Find highly rated and reviewed small kitchen appliances from stand mixers to ice cream makers, juice extractors to rice cookers in our Small Appliances Department. For example, one of our best-selling and best-reviewed kitchen appliances is the Vitamix Bar Blender. If you're shopping for a machine that can make the smoothest smoothies, ice blended drinks as well as soups in no time flat, this powerful machine should be top of your list. The price tag is on the higher end but the savings begin to add up when you calculate that you can even make your own peanut butter and salsa with a Vitamix. If your primary goal is to blend things like pureed soups, smoothies and pancake batter, a less high tech but more affordable option is the SmartStick Hand Blender by Cuisinart that allows you to blend directly in the bowl or pitcher.
When it comes to ice cream, check out Cuisinart ice cream makers, from a 3-in-1 version that is fully automatic, and makes frozen yogurt, ice cream and sorbet, to the Pure Indulgence machine that makes a full two quarts of frozen desserts or drinks in less than 25 minutes.
And for those setting up a full kitchen for the first time, or maybe nurturing a love for baking, mom and grandma knew what they were doing with their KitchenAid Stand Mixers. This culinary standby maintains its relevance with unsurpassed quality and durability. Along with the magic it makes with your dough and egg whites, attachments galore mean you can whip up homemade pasta, stuff fresh sausage, grind your own burger meat, and even squeeze fruit. All you have to decide is which of the vast array of colors, from pear green to antique copper, goes best with your kitchen.
