Philips Viva Collection hand blender, available from amazon.co.uk
16 speed settings
This nifty blender certainly packs a punch with an impressive 16 speed settings and a double-action blade that cuts both horizontally and vertically. It’s simple to use with an anti-splash blade guard for no mess and the chopper accessory is a handy extra for smaller items. It also has soft-touch buttons for ease of use.
