Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Blending arm falls out

Submitted by Maggie - 9/27/2017

I was so excited when I received this as a gift last weekend. I used it for the first time last night to blend a soup I had made. I was so disappointed as the blender arm kept falling out. As soon as I find out where it was purchsed I will return it and buy a different brand. Kitchenaid is supposed to be the best but this mixer is a total let down.

Submitted by The Baker - 8/17/2017

I love to have this handy for blending creamy soups, so that I don't have to pour the mixture into a blender, pour it out, put in more, blend, pour it out, etc. It saves three steps at least. It also doesn't take much room for storage.

Quality Cop

Submitted by Shake Maker - 7/17/2017

New Blender has balance issues. I have to rotate the blending arm to a position different that the alignment marks as designated on the blending arm. This vibration causes the liquid to spatter..., not good KitchenAid! I've ordered new blending arms for two of the blenders that have this concern. ALSO, the markings on the mixing cup are no longer laser etched (as shown in KitchenAid marketing photos). This makes reading the scale VERY difficult. Please update photos and advise me of your course of action.

Hand blender is fun and easy to use!

Submitted by I'm the mama - 7/6/2017

I bought this blender on a whim. It was small enough to stay on the countertop, it was a gorgeous blue color and it's a KitchenAid product (big fan!!) so how could I go wrong?! I found it easy to use. I make smoothies mostly and the ingredients blend together so easily. My only complaint is that the blender tips over unless I stand it exactly right. The cord has remained very stiff from being boxed so it is awkwardly turning the blender around if I am not precise about standing it up on the counter. Not a huge complaint and I'll continue to use it and no doubt the cord will relax with use. I'm considering buying a second blender to make my own laundry soap.

Submitted by Kris - 5/19/2017

This little thing is great. I use it as an apartment size replacement for a food processor. It makes dressings and sauces so much easier and much more manageable portion sizes. I do wish it would puree a little finer occasionally, like a blender, but it'll do for now. It can also be a little hard to get the two pieces to come apart, especially once it's been used.
