Coloured hand blenders – red, white, or pink ?
? Which hand blender colour is your favourite ?
Our top choices for the best hand blenders to buy are all available in white, except the Bamix gastro 200 and 350 ( only a light grey or black), and the Braun MQ 9087x (only in silver). The Bamix SwissLine and Superbox winners are also available in many other colours.
If it´s white, you are in luck because practically every company sells a classic white model. Bamix, Kenwood, Bosch, Tefal, Russell Hobs, Moulinex, Braun, Morphy Richards, and Breville… to mention just a few of the top names alone. Given that their basic models also tend to come in a cheap plastic, white is often the colour they choose most often! The Russell Hobbs 22241 got our vote for the best white back to basics model – it only comes in white.
After stainless steel, I’d say this is our own next favourite kitchen accessory colour. Again it is provided in many, but not all brands. Bamix, the brand that won our best professional model, do a lovely Swissline red here in the UK… and many more colours too! (incorporating the Swiss flag of course). (In the USA, it is the Bamix Bar mix set , in Australia it is the Bamix Mono). Kitchenaid feature a whole range of their products in red, including their immersion blender. They even sell both electric and cordless models in this favourite colour. Russell Hobbs, Bosch and Morphy Richards also feature a red version, and the latest addition to the party here with its beautiful curvy 50’s retro 700W model is Smeg, seen here on Amazon UK. (For our USA friends, here is the link for the Smeg on Amazon.com). It is quite a substantial size to hold, and although it doesn’t detail it, it usually comes with a bigger capacity jug than the other models.
You get two colour choices in one category here! Light (a paler baby pink) or dark (usually raspberry pink). We love both of these. Bamix Colorline is essentially the Swissline range but with 18 different colours – baby pink is one. There’s a company called Emperial that does a baby pink 3 in 1 juicer, blender, mixer, very inexpensive on amazon! It’s probably aimed at the ‘my first blender’ girly market. There are also a lot of little cheap pink mini frothers around.
The Taurus Robot 500 (click that red text link to check it out in the UK. ) does a nice job of white with bright pink accents. Cuisinart of course stock pink – they are the colour queens after all (see ** note below) ! Not many Cuisinart hand blenders are available in the UK, but in the USA you can see the pink ones here. In Australia you can buy the pretty Excelvan set here. Bosch also show a dark pink model.
Other Colours… or no colour
After red, white, and pink, it is black (UK link) and silver that are the next most popular.
Stainless steel is the best silver to have of course and you will find that mostly on the more commercial models, but Dualit also do a good looking and easy to hold 700W hand blender with a high end plastic finish that mimics the look of chrome. (UK only)
Vintage retro hand blender colours
Finally, the other popular colours seem to be designed for the retro vintage look blenders. They come in cream by Smeg and Kitchenaid, and pastels of blue and green by Smeg, Russell Hobbs, Swan, and Breville.
Globally, it looks like Bamix are the leaders now in the range of colours they offer. It used to be Cuisinart from the U.S. that had a mighty range of 17 colours between their smartstick CB-75 and 76 ranges, but now it looks like they have cut back to just five (white, red, metallic red, brushed chrome, and pink blenders).
