A week ago, Don and I had lunch at Maple in Shangri-La Mall. Coincidentally, there’s a D&K store a few stalls away from where we had lunch. That’s also where I bought my Kenwood Stand Mixer, Riley. So I told Don I wanted to check out something. I showed him the hand blender I wanted. I saw this on sale on a local website, so I asked the salesperson if they will offer the same discount for me. Regular retail price is Php 9,800.00. I will be able to buy this at 30% discount! After all the negotiations, Don told me not to buy it – so I said okay and we left the store. I believe in fate and waiting! God provides at the right time (and the right price!) But I guess Don thought about how much I’d be “losing” in discounts if we didn’t buy it right then and there. This deal won’t be available whenever I decide to buy it. In short, we ended up buying it! Hahaha I had to choose between white or black. The black one looked so bad ass so that’s what I chose!
Everyone, meet Harvey, my new Immersion/Hand Blender. It’s named after Harvey Specter from Suits. 🙂
You know what? Two days before I bought this, I was cooking beer-battered fish for dinner and I had to whisk egg whites for the batter. I was too lazy to get the mixer out of the box (imagine cleaning all those for just egg whites???). So I decided to whip the egg whites by hand… to stiff peaks no less! Both my arms were tired and I wished I had a hand blender then. Didn’t know I will be buying one two days after! Lol
A little back story. I initially wanted Cuisinart’s version. And based on reviews, that would be a better choice. I have been waiting forever for a good deal to get that. I think as of this writing it costs around Php 6,000.00 — more or less. And that just gives you the hand blender and a small food processor… I think.
I have faith in Kenwood since I am very much happy with my mixer. I would never exchange that for a Kitchen Aid. So this hand blender is probably the next best thing! And I only had to pay Php 6,860.o0. Not bad at all.
To break it down, here are the key features:
- Package includes:
- Balloon Whisk
- Food Processor with Knife Blade and Slicing and Grating Disc
- Triblade Blending Attachment (blender)
- Triblade Soup XL Attachment (bigger blender!)
- Recipe Cards
- Stainless Steel Blades
- Variable Speed Plus Turbo Boost Button (5 speeds)
