Q: Is the cord the only part that causes the prop65 warning? The earlier answer did not answer this specifically. Yes the cord causes prop 66 warning, but are there more parts that cause this warning as well?

submitted by Kate - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Kate, The warning in your Use and Care Guide is printed in order for Whirlpool Corporation to be in compliance with California state law. In the State of California there exists what is referred to "Proposition 65." Proposition 65 is the California Safe Drinking and Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986. Any company that operates in California, sells its products in California or manufactures products that may be sold or brought into California is subject to Proposition 65. Since our products are sold in California, Proposition 65 applies to us. Proposition 65 requires warning labels on any product that may contain or produce any of the 600-plus elements that the California Air Resources Board considers carcinogenic or a reproductive toxicant. These elements include lead (contained in the solder used to attach electronic parts to the printed circuit boards), brass, PVC and a multitude of other everyday elements and gas products burn fuels (natural gas or propane) that contain trace levels of chemicals on the list. This list also contains a wide range of naturally occurring and synthetic chemicals, including common household products, foods, drugs, dyes and solvents. Whirlpool is committed to manufacturing safe and high quality appliances, as we always have done. Should any product contain or produce even the slightest amounts of chemicals on the list, even when accepted and regulated concentrations are not exceeded, Whirlpool will liberally warn consumers even though we fully comply with the Act.

This handheld blender is junk. It lasted about 10 minutes before it overheated and shut off. I would have to wait intervals and it could only run for 1 minutes maybe less.

KitchenAid Hand Blender

3 out of 5 stars
Lydia - 26 days ago, Verified purchaser
Blue Velvet is the color I purchased because it was on sale and the color coordinates with my kitchen. I did not expect the blender to be so cumbersome. It is BIG and heavy, perhaps reflecting its well made innards! Having said that, the two times I have used it this far, I am not over the moon impressed. This was supposed to be a replacement for my Cuisinart hand blender I have had for 15 years plus and has been used to the point of needing to be relieved as it is in its tenth inning. I will continue to give the KA more tasks in hopes it will sort itself out.

Not powerful

Albina - 1 month ago
originally posted on kitchenaid.com
I purchased this blender to replace my old one, Kitchenaid , which I loved but the rubber button brock (after 10 years of use is ok). Unfortunately, the new one is not powerful at all. Useless in my kitchen. I don't know if I can return it, but I can't use it. If you do more then milkshake, don't buy.

Disappointed

3 out of 5 stars
HHSC - 1 month ago
originally posted on kitchenaid.com
I have had this blender for about 1 1/2 years. We use it to blend soap so it does not get consistent use. From the beginning it would stop working and if we waited a while it would work again. A safety feature I guess. Over time it stopped working instantly and now it will not blend yogurt. This was a replacement because the first on did the same thing. Maybe it is not made for what I am using it for. Cheap ones seem to work fine but I wanted an upgrade so I purchased this.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received as a Christmas gift, because my other one was over 20 years old and gave out. I am enjoying my new one, just wish there was bag to keep it all together. So I put it in the pocket of my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer cover mate cover.

(This review was collected as part of a promotion.) Although the picture showing does not match the one I have I am loving it. I have the red one that matches the rest of my Kitchenaid appliances I especially love the guard to protect my Teflon Pam’s. I had an old one from a different brand but yours exceeds all that it was able to do.

I love this simple immersion blender! I have a different (more expensive) one that just doesn’t work as well on soups. This one leaves the soups smooth and creamy.

First of all, I didn't realize this wasn't a cordless appliance...that's on me. But honestly, in addition to the cord, it weights a ton! Too heavy. I'll be returning it.

Amazing Product

CM7046 - 2 months ago
originally posted on kitchenaid.com
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is amazing. I got it for my boyfriend for Christmas and he ended up getting it before christmas. He loves to cook and knows how much I hate mushrooms. He used it to fully blend the mushrooms into a pasta sauce so I wouldn’t know they’re in the sauce. After I ate 1/2 the pasta he died laughing telling me how there’s mushrooms in it. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who hates certain foods but can stand it mixed in with other stuff. We also made milkshakes after and it was some of best milkshakes we’ve had in years.

The blender functions well. You must have the blender near an A/C power outlet or use an extension cord; the provided A/C power cord is short. The open "windows" along the metal enclosure around the blade help to flush water through to clean the blade area. It is a good design. To Manufacturers: Please provide a video demonstrating how to pack all the components (including the clear plastic container with lid) back into the box. This will be helpful for those of us who keep the equipment in the original packing box.
