured of consistent-power delivery which ultimately ensures an even blend that is smooth and uniform in texture.
Are you wondering how it all happens? It’s pretty simple; at the start of blending, when the ingredients are still coarse and unyielding, the motor delivers the high power to match the selected blending speed. As the texture softens and becomes easier to crush, the motor reduces its power to retain its speed and avoid overspending. Pretty smart right? The blender has a sense of its own to help you in perfecting your blend.
- Tougher Disposition
The KAK blender boasts of a set of stainless steel blades that will tear into anything that you throw in with utmost ease. This is a big relief for most users who are sick of bendy blades that falter at the first sign of tough ingredients like coffee beans or just about any dry seeds. You can also make your crushed-ice snow cones with ease, no big feat for the tough blades!
The tough disposition of this model is also quite obvious in the design of the base fixture. It is made of a metal cast for a more formidable base. This base can contain the high powered motor and hoist all the upper fixtures safely and securely. Unlike the generic plastic bases of most gadgets, this base cannot be damaged easily unless of course you deliberately take a hammer to it.
- Pre-set Speeds
Determining the appropriate speed setting for each operation is not always as obvious as one may think. Some recipes can be pretty ambiguous when it comes to blending speed and degree. This is where the KAK model pre-set speeds come in handy. The blender manual guide gives a pretty informed guideline as to the appropriate setting to use for the basic applications. Simply select the appropriate pre-set speed without doing any calibration at all. There are five of them, each designated for a different category of blending with regards to the power delivery; chop, stir, mash, mix and liquefy.
There are always those enticing features that are meant to capture our attention when making a consumer decision right? Despite not being directly linked to the blender performance, these features are also some strong selling points.
For the KAK modeL, the main alluring feature is probably the soft start. Now, one thing we all know about these power blenders is that they kick up quite a noisy racket, especially in the first few seconds. Your ears go from peaceful to agonizingly noisy in an instant which can be pretty uncomfortable, to say the least. The KitchenAid KSB1570SL model, however, avoids this nuisance. It starts on a lower note and gradually works up to its selected high power rotation to allow your ears and surroundings to ease into the disturbance more softly.
The model also offers a pretty useful auto-shutdown facility in the event of overfilling. The last thing you need is to affect the integrity of the jug. If you get distracted, the smart blender’s got your back! It will simply shut down with a beeping indication that signifies overfill. The jar is also conveniently marked for more accurate measuring and the blender comes with a filler cap for adding more ingredients mid-blend.
Safety and Maintenance
Most consumers overlook this part when considering a new gadget. They only realize later that they just bought themselves a time bomb that will terrorize their household with safety hazards. Some gadgets are also impossible to maintain in a pristine condition. Never make this error, the blender is one gadget that can last for decades in the house if properly taken care of. You always need to make sure that you will be able to maintain your new purchase!
The KitchenAid KSB1570SL blender has however made maintenance pretty easy for the user. It is easily disassembled into smaller and more manageable components. All these components are absolutely dishwasher safe. They can also be hand washed just as easily without any fear of cuts or damage.
A solid structural assembly also ensures that the blender is fragmentation-free. No part will fly off to spoil your blend at any time which might pose an intense choking hazard. Just ensure that you assemble all components properly during maintenance, another thing which has been made pretty easy with foolproof designs that fit together easily yet firmly.
There’s also no need to worry about toxic poisoning from your blender. The KAK model is absolutely BPA free in all the blending regions that come in contact with your precious blend. This ensures a healthy operation that doesn’t put the consumer at risk.
The blender is properly insulated against electric shocks or power surges. It also comes with a very convenient user guide that details all the proper maintenance procedures necessary to keep your device in tip-top condition. To top it all off, the manufacturer offers a solid one year warranty for all parts of the blender in case any issues arise during its operation. There is also a dedicated customer service support available either directly or through the selected retailer.
The model is generally perfect; however, for the sake of nit-picking, the solid base fixture will require more intricate cleaning due to its permanent attachment design. This however only improves its hygiene properties even more.
It’s pretty obvious that the KitchenAid KSB1570SL is in a class of its own with all these discussed impressive features that cannot be found on any other blender. The model is undoubtedly a useful addition to any kitchen and its tough disposition makes it an all-rounder that can handle just about any task with ease.
