The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a decent multi-purpose hand blender that's simple to use and easy to clean. It doesn't have any programs or modes, but it still packs enough power to handle more challenging jobs like crushing ice or nuts. Its long shaft allows you to reach the bottom of large pots, and it's safe to use for blending hot ingredients. It can't produce a fine or smooth texture, though, making it less ideal for making smoothies or smooth nut butter. Furthermore, the build quality is rather disappointing, as there are parts that feel loose or cheaply-made. On the upside, it's extremely easy to clean, and it doesn't take up much space in your cupboard.

Our Verdict

7.1 Multi-Purpose

The All-Clad KZ750D is a decent multi-purpose blender. It's better-suited for breaking ingredients down into smaller pieces, like ice crushing, but it can't process the ingredients any further to produce a smooth texture, resulting in smoothies or shakes that are hard to drink. It's safe for blending hot soups, and cleaning is incredibly easy. Unfortunately, the build quality isn't the best.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Safe for hot blending.
  • Good for ice crushing.
Cons
  • Doesn't include jars.
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Can't produce a smooth texture.
6.2 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

The All-Clad KZ750D is mediocre for making smoothies and shakes. It does a good job of breaking down tougher ingredients like ice cubes. However, it can't process the ingredients down to a finer texture, so the resulting smoothie can be difficult to drink if you use fibrous ingredients like kale. The build quality is disappointing, but on the bright side, it's very easy to clean.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good for ice crushing.
Cons
  • Doesn't include jars.
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Can't produce a smooth texture.
7.5 Ice Crushing

The All-Clad KZ750D is good for crushing ice. It can process a large amount of ice in very little time, producing bar-quality ice. Unfortunately, the build quality is sub-par, as some parts feel cheap or loose.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good for ice crushing.
Cons
  • Doesn't include jars.
  • Sub-par build quality.
7.4 Soups

The All-Clad KZ750D is decent for making soups. It's safe to use for hot blending, and the shaft is long enough to reach the bottom of most pots or jars. It should be fine for making purees as long as the ingredients are soft. The resulting texture might not be super smooth, but it should be good enough for most people. Cleaning is effortless, as it only requires running the blender in soapy water for the most part.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Safe for hot blending.
Cons
  • Doesn't include jars.
  • Sub-par build quality.
7.0 Professional Use

The All-Clad KZ750D is decent for professional use. It has enough power to process more challenging ingredients like ice and nuts, but it can't produce a fine texture, so it isn't ideal for making smooth nut butter or smoothies. Sadly, the build quality is disappointing, and it doesn't come with any additional jars.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Safe for hot blending.
  • Good for ice crushing.
Cons
  • Doesn't include jars.
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Can't produce a smooth texture.

The blender has a long shaft, which is great for blending soup in a large pot. In its vertical position, it has a very small footprint and won't take up much space in storage, especially since the shaft is detachable.

Build Quality

The build quality is sub-par. It has a stainless steel body that feels sturdy, but the plastic piece that connects the body and the shaft doesn't feel very durable and is a bit loose. Also, the dial knob's plastic construction feels cheap. For a better-built immersion blender, check out the Braun MultiQuick 5, the Vitamix Immersion Blender, or the Braun MultiQuick 9.

Unprocessed Almonds/Chunks
Yes

This blender is okay for making butter. After seven minutes of blending, the resulting butter still has chunks of almonds that are left unprocessed. It's a little hard to spread and has a crunchy texture. It produces a better-textured almond butter than the GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed hand blender though.

Grainy

The All-Clad KZ750D is sub-par for making smoothies. After two minutes of blending, the texture is still grainy due to the unprocessed kale, and the consistency doesn't change with more blending. The test is conducted with our own beaker, as there isn't one included in the box. If you want an immersion blender that makes good smoothies, check out the KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender.

Cleaning the blender is very easy. Running the blender in a container filled with water and soap for a few seconds should remove most, if not all, food particles, and you can simply wipe the remaining areas with a sponge if there are any food particles left.

Compared To Other Blenders

The All-Clas KZ750D is a decently versatile immersion blender. It can hot blend, and it's good for crushing ice. However, it doesn't feel very durable or well-built, and it struggles to make smooth almond butter or a silky smoothie. It doesn't have a lot of extra features or modes, either.

Vitamix Immersion Blender

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a better blender than the Vitamix Immersion Blender. Unlike the Vitamix, the All-Clad can crush ice, it makes a better almond butter, and it's easier to clean. However, the Vitamix is better-built.

Braun MultiQuick 9

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a better immersion blender for multi-purpose use than the Braun MultiQuick 9. The All-Clad makes a smoother, more spreadable almond butter, and it does a better job crushing ice. However, the Braun is better-built, and it comes with a 20-ounce beaker, unlike the All-Clad.

Bamix Mono M133

The Bamix Mono M133 and the All-Clad KZ750DGT are both decently versatile immersion blenders, and depending on your usage habits, you may prefer one over the other. The Bamix is much more durable and better-built, and it comes with a small jar. However, it isn't as easy to hand-wash as the All-Clad, and it takes a longer time to make almond butter. That said, neither blender can make a very smooth, spreadable almond butter or a very silky smoothie.

Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a more versatile immersion blender than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender. Both blenders struggle to make smooth, spreadable almond butter, but the All-Clad has a better performance. It's also better for crushing ice, and it's easier to clean. That said, the Cuisinart comes with a small jar, which some users may prefer.

KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a better blender than the KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender for mixed-use. The All-Clad makes spreadable almond butter and does a better job of crushing ice. On the other hand, the KitchenAid feels more sturdy and does a better job of incorporating leafy greens like kale into smoothies.

Braun MultiQuick 7

The All-Clad KZ750DGT and the Braun MultiQuick 7 are similarly performing immersion blenders, but the All-Clad is more versatile. The All-Clad can produce slightly better almond butter and smoothies. It can also make bar-quality crushed ice. However, the Braun's blade assemblies can go into the dishwasher, and it also comes with several tools and attachments like a whisking attachment to help you out in the kitchen. The Braun also feels significantly better built.

Cuisinart EvolutionX RHB-100

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a better multi-purpose blender than the Cuisinart EvolutionX RHB-100. The All-Clad makes better almond butter and bar-quality crushed ice. It also has a dial that you can use to adjust the blending speed. On the other hand, the Cuisinart does a better job of processing leafy greens like kale and produces better smoothies. Some users may also prefer that it's cordless.

Vitamix 5200

The Vitamix 5200 is much better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT. The Vitamix has a much more powerful motor, a better build quality, and is significantly better at processing small particles to produce a smoother texture. However, the All-Clad is a lot easier to clean.

GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a better immersion blender for multipurpose use than the GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed. The All-Clad is easier to clean and can make more spreadable almond butter, as well as bar-quality crushed ice. However, the GE Appliances makes a smoothie with a significantly better texture.

Braun MultiQuick 5

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is a better, more versatile immersion blender than the Braun MultiQuick 5. While the Braun is better-built, it can't crush ice, unlike the All-Clad. The All-Clad also makes a more spreadable almond butter. That said, the Braun comes with a small personal jar, which some users may prefer.
