I really wanted to like this blender stick but sadly I just can't (I bought it a year ago). The chopping attachment in the bowl doesn't, for me, get low enough in the bowl so you'd have to have quite a bit of mixture in there to get it to chop. Good for quickly chopping onions, but not for pesto. The stick blender itself hasn't worked out for me. I has scratched the bottom of my pans (I think it's the plastic feet which do this). The stick blender I used previously didn't do this (but I know I probably shouldn't have used it in pans anyway, so my own fault!). Can't really recommend this.
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry that you're disappointed with the blender and will be in touch shortly. Please be careful when using the blender in a saucepan as the metal edge of the blender could cause damage to the pan, particularly if it has a non stick coating.
