Variable Speed Control dial on top of Blender

From the Manufacturer

Simple and yet powerful, this premium immersion blender will deliver professional results for any kitchen.

Features:

  • Powerful motor: The sturdy motor provides powerful blending action. Designed for quiet, long-life operation.
  • Variable speeds: the speed control dial on top of the immersion blender offers speeds ranging from nine (high) to one (low) that enable the immersion blender to whip creams and egg whites, to chop foods, and to process a wide variety of liquids as well.
  • One-touch power: Press and hold the power button on the front of the immersion blender to operate. Simply release pressure on the power button to stop blending.
  • Comfort grip: body of the immersion blender houses the motor and is designed for a comfortable, ergonomic, non-slip grip.
  • Blending attachment: The stainless-steel blending attachment snaps into place in the motor body. The sharp, stainless-steel blade is protected by a splashguard to help prevent splattering of ingredients.
  • Ejector buttons: two ejector buttons, one on each side of the immersion blender body, provide easy removal of attachments when processing tasks are complete.
  • 8-inch immersion depth: use the immersion blender in deep pots or pitchers and mix all the way to the bottom.
  • 3-cup blending beaker and lid: Large enough to handle individual blending jobs. Lid seals the top of the beaker to store blended ingredients.
  • Convenient: The smooth surface of the immersion blender body and adapters allows for easy clean-up. All attachments and accessories are dishwasher safe. Compact, contemporary design assembles quick and easily, and stores neatly inside the storage bag.
  • Ergonomic design; 5-foot round power cord.
  • Stylish: available in four designer colors to accent any kitchen.

Customer Reviews

This immersion blender saves me so much time and work.
Renee Cuerden
I use the blender primarily for making smoothies and blended soups and it works perfectly.
Jenny
The problem is the seal on the bottom of the mixing shaft under the blade.

I love handblenders. I have this one and its attachments, and I use it pretty regularly. I have two complaints: 1) the powercord is thick, cumbersome, and hard to keep out of one's way. I had a cordless unit from a different manufacturer before, and I must say--the extra power here is nice, but I'm not 100% convinced the hassle of the cord is really worth that extra umph very often. 2) and here's the kicker--there's no actual "on" switch. You've got to hold it on the whole time. I really wanted to give one to my mom for Xmas, but she simply doesn't have the hand-strength any longer to make use of this unit. It takes me two hands to keep it held "on," and my hands cramp up when I've got something that I need to blend for a sustained amount of time. That said, this is a lovely unit (I adore the red color), and I get lots of use out of it. I just would have liked a chance to think about those two issues before I bought it (about a year ago), and certainly before I gave it for a gift.

I bought this to replace a Braun I had for 15 + years. This was to replace the cheap Braun on which the motor finally gave out after thousands of uses. I have the most expensive Braun and it is the best ever made, however Braun has stopped making hand blenders all together (I wrote to Braun and that is what they told me). I have always thought kitchen aid to be a great product and in the past they were, until they sold out to Westinghouse. The blender works well, although the slowest speed is higher than medium speed on my Braun.

The problem is the seal on the bottom of the mixing shaft under the blade. There is a rubber gasket or sealer that does not seal, but traps blended food under it. After a through washing and allowing it to stand and dry the food particles leak out and dry. I used mine daily, week days at work, to make a whole food/protein shake. Each day I washed it thoroughly and dried it. The next day I would take it to make my shake and note that particles of yesterdays shake had seeped out from under the rubber seal. I tried cleaning under the seal on the outside only to discover that the problem also appears to be in the center next to the shaft where it is impossible to clean. I could actually see food trapped half under the rubber seal and there is no way to clean it out. My shakes are green in color and I can see the green, gradually turn to brown, on the outer edge of the rubber seal and again whole food trapped under the center.

Amazon has been great about returning products that are defective and has assured me that they will get me a full refund for this product. My problem now is finding a quality hand blender equal to the top of the line Braun to replace this KA.

This among other KitchenAid products were a wedding gift. I absolutely LOVE this blender. It's been great for making smoothies in the morning for breakfast and also as an ice grinder. It has 9 speeds which allow for any consistancy. I highly recommend this product.

I had one of these that had a battery and the recharger hung on the wall with its attachments. I loved it, it was light and convenient. It finally broke and they don't make them that way anymore.

This whips up a storm, its detachable head cleans perfectly in the dishwasher with no fuss. It has tremendous power and its design sucks the food into the blade and a circular motion is set up for efficient blending. It does not whip cream, you need a whisk or beater for that. Instead it would turn cream to butter. It is kind of heavy but stands up on its own without tipping over. The beaker is the perfect container. It is kind of tall and the cord has so much memory that it takes up too much space on the shelf over my sink where I keep it. There is no safety. At all. If it were plugged in and you accidently hit the switch while your finger were in the blade, they would be chopped up. Because of this, it should never be stored plugged in. But overall, I do like it and I use it often. If I had small children, I would not have this in the house. And if I were teaching a child to cook, I would never, ever use it.

I bought this on a whim when I wanted to make a soup that needed to be pureed. It pureed it like a dream, very quickly--whole cloves of garlic vanished. It was much more convenient than putting HOT soup in a blender, small quantities at a time. What a mess that made!
Whether or not this is a worthwhile purchase for you really depends on your needs in your kitchen.
That being said, here are a few thoughts:
1. It's a little bit heard to clean the underside of the blade by hand. Probably the best way would be to immerse it in hot soapy water and blend. I personally prefer cleaning things like this immediately rather than putting it in the dishwasher, but it certainly is dishwasher-safe.
2. No ON switch, just pulse. But I find that preferable, as the pulse switch is located on the grip, and considering the sharpness of the blades, it's a good safety feature.
3. Power levels go up to 9, but I find the lower setting to generally be sufficient. When the setting is too high, the blades create a powerful suction with the bottom of the container. This can grow annoying at times.
4. This doesn't replace a blender nor does it replace a handmixer. If you make shakes or smoothies, soups, or other foods requiring puree, and find your blender for some of these to be cumbersome, this product may be something to consider.
5. The cup it comes with seemed really handy when I opened the box, but so far I've used it for nothing more than a holding container for the appliance on my counter top.
