When compared to their rivals, both the BELLA 10-Speed and the Muller Ultra-Stick fall down and their shaky motors make them less user-friendly. With this problem in mind, it can be hard not to feel frustrated when switching between different speeds.

During our test, we noticed that their efficiency was almost equal. Sporting mid-powered motors, they got the job done but couldn’t give us the superior silky results that we desire. And in terms of heavy-duty tasks, they were both quite disappointing. 

On the upside, they both offer a refined package that includes a few extra blending accessories, allowing you to make the most of your appliance.

Pros & Cons

  • It features multiple speeds. 
  • Extra attachments are included for greater versatility. 
  • Blending wand is easy to remove and attach.
  • It’s budget-priced but loaded with accessories 
  • The stainless steel exterior is corrosion resistant 
  • The handle is uniquely-designed with a comfortable grip 
  • Wiping it down is not so difficult
  • The whole blender can be hung on a hook with other kitchen tools
  • 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 low-quality construction cannot ensure durability 
  • The blade isn’t good at preparing frozen smoothies or pulverizing solid ingredients 
  • The whisk attachment doesn’t provide consistent performance
