The hand blender by KitchenAid

The hand blender by KitchenAid

Good news for KitchenAid fans (I think we can talk about fans), they will be able to enlarge their collection since the brand has been marketing a new device since February which will be available in the following months. KitchenAid continues its logic of small household appliances for professionals with a range of immersion blenders that had so far been shunned by the brand. If the KitchenAid Artisan multi-function robot has long been considered THE professional robot to have and which had no equivalent, the brand's hand-held mixer will have to face a little more difficult competition since there already exists on the market a hand blender considered as THE professional hand blender to have, I named the Bamix. How will KitchenAid succeed in establishing itself before this recognized brand? Surprisingly it may be by the price that KitchenAid will convince when the brand had rather accustomed us to fairly high prices. The first model which is the entry level is a submersible mixer with wire endowed with many accessories (which I will detail later) and whose displayed price is 149 €. It is a price which corresponds to the basic model of the Bamix which is much less accessorized. The brand even happens, when we switch to the wireless model, to offer prices lower than comparable models at Philips for example (€ 230 for the Robust hand blender from Philips against € 169 for the KitchenAid). Now that we are reassured on the "affordable" side of the products, I suggest that you detail the different models available very soon.

The entry level is therefore a hand blender with a power of 180 W at 5 speeds which surprises with the abundance of its accessories. On this side, we can not blame the brand for wanting to ruin us by buying expensive accessories. To prove its belonging to the professional sphere, this mixer is proposed with two interchangeable mixing axes, one of 20 cm and the other of 33 cm which allows to use it with containers of different heights. In addition to this, there are of course three nozzles: an S-shaped blade for crushed ice, soups and purees, a star blade for mincing meat, mince and make coulis and finally a milk frother / beater and cake and pancake doughs.
You will tell me that it is the minimum but KitchenAid adds a whisk as well as a 600 ml mini-chopper and a 1 liter graduated pitcher. A storage case is also included to keep your device in the best conditions.
This model is available in onyx black, empire red, platinum silver and cream. Two other models, a little more upscale, will also appear in the coming weeks. This time it will be cordless hand blenders. The first wireless version will this time be delivered without accessories but will include an LED screen that indicates the selected speed and the battery charge status. The mixer works with a 12V Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. This version, available in onyx black and empire red, will cost € 169. Finally the last version will be this time the wireless mixer but delivered with all the accessories in only one possible color, the red apple of love. For this last device, it will be necessary to pay the sum of 299 € which, for once, begins to cost.
Even if this prestige version has enough to make you salivate with the freedom of wireless, I think that the entry-level model remains the most attractive in terms of value for money thanks to the many accessories, the storage case and the price ultimately wise enough compared to competitors.
