Bella 10-Speed

Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1

Bella 10-Speed vs. Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1: One is Slightly Better Than the Other.

Overall Verdict

These models are closely similar, with a standard look and common features. They both come with an impressive list of attachments, too. This makes it very difficult to choose between them if you only focus on style or design.

Fortunately, highlight differences lie in their performance. In our tests, we found that both their whisk attachments worked well enough to produce the best mayonnaise and beaten egg whites. When it comes to preparing frozen fruit smoothies, pureéd hot soup, and non-dairy milk, however, the Chefman 6-in-1 somehow couldn’t match the Bella 10-speed, despite the fact that they share the same power rating. 

So, if you want an affordable immersion blender that works fine for all sorts of blends, the Bella 10-speed, is by far the better design.
