I purchased this the Stickmaster as a replacement for an older stick blender, and was looking for one without extra accessories, this being the only stick blender fitting that description. It has the obligatory jug, only.
Having used it for 3 weeks, for smoothies, I cannot comment on the longevity of the motor, however I am very happy with the product, It works well, and, with no crevices to collect food, it's a dream to clean and I really like the click/twist action to detach from the motor section. I'm yet to use it for soups or dips.
Purchased in January 2019.
Perfect for making smoothies
This powerful motor is perfect for making morning smoothies or evening cocktails. Although it's questionable when attempting to make Hummus. Its able to crush ice and if making a batch of pumpkin soup its great to for pureeing with. Making baby food has been a breeze with this.
Sparked and no longer works.
The first time I used it, there was so much noise and vibration. I sprayed WD40 into the stick part, to lubricate the bearings, and it improved.
The base with the blades has a much smaller intake area than my previous (a 23 year old Bamix) stick blender, which I found awkward for trying to get a soup evenly blended.
I had used it once a week, for less than two months, before there was a spark and it died.
I do not recommend this product.

This was fine the first few times I used it. The turbo feature was a bit too much vibration but it certainly blended my pumpkin soups very well - and made batter for pancakes perfect and fluffy! Then it decided to spark internally after I pressed the button a few times quickly in a row. There was a sharp electric blue glow in the motor region and the handle felt immediately warm. I thought maybe it just overheated or something so stopped using it. I foolishly thought I'd be brave and try it again another day but it sparked almost straight away,...this time while using the masher attachment. Definitely a motor problem. So now I am never going to use it again as I don't want to be electrocuted. The last handheld mixer I had was a Kambrook one from a couple of years back. I do wonder what the life of the next handheld mixer I get is going to be as the Kambrook one also started sparking after some time, but that was after a year or two, not after a few uses! And I still have the receipt. For some reason it's still on my desk, I haven't thrown it out, how odd. Guess I'll be taking it back to the poor store guy. Maybe I'll get a Braun next time, they seem to have good reviews...
Do Not Buy
Very disappointing product. Used twice to whip cream and blend cake mix. Motor then died. Had followed instructions - a total waste of money. Back to Bamix I go, as my last one went for 27 years
Questions & Answers
Almost everyday for the last 6 weeks or so, I have used my 7200 stickmaster to make smoothies with lite milk and 2 frozen bananas, and 2 frozen strawberries. Sometimes I have made iced coffee with ice cream. But only when I use frozen strawberries/bananas, (for the last week or so) it has started to make a sort of screeching sound. Is this just the noise of the crushing frozen strawberries, or is it the motor starting to go? I've only had it a few months. Judy
Many other reviewers have complained that the motor does not last, but - as I only used mine for a few weeks - I cannot answer from personal experience. (I found it too powerful and did not like the type of guard)
Hi Gra gra,
I have just sent you a private message if you could kindly respond via that please.
Can I purchase the blade attachment by itself.
The motors are fine but the blades seize up rather quickly.
I use it in my small home business.
I checked online and yes, you can purchase the attachments separately.
