Why you Need an Immersion Blender

Reasons to get an Immersion Blender

One of the most useful kitchen devices to come along in recent years is the immersion blender . They offer a lot of advantages over regular blenders, to the point where it would make little sense to buy a regular blender. A good immersion blender will make most of cooking a much simpler task so they are well worth the money.

The main reason that you are going to want to have an immersion blender is that it is a much more practical way to puree something than using a regular blender. You will find that a lot of recipes call for you to puree whatever you are cooking, this is especially true of soups but it will come up with sauces a lot as well. If all you have is a regular blender you will have to put the soup or sauce or whatever into the blender and then puree it. You then have to transfer it back to the pot to continue cooking. With an immersion blender you don't have to do this since you can puree it right in the pot.

Immersion Blenders are Safer

The obvious problem with having to transfer whatever you are cooking to the blender and then back to the pot is that it is a real hassle. This is especially true if you have more soup or sauce than will fit into your blender. In that case you will have to transfer the contents that have been pureed into a third pot and do the whole thing in batches. This obviously takes a lot of time and creates a lot of dishes that need to be washed. There is also a safety issue with pouring hot liquids into the blender, the small opening makes it very easy to spill.

Another problem with using a regular blender is that the blades are located only on the bottom. That means that you you are blending a lot of something it will take a long time since all of the stuff at the top has to work its way down to the bottom. With an immersion blender you can move the blades around so that you can go right to the areas that still have chunky bits. This allows you to blend your product better and do it much faster.

Immersion Blenders Save Space

Immersion blenders also offer the advantage of allowing you to use them as food processors, eliminating another tool that you have to have in your kitchen. The better immersion blenders come with a chopping attachment that allows you to use your immersion blender to chop up foods. Being able to do two jobs with one tool is a great way to save money.

There are a lot of other benefits to an immersion blender , they are easier to clean than a regular blender. They don't take up any counter space, an issue in most kitchens and they are cheaper than regular blenders. Clearly it is well worth it to get rid of your regular blender and look into an immersion blender.
