The Bamix Mono M133 is a handheld immersion blender that's decent for many uses. It looks and feels extremely well-built, and is incredibly easy to clean. Unlike some other immersion blenders, it does a good job at crushing ice, though it does take around four minutes to create bar-quality ice, which is a long time. Unfortunately, it's disappointing for making smoothies and things like almond butter, as it has a difficult time fully blending all ingredients and leaves a lot of chunks. On the bright side, it's very good for making chunky soups, and thanks to its immersion design, you can blend right in the pot.

Our Verdict

7.3 Multi-Purpose

The Bamix Mono M133 is a decent immersion blender for multi-purpose use. While it's only okay at making smoothies, it does a satisfactory job at crushing ice, creating bar-quality ice in around four minutes. Thanks to its immersion design, it's very good at making soups, and it looks and feels durable enough to use in a professional setting.

Pros
  • Extremely well-built and easy to clean.
  • Multiple attachments for different uses.
  • Good for soups and crushing ice.
Cons
  • Smoothies are foamy and chunky.
  • Sub-par for making almond butter.
  • Takes a long time to blend ice.
6.6 Smoothies/Protein Shakes

The Bamix Mono M133 is only okay at making smoothies and protein shakes. Smoothies made with this blender are disappointing as it's unable to fully process leafy vegetables like kale. After four minutes, the resulting smoothie is foamy and chunky. On the bright side, this blender is good at crushing ice and is extremely easy to clean.

Pros
  • Very easy to clean.
Cons
  • Smoothies are foamy and chunky.
  • Takes a long time to blend ingredients.
7.3 Ice Crushing

The Bamix Mono M133 is a decent blender for crushing ice. It's able to create bar-quality ice in around four minutes without the blades jamming, which is good for an immersion blender. It also looks and feels very well-built, so it shouldn't get damaged while blending ice.

Pros
  • Produces bar-quality ice.
Cons
  • Takes a long time to blend ice.
7.8 Soups

The Bamix Mono M133 is very good for making soup. While it's unable to blend ingredients smoothly, it's good for making chunky soups. Since it's an immersion blender, you can blend your ingredients directly in a pot, so clean-up is a breeze.

Pros
  • Very easy to clean.
  • Works with hot liquids.
Cons
  • Takes a long time to blend ingredients.
7.5 Professional Use

The Bamix Mono M133 is a good blender for professional use. It looks and feels very well-built, so it should be able to keep up even in a commercial environment. It can create bar-quality ice and is very easy to clean. Unfortunately, it's disappointing at making smoothies and things like almond butter, with lots of chunks leftover.

Pros
  • Extremely well-built and easy to clean.
  • Multiple attachments for different uses.
  • Good for soups and crushing ice.
Cons
  • Smoothies are foamy and chunky.
  • Sub-par for making almond butter.

Due to the fairly low power and speed even on its highest setting, the Bamix Mono M133 is sub-par for making almond butter. Even after a full ten minutes, it isn't able to smoothly blend the almonds and leaves a crunchy almond butter. On the bright side, there are no full almonds left unprocessed. If you want a similar hand blender that's better suited for making nut butter, check out the All-Clad KZ750DGT.

Compared To Other Blenders

The Bamix Mono M133 is a decent immersion blender for many uses. Unlike other hand blenders, like the Braun MultiQuick 5 or the Braun MultiQuick 7, the Bamix makes bar-quality ice without the blades jamming, though it does take around four minutes.

Braun MultiQuick 7

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better immersion blender for soups or professional use than the Braun MultiQuick 7. The Bamix feels better-built, can produce smoothies with a better texture, and can also make bar-quality ice. However, the MultiQuick's blade assemblies are dishwasher-safe, and it produces smoother almond butter. It also comes with several tools and attachments to help you out in the kitchen.

Braun MultiQuick 9

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better immersion blender than the Braun MultiQuick 9. The Bamix is better-built, and it comes with a lid for its personal jar, unlike the Braun. It also does a better job crushing ice. That said, the Braun makes slightly better almond butter.

KitchenAid KHBBV53

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better, more versatile immersion blender than the KitchenAid KHBBV53. The Bamix is better-built, and it feels more premium and durable. Also, it can crush ice, unlike the KitchenAid. However, both blenders struggle to make well-blended smoothies and spreadable almond butter.

Vitamix 5200

The Vitamix 5200 is a better blender than the Bamix Mono M133, but they have very different designs. The Bamix is an immersion blender, making it a good choice for blending soups directly in the pot. On the other hand, the Vitamix is an excellent full-size blender for all uses but is bulkier and requires a lot more counter space.

All-Clad KZ750DGT

The Bamix Mono M133 and the All-Clad KZ750DGT are both decently versatile immersion blenders, and depending on your usage habits, you may prefer one over the other. The Bamix is much more durable and better-built, and it comes with a small jar. However, it isn't as easy to hand-wash as the All-Clad, and it takes a longer time to make almond butter. That said, neither blender can make a very smooth, spreadable almond butter or a very silky smoothie.

Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better immersion blender than the Cuisinart Smart Stick Two-Speed Hand Blender. The Bamix is much better-built and more durable. It can also make better, bar-quality crushed ice. That said, the Cuisinart can make almond butter slightly quicker.

Braun MultiQuick 5

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better immersion blender than the Braun MultiQuick 5. The Bamix can crush ice well, which the Braun fails to accomplish. The Bamix also feels better build and has more blades. On the other hand, the Braun is slightly easier to clean, and while it falls short in performance compared to the Mono M133, it's significantly cheaper.

Breville Boss To Go Sport

The Breville Boss To Go Sport and the Bamix Mono M133 are two very different blenders. The Breville is better if you're looking to mix your daily smoothie and bring it around with you afterward. On the other hand, the Bamix is an immersion blender that's better suited for soups or professional use.

KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender

The Bamix Mono M133 is a better blender than the KitchenAid Variable Speed Corded Hand Blender for mixed-use. The Bamix has a significantly better build quality and can produce bar-quality crushed ice. It also makes more spreadable almond butter, although it takes a longer time. Nevertheless, the KitchenAid makes a much better smoothie.

GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed

The Bamix Mono M133 is more versatile than the GE Appliances Immersion 2-Speed. The Bamix feels significantly better built, and it comes with a 20-ounce jar and lid. It can make more spreadable almond butter as well as bar-quality crushed ice. However, the GE Appliances makes a significantly better smoothie.
