Summary

Features: Speed control provides easy adjustment of speed. Located on the front of the motor body, the one-touch power button is activated by pressing and holding during blending. The motor body is designed for a comfortable, non-slip grip. The DC Motor provides powerful blending action and is designed for quiet, long-life operation. The Twist Lock Stainless Steel Blending Arm simply seats onto the motor body and is rotated to lock together. The sharp stainless steel blade is covered to help prevent splashing while blending. The 5-ft. power cord is long enough to take the Hand Blender to the cook-top or work area and rounded with no grooves for easy clean-up. The 3-Cup BPA Free Blending Jar is handy for individual blending jobs and features a non-slip base. Lid seals the top of the jar to store blended ingredients.

I recently got this immersion blender and this blender is definitely better than my previous blender. (which broke after a long 7 years of service). I am very happy with the purchase. I have many other Kitchen Aid equipments in my kitchen and absolutely love the brand! This blender did not disappoint me! I got the one in red and it matches with my red Kitchen Aid food processor. This blender has two speeds, which come in handy while making emulsions and the blade is removable and dishwasher safe making the clean up easy and less messy. The grip is very comfortable and it works very well. I use it many times during a week. This blender is also very reasonably priced as compared to similar models from other brands.
I appreciate the fact that this product did not come with a bunch of useless attachments. I got a cheap blender as a gift once and I was surprised to see a lot of attachments which weren't required at all.

I bought the KitchenAid 2-Speed Immersion Blender KHB1231 as a Christmas gift for my mother but it had to vital flaws. One, the blender did not really work for blending anything at all. The first thing we tried to make with it was a vegetarian chocolate mousse. The chocolate mousse recipe we use contains, an avacado, cocoa powder, and agave nectar (it's a lot like honey). Obviously the ingredients are all very soft and should have blended without a problem. However the blender has this cup kind of thing that goes over the blade and this kept the blade from being able to reach the avacado. This also is the second big problem we had with the blender, namely how hard it was to clean. Trying to pry your fingers in the small space to wipe it out was practically impossible. Another, smaller issue, was the weight. We found the blender quite heavy to hold; so be careful if you have arthritis or are not super strong.

      I didnt know how bad I needed this till I got it. It was an impulse purchase but definitely a great one! It's so easy to use and clean. I am not a great cook by any means and i normally don't enjoy it so it was so nice to get this and really enjoy using this. I use it mainly for mixed drinks and mashed potatoes or cauliflower. It makes mashing anything much faster. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!

      Comments about KitchenAid 2-Speed Immersion Blender:

      The Motor is very powerful and great for making drinks, sauces, and dips. It's not so great for thick stuff like potatoes because it catches and unlocks. The pitcher is the perfect size for dips. It can easily fit a few avocados and all the veggies for gaucamole plus it comes with a lid so you can just pop it in the fridge.

              Excellent blender. Seems very sturdy and works great in my bullet proof coffee. It also does a good job on milkshakes.

                  I bought this ,because I love the color and its features. I've wanted one of these for a long time. Soup time is here again and I couldn't resist. It is everything as advertised. A joy to use,i use this almost everyday. It is fast and easy to use and clean-up is a snap. I love it and wish I would have bought one years ago! It has a Sleek design. I had an older one from a different brand and it would cause the food to sometimes fly around, but there's no mess with the kitchenaid and the price was good too.I had a terrible time with my old blender,till my husband surprised me with this hand blender.The best feature is that it comes apart for cleaning. My last one did not and it made it hard to clean. It handles well, comes apart to clean and is much less noisy than my last one.I love to have this handy for blending creamy soups, so that I don't have to pour the mixture into a blender, pour it out, put in more, blend, pour it out, etc. It saves three steps at least. It also doesn't take much room for storage.
