10 Small Appliance Superheroes Our Editors Love — All for Under $50
Kitchen appliances don’t have to be expensive to be good at their jobs. Sure, pricier types of stand mixers and blenders may come with extra features that the bare-bones models don’t have, but those cheaper versions can still perform the basic functions just as effectively and reliably. The trick, of course, is knowing which budget models to go for and which ones to avoid. You can really only figure that out by trying them IRL, which is where we come in.
Our editors and writers have tested a lot of kitchen tools and appliances, and they know which ones are actually worth their sticker price. Check out their top picks for small, budget-friendly appliances to find some of the best tools for your home kitchen. This comprehensive list covers all the essential cooking gadgets and includes trusted brands such as KitchenAid and Cuisinart — plus, everything is $50 or less.
