Accessible Cooking: Immersion Blender

Sometimes, things need to be liquified!

Blenders are wonderful tools for lots of things. However, there are sometimes when adding things to a blender just adds another whole step. Things can get messy and it results in just something else to clean. Cleaning blenders also can be complicated with unscrewing parts and getting really close to the blades.

Immersion Blenders are really fun and can be very inexpensive. The least expensive one I've found through an online search is only 10 dollars.

Things I have used my immersion blender for:
Fresh Whipped Cream

One of the really good things about this tool is it can help with making some recipes that normally require repetitive movements, like whipped cream or mayonnaise, a lot easier to do. This tool also helps me make some soups quickly. Sticking this little thing in a huge pot of soup to make it go from chunky to smooth is very simple. I am also in control of how pureed I want things to be, which you can't always get from a blender.

There is sometimes a risk of splashing depending on the contain you are using or how close to the surface you use this tool. It takes a little trial and error, but I think it is worth it. Clean up is also very simple and doesn't require you to disassemble the whole thing.

Rating: 4 Spoons!
It takes a little bit of time to get use to it, but it does really help to make things easier.
