Overall Design Scoring

We like the look of this blender, especially the color-coded LED ring on top. It lights up during operation to create a fancy blending experience. The overall quality is fine with all parts coming as standard. However, we did have a few reservations about the blades’ metal housing, which presents some shortcomings that you may feel uncomfortable with.

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.


Ease of Use
Blade Assembly
Overall Usability Scoring

The Chefman’s usability is great. There’s no cord to accidentally yank on, allowing for maximum flexibility while blending. With the balanced size, it isn’t cumbersome, creating a comfortable experience even when you're pureeing a large batch.

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.

Overall Performance Scoring

The Chefman is a moderately capable blender. With stable battery power, it brings quite a lot to the table. In our tests, it didn’t work particularly quickly, nor were the results among the best, but based on its testing performance, we’re confident that the capabilities of this blender extend beyond soup, smoothies, and mayonnaise.

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.

As a battery-powered machine, the Chefman Cordless is super convenient to use. Meanwhile, the Breville BSB510XL lacks mobility, and its overall design isn’t as balanced as the competition.

For testing performance, the Chefman Cordless is a close second in our mid-range immersion blender rankings. Even when it failed one of the five tests, its performance rating was still one point higher than the all-arounder Breville BSB510XL.
