7 Best Immersion Blenders of 2022 – Top Hand Blenders

We updated this story in October 2022 to ensure all products are in stock and reflect current pricing, and we added a new pick from Vitamix after the most recent round of testing in the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Innovation Lab.

Immersion blenders — also called hand blenders, stick blenders or wand mixers — give you the freedom to blend and puree foods without needing to transfer them to a full-size blender. Some are constructed as a single piece — the motor cannot be removed from the blender arm that houses the blades. Others are designed with a motor that can be attached to the blender arm as well as other tools like a whisk, mini food processor or beaters like those on a hand mixer. No matter the type, the best models can handle big jobs like blending smoothies and pureeing soups directly in the pot and smaller jobs like making mayo or salad dressing.

The pros in the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Technology Lab tested 13 models in our most recent test to find those that are easy to assemble, comfortable to operate and delivered on performance. To test each immersion blender, we blended a smoothie, pureed a soup and made a mayonnaise. We also considered the weight, power and settings of each model to find the best options.

Read on for more information on how we tested as well as what to consider when shopping for an immersion blender. We also weigh in on whether an immersion blender is worth adding to your kitchen toolkit. Looking for more blender recommendations?

How we tested immersion blenders

Jill Sollazzo

When the experts in the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Innovation Lab assess immersion blenders, we put each to the test in common tasks: blending a smoothie, making mayonnaise and pureeing soup directly in a pot.

The smoothie evaluates a blender's ability to tackle ice and whole strawberries. The mayonnaise test indicates the capacity to emulsify, which needs to happen smoothly and slowly to create stability. The soup test helps us understand the blender's ability to puree large quantities of ingredients (including potato and broccoli) without splatter or leaving chunks.

We also consider the weight, comfort and available accessories for each machine. We review the instruction manual and appreciate quick start guides, helpful illustrations or images and tips or recipes.

Is an immersion blender worth it?

Our experts think it is worth it to add an immersion blender to your kitchen, especially if you are a lover of smooth soups and quick sauces. It's easy to use, reasonable to store and quicker to clean than a countertop blender.

An immersion blender is great for small jobs like making pesto, dips, mayonnaise, whipped cream and even scrambled eggs. Good immersion blenders can whip up smoothies, milkshakes and frozen drinks for one or two people — but that's where they cap out since the motor (and blades) are smaller than a countertop blender and cannot run for a very long time without overheating.

We do advise that you avoid hard foods (like nuts and seeds) or very fibrous ones (such as kale and carrots) because they generally won’t become silky smooth; for those, we do recommend a high-powered blender or food processor. Also note that with an immersion blender, the blade needs to be fully submerged to work; you may find that you have trouble blending very small quantities.

What to consider before buying an immersion blender

✔️ Corded vs. cordless: A cord offers constant power, but it can get tangled or burned or could knock things over on a busy kitchen counter and stovetop. Cordless models are portable and convenient, but they need to be charged between uses or they may lose power before you can finish the job.

✔️ Blade guard vents: The blade guard is the dome-shaped part of the blender arm that covers the blades. We found that wide blade guards with large vents do a better job of circulating the food for better and faster blending. They are also easier to clean because food stuck under the blades is more accessible. Just make sure the blade guard will fit easily in your favorite pots and smoothie cups.

✔️ Handle and grip: To operate an immersion blender, you’ll grip the handle with one hand and press the on, off or speed buttons with your fingers, so it needs to feel comfortable to hold and operate simultaneously. Your hands will fatigue if the handle is too large, if the buttons are too small or awkwardly placed or if the blender feels heavy. Also, the buttons should be easy to press without much force. Ideally, your fingers will fall naturally on the buttons when you hold the handle. We found non-slip rubber handles to be softer and easier to grip.

✔️ Design: Look for a model that's compact enough to store in a kitchen drawer. Though immersion blenders are easy to clean, we prefer models that have a removable blender attachment that is dishwasher-safe.

✔️ Additional attachments: Many immersion blenders function with a motor that can also be connected to attachments for chopping, processing, whisking or frothing. If you already have stand-alone versions of these appliances, you can save money by buying a model without the extras, but they can be a convenient option if you don't own the pieces or want to consolidate your storage. One accessory we highly recommend is a sturdy, tall and narrow blending jar: It helps ensure the blender is submerged, reduces splattering and makes the up-and-down motion needed to blend easier. Plus, you can serve or store food directly in it.

✔️ Wattage: We have found this is less important than other factors. The immersion blenders we tested had motors between 225 and 600 watts and although wattage is an indicator of power, we did not find that it’s a reflection of quality, performance or comfort.

Tested & Approved

After rigorous home testing, the Cuisinart CSB-179 Smart Stick Hand Blender earned the top spot with its variable speed control, useful attachments, and overall quality. Coming in a close second is the KitchenAid 2-Speed Hand Blender, which is our editor-approved pick based on its speed and ease of cleaning.

An immersion blender, also called a handheld blender, can be a convenient, easy-to-clean, and compact alternative to a full-size blender since it can be tucked into a drawer or cabinet. It can be used for a variety of everyday kitchen tasks, such as mixing pancake batter, whisking eggs, whipping cream, blending smoothies or sauces, and even pureeing baby food. And it's an essential tool for blending creamy, pureed soups, like butternut squash soup, right in the pot.

But there are a few considerations before you buy one of these handy gadgets. Firstly, there's no standard-size blade attachment for immersion blenders, so pay attention to the diameter of the blade if you want to be able to blend smoothies or salad dressings in drinking glasses or mason jars. Secondly, you'll have to choose between corded and cordless models: Cordless immersion blenders give you more freedom, but you have to remember to charge them.

We took these factors into account, as well as sent some of the blenders to our home testers to try. Here, are our top picks (and some buying tips) for the best immersion blenders.

Cuisinart Smart Stick Variable Speed Hand Blender Review

Who else recommends it? Good Housekeeping and The Strategist both picked the Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender.

What do buyers say? 92% of 2,400+ Amazon reviewers rated this product 4 stars or above.

Cuisinart may be the most familiar name in food processors, and this immersion blender lives up to the brand's reputation. It has a button for either continuous or pulse blending, as well as variable speed control so you can choose exactly the speed that’s right for you—no need to rely on a preset speed.

The blender only has two buttons on its front; an on button and a lock button, which needs to be depressed before the blender will turn on, but then it can be released. While that might be a safety feature, we found it awkward to use.

It comes with a jar that’s perfect for blending smoothies or making mayonnaise, a chopper attachment that’s great for making salsas and prepping veggies, and a whisk attachment for making whipped cream or beating eggs.

Our tester preferred using the highest speed setting for most recipes, but noted the adjustable speed is useful for blending softer foods, like avocados, or recipes that may splatter.

Testing Takeaway

"The main feature is the variable speed control, which was easy to use. I found that I generally set it at the highest speed and left it there. However, it's great to have the option for a slower speed so that the blender can start on low to avoid splashing."

This simple two-speed blender has a removable blending arm that makes cleaning easier and comes from a brand that’s much-loved when it comes to kitchen appliances and gadgets. The blender doesn’t include a lot of accessories or frills that add to the price, so it’s quite affordable despite the quality.

It comes with a handy blending jar with a lid, so it can be used for storage before or after foods are blended. The soft-grip handle is easy to hold when blending, so it’s comfortable to use, no matter how much you need to blend.

Like many KitchenAid products, this comes in a wide range of colors, so you can match this to your stand mixer or kitchen décor, or add a pop of color to the kitchen.

Vitamix Immersion Blender Review

Vitamix makes blenders that have a top-of-the-line reputation for professional and home use, and its immersion blender fully lives up to that hype. Thicker soups, sauces, and smoothies can be tricky to get all-the-way smooth and can cause some immersion blenders to overheat, but this handheld blender has the power and durability to handle tough jobs and large batch sizes every time.

It has five different speeds and can run continuously for up to 4 minutes before automatically shutting off. Lastly, the heat-safe shield at the bottom will keep this blender from damaging your nonstick cookware. When tested, it was both easy to use and easy to clean, and the 5-foot-long cord helped to reach between pots and faraway outlets.

At around $150, the Vitamix Immersion Blender is one of the more expensive immersion blenders on the market. If you can spring for it, it's worth the price and will last a long time.

Mueller's stick blender is a great option if our top picks don't quite fit within the budget for an immersion blender. You don't sacrifice any power for a more affordable price, though.

With a full copper motor and 500 watts of power, this handheld blender is plenty powerful to handle making baby food purees, smoothies, smooth soups and sauces, and even homemade peanut or almond butter. Reviewers say everything about this blender feels sturdy, durable, well-made, and comparable to blenders that cost twice as much.

It includes a milk frother for the ultimate upgrade to homemade lattes and a whisk attachment so you can use it to whip cream, beat eggs, or make a batch of homemade mayo for sandwiches. Clean up of the blender and attachments is as simple as running under warm water or popping them in the dishwasher for a more thorough cleaning.

With 12 speeds and a turbo mode, this immersion blender will make short work of fruits and vegetables to make perfectly smooth milkshakes and smoothies, as well as easy salad dressings, mayonnaise, and sauces. The KOIOS immersion blender includes a chopper attachment for chopping onions or herbs, a whisk attachment for whipping eggs whites or heavy cream, and a blender jar for times when you’re not using your own container for blending and emulsifying.

The blade is reinforced with titanium for extra strength, and the bell-shaped housing over the blade keeps the blade off the bottom surface of your containers and helps prevent splashing. A loop on the top of the handle makes it easy to hang this gadget on a rack to keep it handy.

Made for commercial kitchen use, but priced in line with home-use immersion blenders, this has the power to blend three gallons of soup. While this is called a light-duty blender, it’s designed for light duty in a professional kitchen environment, so it will be more than enough for your home kitchen.

This is lighter in weight than more robust commercial units, so it’s easy to hold and use. It has two speeds so you can control the texture of your food, operated with a simple button. This doesn’t come with any extras, but it’s a powerful choice for cooks who prefer commercial appliances.

All-Clad Immersion Blender Review

This may be one of the easiest immersion blenders to clean since there's no cord to worry about, and the shaft removes from the body of the blender. The removable shaft also gives you options for storage in small spaces where the full blender might not fit as well. It is important to note, however, that the components of this blender are hand-wash only. This is the cordless version of the blender we reviewed previously.

This is a high-powered immersion blender with a variable five-speed setting so you’ll have complete control of the texture of your refried beans, soups, or pureed vegetables. You can even use this for a quick chop of nuts since the blade shroud gives you plenty of space. This cordless model has the same power as the previously reviewed blender at 600 watts, but you will pay a premium for the convenience of cutting the cord.

It comes with a recharging base that doubles as upright storage housing. While this doesn’t include any accessories that you might find with other blenders, a mini chopper and a whisk are available for purchase if you need those options.

What We Don't Like

While most immersion blenders are designed to mimic the functions of a blender, this one also takes on many of the functions of a food processor, with a 6-cup processing bowl that is powered by the blender body. The bowl includes an adjustable slicing blade with 18 thickness settings, so you can slice potatoes for chips or carrots for soup. A reversible shredding disk lets you choose from two different shredding options, while the processor bowl’s S-blade lets you chop, blend, or puree, just like a larger food processor.

Another unique accessory is the Variable Mashing Leg, which lets you choose fine, medium, or coarse mashing with a twist of the head, so you can use your immersion blender for mashing potatoes without the risk of them turning into glue.

When you’re using the immersion blender in its traditional mode, the shape of the blade housing reduces suction, so it won’t get stuck to the bottom of your containers while you blend. Plus, it has 15 speeds, giving you greater control of the result. Ice crushing blades and a whisk attachment are included, making this an incredibly versatile appliance.

While any immersion blender can be used to puree bananas or cooked carrots, this set was created with babies in mind. This has an extra blade and larger cutting area, so purees get smoother faster.

The bell-shaped shroud over the blades keeps splashing to a minimum, so there will be less mess to clean up when cooking is done. This has two speeds so you can adjust the food texture to suit your baby’s needs.

The included 1.5-cup chopper lets you chop as well as puree, so you can add some texture to the baby’s puree, or make a dip for yourself at the end of the day.

This includes a 20-ounce blending beaker that’s the perfect size for the blender, so you don’t have to scramble for a jar to use. You can also use the beaker for making smoothies or cocktails. A flexible silicone freezer tray lets you make and freeze up to nine portions in advance, then just pop them out and thaw or heat them when you need them.

Final Verdict

We love the Cuisinart CSB-179 Smart Stick Hand Blender for its overall quality, versatility, and useful included attachments that should cover almost all your needs.

What to Look for in an Immersion Blender


Immersion blenders are meant to be smaller, more compact, and easier to store than regular blenders and food processors, but that doesn't mean there isn't variation when it comes to size, weight, and style.

Pay attention to the size of the blender head—some are too bulky to fit in a standard smoothie cup and are designed for large batches. Also, decide whether you want a corded or cordless model. Cordless models offer convenience but need to be recharged often. Finally, pay attention to whether the shaft detaches, which makes for easier cleaning and storage.


Think about what you will be using your immersion blender for the most. Some are perfect for purees, like when you want to make baby food. Others are designed to slice through ice for quick smoothie-making. Most immersion blenders start at about 200 watts but can go up to 1000 watts. In general, the higher the wattage, the greater the power.

Speed Settings

Most immersion blenders offer a high and low speed. High speeds are best for blending tougher ingredients, like fibrous vegetables or ice, while low speeds can chop vegetables for salsa and retain some texture.

Some models have variable speed settings, which gives you greater control and versatility over the finishes texture and consistency of your blends.

Included Accessories

If all you want is a stick blender, then there's no reason to pay more for lots of extras—particularly because they might not be the highest quality. However, a lot of immersion blenders come with convenient items like a chopper or a whisk attachment and blender jars. If you're getting an all-in-one immersion blender package, keep in mind how you'll store everything—some come with storage cases for all the pieces so nothing gets lost.


Why use an immersion blender instead of a regular blender?

An immersion blender gives you more flexibility, since you can blend recipes directly in a cooking pot, cup, jar, or mixing bowl. Not having to transfer recipes into a regular blender saves time, mess, and cuts down on the number of dishes to clean.

Immersion blenders also do a better job of blended or pureeing small amounts of food. Regular blenders often need to be filled to a certain level for the most efficient blending.

They're also smaller and therefore easier to store compared to countertop blenders.

Can you froth milk with an immersion blender?

Yes, you can froth milk with an immersion blender. Place your milk of choice in a container with tall sides to prevent splashing. A mason jar or drinking glass will work.

Can you use an immersion blender for mashed potatoes?

Immersion blenders will mash potatoes, but many cooks report the texture of the potatoes turns gummy and starchy due to the high speed of blenders.

The best tool to mash potatoes for a creamy, but not gummy, texture is either a hand masher or a ricer.

How do you use an immersion blender without splashing?

Blend in a container with tall sides to keep splashing to a minimum. Tall drinking jars, mason jars, pitchers, and deep pots are your best options. Another tip to cut down on splashing is to make sure the blade head of the immersion blender is completely submerged.

Can you use an immersion blender in a nonstick pan?

You can, but you run the risk of scratching the nonstick coating if the blades make contact with the bottom or sides of the pan. To prevent this, don't touch the blades to the bottom of the pan and hold the immersion blender at an angle.

Some immersion blenders, like the Vitamix model, have been specially designed with blade guards for use in nonstick cookware. Still, if you're worried about your nonstick pans, it may be better to blend in another container to be safe.

Can an immersion blender replace a hand mixer?

While an immersion blender can handle some of the same tasks as a hand mixer, like whipping egg whites into stiff peaks or making whipped cream, it can not replace a hand mixer. Immersion blenders are not equipped to mix stiff batters or cream sugar into butter.

How to choose a puree soup blender

Choosing a puree soup blender is not that difficult - any model can handle boiled vegetables. This does not require any great power and additional accessories - a regular submersible leg is used. Some believe that blenders with a plastic nozzle are not suitable for mashed soups, however, the food-grade plastic used in the “leg” is heat-resistant and has no contraindications to contact with hot foods.

In general, if the blender is used mainly for making cream soup, you should look towards budget models that have proven themselves to be of high quality. nine0003

We have studied the reviews of the most popular puree blenders and present to your attention an overview of the best models.

This allows you to conveniently store the blender without wasting extra space in the kitchen.

Owner reviews who have used this blender to make soups:

I also quickly prepared cream soup, right in a saucepan on the stove.

    Bosch MSM blender review 87165

    Which blender for hot soups is better to choose: manual and cup models , as well as vegetable purees for babies. This device helps to introduce the principles of proper nutrition and provide households with a portion of vegetables in an attractive way. nine0003

    Why you should buy a hot soup blender

    A blender for hot soups, shakes, smoothies, vegetable spreads and other home-cooked meals to help you maintain a healthy and balanced diet. No need to buy ready-made juices or drinks, vegetable creams or other convenience foods. Everything can be prepared quickly and easily at home. A blender with the right power will help blend soup and vegetables, mash sauces, and even chop nuts.

    Thanks to this, smoothies, millet desserts, vegetable creams and many other interesting dishes can easily appear in the daily menu. It would be very difficult or almost impossible to make most of them without a blender. To cook them all, you need to choose quality equipment that can process even the most complex ingredients. nine0003

    Is it possible to mix hot soup with a blender

    Modern blenders are designed in such a way that using them to mix hot ingredients is not a problem. The key here is the use of high and low temperature resistant stainless steel.

    If you are using a jug blender or cup model, soup blending is also possible. This is due to the fact that the blender containers are made of durable plastic or tempered glass. nine0003

    Which hot soup blender to choose

    Both a cup blender and a hand blender are suitable for blending hot soup, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

    The advantage of the cup blender is primarily the protection of the surfaces around it. By pouring vegetables into a cup and closing it on top, you can be sure that cabinets, countertops and kitchen walls will not get dirty. The advantage of this model is also its high efficiency, high power and almost no need to apply physical force for this work. However, the downside is that you will only be making a limited amount of soup in a bowl blender at a time. nine0003

    In addition, the vegetables must be transferred from the pot to the cup and then pour the cream from the cup onto the plates or back into the pot and then onto the plate. This is quite annoying, and at the same time quite a lot of dishes get dirty, which then have to be washed (or at least put in the dishwasher).

    The immersion blender allows you to mix hot soup directly in the pot, making the whole process much easier. In fact, just mix the ingredients of the soup and it can be served to family members or guests. This in turn allows you to blend a much larger amount of soup at a time, although of course a hand mixer also has its limitations (deli blenders are used for really large portions). nine0003

    The downside of this solution is the risk of soiling the surface around the pot. Thus, with careless mixing, you can splash the entire kitchen. Also, you need to put in some effort to make hot soup.

    The hand blender is the best choice if, in addition to soup, you mainly prepare vegetable spreads, hummus, millet pudding and other similar dishes. The cup is ideal for making cocktails and smoothies.

    What should be a good blender for hot soup

    When choosing a blender for mixing hot soups, as well as other dishes, you should pay attention to its power. There are many cheap blenders on the market up to 200 watts, but most of them can only work with soft vegetables and fruits.

    Of course, this power is enough to cook soup, but if you want the device to be really multifunctional, choose equipment with much more power. Ideally, more than 750 watts - this power is a guarantee that the blender will not only grind hard vegetables, but also crush ice, nuts or coffee. nine0003

    It's also good to pay attention to small details such as the length of the cable or the strong suction cups in the case of the cup blender or the jars that come with the hand blender.
