Koios Immersion Hand Blenders is considered one of the best blenders, simply because of its powerful motor, which gives it the ability to crush ice. Add to this its plethora of attachments, and making a meal using this blender is a piece of cake. Especially if you want to make a cake. Be aware that it can be loud, though.

So, if you want to try a different blender, check our Klarstein Blender review.

Why We Like It – Koios Immersion Blender

The Koios Immersion Blender is a powerful hand blender capable of easily carrying out your blending needs thanks to the most powerful motor we’ve seen on a hand blender and its abundance of speed settings. It’s lightweight, too, so your only worry will have to be controlling the unit when it’s on its highest speed settings. To better understand speed on these devices, read our info guide to blender horsepower.

Pros
  • Can Crush Ice
  • Lightweight
  • Great Variety of Attachments
Cons
  • Loud
  • Can Wear Out Faster Than You’d Like

Power

The Koios Hand Mixer boasts an impressive 800-watt motor which is much higher than any other hand blender we’ve seen. But if you are seeking something more powerful and not in the form of a hand blender, consider the Ninja Foodi Blender. But with a motor as powerful as this one, tasks such as crushing, or making baby food and smoothies, should be a piece of cake. Something not normally seen on hand blenders.

Alternatively, if you don’t need that much power and want to save on your spending, check out our reviews of the Margaritaville Frozen Concoction maker and the Breville BSB510XL.

Speed

The Koios Powerful Stainless Steel Stick Blender comes with 12 settings for speed control as well as a turbo function for great versatility in your blending tasks. If you want something more basic, and more minimalistic in your speed options, consider the KitchenAid Diamond Blender. And, if you prefer a device with 5-speed settings, then have a look at the KitchenAid 5-Speed blender.

Durability

At 3.8 pounds, the Koios is one of the best immersion blenders when it comes to weight. However, the trade-off for this is that the blender can get a little loud, especially at high speed. It’s heavy-duty, with a sturdy stainless steel housing, and all parts are dishwasher-safe and BPA-free. Just try not to clean it in the dishwasher too much, as that tends to wear down hand blenders more quickly.

Versatility/Attachments

The Koios Immersion Blender is a multi-purpose blender that includes a blending shaft, whisk attachment, 500mL food chopper attachment, and a 600mL mixing beaker. With all these attachments, you can chop herbs, grate bread crumbs, cut meat, mix light batters, prepare whipped cream, and incorporate air into egg whites. And these are just a tiny fraction of examples.

Value

At $50.00, the Koios Immersion Blender if you’re looking for a good budget-friendly blender that has a lot of versatility. If you do want something more high-end, consider the Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender. A final word on the Koios, the mixing beaker has an ergonomic grip that makes it easy to use. This control grip allows for those who are not strong enough to handle the blender’s power or those with dexterity problems to use the whole system without worry.

Koios Immersion Blender Wrap Up

The old saying in life is that you get what you pay for. The Koios Immersion Blender is a great budget option if you prefer hand blenders over traditional blenders. But be aware that this comes at a cost. And in this case, that cost is less than stellar durability. Especially if you decide to use the dishwasher a lot. But if you hand wash, you should be able to glean more use out of the unit.
