Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Theaterman A Good Value for the Casual Kitchen
The competition is fierce for this latest must-have class of product. Immersion blenders attempt to give you the best of two worlds in a handheld package, and KitchenAid - to be expected - delivers a thoughtful product at a fair price. Their offering gives the impression of solid construction, good weight (too heavy for some people but it gives you a confident feel), easy cleaning, good safety features, and good looks - even if it does live in a drawer much of the time. They essentially put a Blender's blade construction in a convenient stick form, but sharpened the blades (be careful!!) to mimic a food processor. It cannot match either appliance but does the job for small batches or difficult locations. Despite photos, the stove is not the place to use this - the electric cord can catch on pan handles or touch hot burner plates. A counter near the stove is ideal; keep a heat proof tile handy to place hot pans on. KitchenAid makes a heavier model also, but at that point you probably should be using a counter appliance. Usage hint: If the blade stick seems to wobble in use you do not have it "locked" on; twist harder when attaching. Storage hint: The pretty orange 2-inch cap from larger Tropicana jugs exactly fits the end of the blade holder, safely covering the sharp blades when in a drawer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kat Makes dips so easy!
Got this for a Christmas present from my mother in law. I love it, it blends great and also makes dips and whipped cream. I love that I don't have to get out my blender or stand mixer to make foods I love.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by homebake good hand blender
good pulsing action and blade blending, cutting of nuts and harder foods. Mixes the food well very tippy if left in the blending canister. like that the bottom part can be removed from the main handle.

Great kitchen helper to use for small chopping jobs. Easy to clean up versus using a food processor. Great purchase.

I got this as a wedding gift and love the ice blue color. I was disappointed to notice that the plastic begins to crack after a few times of use. I have always used a cuisinart version of this tool and never had that problem.

I've never had this type of blender before. Amazed at how quickly it blends and how easy it is to use and clean.
