And I just used my blender this morning

With the return to school, I am back into Smoothie Season, otherwise known as the breakfast of champions for surly teens who aren’t awake enough for breakfast until around 2nd period or so. My blender and I have a deep and close relationship, is my point.

You may remember that after some research, I shared with you how delighted I was to find a deal on my KitchenAid 5-speed blender, last year, after discovering that it out-performed even several more expensive brands.

Well, today Amazon has this very blender in white at an all-time lowest price—just $55 shipped.

This blender is a tank and I can recommend it wholeheartedly. Ours makes smoothies five mornings a week, chewing through frozen fruit with ease. It cleans up easily and the extra-large jar size is nice, too. And it’s also possible that we sometimes use it for margaritas on the weekend, but I can neither confirm or deny that rumor.


  1. I have this blender and it is a powerhouse. It is a bit loud (my children ask if the thing is going to take off), but it does work well!

  2. Cool. Don’t forget that frozen beverages — everything from slushy Cokes to, ahem, daquiris and margaritas — are superb when made in the counter-top ice cream freezer. 🙂

  3. Hmm, looks like it’s back up to $90. I was just going to chime in that this is a GREAT blender! I made baby food for my kids’ and went crazy trying to puree meat in our old blender. With this one it was so easy!

  4. Am I missing something? When I click the link, the blender is $90, not $55.

  5. Whoa, that sold out fast. Sorry, folks!

  6. yeah, back up to $90, but it’s still a steal. I’m getting one right now! 🙂

  7. Mir, I followed in your footsteps and got my Kitchenaid blender from the Kitchenaid outlet. It arrived a little over a week ago, and I loooooooove it. Seriously, I have to stop telling people about it. And maybe stop calling it “My precious” quite so loudly. Because I’m starting to get funny looks.
