  • Performance (50%)7.9

These two blenders are competing for different customers. As a battery-powered device, the KitchenAid KHBBV53 is an ideal option for those demanding maximum mobility. The KOIOS 4-in-1, however, must be operated close to a power outlet and is more suitable for budget-focused buyers.

That difference aside, both the KitchenAid KHBBV53 and the KOIOS 4-in-1 perform averagely when pureeing hot soup, blending frozen fruits, and making mayonnaise. Their usability is also roughly the same. 

Certainly, the choice between the KOIOS 4-in-1 and the KitchenAid KHBBV53 is more about your need for mobility than any other factor.

Pros & Cons

  • Extra attachments are included for a wider range of tasks.
  • It is easy to attach, remove, and clean the blending accessories.

  • Ergonomically-designed handle provides secure grip
  • Simple battery charging 
  • The included pan guard will prevent damage to non-stick cookware.
  • The blade guard can cause damage to the cookware’s surface.
  • The motor rating is 400 watts rather than its advertised rating of 800 watts.
  • Its performance is often inconsistent
  • Not as efficient as other similar blenders
