Morphy Richards Accents Hand Blender Work Center Review

I was delighted to be invited to be a Morphy Richards Innovator earlier this year.  I did squeal with excitement and do a happy dance for a minute or two when I received their email.  Basically being a Morphy Richards Innovator means that I get sent lovely Morphy Richards products to review and retain so that I can blog about my opinions of the products.  Hurrah!  I already own several Morphy Richards appliances and have found them to be of high quality and very reliable so I am very excited to be able to try out a few more. 

The first appliance I was sent to review and put through its paces was the Accents Hand Blender Work Center which has a powerful 700W motor and is a lovely vibrant red colour, it also comes in cyan, yellow and cream should you want to match the colour of your appliances to the colour scheme of your kitchen.  The Accent Hand Blender Work Center retails for £69.99.  Here's a handy Morphy Richards video showing off the appliance:




So what did I think of it? Well, it is a really useful gadget and since my Magimix is deceased, I can see that I will find it really helpful when dealing with mundane food preparation tasks should I be in a hurry or my children go on strike. It grates, slices, chops and blends with ease and is fairly compact to store away when you're done.  It will also help us cut our food preparation time even more as I can easily make breadcrumbs, blitz onions and garlic to freeze and also grate cheese to freeze as well.  It is also fab for making small portions of coleslaw or shredded veges for a salad really quickly. 

Just one niggle, the beaker really could do with a non-slip base as it felt like it might slip a little when I was using the hand blender in it.  Other than that, it is brilliant! You get 2 gadgets for the price of one and it is fab for making breadcrumbs, pesto, salsa, chopping nuts and all those other little jobs that you might ordinarily need a food processor and blender for.  Great product if you are short on kitchen space, money and time - just like I am.

  1. Great review Michelle. I think I need one, as my Magimix is sadly well on its way to being an ex Magimix.
