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.

    Comments about KitchenAid 2-Speed Immersion Blender:

    I use my immersion blender to make different soups and pasta sauces from scratch. My favorite thing to make is homemade creamy tomato basil soup and creamy cheddar broccoli soup with my immersion blender. I have used immersion blenders and got a lot of splash back, but not with this one. And it's so powerful, it takes no time at all to get every blended and smooth. My last immersion blender I got a lot of splash back when using it and it took a long time to get a smooth consistency. So I really like this blender because I have a family to feed and not a lot of time to spend prepping, having efficient tools like this one, gets dinner on the table much faster. Highly recommend.

        Comments about KitchenAid 2-Speed Immersion Blender:

        I received this immersion blender as a gift for Christmas. I am an adventurous cook and love to try new things. I usually use my stand up blender for soups, smoothies and sauces. Now with this immersion blender cooking has become a lot easier. It is really easy to use and set up. Cleaning is really use since the motor and the stick part with the blades detaches really easy. The stainless steel blades and stick cleans like a breeze. I usually hand wash the blades. The motor on this blender is pretty quiet. It has two speeds, low and high. High is really fast and low is alittle too slow, but it all depend on what you are making. This blender does have a lot of power. I make cheese broccoli soup and it powers right through the cooked broccoli no problem. The texture that this blender is able to get in smoothness is impressive. Purees come out really nice and smooth and silky. I have made baby food purées and you can make them chunkier or super smooth. The length of the power cord could stand to be alittle longer. I have found even 6 more inches would be helpful. Not a deal breaker though. I would recommend this immersion blender in a heartbeat. The price point is really great and it dermatologist be great quality that will last for many years.

            it is an amazing product, KitchenAid generally have very good products and that blender is a great one .Before i bought it i had a blender that actually made me nervous all time,dosen't mix well,when i want to make purees or soups i got mad because always it leaves large pieces of vegetables , moreover it takes a large space in the kitchen.but finally i bought this one and i was really surprise by the quality it blend well , now I make a lot of delicious things with it like purees for my baby,soups, sauce, smoothies …,and even ice can mix it ,it is powerfull,easy to use and quick. Another thing I like is that it does not take much space in the kitchen sometimes i took it with me when i want to go in holiday because it's very useful ,also the handel is from good quality and nice in touch is pretty cool,also it is easy to clean we can put the hand blender in dishwasher it is very safe because it made from the stainless steel .The product is came with a cup and manual even it is easy to use but in the manual they gave more deatles,and it is available such as silver white , green , red ,black for me i have silver i chose this color because my kitchen equipment are all in silver tht's why. about the price I found it nothing great comparing to the quality and the total design.i really love this product it make my life easier.

              I always love making soups and this blender made my job much convenient. It makes it easier to blend the soup right in the pot and has two different speeds to manage the blender.

                Comments about KitchenAid 2-Speed Immersion Blender:

                I have wanted this type of blender for some time and finally purchased one for a specific blended recipe I began to make almost every day. The speed and power were better than I had expected; the higher speed does a pretty good job of pureeing soft foods. (I don't think it would work on hard/uncooked food). I used it to make baby food too and and it was so easy! It made the perfect smooth consistency.
                I think my favorite aspect of this immersion blender is that you can blend the food in whatever container you wish. Those soups that need blending? No problem, just blend in the pot. I do a lot of smoothies and blend them up in the cup I'm drinking from.
                It does require hand washing, but takes very little effort. I am not one for kitchen gadgets, but this is one that I'm really glad to have around!

                  Comments about KitchenAid 2-Speed Immersion Blender:

                  I purchased this KitchenAid immersion blender shy from two weeks ago for my crunchy Ovomaltine milkshake (Brazilian recipe). It worked GREAT the first two times I did it. The first time I put too much milk, and the blender worked wonderfully. The second time it was just the perfect amount of milk, and the blender also worked great. The last time though, I was making two shakes at once, and I wanted it more creamy than liquid, so the blender had a hard time blending it all together, but I think that was just because I was skimping on the milk, I had to turn it off, remove the blade part, and attach again a couple times so I could blend it all. Other than that time, it worked great. I will definitely use it several times this summer.

                    I love this immersion blender. I make a lot of soups and this makes blending them very convenient. It's such a pain to pour a whole pot of hot soup into a blender and then transfer it back once blended, but this KitchenAid 2-speed Immersion Blender makes it possible to blend the soup right in the pot. The blender also has two speeds and a comfortable handle!

                    Blending Power
                    This immersion blender has great blending power! It blends quickly and thoroughly.

                    Versatility
                    You can blend almost anything with this immersion blender, it's very powerful!

                    Ease of Cleaning
                    Its a little tough to clean the blades and inside where the blades are, but it's nothing too time consuming.

                    Ease of Use
                    This immersion blender is so easy to use. Just put it in the pot or bowl, press the button on the handle, and it does the rest.

                    Durability
                    I've had my KitchenAid immersion blender for about two years now and it's still in excellent condition. I haven't noticed any decline in its performance.
