The KitchenAid 5KSB8270 Artisan Power Plus is a very powerful and multifunctional blender that is designed to assist in a wide range of common kitchen tasks. From grinding spices to blitzing smoothies or pureeing dips, it offers plenty of versatility and can easily process all manner of ingredients.
To achieve top-quality blended results, the Artisan Power Plus blender is equipped with a brilliant 3.5 horsepower motor. This allows it to exert an incredible amount of force, causing the blade to spin rapidly through even tough ingredients. As a result, it can output very quick and consistent results.
Additionally, to facilitate fine control over the bending process, KitchenAid has built an 11-speed control dial into the 5KSB8270. This allows the motor’s incredible power to be reigned in for gentler mixing tasks or unleashed in full for high paced blitzing and grinding.
Beyond sheer blending power, the 5KSB8270 also comes with four inbuilt pre-programmed blending cycles for:
These cycles make blending very accessible, even for complete beginners and cover a good range of common blending requirements.
Thanks to its well-designed interface and high power motor, the 5KSB8270 can produce a wide selection of end products. Its asymmetrical blade is optimised to work in many different scenarios and can be used for tasks ranging from grinding and crushing to whipping and pureeing.
Therefore, it can be used to grind nuts into a crumb, blitz vegetables into a delicious hot soup or puree fruits into a smooth and satisfying sauce.
Alongside its direct blending ability, the KitchenAid Artisan Power Plus blender is built to a great standard from a multitude of premium materials.
The 1.75-litre blending jug is made of hard-wearing BPA free plastic. This ensures it won’t leech chemicals when heated, yet its flexibility prevents it from cracking when subjected to vibrations from the high power motor. It also features a hardy stainless steel blade that is resistant to damage and wear.
Additionally, the base of the unit is firm, well-weighted and sturdy, which is mostly thanks to its die-cast metal casing that offers great durability and stability.
Last but not least, the 5KSB8270 sports a very clean and practical design. The interface is simple and intuitive, offering ample control without being over-cluttered, and the unit itself remains compact despite its powerful motor.
