Details of the handle . . . 

Starting at the very top we find the power lead, which has a decent length of 51 inches (1.3 meters). Also there is a hanging loop, so you can hang the Viva next to your pots and pans if you have hanging hooks in your kitchen.

The handle itself is made from sturdy black plastic and its upper front and back sections have been coated with soft touch rubber for a better hold, and to decrease vibrations. The uppermost part of the handle has a subtle ergonomic curve which gives you a fitted grip.

The 16 position speed setter works well for blending foods precisely and is easily thumb adjustable.

It also has a Turbo button for stubborn ingredients, and both the power button (upper) and Turbo button (lower) are recessed, coated with soft touch rubber and waterproof. They are also well aligned beneath your finger tips as you hold the handle.

The lower section of the handle has the usual left and right accessory release buttons which are secure and work well.

The blending leg and blades . . . 

The Viva hand blenders main blending leg is made from durable stainless steel, has double action blades which take no prisoners and features a uniquely shaped splash guard which works very well.

The mini chopping bowl attachment . . . 

The chopping bowl attachment isn’t the largest but it does make short work of all the usual suspects, including meat, nuts, veg, cheeses and boiled eggs. The centre stem and twin steel blades lift out which makes it easy to clean.

Mashing potatoes . . . 

The black potato masher attachment works well, has been well designed and has a large sized head which lets it mash effectively in bigger pans.

How does the whisk perform . . ?

The Viva’s whisk attachment makes really smooth mayonnaise, whips up cream in seconds and beats raw eggs perfectly. It is made from strong stainless steel and is ok to clean in the dishwasher.

Details of the blending beaker . . . 

Philips have done a good job with their blending beaker attachment, It’s made from strong transparent plastic, has stencilled measurements on the side in millilitres and ounces, has an air tight press down lid, a curved pouring handle and a jug lip. And at just over 1 litre deep it’s a decent size to.
