We need our kitchen appliances to do more. That’s why I was excited to test out the Kenwood Triblade Hand Blender (HB724 model) this week.
This hand blender is the MacGyver of kitchen tools; it features 23 different functions to do everything from sauces and dressings, to drinks, soups, baby food and much more.
What’s in the box:
The model I went hands-on with (HB 724) came with a dizzying array of attachments. I actually had to sit down and look through them all to figure out what does what. The photo shows them from left to right:
There’s the basic hand blender attachment; a stainless steel wand with a steel blade, and a plastic coated interior. There’s a soup attachment; it resembles the hand blender, but this one is about twice as wide, and flatter, with more openings in the underside. There’s a whisk attachment, and a masher attachment, which looks just like the soup blender, but for dozens of tiny holes in the top, and a wider plastic blade. The kit also comes with a very large plastic jar, which Kenwood refers to as a ‘beaker’, a lid for said beaker, and a chopping bowl with its own small steel blade, and both a working lid for that bowl which connect to the motor, plus a plastic storage lid.
I ran real world tests with each of the attachments in my kitchen. To find out how they did, and if I’m recommending the Kenwood, click for the full review on Future Shop’s Tech Blog.
