Women’s time in kitchen will be miserable with the all mighty blenders. Krups have managed to manufacture some of the top quality and best selling blenders in the market and in the following review, we will review their KB720744 Jug Blender.
Krups KB720744 Blender has a very modern design with a stainless steel and black colour finishing. It will be an instant hit if you have a stainless steel theme in your kitchen.
The controls have been neatly arranged and positioned in a way that they can be accessed with a great deal of ease. The control panel includes stop button, speed buttons, Ice crush function and vari-pulse function. It’s simple to switch on and off, and choosing the right speed is a doddle because the buttons are clearly labelled and very well laid out.The illuminated ergonomic control panel enhances visibility.
Jar and the Lid:
With a capacity of 1.75 litres the jar gives you a great deal of flexibility in your preparations. The Borosilicate glass blender jug is extremely heat resistant, which aids you with the hot mixes. And in addition to this, the extra thick glass is thermal shock and scratch resistant; hence, allowing you to prepare a variety of ice-based preparations in complete safety. The jar cap is easily removable with measure marks of 1and 2oz. The waterproof locking lid fits smoothly that locks securely and it just aids with clean preparation. Cord storage is also available and so, it stores away neatly inside the base when you want to put it away.
Durability and Safety:
The heavy duty die cast metal base offers stability and durability. In addition to this, the oversized collar offers more stability and helps safe handling.
Operation and Speed:
While operating the Krups KB720744 Jug Blender, start at slow speed and then gradually increase it to the most suitable speed for your preparation and the button for the selected speed lights up. Krups 1100 Watts Motor Technik electronic motor control system allows a steady and efficient motor speed irrespective of the load in blender jug.
Speeds and Functions:
There are more than five speeds offered and there is also automatic pulsing for even results. The blender offers two additional functions: Vari-pulse and Ice Crush. The Vari-Pulse function gives the user finer control over the degree of blending for precise, efficient preparations. And the Ice Crush function operates the motor intermittently for the preparation of crushed ice, smoothies or granitas.
Coming to the part of performance, blending is just excellent with five speed levels, pulse and ice settings to choose from. Krups KB720744 5-speed Blender just eases through everything from the tricky mayonnaise to baby food. The Ice Crush function is a bit slow taking a long three minutes to prepare a smoothie. But, for most of the other tasks, KB720744 is pretty fast. Since the blender accelerates gently rather than suddenly blasting the contents, which always makes less mess of the lid and results in much more fluffier smoothies.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
The detachable blades make thorough cleaning a breeze. All parts of the blender except for the motor are dishwasher safe.
Krups offers its KB720744 Jug Blender one year standard warranty and includes a generous 5 year warranty on the motor.
Though the Krups KB720744 Jug Blender is a bit pricey, it is certainly one of the best buys. Its ease of use and impeccable performance is just too hard to miss. Across the board, the results are nothing less than excellent. It has one of the biggest jug capacity of 1.7 litres and it also benefits from one of the most powerful motors in the market. While the list of pros is long with excellence in blending, ease of use, ice crushing function, cable storage, dishwasher safe and quiet; the cons are just the price and slow ice crushing. While slow ice crushing cannot be a deal breaker, the price can be. So, it all comes down to your budget, if you have it, then just go for it without second thoughts.
