A hand blender is an indispensable tool in any kitchen. They are in every pro kitchen but often not in as many home kitchens but what a time saver. I was looking for an inexpensive and easy to clean blender and this was a great choice. One button on, easy and comfortable to grip, blender portion detaches and is dishwasher safe so it is easy to clean. My only regret might be I should of purchased one for with more power (higher watts) but then the price would of gone past what I wanted to pay. For the money I feel this is a great buy. Very well made and I have not had any issues.
