Unsanitary! Poor design makes cleaning impossible.

Pros:Immersible hand blenders are a great invention.

Cons:The poor design of the plastic casing causes food to get stuck inside!

The Bottom Line: I would recommend getting a nicer model that can be cleaned more easily. You get what you pay for!


The Hamilton Beach hand blender, Model 59770, is a great idea with a design flaw.  I love having an immersible blender.  It is indespensible for blending soup in a pot without having to transfer it to a conventional blender, then back again to re-warm.  It makes cream sauces and gravies as smooth as silk.  But, when food gets stuck inside the blender and can't be cleaned out, it makes the blender unusable.

I purchased this blender about seven months ago.  I used to have a $10 blender and loved it; I got this one to replace that one when it broke.  It has two speeds, high and low. You need to hold down the button continuously, which I suppose is a safety feature since the blade is exposed. It has two attachments, a small whisk and a blending wand. It fits fairly easily into a drawer.  From almost the first use, the clear plastic casing above the blade on the blending wand attachment got some food particles stuck inside.  There was absolutely no way to get this food out.  It looked like the particles were stuck inside a threaded (screw-on) cap.  However, the casing is not made to come apart.   The last time I used it I blended soup with it.  When I subsequently cleaned it, it got some disgusting brownish water stuck inside the casing.  I'm too disgusted to use it again.

To Hamilton Beach's credit, when I emailed them describing the problem, they replied within a few hours to say the new part would be on its way in 5-15 days.

I think my previous blender had opaque, white plastic.  It probably had food stuck inside it as well.

I will update my review in a few weeks after I get the new part.  I hope I got the one and only flawed part, but I know from experience that you get what you pay for.  If I want one as nice as my parents' I'll just have to spend over $100 like they did!
