Variable Speed Control dial on top of Blender
A great gift for those with small kitchens, this hand-held blender and its accessories take the place of several larger appliances. Included are a regular blending blade (which can be immersed 8 inches into soup pots or deep bowls), a wire whisk for beating eggs and batters, and an enclosed chopper for nuts, cheese, and fresh herbs. Also included are a four-cup mixing beaker with a snap-lock lid, useful for storing blended ingredients, as well as a drawstring bag to keep all the components together. KitchenAid covers the blender with a one-year, hassle-free replacement warranty. --Ann Bieri

I was surprised at the power of this blender! The best part for me is it's easy to clean and takes up so little kitchen real estate. Making soups and hummus was a breeze. Whisking up egg whites was so much less painful than dragging out the mixmaster...just give yourself a big enough bowl or they will be all over the kitchen. The small food processing container is just the right size for 1 or 2 people. The variable speed lets me control how coarse my chopping is too. I did find that turning the entire apparatus upside down and sideways or shaking it helped in chopping everything uniformly...but it only took a couple of seconds.
I would have given this blender a solid 5 stars, but making smoothies with ice was not perfect, although once I got the technique down (moving the blender up and down and and around a lot to "attack" the ice) it was ok. It took more than a few seconds. If you drink a lot of ice blended drinks or smoothies, this job is done more efficiently on a good conventional blender. If you only will use it occasionally for this purpose, the KitchenAid will do fine. Maybe KitchenAid could come up with a special blade or container/blade combo for ice blending, I'm sure a lot of people would buy it, I know I would.
All in all, I don't regret my purchase at all. It's a versatile and compact appliance that will be with me for years to come.
I know it's out of warranty, so there's no point expecting anything from Kitchen Aid, but to say I am seriously disappointed is an understatement. Granted, this hand blender lasted much longer than the abysmally feeble Braun one I bought a few years back that kicked the bucket within weeks (seriously), but when I spend this much money on an appliance from a company like Kitchen Aid and then pretty much treat it like it's made of gold, I do NOT expect it to die on me after such a short amount of time when used quite sparingly. I would absolutely love to own another one of these, as when it works, it is worth its weight in the above-mentioned gold, but I just can't bring myself to spring for another one if it's pretty much to be expected that it'll just stop working for no good reason a couple of years later. Sigh. I got this model because (after the bad experience with the Braun) I did my research and came to the conclusion that the Kitchen Aid was the best one out there, so I guess I will just have to be hand-blenderless as I have no idea where to find a model that this won't happen with.
This item comes with 3 seperate attachments. The motor is housed as a seperate assembly. This is good - as it makes cleanup a snap. (All the attachments - except for the motor - are dish-washer safe)
There maybe cheaper hand-blenders out there - but from as far as I can tell from my searches - the Kitchen Aid is the only one that allows you to dial in the speed of the motor.
For most applications the lowest speed is enough - but for whisking - its good to have the higher speed options.
The blender does a great job. And as its made out of metal - you can take it to the hottest foods without a worry. And as its made out of metal - it does not take on the stain from foods - like when you work with tomatoe paste or indian spices like turmeric.
I absolutely love the chopper. It does a great job on onions - and actually chops it instead of making a paste out of it. (Though on tomatoes - it doesnt do a good job chopping - so use it for crushing tomatoes). And again cleanup is a breeze - as the chopper can be rinsed under water - or thrown into the dishwasher.
