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 ;).

I decided to give this blender a try after going back and forth about getting a blendtech. The idea of saving myself a few hundred dollars and the fact that this would also give me a food processor sold me. I mostly use mine for making smoothies and find that it does the job very well. It's convenient and I love that it's super easy to clean. I love that it has a little attached band to tie up the cord and that it comes with a bag to organize the parts. Those extra details make it so much easier to store the blender, so that it's easily accessible and that makes me not lazy to reach for it.
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.
