5 of The Best Handheld Immersion Blenders

Immersion blenders – also known as handheld blenders or stick blenders – have been a ‘thing’ for a while now. Their popularity got even more prominent when the Dalgona Coffee was put under the spotlight. Immersion blenders are pretty handy for smoothies, purees, or baby food. Plus, they’re easier to clean and store than regular blenders and food processors.

I searched for the best handheld immersion blenders on Amazon. If you’re looking to do more straightforward work in the kitchen, it’s time you consider getting one. See my list below.

Top Five Handheld Immersion Blenders

The market is packed with hundreds of competing blender models. Therefore, it’s essential to know what features to look for before you decide to buy one, aside from the price. Look for motor power, blade material, speed, and additional attachments.

1. Mueller Austria Ultra-Stick 500 Hand Blender

The Mueller Austria Ultra-Stick 500 Hand Blender is one of Amazon’s best sellers for two good reasons:

  • The price is within the affordable range.
  • It can perform simple to heavy-duty mixing tasks, such as making cocktails, beating eggs, re-blending peanut butter, whipping heavy cream, and making purees.

Pros

  • Speeds: 2-Speed Option with 8 Variable Speeds
  • Varying speed levels allow for different mixture consistencies.
  • Shaft: Detachable
  • Removable shafts are easier to clean compared with those attached to the handheld motor.
  • Blades: S-shaped Stainless-Steel Fixed Blade
  • Stainless steel blades are favoured over plastic ones because they don’t stain, crack, or warp.

Cons

  • Motor: 500 Watts
  • Reviews say that an immersion blender needs at least 200 Watts to be impressively functional. But then, 500 Watts can be considered high consumption compared with other models that do more at 300-400 Watts.
  • Cord: With Cord
  • Power cords can, sometimes, get in the way of kitchen tasks. Plus, other rechargeable and cordless models are now available in the market.
  • Accessories: Egg Whisk, Milk Frother
  • A milk frother and a whisk are good enough if you’re using your handheld immersion blender for simple mixing tasks. But, other models come with more attachments for other food preparation tasks.

2. Zulay Kitchen Milk Boss Electric Milk Frother

Zulay Kitchen’s Electric Milk Frother is the perfect choice for coffee lovers. It’s designed explicitly for foaming drinks. You don’t even need to put it away in the kitchen cabinet—it comes with a stand.

Pros

  • Motor: Battery-operated

You need two AA batteries to power this handheld blender. This can be both an advantage and a disadvantage. While you don’t have to worry about a power cord and a socket, replacing batteries can be costly.

  • Cord: Cordless
  • Accessories: Milk Frother, Metal Stand

A stand and a frother are a pretty good deal for a coffee immersion blender priced below $20.

Cons

  • Speeds: On/Off Switch only
  • Shaft: Fixed
  • Blades: No Blades included

3. AmazonBasics Multi-Speed Immersion Hand Blender

This is probably the most impressive model I found during my search for the best handheld immersion blender – the AmazonBasics Multi-Speed Immersion Hand Blender. It can whip, whisk, froth, and blend food and drinks. The price is affordable. Plus, the best part is the accessory set included in the package.

Pros

  • Motor: 300 Watts
  • Speeds: One-touch on/off and speed functions
  • Shaft: Detachable
  • Accessories: Egg Whisk, Beaker, Chopper
  • Blades: Stainless Steel

Cons

  • Cord: With Cord

4. Braun Multiquick 7 Smart Speed Hand Blender MQ727

Braun’s Multiquick 7 Smart Speed Hand Blender is another excellent model, but it’s on the pricey side. If you want the absolute best, this is the choice for you.

This model boasts of its own set of technological systems:

  • SmartSpeed Technology allows for changing blending power without stopping. You simply need to press the control button harder.
  • SplashControl Technology and PowerBell System on the bell-shaped tip and blades prevent splashing.
  • EasyClick Accessory System allows you to change chopping, blending, mashing, whisking, pureeing, and crushing attachments smoothly.

Pros

  • Motor: 400 Watts
  • Speeds: SmartSpeed Technology for varying speeds
  • Shaft: Detachable
  • Accessories: Egg Whisk, Beaker, Blending Shaft, Masher, 1.5-Cup Chopper
  • Blades: Stainless Steel Blades Inside Bell-shaped Tip (with Splash Control Technology and PowerBell System)

Cons

  • Cord: With Cord

5. Braun MQ505 Multiquick Hand Blender

This is the less expensive alternative to Braun Multiquick 7 Smart Speed Hand Blender. It may not be equally generous when it comes to accessories and speed control, but, based on reviews, it gets the job done.

Pros

  • Motor: 350 Watts
  • Speeds: 2-Speed Control with Turbo Boost
  • Shaft: Detachable
  • Blades: Stainless Steel  Inside Bell-shaped Tip (with PowerBell System)

Cons

  • Cord: With Cord
  • Accessories: Egg Whisk, Blending Shaft, BPA-free cup
