Immersion Hand Blender Reviewed

Easy Way To Blend or Puree Foods

I don't own an immersion hand blender yet but I want one pretty darned bad. So, I thought I would review the one that I think that I will purchase in the near future. 

The main reason that I want one of these hand held blenders is that I love tomato soup and I want to be able to make my own. In order to get the correct consistency the soup needs to be pureed. Now, cooking up a big pot of tomatoes for soup and then having to pour batches of it into a regular blender is a pain in the royal keester. For one thing there is the most likely possibility that I will burn myself or spill quite a lot while trying to maneuver the contents from pot to blender. There is also the time involved! Not to mention that the clean-up will be a hot mess! I would have to clean up the pot that the soup is cooked in, the blender and the pot that I would need to put the pureed soup into while going through the blending process. An immersion blender solves all of those obstacles. 

With a hand held blender I can just puree the tomatoes in the pot that they have cooked in eliminating the use of so many tools, the burn factor and the spill factor. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! 

So, I have been looking at my options and there are several to choose from. I can go the expensive route or I can try to save myself a little money. I decided that maybe the best route to pursue is the one that most folks seem to be happy with. So, I looked at ones that have the best reviews and then picked the one that is marked as Amazon's choice; which by the way, happens to have the best review history.

Here is the model that I believe I will purchase after the holidays. There is a possibility that Santa might leave me one so that is why I plan to wait. 

I like that it has two attachments. One for blending and a whisk. So, I will be able to puree all sorts of foods or easily whisk ingredients for many recipes. There are six speeds so that should be handy, too. I will be able to make smooth and wonderful tomato soup or wonderful fruit smoothies. I think my possibilities will only be limited by my own imagination.

I think it might be helpful if I let you on something. Depending on the cook these hand blenders are known as immersion blenders or sometimes they are called emulsion blenders. Those two words are describing the same tool.

How about you? Do you own an immersion hand blender? If not, do you think it would be something that you would use? Not only do I plan on using mine a lot but I think this is a wonderful idea as a wedding gift or a holiday gift for your favorite cook.

  1. I don't have an immersion hand blender yet, but I can see how it would be very beneficial to have around the kitchen for sure. I am thinking this would be awesome to have when making jam too.

  3. Sure would be much simpler to use than a regular blender (which I always hate cleaning up). Thanks for the recommendation, Beverly.

  4. I don't have one of these handy gadgets yet, so like you I will wait and see if Santa happens to deliver one to the "naughty but nice" person. All of my children have them and swear by them as a tool everyone should have in their kitchens. So, kids, are you listening.....Grammie Olivia could sure use one of these.

  8. My mom loved hers, and left it behind for me. For some reason I've never used it. Probably because I haven't yet found where she filed the instructions. I agree it would be easier to use than a blender. I may look online for the instructions and give it a whirl. Thanks for the reminder.

  9. I love my immersion hand blender and hope you got yours for Christmas. I got mine when my daughter was a baby to make baby food, but over the years it has been used for a lot of different soups!
