I have no idea if the Sainsbury's Basics Hand Blender has changed in model, but I have one, and it differs slightly from the picture shown. And it's TERRIBLE, almost totally useless. I have to share my review as a warning to anyone considering buying one! **Availability and Price** Obviously, it's only available from Sainsbury's instore and online, and it costs £4.97. I was attracted by the price, I have to say - I use a stick blender probably once a week so figured hey, it doesn't matter if it's not some £50 model as long as it does the job. **Box & Contents** The box is white with a picture of the blender and some orange ...

It would seem these days that you can pick up the most splendid and amazing kitchen gadgets for only a few pence, literally! The days of having to save over one hundred pounds to buy the latest tool are firmly in the past. Sainsburys' Hand Blender is part of their Basics Range. This is a range of products with a cheaper price tag. I was shocked to see the blender cost less than five pounds (£4.99) because you can buy a punnet of strawberries for that in Marks and Spencer. For that price, who cares if it doesn't work that well, it's got to be worth a try! The blender is small, about the size of a generous sized electric toothbrush but this is handy for me as I ...

Now I must confess I am not much of a cook, soups, casseroles and pasta are about my limit. But having to start feeding my baby nutricious meals all made from scratch meant that I had to make purees so needed to use a blender. I already had a Sainsburys basics handheld blender on the premise that occasionally I would whizz up a soup so decided to use this for making purees. A bit about the blender I got it from Sainsburys for the princely sum of £4.95 so I must say that it is absolutely a bargain. It comes in two parts - the top section containing the motor which plugs into the mains electric supply is easily detachable from ... Read the complete review

BASICS: So, I have a beautiful KitchenAid food processor. But sometimes it's a bit of a hassle to assemble and disassemble, and fairly frequently I'm making several dishes at the same time that require blending. This is where the Sainsbury's Basic Hand Blender fits. It's at the opposite end of the scale from my £300 ish KitchenAid - coming in at a mere £4.95 - but I can guarantee, there's a hand-blender shaped space in any kitchen for it.. THE LOOK: Not one for your display cabinet (though, rather bizarrely, an attachment is provided to enable you to do basically that - and hook it onto your wall!). The blender comes in the standard ... Read the complete review

My first ever job was at Sainsburys, so I've had a little bit if experience with their products. I worked on the electrical department for a while and noticed that the Basics Hand Blender was selling like hot cakes. I was going through a bit of a health and fitness craze at the time and needed something to blend my protein shakes and smoothies with, so armed with my discount card I bought myself one. I paid £4.95 for it, not including the discount. Like most of Sainsburys electrical products, you get a year long guarantee, so make sure you keep your receipt safe. It comes in a typical cardboard box with the white and orange colouring of the basics range, ... Read the complete review

Works well, good value for money
The cable is a little short

It appears to be made out of metal
