Rated 5 out of 5Â by Juno Great Product!!
I bought this a couple of months ago and I love it! KitchenAid makes products you can trust and this is no exception. I just wanted a blender without having to store another appliance. This is an great option and is much more than a hand blender. The vegetable chopping feature is an added bonus as well as the whisk attachment. The extra blades make this very versatile and it all comes with a handy, easy to store case. What a great buy! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Saran Difficult to keep clean
I've owned this blender for over 2 years and use it virtually every morning to make my protein drink. I also use it for general cooking, etc., maybe once a week. Although I thoroughly rinse the blade section daily and wipe dry, it has begun to have a really rank odor. I discovered that the blending arm is now sucking liquid up into it and it reaches the bottom of the motor body and collects there. Yuck. Not sure what to do, but I will contact Kitchen Aid about this issue. I'm not expecting much since the product is over 2 years old. Otherwise, it's been a decent hand blender. Very disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hypnotist Makes the smoothest soups!
I purchased this product primarily to create smoother pea and bean soups and it far exceeds my expectations. The reason for the Kitchen Aid was the fact that a longer wand was available. I make large amounts of soup and freeze what I don't immediately use and the longer wand lets me blend the soups in one batch. The unit works great and the storage case makes it easy to keep parts together (except for the optional longer wand). The plastic piece which keeps the blades from harming non-stick surfaces is great! I would certainly recommend this product to anyone needing and immersion blender.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by DAlv Product has great features and accessories
This was a Father's Day gift to my husband, the weekend chef! It was to replace another brand which had recently broken for which we discovered there was no option to purchase replacement parts. Two of the selling points for this product were that replacement parts are available and it's a Kitchenaid product. My husband is very pleased with its performance and the accessories.
