Bella 10-Speed vs. Chefman Cordless: There's a Lot to Like About Both of Them

Both these immersion blenders provide a pleasing amount of power for simple tasks, but we found the Bella 10-speed did a better job in pureeing hot soup while the Chefman delivered a more milk-like texture.

When you're only blending soft ingredients, the Bella 10-speed feels smooth and easy to maneuver but the motor does slightly rattle toward heavier blending duties. Along with that, it also shakes violently if running at the highest speeds, which may be a problem in a prolonged operation.

The Chefman cordless, on the other hand, is a fun, convenient hand-held device, allowing us to blend with confidence. The only disadvantage of this blender over the Bella 10-speed is its lack of extra accessories.

  • Extra attachments are included for greater versatility. 
  • Blending wand is easy to remove and attach.
  • The lock function helps prevent accidental operation, reducing the likelihood of personal injury.

  • Multiple speed options allow for a wide range of tasks. 
  • It is capable of pulverizing frozen fruit and making mayonnaise.

  • An included cookware guard keeps pots and pans scratch-free.
  • Its performance is inconsistent.
  • The control buttons are hard to press.
