Owning a cutting-edge blender can be a game-changer in the kitchen, but it can also take up a ton of shelf space and cause annoying and time-consuming cleanups. Also, has anyone noticed how heavy they can get? No one has time for that.
Enter the personal blender. They’re sleek, equally as powerful as a regular-sized machine and most of them are built to take on-the-go for maximum efficiency. Whether you’re a morning smoothie type of gal, a puréed pesto topping guy or anyone who enjoys a smooth daiquiri once in a while, one of these products might be the perfect addition to your kitchen appliance arsenal.

The Magic Bullet is Amazon's bestselling countertop blender with over 50,000 verified five-star ratings. It comes with the base, two different sized cups, two lids, one to-go lid and a recipe guide. "For single people or small families, the magic bullet is the most versatile investment you can get," added one shopper who raved about its efficiency.

Hamilton Beach's personal blender might be a regular traveler’s best friend. Make any drink with a single touch, then take it anywhere with the blend-and-go jar and lid.

Whether you’re puréeing soups or fixing up your favorite protein shakes, Cuisinart’s compact personal blender has the power to do it all (literally, the new EvolutionX is equipped with 7.4 volts of lithium ion).
