Why It Won Our Review

After passing our tests with flying colors, the Vitamix was named our top pick “with a pan guard.” Unlike some of our other winners, this blender comes with a built-in plastic tip that protects nonstick and enameled cast iron pans from scratching and other damage. The blade guard also makes the immersion blender safe to use in almost any container, from plastic storage containers to metal mixing bowls.

But its “silly powerful” motor is what really separated the Vitamix from the pack. It had the highest wattage of any we reviewed, producing a strong vortex that combines ingredients quickly and efficiently. In our tests, its ultra-sharp four-way blades pulverized celery into soup in just seconds, leaving very few stubborn fibers left behind. Plus, since the convenient button placement lets you change speeds easily, the Vitamix hand blender is also easy to operate with one hand—a win for multitaskers. This versatile tool promises to become part of your loved one’s daily rotation for years to come, and what’s more romantic than a gift that keeps on giving? Don’t wait: Grab your Vitamix immersion blender today before the discount disappears.
