Whip up a decadent dessert for a potluck or stir up homemade soup for a cold-weather lunch with an appliance from our selection of hand blenders. Innovative models from KitchenAid and Kenwood help you quickly make everything from baby food for a picky eater to tasty smoothies to cool off with on hot summer days. Blenders range from simple two-speed units to complete systems with mixing or measuring bowls. To make kitchen life easier, many of them have attachments for specific tasks, such as a whisk, a chopper or a potato masher.
The countertop Vitamix blenders adjust their time and speed depending on the container, letting you achieve consistent results in sauces and purees. The personal-size units liquefy healthy ingredients, so you can experiment with crafting nutritious smoothies and shakes after your workout. Juice extractors also help you make wholesome beverages with less effort.
Blenders from Braun or Cuisinart serve as your go-to device for ordinary meal preparation, complementing food processor features. Crushing ice for margaritas, pulverizing dry ingredients for sauces or chopping nuts for salad accents can be easily accomplished with these high-tech appliances. For more complex dishes, immersion blenders like those made by Breville and All-Clad let you combine ingredients right on the stove top while cooking smooth gravies and hearty stews. They’re also indispensable for mixing dessert drinks and creaming cookie dough while still providing the same features as traditional hand blenders.
