An immersion blender is a kitchen tool used for blending soups, sauces, and other liquids. An immersion blender is basically a stick with blender blades at the end of it.
It’s Different From a Regular Blender
How an immersion blender differs from a regular blender is that rather than pouring the liquid into the blender and turning it on, the immersion blender is inserted into the container of liquid (like a pot of soup, for instance) and turned on. You would then sort of swirl the immersion blender throughout the liquid to ensure that it’s uniformly blended.
Powerful Enough to Process All Kinds of Foods
A good immersion blender should be powerful enough to process all kinds of foods, including cooked meats, potatoes, vegetables and so on. Some home immersion blenders are intended mainly for blending drinks, making smoothies and so on. Obviously, the more heavy-duty models will be more expensive.
