Hence your hand grasps the han­dle part in a nat­ur­al posi­tion and ensures your total con­trol and sta­bil­i­ty dur­ing the blender oper­a­tion. The grip part of the Motor Unit fea­tures a soft-touch mate­r­i­al that reduces slip­ping and pro­vides even more com­fort to the user.

Besides, the Motor Unit hous­es a pow­er­ful 280 watt motor with excel­lent torque. The blender is designed for a max­i­mum of one (1) minute of con­tin­u­ous run after it should rest for 1 minute before you run it again.

Attachments and Accessories

Blender shaft – is a core attach­ment of any immer­sion blender. This Bre­ville hand blender comes with a stain­less steel 8 inch­es long blender shaft. Due to the good length, it can be used with deep and shal­low con­tain­ers. The shaft bell also has an inno­v­a­tive designed and equipped with two inter­nal ribs that ensure a per­fect vor­tex, min­i­mum splash­ing, and splat­ter for the most effi­cient blend­ing process and min­i­mum suc­tion to the pot bottom.

The Beeville shaft has a spe­cial rub­ber base around the bell shaft pots that pre­vents the pots from scratching.

Whisk Attach­ment – it comes in two parts the whisk and gear­box, the assem­bled gear­box and whisk attach­ment is 8 inch­es long, the same as the blend­ing shaft length. 

Chop­ping Bowl – com­prise of 25 oz./3 cup BPA-free poly­car­bon­ate chop­ping bowl, stain­less steel chop­ping blades, and chop­per lid with the gearbox.

Extra Large Jug — the 42 oz. Extra-large BPA-free plas­tic jug is nice­ly designed and comes with the han­dle, lid that not only serves its direct pur­pose and cov­ers the con­tain­er for stor­ing food but also turns into the slip-proof pad to pro­tect the jug from mov­ing when it is in use.

The jug also has a dual usage – you can use it as a con­tain­er for any blend­ing tasks, and you can stack the chop­ping bowl into it dur­ing the food pro­cess­ing, so you may use its han­dle to secure the chop­per bowl while the non-slip lid will ensure the chop­per bowl extra sta­bil­i­ty. The stack­able con­tain­ers are also great for sav­ing the stor­age space in your cupboard.
