Blenders for
a delicious day

A blender is ideal for making a nutritious breakfast smoothie before you rush out of the door in the morning. But there’s so much more you can do too.

From breakfast to bedtime

You can use your blender to make a host of creations throughout the day, from fluffy pancakes and smoothies to soups, salsas, baby food and nut butters.

Simple to professional

From simple blenders to advanced and professional models with up to 11 speeds and a hot soup setting, there's a KitchenAid blender calling your name.

Match your personal style

They not only save you time and effort, but look super stylish too. What about Empire Red or Velvet Blue for the wow factor? Check out the options and choose one that makes you smile.

Which blender is the best to buy?

If you're wondering how on earth to choose, there are a few things to consider. Here's a checklist:

Will you stick to smoothies?

You can select a basic model or be more adventurous with an advanced and powerful model.

How often will you use it?

Our blenders can be used throughout the day, but choose the professional model for heavy use

Do you love soups?

Does style matter?

You may have a favourite colour or like a certain look, so enjoy browsing the options

How many people?

Look at pitcher size: from 1.5L up to 1.75L. The larger jugs can cater for family and friends

Your quick route to a healthy diet

You don't have to compromise on taste or nutrition with a great blender in your life. Quickly blend seeds, vegetables, dried and frozen fruits. Throw in plant powders, nuts and whatever leaves or ripe vegetables you have left in the fridge. Boost the taste with spices, ginger, honey or perhaps vanilla. You'll find you're wasting less food and increasing the amount of colourful fruit and veg in your life. That's a win-win situation.

What’s the best baby food blender?

Babies deserve the purest and most nutritious food when they begin their weaning journey from milk to a complete diet.
There’s no better way than to make your little one’s baby food in a blender.

Any KitchenAid blender in the range will create delicious, high quality purées in a flash. The best thing about making homemade baby food is that you know exactly what’s inside! You control the taste and texture and make it just the way your cutie likes it - silky smooth or with some soft lumps to chew on.

Tips for making baby food in the blender

  • Choose organic ingredients if possible to avoid pesticides and chemicals
  • Try puréeing peas, banana, avocado, sweet potato, pumpkin, butternut squash
  • Create interesting sensations with veg-and-fruit mixtures like potato and apple
