The KitchenAid 5‑Speed Hand Blender motor body is made of stainless steel, with a smooth transition to the non-slip rubber part. The motor body also has the speed control dial, power button, and 5ft long power cord, which is long enough to allow you to maneuver.
Although the KitchenAid hand blender has only a 200 watts motor, this is powerful torque-wise, allowing smooth blending even of thick mixtures. The blender is also equipped with a thermal protection system that automatically stops the machine if it is overheated.
The blender comes with a five variable speed dial located on the top of the body unit and a one-touch power button on the front of the body unit. To start the blending, you select the desired speed, press the power button, continue holding it, and release it when finishing your blending. Although the multi-speed setting provides some flexibility over the blending process, the bad side of it is that you have to use another hand to change the speed while you hold the power button. Besides, the speed dial is slippery and not easy to turn.
