KSB1570SL Review

The machines sturdy motor, stainless steel blades, large BPA free pitcher, and electronic speed controls that work together to form a powerful movement that is fast enough to blend ingredients into smooth and delicious smoothies.

Besides, the Intelli-Speed Motor Control will sense ingredients and maintain optimal speed to crush all parts. Its pulse mode works with the crushed ice, chop, stir, liquefy, and puree speeds for a great operation.

The excellent soft start feature starts the machine at a slower pace to push foods into the blade and fast increases to the chosen speed setting. The Steel-Reinforced Coupler offers efficient, direct power transfer from the motor to the blade for excellent blending. The couplers coating helps maintain quiet operation.

Design and Features

One thing you will notice about KitchenAid 5 speed blender is its classy design. It has maintained the vintage look. Its base measures 7 inches wide and 9 inches deep which is smaller than most commercial blenders.

It also comes at 17 inches in height, which is an average for typical kitchen counters. The KitchenAid blender narrower and more rounded design gives the machine a sleeker look. Its 60-ounce pitcher makes it one of the most generous devices you can find.

Just like Vitamix 5200 review and Ninja intellisense accessories, do not assume the blender’s narrow and tall pitcher will hinder you from anything. The fact that most brands favor the short broader pitcher style should not worry you.

The KitchenAid classic blender performs excellently if not better than the models with the broader pitchers because of the narrow pitcher bottom; the blades get more contact with ingredients that might be stuck on the sides.

Additionally, since there is less space at the bottom, the machine forces food to the top. It then goes down the pitcher and is blended once more.

The lid design is a marvel on its own. It features both the inner lid and a primary lid that you can take off during blending to add more food. When you remove the inner cover, it leaves a large space enough for more ingredients.

Easy To Use and Clean

You will find KSB1570SL classic blender extremely easy to use because of the easy to use control panel. You can quickly lock the pitcher onto the base with a clockwise twist. Always ensure that you have locked the pitcher well or the machine will make much noise when you are blending.

Cleaning is easy too. Naturally, because of its very sharp blades, not many will be enthusiastic about hand washing them.

Fortunately like Nutribullet vs Ninja, KitchenAid five-speed blender comes with only three parts that you need to clean. You cannot separate the blades from the pitcher, so you need to worry about the pitcher, the inner lid, and the original cover.

When cleaning, you can fill the pitcher halfway with warm water; add some drops of dish soap, lock into the base then blade. Rinse it and let it dry. The classic blender also offers you an option of using a dishwasher.


Design and features are critical elements of any kitchen appliance. However, if performance is not excellent, they do not matter. KitchenAid 5-speed classic blender is a great performer.

It can crush ice easily; make delicious smoothies, pancake batter, pesto, and many more. Although the blender cannot make snow from ice, its ice crush preset is excellent and works fast and well.

It gives you many options, and the preset you want depends a lot on the ingredients you are using to make smoothies. If you are going to blend beets, kale, or other sturdy, fibrous foods into smoothies, you will need to choose to liquefy or puree at first.

For softer ingredients like fresh strawberries or bananas, the puree or mix preset will be okay. Additionally, this machine gives you much control over how you make your smoothie.

When you are blending hard ingredients with this machine, add a few tablespoons of water or a liquid you prefer to the pitcher. It will make the work of the device easier. Just like Vitamix E310 Explorian, the blender does a great job on leafy greens. It performs well and delivers uniform, chunky drinks in seconds.

The height and location of the blades or shape of the pitcher do not leave dry foods wedged in corners under the blades or against the pitcher. It also mixes powdered ingredient with liquids to form a smooth batter.

Final Thoughts

The KitchenAid KSB1570SL five-speed classic blender is a fantastic machine that offers much for its price. It can crush and pulverize ingredients fast and efficiently to give you your favorite smoothies in seconds.

It will be a worthy addition to your kitchen and one of the best blenders under $100. The intelligent speed motor control and steel blades coupled with diverse speed settings enable you to handle various types of foods with ease.
