Great product, plenty of power and the accessories come in handy. I look for 500w +, so it can do thick liquids like ganache. This is 800w. I also like the click-to-remove system, instead of the twist off design. The click off mechanism is easy to operate with one hand, whereas the twist off ones requires a little more effort. I like the flatter blend tip design over the domed shape. For shallow amounts of liquid, the flatter profile allows better mixing without entraining too much air. Whisk works well, albeit a little too flexible but most of these blenders are the same design with thinner whips. The blender is nice for small work but I wouldn't say it's a replacement for the more powerful single-function food processors. But overall is a nice setup for a reasonable price.
