Cuisinart SB-5600 Blender - Where can I find a replacement jar?

  • 9

Hi, I have a Cuisinart SB-5600 blender. We have had a tumultuous relationship. While it has the power to do several smoothies a day and a 60 oz glass blender jar, in our early years together, it tended to overheat, and I had to ship it back to the manufacturer three times during the three year warranty. The thing is, the last time they sent a blender back to me, they sent me a really good one. It doesn't overheat, the buttons don't stick. Everything was perfect until my Mom broke the blender jar.

I guess rather reasonably, after 5 or 6 years of fulfilling warranties like mine, Cuisinart decided to discontinue the model and it turns out they don't even make the jar any more. The jar was really the best part. I have scoured the Internet and NOBODY seems to have it. I thought maybe some savvy culinarian out there might know of a source, or of a comparably sized glass jar that fits this unit. Krups, for example, makes a 60 oz jar that looks very similar, but I can't find one in my state to measure it in person, and their call center people don't know the base size.

Any ideas? I've spent about $50 in shipping fees over and above what I paid for the blender, and the motor works so well now, that I hate to give up on it.

Thanks for reading,
Ninrn, New Mexico

  1. Here you go. I went to cuisinart's site and the model number is SB-JAR. They were out, but the site below has it. I would buy a few jars if I were you.

    Jar is $22.95 and free shipping on orders over $65. Since you love the item so much and your machine is accident-prone, buy 3.

      Yes, I saw that, but it's the 40 oz jar, not the 60 oz one that goes with my blender. It would probably fit, but I really need that 60 oz capacity. Thanks so much for taking the time to do a search, though, Nikkib99. Very nice of you.

        1. re: nikkib99

          Yep, tried them. I actually ordered two last week, and then they cancelled my order because they don't have them any more. They said they must have just run out minutes before I made the purchase because the website is updated every 12 hours, but the item is still listed there a week later. I just called them again, in case they really do have them and had cancelled my order in error, but they said they don't and never will. I think my best bet is going to be to find another brand that has a large jar that fits this blender (or to find a sb-jar on eBay, but there aren't any there now). Thanks again for the effort, Nikkib99.

            You're welcome.

            If you're looking for a new blender, my kitchenaid blender is the KSB58ONKO and I love it because it has the power to pulverize ice cubes to snow. This has the capacity you need and is built to last. I don't use it that often, but have been very impressed when it was used.

            Hope you find what you need.

            BTW, I'm a member of rue la la and they're currently having a private sale on kitchen appliances for 1 more day. As far as blenders, they have kalorik and cuisinart. The cuisinart is Cuisinart "PowerEdge" 56oz Blender for $80. If you need an invitation, let me know.

    2. Not sure if this is your blender, but this link may help:

        That's her blender. Too bad she only needs the jug.

        This is what pisses me off about appliances - they encourage a throw-away mentality. That's why I have 2 kitchenaid blenders because I got so frustrated looking for just a small component of the original.

        1. re: nikkib99

          Well, one can always sell the base, or keep it as a spare.

      2. Problem solved. One finally came up on eBay and I got it. Thanks for your suggestions, Ninrn
