I have had the same hand blender for the past decade. I use it often and it’s one of my favorite tools in the kitchen. It has some problems – it’s difficult to clean, the speed choices aren’t always what I need, and occasionally it over-heats. I had no idea how far this appliance had or could advance until I tried out the Phillips Pro-Mix Hand Blender. Wow!
At first sight, I love the look of the Phillips Pro-Mix. Its sleek metal is attractive and unlike the old plastic bodied warhorse I’ve been using – it won’t stain! The wand was also longer than my old hand blender – perfect for deeper pots of soups and sauces.
Using the Phillips Pro-Mix couldn’t be easier. The device is controlled by what they call “Speed Touch” technology which is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of low-medium-high speed settings, the speed of the Pro-Mix is controlled by how much pressure you use when squeezing the button. I really liked being able to have a high level of control over the blending! I recently made a triple batch of apple butter and I will say that using the Pro-Mix on such a large quantity, my hand did get tired squeezing the control, but the Pro-Mix blender works so well and so fast that I don’t think that would be an issue with 99% of the projects I make.
The blade of the Pro-Mix is designed to create a good flow of food through the blade so that your projects with blend faster and easier. I like that the cupped design at the end of the wand where the blade is housed kept my apple butter from splashing while I was blending it.
The Phillips Pro-Mix Hand blender offers a number of different attachments such as a whisk, double mixer, potato masher and chopper making this sleek and space saving appliance take the place of a number of bulky appliances in your kitchen! The Phillips Pro-Mix Hand Blender would be a perfect gift for an avid cook with a small kitchen.
I am a big fan of the Phillips Pro-Mix Hand Blender. I plan to throw out my old, outdated blender and step into the new world of hand blenders and never look back!
