The capability of both blenders is nondescript, but if you have to choose between them, we recommend considering the Chefman 6-in-1. Although this blender isn’t a heavy performer that will get your prepping done in a hurry, it is rather good for all sorts of simple blends, whereas, the Hamilton Beach 2-Speed is incapable of emulsifying mayonnaise and also very mediocre in blending frozen fruits and beating egg whites.

Regarding the Hamilton Beach design, lots of the plastic parts feel a bit cheap for the price point. Meanwhile, the build quality of the Chefman 6-in-1 is not great, but at least you will get a more sturdy model.

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

In this test, the Hamilton Beach produced an acceptably smooth puree, but the outcome wasn’t any better than those produced by other immersion blenders we’ve found for under $40. It was blended evenly but we still noticed a lot of tiny veggie chunks left behind after straining.

5.0

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: 2 mins 15 secs
  • Result: Chunky and Leafy
  • Suction: Slightly

Of all the blenders we tested, this Hamilton Beach took the longest to complete this task. It was such a poor performer that had a very hard time processing frozen fruits and couldn’t entirely liquefy kale. In the end, we were left behind with a lumpy icy drink and worse still, a bunch of large noticeable fibrous pieces remained unprocessed.

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: N/A
  • Result: N/A
  • Suction: N/A

Making mayonnaise with this blender’s whisk attachment was a total failure. Even when we added the oil very slowly to the yolks, there was no way that the blender could form a proper emulsion. Instead of a smooth spread, we ended up with a watery mess. As such, we awarded it no points for this test.

5.0

Almond Milk

6.8
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.

Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion Almond Milk
  • Grinding Time: 1 min 40 secs
  • Result: Coarse
  • Suction: Tightly

Using this Hamilton Beach to make nut milk may not be such a good idea: In our test, it left us with a coarse grind and couldn’t pull all the ingredients into its blades without our intervention. That’s why we had to constantly stir with the blending wand to ensure everything was incorporated. This also meant that, due to the machine’s poor head suction, we would end up getting splattered with smoothie every single time our hand moved. 

At certain points, the almonds somehow even got stuck in the blade guard’s holes, requiring us to stop and dislodge them. This remains the most frustrating blending experience that we’ve ever had.

Whipped Egg-Whites

5.0

Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1 Immersion Blender Whipped Egg-Whites 1
  • 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.

Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion Whipped Egg-Whites
  • Beating Time: 3 min 22 secs
  • Result: Stiff
  • Suction: No

Surprisingly, this blender’s whisk attachment did a good job of stiffening the egg white. When beating, it provided enough force to stretch out the egg’s proteins which then bonded with each other and formed a stable network around the tiny air bubbles created through the beating action.

However, strengthening that network for a good stiff peak can be a lengthy process. The Hamilton Beach took more than one minute - compared with others, that's longer than the average. Having to spend a few more minutes blending is no big deal, but the prolonged operation will cause the motor to overheat, thus impairing its durability and your cooking enjoyment.

This Chefman device is the same size as most hand blenders, so it should be comfortable for most people to use, even for extended periods. So far, we haven’t encountered any challenges caused by its length or weight.

This Hamilton Beach looks compact on our counter and takes up less space than any of the full-sized blenders we’ve had. Its blending shaft and main motor body can be separated so you can easily store them when not in use. It also feels balanced in our hands with an ideal weight for most home cooks. For the most part, we agree it is quite easy to maneuver this machine in a mixing beaker.

Build Quality

6.0
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.

Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion Build Quality

Compared to other low-range blenders we purchased, this Hamilton Beach is similar in features, operation, and capabilities, but it isn’t as good on every front due to its poorly-built construction.

Made of low-range plastic, the motor body takes on food stains and discoloration over time while the inner core is very breakable. The two thin plastic tabs that help connect the blending attachment to the main housing also leave much to be desired. With use, they will possibly snap, thus rendering your blender useless. Another word of caution: this machine has a tendency to overheat like it is burning up.

This blender runs at two different speeds. The two buttons on the front allow you to shift between speed options. Both are quite responsive and the motor accelerates seamlessly. We noticed a clear change in the blade’s rotation speed, but it wasn’t jarring.

The machine has two buttons: the power button operates the blender at the normal speed and the turbo button provides a temporary speed boost. Both buttons are unresponsive to gentle presses requiring considerable pressure to be activated. During the more prolonged procedures, we experienced challenging and painful blending.

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.

At only 6.9 inches, the blending shaft is quite short and may not be suitable to immerse in your deep pot. With a sharp, metal blade guard, it seriously damaged our beaker and was incapable of reducing head suction in all of its tests. The 2-pronged blade is designed flimsily. It looks inferior and has a shorter length compared to other low-range blenders. This results in quite coarse blends and longer working time.

After two rounds of testing, we found this attachment is completely inefficient. Measuring only 4.3 inches long, it is comparatively short and its wires are too stiff to provide enough ‘bounce’. We certainly wouldn't recommend using this whisk.

We haven't performed any tests on the chopper attachment, so we can't say for sure how well it works. Considering the blender’s power rating, however, it should be capable of chopping small quantities of fresh veggies or raw nuts.

Ease of Use

5.8

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.

The Hamilton Beach 59765 is not easy to use;  it often feels a bit brittle during even simple tasks, and that isn’t indicative of all low-priced immersion blenders. It is also more of a pain to use with a violent shaking motor and unresponsive controls. 

Furthermore, we found our machine got extremely hot when it was working at high speeds toward an extended blending time. It is unclear if this issue is likely to shorten the blender’s lifespan, but it will surely bring you a

few minutes of discomfort.

9.0

Blade Assembly

8.0

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.

To set up this blender, the attachment must be rotated to a specific alignment to lock into place with the main housing. So far, we haven't found any difficulty in doing so, since both these two pieces are clearly marked with padlock icons, eliminating our guesswork for the correct alignment.

7.5

Handling

6.5
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.

Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion Handling

Compared with others, this handle is smaller and less comfortable to hold. While it fits okay in our small hands, it cannot ensure a stable, secure grip due to its slippery surface. 

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.

Removing all the food tailings from the blades’ backsides was pretty frustrating. Due to the restricted space between the blade and its guard, we couldn’t get our fingers in for scrubbing.
