Our Review Factors
We were looking for a comfortable grip, ease of use and maintenance, the materials used to make the body and blades, and overall convenience in the Orpat 250-watt hand blender.
1. Ease of Use
Here we gauged the versatility and utility of the blender.
The motor is bound to generate some noise, but is it too loud? Does the body heat up?
Are the blades sharp enough to yield consistently smooth and lump-free gravies/shakes and smoothies each time?
If held for a prolonged period, is the grip comfortable or does it hurt the wrist? What about the button? Does it function smoothly?
Does this hand blender occupy too much space? The materials used, length of the cord, quality of blades- observations on these were recorded.
3. Other Parameters
Other parameters like speed settings, material of the body and blades, price, packaging were taken into account.

Price and packaging
Orpat hand blender was packed in a plastic sheet. The jar, stand, and instruction manual were inside the carton. The cord is attached to the blender.
This is priced at Rs 1,050/-.
Orpat hand blender is a lightweight appliance, the lightest among all our contenders in Mishry’s big review. This has a 1-year warranty and draws a power of 250 watts.
The body is made of plastic and the blades are stainless steel. These blades are S-shaped and fixed.
We tested the Orpat hand blender in three stages to gauge its versatility. These were a soup test, one with pureeing fruits and making a milkshake, and the final was blending raw tomatoes.
This is a well-designed blender. Neither is the grip uncomfortable nor does the button hurt the thumb after continuous usage. Of the five contenders, Orpat was the only one that came with a jar.
The blender made some noise but it wasn’t bothersome. The result was an evenly smooth and well-blended soup.
This blender comes with a wide-mouth jar that ensures spill-free blending. To prepare the milkshake, we took 150 ml milk, ½ cup mango cubes, and ½ tbsp sugar and blitzed the mix for exactly 30 seconds.
Within this time, the shake had blended well and had an even consistency. No lumps of the fruit in the shake! Moreover, the jar didn’t wobble too much.
Finally, we pureed some raw tomatoes. Like stage one, the motor did make some noise. Compared to our Top Pick, Orpat did require relatively more effort in smashing the tomatoes but once done, the process was smoother. It barely took 20 seconds.
- This is a budget-friendly pick.
- It comes with a jar and a wall mount stand.
- The grip is quite comfortable and this is a light-weight appliance.
- It gets the job done efficiently and is ideal for everyday use.
- This is not detachable and may be a task to clean.
- Ingredients like turmeric, spinach, beetroot may impact the color of the rod in the long run.
