The chopper is worth the upgrade from the stick alone as it will do everything the old counter-top hogging food processors ever dreamed of doing, but with half the clean up time. It also makes it easy for chopping just enough for one or two servings without breaking out the heavy hardware.
Unless you use a mixer for tons of cookie dough or to knead bread (in which case you want the biggest and toughest counter-top kitchenAid stand mixer you can afford...) then this is the best I've seen. Stick this blender down into a bubbling hot soup pot full of veggies, beans and meat -- it will puree the whole pot into a smoothe and beautiful soup in a matter of 2-3 minutes.
A great product (and a great gift.)
I thougt it would be worth upgrading, and the KitchenAid seemed like a good bet: apparently strong motor, the usual attachments, and a nice bright red. I'm a sucker for color.
I managed to go through three of these hand blenders in a year. One of my main uses for a wand-style blender is frozen fruit smoothies. The real test is frozen strawberries, but the first one I killed choked on frozen mango chunks, about four weeks into owning it. The motor jammed up and overheated, eventually shorting out and dying.
I have to commend both Amazon and KitchenAid for their customer service. They obliged me with prompt replacements, and finally, after the demise of the THIRD KHB300ER, KA reimbursed me. However, I have to say that there are other wand-style blenders out there that can do the job better, for much less money.
The chopper is fantastic for so many simple chores where a full-size food processor is too big to be efficient, and it's really, really easy to clean! I've used it for mincing carrots & onion when I wanted a course, sliced (hand cut) cabbage shape cole slaw, used it to blend home made cheese balls and dips and to finely chop some of the ingredients I add. Unlike so many multi-featured appliances I've had over the years, this one has been designed without annoying crevices or seems where food can get caught, or motorized parts that get dirty but can't get wet, so cleaning is a joy. I never feel like a quick, small quantity chop isn't worth doing because of prep or cleanup anymore. This gets it done, and fast.
The stick blender is very powerful and also ridiculously easy to clean and remove or attach. I use the whisk attachment infrequently, but when I have, it's performed very well.
The only slight drawback is lack of a storage system for the unit and attachments. I generally leave the power unit sitting upright, connected to the chopper base so it sits comfortably on the counter. I wish I could get a rack or some other kind of custom storage, preferably hanging wall mount, so I could store & grab the items more easily.Read more ›
