The Bottom Line: Quick, Easy, Affordable, handy stick blender.


A year or so ago I needed to get a new stick blender. I found this one for around $20 (cheap!) - it was the only model the store had in stock besides the model I previously had killed. Ironically the one I was replacing was an expensive model that I burnt out in short order. Since I wasn't doing that again,  I figured I'd try this inexpensive Turbo Twister model and if it was bad I wasn't out all that much money.

I use this Hamilton Beach "Turbo Twister" handheld (stick) blender regularly and have yet to see the need to replace it with something more expensive. To use - select your attachment (wand or wisk), twist it on and then plug the blender in. Immerse and then press either HI or LO.  When done, unplug and then handwash the attachment.


I have found that the wisk is only good in a narrow and deep container. I tried to use it one time for cookies instead of my mixer and it literally sprayed the dough mixture around the room so I am very cautious with the wisk attachment.  Most often, I use the standard stick blender "wand" style attachment. This one makes quick work of soups, mashed/whipped potatoes and fruit purees.  I regularly make fresh applesauce for the kids and always make home-made potatoes.   I love that I can use this right in same pot I have used for cooking and have never had any problem with it scratching the surfaces. The noise-level is comparable to my mixer but quieter than a traditional blender or smoothie machine. Also, the instructions say not to use this with ice but I have and it works fine for a smoothie. I imagine that using it with ice just dulls the blades quicker.

The attachments are easily cleaned up though it is important to note that they are not dishwasher safe. In case you forget, you really can't because they say across them in big letters to not place in the dishwasher. This is a minor inconvenience but not a big deal. The shaft of the stick blender is clear so you can see when it is clean - I have on occasion had food get into it but that came out after soaking in some hot soapy water.

All in all, I am pleased with this basic stick blender that has made preparing healthy and savory dishes so easy for me. When people hear that I've made home-made whipped potatoes or home-made applesauce they would have no idea that it literally took just a few minutes of work using this stick blender. This is like my little secret weapon in the kitchen. And now, I can't imagine how my life was before having a working stick blender.
