Philips Viva Collection HR1617


Cheap, quick and easy to use and plenty powerful

Variable speed motor ; Up and down action of blade makes belnding quicker ; Easy to use even when messy

Difficult to control texture when blending ; Not much to look at

The Philips Viva Collection hand blender is a fantastic, functional addition to any kitchen. It’s quick, easy to use and is powerful enough to make a puree out of anything we threw at it.

Excellent purchase


Looking for something that was not too big and bulky, with too many attatchments, and I found it with this. Looks good, works well, doesn't take up too much space. Exceptional quality and excellent price. . So glad I bought it. Makes great soups!

It's very practical as a product, of high quality, performance and beautiful design. The vertical blades considerably speed up the blending process but make it harder to properly clean it.

Amazing kitchen helper


Bought this hand blender because my old, cheap one, had broken. Am really impressed with this as not only can you use it to blend soups, shakes etc. but you can also use it to chop veg or puree fruit as it comes with a mini processor which works with...
