What You'll Need

Hand blenders are portable devices used to mix small quantities of food or liquid. While a hand blender is useful for its mobility and ease of operation, it is important to consider the fact that it contains blades and a powerful motor. As such, it is not permissible to bring a hand blender (also called a wand or stick blender) onto an airplane.

If you would like to travel with your hand blender, ensure that you leave it out of your carry-on luggage when boarding an airplane. Just like other appliances and tools with blades, airport security will not allow blenders of any kind in the cabin of a plane because a hand blender could be used as a weapon.

How to Travel with the Hand Blender

In order to take your hand blender with you while you travel, deconstruct the appliance according to the manufacturer’s instructions and carefully pack it into your checked bag.

You may wish to wrap the individual pieces in cloth in order to protect them against movement during the flight. If you have any other questions, consult the security personnel at the airport for further advice.
