For all-round blending and small food processing tasks, a stick blender is hard to beat. 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 experts in the kitchen lab put stick blenders through a series of tests to find the models that:

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

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

    We test stick blenders that come with a separate chopper/processor attachment by making a pesto sauce, assessing the blender's ability to process the ingredients evenly.
