If there’s one brand that knows its way around luxury cooking experiences better than any other, it’s Vitamix. Compared with other hand-held versions, including the  UTALENT 5-in-1, this blender is similar in operation but it manages to produce smoother results, proving itself a peerless immersion blender with an exceptionally powerful motor and outstanding ease of operation.

Efficiency aside, both the UTALENT 5-in-1 and the Vitamix 5-speed tend to produce quite a mess during blending. Although their heads are designed with grooves to reduce splatters, if you lift them out of the liquid, or even near the top, it’s a sure bet you’ll end up with a mess.
