KitchenAid KHBBV53 vs Hamilton Beach 59765 Immersion

Overall Verdict

The KitchenAid KHBBV53 is a cordless immersion blender, featuring a battery-efficient motor and variable speed options. In terms of performance, it far outstrips the Hamilton Beach 59765, passing four out of the five tests with quite acceptable results.

We also particularly prefer the KitchenAid’s stylish design and solid build quality, though it would be considerably more attractive if our blender's blade guard isn’t naturally flaked with countless black spots. Nevertheless, we believe the KitchenAid KHBBV53 to still be worth an extra $60 over the Hamilton Beach 59765, especially if you want greater mobility and a more pleasant blending experience.
