Let’s face it, breaking out the blender can be a bit of a pain, especially if it’s just for one small kitchen task. There’s potential for splashes on your clean countertops and lengthy cleanups afterward. Blending doesn’t have to be intimidating (or messy). An immersion blender, or stick blender will get the job done without any extra containers or getting out bulky equipment. Below, we’ve highlighted our favorite models that can whip up a creamy root vegetable soup or a thick chocolate shake with the greatest of ease.
