What is the difference between the KSB4026 K400 colour of the year blender and KSB4027 K400 blender?
Both blenders have the same die-cast metal base, with 1.5 peak HP motor, 5 variable speeds + Pulse and 3 preset recipe programs. The difference is in the accessories. The KSB4027 blender has a 1.7L ribbed plastic jug and includes a tamper and is available in a range of colours. The KSB4026 has a 1.4L glass jug and does not include a tamper and is only available in the specific COTY colours.

What is a tamper used for?
A tamper goes through the lid of the blender to help mix tough or thick ingredients. There are instances where an air pocket is formed over the blade, causing the ingredients to get stuck. The tamper allows it to quickly intervene and push ingredients into the blending vortex, allowing the blend to continue to optimal consistency. Large quantities, ultra-thick blends without liquid such as nut butter, hummus and sorbet, may require more tamper interaction.
Is it important how I add my ingredients into the blender jug?
Is it possible to use a blender to make nut butter?
Yes, we recommend using the KSB4027 blender with tamper for making nut butters.
Add your choice of nut to the blender using no less than 3 cups of nuts, to cover the blades. Secure the lid and remove the center cap, and insert the tamper. Using a high speed, blend for 30 to 60 seconds, using the tamper to guide the nuts into the blades, until the desired consistency is reached.
