Whether you’re making soups, sauces, puddings or any number of other dishes, an immersion blender is an essential part of your culinary toolkit. No well-equipped kitchen is complete without one! The best immersion hand blenders help you achieve perfect consistency, right in the pot! They help you blend, crush, puree, and smooth all sorts of concoctions without making a mess or damaging your cookware.
Sadly, a lot of immersion blenders aren’t up to the challenge of helping without harming. They splatter food everywhere, or glom onto the bottoms of your pots so that you have to stop what you’re doing and try and prevent total chaos. Even some of the most expensive models scratch nice cookware, too.
Don’t worry! For this guide, we’ve asked our kitchen expert, Amanda Tucker, to go on a quest to find the absolute best immersion hand blenders on the market. She’s weeded through dozens of brands and models to find the most powerful, reliable, and ergonomic options available today.
You’ll find all Amber’s recommendations below, along with some helpful advice on choosing the best hand blender for your kitchen!
Best Immersion Hand Blender Reviews (2018)
Now that you’ve taken a closer look at all our recommendations, which of these immersion hand blenders should you buy?
The KitchenAid is the clear winner if you’re on a tight budget. It’s simple, effective, and affordable. It’s not nearly as versatile as our other picks, though. It’s also not likely to last as long as the Breville or the Bamix in particular.
The Breville is our recommendation to the average buyer. It’s a lot sturdier and stronger than the KitchenAid, without getting too close to the Bamix’s premium price tier. It’s more user-friendly than budget models and gets the job done more quickly. This is actually the most powerful of the three, so get this if you’re after sheer oomph! The Breville isn’t as rock-solid as the Bamix, though.
If you’re a daily cook who’s passionate about food, we recommend you get the Bamix. It’s the priciest of the bunch and not as brawny as the Breville, but it’s still the best immersion blender we’ve reviewed to date. It has outstanding reliability, the design is both user-friendly and efficient, and it’s the most pleasant to use. Just don’t get it if you’re not absolutely sure you’ll get your money’s worth.
