KitchenAid Cordless vs. Chefman Vegetable Slicer 6-in-1: Comparison by Hands-on Tests

Overall Verdict

The KitchenAid is a nice choice for a cordless immersion blender. In our tests, it handled frozen fruits pretty well, churning out a smoothie that was better than most. The results were also the same for the tests of hot soup and non-dairy milk. Other than a lack of whipping capability, there was not much to complain about regarding the KitchenAid KHBBV53’s performance.

We think the Chefman’s pricing is attractive, especially considering its long list of included accessories. But in terms of performance, this blender did not really stand out. The products it produced weren’t all bad, but they were slightly below average for the class.
