I bought this hand blender to blend soups on the stove without having to pour into the regular blender. It worked great, and blended the soup easily. I love the handy bag that came along with it, and the easy to use attachments. I am very happy with the purchase, and wish I had bought it a few years ago! It was highly rated by cooking magazines. I got the best price on Overstock.com.

I haven't used this much, but I think I will end up getting rid of my handmixer, because I certainly don't need it with this set of tools. I made mayonnaise with the blender and blended soup right in the pot,, chopped onions with the chopper attachment and know that I will use the whisk soon. I do wish the stick blender portion could be clicked off and on because it is uncomfortable to keep pressing the button while blending, but overall, I am happy with this set.
I love this thing. Never had one before. Bought this because I had packed my two mixers during a move and didn't want to purchase another. Also bought my son one and am saving for Christmas. I love the way it blends, mixes, whips and makes all ingredients smooth. It's great.
Very versatile. Takes a little to get use to but once you have the need, it's super fast. Your imagination will do the work as well. Just don't put the large adapter, I forget the name of the part but it looks like a horn mute, in the dishwasher (like they advise). It will retain a little water. Unsure if will damage internal shaft. Time will tell. *better to read instructions before you use ;).

It's chilly here in sunny Florida, quite uncommon for this time of year. I was pleasantly surprised when I received my KitchenAid Blender as I was making soup and was wanting to use this immersion blender to thicken it. Thanks again for great products.
