Product information

Arriving with a glass pitcher, the new KitchenAid Artisan blender brings a touch of class to your blending needs!

A die-cast metal base provides a robust foundation that is built to last. Thanks to a uniquely designed jug made using durable glass, this large 1.5L pitcher makes for easy pouring and cleaning. The jug has a well-sealed stay-put lid along with an ingredient cup for practical use. Also included is a 0.75L culinary jar, for small capacity recipes and single servings.

Sharp stainless steel blades make light work of blending - there is even an ice crushing setting, ensuring ultimate ice crushing and fast, consistent blending. Meanwhile the powerful motor with intelli-speed control maintains the optimal speed with each setting, so you can blend everything from soft cooked vegetables for soup, to chunks of ice, and this motor will handle it with ease.

If you always forget to put the lid on the blender before whizzing your food, fear not! To avoid mess, this blender has a ‘Soft Start’ feature: this starts slowly and then quickly increases speed for clean blending. For even more reliable and safe use, a locking collar ensures that the blades don’t rotate until the pitcher is properly attached.

Integrated into the smooth, rounded design of this blender is a clean-touch control pad: those inevitable spillages are superbly easy to wipe clean.

Effortlessly incorporate this blender into every meal you have throughout the day:

    Breakfast
    Fancy a power breakfast of fresh fruit and yoghurt? You can even have this on the go, for a healthy and convenient start to your morning

    Elevenses
    After a morning run or workout, a refreshing, vitamin-packed smoothie can be whipped up in a flash: simply throw fruit and vegetables into this blender and let it create a wonderfully creamy smoothies

    A sweet afternoon treat really picks up flagging spirits: a delicious milkshake or fool is super-quick to whip up, and if you’re feeling a little more indulgent, this blender can even help you to make a cake

KitchenAid Artisan Blender 4 5 9 9
Excellent aid in the Kitchen. Really pleased with my purchase. Excellent build quality, with both glass and plastic pitchers. Used mostly for making shakes at the moment but cocktails in the summer! No regrets. 28 January 2014
Absolutely Love It I already have the Artisan Mixer so was tempted by this. It is fantastic Being heavier than other blenders it lives on the work top but that is ideal because I use it so much more than I would having to lift it in and out of a cupboard. Smoothies are amazing, homemade soups are a dream because it is bigger than my previous Food Processor I can blend the whole soup in one go saving time and energy. I grated cheese for a Potato Dauphinois and it was brilliant. The quality is so good and having the extra jar is great if you just want to blend a small amount eg baby food. It is worth the extra money it costs over other similar blenders and is so easy to use and keep clean. I can't praise it highly enough 14 January 2014
Massively disappointing My husband purchased the cream blender as part of my Christmas present, as I had wanted one for a while. So you can imagine how disappointed we both were when we used it on Boxing Day to find it leaked everywhere. We re-followed the instructions and changed the seal etc, only to find it leaked again, this time causing a huge mess. On looking at reviews elsewhere on the internet, it became clear that this is a reoccurring problem with this blender. Thankfully as the customer service at John Lewis is exceptional, we have just returned this blender and brought a replacement - Kenwood. 04 January 2014
It's pretty, but badly designed I bought this to go with my kitchen aid stand mixer and kettle. I've been so disappointed as every time I try and use it the powerful motor blasts the lid off. I have lean across it with an oven glove on to keep the lid secure. Such a shame as it's so pretty, but I think I'll have to change it. 15 December 2013
Quick to use! I have a food processor with a blender attached,but to use it i have to assemble it all the time. Bought this one because there is no messing about with assembling. Put everything into the top and hey its done!!!! 30 October 2013
Good but could be better I have had this blender for afew months, the style of it is excellent, and it's that heavy there's no chance it will jump around your work space when blending, how ever I do not find it very good at blending soup, the motor it that strong , even on a low setting and little soup in the blender it will splat everywhere, so I tend to use a stick blender now, as this blender is just to powerful for soup. The blender easily crushes through ice, and that's why I have scored it so high, my old blender simply didn't do the job. It's also good at making sauces, and the looks lovely on your work surface! 02 July 2013
Great results but.. Everything is great about this blender...except for disengaging the pitchers from their base. You need the strength of Jobe. 30 May 2013
Love it! Really good quality, easy to use & clean. Fabulous! 01 August 2012
