What the top rechargeable (i.e. cordless) hand blenders will do for you.

A hand blender is already a great convenience tool… with all the blending, puréeing, chopping and whisking tasks it can do for you, and not taking up much counter space (or none if you store it in the drawer !).

A cordless hand blender is even more convenient, without even a lead ( an electric cord) to worry about. The cord can be a real pain as it dips into food, drags things with it. You’d be surprised how often kitchens are designed without a convenient outlet near the stove too ! So sometimes you can’t even reach your food.

This is where the cordless versions come into their own. With most, you charge the battery up, attach it to the stick, and start using it – without the need to be tied to electricity with a cord. Our latest newcomer actually charges with USB and can be used while it’s charging. That’s not the only thing they’ve thought of so until we fill in the complete review below – click over to see it here.

It’s not so easy to find these battery blenders, and you pay a bit more for the privilege of being free from the cord, so we’ve made it easy by choosing and reviewing the best 7, with links to where you can buy them. First, we show you what our research also comes up with, so you get the complete picture online.

1. KitchenAid

The KitchenAid Cordless Hand blenders

We’re going to show you two models. First, the new variable speed simple model that comes with a great sophistication and fabulous options in colours and matching products – but it’s only available right  now in N. America.

Then we take you to the well known 5 speed KitchenAid cordless versions below. It’s known as the KitchenAid Artisan cordless in the UK, Ireland, Germany in fact all of Europe! AND In the USA and Canada, the same product is called the the KitchenAid Pro-line immersion blender.  They are essentially the same model number… a cordless  / battery operated version of KitchenAid’s 5 speed hand blender set.

For all countries, click the Amazon buttons shown below to find the best deal for where you live, as prices can vary country to country.

But first… because it’s exciting, and brand new, and so well received by users…, we have to show you our new find. We all it an entry level model by KitchenAid, and it’s only available in the US and Canada so far.

 

KitchenAid variable speed – new Autumn 2020

I say entry level – the price shows that too, but everything KitchenAid make is such high quality, that the users are loving it.  It’s simple – they say its for soups and it can do a fair number before having to recharge. But users are saying they’re loving the smoothies, milkshakes, and purées too. Some say it comes with a whisk but I’m not completely convinced yet – I’ll ask KitchenAid and get back on that. 

It’s one of a simply beautiful matching set of cordless kitchen items. If I was starting out in a new home, or perhaps a senior I’d go for this simple sophisticated set in a flash. 

kitchenaid variable speed cordless immersion blender

It also comes in fabulous colours as shown below from white to matt black (my favourite), shiny black, charcoal grey, baby blue, a dark and a bright red .

The new matching range of simply cordless products from KitchenAid 

KitchenAid cordless chopper

kitchenaid variable speed cordless immersion blender

What I love most about this is the size, 5 cups, so use it for small creative experiments, but you could also do a great chunky salpicon for supper.

Why not make all your vegetable prep for the week too. It says even comes with a whisk blade!

Users report how quiet it is – I’ve listened and, unlike the usual noisy chopper, it’s more like a whistling wind !

This would be my first choice buy after the cordless hand blender.

KitchenAid cordless hand blender

kitchenaid variable speed cordless immersion blender

My favourite colour – matte black. Like the other KitchenAid blenders, the 8″ blending arm comes off so you can give it a quick rinse.

Great for soups, smoothies, milkshakes, hummus etc etc. The power lead works on all 3 cordless products which is handy.

Comes with the fab KitchenAid pan guard, and a measuring / blending jug & lid. 

KitchenAid cordless mixer

kitchenaid variable speed cordless immersion blender

If you like to whip up lots of dessert or a keen baker, you’ll want this. 

It has 7 speeds and a has a slow start feature. Stands easily on it’s own.

Like the other cordless products in this range, it charges up in just 2 hours, or there’s a 20min quick charge too for all 3 products.

There’s no big battery attached – it’s all within the product so just put the pin in and charge.

The KitchenAid 5 speed cordless hand blender is our top prosumer choice !

Let’s cut to the chase first. Honestly, we love the brand and it’s a brilliant brand in every way, but it isn’t cheap to buy and it falls in between the our annual winners of the best pro grade and best home cook hand blender set. So, whilst KitchenAid cordless didn’t actually make it as our top prosumer hand blender for 2020 ( Bamix took that spot) , the Kitchenaid 5 speed hand blender comes a close second ( electric or cordless ). If we had a cordless category, it would be our number 1.

The cordless model is a quiet and efficient multitasking master of a machine, and is essentially the same specification as the corded 5-speed version from Kitchenaid (on Amazon). It is an award winner anyway even against electric models. John Whaite, Telegraph food writer and former Great British Bake Off champion voted the cordless version his first choice blender out of all hand-blenders.

pros and cons

KitchenAid 5 speed cordless hand blender

L
It´s high end, professional grade spec.
L
Battery-powered blender..so obviously… no annoying cord!
L
Easy to clean with a number of dishwasher safe parts.
L
Cool design, and the KitchenAid Artisan (on Amazon) comes in two gorgeous colours of red or silver.
L
5 speed settings that light up so you know where you are… love that feature.
L
An amazing multi-tasker with all the accessories included, that seem to tackle any task you could think of from frothing milk to ice crushing.
L
It will automatically power down after 60 seconds of not operating or being manually unlocked.
L
A handy hook at the back to hang it up when not in use ( we like this kind of detail).
K
Maybe just the price..but worth it we feel for all those accessories, the plus points above,  and the freedom it gives you to move around.
K
If we are being picky the colours are described a little differently on some sites and its hard to know if the colours have changed or the silver and metallic red is just displayed a little differently. On the official site they are called candy apple red and metallion silver.. sugar pearl silver, a lighter colour appears sometimes online but we love this too!

 2. Waring

 Waring Bolt Cordless

Just the one great product here for you professionals or really keen cooks. Have a look at the WARING BOLT cordless model WSB38X on Amazon, and if you see this model number with an extra ‘2’ on the end it just means it comes with an second 10.8V lithium ion battery pack.

3. Cuisinart

The Cuisinart Cordless Hand blenders

Our winner for always delivering choices, and always great value

Cuisinart are always producing more models, to meet customer needs, where they want it most !  So you may find different models in different regions of the world. They’re all based on the smartstick model, but have 5 speeds, and an extra-long stainless steel shaft so that you can blend easily in hot liquids.

 

How many Cuisinart cordless hand blenders are there ?

The short answer is – we found four. But not all available in every region. We choose the best 3 to show you.

Until October 2018, KitchenAid was the only cordless choice easily available in the UK. Now Cuisinart have developed their most popular model for the UK and Europe. The Cuisinart CSB300U 3 in 1 Cordless Hand Blender, Silver Finish  (includes the blender leg, masher leg, whisk and the charger/stand.)

The CSB300U is a fabulous mid- range model that does all the traditional tasks you’d want a hand blender to do. Like the KitchenAid it has 5 speeds, and 3 attachments for chopping/pureeing/mixing, whisking/frothing and mashing. The masher is also plastic so that you won’t scrape your pots.

The CSB300 sold in N. America is Cuisinart’s their top of the range cordless immersion blender and great value too, and the CSB300U would be the best value cordless hand blender UK.  Outside the UK, you will find similar sets based on the Smart Stick Cuisinart immersion blender.

The CSB400CD is a simpler package that serves as a good solid entry level model with the blending stick and just one extra attachment – the stainless steel fine but strong whisk . You might also find another very similar entry level model in N. America, which has a storage bag and variable speed wheel – it’s called the HB-600PC.

 

Cuisinart vs. KitchenAid

The  Cuisinart CSB-300 (shown on Amazon U.S) variable speed smartstick competes well with the KitchenAid Pro-Line series. Both 5 speed, have a storage case, good support and warranty. 

For what you get though, the Cuisinart is extremely competitively priced given all the attachments that come with it – including an electric knife attachment ( which KitchenAid don’t provide) !

Most recently, KitchenAid is now able to compete really well with the Cuisinart entry level CSB-400CD stick blender. Which would you choose ?!?!?! Let me know in the comments if you can.

 4. Braun

 Braun Multiquick 7 & multiquick 9 Cordless

Our latest find on cordless models is from Braun. As usual though with Braun, it takes a long time to investigate the models, which are still made, supported, and sold all over the world. We love Braun, it’s an excellent brand so we plod on and will bring you the results when we are happy with our findings. Braun appear to make a cordless model in both the MultiQuick 7 series and the MultiQuick 9 series. There are two corresponding model names – the MR730cc or 740cc, and the MQ930cc or 940cc models. They’re quite elusive!

It’s hard to find them to buy… but you can click through and check what’s available on Amazon US here.  The 730cc / 930cc seems to come with a small charging base and 500ml chopper only, and some Braun sites state it is no longer available. So the MR 740cc and MQ 940cc seem to be the more comprehensive model to buy in our opinion.

The MQ940cc is the most recent and the highest specification that is available in the UK, Europe, US and Canada.
It’s a cool black stick blender on a sleek looking charger which also functions as a stand for the blender. The set includes a tall chopper ice crushing jug (1.25ml), the 500ml chopper and the beaker. The MQ40 tall chopper jug alone is an ideal 3 in 1 machine with its chopper, ice crusher and jug blender !

The best things about this Braun for sale is that users report that although it seems to come with a European plug, it  works great with a simple US plug convertor. You’ll still have to use your hand whisk though unless you can add the Braun MQ10 accessory to the set. From user reviews it sounds like it works with all the attachments from the MultiQuick 7  / 9 series! There is a  very long and interesting review on the MQ 904cc on Amazon U.Sthat is well worth reading, it talks about the user getting both the MQ 777 and the MQ 940cc together to build the most comprehensive hand blender set EVER !

The same MQ 940cc model is listed in all countries too –   I wish we had seen this before now ! Click over here to Amazon to find yours.


The Braun cordless

Sadly, this Braun cordless model is quite elusive, and you might find it’s unavailable when you click through. In fact, we’re finding it more unavailable than available – and Amazon is the best site to check this. So our advice is… if it’s available – GET IT – and you won’t regret it.

 

Key features of the Braun cordless blender

i
Comes with a charging unit you can use to both recharge & store your hand blender
i
The 1250ml big chopper accessory is a real 3 in 1: it acts as a chopper, ice crusher and jug blender
i
Includes the Braun PowerBell for fast and perfect results

Cord or no cord

What cordless means

cordless handblender image

Rechargeable, battery operated

Cordless ( sometimes known as wireless in the U.S.) , rechargeable battery operated models do the same jobs as the corded electric ones – they’re just more portable… indoors, outdoors, abroad !

 

Do cordless hand blenders do the same job as electric hand blenders

They are all hand held blenders or processors used to mix and stir, blend and purée, mash and beat. They produce the same results from smoothies, juices, baby foods and soups. Do be though aware that some cordless ( not the ones covered in this article ) hand held blenders such as the Mueller Austria Ultra-Stick 500 are essentially only electric whisks.

 

Are cordless hand blenders better ?

They’re definitely a little easier to use, because you don’t have to have a socket nearby to plug in, and if you are moving internationally you don’t need to worry about the electric supply. However, they can sometime be a little heavier because of the attached battery pack of course – but we think it’s worth it.  It’s on our wish-list !

5 great reasons to go with a cordless, rechargeable stick blender

 

For safety's sake

… or you´re a messy cook !

Who likes having to wipe the soup off the cord? Or have it mess up your apron or worse still your pale trousers as you move it around! Worse still, you could burn it over the hob. (If you continually find soup splatter on your ceiling, or a lightly browned hand blender cord it might be worth looking at our post on how to use a hand blender )

You like to travel

… or you’re so addicted to using your immersion blender

that it will cross your mind to take it on holiday with you, and why not! It´s so handy. Even better if you are travelling by car,  as it won’t be an extra burden in packing the hand luggage.

 

You're camping !

… you don’t have access to electricity

A cordless immersion blender would be a great asset if you are camping, or in a caravan. Even in our little holiday bungalow, electricity is restricted so we can’t have everything on at the same time – oven, and more than 1 ring on the hob ! Having a cordless handblender, pre-charged would help a lot.

 

You have a small kitchen

… or maybe you’re a tidy cook, and just have a need to be self contained.

If you have a small kitchen like us, we can constantly bump into each other. Cooking at the same time is difficult ! We do a kind of dance around food and equipment we need. Just think, if we had a cordless blender, it would be so much easier… we could even blend outside ! We’d love this but but we’ve already invested and can’t just have every piece of equipment we love (it’s time to simplify!)

Power's out

… storms have brought the cables down but you can still have your coffee !

 

Being cordless is such a blessing in this case ! We used to have large inglenook fires and a wood burning stove to cook on in our old UK country home to be ready for power outages. But having a portable BBQ or pizza maker to cook or heat things helps too. 

 

One of our readers is suffering the frequent power outages this year due to summer storms in the Philadelphia region.

 

She told us she couldn’t do without her BBQ to heat water, and this double wall insulated Bodum. I checked it out for you so sharing the love for this cordless gem too – click here to see it either in matt or shiny.

 

 

 

What the cordless blender research shows.

We detail the top 6 battery operated sticks in this article – the best ones, that are currently well supported by reputable companies and great user reviews.

Braun is in this list still, but only just ! It has a great cordless hand blender, but it’s not our no. 1 pick, unless you alreay have a Braun 7 or 9 series hand blender, and has been unavailable for a while now – we’re watching closely and will update here when we have more news.

Our research also brought us cordless hand blenders from Bosch, Phillips and Breville – all top brands too. in fact, Breville is a real star when it comes to our coffee machines – see our latest review  ( open it here in a new window and read that later over a cup of coffee!) But …sadly,  for cordless stick blenders by these brands, the poor user reviews, or lack of support. Or simply the fact that they’re no longer made or stocked means they didn’t make it into our final list.

You might still see many more by other brands too listed online but be aware that they may not even be manufactured or supported any longer so be careful !

The other annoying thing about research online is that even if you search for ‘cordless’ it will bring up many more hand blenders for you and it’s not always easy to see if they’re corded or battery powdered. I’ve ended up writing to some manufacturers just to be double sure.

So rest assured I’ve research this endlessly for you. Now read on to find my new exciting find, by KitchenAid.

 

Cordless whisks and mixers

 

You will also see a lot of cordless hand held mixers ( the older style we used to use for baking in the 70s !), as opposed to hand blender sticks. But you’ll also find something a bit more modern and lightweight, like these 2 top cordless whisks (one has a lifetime guarantee ! , the other charged via USB port ). These are usually just strong enough for frothing coffee, or beating an egg. Brilliant at what they do, but not covered in detail this article. If that’s all you’re looking for, go ahead and click on the next picture to take you through to the one in your country.  click over here to see our favourite few across the globe .

 

Which ones would we recommend buying today ?

conclusion

{

It is true to say that there aren’t too many on the market… and going cordless is not the top priority for everyone. So, in 2018, we found just three main contenders. In 2019, the numbers we are finding have just about doubled ! By 2020, it’s getting pared back again to the KitchenAid vs Cuisinart choice.

 

HOW WE CHOSE

In 2018, KitchenAid was our clear winner, but now … although it still pips the others to the winning post as the most popular, pretty, and professional cordless stick blender… now there are more great battery operated, cordless blenders to choose from!

There are now choices to suit varying budgets, styles, and even your brand loyalty !

We’re going to rule out Waring, as a domestic cook’s machine, because whilst the Bolt hand bender its amazing – it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you might want at home. Looking at the reviews, it looks like you can’t get extra attachments – not even a whisk ! It’s more a commercial beast, a purist’s blender.

However, whilst Waring had introduced a new higher end competitor with the powerful professional angle, we discovered that Cuisinart, the big old competitor to KitchenAid in the U.S. , launched another well priced home cook model in the UK. Now it’s also available in the US and Canada. 

It’s a really good looking set which competes well with KitchenAid and other corded models too in the domestic, or household market. It’s neatly packed in a countertop stand. Of course, it has less attachments (notably missing a chopper bowl) than the KitchenAid , but is offered at a much lower price point, so seems to be tackling a different market altogether. This is in line with the conclusions we reached in our corded hand blender Cuisinart vs Kitchenaid post.

We’re also great fans of Braun, but are going to rule it out, sadly, because the availability is so variable and so low. As a consumer I’d be wondering if they’re still manufacturing it !

So move over KitchenAid 5 speed cordless…
our wonderful winner for pro level blender with consistent quality, functionality and support.It is might powerful, just like the KitchenAid corded 5 speed model. It has lots of extra bells and whistles like 2 blender legs of different lengths, blender ends for all the different tasks, chopper bowl, and it can crush ice.

The first place is now tied with the Cuisinart 

Filling a long awaited gap in the UK market, and serving it’s loyal users in the US, and now we found it for you in Australia too.

You’ll find a great Cuisinart model now in each country – we’ll take you through to the entry level ( only in the US and CA will you find another model – the CSB300 top of the range). They’re all great value for money, sleek, and have everything you need at each level, except maybe a chopping bowl in the mid level, but the shaft is very long, has a safety lock like the KitchenAid, and a better plastic masher leg so your pots won’t get hurt, not to mention the 5 year guarantee – check in your country for that !

    I cannot find the Kitchenaid Cordless Mixer. If you click on the “See it on Amazon” button, it brings up another product.

    Please can you give me another route? I’m in the UK but will purchase and ship from anywhere.

      Hi Michael, I’m not sure which button you might be clicking. I’ve just had a look. if I click on the KitchenAid 5 speed cordless it takes me to Amazon UK to a cream coloured version but shows the product unavailable. The corded version should be available though.
      If I click the new KitchenAid hand blender Amazon button, it doesn’t even show a UK Amazon to click because it’s only available in the US & Canada.
      I’ve written an update to show that it’s so hard to get any KitchenAid cordless at the moment. I don’t think it works for me as an affiliate, but for you, you should be able to click on any country button and buy from Amazon. Just check first that it will ship to your address / country. I’m in Spain at the moment, and if I look at a product on Amazon say in the US then it says whether it will ship to Spain or not. Just be aware of the electrical specs. of products in other countries as they may not work in your country.
      Actually I have just looked again, and the KitchenAid isn’t available in Europe either. It’s why the Cuisinart is now so popular in the UK !!
      Sorry. I’ll keep checking and update the page.

      Hi Michael, I’m not sure which button you might be clicking. I’ve just had a look. if I click on the KitchenAid 5 speed cordless it takes me to Amazon UK to a cream coloured version but shows the product unavailable. The corded version should be available though.
      If I click the new KitchenAid hand blender Amazon button, it doesn’t even show a UK Amazon to click because it’s only available in the US & Canada.
      I’ve written an update to show that it’s so hard to get any KitchenAid cordless at the moment. I don’t think it works for me as an affiliate, but for you, you should be able to click on any country button and buy from Amazon. Just check first that it will ship to your address / country. I’m in Spain at the moment, and if I look at a product on Amazon say in the US then it says whether it will ship to Spain or not. Just be aware of the electrical specs. of products in other countries as they may not work in your country.

      Hi again Michael, I’ve just re-read your question ! I may have mis-read it. Sounds like you’re looking for the new mixer that comes with new KitchenAid cordless set. They’re only available in the US and CA. However, I think I know what’s happening because this is what happens to me. UK isn’t displayed ok because it’s not available. If I hit the Canada button I get through to the mixer in Amazon CA – fine. If I hit US, it redirects me to Amazon.es because that’s where I am located – and it shows a different product. Somehow it seems that the US site is set up like that- It’s only been happening to me since this summer and I don’t know why. Sorry. I’m going to keep trying in Europe and will add one there on my buttons as soon as it appears.

        I am trying to decide between kitchen aid cordless / cuisine art cordless or bamix swissline. If you were buying one now – which one would you get? D

          Ooooh what a question ! I’d like all three Dolly, for different reasons. So I’ll tell you mine and see if you identify with any – then you’ll know your choice. I have all three brands in my own kitchen but not all for the hand blender ! I just happened to have decided on each at different times in the past… before I started this blog and learned all about the brands.
          The Cuisinart is most budget friendly I feel, and the top version has the electric carver. ( My parents used to have one for Sunday roasts and frozen things ). I have just been trying to cut a sourdough loaf this morning and I’m useless – I’m one of those people that can’t cut straight so I’d use it for that !
          So Cuisinart I personally buy for convenience and budget ! They’re worth it, and they work. I have a Cuisinart chopping bowl from the past and its brilliant, budget, but very noisy. I love their latest cordless models, so if Cordless is your priority I’d go for that. It will take you so far … ie you can’t add to it with the attachments. I was just looking at the UK model yesterday and loving the midnight blue version, that’s pretty much the colour I have in the Bamix ( the Jamie Oliver colour).
          KitchenAid I find ‘beautiful’ and high quality, and they are specialists in what they do. They don’t confuse with too many models. The 5 speed will do everything you need forever I think. Everything reeks quality and well though through design ( to look at and to hold ). With that I usually find they are heavier and will probably be heirlooms ! They hold their value for me. When I think KitchenAid I also think Smeg. I’d go for the 5 speed or cordless version. Paul loves the KitchenAid I think even more than me. I love Bamix more than him.
          Bamix… is my latest ‘forever’ love! I’m the engineer /artist by background. For me Bamix is quite minimalist. Bamix are the hand blender specialists whilst the other two makes are kitchen appliance specialists. It’s top notch like the KitchenAid, but easy and more lightweight than KitchenAid to hold. I like the models with the curly cable as I don’t like cables dangling into food ! So I feel halfway toward a cordless. I have a small kitchen and I am very tempted by cordless but I also don’t want my device to be too cumbersome. The Bamix works for me. You HAVE to have a stand as i find it so important to be in the habit of hanging it up to avoid damaging it.
          What I love about the Bamix is the little disks that work as mixer, whisk and aerator. They are so much smaller than the extra blending legs that all other brands use. Cute and easy to use. you have to line them up right when you put them on though, it’s a seroius too. You get used to using them, and the power of the Swissline is amazing. The chopping bowl ( the processor ) is also small. I like to grind spices so the powder disk that works with it is my favourite piece. So Bamix are the total specialist for me. Sadly Bamix don’t do cordless though – I’d be in heaven if they did !
          So can you decide your priority ?
          If it’s cordless, than Bamix is not an option. Cuisinart is a great value machine and KitchenAid is the highest quality that will do everything for you in the long run but perhaps a little heavier to hold.
          If it’s budget, I would go for Cuisinart or the highest quality Bamix you can get for your money ( 160w minimum if you can eg deluxe model that way you can add to it ).Check out my ‘bamix bargain’ button on the bamix range page to see if that fits.
          Gosh, that’s an essay , but I hope it helps.
