Summary: I really like this stick blender. I use it to make Fermented Mayonnaise in my Probiotic Jar. It is the whisk blade that works so well, and when my cheap chinese stick blender with this special whisk blade broke that I decided to purchase a Bamix.
Summary: I bought my Bamix that is almost identical to this one at a home show in Kansas City, 2003. It is now 2013. NO loss in power, and it is only this month that I'm having to replace my mincer blade.
Summary: this is my most favourite gadget, I bought it just over 12 months ago and it does what it says on the can. Amazing product, use it everyday, keep it on top of my microwave. If you are scared of price,I can honestly say so was I, but this machine has made all my other gadgets redundant.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Breville Immersion Blender that turned out to be a huge lemon. Because of that, I was a bit nervous to take the plunge and buy a new immersion blender especially from a brand that was new to me.
