Why the Breville Control Grip Immersion Blender?
Sometimes, making a simple soup can be hard work. Immersion blenders are supposed to make cooking easier, but they can often create problems instead of solving them: creating splatters, suctioning to the bottom of the bowl, and scratching pots. How can you control the power you need to get the texture you want?
The Breville Control Grip immersion blender has a redesigned blade system to address these problems: a bell-shaped base and internal ribbing break suction for greater control and efficient blending.
This is how the Breville Control Grip stands apart: whatever you need to blend, the Breville Control Grip has got it under control.
New design for excellent performance
The Breville Control Grip’s blade system has internal ribs that create turbulence. This unique system makes sure the food falls onto the blades, reducing suction to the bottom of the pot.
It also gives you precise control over texture, with 15 variable speeds, while the 8 inch immersion depth for large quantities or tall pots means that you can blend directly in the pot for less mess and more convenience. No more transferring soups from the pot to the food processor and back. The powerful 280 watt motor generates circulation, making sure all the ingredients are blended evenly.
These features make the Breville Control Grip excellent for multi-tasking, whether it’s blending, emulsifying, whipping, or pureeing. Use it to make velvety soups, thick mayonnaise, fluffy whipped cream, chunky pesto, dips, and salsa, smoothies, baby food and more.
Get a grip on excellent blending
The Breville Control Grip features an ergonomically optimized handle designed to fit your hand comfortably. Trigger operation keeps your hand in natural position for more stability and control, and its soft touch finish makes sure it’s easy on your hand, even when it’s hard on your food.
Designed with the Consumer in Mind
With all of these features, it’s no wonder that the Breville Control Grip has been rated the best immersion blender by a leading consumer magazine, beating out higher priced models. It’s built with high quality materials: both the blending shaft and the ice-crushing blades are made of stainless steel, ensuring durability. A 6 foot extra-long power cord makes the unit portable and convenient, providing the mobility of a cordless immersion blender but making sure that it is always ready to go when you need it (no charging necessary). The bottom of the blender has a non-scratch base to prevent it from scratching your non-stick pots.
It also comes with a handy whisk attachment for cream, egg whites, or light batters, as well as a blending jug and chopping bowl. The chopping bowl can be stored compactly in the jug for convenience and the lid of the blending jug can be used as a base to prevent slipping while blending. Easy clean parts can be hand washed and most parts (except motor, chopper lid and whisk gear box) can be washed in the dish washer on the top shelf only, making cleanup quick and easy.

The plastic mixing container is nicely designed with a handle for securing the container while blending, and the top when inverted and placed underneath acts as a skid proof cushion to keep the container from sliding around on the countertop while blending. The container and top can also be used to store soups or other liquids in the refrigerator.
For me the blender works better at making liquid based creations (smoothies, milk shakes, soups), however, it does a decent job of chopping vegetables, onions, etc using the chopper attachment. The whisk attachment works great for beating eggs and making whipped cream.
Clean up is a breeze, and Breville made this with safety in mind since the blades are protected by a shroud. The only potential negative is someone with very small hands may find the grip too large, however, I find the cushioned grip and trigger switch to be ergonomically pleasing.
A note of caution - Amazon pops up a recommendation for a chrome milkshake mixing cup when you purchase the Breville blender. The base of the cup is too small for the blender, and can only be used with the whisk attachment, not the blender blade attachment. I would pass on the milkshake cup.
A leading consumer magazine rates this blender higher than others costing 2X more. I followed that advice as well as the Amazon customer reviews and found a great kitchen tool at a great value.
I completely believe that the reviewer's wife did, in fact, find it difficult to detach the motor from the attachments. Perhaps the unit was defective, or maybe there's some other issue, but I wanted to assure others that this is not, in fact, a general problem with this blender. It attaches firmly, but it's not that difficult to detach. To be sure that it wasn't just my perception as a reasonably large adult male, I had my six and a half year old daughter try, and she was able to separate the parts without issue.
If you receive a defective unit, or if you lack the hand strength or size of a first grader, you might find it difficult to take this apart, but otherwise I see no reason to believe that you will.
Beyond that, this blender as as good as all the other reviews say it is. It is exceedingly well built and powerful. The variable speed control is a fantastic feature. The accessories work together like a charm. Cleaning is easy.
It's the first non-low-end immersion blender I've owned, so I realize that other immersion blenders in this range could be as good, but I can't imagine how any would be better. If you buy this, you will not be disappointed.
Pros: Trigger control is awesome. Wish the speed control was trigger-position sensitive, but it is easy to turn the speed knob on top while holding the trigger. Highest setting generates an amazing vortex and sucks strongly to the bottom of my test bowl. I believe this will work for my soup recipe.
Chopper: the blades have a small clearance to container edges, which should ensure food doesn't remain un-chopped around the edges.
Plastic on bottom of mixing shaft prevents scratching the bottom of non-stick pans.
Cons: plastic in parts of the drive linkage. Will see how long this lasts...
Plastic on bottom of mixing shaft may melt in hot pans. Will have to look this up before I use it!
Other thoughts: Overall, this product appears well constructed. The Chopper and storage contain are of particular note, using quality plastics. The only odd thing is that the storage lid does not seal as well on the storage container as I would have expected.
I expected the whisk to be a flimsy and worthless extra, but seems controlled and doesn't wobble excessively (at least at slow speeds). May have to try this on eggs...
