KitchenAid 5-speed Immersion Blender

Summary

Unlike blenders operating on alternating current (AC) this KitchenAid hand blender is equipped with a powerful, quiet direct current (DC) motor for long-lasting, controlled blending. Performs beyond regular immersion blenders with 5 speeds, 8" removable arm and 3 interchangeable bell blades for task-specific precision. Includes "S" blade to puree, blend, shred or crush ice for drinks or smoothies. Multipurpose blade quickly chops or minces dense foods. Beater blade blends pancake batter, whips cream or froths. With the extra-long arm, this hand immersion blender reaches to the bottom of stockpots, blending hot or cold ingredients, and twist locks for sturdy, steadfast operation. Removable pan guard for blade attachments preserves side walls of mixing bowls or cookware. This immersion blender is the perfect combination of torque and handheld efficiency to simplify prep. The 2 1/2-cup chopper bowl chops onions and peppers for salsa or dip, chops meats, cheeses or vegetables for hors d'oeuvres, soups or casseroles, chops nuts for desserts. Premium 5-speed hand blender also includes stainless-steel whisk attachment to whip sauces, dressings or aerate batters. Soft-grip, nonslip ergonomic handle with one-touch control provides superior comfort for easy single-handed operation. Sturdy 2 1/2" Dia. arm for firm control. BPA-free chopper cup and pitcher. Extra-long 60"L cord. Removable parts are dishwasher-safe. Includes: • 8" removable arm • 1-qt. blending pitcher with lid • 2 1/2-cup chopper cup • Whisk attachment • Interchangeable pan guard • Storage case Since the first stand mixer was introduced in the early 1900s, the KitchenAid brand has been acclaimed internationally for performance. Inventors of timesaving kitchen appliances, KitchenAid products are the result of extensive testing and research.

Perfect tool that's will complete your kitchens
The shape of the blender fits comfortably in your hand
One thing that does get on my nerves just a bit is the cord,
it seems to get in my way when I'm using it sometimes.
The attachments are so easy to swap out and quick to clean.
This is a must-have for every cook, whether you are a seasoned chef or a just dabbling in the kitchen
It looks nice and is portable I can not complain.
Attachments connect easily and the buttons are easy to get to also it is small enough to fit in my hand So if you have a task of whipping some cream making mashed potatoes or even just crushing ice this Kitchen Aid 5-speed Immersion Blender is the only kitchen appliance you need. It is durable with stainless steel and plastic material
There is a lot of power behind this blender. I love to make drinks. You start with the ice and this blender chops it up and turns it into really smooth drinks.

            Comments about KitchenAid 5-speed Immersion Blender:

            I had been looking at immersion blenders for a while, checking prices, reading reviews. I had also had been looking at food processors, because mine hit the wall (figuratively. Literally, it hit the floor) and I rely on it heavily. I decided to get this little beauty because I am easily coerced into buying things based on brand recognition. I had no idea that I was going to kill two birds with one blender (not really "birds." More like one soup, one salsa). It works great. The carrying case makes me feel important when I take it out, and I have the urge to say something like, "step back. I'll handle this."
            We have a smoothie blender for smoothies, so I haven't tried it for that, but I've done soups, salad dressings, sauces, chutneys and salsas and it works like a dream. Clean up is easy, it feels sturdy, and it gets the job done.
            The cord is slightly annoying, it completely gets in the way of me pretending it's a magic wand, but it isn't, it's a kitchen tool, so I'll just suffer that one out in relative silence.

            Comments about KitchenAid 5-speed Immersion Blender:

            An essay is, generally, a piece of writing that gives the author's own argument — but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet, and a short story. Essays have traditionally been sub-classified as formal and informal. Formal essays are characterized by "serious purpose, dignity, logical organization, length," whereas the informal essay is characterized by "the personal element (self-revelation, individual tastes and experiences, confidential manner), humor, graceful style, rambling structure, unconventionality or novelty of theme," etc. Essays are commonly used as literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g., Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills; admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants, and in the humanities and social sciences essays are often used as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary filmmaking styles, and focuses more on the evolution of a theme or idea. A photographic essay covers a topic with a linked series of photographs that may have accompanying text or captions.

              Comments about KitchenAid 5-speed Immersion Blender:

              I love the Kitchen Aid 5-speed Immersion Blender for making soup. It is so impractical when making something like a soup to pour the hot liquid into a blender, then blend it and then transfer it back into the pot. I feel like so much soup is wasted and it is just a messy process. Therefore, I love using my immersion blender to blend soups. There is no wasting soup, no mess, and much less cleanup. The only small complaint that I have is that the blade in the blender is a little hard to clean. The metal wand with the blade does detach from the handle, but the blade is covered by a dome, making it a little hard to clean the top of the blade and inside the top of the dome. Therefore, I would recommend putting this in water right after it is used so nothing gets stuck in there. Doing this will save you a lot of scrubbing and hassle later on. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend this product!
