From The Manufacturer

Sometimes, making a simple soup can be hard work. Immersion blenders are supposed to make cooking easier, but they can often create problems instead of solving them: creating splatters, suctioning to the bottom of the bowl, and scratching pots. How can you control the power you need to get the texture you want?The Breville Control Grip immersion blender has a redesigned blade system to address these problems: a bell-shaped base and internal ribbing break suction for greater control and efficient blending.This is how the Breville Control Grip stands apart: whatever you need to blend, the Breville Control Grip has got it under control.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

15 variable speed settings.
A rubberized handle and a power button that you squeeze like a trigger make it one of the most comfortable models to operate of all the blenders we tested, and it didn’t spatter or suction to the bottom of our pot or our mixing cup.
We found the blender rather easy and convenient to use. The grip was comfortable and it was quite easy to operate the blender.
Right from the unboxing, the Breville Control Grip is impressive, all sleek lines and smart design.
It's one of the only models we tried that didn't suction to the bottom of a pot or mixing cup.
Easy to detach and dishwasher safe.
The device has an immersion depth of eight inches, so it can be used in tall pots with large quantities of ingredients
It features stainless steel blades and an exquisite design that constitutes an 8-inch depth for handling large amounts.
It’s light enough to gently stir a drink or heavy duty enough to easily puree your thick soups.

What reviewers didn't like

Includes no additional blades.
In our tests, the Breville couldn’t make super-speedy mayo (which involves combining all of the mayo ingredients in the cup and emulsifying them with the blending wand).
However, we have to point out that the grip may not suit people with small hands, as they may find it too large and therefore inconvenient to operate the blender.
The Breville generally failed or at lease flummoxed this portion of testing, often requiring a tooth-gritting tug of war to finally free the mixing shaft. It’s irksome, but far from a deal-breaker for an otherwise stellar experience.
It's on the pricier side
A little bit heavy and big for handheld blender.
The blender doesn’t come with any locking mechanisms on the chopping bowl
Has flimsy plastic elements
This is a high-end blender that comes with a higher price tag.
