Where is the whisk?,
This review is from: Philips Robust Collection HR1379/00 Cordless Rechargeable Hand Blender, 7.2 V (Kitchen & Home)
What a wonderful birthday present ! This blender goes a long way to convince you that all the money goes in a strong motor, long-lasting rechargeable battery and very good professional feel and design. For this amount of money you really feel you are getting the top of the line, a worthy addition to the family kitchen.
But, hey! -my wife said as soon as she opened the box- where is the whisk?
Please could Philips tell us male buyers what technical reason for no-whisk accessory or did someone in your company just forget?
Product returned on the same day.

It's a hand blender and as such they don't have a whisk. You need to buy a hand mixer and not a blender. The two are different tools in the kitchen.

why then all the other hand blenders have a whisk attachment? how do you explain that?

Firstly; why would you assume that a 'blender' would come with a whisk attachment - although whisking and blending share similar motions they are quite different tasks, I would not assume that a screwdriver were capable of providing the same function as a wrench, despite the fact that they are capable of driving threaded parts, that would just be silly. Secondly, what kind of person buys a gift without first thoroughly researching it, if I'm about to splash nearly £200 on an item I'm not just going to make assumptions about its capabilities (oh, and if you don't know what kind of kitchen tools your wife would like, that's a whole different argument)!
People like you bring nothing to discussions like this because they fail to comment on the actual product and simply demonstrate an ignorance of shopping-online (which is that you need to take some responsibility to research an item beforehand, and maybe even go and view it in person, you buy it!).
It's really unfair to rate an item with a single star simply because you didn't read up on a product before you bought it (or perhaps get to know your wife's culinary habits before you married her), hopefully you'll try harder next time.
It's a really good blender, by the way.

Read the product write up or maybe look at the description and photographs!

The whisk is in another box - HR1581.

They are not ideal for whisking. Perhaps the thinking is you are buying premium tools, why add a dubious accessory?
