Philips HR1351/90 250 W Hand Blender – What You Need To Know
From ease of use to cleaning and maintenance, here’s all you need to know about the Philips hr1351/90 250 w Hand Blender.
All accessories and the main unit come individually wrapped. They are placed inside a sturdy carton and all elements are securely placed in a separate layer of cardboard.
2. Body Material
Main Unit- Polypropylene and rubber
Blades- Stainless steel
From fruit smoothies to vegetable soups, this hand blender can be used for multiple culinary purposes.
Additionally, since this comes with a chopper attachment, you can use it for chopping vegetables too. The main handle (that is plugged into an electric socket) can be used with the blender attachment as well as the chopper as it is detachable.
The manufacturer offers a 2-year warranty.
5. Ease of Handling
This hand blender works at the push of a button. This button has a soft touch as it is made of rubber. It has a concave curve that doesn’t feel unnatural for the thumb.
The handle offers an easy grip that doesn’t hurt the wrist when in use.
PS- it is mentioned on the beaker to not use the blender for more than 30 seconds at a stretch.
We think this may be due to the low power consumption of this hand blender.
6. Speed of Blending
This hand blender does not offer the option of changing between speeds. Based on the consistency/texture you’re looking for, you can blend the ingredients for a shorter or longer duration. The same goes for the chopper attachment.
Philips Hand Blender price is Rs 2,295/-.
This hand blender draws a power of 250 watts.

Philips HR1351/90 250 W Hand Blender – Detailed Review
This hand blender is equipped with a unique S-cross blade. This strategically designed blade cuts and blends ingredients in both ways – horizontally and vertically. The accessories included with this hand blender (beaker and chopper attachment) were appreciated by the entire Team. They make this appliance a very versatile product!
For our review, we tried using this hand blender to prepare a protein shake and some chopping.
Protein Shake- This comes with a beaker that has a decent capacity. It also had measurement markings along the side which further eliminates the need for additional cutlery. To the beaker, we added a scoop of protein powder with a cup of water. The hand blender sits in the beaker very seamlessly. Just a few blitzes later, we had a perfectly blended protein shake! There were no lumps of protein powder and this blender added some volume and froth to the shake as well.
Chopping Veggies- The chopper attachment has a transparent jar. Whether you need larger chunks of the veggies or you wish to use them in the pureed form, the chopper allows for peeks mid-use. Another aspect of the design we liked is how easy the assembling is! Similarly, the grip on the handle is fairly comfortable too. The switch is made of rubber and has a cavity that doesn’t hurt the wrist or thumb after prolonged use.
On multiple occasions, we tried chopping onions, cabbage, beetroot, tomatoes, and a few other vegetables that have some moisture content. The process was easy and effortless.
