“How do I choose the best hand blender for Me?”
Most of us have had the experience of buying something that didn’t do exactly what we needed it to, so, there are some important questions to answer about the hand blender we’re considering before deciding to buy.
Questions like . . .
“What is the main task I’ve got in mind for this hand blender?”
“Is it powerful enough to handle the task?”
“How reliable are the attachments?”
“Does it come with a warranty?” And . . .
“what do people who have already bought this hand blender have to say about it?”
Taking these factors into consideration beforehand will ensure that when your hand blender is delivered and you use it for the first time you’ll be impressed, pleased, and inspired to try new recipes. Instead of feeling disappointed and realising you’ve bought an inferior model.
Because you don’t have the time to investigate this for hours on end we’ve laid out the most important questions you can ask about any model, and, even having a quick look over them will help you to choose the best hand blender for your needs.
What will I be using it for the most ?
This is important to consider, if you only need it to perform basic blending of smoothies and soups then it doesn’t need to be ultra powerful, or include a wide array of attachments.
However, if you’re a keen amateur chef and you’ve got a bit more in mind than simple blending, it makes sense to pick one that can handle the tasks you have in store, and one that comes with better attachments.
Is it up to the job ?
This is a power and design question, and it’s easy to answer, many hand blenders list how powerful their motor is in the title, like the “Andrew James powerful 700 watt hand blender” for example.
Any hand blender that has 600 watts or more [with a decent chopping bowl and blending attachment] will easily manage any job. As for finding out whether a hand blender is well designed or not, you’ll find this information in the detailed reviews on our site, and from what other customers have said at Amazon UK.
How good are the attachments ?
This is vital to resolve before you buy, as some hand blenders come with the most basic [and cheaply made] attachments, while others in the same price range come with excellent well designed attachments.
How long is the power lead ?
An obvious but sometimes over looked question about the model you’re going to choose, there’s no point in getting an awesomely designed model that doesn’t even reach your food preparation area.
Does this model have a comfortable handle ?
Selecting a hand blender with a powerful enough motor (600 watts or above) will make this question less important than some previous ones, because you won’t need to hold it for as long a time.
But it’s still preferable to choose a model with a well molded and comfortable hand grip section, you can find this out through any of our reviews, or by typing the product name into Google Images and having a close up look for yourself.
How much does it cost ?
In this economic climate it’s always wise to consider the price, although going too cheap will usually only lead to disappointing frustration, thus proving the old saying “If you buy junk – you buy twice”.
Do I like the look of it ?
Not the most important point to worry about before buying, but considering the large selection of well made hand blenders there are to choose from, why shouldn’t you select one that is also pleasing to the eye?
