8 Best Immersion Blenders for all Budgets | KitchenGearPro

Blenders: For every kitchen enthu­si­ast, a hand blender (also referred to as a stick or immer­sion blender) is an inte­gral part of cook­ing. Although it is not a sub­sti­tute for a full-size coun­ter­top blender, it may hard­ly offer the pow­er need­ed to process per­fect smooth­ies, crush ice, or blend mix­tures of thick­er consistency.

At the same time, a good hand blender is ide­al for blend­ing soups, puree­ing toma­toes and oth­er veg­eta­bles, mak­ing may­on­naise, mash­ing pota­toes, and prepar­ing baby food.

What Criteria We Used to Selected Best Immersion Blenders

It is not an easy task to select the Best Immer­sion Blender, the same as any oth­er kitchen appli­ance. The «best» is a sub­jec­tive con­cept and has a dif­fer­ent mean­ing for peo­ple with unalike pref­er­ences and bud­gets. Even the result of the expert’s test­ing depends on the lev­el of exper­tise of the tester, per­son­al pref­er­ences, famil­iar­i­ty with gad­gets, and oth­er fac­tors, so it is not always per­fect­ly unbi­ased when the tester is try­ing to present only one of the best immer­sion blender.

To offer you the best Hand blender, we made a list of the gad­gets from dif­fer­ent price cat­e­gories, from basic to medi­um to the pre­mi­um ones. Then, we test­ed dif­fer­ent func­tions they could per­form and pre­sent­ed them with the main para­me­ters such as pow­er, con­trols, and eas­i­ness of oper­a­tion. More­over, we select­ed blenders from rep­utable Immer­sion Blenders man­u­fac­tur­ers only and exclud­ed those that recent­ly appeared on the mar­ket and slapped their logo on a third-par­ty Chi­nese-made hand blender pre­tend­ing to be a trust­wor­thy brand.

So, by the end of the arti­cles, you will have a chance to select the best machines that suits your bud­get and func­tion­al­i­ty requirements.

It is avail­able in two mod­els — the KHB2561 with 8 inch­es blend­ing Shaft and KHB2571 with 8 and 13 inch­es blend­ing Shaft, with all oth­er iden­ti­cal tech­ni­cal para­me­ters and attachments.

Motor and Controls

The KitchenAid 5‑Speed Hand Blender motor body is made of stain­less steel and non-slip rub­ber. The Blender fea­tures 5 vari­able speeds and an On/Off pow­er but­ton. The speed dial is locat­ed on the top of the blender body of blender body while the pow­er but­ton is on the front, so you need to use both hands to oper­ate the blender.

The KitchenAid 5‑Speed KHB2561/ KHB2571 Hand Blender is equipped with 200 watts motor, and despite the fact it has a low wattage, it has excel­lent torque, so it per­forms all the typ­i­cal mid-range hand blender func­tions very well.

Attach­ments and Functionality

The KitchenAid 5‑Speed KHB2561/ KHB2571 Hand Blender is equipped with three attach­ments and three remov­able blades for blend­ing arm acces­sories so that it can per­form a large vari­ety of functions:

  • Blend­ing Arms has an option of 8 (KHB2561 mod­el) and 8+13 inch­es (KHB2571 mod­el) blend­ing arm attach­ment. Both mod­els’ blend­ing arm also comes with three (3) types of remov­able blade (S‑blade, Mul­ti-Pur­pose, Frothier/Beater) com­pat­i­ble, with 8 and 13 inch­es shaft.

Blend­ing Arm attach­ment with S‑blades is designed for mak­ing smooth­ies (with small ice cubes), milk­shakes, blend­ing soups right in the pan, puree­ing pota­toes, cooked veg­gies, mix­ing sauces, dress­ings, and mak­ing baby food; it is also capa­ble of blend­ing a per­fect bul­let­proof coffee.

  • 4 cups/1L Blend­ing Pitch­er when used with Blend­ing Arm, can act as a coun­ter­top blender.

It is also rel­a­tive­ly easy and quick to set up and clean.


The KitchenAid 5‑Speed Hand Blender is our sec­ond-best option. Although it has only a 200 Watts motor, its excel­lent torque, and good qual­i­ty attach­ment can replace many kitchen gad­gets. In addi­tion, it is equipped with a few non-typ­i­cal hand blender acces­sories such as remov­able blades for the blend­ing Shaft, a pan guard to pro­tect cook­ware from scratch­ing, and a blend­ing pitch­er that can trans­fer this hand blender into a coun­ter­top mod­el. Although this Chi­na-man­u­fac­tured gad­get comes with only one year war­ran­ty, the rep­utable KitchenAid brand has out­stand­ing cus­tomer sup­port. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, although the blender is light­weight (2 lb. 2 oz.), you can­not oper­ate it with one hand. Its speed dial is locat­ed on the top of the body while the push but­ton is on the body side, so you have to select the speed using both hands before operating.


#3 Breville BSB510XL Control Grip Immersion Blender 

Breville hand blender easy gripThe Bre­ville BSB510XL Hand Blender is our third option among the mid-range cord­ed Immer­sion blender. This well-built Blender is a very pop­u­lar hand blender mod­el and comes with a few attach­ments choice that per­forms very well in var­i­ous functions.

Motor and Controls

Bre­ville BSB510XL Hand Blender has a super com­fort­able ergonom­ic design with a body con­struct­ed with stain­less steel and soft-touch rub­ber that ensues a sta­ble grasp.

The Blender fea­tures 15 vari­able speeds and an On/Off trig­ger but­ton.  Like the KitchenAid 5‑speed Hand Blender, it has the speed selec­tion con­trol locat­ed on the top and a trig­ger but­ton on the front of the blender body. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, the user can­not ini­ti­ate the gad­get oper­a­tion with one hand only.

Fur­ther­more, the gad­get comes with an excel­lent torque 280-watt motor pow­er. So despite the low pow­er, it is a pow­er­ful hand blender. More­over, the anti-suc­tion design allows easy and effec­tive blending.

Attach­ments and Functionality

The gad­gets come with Blend­ing Shafts, Whisker, Chop­ping Bowl, and extra-large Jug:

  • 8 inch­es long Blend­ing Shaft with s‑blade and no scratch base is a superb tool for blend­ing soups, smooth­ies, milk­shakes, alco­holic and non-alco­holic cock­tails; mix­ing dips, dress­ings, may­on­naise, and sal­sas; puree­ing pota­toes and cooked veg­gies; mak­ing baby food; it is designed to blend small ice cubes in drinks; it also suit­able for pro­cess­ing bul­let­proof coffee;
  • Whisker is intend­ed for whisk­ing egg whites, whipped cream, mix­ing light batters;
  •  Chop­ping Bowl chops onion, gar­lic herbs, veg­eta­bles, shreds cheese, chops nuts, bread crumbs, or chops cooked red meat or fish;
  • 42 ounces Large Jug with lid, han­dle, and mea­sur­ing is designed for blend­ing and stor­ing food; it is espe­cial­ly use­ful because the Blend­ing Shaft bell is too wide and does not fit into the typ­i­cal con­tain­ers and stan­dard Mason jar.


The Bre­ville BSB510XL is the most com­fort­able Hand Blender to grip on the mar­ket with an agro­nom­ic han­dle designed as a gun, so the hand grasps the han­dle in a nat­ur­al posi­tion and pro­vides nat­ur­al sta­bil­i­ty dur­ing the blender usage. It also has excel­lent torque, low suc­tion con­struc­tion, and no scratch blend­ing bell guard. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, sim­i­lar to the KitchenAid blender, it is impos­si­ble to oper­ate this gad­get with one hand; the weight of 3.8 pounds will need a strong hand to man­age. Also, the same as KitchenAid, it comes with a 1‑year warranty.

Premium Immersion Blenders

Pre­mi­um hand blenders are avail­able at the $150 + price. They are bet­ter made than mid-range blendes and per­form func­tions oth­er immer­sion blenders can­not do. They can be run for more than 1 minute with­out stop­ping and per­form heavy tasks.

Attach­ments and Functionality

The G200 Gas­tro Pro‑2 Hand Blender has a unique design; it has a non-remov­able 9.8 inches/25 cm blend­ing stick and a set of four (4) remov­able blades that are con­nect­ed to the blend­ing shaft end. The blades set includes Mul­ti-Pur­pose (chops), Slic­ing (minc­ing meat), Whisk (blends), Beat­er (aer­ates), blades that are designed to per­form the fol­low­ing functions:

  • Mul­ti-Pur­pose Blade can be used for the major­i­ty of tasks such as blend­ing smooth­ies, shakes, or up to 1 gal­lon (5L) of soup; mak­ing bul­let­proof cof­fee, ice slush­es, or pro­cess­ing nut milk; chop­ping raw and cooked veg­gies and fruits; cut­ting cooked meat and fish; crush ice even with­out any liq­uid added; mix baby food, sauces, and thick cake bat­ter; it can eas­i­ly han­dle such thick mix­tures as a frozen dessert;
  • Whisk Blade is ide­al not only for whip­ping cream or eggs but also for blend­ing oily recipes such as sauces, dress­ings, may­on­naise, mash­ing pota­toes and cooked veg­gies, and even mix­ing non-thick dough;
  •  Beat­er Blade is designed for aer­at­ing and beat­ing tasks such as beat­ing up to 0.45 quarts/0.5 L egg-white, cream, meringue, frappes, etc. In addi­tion, this blade is so unique that it can whip even low fat or non-dairy nut of oats creams or cream with fresh lemon added; no oth­er hand blender on the mar­ket is designed for such recipes. Its blade also can dupli­cate the func­tion of all-pur­pose and whisk blades and mix up to 1 gallon/5 L sauces, dips, and dressings.
  • Slic­ing Blade is used for the same recipes as Mul­ti-pur­pose Blades; how­ev­er, it can mince and chop up to 1.1. lbs/500 g of raw meat, fish, and firm veggies;
  • In addi­tion, the Bamix G200 Gas­tro Pro‑2 Hand Blender comes with a Wall Hold­er acces­so­ry that is intend­ed for orga­niz­ing blender and blade storage.

A few addi­tion­al acces­sories are avail­able to buy sep­a­rate­ly for this gad­get that great­ly expands the blender functionality.


The Bamix Gas­tro 200 is an immer­sion blender that pro­fes­sion­al chefs use every day world­wide. So it is undoubt­ed­ly the best machine on the mar­ket with per­for­mance no oth­er blender can show. Apart from the per­for­mance, it is one of the light­est pro­fes­sion­al hand blenders on the mar­ket, weighs only 2.2lbs /1 kg, and is made from food-friend­ly mate­r­i­al from the inside out. In addi­tion, it is a very qui­et hand blender. Final­ly, although it comes with only a one-year war­ran­ty for parts (blades and wall hold­er), it has Life­time Motor Guar­an­tee and will eas­i­ly serve you for over 15–20 years.


#2 Vitamix Immersion Blender 

vitamix immersion blenderAlthough the Vita­mix Immer­sion Blender is not a 100% pro­fes­sion­al hand blender, The Vita-Mix Com­pa­ny knows how to build such gad­gets. Since it has man­u­fac­tured com­mer­cial and home use coun­ter­top blenders for over 100 years, despite the fact it is the first immer­sion blender by Vita-Mix, it can gen­uine­ly com­pete with pro­fes­sion­al machines on the market.

Motor and Controls

Vita­mix Immer­sion blender has an ergonom­ic design with stain­less steel body and rub­ber han­dle. The body fea­tures ON/OFF con­trol, a five (5) vari­able speeds but­ton (from 8500 RPM to 13500 RPM) on the blender body front, and a speed LED dis­play show­ing the speed in use on the top of the body. The gad­get is designed to oper­ate with one hand easily.

The Blender comes with a pow­er­ful 625 Watt motor com­pa­ra­ble with coun­ter­top blenders and can per­form a most com­pre­hen­sive vari­ety of func­tions. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, it has a plas­tic blade to motor dri­ve connection.

Attach­ments and Functionality

Vita­mix Immer­sion Blender comes with only one attach­ment – an 18 inches/22.6cm long stain­less steel Blend­ing Shaft with stan­dard s‑blade and the heat-resis­tant guard bell head guard. The 2.5 inch­es with reduced suc­tion blender bell eas­i­ly fit into the stan­dard Mason jar mouth. So, the attach­ment is designed to per­form the fol­low­ing functions:

Blend­ing smooth­ies and shakes, puree­ing soup right on the stove, mix­ing dips, dress­ings, and sauces, emul­si­fy­ing may­on­naise; whip­ping creams and eggs for omelets; crush­ing ice for slush­es, and even mak­ing frozen desserts; chop­ping nuts, cheese veg­gies, and bread crumbs. Besides, it can eas­i­ly make a bul­let­proof cof­fee or even make nut but­ter (though it will not be the per­fect silky smooth one);

For­tu­nate­ly, a user can buy a set of extra attach­ments such as Whisker, Mini Chop­per, Blend­ing Jar, stor­age case, and stor­age sta­tion sep­a­rate­ly. In addi­tion, the Blender is very easy to set up and clean.


This Blender does not per­form unique func­tions like the Bamix machine and does not have the Bamaix built qual­i­ty from 100% eco-mate­r­i­al. How­ev­er, it is very easy to oper­ate and per­forms typ­i­cal immer­sion blender func­tion much bet­ter than oth­er com­peti­tors on the mar­ket. It is not the light­est one and weighs 2.86 lbs. But, like a typ­i­cal pre­mi­um blender, it is not noisy.

In addi­tion, it comes with a full three (3) years war­ran­ty and best-in-indus­try cus­tomer ser­vice. Unlike­ly that the Vita­mix Immer­sion Blender will have a life expectan­cy as long as Vita­mix coun­ter­top blenders or leg­endary Bamix; how­ev­er, it will serve more than three (3) years with­out a doubt. Although it is the first Vita­mix Blender man­u­fac­tured in Chi­na, it is designed in the USA and fol­lows high Vita­mix stan­dards and quality.


Final Thought

Hence, how to select the best immer­sion blender for you?

You will prob­a­bly buy a bud­get machine if you plan to spend under $80 on a hand blender or do not often cook recipes requir­ing an immer­sion blender. The Braun Mul­ti­Quick 5 Hand Blender is our favorite basic machine. First of all, it is very light, com­fy to hold and oper­ate with one hand, and has 350 watts of pow­er. It also has a three-year war­ran­ty, which is one of the best among basic blenders.

Cuisi­nart CSB-79 Smart Stick 2 Speed Hand Blender is cheap­er than Braun blender. It also has an ergonom­ic design, a safe­ty con­trol but­ton, and a long blend­ing shaft. How­ev­er, it is twice as heavy as its Braun com­peti­tor, and you can­not effi­cient­ly oper­ate it with one hand.

KitchenAid KHBV53 Vari­able Speed Cord­ed Hand Blender is our list’s cheap­est basic blender. It is no won­der it comes with Blend­ing Shaft and whisker only and does not include a chop­per, it is slight­ly lighter than the Cuisi­nart CSB-79 machine but heav­ier than Braun and has only 180 Watt motor com­pared to the Cuisi­nart CSB-79’s 300 Watts motor. You also will not be able to use it with one hand. Nev­er­the­less, this is one of the best immer­sion blenders for low prices.

If you are ready to spend up to $150 on this gad­get and need an excel­lent qual­i­ty machine, you should go for a mid-range immer­sion blender. How­ev­er, the Braun MQ7035X 3‑in‑1 Immer­sion Blender is anoth­er our favorite among the mid-range machines. The same as the basic Braun mod­el, it is a very light and com­fort­able blender designed to oper­ate with one hand. In addi­tion, it has the most pow­er­ful 500 watts motor among the mid-range blenders and can per­form most of the func­tions bet­ter than oth­er sim­i­lar qual­i­ty machines.

The sec­ond-best among the mid-range blender on our list is the KitchenAid KHB2561 and KHB2571 Series 5‑Speed Hand Blender. Although it is heav­ier than Braun and has only a 200 Watts motor, it has the best attach­ments that make this machine gen­uine­ly out­stand­ing. In addi­tion, it has the stan­dard set of acces­sories such as a Blend­ing Shaft, whisker, and chop­per and comes with the blend­ing shaft with a set of remov­able blades that sub­stan­tial­ly expand the machine’s functionality.

Bre­ville BSB510XL Con­trol Grip Immer­sion Blender is also an excel­lent gad­get. How­ev­er, although it is very pop­u­lar with con­sumers, it is infe­ri­or to the oth­er two mid-range on our list. First of all, it is not a light machine (3.8 lbs), and even if it has a 15 vari­able speed, you can­not oper­ate with one hand effi­cient­ly. Any­way, the pop­u­lar, rep­utable man­u­fac­tur­er and good per­for­mance were why we chose it for our list.

How­ev­er, if you want the best immer­sion blender that rep­utable Chefs use around the world and do not spend over $200 for it, you will go for the pre­mi­um immer­sion blender.

The Bamix is the best immer­sion blender on the mar­ket. Although the gad­get motor has only a 200 Watts motor, it has such an out­stand­ing design that it can out­put the 17000RPMs speed, the high­est immer­sion blender speed avail­able. No won­der it can per­form all the func­tions bet­ter than oth­er blenders. It also can pro­duce whip­ping cream from the nut milk and mix lemon into the dairy recipes, so it does not form curds. It is tru­ly a fan­tas­tic blender and per­forms tasks no oth­er blender on the mar­ket can do. Thus, it is bizarre why such rep­utable review­ers as the wire­cut­ter web­site did not include it even in the best immer­sion blender list claim­ing it has infe­ri­or per­for­mance. I use this blender every day and can vow that this is the best machine on the mar­ket. More­over, many pro­fes­sion­al Chefs around the world can attest to the same.

Although The Vita­mix Immer­sion Blender is slight­ly infe­ri­or to the Bamix blender, it is still an excel­lent semi-pro­fes­sion­al blender. It is not as well built as Vita­mix coun­ter­top machines and Bamix blenders. How­ev­er, it comes with a pow­er­ful motor and per­forms all its func­tions to a high degree. It is cheap­er than Bamix, but it comes with only one Blend­ing Shaft attach­ment, and buy­ing extra attach­ments will increase the ini­tial blender price. Any­way, it comes with three years Full war­ran­ty and the best cus­tomer ser­vice in the industry.
