Last updated: 23 March 2015

For small kitchens or for cooks who like to keep appliances at the ready, a stick blender is hard to beat. We lab test and review the latest models to help you find the best stick blender for you. Our stick blender buying guide will help you decide which one you need, and how we test explains our testing rigour.

Ideal for pureeing straight from the pot not to mention extremely handy if you have a baby to prepare food for, we've previously found stick blenders to be excellent for blending soft foods, so now our testing focuses on models with a processing attachment. Our expert testers subject them to processing and chopping tests to help you find the models that:

  • are the best at processing and chopping
  • are the easiest to handle
  • are the easiest to clean

We also give you good and bad points for each model as well as tell you how much noise they make to help you find the perfect one for your kitchen space. And our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.

In the past we've found all stick blenders to be excellent for blending and emulsifying so we now only conduct chopping and processing tests on models that come with a separate chopper/processor.
