I ordered this immersion blender after much research of many brands. It had the wattage, design and attachments I was looking for. I used it the entire week of Thanksgiving preparing everything from pumpkin puree to fresh whipped cream for the pumpkin pie dessert. Having this blender sped up my prep time on all of my holiday dishes and now is out on my counter because I use it practically every day! I love it!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality and feels like it will last for years.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate description. The only thing missing from the description was the length of the mixing shaft.
I bought this after reading the good reviews on overstock. (search the net, not all reviews are that great.) I love this thing. All I needed was a hand blender, and I was not too excited about the wisk and chopper attachments. Well, the attachments are fantastic. I can see me using that chopper for just about everything: 5 second minced onions, black beans for soup, salsa, it is really handy and waaaaay easier to clean than a blender. The wisk I initially scoffed at (how hard is it to wisk?) but then my carpel tunnel flaired up - auto-wisk to the rescue! Have only had it for a couple months but so far, so great - highly recommended.

I'm not an every day cook, but when I cook the meal tends to be complex and time consuming. I had been looking for a good quality wand with whisk attachment for a new home I was moving in to, and this unit appealed to me more than any I had seen first hand. The price was such that it was worth the gamble of buying without handling. I used this last week while making a buffalo chicken mac 'n cheese, wherein the cheese sauce takes a good 20 minutes of whisking by hand. This wand made making the cheese sauce a piece of cake! No tired hands, no sore wrists when finished. It was a pleasure using this tool. My pan, however, was a bit shallow. Even at its lowest speed the wand whisk tended to splash sauce all about the stove. Next time I will use a deeper pot. That was my fault - not the wand's. I would certainly buy a replacement if I ever need to, and I absolutely recommend it.

I have used and purchased hand blenders before. This one is the "Cats Meow". Love it.
And the blender and the whip are detachable and can be put into dishwasher. It has several interchangeable blades. Whips through onions and peppers and potatoes. My how it works on mashed potatoes. I don't use my food processor any more, it is to noisy. Very convenient mounted on the wall by where I do most of my cooking.

I have blenders but rarely haul them out to use. Cleaning is a hassle. And I hate cooking someting, pouring part into the blender, processing, pouring out into another container, repeating until the job is done. Plus the cleanup! With this, I use the immersion blender in the pot I cooked in. It takes half the time (or less) with far less mess and cleanup. This has a far more powerful motor than the "C brand"
and the chopping bowl makes fast work of peppers, onions, bread for crumbs. Glad I bought it!

I read other reviews of injuries and was almost turned off from product. With care and respect for the sharpness of the blades, I see no problems. Just follow directions. The motor is heavy duty. Might not be as speedy setting up but the results are worth the effort.
very poor plastic. breaks easily.
Horrible support. Never call back and no live person on duty ever. Rolls to a full voice-mail box or when empty , you get no return call. Went with the *** which has work out very well for the last 3 weeks.
Bought one for myself and each of my kids for Christmas. I have used it a few times this first week and love it. We made smoothies for breakfast one day, I had been concerned the container might be too small but it was perfect. Have used the chopper a couple times, very fast and made small pieces that I wanted. Also whipped cream with the whisk. All in all I am very satisfied, this seems very powerful for such a small appliance, I like it so much better than the blender.
It is a powerful and versatile tool with adjustable speeds. All the additional gadgets work excellent. I also like the wall rack. However, the gadgets get attached to the motor with flimsy "twist a little and snap on" plastic parts that got broken after 5 uses. I put them back with epoxy glue, but decided not to use the gadgets anymore. Also the blue rubber that covers the on/pulse controls easily breaks. Too bad, because it size, powerful motor and gadgets work great, is handy, lightweight and attaches to the wall which is convenient when you have limited kitchen & storage space. Still, it need improvement.
What a powerful little tool. I love it and highly recommend this immersion blender to everyone who loves to cook. It does just about everything. No kitchen should be without one of this hand-held blender. The price wasn't too bad for two gadget in one.
