About the GE Immersion Blender

The GE Immersion Blender comes with several attachments to extend its kitchen capabilities.

This immersion blender sticks to the basics, making it easy to start using right away.

At just three pounds, the base is light enough to comfortably hold in one hand for long periods of time—especially with the ergonomic silicone handle.

It features a 500-watt blender with buttons for two speeds, low and high. And it comes with three accessories: a blending attachment, whisk attachment, and chopping jar. The attachments are designed with a stainless steel finish that makes them easy to clean by hand or toss in the dishwasher.

What we like about the GE Immersion Blender

The powerful motor performs extremely well

The GE was able to break down tough smoothie ingredients, like flaxseeds and leafy greens.

We put this handheld appliance through a wide range of tests to determine how versatile it can be in the kitchen.

First, we used it to blend a single-serve smoothie, incorporating frozen fruit, leafy greens, and flaxseeds to see how well it broke down difficult ingredients. And compared to other immersion blenders, the GE performed exceptionally well, fully combining ingredients and even breaking down seeds that were left behind by the other machines.

We also blended butternut squash and broth into a creamy soup, and the GE did so faster and more efficiently than most of the other blenders we tested.

We then used the accompanying chopping jar to make pesto and the whisk attachment to whip cream—and both results were achieved with fast and thorough results. (More on that next.)

The included accessories work well

The chopping jar excelled at producing smooth and creamy pesto.

Most immersion blenders feature the classic blending head that helps you achieve creamy soups and pestos. But additional accessories that stretch the appliance's versatility can be game-changing.

Such is the case for the GE immersion blender's accompanying chopping jar and whisk attachments. The former was a fantastic tool for producing smooth and well-combined pesto, while the whisk helped us achieve airy homemade whipped cream with very minimal time and effort.

These accessories would also be great for tasks like chopping nuts, whisking eggs for omelets, or making homemade hummus.

It's comfortable to hold for long periods of time

The lightweight and ergonomic build of this model is great for tasks like blending soup.

The ergonomic handle on this immersion blender is a huge plus, especially when it comes to more tedious tasks (like blending a whole pot of soup).

The no-slip silicone top is extremely comfortable to hold, and the two buttons are easy to press down to keep the motor running.

And since the blender only weighs in at three pounds, it's easy to hold with one hand without having to worry about your arm getting too tired.

What we don't like

It doesn't come with its own container

You'll need to use your own container when it comes to tasks like smoothies and whipped cream.

The one thing we found missing from this blender set was a smoothie cup accessory or blending container.

We needed to scrounge through our pantries for spacious containers with tall sides for the whipped cream and smoothie tests, since we wanted to avoid any risk of food splashing across our kitchen.

Immersion blenders from competing brands like Breville offer jugs that are designed for tasks like single-serve smoothies and low-volume sauces, so we were disappointed that the GE model was missing this accessory.

But you can always opt for a separate reusable container to meet your needs—and still benefit from all the pros of the GE model.

Should you buy the GE Immersion Blender?

Absolutely! It's a valuable kitchen must-have with a small price tag

This workhorse appliance performs exceptionally well—and comes at a good price.

Whether you're just looking for a tool to get through soup season—or a year-round sidekick to assist with myriad kitchen tasks—the GE immersion blender is a workhorse that comes at a great value.

It can ease through a variety of tasks with minimal effort, and its lightweight build makes it extremely easy to maneuver. At this price point, you'd be hard pressed to find a better performing alternative. But if you prefer to opt for a blender with more accessories or a cord-free design, check out our runners-up for best immersion blenders.
