After some extensive research of things to buy for my kitchen and reading reviews left by other consumers, I end up purchasing the KitchenAid 3-Speed Immersion Blender. Boy...what a good buy it was. I'm sure glad I did that. This is a sturdy, well-designed, well constructed product that lives up to its brand "KitchenAid". It is one of the best things I bought because it can handle many different tasks. The attachment for chopping saves me time and tears from chopping onions and and from scooping out the unnecessary solids from my food processor. The KitchenAid 3-Speed Immersion Blender comes with everything. It has a versatile whisk attachment, a powerful blender that can mix at a rapid speed, and a chopping attachment that cuts half the time you spent on chopping all done on this machine; and the clean up is absolutely easy and messy-free. I am overall happy and satisfied with this product because it exceeded my expectations.
