If you have been looking up for a hand blender, it is impossible that you may have not read a review or recommendation for a KitchenAid blender. Considered among the best in the business, it is also called ‘the diamond’ for its durability. Some of them will remind you of the blenders you grew up with in your kitchen – only these are more stylish and efficient. You can crush ice, puree hot food, blend silky smoothies, chop your veggies and do a lot more with a KitchenAid.
KitchenAid KHB2351CU 3-Speed Hand Blender – Contour Silver
This 3-speed hand blender allows you to choose your speed depending on the ingredients. The tougher cheeses and greens, like Kale and celery, can be given a max speed blend to create a smooth paste. The whisk attachment helps you whip your cream and eggs to fluffy peaks. The chopper works great for giving a good cut to almost anything you put in. But then, because of its compact size, you’ll have to already chop your veggies to size which can then be finely chopped. The BPA free blending jar comes with a lid to make storage easy. The lid is not included in certain models so run a double check on it. The soft-grip handle fits comfortably and makes it easier to hold the blender. The cord, though, at 5 feet is a little smaller than the some of the other ones with similar blenders. The heavy duty metal ensures that it doesn’t get hot even after long periods of blending.
KitchenAid KHB2561CU 5-Speed Hand Blender – Contour Silver
This blender comes with unique 3 interchangeable bell blades that do everything from chopping veggies to crushing ice. If these weren’t enough, there is an additional whisk attachment. The BPA free blending pitcher has a 1L capacity which makes it ideal for a quick blend for the family. The pitcher has a convenient handle and no-splash lid. With 5-speed options, this is quite versatile in what it can deliver. The blending arm is 8” which reaches inside deep pots with ease. The S-blade is ideal for blending, the multi-purpose blade crushes ice and the frother/beater blade froths milk. Most people tend to compare the 5-speed blender to the 3-speed one by KitchenAid to see if one is really better than the other and if the price difference is worth it. While there is no right answer, it will really depend on your blending needs. The 5-speed one words for higher quantities and getting the mix texture just right.
KitchenAid KHB1231WH 2-Speed Hand Blender, White
If you are looking for a blender to just give you a pure blend and only that, the KHB1231 is for you. The 8” blending arm is removable and locks easily into the motor for easy operations. The BPA-free calibrated blending jar can hold 3 cups of liquid although it is better if you max out the quantity at the 2 cup mark. Because it is cordless, you can easily use it elsewhere around your home too, like your gazebo during a party or at your pool bar. For a single appliance without fancy attachments, it pretty much does anything the big blenders do from puree, mash and mix. It has been used and reviewed by professional chefs who recommend it happily.
