KitchenAid Cordless Rechargeable Variable-Speed Hand Blender
You think you don’t need one: “I have a hand masher,” you say or “the big blender works fine.” And that’s all true, but then you’ll splash yourself with scalding soup trying to pour it into the countertop blender (sounds like I’ve been there, right?). When that day comes, you’ll be ready for an upgrade. Besides soup, an immersion blender is super versatile. Use it to blend smoothies right in the cup, whip up dressings or whip up whipping cream. The cordless design is ideal for kitchens without outlets in convenient spots and the battery indicator light lets you know when it’s time to recharge. This set comes with a blender jar and lid, plus whisk, chopper and blending attachments and you can choose from classic black or matte charcoal.
“Got this a month ago to replace an old hand mixer, and I am glad I did. Far more power, charges quickly and no cord in the way to end up on a burner or worse,” said one happy cook. Reviewers even got creative with how they used their new gadget: “I am so glad that I purchased this hand blender. It works wonders. Sunday, I used it to make a cheesecake. It whipped the cream cheese and everything so easily. Yesterday, I used it to make whipped cream.”
Ninja Creami 7-in-1 Ice Cream Maker
If you’ve ever made DIY ice cream without a machine, you know it takes a lot of time and effort. So any true ice cream aficionado has this item on their kitchen wish list. If you’ve ever needed a sign to finally hit “add to cart”, this is it: this baby’s $30 off for a limited time. The Ninja is the mack daddy of ice cream makers with “creamify” settings for gelato, sorbet, smoothie bowls and milkshakes, plus mix-ins. It also comes with three pint jars and lids to stock your freezer with your homemade confections.
“I’ve tried so many ice cream machines and to no avail, they all failed. Too difficult to operate. I tried this on the vanilla/coconut dairy free ice cream and the mint gelato. Both were excellent, easy and tasted great! I am so excited to pick more flavors. The machine is a bit noisy to operate, but it only lasts about 2 minutes and then you have fantastic gelato or ice cream!” said a satisfier shopper. Another five-star fan said, “The Creami is my new favorite appliance/toy. I’ve only had it a week and already experimenting with flavors like rum raisin ice cream and raspberry sorbet. My son who is an ice cream fanatic loves it and wishes the containers were gallon size.”

Maybe you live in an apartment or home without enough outdoor space for a grill. Maybe you live in a cold climate and you’re not quite hardcore enough for standing in the chill to cook dinner.

“Love this indoor grill! It is exactly as described and better then I expected. No smoke and steaks as well as lamb chops taste just as good as if they were cooked outside! I recommend this to anyone who loves grilling but won’t like to use a gas grill or is worried about the taste of food. I love the fact that I can griddle as well! Made French toast and the family loved! it! Grab it if you can!,” said one satisfied customer.
Another reviewer called it a wonderful cooking product for home and RV saying, “We purchased this item several months ago. We absolutely love it, cooks fast, very easy cleanup. The lid, fan, grill plate and fry plate are wonderful. I’ve made so many dishes from stir frys, to breakfast items, steaks, hot sandwiches in this grill.”

Aside from it being aesthetically beautiful (I got the Cobalt Blue), it really is more than just a blender, it is a machine! This powerhouse, really makes delicious and nutritious vegetable and fruit shakes in under 2 minutes. I’ve already made soups in under 5 minutes. I hope to love this machine for years to come.”
