Good points

  • Excellent results in our carrot-chopping test.
  • The controls are easy to use.
  • Blender shaft is removable and dishwasher-safe.
  • Blender shaft and guard are metal (so they don’t stain).
  • Has a whisk attachment.
  • Comes with a beaker (which has measurement markings).
  • Relatively light weight.

But

  • Only just OK results in our pesto-making (processing) test.
  • No non-slip grip.
  • Uncomfortable to hold.
  • Processor can jolt and slide on bench (there’s no non-slip base).

How we test

Overall score includes:

Chopping carrots 25%
Processing pesto 25%
Ease of use 50%

Our past tests found that all hand-helds were excellent at dealing with soft foods – so we no longer test for this.
