    Okay but too difficult to remove blade attachment

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I've used immersion blenders for a good 10 years, and very frequently. It's one of my most used kitchen tools. My last one was a Cuisinart that eventually died (actually it's alive but makes a loud noise now). This is very attractive, but there are 3 things I don't like about it. The body is a bit too long for easy use, it's not as powerful and seems to add too much air, but the deal breaker is how difficult it is to remove the blade attachment from the body! If you are used to whipping your blender out frequently, using and giving a quick rinse, this thing will slow you down and frustrate you. I almost couldn't take it apart, and I don't want to wash the entire thing. My Cuisinart had a quick-click removal button, and I just assumed this one would to. If you have arthritis and any gripping issues, don't get this blender! I will likely return it and find one that meets my needs, despite its beauty.

    I have been using this a lot this winter (soup season)! It is so hard to put soup into a blender, with this immersion blender you can just blend right in the pot. My most recent soup I wanted just some of it blended, so I used the container that came with it to blend the veggies and broth (there were a few potatoes) and then added that blended mixture back to the pot of broth and veggies as a little "thickener" and was still able to have a great veggie soup without cream or flour. You will find a million uses for this tool. It untwists to break apart for really simple cleaning. A true gem!

    After hearing that my wife needs a hand blender, I read lot of review from different hand blender users online. I realized that kitchenAid is one of the best brand. At that time I had a gift card in my best buy card. By using that card I bought this one. It has a sale price in that time. I saved money & got a very good quality hand blender. Very easy to use. Using this one my wife is very happy. For the price & purpose it's a good hand blender indeed.

    This unit is everything I want from Kitchenaid - good quality and reasonable price. The design is sturdy and I like that the blender part comes off to protect the motor. It's powerful. The power button takes more effort to control than I might like, making it a little awkward to keep on while working over a hot pot. I chalk some of that up to my failing fingers with age, though.

    Great little device my wife really likes it because it matches her stand up mixer and we have it sitting right next to it. She also says she likes the 8 inch shaft and she has given it a pet name name . If any complaints at all she wishes the cord was longer or was better yet cordless so she could take it in the shower. Best of luck to everyone with this device. Its addictive!

    I got this primarily for blending drinks, especially bulletproof coffee. It’s so perfect for that job I bought a second one to keep at the office. I tried some less expensive options and found them more trouble than they were worth. The Kitchenaid hand mixer is sturdy, easy to clean, and reasonably priced. It’s definitely worth considering if you need or want a hand mixer.

    Very nice. The 3 cup measuring cup with lid that come with the hand blender is great for measuring out protein drinks. The electical cord on the blender allows ample lenght to reach your blending area. Clean-up is breeze because the blender is dishwasher safe. The hand blender is great for those small blending needs when you don't want to use your full size blender.

    Plenty of torque and speed for our first stick blender. I would have preferred more (or variable) speed settings, but this was the only model in the store. It was a last-minute purchase. The lower half with the blade attaches easily to the motor body. I would appreciate a tighter detent, as the 2 halves have separated a few times during use. Still, we use it regularly to make banana pancakes.

    I've had this item for at least several weeks now and am pleased with my purchase. Mixer is a great shade of red, and has been really great to use for mixing. Parts are easily detachable and quick to clean, though extra care needs to be taken when cleaning the blade itself. It is very sharp. Great buy!

    This little gadget is powerful and easy to use. Makes mashed potatoes real quick. Does a bunch of other chopping stuff too. Only small quirk is cleaning it takes some finesse and directed water into the cutting blades (but it is dishwasher safe too).

    Solid mixer for the price. Feels heavy and durable in the hand. I used this to make fresh salsa and was able to quickly and easily pulp fresh garlic, onion and canned tomatoes into a smooth salsa. The mixing attachment easily twists from the motor component for easy cleaning.

    I like this a lot, it's easy to use and CLEAN! The only gripe I have is when I am making a particularly thick soup and turning the unit, 1-2 times it became unclicked and I had to reconnect it. Otherwise, great for my soups and quick mixing! I also gifted one of these.

    I used to make my pureed soups in a blender, but that was always a hassle (move the cooked food to blender...blend....pour into another bowl....) but now I can just puree them in the pan they were cooked in. Less mess! And FAST! Has two speeds. Makes great homemade mayonnaise, too! Washes up easily, too!

    I love this hand blender. I use it to make sauces and other fillings directly in the recipient that I am going to store them. It blends everything with ease and design prevents it from spreading things out of the recipient so no closing of the recipient needed.

    I needed a new hand held mixer after my other one broke. Walked into Best Buy to buy ink and found this one and decided to give it a try. So far so good. It's easy to use and is more powerful than my old one. Love that it has the attached cup for small mixes.

    Gift for kitchen gadgets in red. Easy to use when working with food in pots that need to mix and mash up, such as sauces, and soups. Draw back is that it is not one piece, may have accident that it will not stay together, the removable shaft is not a convenience. Recommended with reservation?

    This is a great product when you want to make one serving size and don’t want to pull out the blender and deal with all that. This works well and is very good quality. We make shakes, smoothies, roux’s, and soup bases. Very convenient!

    Two minor complaints. The recessed power button is a little difficult to operate. Touchy, you have to press it just right. The plastic connector seems flimsy. Connects mixing shaft to motor. Hasn't broken but it is definitely a weak spot.
