    Okay but too difficult to remove blade attachment

    Posted

    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's 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.

    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.

    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).

    Since the blender comes in 2 parts it takes up less room in the cabinet. It is easy to use. It is powerful and makes blending easy. I love the fact that it is much easier to clean than my old one. I'm glad I chose this one.

    Bought it for my wife so she'dnt have to wash the whole blender whenever she'd make shakes and smoothies, overall a great tool, powerful motor. Feels very solid and durable! Worth it.

    In most cases, for a quick mix, this is a great item. You can blend soft items with ease, but ice will get a little challenging. This will not make a perfectly blended margarita, but will give you a nice tomato sauce.

    We've always used our Oster for all our mixing needs but end up hurting our hands cleaning it. Love the hand mixer because of its versatility, ease of use, and clean up is very easy as well!

    This hand blender is being used for soap making process and is doing the mixing of heavy materials very well. The strong motor is holding up well, and the cleanup is very easy. .

    Comes apart with just a twist for easy cleaning. Have owned several other cheaper ones and this one feels like it will last forever.

    The blender is powerful, fast, easy to use and works very well. The only negative thing I could say is that it can get heavy to hold after a while.

    This really is much more convenient than a large full size blender. Strong motor quickly mixes/blends products with ease.
