Hand Blender Comparison | Cuisinart vs KitchenAid

Hand Blenders or immersion blenders are definitely the most recent gizmo to be included in the blender marketplace. A hand blender provides the simplicity of enabling you to blend items directly in the saucepan, drinking cup or any additional container without needing to transfer the items into a blender carafe. They are ideal for mixing, blending and whipping soft foods. Many models may be used to blend smoothies and protein shakes. Whenever you buy, make certain your hand blender is powerful enough to take care of ice and frozen fruits. Clean-up for hand blenders is a reasonably simple job. Nearly all have detachable blades that are easily cleaned and in some instances dishwasher safe. The blenders described below all have high rankings from the reviewers at Amazon.com. Personally, i like to check reviews from the owners of the item. They've absolutely no ulterior motive to lie to you. Amazon.com has an impeccable reputation as a safe place to purchase on the internet.

I have a Kitchenaid Artisan mixer that I love and use several times a week, but also have a Kitchenaid hand blender that I pull out and use almost daily, because it's so handy and easy to clean afterward. Your hub details an excellent comparison of the top major brands, but I will always be a Kitchenaid fan because i've always been happy with this brands performance. Thanks for a great Hub!
