Have you ever made a soup or a sauce and have to go through the process of pouring it into a blender or food processor? And then it is too hot and it splatters hot liquid all over you? And then you have to pour it back in the pan and some how it doesn't all make it back in and it drips all over the floor?
If that sounds familiar, then the Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender will change your life!
This is a great little appliance that you can use to blend up soups or sauces while it is still in the pan! The way it works is you can either blend some or all of the soup or sauce. An immersion blender saves so much time and hassle. When you have one, I think you will see that you will use it more then you think. I end up partially blending soups that I never did before. Also, if you make a sauce, you don't have to chop up the garlic,onion, or tomatoes so small, you can just use the immersion blender after it has cooked!
I recommend the Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender, but there are several types you can get. Immersion blenders can be found pretty much anywhere from Walmart to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to Amazon.com The price depends on which kind you buy, but they range between 15-100 dollars.
