What customers say about "General Specifications"
KitchenAid KHB2561OB 5-Speed Hand Blender
  • It works great and has the power it needs to take care of the larger chores.
  • It works just the way it's supposed to with plenty of speed and power. I love this thing.
  • Removable blade makes for easier cleaning and two speeds improves overall function.
  • It has two speed setting and if you really want to mash or grind something, this is it! It does great job at grinding nuts or garlics or mash potatoes.
  • Love the fact you can remove the mixer blade and shaft for cleaning.
  • The cuisineart 2-speed hand blender did not work at all. Not worth it
  • It's very convenient, but sometimes it is difficult to scrape off the leftover smoothie in the blade.
  • Low power and low speed.

KitchenAid KHB2561OB 5-Speed Hand Blender
  • It is easy to grip and easy to use.
  • Easy to use except for the speed control
  • The grip is comfortable to hold, the switch is placed in a convenient location and solidly built.

What customers say about "Features"
KitchenAid KHB2561OB 5-Speed Hand Blender
  • Changing attachments is quick, and they are dishwasher safe.
  • The storage case is another nice touch. No need to dig through crowded drawers to find the pieces that you need, they are all right at your fingertips.
  • Nice storage case that is just the right size to get the cord in without any difficulty.
  • The only drawback I observed was that it does not go in the dishwasher.
  • The blending arm is not dishwasher proof so you have remove the blade before putting it in the dishwasher.
  • The cord is a little stiff but not so bad that it interferes with use.

What customers say about "Accessories"
KitchenAid KHB2561OB 5-Speed Hand Blender
  • I have also used the whisk attachment. I find it easy to use and clean up.
  • I also like the whisk for small whipping jobs where I don't want to get the Mixer dirty.
  • The included chopping bowl works excellent for chopping nuts.or as a small food processor, but easier to clean.
  • The different blade make it a very flexible unit, I have made whipped cream with one blade and then mixed fresh liver and tomato paste with another and both came out great without lumps or unmixed parts.
  • The immersion blender is good but it comes with a lot of cheap plastic attachments that are useless if you own mixer and food processor.
  • Attachments are plastic and cheap! Not what I expect from KitchenAid.
  • Blade broke while using
