On July 25, 2019, the attorneys at Markovits, Stock & DeMarco, along with co-counsel, filed a class-action lawsuit against KitchenAid and its parent company Whirlpool based on these companies’ misleading horsepower representations relating to KitchenAid’s Pro Line Series and High Performance Series Blenders. In addition to nationwide warranty claims, the class action lawsuit alleges a series of state-based warranty, consumer protection, and unjust enrichment claims against KitchenAid and Whirlpool. Among the relief requested: that KitchenAid and Whirlpool be stopped from continuing to promote their products using false and misleading horsepower representations.

In 2016, the well-known kitchen appliance company KitchenAid launched its Pro Line Series blender, described by KitchenAid as “The Most Powerful Blender,” featuring a “3.5 Peak [horsepower] motor.” This was followed soon after by KitchenAid’s High Performance Blender, containing an advertised 3.0 peak horsepower motor. The only problem? Blender purchasers will never experience the 3.0 and 3.5 horsepower during ordinary household use and the Pro Line Series Blender is incapable of reaching 3.5 horsepower even in laboratory testing.
