We have a smoothie blender for smoothies, so I haven't tried it for that, but I've done soups, salad dressings, sauces, chutneys and salsas and it works like a dream. Clean up is easy, it feels sturdy, and it gets the job done.
The cord is slightly annoying, it completely gets in the way of me pretending it's a magic wand, but it isn't, it's a kitchen tool, so I'll just suffer that one out in relative silence.
The power of this hand held device is just amazing. For example, I had to make sure to pulse milk in the pitcher that comes with the blender; otherwise, I would have spun milk all over the place even at the lowest setting! This brings me to another feature I like and that is having the speed control knob sitting on top of the blender: it makes it easier to switch speeds while blending.
The grip and feel of the KHB2561CU 5-Speed hand blender is remarkable to me. It fits perfectly in my hands (which are probably average sized for a male) and is very comfortable.
Now for some of the reasons this blender didn't earn five stars for me. While the grip is really comfortable, this blender is a monster in size compared to other brands. Not only is it large, but it is heavy. I didn't realize how big it would be until it arrived. The case it rests in, with all the attachments, is the size of a brief case. I would have preferred something I could store in my kitchen drawers.
I also found it hard to remove the various attachments from the case. They have a very tight fit in their molded resting places which makes it difficult to remove without fear of breaking something. A simple cloth bag for the attachments would be better, I think.
I don't like the blade attachment guards and don't use them. The guards are meant to protect bowls and other cookware you might be working in. However, if I am breaking down cooked tomatoes, for example, I want the blade to engage the tomatoes. The supplied guards prevent the blades from doing something like that; save for one guard which will allow the blades to engage the food, but then why use the other guards? Sorry KitchenAid, but four guard attachments make no sense to me. The one that will allow solid foods and the blades to touch would have been enough, but then again I am not worried about scratch my bowls with a hand blender. So why the fuss?
Finally, the whisk attachment is permanently fixed to its own base which is then secured to the hand blender. I don't like this at all, since it is hard enough to hand wash whisks let alone one with a mechanical base attached to it. KitchenAid could have designed a whisk that was much more dishwasher friendly and one which could be removed from its base for that purpose.
Over all, though, I am quite pleased with my purchase and hope to get allot of use out of the KHB2561CU 5-Speed hand blender. KitchenAid products typically serve me quite well. The KHB2561CU 5-Speed shouldn't be an exception.
My only complaint was that it came and the speed knob was hard to turn, almost like it was broken. I created a exchange, and got my replacement and it was the same. I then went to my local chef store and tried theirs out new out of the box and it was the same, difficult to turn the knob. If anywhere in the manual it stated it'd be hard to turn I'd've just dealt win it, but it didn't. The hand blender works great now, and the knob turns with ease - just enough friction.
Overall besides this minor out of the box experience, for someone in a small home (like me) having a self contained case for my hand blender makes this a must have... I don't know how I lived without it, puréed soups are sooo much more amazing, and its a nice size to take out for a small job, not my entire food processor or blender.
I have used the chopper attachment for making slaw, and the whip for whipped cream -- both work exceptionally well once attached. The box that holds all the attachments is very nice as well.
This item was a replacement for one a Kitchen Aid that lasted for over 10 years with everyday use.
