Not worth it

17 February 2014
  • Summary: I hate to say it, but I agree with the poor reviews. On mine, the power cord pulled loose and the blender attachment broke within months.

Bad design

Jonathan I. Klein, Amazon
18 August 2013
  • Summary: Do not buy this immersion blender. They use a rubber washer to apply friction attaching the blender motor (outside of the washer) to the rod holding the blade (inside of the washer). This is a bad design.

Will it fit my hand?

c treeful "c treeful", Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: After reading the spec's on all the hand blenders, I opted for the Viking Stainless Hand Blender because of the two speeds and I have other Viking products that have withstood the test of time. I was concerned about how my hand would fit it, being of small stature, but found no problem gripping it.

Eventually Broke

W. Terry, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought the Viking to replace the Cuisinart immersion blender that I broked the "stick" on. I've had the Viking for about 3 years, and use it almost daily to make protein shakes. The blade broke in half about 2 weeks ago. Even though it is a detachable item, I can't find a replacement for it.

  • Summary: Yes I am a new user. Hopefully the honeymoon for this fabulous stick blender will last for many years to come. I was using my Nija blender to make my morning smoothies. So I tried my new Viking stick blender.

Will never buy another Viking product

Disappointed, Amazon
31 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased the SS Hand Blender 15 months ago for 100+$$. While making a smoothie the unit melted. I brought it back to my place of purchase and after waiting a week was told I would need to contact Viking directly.

Do NOT waste your money on this hand blender

Anni, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: This is one of those times, where I wish I could rate this item with ZERO stars. I purchased this hand blender, knowing the high quality this brand typically carries for stoves, etc.

Replaced the stem twice now!!

outdoorgirl, Amazon
29 February 2012
  • Summary: First of all this blender is great until it breaks and you must order another stem/blade. And they're not cheap, plus shipping. I have had mine for about 2.5 years. I almost exclusively use it to puree soup and it has been great for that purpose.
