KitchenAid Immersion Blender
Not sure why it took me so long to get one of these but I finally picked one up. This was purchased at Walmart for around $50. I didn’t think I would need the cup that comes with the unit but now I’m not sure what I would do without it. Personally the most attractive thing about this blender is how easy it cleans up. I have used food processors, blenders, you name it but now this is my go too gadget. There is only two pieces to this unit plus the cup. You just attach the motor unit to the blade portion and screw it in, plug it in and your ready to go. There are two speeds available but I always start off with the low speed and make sure I’ve blended the bigger ingredients such as ice or frozen berries first then I switch to the second speed to froth things up a bit. Make sure you hold the cup steady on you counter while blending. When you’re done you just unplug it unscrew and give the blade portion a nice warm rinse. Done. It has come in indispensable for making dressings, mashed broccoli and of course smoothies.
