KitchenAid Artisan Blender Onyx Black 5KSB5553BOB 1 "Don't buy it!" Jayne Knight 23 March 2017 I bought this blender to make smoothies and other recipes that call for a blender. I have found that any sticky or solid food items just get stuck under or above the blades. I have found that it has been utterly useless for almost anything I have tried. I would not recommend it at all, a total waste of money. A note from the team Thank you taking the time to discuss this with us today. We're sorry to hear it's not met your expectations and hope we can resolve this for you soon.
