The KitchenAid Artisan K400 blender strikes a perfect balance between performance and build quality. Through the combination of premium materials such as glass and die-cast metal it is highly durable. Yet it’s 1.5 peak horsepower motor allows it to still be highly effective when blending tough ingredients. As a result, it truly is a best of both worlds solution.
A good selection of pre-programmed blending cycles are a key part of any good blender, and the K400 doesn’t disappoint. Through an offering of 4 different cycles, it facilitates quick blending options for crushing ice or producing icy drinks or smoothies. Then it’s fourth mode is a self-cleaning cycle that helps to make even tidying up easy and quick.
One of the most impressive features of the KitchenAid Artisan K400 is its impeccable build quality. For starters, both its base and control dial are made of die-cast metal, making it very sturdy and hard wearing through many years of use. However, the K400 doesn’t stop there, and it also offers a very impressive 1.4L glass jug, for the best blending experience and durability.
Through the combination of 3 key design features, the KitchenAid K400 is able to produce brilliantly smooth and refined blends. The unique asymmetrical blade plays a big role in this, as it’s shape allows for optimal blending vortex’s, ensuring all ingredients are blended to an equal consistency.
Working alongside the asymmetrical blade, the ribbed glass jar helps to fold ingredients back into the blade. Finally, the Intelli-Speed motor is able to sense the contents of the blending jug and outputs an optimal power and speed level to blend them optimally.
On top of its impeccable build quality and performance capabilities, the Artisan K400 has been designed to fit in, and it is available in a wide array of colours. This makes it easy to style with any kitchen space and it can easily be matched with other KitchenAid appliances.
I got this to replace my Nutribullet which had packed up. Its more expensive but you certainly get what you pay for. It was an excellent choice and I'm please I made the change. Great service from Juicers.co.uk too!
If you are looking for The Daddy of all blenders then this could well be it!! Recently received ours and love it. It has a very powerful motor!! I was looking for a well built blender that would last. I favoured this make and model as it had good reviews and where many manufacturers have opted to provide the jug and housing in plastic, this one is made of heavy duty glass and die-cast metal. The only other manufacturer that I was aware of who did this and, had a great reputation was Warings but they appear to have fallen off the map. In any case, the KitchenAid model is so easy to use AND clean! It’s been a great addition to my home bar and I am sure will last years. Love the 5 year warranty for peace of mind too!
