    I used it to make my own mayo. It works great. Tried it for a few other things like homemade peanut butter and it gets hot fast sometimes have to let it cool before continuing the process. Overall though I love it!!

    I got this for our kitchen to replace our 9spd KitchenAid immersion blender that we had given away, while still operating perfectly. I was concerned about the fewer speeds but I was pleasantly surprised that this has all of the power of the one it replaced and I really don't miss the in-between speeds. The versatility of different attachments also gives the potential to pare down the appliances in an already crowded kitchen cabinet. Blend, mix, chop, process, this does a lot. And I especially like the touch of the removable non-stick cookware guards on the bottoms of the blend blade housings. KitchenAid doesn't miss a detail.

    Don't bother

    As a chopper this is useless. Doesn't seem to have enough power to chop even medium size pieces. Blade appears to struggle to turn and motor slips.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My daughter has been wanting an immersion blender for a long time. It works much better than doing small hot batches in the blender or food processor. She's been using it for wonderful smooth soups and sauces. She really likes all of the attachments and appreciates that they came in a case to keep them in.

    This little product is very powerful and SO easy to use, but also stores away in the provided storage container so nicely! I find myself using this product more than my food processor, just because it's easier to access/clean.

    I was too tired to cook until I received package. I couldn't wait to try it out so I made mushroom ravioli-worked like a charm and love the attachments as well as the different blades and bowls. Would definitely recommend. Very solid.

    I was looking for a hand blender and purchased this one upon reading the reviews. This comes with a nice case to hold all the blades and the attachments. I like to be able to store my small appliances without taking up random space in my cabinet. It's a powerful unit and would recommend it in place of a standing blender. It does all the things that a regular blender does as well as crushing ice.
