How to Choose an Immersion Blender

Updated on September 25, 2013

Immersion Blender

Immersion Blenders Should be Dishwasher Safe

If you don't have an immersion blender you should really look into getting one, they are one of the best kitchen utensils you will ever buy. An immersion blender is so much more practical than a regular blender since you can do your blending right in the pot. In addition if you get one of the better ones it can also fill the role of a food processor.

The most important thing that you are going to want to look at when you are considering the best immersion blender is to make sure that you get one that is dishwasher safe. They are of course going to be used with food which means that you will have to clean it after every use. This can be a real hassle if you are washing it by hand every time. A surprising number of immersion blenders can't be put in the dishwasher so make sure that you check.

The next thing that you are going to want to look at when you are choosing an immersion blender is what it is made of. A lot of the cheaper ones are made of plastic but these should be avoided. The problem with plastic is that if you get food on them they tend to stain and you can't get them clean again. The other problem is that plastic blenders are not all that durable. Far better options are stainless steel or brushed chrome.

Power is Important in an Immersion Blender

Power is another important factor that you are going to have to look at when you are choosing an immersion blender. You are going to want to make sure that you have ample power to allow you to blend anything that you need to. In addition a lot of modern immersion blenders also act as food processors allowing you to put a chopping attachment on them. This requires a lot of power in order to get through the tougher foods.

That brings us to another feature that you are going to want to look at when you are choosing an immersion blender, look for one that includes the chopping attachment. This will greatly increase the amount of use that you get out of your blender since you will be able to use it for a lot of things that you wouldn't be able to do without this attachment.

Check the Warranty on your Immersion Blender

The last thing to look at when you are choosing an immersion blender is the warranty that comes with it. Admittedly they are not all that expensive but still you don't want to have to pay for it out of your own pocket if it does break. Most of the better ones will come with a warranty so make sure that you check on what it is covered and for how long.

There are lots of places that you can buy your immersion blender so you are going to want to shop around. You will probably find that the best prices are to be found online so this is probably the best place to buy one.
