    Okay but too difficult to remove blade attachment

    Posted
    Casli
    • My Best Buy® Member

    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 always done things by hand so you can imagine how easy, and fun this was to use! Made life way easier. I love it!! Glad I decided to buy this the same day I bought my LG WM3700 washing machine set. I couldn't be more happier! Quickly becoming a Best Buy fan! I The service, and products are.excellent so far, and I hope it always stays that way!!!

    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.

    My mom had one of these for years & I always wanted one for myself - now I have one. These are great little devices that are easier to use & to clean than a food processor or blender & does a lot of the jobs both of those do. I don't know why it took me so long to get one of my own...lol.

    Although it is WIRED, makes a big deal of change in your life. Mostly I use it to purée food for my daughter. Easily usable with hot food items. Comes with small cup, good for single serving Guacamole or salsa. Provides Two speed setting but doesn’t make much difference.

    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 love the new colors on electric Appliances so retro. This blender is well-made and works awesome. I made a dressing for a salad and it mixed everything so quickly. They had a sale I got a great price and a product I will be using all the time

    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!

    I saw my daughter-in-law use one of these while we were visiting recently. I didn't even know that they existed. So practical and easy to clean. I've used it for making mashed potatoes and guacamole. Only wish it was battery operated instead of plug-in.

    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 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 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.

    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?
