The LINKChef 800 W Hand Blender comes as a 5-part set, while the All Clad is just a blender stick. Performance wise, the All Clad is really only good for frozen fruit smoothies and almond milk. Its hot soup purees, like the LINKChef, are slightly below standard. The LINKChef, though, offers little performance advantage being  average at best for almond milk, and a flop with smoothies. For standard blending tasks, the All Clad is better, but if you really need a whisk, the LINKChef may be the choice for you.

On other fronts, the LINKChef shows good build quality for the price. The All Clad goes further with a quality beyond expectations, and it's a full 1.2 inches longer.  Despite this, the All Clad’s power acceleration is uneven so you need to move the rather heavy blender around a lot, plus there is a noticeable suction force to deal with. The LINKChef vibrates a lot, and with a reasonably noticeably suction force, spills do occur when you move the beaker while blending.

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.
  • Sufficient motor power suitable for basic tasks
  • Extensive selection of speed options
  • Solid, mid-level construction quality
  • Array of adaptable accessories
  • 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.
  • Susceptibility to scratches
  • Overwhelming suction strength
