Have a Kitchen Aid mixer but have never had a Kitchen Aid blender - glad I took a chance on it because it's a great blender. It blends quickly and smoothly and isn't too noisy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Does the job very well, but very noisy. Maybe because it is refurbished? By speed 2 it starts already making a tremendous amount of noise, and speed 3 starts to rattle. Will never buy a refurbished product anymore, because this might be the reason for the excess of noise and rattling.
