If you find yourself regularly blending ingredients during your cooking preparations, you should consider a hand blender - particularly if you need something that is both portable and easy to clean. Though designed to blend softer ingredients, higher-powered hand blenders can also tackle tougher ingredients, such as vegetables.

 

When looking for a hand blender, there are a number of qualities and factors you should think about. You'll need to consider how often and how rigorously you'll be using the blender as well as how much power you'll require.

 

With this in mind, we take a look at our top five hand blenders.
