good chopper and blender, but product came with missing whisk part
14 November 2014
Summary: The hand blender and chopper are great, though with some types of onions that have thin layers, the chopper leaves full layers that are not chopped. I used the blender in a boiling soup pot and it worked great. The major problem was that I received the product with a missing part of the whisk tool - the black part that connects it to the engine. This makes it impossible to use the whisk tool.
Summary: WORKS GREAT - I got rid of my Cuisinart mini-chopper. This one works much better and it thoroughly chops evenly without over-pulverizing stuff at the bottom while the blade makes bigger / denser items "dance" on the top (like my Cuisinart did). The hand blender works equally well to my Cuisinart but is lighter. The whisk is wonderful for whipping egg whites & protein powders into my son's morning shake.
Summary: This works well for the price. I wore out a Braun and needed to buy another. My *must* is the whipper, and it functions well. I would suggest hand-washing that piece, as it's the first part that wore out for me on my Braun. The chopper bowl is an excellent size and closes securely. If you can afford to buy one with more speeds, I'd encourage you to do that. If you're on a budget like I am, I believe this will satisfy your gadget ye.

Summary: I like to make individual-sized smoothies using frozen fruit and this blender doesn't handle it very well. It squirts water all over the counter and takes more time then the one I previously owned.
Summary: I have used the immersion blender a few times and each time made a huge mess. I have not tried the choppy thingy bowl or the whip-it-good attachments. I found it difficult to use in my largest metal pot. The section of the immersion blender pulls it down to the bottom, then it can't work because it can't pull in enough content to blend. Holding it too close to the surface makes it splatter all over the place...
Summary: This is a great tool for the kitchen! I have a really small kitchen with limited space, so I really liked that I was able to have a blender/food processor/and immersion blender in one! The food processor is fairly small and is good for processing small amounts, but is great for someone cooking for one. I bought this mainly for the immersion blender, which works great, but it's been nice to use the other features as well.
