Overall Design Scoring

The Breville BSB510XL received plentiful praise from our testers for its overall design. It has an aesthetic appeal that very few others match. They’ve also commended its high-quality materials, which add to the visual attractiveness and make it feel more solid than most other blenders out there.

At first, we were mightily impressed with the blending shaft's unique design, but its disappointing testing results then diminished our excitement. Sure enough, the UTALENT’s distinctive design doesn’t make it any more effective or easier to use.


Ease of Use
Blade Assembly
Overall Usability Scoring

The Breville BSB510XL really impresses us with its cleanability and an easy-to-assemble blade. Its height didn’t dominate our blending experience, but we did have a hard time maneuvering it due to the tight suction it created.

As mentioned above, the UTALENT is quite complicated to use and cannot ensure smooth operation. More to the point, it lacks a few nice features that we like about some other more user-friendly models.

Overall Performance Scoring

The Breville BSB510XL is slow to blend frozen foods, grind raw nuts, or emulsify sauces, but the products it produces are well worth the extra time.

The UTALENT didn’t perform as well as other blenders we’ve tested. Although it includes all the standard features of a decent hand blender, it still couldn’t blend evenly or cleanly. It is also worth noting that during our testing, we encountered a great deal of frustration with its operation.

Pros & Cons

  • It performs with consistent efficiency.
  • It comes with extra accessories.
  • There are many innovative features like ergonomic pistol-like control grip with trigger operation.
  • Non-scratch base helps prevent scratching pots.
  • The whisk attachment brings more versatility.
  • It’s inexpensive.
  • Its milk frother can make milk foam.
  • We got extra blending tools in one set.
  • All the attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • The heavy blending performance is limited 
  • The blade housing base is relatively large, making it hard to fit well in certain blending containers.
  • It works inconsistently. 
  • The motor power is low rating. 
  • It isn’t effective at blending solid foods.


If you're looking for something that can handle basic tasks consistently, the Breville BSB510XL Control Grip is a better choice than the UTALENT 5-in-1. Although it isn’t the best in the segment, it is a nice all-arounder, passing all of our tests with above-average results. Before you buy, just note that it costs twice as much and the fact that all its niceties are exclusive but probably not life-changing.

Apart from performance, the overall build quality of the UTALENT 5-in-1 doesn’t match the Breville BSB510XL Control Grip, either. Its motor body is mostly made of hard plastic, which feels cheap and doesn’t look as solid as the Breville’s stainless steel construction. 

The only disadvantage of the Breville BSB510XL over the UTALENT 5-in-1 is the head of its blending wand which is too large to easily find itself a compatible blending container.
