Powerful blending without taking up counter space.Amazon

Handheld immersion blenders can do tackle nearly everything a countertop blender does—only they’re more budget-friendly, portable, and small-kitchen-friendly. Use them to whip up egg whites for tiramisu, quickly create whipped cream, make smoothies, puree creamy soups, emulsify sauces, and much more. If you're somebody who struggles to get your fruits and veggies in, an immersion blender can turn broccoli and broth into a nice soup, or frozen bananas and cinnamon into "nice cream." Below, our favorites.
