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 bought this to have a stick blender to make mirror glaze for a cake. That turned out really well.I love the Kitchen Aid mixer I have had for 35 years. My food processor died suddenly so I used the meat chopping attachment. I was making a mousse and used the whisk attachment. This is turning out to be much more useful than I expected. Being able to purchase an extended warranty was also a plus in case anything does happen.It is easy to use and clean.Convenient storage container, quick assembly, and clean up.I have been thinking about purchasing one for a long time. Glad I finally did. Now I can make mayonnaise or hummus in a blink, puree soups right in the pot. This has definitely cut down on wasted time in the kitchen moving things from one pot to another. Love it!
      Kitchen Aid 5-speed Immersion Blender does exactly what we want it to do. I recommend it to all my friends ,purchased this to make homemade sauces.Another point, the hand guide attached with it, is very helpful and explains all its functions.I am really happy to have such this blender.

      Comments about KitchenAid 5-speed Immersion Blender:

      I bought this KitchenAid 5-Speed Immersion Blender early last year and found its performance quite trust worthy.
      Performance
      The blender was quite powerful and it blended most of the items within minutes without troubling.
      Versatility
      It was versatile enough to blend all kinds of foods and other items while maintaining their tastes.
      Ease of Use
      The placements of buttons were not good but apart from that using it was quite convenient.
      Ease of Clean
      Cleaning was fine as the parts were easy to separate and then clean accordingly.
      Design
      The design was beautiful and elegant. It was comfortable to hold as it was not that bulky.
      Durability
      I used it for seven months last year before giving it to one of my cousins. I did not face much trouble apart from searching for the buttons and worked like a charm.
