Rated 1 out of 5 by Worsdesignever Splashes no matter what...
this is not my first one, i have used different models since 1989, this is the first one i cannot use, if i could change the bar to a model that does not splash, then i will give a better review, but i dont know where to get the suitable bar, or which model could be compatible

Rated 1 out of 5 by BlenderAfficionado Terrible. Splashes everywhere. Impossible to use.
Design of blade-cover is unsuitable for strength of motor. It splashes everywhere, however deep the saucepan. And I do know how to use them, I know they have to be fully immersed. Main point of a hand-blender rather than a conventional blender is to use it in saucepans, bowls, etc, without transfering to a beaker, but even its own beaker doesn't quite cope. Philips have since introduced a different design for this non-variable speed version and only use this design for the variable-speed model, but as I had this in its box for some time before my old one eventually died I have no proof of purchase, and Philips will not replace it. So much for buying a reliable make. I've used various makes of hand-blender for possibly about 30 years, even before most people realised they existed, and this is the worst one. I'll have to bin it and buy a cheaper model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lizziej51 A great product that does everything you'd expect.
An extremely versatile product. Has a solid feel to it and the 600 watt motor means it can cope with most foods. Really good for chopping and blending. Excellent for soups.
