I bought this because I wanted an easier way to mix my protein shakes using whey powders. They are hard to mix in a shaker without getting lumps. A full blender works but there is more to clean up and blenders are LOUD. By contrast, this Stick Mixer does the mixing in seconds and then cleans up in seconds too. Having the business end twist off for rinsing under the tap is brilliant. I have also started using this to mix my salad dressings that I make for my daily lunch salad. Works great and again it is quick to clean. My wife has used it to puree cooked veggies when making soup. No complaints yet. This thing gives a lot of bang for the buck.

For a little "stick mixer" this is a surprisingly powerful immersion blender. I bought it as a gift for my mom, and now I'm thinking of getting one for myself too! Excellent value.

I love this little stick mixer! I hated the cleaning of the traditional style blender with the big glass jar. This is a snap to clean. It does take a few seconds to get through hard ice cream, but no big deal. I also use it in chowder and it improves the consistency to be more blended than before.
This stick blender is a two-speed model. It blends well and does not bog down. I have used it with crushed ice to chop the ice into a fine slush, and it did a great job. I have not used cubes, so I don't know how well it would handle them. It is easy to clean and not noisy to use. The only issue I have is that when the blender is together for use, it is a bit top heavy to stand up on the counter. I lay it down so that it does not fall over.
Read the review in COOK"S magazine and checked here for price. As usuall Overstock had the best price around here and I purchased one. Works just as promised. Could use a bit more power, but is just great for everyday kitchen use to blend soups, smoothies, etc. No problems in the month I've used it.
I saw this unit rated number 1 on "Cooks Illustrated" I bought it for pureeing soups, smoothies etc. It works Great! Easy to disassemble for cleaning and storage. I have had it for about one month and it still works well. The graduated mixing cup is a real plus too. I don't have to use another measuring cup when making a smoothie (I make at least one each morning, a soy milk, banana and Fruit of the day smoothie). When I need to puree a soup, all I have to do is stick the unit in the pan and press the button. No more getting out the blender etc. etc. I find it very useful.
I found the mixer easy to use as well as clean up being a breeze..It is just what I was looking for. This product would be great to take on trips for quick blending of drinks..It look good sitting on my kitchen counter & takes very little space
my other one broke so looked on overstock and said that is the one I want.
