Room for improvement
Works great, easy to use, variable speed and can't wait to try the Mashed Spud attachment. Powerful yet quiet, well built and feels like it will last a long time.
However, the stainless steel blender shaft and foot, scratch the surface of whatever item your blender may be used in, I didn't think of it at the time but a tough plastic foot on the blender shaft would have been a better choice for household use. AND the power cord is stiff way too short, you virtually have to be working right in front of the power outlet to use the item unless without having to attached a power extension cord.
Really bad design flaw there. For the money, it's not too bad, but room for improvement.
Waste of money
Had it for about a month. The inside of the hand-held stick melted. Yes, melted while making a smoothie. I thought it broke but it actually meIted! had a Braun for 12 yrs previously and it lasted. I will be taking it back for a refund when restrictions ease.
Purchased in July 2020 at The Good Guys for $70.00.
Good blender but the chopper needs improvement
I have bought several stick blenders with attachments and i have found the choppers all seem to break down. I find them great for cheese or carrots without bringing out the big food processor. The middle blade is now very hard to align with the lid, as it does not stay in place whilst putting the lid on the container.
Was great while it lasted (not long though)
I had this unit for about 18 months and it was great but then the power stick died. I would have thought that it would last a little longer than warranty but it died. I contacted Kambrook and was asked for the receipt which I no longer have .... after a number of emails back and forth I was asked for serial number but could not find any .... sent them pictures ... was then told that they no longer had this model and because I couldn't produce a serial that they could not help but offered me a 40% discount on another item, which I though was great so I took advantage of the offer. The new item finally arrived ... No thanks the AUSTPOST ... more cost less service.
- X Blade KSB100
Poor quality motor shaft
I bought this machine in January 2015. It has only been used about once each month without any issues until today when it stopped working.
A poor quality plastic piece on the shaft broke off making the whole machine totally useless. (I was using the stick mixer to blend a cake batter so it wasn't needing to work hard and it stopped almost immediately when I started it.) Very disappointing considering the machine has barely had any use and is in immaculate condition.
Great Motor, Terrible construction of Drive shaft
We have had this for about 6 or 7 months I think and as yet have not had the problems others have mentioned with the connection but have a Major Major issue with the shaft for the cutting blade on the mini food processor. It traps food inside it. It's disgusting. We tried to ignore it for a while but now it is a major health issue and means we can't use this part of the product. I haven't contacted customer service yet as I'm reluctant to fork out more money to replace a part that is in my opinion faulty. Granted this is not an expensive o...r top of the line product, but to have it fail so quickly and then need to replace parts starts to make it not worth it. EDIT: I contacted the kambrook (breville) customer service team and have had the faulty part replaced. The customer service team were quick to respond and extremely helpful. Thank You to the customer service team for making what could have been a bad experience a positive one :) 11/05/17
Coleslaw Chopper, Potato Masher
The bag of coleslaw at Woolworths containing mostly cabbage and red onion are finely cut-processed in Kambrook's plastic bowl at low speed about 3.5 at 2-second intervals using turbo button, while lifting the bowl and holding it in one hand and holding the stick mixer in the other hand, so that you can shake and properly process all the contents. Mince beef really sticks out and absorbs all the flavor without too much salt and sugar when I add 250g of Dolmio Pasta Sauce with 500g of mince beef, just when the cabbage coleslaw is finely processed...and looking totally invisible as it blends into the saucy mince beef when added in the fry pan. Although the Kambrook set has a stainless steel blender and masher for mashed potatoes, the most common out of the 3 mixer types is the food processor, especially hard-to-digest vegetables like cabbage and red onion as coleslaw is my favorite vegetable salad mix that goes quite well with mince beef, and also avoiding stomach cramp-like aches if vegetables are finely processed. Kitchen sink hole must be plugged if you drop the white screw while detaching the blade from the masher, you wouldnt want to buy another set unless you are rich enough to do so. The masher for mashing potatoes is quick and easy as I usually pressure-cook them in 8 minutes, once cooked then mash them while hot and moist. New white model: KSB100WHT bought in July 2016.
I've had one for just over a year now. I use it 3 mornings a week to make smoothies and every so often at night to blend soups (and sometimes cocktails).
Works as well as the day I bought it, does a quick job and is easy to clean.
I can't believe that this appliance that I have used for barely a minute has stopped working I will be taking it back to Target tomorrow for a refund, if you are considering purchasing a stick blender don't buy this one
1 month old, already broken
this was a housewarming gift to us so we don't have a receipt, feel bad as its good for the bin and only 1 month old. the plastic drive gear in the handle has melted so none of the attachments will work. only ever used it once a day max as it was just for smoothies in the morning. not happy!
Very disappointed. disfunctional product
Purchased this about 2-3 months ago. Came with one button missin on the motor head so unable to detach stick feom the lid. Dont have a receipt as it was a wedding gift. Noe I have to keep it assembled on my benchtop constantly!
Questions & Answers
Can it dice tomatoes or is it too powerful and will turn them to mush?
i think it would turn into mush
Bummer. I have problems with my hands, but at least it’ll save them with its other uses. Thank you
Depends on how firm the tomatoes are ... if they are ripe/over ripe .... yes mush ... but if firmer I would asume they would be fine ........ BUT DON'T QUOTE ME
Can you add liquids without taking the lid off?
Hi Naomi, yes you can, the processing bowl lid has a food chute with food pusher that can be removed to add liquids to the bowl without removing the lid. Thanks, the Kambrook team.
I have just recently bought a KSB 100 it takes forever to whip cream and virtually stalls when blending a batter mixture. Is this normal or is there problem with the particular stick blender that I have?
Hi Wendy, please contact the Kambrook customer care team on 1300 139 798 during business hours or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
