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.

amazing blending results

Submitted by R2D4 - 11/27/2019

We were looking for a new blender as we make smoothies daily and our old blender wasn't working very well. Somebody suggested this blender and we are thrilled with the results! Everything is blended down so smoothly (MY hubby puts fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds in his smoothies) and there is no grittiness in the smoothie. I made broccoli soup and got a silky smooth consistent in that too.

Loud screech noise on first use

Submitted by Bmac9719 - 11/25/2019

I was so excited to receive this blender after reading all of the positive reviews, especially those regarding smoothie making. The first morning that I attempted to use the brand new blender to make our smoothies, the blender began making a horrible screeching noise as if the blade was not aligned even though it sat perfectly evenly in the base. It was unable to blend the smoothie, leaving even a fresh soft banana in tact. Trying next with just water as a test, the screeching noise continued. I guess we'll have to return it. Very disappointing considering the $250 we paid for it.

A beast in the kitchen

Submitted by Dave M5 - 11/19/2019

This blender is an absolute beast in my kitchen. Frozen fruit, yep. Ice cubes, yep, so far you name it. Puree soup, milk shakes, frozen drinks, done. Additionally it is easy to clean and looks great on the counter.

Super powerful and quiet blender!

Submitted by tiffanyb91 - 11/11/2019

I love my K400 Kitchen Aid Blender! It is super easy to use and clean. The blender doesn't take up much room at all. The black color really gives it a simple yet sleek look to it. It blends really well. It's super powerful. I like the three preset recipe settings for Ice Crush, Icy Drinks and Smoothie so I don't have to guess at how well to blend my smoothies. I can adjust the speed to my preference of taste and texture with the 5-speed dial. The blender itself is sturdy. The motor is powerful with a 1.5 peak HP motor. Plus, the blades are sharp and durable to blend up any hard ingredients. I was very surprised at how quiet this blender actually is. I'm able to have a conversation while blending. I love how fast the blender actually crushes, blends and smooths my ingredients. I love the size of the large pitcher. This blender also has accessories that are sold separately to make this blender more versatile in the kitchen. I will definitely be purchasing in the future. I'm super happy with this product. Definitely recommend!

Quiet, Powerful and heavy duty Blender

Submitted by Bxfive - 11/9/2019

At first glance this blender did not look like it would be powerful. However, after the first use I had a much different opinion! The blender has 8 speeds and a pulse option. You turn the dial to the intensity and push the blend button. Even at the lowest speed it is able to power through ice and frozen ingredients like it was nothing. The pitcher is made of very heavy duty plastic and feels like it would with hold anything. I have put the top and bottom through the dishwasher and no issues there either! What suprised me most is how quiet the blender was. Even at its highest speed I was still able to hear and speak to others in the room without interruptiion.

Very well made blender, stylish and sleek

Submitted by dm801 - 11/8/2019

This blender is definitely a top of the line appliance and also looks great. I had no problems with pureeing and blending, including making smoothies and mashed potatoes. The one area where the blender struggled was crushing ice cubes. This is not a typical task, but I just wanted to make smaller cubes but they kept escaping the blades, even on the ice cube setting. Other than that, I highly recommend this model.

amazingly powerful!

Submitted by Clb73 - 11/8/2019

This is by far the best and most powerful blender I have ever had. I was really amazed how quickly it can crush, blend, and smooth! Since I use this almost daily, I keep this right on my countertop. It has a nice simple but sleek look to it. It's not bulky and I like that I don't have to fumble with all sorts of blades and attachments. All in all great blender to have for all uses.

Great for morning smoothies

Submitted by plang0719 - 11/7/2019

This blender is great at handling my daily smoothies. It works just as well as a Vitamix, in my opinion, but with a much lower price point. I like the various speeds and the ability to "chop" frozen fruit a bit before blending. This is certainly not your typical $70 Oster blender. This one is powerful and blends very smoothly.

I didn't know my life needed this blender.

Submitted by SantaPoco - 11/7/2019

Full disclosure; I have yet to make a healthy smoothie, meal replacement, or blended ingredients for a fresh salsa with this blender. I've made margaritas with it. I've made more frozen margaritas with it in the past week than I have in the past few years with my old blender. It's pretty cool. The multiple power setting are nice, but the preset tings for different types of drinks are what have won me over. The blender seems to know how fast or slow to turn in order to get a solid frozen consistency. It's a heavy duty well made product that I'm super happy to have added to our home kitchen. You should be warned that heavy duty especially applies to the weight of the base. This isn't light weight, but I think that's a good thing. It's easy to use, and looks good. It's functional in purpose and design. I love the idea that this blender can also replace my food processor and smaller single serving blender by purchasing some accessories. I don't have any of those yet, but I'll be in the market to streamline our kitchen using this one product. This blender has the potential to help us clean out some drawers filled with other devices. It's as if the approach to this device is similar in the way the company handles their mixer. With the right adaptors it can be a lot more than a blender.

Amazing

Submitted by Salukipower - 11/7/2019

I used this tonight to make frozen banana peanut butter and chocolate ice cream. I love all the different setting it has. It worked better than I expected. It's heavy so it won't move while you're using it. I do wish the container was glass but it's pretty heavy duty plastic. I've had blenders burn out quickly. I honestly don't think this one will do that at all. This will be in my kitchen for years. It's also nice enough looking you can leave it on the counter instead of hiding it away.

Works perfect for smoothies and more

Submitted by Bobcam7 - 11/6/2019

This blender is wonderful. It looks modern and attractive which is great so I can leave it on my counter in between uses. It has a simple dial system that allows me to pick just the right setting to get the consistency that I want. I make smoothies regularly and I love that this blender actually makes it smooth with no chunks. It works very fast as well. I am also happy with the fact that it is very easy to clean. This is a high quality product that makes my life easier. It is not very loud either. The size is great because I can choose to make a small amount or larger if I am making something for my wife too. I am very happy with this blender!

Greatest blender I've ever used!!

Submitted by CR41 - 11/5/2019

Hands down the best blender I've ever used. It's essentially a commercial grade blender. Several different blending options depending on what your objective is. I personally make a lot of smoothies with plenty of frozen fruits and ice. This blender handles the heavy workload with a breeze. It's a perfect smoothie within seconds. No chunks at all as it's perfectly blended every time. Cleanup is simple as I just pop the pitcher and lid in the dishwasher and it fits right in. Base is a little heavy, but is to be expected when you get a blender that's commercial grade. Highly recommend for anyone who is a regular smoothie drinker or just having issues with their run of the mill blenders... the K400 will change your life!

Awesome Blender!

Submitted by Indygirl - 11/4/2019

Originally I was worried this blender wouldn't live up to my expectations. I previously had a Vitamix - I was wrong! This blender does what my Vitamix did and is a fraction of the cost! It's sleek, modern design is a pleasure to look at on the countertop as well! KitchenAid is slowly taking over my kitchen and I couldn't be more pleased with that decision!

Finally a safe blender

Submitted by OrlandoMama - 11/4/2019

I recently was 2nd degree burnt when a quick mini shake blender blew up and splattered hot liquid all over my kitchen and face. I need a safe and powerful replacement. The K400 Blender by kitchen Aid is heaven. I can not even believe I survived this long without a proper blender. The boxing and packaging was very protected and very little environmental paper and plastic waste. It was easy to set up and a quick read for the manual before I could get started. The blender is very simple and not over complicated by computers. A simple dial with easy to switch adjustment levels. The Blender was easy to clean. Very powerful. I highly recommend the Kitchen Aid K400. I am so happy with my blender!

Amazing Kitchen Aid K400 Blender!

Submitted by recentyear12 - 11/4/2019

I love using the amazing Kitchen Aid K400 Blender as it blends me the tastiest and the smoothest smoothies ever. I love drinking smoothies daily to keep my self healthy and this sturdy die cast metal base and unique asymmetric blade that blends at four distinct angles to pull contents into the blade and through the toughest of ingredients, is the perfect blender for every occasion. This amazing blender comes with 3 preset recipe programs: ice crush, icy drinks & smoothie and 5-speed variable speed dial, and it crushes ice without any trouble at all making my smoothies as tastier as ever. Also this blender starts with a slower speed and quickly increases tot he selected speed to a avoid any splutter since it has the Soft Start feature, which is one of my favorite features this blender possess. After I started using this blender my days are filled with food adventure, and I try to create amazing and tasty smoothies daily. I have also hosted a smoothie Party and have invited my friends, neighbors and family to show off my blender, how cool it works as well as giving each one of my guests new and innovative smoothies to drink. I feel myself like a smoothie connoisseur now. I have also recommended this amazing Kitchen Aid K400 Blender to several of my friends and family who love to stay healthy and loves to drink smoothies. Some of them purchased this blender already and just love the way it works making them newer and tastier smoothies, the way they want them, daily.

Powerful and Quiet!

Submitted by Matt10 - 11/4/2019

I guess I never realized how loud most blenders are until I noticed the difference of when this one runs. It is so quiet. The great thing is that it is also very powerful. It has a couple of pre-programmed settings and then there is the option where you can choose the speed you want as well. It seems to handle tough ingredients with ease and makes a great smoothie. Clean up is easy and it is not huge so storing it is easy too. Overall you cant ask for a better blender.

Beautiful Finish! Top Quality!

Submitted by blendernationatx - 11/4/2019

This blender is another gem by KitchenAid. What a beautiful stainless finish that matches perfectly with my other KitchenAid products. I could not be more pleased with the quality of this blender. The simplicity was concerning at first, but I have not had any issues attaining the desired blend. My biggest pain point with blenders is always the sound. Blenders are loud, which is unavoidable. That being said, this blender is not overwhelming. I was also pleased to make a smoothie without stopping to push down the fruits to ensure a full blend. Awesome!

This K400 Blender is powerful and quiet. It'll crush ice really quickly without waking up the house. That's a wonderful thing since I like to make my own frappuccinos in the morning. It fits in the space I have for it to fit in and it's great.

Zooom! This blender has some zip.

Submitted by jml2co - 11/3/2019

I have had an ancient cheapo blender for ages- prob bought in college to make margaritas. The thing could hardly blend up soup after all the ingredients were boiled. This KitchenAid model is a whole different ball game - super speedy, doesn't sound like its motor is about to fry, has lots of options for intensity and looks/feels high quality on my kitchen counter. Classy black model is awesome. Easy to clean. Two thumbs up.

Submitted by Nikkib313 - 11/2/2019

I try to make protein packed smoothies for my family every morning and this blender makes it enjoyable and I say! I have to say it's sleek design allows me to keep it on the counter. It's lightweight yet I like the fact that I can leave it out....I hate having to lug heavy appliances out to use! Impressed by the fact that there were no ice chunks. My smoothie was perfectly smooth!

Submitted by cowgirl78 - 10/31/2019

The KitchenAid K400 blender is a powerful appliance. It easily blends ice to make a smoothie or margarita. Spinach also blends nicely into my smoothie. It is very easy to operate and stays in place while blending. The blender looks very nice displayed on my countertop, which I am happy about since I use this often. It is relatively light considering how durable it is. Cleanup is easy too. I just add water and a few drops of dishsoap, turn on the machine and let it clean away. Rinse and drip dry. Easy!!! Highly recommend this blender!

Impressive best blender

Submitted by rachele412 - 10/28/2019

I am truly impressed with how well the KitchenAid K400 Blender works. The sleek and simple design makes it so easy to use. Plus its not embarrassing to leave on your counter when not in use. Very light weight to move around but is so durable! It has a soft start feature so everything gets mixed consistently. The smoothies I made are the best I ever had. So smooth it breaks down the ice perfectly no more large random chunks! This is by far the best blender I have used and after using it daily for weeks now I can't imagine not having this, I would be lost!

Awesome for Smoothies!

Submitted by KyleH - 10/26/2019

I love this blender! My main use is for making green smoothies and homemade nut butters. So, I want to make sure it's buttery smooth when blended. This definitely delivers. Has no issues finely blending nuts, hard fruits, and veggies. Makes them creamy and smooth in less than a minute. Compared to my Vitamix I find it takes a bit longer to make whole nuts blend smoothly. It still does but maybe 20 seconds longer. For the price cut compared to a vitamix definitely worth it though! Overall, I'm really happy with this blender and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high-performance blender that looks great and delivers a great value. Pros: - Square sturdy body! Looks stylish and makes it easy to pour. - Pretty quiet for a high powered blender - Design-wise, it looks amazing on my counters. It has a sleek design looks modern and clean. Cons: - I find it a bit cumbersome to clean the blade portion when I make homemade peanut butter or other harder to clean products. I wish the blades were able to separate more easily for cleaning. - Wish it was glass and not plastic.

Very Nice Blender

Submitted by Mysamplelife - 10/25/2019

I have nothing negative to say about this blender. The sleek look of it and the variety of colors they provide is awesome. instead of the multiple buttons usually on other blenders, this one has a dial wheel which controls the speed and selects the already preset setting of ice, drinks and smoothies. With that being said, it actually crushes ice and it is impressive. The base is heavy and slip resistant which is great. I have been using it to blend and make baby food actually and i am happy with the results as everything comes out of this blender smooth and without chunks. Super happy with this blender.

This is such a powerful blender! It's the best one I've ever owned. My kids and I have made delicious smoothies in just seconds, leaving no chunks behind.

Powerful blender

Submitted by Texxasgurl45 - 9/20/2019

Thus is a very impressive blender! Not only does it have good weight to it, but also looks very sleek and modern. It has 3 preset settings such as Ice Crush, Icy Drinks, and smoothies. It also has 5-speed variable speed. It really crushes through ice effortlessly and blends through food with ease. It has a simple knob to control it all. It's a great addition to my kitchen and looks great. It's actualy not as loud as my last blender. It also really makes sure all the ingredients are well blended, even small pieces. Everything comes out very smooth and it's very spacious.

Surpassed my expectations!

Submitted by Nicky24 - 9/11/2019

This blender has wowed me and secured a permanent place in my kitchen. I've used this more than any other small appliance I own. It is a wonderful, powerful blender that surpasses all others and the nice wide container is easy to empty and clean. Everything my food processor used to do, this blender does in half the time and with far better quality. This blender has handled fresh ginger, frozen fruit, raw beets, nuts and carrots like a breeze. Everything comes out smooth, no chunks or pieces. Just a beautiful smooth blend! I am 100% head over heals for this blender!

Best Blender

Submitted by BarbaraKB - 9/11/2019

This is the best blender I have ever owned. This k400 blender is so special because it does a lot of hard work. The ice blends and crushes so easily! It has 3 preset recipe programs that include ice crush, smoothies and Icy drinks! Slushes are great to make with it. I have blended raw veggies, cookies veggies and fruits. Everything always comes out so smooth and creamy. It even easily blends frozen fruits with ease!! It is easy to take apart and clean and easy to store.

My new go to for making Smoothies!

Submitted by Thump9 - 9/11/2019

I have finally found the perfect blender for smoothies. It does the perfect job of pulling down the ingredients to mix them together. The base is very heavy and well built. The pitcher is plastic but it seems to be sturdy so far. It is easy to clean up as well. I have also used it to make sauces and frozen margaritas and was very pleased with it. It is powerful without being too loud. I leave it out on my black granite countertop and the matte black of the blender looks very nice. I am thinking about getting a second one for our bar in the basement for drinks. The only thing I would change would be to have a glass pitcher.

Best blender I've ever used!

Submitted by Shopaholic - 9/10/2019

Absolutely amazed by this KitchenAid blender! It does an excellent job at blending and my family and I have enjoyed smoothies, milkshakes and slushies with this so far. It crushes ice with no problems at all and leaves no big chunks behind either. The base of the blender has a rubber bottom preventing it from slipping and sliding everywhere and the best part? It has a button to self clean itself! What an amazing feature! The pitcher is plastic (another great feature) so no worries about breakage. This blender is very easy to use, just set the dial to the desired setting and press power to start, press again to slow down or stop it. Extremely impressed with this blender and all of the features and the best I've ever used!

My new everyday blender

Submitted by Corporate - 9/9/2019

This is my new everyday blender. It is similar to other models but this one appears to produce a stronger blended smoothie and in general, it is just a sleeker machine than my previous blenders. The self-cleaning function is great though for heavier cleans, but I like that this is dish washer safe. I will be making many years worth of smoothies with this blender.

Submitted by Th33th33 - 9/8/2019

Kitchenaid never fails me. This blender is one of a kind. It does it all . You can get icy crushed juices , icy drinks or just regular drinks at a perfect texture with this blender. Very powerful and sturdy. I love the technique of the soft start it has and I can control what texture I want for my smoothies easily. Now I can make my favorite smoothies home and I don't have to buy it ready anymore. Best blender out there.

This is a GREAT, powerful blender!

Submitted by Klove9191 - 9/7/2019

Recently got this blender and I absolutely love it! The first thing I noticed was the power of this blender, it works very effectively and doesn't take much time at all, it blends perfect smoothies, and what I especially love about it is the fact it has 3 preset settings, like ice crush, icy drinks and a smoothie setting, that I found was super convenient, but it also has more speed settings for different ingredients you add! Another thing I found especially unique and great about this blender is the fact it's made with a soft start feature, meaning it starts the motor at a slower speed to pull food into the blade then quickly increases to the speed you choose to avoid splatter, that I found was very admirable! Overall I've had a great experience using this blender since owning it and I would highly recommend!

great blender

Submitted by nana1968 - 9/7/2019

This is a great blender. It has a very powerful motor. It blends very good and has several settings for different stuff. It crushed ice enough to make a snow cone . It is a very heavy blender but it's awesome. It can blend so many different things and it is very fast. I absolutely love this blender.

Compact, stylish, and packs a punch.

Submitted by Fatherof6 - 9/7/2019

I never realized you could fall in love with an appliance until I started using my kitchen k400. It crushes ice with amazing speed and its like a snow cone. All uniform and not liquefied. The funnel in the center shows off its amazing speed. My morning smoothies have never been so delicious, well mixed, and blended. Nothing is a match with this, everything blends well. It's compact and very stylish. I love how easy it it is to clean. Due to how easy it is to clean, it's used daily in my kitchen. I love the variety of colors you can purchase this in, but I did go with standard black. Nothing beats a classic, and this is a classic.

Best blender everSmoothies are

Submitted by CNCN - 9/7/2019

This is the best blender I have ever owned. In the past, blenders have not blended all that I have put in them leaving chunks when I wanted a smotth blend. This blender blends exactly how I want it to blend. Smoothies are PERFECT. Easy to use and easy to clean.

Every kitchen needs one!

Submitted by steph919 - 9/6/2019

My KitchenAid k400 blender is officially my favorite appliance in my kitchen. In fact, I think every kitchen needs one. Not only does it go with every kitchen decor, but it works wonders. My daughter and I love having fruit smoothies and it works perfect. Or for crushed ice, I even lover making my own salsa and Chile so it works out perfect. With other blenders I would always have trouble with the ice and even the long Chile not blending up right. Not with this blender, it works perfect. It is high quality and worth the value. My favorite feature you don't get in other blenders is the self cleaning setting. It definitely helps! It is truly very simple to use. I like to be able to get my daughter helping so she helps throw the ingredients in and help turn on to the the right setting for the smoothies. She says she loves making her own smoothies.

Powerful and High Quality!

Submitted by Pa174 - 9/6/2019

Love this blender. It makes smoothies better than any other blender I have every owned. It produces a quality smoothie comparable to those at Panera or any fast food restaurant. There's something unique about the design. It's pulverizing everything I need to make green smoothies and shakes to supplement my diet, and it does it a lot faster and better than any blender I've used in the past. Most importantly it is the EASIEST to clean and really gets the job done fast. That's important when you don't have much time! Attractive enough to leave out on counter and not unusually large. I use mine every day, at least once a day. Worth every penny.

Fantastic blender!

Submitted by DevonB - 9/5/2019

I love the soft start feature. I can't tell you how many times I have splattered food everywhere. Makes smoothies extremely easy and quick. The noise is about on par with other blenders, not that I was worried about that anyway. Super easy to use dial. Glad we went with this choice.

Powerful!

Submitted by thisgirl00 - 9/5/2019

This blender is a beast! I have owned many blenders but never used one that has the power this one has. I make a lot of smoothies from frozen fruit. Most blenders work ok but I usually have to stop it, open it, stir the chunks and continue blending. I usually have to do this a few times during the blending process. This one pulverizes the frozen fruit I use (usually bananas, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries) in under a minute. I never have to remove the top to stir. It comes out so smooth and no chunks are left. I really love the dial compared to buttons that are on most of them. It is so easy to use. Set the dial, hit the power button and let it do its thing. The Soft Start feature is genius. It keeps the splatters down that usually happen when using a blender. Cleaning the jar is effortless. This one has a self-clean mode which makes it incredibly quick to clean. A little soap and water, run on self-clean mode, rinse and done. I am so incredibly pleased with this blender. It is by far my favorite. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a great quality blender that can take on pretty much anything you put in it.

Bravo KitchenAid

Submitted by Queen55555 - 9/5/2019

KitchenAid did it again! This blender is such a great modern look into my kitchen but as always KitchenAid didn't just make it beautiful they made it durable and functional. This is so well crafted it will last forever. I'm not going to skip about the functionality because it gets the job done and with ease. I went straight for trying the tough stuff 1st. I began with a milkshake and frozen fruit and it blended it with ease so next I tried ice and frozen fruit and it again blended it with ease both drinks came out very smooth. Because of how tough this blender is I wasn't leery of putting frozen things into it.
