Your regular blender can be great for making smoothies, but a small hand blender can be more convenient when it comes to mixing smaller quantities of sauces, salad dressings and hot soups. There’s less cleanup because you can mix your ingredients straight in your mixing bowl or stockpot. And it’s small enough that it won’t take up a ton of room in your kitchen cabinets.
KitchenAid Corded Hand Blender, $44.99 (Orig. $54.99)
KitchenAid is a cookware brand most people know and love. So you can trust that their hand blender is going to work, and it’s going to last. It has an 8-inch blending arm with a four-point stainless steel blade, and it comes with a removable pan guard to protect your cookware as you blend.
It has various speeds for greater control over your blending. And it also comes with a BPA-free blending jar with a lid for smaller recipes. You can use it to blend and store items in the fridge or freezer.
When you’re done blending, you can clean up easily by detaching the blending arm and popping it in the dishwasher.
More than 1,600 Amazon shoppers give the KitchenAid Corded Hand Blender five out of five stars, with one calling it a “kitchen miracle.”
“The KitchenAid hand blender is a super tool for the kitchen,” the reviewer wrote. “It is powerful, but it has covers for the end of the device to keep from damaging pots. It emulsifies vegetables to make sauces or soups. It is a very handy addition to your kitchen appliances.”
“I don’t know how these tiny blades are just as effective as the bigger ones typically found in a blender, but they are,” wrote another reviewer. “They do everything a regular blender does. I’ve used it to make milkshakes, smoothies, purées, pie dough and whipped cream. I love that I am not limited to the space in the blending jar because I can use this to blend things in bowls of all sizes.”
The KitchenAid hand blender comes in 11 different colors, from neutral black, white and gray to pistachio, aqua and blue. So choose your color and get one now while it’s on sale.
