Whether you want to make soups, sauces, smoothies, or all three, it may be a good idea to add an immersion blender, also known as a hand blender, to your kitchen arsenal. Easier to maneuver (and to clean) than a standard blender, an immersion blender is much more versatile; because it often comes with attachments, it can froth milk, whisk eggs, even chop veggies. Plus, if you’re lacking counter space, it’s a lot easier to store than a full-size blender. And while we’ve written about lots of gadgets for your mixing needs — including the best hand mixers, the best stand mixers, and the best blenders — here, we’ve rounded up the best immersion blenders as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.
