Seriously, at what point does the advantage of having a cordless device become negated when the rechargeable battery adds so much bulk that you can barely lift it? Because I think this cordless hand blender has reached that point. Now I’m sure it would make for a handy tool to have around the kitchen, since I know I can’t manually blend at 10,000 revolutions per minute or whip cream at 1,200 RPM, but you better hope you don’t need to perform either of those actions for longer than 25 minutes. Because that’s how long the 7.2V NiMH battery is good for, and it takes about 8-10 hours to recharge it. And while I’m sure the ‘wand’ form factor is convenient when using the whisk or chopping attachment, can someone explain to me how you’re supposed to use the blender with it?
The cordless hand blender, whisk and universal chopper is available from Pro-Idee for about $81. Separated egg not included.
