Rated 2 out of 5Â by Aghhh Awkward controls
I had to return this item. I found having to hold 2 buttons to keep the stick running was just to awkward and difficult for me. My hand is not as strong as it used to be. I also wondered if the metal head would perhaps cause scratches on the pots. I would think a scratch guard might be useful.

I was looking for a versatile unit. And I found it!! From mashed cauliflower to bullet proof coffee, this unit performs!

When using you have to hold down 2 buttons at 1 time and then release the lock/unlock button to continue. Will be returning button doesn't work!

Tried this new purchase on a batch of chunky soup and it pureed the vegetables in short order. Asparagus was nicely liquefied with no stringy remains. I love that it separates into two pieces for easy cleaning. I'm not thrilled with the fact that you have to keep the buttons depressed for continued operation. The high and low speed buttons are stiff and uncomfortable to hold down. This may be by design, though as the instructions say to run for no more than 50 seconds at a time. It feels very sturdy, hope it lasts!
