Market Insight


This is our second update of 2017; our third year of researching hand blenders in the UK.

We’ve had another thorough look at product ratings in this market, and two of the most recent Top 5 hand blenders are replaced; it appears that an Andrew James hand blender was discontinued and replaced with a more powerful model. The Cookworks model lost out on overall rating scores.

For this ratings roundup, we once again stuck to hand blenders, stick blenders and immersion blenders; anything handheld, rather than counter-based.

The Top 5 contains some versatile products, with many attachments, tools and choppers. They might even replace other cookware in your kitchen.

Powerful, reliable motors, and easy-to-clean design appear to be the biggest requirements among owners; quiet, lightweight and easy click tools are also features that prompted positive comments.

It remains an easy sector for the consumer to navigate. We judge this on the product naming conventions and the amount of products to choose from. It is a market that continues to innovate, with more powerful machines being introduced and interesting tools being added.

2017 – Spring

In this update, we see a shift in the order of the Top 5 blenders, but no new product change since 2016.

We found around 30 hand blenders on sale at Argos, 15 at John Lewis and 44 at Tesco. There was more choice at Amazon but their listings make is hard to be exact about how many hand blenders are stocked. We estimate around 60.

The main manufacturers of hand blenders for sale in the UK are Kenwood, Braun, Tefal and Breville.
