The All-Clad KZ750DGT is an immersion blender with a long blending arm for processing hot ingredients directly in a pot or pan. This no-frills blender doesn't come with any extra accessories like a beaker for blending or a whisk, but it's versatile, partly because its wider blade guard can fit bigger ingredients like ice cubes.

Our Verdict

6.8 Multi-Purpose

The All-Clad KZ750D is okay for multi-purpose use. It's meant for processing hot ingredients directly in a pot or pan and does a good job of pureeing fibrous ingredients, helping it make smooth soups and smoothies. You can use it for the occasional batch of nut butter, and it's not bad at ice crushing for an immersion blender. It's also easy to clean by hand. However, it doesn't come with a beaker, isn't dishwasher-safe, and doesn't feel sturdy.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Hot blends.
  • Good for ice crushing.
  • Decent for blending fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Doesn't include a beaker.
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Loud.
6.5 Smoothies (Single Serving)

The All-Clad KZ750D is okay for single-serve smoothies. Although it takes a few minutes to blend a single smoothie, it does a good job of blending fibrous elements like leafy greens or blueberries into a smooth puree. It's able to incorporate ice cubes into the mix as well. However, unlike some immersion blenders, it doesn't come with a beaker you can use for blending. Its design doesn't feel durable, and it's loud.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good for ice crushing.
  • Decent for blending fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Doesn't include a beaker.
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Loud.
7.4 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)

It's decent for multiple servings of smoothies. Since it's an immersion blender, you can blend in your own pitcher, which allows you to prepare big batches. It takes a while to process stubborn elements like leafy greens and fruit skin but produces a well-blended puree. It's not well-suited for crushing ice but can handle ice cubes in a smoothie recipe. However, it doesn't have a good build quality.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Decent for blending fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Doesn't include a beaker.
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Loud.
5.8 Ice Crushing

The All-Clad KZ750D isn't ideal for crushing ice, like most immersion blenders. However, it's more capable of crushing ice than many others. Its blade guard is wide enough to let ice cubes reach the blades with no issue. It can make small batches of crushed ice or incorporate ice cubes into recipes like smoothies and protein shakes.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Good for ice crushing.
  • Decent for blending fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Loud.
9.1 Soups

The All-Clad KZ750D is fantastic for making soups. Since it's a hand blender, it's meant for processing hot ingredients directly in a pot or pan. It does a good job of processing fibrous vegetables, so recipes like pureed broccoli soup turn out smooth. However, it takes several minutes of blending to get the best results, like most immersion blenders. It's also not very well-built. Its blending arm is not dishwasher-safe, but on the plus side, it's very easy to clean by hand.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Hot blends.
  • Decent for blending fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Loud.
7.3 Professional Use

The All-Clad KZ750D is decent for professional use. It does a good job of processing fibrous ingredients, which is important for well-blended soups and smoothies. It can do an adequate job of making nut butter, although it's not the easiest to use for that purpose, like most immersion blenders. However, it's loud when running, so the noise is irritating if you're blending for several minutes. It's also not very sturdy, which is a big downside if you need a blender for daily use.

Pros
  • Easy to clean.
  • Hot blends.
  • Good for ice crushing.
  • Decent for blending fibrous ingredients.
Cons
  • Sub-par build quality.
  • Loud.
  • 6.8 Multi-Purpose
  • 6.5 Smoothies (Single Serving)
  • 7.4 Smoothies (Multiple Servings)
  • 5.8 Ice Crushing

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The All-Clad KZ750D only comes in one variant, 'Stainless Steel'. If you come across another variant, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Blenders

The All-Clad KZ750D is a simple immersion blender. It doesn't come with a beaker or accessories like a whisk, unlike blenders like the Braun MultiQuick 5. It's good for processing fibrous ingredients in recipes like soups, sauces, and smoothies. For an immersion blender, it does a solid job with difficult blends like nut butter and ice crushing. However, it doesn't feel sturdy, and it's very loud. Blenders like the Ninja Foodi Power Mixer System and the Breville Control Grip are sturdier and perform similarly.

If you're looking for other options, check out the best immersion blenders, the best blenders, and the best budget blenders.

Breville Control Grip

The Breville Control Grip is better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT. The Breville is much sturdier and quieter when it's running. It comes with accessories like a beaker and whisk, and it's also easier to use for tough blends like nut butter and ice crushing. However, the All-Clad can make a smoother blend with bigger batches of fibrous ingredients, so it's more suitable for pureeing soups with leafy greens or broccoli in a deep pot. 

Braun MultiQuick 7

The Braun MultiQuick 7 is better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT for most purposes. The Braun is much sturdier, quieter, and comes with accessories like a whisk, beaker, and food processing bowl. On the other hand, while the All-Clad isn't well-built, it makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale or broccoli.

Braun MultiQuick 5

The Braun MultiQuick 5 and the All-Clad KZ750DGT have different strengths. The All-Clad has a better blending performance, since it can produce smoother smoothies and soups, takes less time to make nut butter, and manages to crush ice. However, it's not well-built and it's very loud. The Braun is much sturdier, quieter, and still makes a fairly smooth blend with fibrous fruits and vegetables. It also comes with a beaker and whisk attachment, unlike the All-Clad. 

Vitamix Immersion Blender

The Vitamix Immersion Blender is a bit better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT. The Vitamix has a significantly better-built quality, and it's quieter when it's running. The All-Clad isn't well-built but makes a smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like kale.

Cuisinart EvolutionX RHB-100

The All-Clad KZ750DGT has a better overall blending performance than the Cuisinart EvolutionX RHB-100, but the Cuisinart is battery-powered, so you're free to move around your kitchen with it. It also comes with a beaker and a whisk you can use for blending. 

KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender

The KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender is a little better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT. It's sturdier, quieter, and comes with a beaker you can use for blending. However, the All-Clad makes a smoother blend with big batches of fibrous ingredients, so it can make a silkier soup if you're blending in a deep pot. 

Ninja Foodi Power Mixer System

The Ninja Foodi Power Mixer System is better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT. It's much sturdier, comes with a jar you can use for blending, and does a better job processing fibrous ingredients. It's also more versatile thanks to its beater and whisk attachments.

Bamix Mono M133

The Bamix Mono M133 and the All-Clad KZ750DGT have different strengths. The All-Clad makes a smoother blend with fibrous fruits and vegetables, which is important for silky soups and smoothies. Its detachable blending arm makes it easier to clean by hand. However, it's not very well-built, and the Bamix is much sturdier and quieter when it's running. It also comes with whisk and beater attachments for making sauces like hollandaise or mixing cake batter. 

NutriBullet Immersion Blender

The NutriBullet Immersion Blender is better than the All-Clad KZ750DGT for most purposes. The NutriBullet is significantly better built and much quieter. It also comes with a whisk attachment. The All-Clad can make a smoother puree with ingredients like kale, meaning you may prefer it for recipes like smoothies.

Cuisinart Smart Stick Cordless Hand Blender

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is better than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Cordless Hand Blender. The All-Clad is better for processing fibrous ingredients like leafy greens into a smooth puree. It also does a better job with tough tasks like making nut butter. However, the Cuisinart has a better build quality, and it's much quieter. You might also like its cordless design.

GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is better than the GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed. The All-Clad is better for making recipes like pureed soup, since it makes a much smoother blend with fibrous ingredients like broccoli. On the other hand, the GE is quieter when it's running and quite a bit lighter. 

Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is better than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender. The All-Clad makes a smoother blend with bigger batches of fibrous ingredients and is more capable of tough tasks like making nut butter or crushing ice. It has a much wider range of speed settings. On the other hand, the Cuisinart is much lighter, so it's less tiring to hold into for a few minutes of blending. It makes a silkier blend with smaller batches of ingredients like kale or blueberries and also comes with a beaker, so it's a little better for single-serve smoothies.

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.

KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender

The KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender and the All-Clad KZ750DGT have different strengths. The All-Clad makes a smoother blend with stubborn ingredients like kale and broccoli, so it's better for recipes like soups and smoothies. However, the KitchenAid is sturdier, quieter, and more versatile, since it comes with a variety of accessories, including a food processing bowl and a blade assembly for frothing milk or mixing batter.

Bamix The Original

The Bamix The Original and the All-Clad KZ750DGT have different strengths. The Bamix is a much sturdier, better-built immersion blender, and it's quieter when it's running. The All-Clad doesn't feel nearly as sturdy, but it can produce better-blended soups and smoothies. It's also more able to process thick mixtures like nut butter, and since its blending arm is detachable, it's easier to clean by hand.

The blender has a long shaft, great for blending soup in a tall 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. However, it's on the heavy side for an immersion blender, making it more tiring to hold onto.

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.

It's decent for small batches of fibrous ingredients. Although you need to hold the blender for the whole process, it doesn't take an overly long time to blend something like a single-serve smoothie or a small portion of soup. There are small grains left over in the final mix, but it does a better job than most immersion blenders we've tested.

It's decent for processing big batches of fibrous ingredients.

The All-Clad KZ750D isn't well-suited for crushing ice, but it does a better job than most immersion blenders we've tested. The blade guard is wide enough to let ice cubes easily reach the blades. For the best results, you need to move the blending arm up and down and angle it to process as many ice cubes as possible. It's not suitable for big batches of crushed ice, but it's not bad if you want ice for a couple of cocktails or like to add a few ice cubes to your smoothies.

This blender is okay for making nut butter. It has a more powerful motor than most immersion blenders we've tested, and it can make nut butter faster than models like the Braun MultiQuick 9. It makes mostly smooth nut butter with just a few unprocessed chunks left over. Since it's an immersion blender, it's not ideal for thicker recipes like nut butter since they take several minutes of blending, and you need to hold onto the blender constantly.

The All-Clad KZ750DGT is loud for an immersion blender. If you're making something that needs more than a minute or two of blending, the noise will get irritating pretty quickly. The Braun MultiQuick 9 is only a little less powerful but much quieter when it's running.

There are two buttons on the motor body: a 'Power' button for regular blending and a 'Turbo' button for when you want extra speed. You need to hold down one of the buttons constantly to blend. When using the regular 'Power' mode, you can use the dial on top of the motor body to adjust the speed.

Ease Of Use
Cleaning

Cleaning the blender is very easy. Running the blender in a container filled with water and soap removes a lot of sticky residue from the blades and blending arm. You still need to scrub the blades with a brush, but there aren't any difficult-to-reach parts, so it's a very quick and easy process.
