Excellent, easy to use product with loads of features.
Hand grip is a little large for my hand but is working great.
Not much to say except it is a great blender. Strong and powerful, easy to use. In a home environment 280w blender is more than enough, no slowness and it’s blending everything what we throw under the blades.

Comments from buyers
, Good blender, but read the caveats first!
, Nice and sturdy with a no scratch bottom!
We haven’t used our blender or food processor since we bought this. We use it several times a week, works greats and is sooo much easier to clean than the blender–.
The blade section comes off for easier cleaning – a real chore on my last blender. I make a lot of soups and the lower speed works well to blend without pulverizing. And if you need something more blended, the higher speed works well. This is a small thing, but i really love the plug, which has a little hole in it — this lets you pull the plug so easily without yanking on the cord. I wish every appliance i have used this plug. The grip is nice and the blender is well balanced in my hand and it will stand up in a pan without tipping over, if i need to stop blending and reach for something. The attachments are very useful, also. I looked at a lot of blenders before deciding to try this one and i’m very pleased with my choice.
Someone posted a review on youtube about this immersion blender and how easy it was to use. That may be but if you have weak hands or arthritis in your hands, you will find it difficult to separate the body from the blade shaft. I returned it and got a cuisinart immersion blender. It only has one button to push to remove the blade assembly and is much easier to use. Sorry breville, these old hands need easy. The other design attributes – handle and plastic around the bottom of the blade assembly are nice touches. If you have strong hands, you’ll probably like this one.
This has been used a lot for the last month or so. I can reach for it instead of our vitamix-knockoff and the clean-up is easy. I appreciate the higher wattage and the adjustable speed. Well made and the pieces and parts are fine.
Got this blender for my lady and she totally loves it. Although the applications are limited for this kitchen tool, the tool is extremely useful. We used it to make a pineapple puree for a desert. I would totally recommend this product for the novice to expert kitchen foodie.
We use the chopper function most to speed through prep of garlic, ginger, onions, nuts, spices, tomato dicing, etc. Using speed control for less or more fineness in chop. Takes seconds and replaces graters, hand dicing. Throw each item into holder cup to keep counter clean. The ingenious wavy top goes on in seconds and off, and on and off so easily. The designed handle works great for my spouse with parkinson’s and grip difficulties. Immersion blender used mostly for quick smoothies.
I’ve used this for soups and to chop. The blade doesn’t contact or scratch my pans.
After killing my braun stick blender by running it longer than 1 minute continuously, (ahem), i decided to upgrade a bit. I couldn’t be happier – an extra $30 bought a highly superior model with two blending containers, solid constuction, super easy to use, with two blending speeds. Performs much better than the braun. Note to self: you cannot run any of these stick blenders continuously longer than 1 minute.
I am very happy with the breville immersion blender. This replaces my disappointing, broken, seldom used cuisinart mini chopper and almost-run-into-the-ground magic bullet. I use this blender almost every day for a smoothie or milkshake style protein shake. I did try chopping some sweet peppers in it. Next time i won’t put it on ‘high’ for that. I have no complaints at all with this product. I hope you get one, too, and enjoy it.
I use this product a lot in my kitchen for soups and chopping. I like the blending canisters (two) which come free with the product. I would have rated it 5 stars except this it is hard to detach the wand from the power bass.
I bought this 2 years ago and have been happy with it. Here are some thoughts:pros:- works very well when blending foods in a pot (eg. Soups)- make smoothies well- very versatile. It’s really not only 2-speeds (high and low). If you adjust the dial midway, it will adjust accordingly to a speed in the middlecons:- when i received it, there were black marks and scratches on a few of the pieces. I exchanged for a new one, the new one came with similar issues. It’s not a a cheap priced immersion blender, so it shouldn’t come with dings and marks on it. – does not work too well with ice, just tends to throw it around whenever it makes contact with the blade- sometimes when making smoothies and filling 3/4 of the container, starting on the high setting will make content flow out the top even though you’re pressing down to avoid this.
I had this for over a year and it is great. It’s working great and, the accessories are very helpful. I am using it every day and i am very satisfied.
Comfortable to use, does what it’s supposed to do. Seems well made and practical. I plan on using it frequently.
Works well, but wish it was longer to use in big pots.
Your only as good as your tools.
The immersion blender works great. The ‘food processor’ attachment is only okay. You can’t put too much in or else it will squirt out of the top and make a huge mess. It isn’t great when making salsa for this reason.Most of it ends up on the counter. I have a system worked out at this point.
After looking at several brands, lots of models, and scads of reviews, i decided to take the leap and order this immersion blender. I’m usually tempted to buy the most expensive version of a product, but this time decided that having stainless steel and more blender speed options just wasn’t important enough to justify additional cost. I knew i wanted a container for blending and storing, and the fact that this model came with a chopper attachment was an added bonus. And from what i gathered from my research, the plastic used is bpa free. (i could be wrong about this, but what i read indicated that this is the case. I’m totally happy with my purchase, and i’m known to be extremely picky. I have a vitamix blender that i love, but the breville bsb400xl makes blending soups in the pot so much easier. It’s also perfect for blending one-serving smoothies when i don’t feel like messing with the vitamix. It’s the perfect size, easy to use, and super easy to clean.
Love the extra length and power. Only difficulty is removing the blender from the wand – perhaps it will loosen up a little with use. Takes two strong fingers, which i don’t have. Would not hesitate to buy again or as a gift.
Just received this blender, and i love it. So far i have chopped onions in the chopper (it did a great job), and made a tomato puree and smoothies with frozen fruit. I am very happy with my purchase.
Works great fast friendly service and product looks like it will last longer then most immersion blenders that i have gotten in the past.
We needed a new immersion blender (mostly for protein shakes) and i love my breville espresso machine, so we thought we’d give them a chance on the blender. Overall (and so far) a very good product. Only complaint we have is the mixing pitcher. But the markings are unhelpful. Clearly someone who is used to the metric system (‘check out the big brain on bret’) created this pitcher. It has both ml and oz but the ounces are marked 10-15-20-25 etc. I have a hard time believing a company that has sold kitchen products this long in the us simply overlooked the fact that nothing in the us standard measuring system goes by fives or tens.
