Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender

In many ways, this is the quintessential hand blender. Despite all the flashy colors it comes in, this is very much a minimalist blender design.

This was my first hand blender and while it's not the best, it's good enough for most jobs and it avoids adding unnecessary bullshit for its own sake which I find quite admirable.

Sure, it's not the most powerful, but it doesn't really need to be — it'll still get the job done.

    Smash
  • Simple, but effective.
  • Variable trigger is very convenient for just using top speed and avoiding configuration.
    Pass
  • Not very powerful.
  • Cheap bit design. Clip-on scratch guard just feels lazy.
