4.0 out of 5 stars Solid design, plenty of features, March 20, 2010

This review is from: Nesco HB-17 Professional Grip 'n Go Immersion Handheld Blender with Attachments (Kitchen)
I bought this to replace a cheap $5 immersion blender. The failure mode was that the blender connection was metal, but the motor side was plastic and got tore up. I attempted to find a reasonably priced immersion blender with both parts made of metal but couldn't. As a result I settled on this one based on mostly good reviews, more attachments than most and the variable speed motor. I use this to mix protein drinks after my workout. After about 2 months of use, I am definitely impressed with the quality of it. The blender is a little heavy, but conveys the feeling that it is solidly built. I've only used the standard mixing attachment and the cup, which has handy graduates in mL and oz. I've used the wisk, but just as a hand wisk and it worked fine. The mixer can be a little hard to clean because there is an o-ring seal behind the blades. So far, the plastic gear on the motor doesn't show any wear. I'm hoping that this model is built and aligned well enough that I'll never have to worry about the plastic ring gear failing.
