If you do not have a lot of counter space or live alone, you can always opt for a small blender. With so many options on the market, you can definitely find one that suits your needs.
Among the different types of mixers available, two categories stand out: a hand blender or a traditional blender. If really small is what you are after, a hand blender can be just the thing for you. This is a simple rod that has two to three attachments for different uses such as cutting, mashing and shuffling. They are extremely compact and ideal for someone who does not want to loose any counter or closet space and also does not need to mash or chop really hard items: ice cubes, leafy greens, etc.
The other best, small blender option is to buy a compact, standing model. A small mixer would typically be one that has a 1-liter container as opposed to the 3-liter containers of the large models. This mixer style would be the best solution for you if you plan to make drinks like smoothies, raw food drinks or margaritas when crushing ice and raw vegetables is essential.
