Generations of families have relied on KitchenAid machines to give them a helping hand with their cooking. The new Artisan blender from KitchenAid is their most capable blender ever. The all new glass pitcher has a large pointed spout which does far more than simply pouring without mess. The wedge shape of the spout breaks up the vortex created by the rotating blade unit. This allows the ingredients to move around the jug more easily and come into greater contact with the blades. The result is faster and more even mixing and blending than ever before.
The solid die cast metal base houses a powerful 550 Watt motor with intelli-speed control. This system maintains the optimum speed for the task in hand without overloading the motor. There are five blending speeds and a special slow speed for crushing ice. Should you ever forget to put the lid on your blender each speed has a soft start feature which allows a few moments before the blender gets up to speed. This not only improves the quality of blending, it gives you a chance to stop the machine and put the lid on before the kitchen gets covered!
The lid sits securely on top of the pitcher and prevents any leakage during blending. A locking measuring cup fits into the lid and when removed allows the clean addition of ingredients even during blending.
The blending blades are positioned on four different planes for fast thorough performance. The blade assembly can be removed from the base of the pitcher with a simple twist for easy cleaning. The Artisan blender is supplied with a 0.75 litre culinary jar made from strong Duraclear polycarbonate plastic. Attach the blade assembly from the Artisan blender to the culinary jar and you have a mini blender better suited to small chopping and grinding tasks for which the main pitcher is too large. Both the culinary jar and the main pitcher are dishwasher safe, however the blade assembly should be washed and dried by hand.
The base of the Artisan blender has a wipe clean touch pad control panel with five blending speeds plus pulse and ice crushing setting.
For gentle mixing and stirring of liquid ingredients without blending or reducing the size of any solids such as a salad dressing or vinaigrette.
Use this setting for roughly chopping raw vegetables like onions, chillies, carrots or leeks for stews and pies fillings.
This speed is ideal for mixing, whisking and combining batters for sponge cakes where the medium speed prevents overworking the mixture. For pancake or Yorkshire pudding the blender ensures a smooth even mix without lumps.
