Overall Design Scoring

Everything about the All-Clad 10942212300 is expensive, from packaging to engineering and design. There are some alternatives that share many of the same qualities, such as the Vitamix 5-speed, but this All-Clad does look slightly tougher than the competition.

The Breville BSB510XL received plentiful praise from our testers for its overall design. It has an aesthetic appeal that very few others match. They’ve also commended its high-quality materials, which add to the visual attractiveness and make it feel more solid than most other blenders out there.


Ease of Use
Blade Assembly
Overall Usability Scoring

The blender’s design is straightforward but it’s not as comfortable to use as it should be. Luckily, cleaning is a simple process since the blending wand is dishwasher safe. We still recommend hand washing, though, to keep it looking new for longer.

The Breville BSB510XL really impresses us with its cleanability and an easy-to-assemble blade. Its height didn’t dominate our blending experience, but we did have a hard time maneuvering it due to the tight suction it created.

Overall Performance Scoring

We had high hopes for the All-Clad 10942212300 in terms of performance, but it didn't quite hit the mark. This isn't to label it a subpar blender; it can indeed handle specific tasks very well. However, there are numerous other all-around blenders available at a significantly lower price point that might offer more value.

The Breville BSB510XL is slow to blend frozen foods, grind raw nuts, or emulsify sauces, but the products it produces are well worth the extra time.

Pros & Cons

  • The heavy-duty motor is perfect for frozen fruit smoothies.
  • High-quality construction ensures great durability.
  • The handle is designed to be easy to grip and maneuver.
  • It performs with consistent efficiency.
  • It comes with extra accessories.
  • There are many innovative features like ergonomic pistol-like control grip with trigger operation.
  • Non-scratch base helps prevent scratching pots.
  • The whisk attachment brings more versatility.
  • The price is upscale but there is not much in return for its efficiency. 
  • It's just average at making pureéd soup.
  • Uneven acceleration causes an unpleasant blending experience. 
  • The hefty weight may cause hand fatigue.
  • The heavy blending performance is limited 
  • The blade housing base is relatively large, making it hard to fit well in certain blending containers.


Besides the pricing and the solid build with high-quality materials, there aren't a lot of similarities between these two immersion blenders. Everything from the size to the power to the style is entirely different. The All-Clad is bulkier and sports a higher-powered motor, while the Breville is more compact with a reasonable weight.

Regarding their testing performance, neither of them ranked high in our ratings since they all have their own shortcomings. Both were excellent at grinding soaked nuts but performed just averagely in the soup tests. Because the All-Clad is more powerful, it did a better job of liquifying frozen fruits, but the lack of an extra whisk attachment meant it couldn’t whip egg white and was even unable to make mayonnaise. 

Meanwhile, the Breville struggled considerably to churn out a serving of icy smoothie, but it did have the advantage over the All-Clad when it came to creating a stable emulsion or stiff peak, though the mayonnaise it produced wasn’t as creamy as others, if not very mediocre.
