This cordless immersion blender with rechargeable 12-volt lithium-ion battery is just as powerful as a corded hand blender and it delivers premium performance. With 5 attachments, 5 speeds, and 2 blending arms, it's easier than ever to blend, chop, whisk, shred, froth, and purée. The 5 speeds provide you with precise control in the palm of your hand. The removable 8" and 13" blending arms each lock into the motor body for easy operation; blending arms of different lengths ensure that you can thoroughly blend ingredients in deeper pots or pitchers. The 5 attachments offer limitless culinary opportunities, all with one appliance; three blades boast the industry's first interchangeable bell blade assemblies; use the 'S' blade to purée, blend, shred or crush ice for drinks or smoothies; use the multi-purpose 'star' blade to quickly chop and mince dense foods; and the frother/beater blade is the perfect choice for blending pancake batter, whipping cream, or making froth for cappuccinos and lattés. The mini chopper attachment is ideal for chopping everything from Graham crackers, to vegetables, Parmesan cheese, and salsa. And the whisk attachment is ideal for smoothing sauces, as well as for whipping cream, egg whites, and vinaigrettes. The blender also comes with two guards that attach to each of the blades to protect the side walls of mixing bowls and cookware from scratching. Use the immersion blender directly in your own bowls or pots or use the handy 1 litre/4 cup blending jar with lid the comes with the unit. The soft-grip handle of the blender was designed for comfortable blending and control. A storage case is included for convenient storage of attachments.
