I remember the first time I ever used a hand blender, it was about ten years ago. I have used it nearly every day since then. I like to blend my coffee with coconut milk and make it frothy and creamy (almost like if you would have steamed the milk). I also use it to blend soups and make applesauce, as well as make my cream sauces very smooth. When my daughter was an infant, my hand blender allowed me to make homemade baby food effortlessly.
I used my hand blender for many years and after it bit the dust I purchased a the new version of it. I was very disappointed.
I really have no idea how an older, less-expensive hand blender could have been better – but it was. The popular name-brand hand blender I purchased was impossible to use because you had to hold a top button down and a side button at the same time. How can you hold the handle of a pot/dish and rotate it while you have to use two fingers on the same hand to push oddly placed buttons?

After reviewing the Mealthy StainlessSteel Frying Pan, I looked at all the products on their site to discover what else I could fall in love with. I had paid about $35 for the hand blender that wasn’t working for me, so when I found that the Mealthy HandBlend was the same price, I requested one.
I didn’t even notice that it came with other gadgets.
The first time I used the HandBlend I was making a casserole. I do not use cans of creamed soup, rather I make my own. After sautéing mushrooms and onions to make a homemade version of mushroom soup, I add bone broth and then typically dump in my blender to blend it all up and then pour it back in my pot.
Not only does it leave me with chunks when I use my blender, my pan has cooled off by then, which can be problematic. This time I used my hand blender/immersion stick and blended it to be as smooth as butter – no chunks and my pan stayed hot! I couldn’t do this before because I had to use two hands to press both buttons on my old hand blender.
When you plug the Mealthy HandBlend in it glows a blue color around the top of the handle, which looks really cool, but also reminds you that it’s plugged in. There are two speeds – regular and TURBO. I haven’t used the turbo mode yet as the regular mode was very powerful and did the job perfectly.
What’s nice about this blender is you can attach the whisk stick to it – superb for making homemade whipped cream.
If you decide to try to use this HandBlend to froth your coffee like I do, you will definitely want to use the container that comes with it, otherwise you will spray coffee everywhere with this powerful tool. Ask me how I know that. :-)
The food processor is like an added bonus. The KitchenAid mini food processor that I have does not make single-serving guacamole very well, but the one that comes with the Mealthy HandBlend does. I am able to use one avocado and all the fixings for guacamole and it blends it superbly.
All-in-all this immersion stick is way more powerful than the name-brand model I was using previously. It actually cannot even compare to the awesomeness of the Mealthy HandBlend.
I cannot recommend this enough! Suffice it to say that I know what I will be purchasing as a wedding gift from now on. I do not want to ever be without my Mealthy HandBlend.
Mealthy ranks high on my list for high-quality kitchen products. I love the CrispLid, which turns your Instant Pot or other pressure cooker into an air fryer and their stainless steel pan is our favorite. I cannot wait to see what comes out next!
