Argos Hand Blender
Advantages: Easy to use and a brillant price.
I own the Argos Value Hand Blender and this is my review of the product. I paid only £4.89 for the hand blender a few months ago which I think is really great value but I was a bit worried as to wether the blender would work well enough for me due to being such a cheap price!
I did not have any problem with setting up the blender ready to use for the first time. All I had to do was take it out of the box and remove the packaging and then I had to put the two pieces of the blender together. The two pieces are the top part which has the mechanism inside it and the wire that you plug into the wall and the bottom piece which is the neck of the blender with the blade at the bottom of it. The two pieces slot into each other very easily and you can feel when it is slotted into place.
The blades on this blender are made of stainless steel so I knew it was going to be a blender that lasts quite a while as stainless steel is a good quality metal. It also means that the bottom part of the blender, or the part with the blade on it is able to be put into the dishwasher. The top part of the blender can not be put into the dishwasher obviously cos it has the plug on the end of the wire.
The top part of the blender has a large blue button on it and this is the button to give power to the blender when you are wanting to blend your food. The last hand blender that I bought had two different speed settings but the Argos Value Hand Blender only has one setting and so the blue button is basically an on/off button. When it is pressed the blender goes on and when I press it again the blender goes off. The button is easy to use and I do not need to use to much pressure to press the button on or off.
The blender feels quite heavy when I am using it but it is no heavier than the last model I had so I think the weight is cos of the motor in the top part of the blender. There is a good length of flex on the Argos blender so it stretches easily when I am in the kitchen using it.
I usually use my blender to make soup and this does not cause to much mess for me but the Argos Value Blender has a splash guard design on the end next to where the blades are. I did not think it really made any difference to the mess made by using a hand blender and I think this is just a gimmick of this model. The splash guard might work better if using the blender to puree foods for babies but as I am usually using mine to make soup I do not really notice the difference.
I think the Argos Value Hand Blender is made of good quality materials as it feels quite sturdy to me and I have actually dropped this blender before and there was no damage to it at all even though I dropped it onto a tiled floor. I think it is a good quality product and it feels and looks as if it is well made to me. It does its job well and it blends food and soup as easily as the last hand blender I owned which cost me £20 so I was pleased that the Argos Value Blender worked so well as it was a much cheaper price.
I would suggest buying the Argos Value Hand Blender as it is a sturdy model and it works well for me. I think it is a really good value price and it is a good quality product made of good quality materials in my opinion. I do not really have any major issues with the blender and would buy it again if this one stopped working cos it works as well as the last blender I had!
