The wire whip is Great to for betting the life out of eggs.... Especially when making stiff eggs whites for different food recipes.... It comes with a wisk and a chopper/puree attachment. You can whip cream or egg whites in a glass. Want to remove those lumps in the gravy or puree vegetables in the soup stock. No problem. I do it right in the pot and easier to clean up than a blender. The attachments are not dishwasher safe but dip it in your dish water and turn it on.. The problem with this unit is the power buttons on top of the unit. They are so hard to push that most of the time I ended up using two hands just to use the darn thing. It took my average sized hands using one to push the button and one to control the blender.
