Best Hand Blenders
Some time ago, blenders that were pitcher-sized were still being used to make shakes and smoothies. No longer. Far more practical and convenient is the hand blender.
Not only are they more convenient to use, they clean off far more easily than the big blenders that need to be dismantled. These are great for not just smoothies and shakes, but any number of light mixing and blending tasks. I always have one to hand when I am cooking. You can use them for anything from mixing dry pancake ingredients to breaking up the lumps in a lumpy gravy that went wrong.
I have tried all these and can recommend any of them as best in the price range.
