Build Quality
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.

Efficiency aside, the Hamilton Beach’s compact footprint makes it suitable for those who have limited storage space and want to prepare small batches of puree at a time. Still, it is so poorly constructed that we couldn’t consider it a reliable blender. Our Hamilton actually broke right after it finished the final test. 


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.

When we talk about ease of blending, we mean the immersion blender in question has practical controls, good cleanability, and a user-friendly design —one that allows you to operate your device with minimum distraction. That said, none of the Hamilton Beach 59765 features meet such criteria. In spite of its simple design, it doesn’t work as comfortably as we’d like.

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 Hamilton Beach is designed to be an affordable solution for heavy-duty tasks, but in practice, it ends up a flimsy stick of plastic with low efficiency and inconsistent performance, especially when it comes to processing solid ingredients. If you’re expecting its portability and cheapness to make it fun to use, then you might be surprised to learn its performance was at best dreary in almost all of our tests. For superior alternatives, we recommend considering the Braun MultiQuick-5, Vitamix 5-speed, or cordless Chefman blenders.

Pros & Cons

  • The lock function helps prevent accidental operation, reducing the likelihood of personal injury. 
  • It feels like a fancy blender.
  • Multiple speed options allow for a wide range of tasks. 
  • It is capable of pulverizing frozen fruit and making mayonnaise.
  • Colored LED ring indicates the battery’s status accurately.
  • All the buttons are easy to control.
  • An included cookware guard keeps pots and pans scratch-free.
  • It can be used for pureeing cooked vegetables, fresh fruits, and baby food.
  • Its easy-grip design allows for flexible control 
  • All the accessories are dishwasher safe
  • It is unable to whip eggs due to the lack of a whisk attachment
  • It isn’t powerful enough for many blending tasks
  • The two included attachments are almost useless
  • It isn’t durable due to the poorly-constructed design


We appreciate the inexpensive price of the Hamilton Beach 2-speed, but a few usability issues and low efficiency kept us from recommending it. The Chefman Cordless presents very few drawbacks and it outperformed the competition in every test, except for beating eggs, so it represents a more appealing choice for a mid-range immersion blender.

Design-wise, the Hamilton Beach 2-speed features a lot of flimsy plastic, which seems a little tight for a blender at this price point. The Chefman Cordless, on the other hand, sports a visually appealing design making for a more expensive and durable feel. It's definitely a notch above what you'd expect.
