The Morphy Richards Accents is a 600W hand blender with eight speed settings, three more than any other hand blender we’ve tested. It comes complete with a mini chopper enclosed within a large, handled jug, and a balloon whisk. There’s a measuring beaker too along with the traditional stainless steel stem blender with Morphy Richards’ new Serrator blades.
The eight speed settings are easily accessible via a click wheel around the top of the hand blender, which allows you to vary the power from 500 – 600W. This means you have much more control over how your ingredients come out.
There’s a turbo button too, located above the power button on the soft touch grip. The grip is ergonomically designed to make the Accents easy to hold. It looks good, too.
Although small, the Serrator blades are surprisingly nimble and managed to mince all of our ingredients. The variable speeds allow you to control the coarseness of the blend, which is especially useful when making recipes like hummus where you don’t want it perfectly smooth.
There’s a simple locking system in place for the Morphy Richards hand blender, popping attachments off and on at the push of a button.

The Accents hand blender is a tad heavy, no doubt due in part to the excellent built quality. That said, the speed at which it completes tasks means you won’t get an aching wrist.
The included wall bracket is pretty useless. As far as we could work out, it can only accommodate the main handle, and not any of the other accessories, which means you’d have to store them separately.
One final annoying flaw is that the whisk attachment can be quite difficult to clean where it plugs into the handle.
The Morphy Richards Accents hand blender is a quick, powerful and easily adjustable kitchen addition. A solid build and array of attachments for a good price definitely make this one to consider.
