1. Hand Mixer

With a hand mixer, you can whip up wonderful creations. Compact, lightweight and versatile, a hand mixer can help you easily make smooth cookie batter, perfect whipped cream, tasty icing and decadent chocolate mousse. Its usefulness isn’t limited to baking. Use your hand mixer to whisk eggs, beat potatoes and mix dressings for holiday dinners and everyday meals.

Chopping can be time-consuming and dull, especially if you make numerous main and side dishes for a holiday get-together.

With your food chopper, you can say farewell to onion-induced tears and tedious chopping marathons.
