Stick blenders are the workhorses of the kitchen. Compact but powerful enough to whip up soups, smoothies and sauces, stick blenders make mixing, whipping and chopping up meals and snacks a cinch.

A stick blender is a hand-held, mini version of a food processor with a detachable shaft that’s able to blend and puree with ease. They’re also called immersion and hand blenders, and they take up a fraction of the room a traditional blender. Think baby food in minutes, smoothies in seconds and cocktails quicker then you can say ‘cheers!’

If you’re in the market for a fabulous stick blender, take a look through the MoM Guide to the best stick blenders for easy mixing.

What to consider when buying a stick blender

If you’re in the market for a stick blender, it can be overwhelming to know which one is best for your kitchen. Think about the types of meals you cook, what you need it for and whether you need lots of bells and whistles.

Functionality: Most stick blenders come with at least one attachment, others come with a whole range. If you’re looking to make food prep easier, for example chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit make sure the stick blender you’re looking at has that function and appropriate attachment.

If you’re more of a baker, you’ll probably want a stick blender with a whisk attachment. If you’re wanting to make more room in your cupboards, buy a stick blender that does the job of a few other appliances – blends, chops, whisks, purees, whips.

Power: Not all stick blenders are created equal. Some have a higher wattage, which helps them power through tougher ingredients.

Safety: If you want to make sure you’re protected while using a stick blender, look for a good blade guard and handle grip to keep it firmly in your grasp.

  • thanks for providing these comparisons, especially with pricing too. i am looking for a decent unit as find the plastic bowl isn’t sturdy enough and cracks

  • Russell Hobbs one lacked power from the start and failed within a few months (used once a week for soup or smoothie). Best ever was a Kmart Ammo one a neighbour gave me when she moved. No attachments, but it was powerful and blended beautifully. Interesting that the wattage in the article is not representative of my experience with the Russell Hobbs and the Aldi one given to me as a present was dead on first use and designed to be unrepairable.

  • I’ve had the Kenwood and Russell Hobbs ones. I love the Kenwood one, it was so much more powerful and better quality. They are not all the same! The difference is not only in the extra attachments. My Russell Hobbs one is loose and water gets in now. I gave both a massive workout before they failed on me and both lasted me years.

  • I’ve had a Breville for many years. Only cost $15 and still going. I have a Bamix too but don’t use it too much.

  • I’ve considered a stick blender but I love my vitamin blender too much to buy yet another blender.

  • I did just buy from one Coles. I don’t use it often, but mine of 20 years had just died. However, I’ve now seen these bundles everywhere and I’m so sorry I didn’t see these first as there’s other appliances within these bundles that I would have preferred.

  • The stick blender is certainly used a lot in our house. I have just a simple one and to be honest wouldn’t like to have one that comes with all kind of bits and pieces which just fill up the cupboard.
    I think I bought mine at Spotlight.

  • I just have a plain stick mixer which does what I need and it’s very handy for me and I wouldn’t use all of the attachments.

  • Oo Ive always wanted to own one of these sets. They look super handy to have

  • I SO appreciate that there are all prices ranges listed!

  • I love my Bamix. It is such a workhorse and I can see it lasting as long as my Mum’s one. She’s had hers for over forty years.

  • I used to have one from Aldi that worked great
