Tesco HB06 Handblender
Advantages: Easy assemble. Easy clean. Saves space compared to a food processor. Inexpensive.
Disadvantages: Minor issue of more solid food getting clogged around the blade but easily rectified.
When i fell pregnant 4 years ago one of the first things I decided was that I would be making our daughters meals rather than the jars of baby food, much cheaper! Due to our small kitchen we didn't want a large food processor cluttering up the worktops or cupboards so we decided to buy a hand blender, we went for the Tesco HB06 as it was the cheapest one we could find at the time, £4.99 when we purchased it however I have seen it on offer for £4 since then.
The blender comes in a long slim box and is within a plastic bag inside the box. The blender is in two parts, the top half with the electrics and motor inside and with the cord and plug attached, the bottom half with the blade which detaches for easy cleaning. Only the bottom half with the blade should ever be submerged into water. The blade is shielded by the outer plastic casing.
Assembly is very straightforward, you just put both pieces together and twist into place. Same goes for taking apart for cleaning, twist and they come apart.
To use the blender is simple, attach both pieces of the blender together then plug in, the cord on the plug is just under a meter so you aren't too restricted with it, submerge blade into food, there is a mark on the blender to show the maximum depth you can submerge it to, press the on switch and away you go!
The instructions advice you to submerge the blade into the food before pressing the on button to prevent splashes but I have found this is only necessary for things like soup, if you are blending more solid food like vegetables, as I was to begin with for my little girl, there aren't really any splashes to worry about.
It is a fabulous product for blending soups, however for the more solid food it took a bit more work as food seemed to get stuck in the blades now and again but it wasn't a major issue as it took seconds to clear the blockage and carry on. Since my daughter is way past the puréed foods stage my blender doesn't get used quite so often but I do still use it regularly for soups, sauces and even things like angel delight when I am being really lazy!
All in all this is a great blender and I would recommend it time and time again, I have had it just over 3 and a half years and have never had any problems with it, for just under £5 that has gotta be a huge bargain buy!
Summary: Great blender for a great price!
