The Chefman’s performance was notably more competitive than the UTALENT 5-in-1 and this should be the area to focus on if you're considering buying one of the two. In our test, the UTALENT 5-in-1 was just mediocre at blending frozen fruits. More disappointing might be the pureeing performance, which was a lot worse than what we expected from a mid-range immersion blender.

A lot of new immersion blenders these days are adopting a sleek, stainless steel finish, hi-tech features, and multiple mixing attachments. But this Chefman cordless sticks to a simple style—we're happy about that, even when its capability is limited due to the lack of extra accessories. The UTALENT 5-in-1 comes with standard features, too, but it lacks overall refinement and comfort when you're tackling solid blends.

Pros & Cons

  • It feels like a fancy blender.
  • Multiple speed options allow for a wide range of tasks.

  • 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’s inexpensive.
  • Its milk frother can make milk foam.
  • We got extra blending tools in one set.
  • All the attachments are dishwasher safe.
  • It is unable to whip eggs due to the lack of a whisk attachment
  • It works inconsistently. 
  • The motor power is low rating. 
  • It isn’t effective at blending solid foods.
