Bosch launches hand blendersTop model features four blades and big motor
10 September 2009
Bosch has launched a range of hand blenders ranging from a basic model up to powerful blender with four blades and other high spec features.
The hand blenders cost from around £27.99 to a startling £74.99. The most expensive is the Bosch MSM7700GB, with a punchy 750W motor and unusually high specification of four blades, whisk and extra large chopper attachments, variable speed with LED indicator and a ‘turbo’ button.
The cheapest model is the MSM6150GB. It still has a ‘turbo’ button and features a heat-resistant base – but also a meeker 400W motor. The MSM6300GB adds 600W of power and a chipper attachment for a suggested price of £37.99. Moving up to £54.99 gets you the ice-crushing blade and tougher foot of the MSM6700GB, more parts of which are dishwasher safe.

Which? kitchen appliance expert Lisa Galliers said that ‘These blenders seem to be of a high specification with interesting features such as that "quattro" blade and low-vibration motors. The range of accessories will appeal to consumers, but they are quite pricey compared to others on the market. It will be interesting to see how they perform in our tests.’
