Overall Design Scoring

This machine is one of dozens of nearly identical low-priced hand blenders on the market that have no particular standout features. It sports a mid-powered motor that allows you to switch between various speed settings. And just like any portable item, it is designed for small spaces.

The Chefman 6-in-1 has a hard plastic body, giving it a light, balanced weight. All the parts are designed well for the price, but they don't look really opulent. They have much in common with other blenders in this price range, so nothing in particular makes this one stand out.

Overall Usability Scoring

This blender can't completely live up to its purpose. We were frustrated with it at every turn, from ease of use to cleanability. Below you can read our quick-hit notes on things that will possibly impair your blending experience.

The balanced weight and simple controls make this blender a breeze to use, and its ergonomically-designed handle means that it’ll fit comfortably in your palm. Sometimes it’s difficult to maneuver, though, since it can create quite a bit of suction at the bottom of the container.

Overall Performance Scoring

The BELLA wasn’t the perfect immersion blender in any test but it turned out to be a surprise bargain, delivering results that were satisfying enough. The Inclusion of a whisk attachment also means it is one of the most capable models we’ve tried.

The Chefman 6-in-1 worked great for beating eggs and emulsifying mayonnaise. We wish we could say the same when it came to preparing frozen fruit smoothies, puréeing leafy greens, and grinding nuts; it was very mediocre in those tests. For a broader spectrum of blending tasks, we recommend considering other higher-powered blenders.

Pros & Cons

  • It features multiple speeds. 
  • Extra attachments are included for greater versatility. 
  • Blending wand is easy to remove and attach.
  • It can blend frozen fruits, chop vegetables, emulsify sauces, and beat eggs.
  • The motor runs quietly.
  • Its accessory package includes many helpful pieces.
  • The ergonomically-designed handle provides a comfortable grip.
  • Its performance is inconsistent.
  • The control buttons are hard to press.
  • The blade guard can cause damage to cookware surfaces.  
  • The motor vibrates violently, making it very difficult to maneuver the blender.
  • The metal blending shaft and whisk damaged our cookware’s surface.

Conclusion

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.
