Sure there are other tools you could use to make smoothies, soups, and other purees … but they’re nowhere near as cool as one of these!
We’re not sure how we survived before we got an immersion blender. It’s so incredibly handy to use for blending Baked Potato Soup or Pumpkin Squash Soup (from Issue 1 of our eMagazine). But it’s not just for soups … discover more ways to use it in this short video.
Here’s the one we use:
An immersion blender makes amazing soups, smoothies and more because it creates ultra-creamy purees. You can blend either hot or cold foods (use caution with hot) right in the bowl or saucepan without having to pour things back and forth. It’s also very portable and makes for easy clean-up. To blend, simply wiggle it a little bit up and down in the food. Just remember to keep the blade below the surface of the food while blending to avoid splatters. Be sure the blade is fully submersed before turning the blender on and turn off before pulling it out!
