Immersion Blender

Vitamix upholds their reputation as the best in the blitz biz with their new, stunningly powerful hand blender. Vroom vroom.

Far and away the nicest tool in its class, but still over-engineered. Details like the digital speed control (which automatically resets to the lowest speed every time it's plugged in) and the four-bladed bit (which makes the dome super hard to clean by hand) just don't need to be that way.

On the other hand, the fit and finish are phenomenal and it has arguably the best dome design out of all of them. Combine that with the most power in the category and you get an exceptional piece of kit.

  • So much power.
  • Excellent dome design.
  • Doesn't feel overpriced to me, but still expensive.
  • Two extra blades make it difficult to get large ingredients (or cleaning tools) into the dome.
  • Digital speed controller is annoying to manage.
