Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The soft-grip handle of this blender offers a non-slip and comfortable grip when continuously blending ingredients.
For a no-fluff option that’s as cheap as it gets, this is as good as it gets.
The simple design of the KHB1231CU and perfect positioning of grip and speed control, makes blending a one – hand job. It motor is steady, yet powerful.
Can handle pureeing liquids.
The best thing about any KitchenAid product is the warranty, though! This is a tool you can get for less than $50, but it still comes with a 1-year, no-hassle guarantee that covers you if anything goes wrong. With most other budget appliances, you’re on your own if something breaks or malfunctions.
The size is small and it is suitable for a crowded kitchen where space management is needed.
Quiet and powerful motor, quieter than the Cuisinart. You’ll be amazed at how quickly and quietly the blender purees!

What reviewers didn't like

Made with plastic.
Not powerful enough for complicated tasks.
If there are any cons with this KitchenAid product, they are attached to the hand blender’s durability. This is an inexpensive kitchen tool, and it shows in the quality of the blender and its associated plastic cup. If you’re not careful, you can accidentally crack the plastic easily.
Even though it is small and fit, the blender is quite heavy and it is difficult to handle.
Twist to lock blending arm into the motor body. This is supposed to be a ‘feature’ but really is a royal pain in the butt especially when used to puree hot soup. This is a huge con of the KitchenAid. I find it very annoying to detach the blending arm from the motor.
