Hamilton Beach Hand Blender, stainless steel

The Hamilton Beach 2-Speed Hand Blender’s ultimate selling point is its value for the money. In fact, it’s currently one of the cheapest immersion blenders.

It comes in three variants: black (59759), with a whisk (59762), and with a whisk and chopper (59765). 

Here’s the deal:

These three choices are all budget-friendly. So, to get the most out of your penny’s worth, you should go for the 59765. It’s the option with both whisk and chopper attachment.

However, budget and functionality are different things. So, let’s find out this blender’s real value, starting with pros and cons.

PROS

  • Budget-friendly
  • 225-watt motor
  • low and high speeds
  • Detachable shaft for easy cleaning
  • Includes whisk, and chopper attachment
  • Dishwasher safe
  • 1-year warranty

CONS

  • Classic and bulky design
  • It doesn’t say whether the beaker, or chopper is BPA-free
  • The bell guard may damage your pan
  • Not ideal for heavy jobs
  • Short wand length

Hamilton Beach Hand Blender Features

Blend Quality

The Hamilton Beach Hand Blender features a 225-watt motor with low and high speeds. You can easily create batters, sauces, pureed soups, smoothies, and milkshakes with this machine.

Pro tip: For any hard food, cut them to at least 1 inch (2.5 cm). Also, there should be a significant amount of liquid in the recipe. By doing so, you’ll get a more satisfactory result, and it will stretch the life span of your stick blender.

Best one yet:

hamilton beach immersion blender attachments

For such an affordable price, the Hamilton Beach 59765 comes with a whisk and a chopper attachment. With these accessories, your machine quickly becomes a multipurpose appliance; a blender, a mini food processor, and a mixer.

So, other than the recipes I mentioned above, you can whisk eggs or whip cream too. You can also shorten your prep time with the use of the mini-chopper.

Here’s the catch:

A 225-watt motor is, sadly, not that powerful. In other words, frozen fruits, ice, thick recipes, or even nuts are inadvisable. Furthermore, the blending wand is short, so it’s only suitable for small volumes.

If you’re after a high-performance hand blender, check out Vitamix Immersion Blender.

Ease of Use

The Hamilton Hand Blender has a lightweight yet bulky design. It’s in the middle ground of comfortable and inconvenient, a 3 out of 5 per se. 

Here’s the deal:

Using an immersion blender certainly saves you some cleanup because you can blend directly on a pan. However, for this blender, it can scratch your non-stick pans. So, as much as possible, don’t use it on a non-stick pan.

On the other hand, this immersion blender is easy to use with only 2 buttons: low (I) and high (II). You can effortlessly select between the speeds and control it with one hand.

It’s also easy to clean; no need to clean it manually with a brush.

Pro tip: On the blending beaker (or any bowl), add a cup of water and a drop of dishwashing detergent. Then, blend for at least 30 seconds. Afterward, rinse, and you’re done!

If you want a faster and more comfortable alternative, you can also load the accessories into the dishwasher.

Additionally, the Hamilton Immersion Blender has a 5 feet cord, which allows you to have more freedom in the kitchen.

Verdict

The Hamilton Beach Hand Blender is not a “beyond expectation” product, but it’s good enough for its affordability. Given that it is not a heavy-duty machine, it’s only ideal if you’re going to use it occasionally and on simple blends. 

Suppose you plan on using a hand blender regularly. In that case, there are also affordable yet excellent quality immersion blenders such as KitchenAid Cordless Blender.
