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 immersion blender makes things so easy. It's great for shakes and smoothies, mixed iced drinks and breaking vegetables for soups and purees. Also good for blending sauces to make sure there are no lumps and making salsa. Clean up is easy. There is nothing I have attempted so far that this cannot handle. Great kitchen tool. Small enough to fit in a drawer to save counter space.

I've never used an immersion blender before I purchased this one. It works great. Good for deep dishes or pots. Still learning all the different blades.

Fantastic device! I had been reading reviews of hand blenders like this over the past couple of years, and had been considering picking one up for some time now. We were at Thanksgiving dinner at a relative's house this past November, and our host had a smaller stick blender - another brand - that he used a few times during meal prep. I was, frankly, blown away by the ease with which he was able to transform 20lbs of boiled potatoes into whipped potatoes, and was sold on the concept right there. At the end of the meal, I also watched as he used it to chop up leftover cooked veggies and turkey into broth that he was converting into a beautiful soup. I noticed, though, that while he worked, he complained a bit that the unit he was using (not the Kitchenaid in this review - another brand) was under-powered, and that he had to give it a rest fairly frequently. I kept that in mind while searching my the one that I would choose for myself. The week after Thanksgiving, I started searching, read dozens of reviews, compared brands, models, length, attachments, materials (including metal vs. plastic), features, etc. This Kitchenaid KHB2571SX stood out for me in several ways. It's extremely powerful and can likely handle thicker liquids, tougher items that need shredding or chopping, is more versatile than most with a LONG extension arm that can easily reach the bottom of a deep cooking pot, and is generally built like a rock. It's very easy to assemble and disassemble, comfortable to hold and operate, and the motor is one of the quietest on the market, with little vibration when in use. I love the storage case that comes with it as well -- it's like an attache case, with separate compartments for each piece, so it's easy to put away, knowing you can find all the needed parts next time you need to use the blender. I used it at Christmas, and it was fantastic for whipped potatoes. These were the smoothest -- and easiest to make -- I've ever made. We've used it for soups and w

I dreamed for 5 years! Being a young cook by profession I use it practically every day for 6-7months now and I'm so happy. After trying several robots at "low" prices that never lasted long I decided to put the price and try the KITCHENAID experience! I do not regret it! only downside the missing spring in the new models .... but does not move more than that
