Philips HR1604 550 Watt Hand Blender
Sometimes a simple and easy to use hand blender is all you want over the modern, but confusing blending appliances that are famous these days. To help in this regard Philip is here with its HR 1604 Hand Blender, which looks simple works deadly. However, before we proceed with the review let me tell you the product has not got too many positive reviews in favor, those have bought seems confused with its usability. In addition, it is not affordable at the price of 2739 rupees in the market.
This hand blender does not look great, but its outer shell is made of durable materials. The unique shape of the handle provides a really comfortable grip. Its stainless steel blades have been molded in a triangular shape with the help of an anti-splash cover that not only prevents food splash, but also increases the efficiency of the blending operation. However, the beaker that comes in the box has a capacity of only 0.5 liter, which can be disappointing for many users.
The 550 Watt motor of this hand blender helps in making smoothies and soups without delay. Using this device is really easy because of only one control switch that is located on the handle. However, you will not be able to change the speed of the motor because of which blending different ingredients at different consistency might become a problem.
Voltage input range of 220-240 V is quite impressive and suits Indian conditions. Moreover, Philips also offers two years of service warranty on this product.
- Low power consumption
- Triangular shape of blade increases efficiency
- Powerful motor
- Slim-grip handle for comfortable use
- Prevents food splashing
- Single switch
- Two button release system
- Only one speed setting is available
- Beaker is really small because of which you will be forced to process your food in multiple sessions
This blender is only good for newbies who have not used any hand blender earlier. For advanced users, there are a lot of alternatives available in the market.

Philips HR1363 600 Watt Hand Blender
Philips is famous for innovating new devices that help people in their daily lives. One of its recent innovations is the Philips HR1363 Hand Blender, which the company says is also a chopper. This product can be purchased for an attractive price of 2300 rupees. However, our observation says you will not get the kind of results from this hand blender as the manufacturer is promising for.
I have to acknowledge that the design of this gadget is really attractive. The combination of purple and white color gives a much premium touch to the body. Its soft touch handle provides an easy grip during the operation. Control buttons are located at an easy to reach place and are really comfortable pressing. One of the worries of every kitchen lady is the food splashing that occurs while blending. To prevent that from happening, Philips has equipped this gadget with an anti-splash blade guard.
You get a beaker and a chopping attachment with this blender, but the bad thing is that both these attachments have really low capacity.
The Philips gadget comes with a 600-Watt motor that helps completing the blending process just in seconds. Two speed modes result in a greater efficiency while blending ingredients of varying hardness. The blender also features a special turbo mode that can be used for tough ingredients. Specially designed double action blades cut the food in both horizontal and vertical direction resulting in quicker and finer operation. The chopping attachment that comes along is not much of use as it grinds the food instead of chopping. However, it is good for making chutneys and pastes.
Also, this Philips hand blender consumes much less electricity and does require power input between 220-240 Volts to run.
- Turbo mode
- Stainless steel blades
- Powerful motor
- Easy to clean
- Comfortable and user friendly design
- Grinds instead of chopping
- Low capacity attachments
Since it turns out that the gadget is not good for chopping ingredients, it will be a waste of hard-earned money if you are buying it only for that purpose. However, this blender can be a good buy if your main purpose is to make chutneys and pastes.
|Power Consumption||600 Watts|
|Speed Settings||2 + Turbo Mode|
|Accessories||Beaker and Copping Jar|
|Extra Features||Chopping Function, Anti-Splash Blade Guard and Easy cleaning|

Philips HR1565 50 400W Hand Blender
We all love to eat cake, but most of us prefer to buy from shop rather than preparing at home. What I have heard from many homemakers is that cake making is a tough task so buying from local shop becomes preferred choice than taking chance at home. However, reality is totally different from what many homemakers think. Cake backing is very simple and easy process. All you need is right gadgets in the kitchen to complete the entire process. Since we all are aware preparing cake is basically combination of two intelligent processes- the first is mixing of ingredients followed by the backing process. For cake backing, microwave is a fine gadget similarly we need a power device, which does even mixing of all ingredients.
Philips has designed the HR1565 mixer, a perfect solution for all kinds of mixing need. If your homemaker finds difficulty in preparing Atta dough, gift this Philips gadget. I am sure she will love this device and its efficiency in day to day usages.
The whole set is made of perfect alignment of four parts, which are mixer stand, 3 liters container, blades/hook and a cord storage clip.
Built & Motor
Use of ABS material comes with glossy design that makes the entire unit a light-weight craft as well as durable for long run. The given beaters and dough hook is made of stainless steel, robust enough to give perfect result in just a few seconds.
In my opinion, 400W motor is absolutely perfect does not consume more electricity also completes task with ease. Logically, the kitchen appliance is designed for mixing and dough making work, so use of high power motor will not be a wise decision.
The cord stand clip features a turbo engine control option with three speeds to choose from. In order to start the dough or mixing process, switch on the machine by pressing power button, which is placed next to the speed control on the handle. Start with low speed, after a few seconds switch to medium and close the process in high setting.
The Philips kitchen gadget is sufficient for a family with 4 to 5 members. Indeed, it adds value to your kitchen making all mixing work super easy, completed in just few seconds. I have bought the gadget mainly for dough making. It does fine job, but the bigger question is- should we spend 4500 rupees just for a dough making gadget?
Philips should be giving at least three years of warranty since the product is very costly whereas functionalities is basic limited to dough preparing and ingredients mixing works.
I trust Philips more than any other brand in the world. In my home, Philips is everywhere. Design and concept of this mixer is perfect, but its price does not make it considerable choice for Indian middle class. Furthermore, Philips should have given a steel bowl instead of the plastic one. I am not in favor of this gadget due to its high price.
