How we chose the best stick blender in Australia

Review sites – including this one – are subjective by nature. Everybody has a different opinion of what is best.

So to try and counter the fact that every best guide on the internet has a different opinion of what is best, we approached our list by combining the results of some of the top sites recommending hand blenders on the market today.

To determine this list, we followed the same journey most consumers would follow: we went to Google.

We searched for “Best stick blender” and identified 10 of the top results. It’s important to note that Google results can change often. We’ve outlined the full list of referenced sites referenced sites below:

Top ranking sites

We listed out all of the immersion blenders listed on each site, tidying up any slight differences in spelling for consistency.

We then calculated the frequency in which each product was mentioned across those 10 guides. The more frequently a product is mentioned, the more agreement there is between experts reviewing these products that it is, indeed, one of the best products available.

We set a minimum of three mentions across all 10 guides to be eligible for inclusion in our guide to the best stick blender in Australia.

Before we created this page we took some time to remove products that are either unavailable, or difficult to find in Australia.

We also leveraged our own experience with products to ensure that we wouldn’t be recommending any product that doesn’t deliver.


Guide to buying the best stick blender in Australia

Whether you want to buy one of the products featured above or something different, these are the things to look for when choosing the best stick blender in Australia.

Corded vs cordless

Decide whether you want to be connected to power while using your hand blender. For the most part, moving to a cordless model could mean sacrificing some power, and if you need to blend a lot of food then cordless may not be the way to go.

Also check whether you can use the blender while charging for a cordless model. The last thing you want is to have to wait two hours for your blender to charge because you didn’t realise the battery was flat.

Attachments

Stick blenders are pretty straightforward devices, but many brands have taken to offering dedicated attachments to broaden the functionality.

Look for attachments like whisks, food processors and blending jugs.

Ease of cleaning

If the immersion blender has removable parts, check if they can be washed in the dishwasher. It’s going to make a big difference to your satisfaction levels if you don’t have to hand wash everything every time you use it.

Pulse function

Some hand blenders offer one speed. Others offer many speeds. Most importantly of all is the ability to pulse. This lets you break up bigger bits of food and create a more even consistency.

Price

Pricing starts at about $50 for a budget stick blender, but can scale up to $600 or so.

Typically, a good quality model will range between $150-$300, though some models are more and some are less.
