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.

This little gadget is pretty handy. It comes with multiple tools that can be applied depending on your need. It pretty much takes the replacement of a lot of your bulky kitchen gadgets. I liked it best for baking, I was able to use the whisk setting and then the mixer. The attachments were easy to put on and take off, I didn't have a problem at all with it. It can be time consuming to clean but no more than the 5 other machines you'd use instead. I say all in all its a kitchen must for either a start out chef or an experienced one. You can't lose.

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.

    Quick installation and it is used in many things, for example, in the act of juice or mixing ingredients when cooking, but it is heavy and export-noise

              Very good machine lots of power and torque even on the first speed. I have copped onions, potatoes for hash browns and chicken in this thing and it's great. Worth the money.
