Prepara has managed to miniaturise the handheld electric mixer your parents used by eliminating one of the spinning metal whisks and swapping the power cord for a set of four AAA batteries. Not only is it lighter and easier to use, it will also free up a bunch of drawer space.
Using the compact blender, you can beat a batch of batter for up to two hours with a fresh set of batteries, and its rubber-edged blade will scrape the side of bowls clean in the process. It's also just $US20, so you can buy one for your kitchen at home, and get one for your next glamping trip — because who wants to rough it when it means you can't have pancakes for breakfast?
