The Chefman Cordless gets a lot right. Its power is sufficient for nearly all sorts of blends. It is also convenient to use and has some useful features that can make heavy-duty blending easier and less tiring. 

The Chefman 6-in-1, on the other hand, didn’t impress us much. In our test, it was incomparable to the competition, displaying only mediocre capability for pureeing soup, blending frozen fruits, and grinding soaked nuts. If you’re expecting great utility, this blender might disappoint you. It tends to create too much suction causing it to stick to the blending beaker and its motor shakes quite violently at the highest speeds. 

The only advantage of the Chefman 6-in-1 over the Chefman Cordless is its accessory package which includes a whisk, a chopper, and a slicer attachment.

Hot Soup Purée

  • Pureeing Time: 30 seconds
  • Result: Slightly chunky
  • Suction: Slightly

We allowed the Chefman 6-in-1 30 seconds worth of runtime for this test and found that it worked just slightly above average for making a purée of root veggies. Our pumpkins and carrots were blended evenly so the soup came out creamy enough to satisfy us. That said, a smattering of celery fibers still remained unprocessed, making the soup coarser than a restaurant-style dish. It might create a smoother texture with more blending time, so this blender is not a bad choice overall.

  • Pureeing Time: 30 seconds
  • Result: Smooth
  • Suction:  Slightly

The Chefman managed to create a serving of hot soup in 30 seconds. The soup wasn’t puréed to perfection since there was still a considerable amount of food flakes left behind, but for the most part, we were pleased with its smoothness. If you prefer your purée to be smoother, blend longer.

Frozen Fruit Smoothie

  • Blending Time: 2 mins 30 secs
  • Result: Smooth
  • Suction: Slightly

We were skeptical whether this blender had enough power to churn through solid ingredients like frozen fruits. In the end, however, it did surprisingly well. It was hard not to notice tiny flakes of kale in the final result, but most of us agree that they didn’t harm the smoothie’s texture.

The trade off was blending time. While sporting the same motor power as its counterparts, such as the Braun MutiQuick-5 or the BELLA 10-Speed, the Chefman  6-in-1 somehow took a full minute more to create equivalent results. Blenders that work faster create a creamier texture because the icy fruit doesn’t have a chance to thaw. The Chefman’s smoothie tasted more diluted.

  • Blending Time: 1 min 10 secs
  • Result: Smooth
  • Suction: No

At the highest speed setting, our Chefman broke down all the ingredients quite easily — better and faster, in fact, than we expected from a blender in this segment. The test smoothie came out with a satisfying texture, combining smooth, pulverized fruits with the green of kale for a nice, chilled mouthfeel.

Mayonnaise

  • Emulsifying Time: 1 min 30 secs
  • Result: Smooth
  • Suction: Yes

For this test, we combined three egg yolks with 240ml canola oil. This blender took a minute and a half to turn it into pleasant yellowish mayo which had a creamy, fluffy texture that would work well in a variety of dishes. All in all, using the Chefman 6-in-1 to make mayonnaise is a quick-and-easy process, and the same should be true for any other emulsified sauces.

  • Emulsifying Time: 1 min 30 secs
  • Result: Smooth
  • Suction: No

Emulsifying with the blending shaft, this Chefman cordless blender passed the mayonnaise test within a minute and a half, which was slightly faster than average. The final mayonnaise looked smooth and was well emulsified, sharing a similar texture with those produced by a whisk attachment.

5.0

Almond Milk

8.5
Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1 Immersion Blender Almond Milk
  • Grinding Time: 1 min 50 secs
  • Result: Coarse
  • Suction: Tightly

The Chefman 6-in-1 created a serving of non-dairy milk in nearly two minutes. It didn’t blend as finely as some other blenders, such as the Chefman Cordless, so the drink it produced was neither the creamiest nor the richest in almond flavor. Nevertheless, this blender can still get the job done and help you skip store-bought versions. It’s always nice to set yourself up for fresher alternatives right at home.

  • Grinding Time: 1 min 10 secs
  • Result: Very Fine
  • Suction: Yes

The Chefman cordless device may not be a bad option when you’re making nut milk. Just make sure to use a blending beaker with sufficient capacity. 

Our drink was creamy and packed with characteristic almond flavor so we think you will love it as much as we do. During our test, the blender did, unfortunately, suction itself to the beaker's bottom, causing the mixture to splatter every time we moved the blending wand. However, this wasn’t only about the suction — things would work better if we used a larger beaker.

Whipped Egg-Whites

  • Beating Time: 1 min 30 secs
  • Result: Stiff
  • Suction: No

Our eggs turned into an airy, fluffy foam that was stiff enough to stick to the bowl’s sides. Even when we turned the foam upside down, it didn’t fall out. Indeed, this blender’s whisk attachment made meringue a simple and fun exercise.

  • Beating Time: N/A
  • Result: N/A
  • Suction: N/A

This machine’s blending shaft was unable to beat the eggs, but it shares this shortcoming with most blending shafts. If you want your machine to properly whip the eggs, we recommend choosing one that comes with a whisk attachment, such as the Braun MultiQuick-5. A whisk’s many thin wires will uncurl the protein strands of the egg whites and incorporate air into them. That way, stiff eggy peaks are able to form and stay stable.

Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1 Immersion Blender Build Quality

The Chefman 6-in-1’s medium-grade construction may not impress you, but we assure it is durable enough for regular use. The blending attachments all attach securely to the motor body, so they’re unlikely to separate while in operation. Like us, you may not like the metal blade housing which will easily scratch your cookware’s surface. For better or worse, though, it's a common feature to help avoid food splatter.

The Chefman Cordless Immersion Blender Build Quality

The Chefman provides a medium level of quality at a very reasonable price. With a black-clad exterior all around, the motor looks charming and notably elegant. After a course of testing, we found a smattering of tiny scratches around this part, but they’re not too noticeable unless you look closely.

You control this blender’s multiple speeds by varying the pressure on the trigger switch in front. The harder you press, the faster the blade will spin. There is also the safety lock button on the device’s rear. Both buttons must be engaged before the motor will turn. Fortunately, both of them are very sensitive, so you won’t need much pressure to get the job done. 

Your Chefman doesn’t have a pulse function, but you can still chop food evenly by pressing and releasing the buttons in short intervals.

The blending shaft is sensibly built with a two-prong blade assembly. The blades look sturdy, but their metal housing somehow wound up with several black dots after our rigorous testing procedure. The blade housing is meant to keep splashing to a minimum, but it has room for improvement. It still allowed some liquid to squirt through the openings on the sides.

The whole blending shaft is made of standard stainless steel, but after several uses, we nevertheless found a small rust spot on the blade guard. We’ve tested a myriad of immersion blenders and noticed that rust is rare. We can’t say for sure whether the rust will spread, but if it does, the machine’s integrity and appearance will be severely impaired. 

The level of craftsmanship of the blade guard is okay overall but it could stand some improvements. The holes in the guard, for instance, look non-uniform and slightly misshapen. 

The blade has two prongs: one is sharp and the other is dull. It’s sturdy enough to puree nearly all kinds of soft foods. It can even make quick work of emulsifying, so you can prepare mayonnaise or any other sauce that needs a creamy, stable base.

Ease of Use

8.8

This Chefman is perfectly comfortable to use one-handed. The buttons are relatively stiff, but they’re responsive and do give us a good sense of control. 

In our tests, this blender acted like a vacuum at the bottom of the beaker, so we got some splatter whenever we moved it around. If the container’s sides were tall enough, though, our blending experience would have been notably better. 

Food tends to cling to the blade guard’s holes. As a result, you’ll probably need to use a food scraper to clean it up every now and then.

Maneuvering the Chefman is particularly easy and usually doesn’t splatter ingredients around. With the exception of the almond milk test, we didn’t have much trouble with our blending motions; this blender suctioned itself only lightly to the beaker’s bottom. 

Most of our testers also praised its pressure-sensitive speed controller, though a few got frustrated trying to switch between mid-range speeds. Either way, it does take some time to get a feel for the speed controls. 

The removable plastic guard covers the metal blade housing to minimize scratches on your pots and pans. With it in place, you can be less timid with your motions.

Blade Assembly

9.5

The Chefman 6-in-1 features a simple locking mechanism so blending attachments are very easy to attach or remove. To connect them, you simply insert the motor body into the attachment, then twist until the two units click together.

The shaft-release button not only helps reinforce the connection between the motor housing and the blending wand, but it also allows for easier disassembly. Simply press this button and pull the blending wand to separate the two parts. Setting up the blender is straightforward as well; align the motor body housing with the blending shaft and push them together until you hear them click.

Handling

9.0
Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1 Immersion Blender Handling

The handle doesn’t have a grippy silicon layer like some, but it is ergonomically designed to ensure a comfortable grip, which eases hand fatigue while you’re blending. We can’t call this Chefman the most practical blender out there, but it shouldn’t cause problems.

Our Chefman let us blend in comfort thanks to the ergonomically designed handle. It didn’t get slippery even when our hands were oily during the mayonnaise test. The stable grip it provides is meaningful, especially if your hands fatigue quickly.

8.5

Cleanability

8.0

All the pieces are safe to put in the dishwasher except for the motor body. Unless you’re short on time, however, you’ll want to wash them manually — they’ll last longer that way. 

We cleaned the blending wand and the whisk attachment by hand and appreciated how easily food tailings wiped away. The only inconveniences were the blades’ backsides which we found quite difficult to get our hands into; you will need a bottle brush to simplify cleanup.

All removable parts are top-rack dishwasher safe, but we prefer to clean them by hand since it’s faster and practically effortless. Following each test, we scrubbed away the food tailings with a soapy sponge. Most of the residue rinsed off easily, including the bits stuffed up behind the blades.
