I use handle blender since my first daughter born. I started using to make baby food, than I learned how to make sauce with it, juice.. and handle blender is at my live more than 7y. I got 4 until now. Because I use to much, they eventually broke, so this time I started look something more powerful. This one is amazing. It is strong and you can change the speed, item important which the others I had didn’t do it. Is detachable so is easy to clean. My only complain is because is a little big than the others I had, what I am fine, since is a lot powerful too!
