Summary: I received this as a gift years ago and it finally broke, so I bought a few different ones which my wife didn't like, so, I had to look until I found this exact one for her, now she's happy again, this one is easy to use, handle, clean and plenty of power, there's nothing out of the ordinary about it, just a good simple reliable and convenient design
Summary: I use it to mix my protein shakes. Easy to use and clean. Very satisfied with it. Great value compared to other blenders. It was bought based on the price and the reputation of Hamilton Beach products.
Summary: I really love this hand blender. It saves dragging out the big blender and having to wash it after use. This Hamilton Beach is far superior to another brand I had previously purchased because it moves around freely in the bowl. I think this is because of the little U-shaped notches around the rim. The older one I had, which did not have the notches, just sucked right to the bottom and wouldn't move from that position.
Summary: I purchased this for use in making handmade soap. I used it at the beginning of the batch for 30 minutes straight on the low setting, after which, it ceased functioning, and could not be restarted, even after cool down. Fortunately, I had a paint mixer attachment for my hand drill, and that worked great.
