Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: KitchenAid KHB300OB Hand Blender, Onyx Black (Kitchen)
This is one of the best kitchen appliances I have ever bought. It's versatile, compact, quiet, powerful, and easy to clean. I cook a lot and have used the KitchenAid immersion blender to make smoothies, to whip egg whites and cream (using the whisk attachment), to chop fruits and vegetables (using the food processor attachment), and to puree soups. It crushes ice and frozen fruit quickly and quietly. My only substantive complaint so far is that the food processor has a tendency to puree rather than to chop, so you have to use very short pulses and check after each one. You don't end up with a nice uniform dice, but it's good enough for home cooking. Also, the food processor is fairly small, which is fine if you have a 1-2 person household like mine, but may not be sufficient if you're cooking for a large family. Finally, I wish the blender came in stainless steel along with the plastic finishes, but I can't really complain about something that trivial when a machine works this well!
