We wanted to purchase the KitchenAid Torrent Blender the moment it came out on the market. We had to redo our kitchen first of course. And yes you guessed it – KitchenAid appliances. Stay tuned for upcoming blog posts on our kitchen renovation.

This week, we are off to purchase the blender.  Watch our social feeds for updates.


There are many great reasons for selecting the KitchenAid Torrent Blender. The KitchenAid Torrent blender has an all die cast metal body powered by a 1.8 Peak HP* motor that generates 18,000 RPM. Its innovative preset programs make it easy to create a recipe for any occasion.


The KitchenAid Torrent blender’s preset recipe programs make your favourite recipes a breeze. At the touch of a button, you can make smoothies, juices, soups, sauces, milkshakes, and more. All you had to do is choose a program, press start and walk away. The blender will stop on its own.

  • MILKSHAKES: Blends at a powerful low speed to create a smooth, uniform consistency when blending decadent milkshakes.
  • SOUPS / SAUCES: Enables blending of hot ingredients such as a homemade pasta sauce or tomato soup.
  • PULSE: Allows precision control of the duration and frequency of blending, and for customizing recipes, such as chunky soups and sauces.
  • ICY DRINKS / SMOOTHIES:  Crush large amounts of frozen food or ice with quick pulses of power into a delicious smoothie.
  • JUICE:  Provides the right high‑speed blending program to create the optimal texture for recipes high in fibre or seeds.
  • START / PAUSE:  Start and stop the blending process with one button

The Magnetic Drive system securely locks the pitcher in place during operation. Forty‑eight permanent magnets connect the pitcher to the base, transferring power from the motor into the pitcher. Unlike other blenders, the pitcher slides in and out like a coffee maker, so there’s no need to move it out from underneath kitchen cabinets, twist the pitcher into place, or hold down the lid during blending.

  • The 60‑ounce pitcher, lid, and ingredient cap are BPA free and 100% dishwasher safe.

The Diamond Blending System provides a powerful vortex for fast and thorough blending results, all at the push of a button.

  • The blade assembly is stainless steel and features a sharp one-piece design for strength and durability.
  • Blades are positioned on different planes for fast, thorough, consistent blending.
  • The blades blend even the toughest recipes with precision.

Intelli-Speed® technology automatically chooses the best possible blade speed, allowing you to puree vegetables, blend up extra‑thick milkshakes, crush ice cubes, and more. The built‑in sensor monitors the different blade speeds to detect ingredients and enables the blender to automatically adjust and maintain the selected speed of the preset recipe program.


The top cap allows you to easily measure and feed ingredients into the jar while you blend. You’re free to adjust texture or improvise a recipe on the fly. The diamond‑shaped jar creates a powerful blending vortex that moves ingredients to the blades, eliminating the need for a tamper.


Simply lift the dishwasher‑safe ingredient cap on the top to add ice, fresh fruit, and more while you blend. You can even use the measurement marks on the cap to be precise
