Each home and each kitchen is a world, but there are elements that are repeated in practically all: an oven, a microwave, a refrigerator and, of course, a blender. Although there are three varieties, handheld, glass and standing, today we are going to focus on the most basic: the hand blender.
Also known as minipimer, these mixers are designed to blend, emulsify and whisk. So they are ideal for making sauces such as mayonnaise or creams. They have a very simple design: a motorized body with blades at the end of it. Although there are currently a multitude of mixers on the market, we have wanted to focus on the models low cost.
And we have selected the five top rated Amazon models that cost less than 20 euros:
Moulinex Turbomix DD12A110
We start the selection with a simple and practical Moulinex model, with 350W power, enough for quick and effective results. It has an ergonomic design that is very easy to use: it has a single button on the handle with which to turn the mixer on and off, as well as to control its speed.
It has two stainless steel blades inside an anti-splash foot that will save us having to clean splashes when using the mixer. This can be put in the dishwasher without any problem. 19.90 euros.

Black + Decker BXHB500E
This blender has a little more power than the previous one, 500 watts, and includes a measuring cup. Something really useful when it comes to cooking and being able to follow the recipes to the letter. Both the transmission mechanism and the blades are made of stainless steel.
This allows us to mix, shred or cut food with precision. The blades are inside an anti-splatter foot so you don’t have to clean all the time. The rod is disassembled and can be put in the dishwasher. 19.99 euros.
Bomann SM 354 CB
This is the most economical model of the entire selection, but also the least powerful: 180 W. It is a small model (8 x 8 x 33 cm) but functional, for households that are looking for a cheap mixer because they are not going to use it too much.
Its blades are made of stainless steel, so it can be put in the dishwasher without problems, and its foot is designed in such a way that it prevents splashing. It has a single speed, controlled by the button on the handle. 15.13 euros (before 16.59 euros).
It is an average model, of 400 W power, with a single speed. This is activated with the button located on the handle, designed to be more ergonomic.
It has a single blade, manufactured in stainless steel, very powerful and solid. This is within a foot (designed to avoid splashing when using the mixer) that can be put in the dishwasher. This Jata hand blender enters the selection because it is discounted, since its usual price does exceed our limit low cost: 18 euros (before 26.51 euros)
Ufesa is a brand with a lot of prestige in the world of household appliances and its mixer low cost has not let us down: it has 600 W power, which makes it the most powerful of the entire selection.
It has turbo function and adjustable speed, to be able to regulate it according to the food that we are chopping. Its two stainless steel blades help to process food better. And its removable, dishwasher-safe stand is designed to prevent splashing. 19.90 euros.
