I’ve had my immersion blender for at least 25 years, and it is one one my favorite kitchen tools. Perfect for blending soups without the mess and explosion of a blender or food processor. It’s also super convenient for making frozen coffee drinks or smoothies, or quickly whipping up cream. Mine is Braun, and I don’t think it’s made anymore, but these are two that I have purchased as gifts for family members and recommend.
