    Default immersion blender


    Does anyone have an immersion blender they love that is still being
    sold? I donated my last one (Braun?) to a thrift shop because it just
    didn't have enough vortex to draw things into the blades.

    I may ask for one for Christmas (I don't mind getting appliances as
    gifts. Looking forward to any advice you might have for me.

    On my website down at the right bottom of the page is an Amazon roll
    box. I have the Cuisinart stick that is on sale as shown in that
    box. I love it. It has a nice big power vortex. I use it for tons
    of things.

    I have a Bamix and I really love it. It has lasted for several years now,
    and it really seems to have all the power I need for even thick stuff. I use
    it just about every day so it gets a lot of use. It's been a long time since
    I bought it, but I think it was a little over $100.00. My friend has a
    Cuisinart immersion that was around $40.00 to $50.00 and she loves it. I had
    a Braun a long time ago, but as you say, the one I had didn't do the job
    either.

    I have one that is a work horse. Expensive yes..but it is recommended
    by a lot of professionals. It is a Bamix. Really does have a boat
    motor as the engine.

    W-S has it on sale..

    I buy cheap ones. I've gone through several. No problems with any of them
    except for the cordless one. It didn't have enough oopmh. I don't pay
    attention to brand. If it is under $20 I just get it and expect it to last
    maybe 2 to 5 years.

    I have a Braun product that may be this one: http://tinyurl.com/czm4grd
    that is 11 years old and still doing all those things for me. It doesn't
    say who makes that, but the wattage (much higher than many>) and
    accessories, which I use more than the blender, are much the same.

    I like my Bosch mixxo MSM6A70 cordless immersion blender. Personally, I
    would not consider anything but a cordless model, as I do not see cables
    hovering over and about hot liquid containers as a good idea...

    Otherwise (and posted before), the Swiss-made ESGE Zauberstab stick
    blenders are the highest-regarded retail ones here. There are several
    models and the cheapest ones can be found for around EUR 80. I believe
    they are marketed under the "Bamix" name in the USA and the cheaper
    models cost around $100 or a bit more. Braun models are not quite as
    highly regarded here, but still considered good and have the advantage
    of costing rather less, possibly being better value for money.

    I have the cheapo all-plastic Braun stick blender (~$20). Not sure
    what you mean about not enough vortex action. My cheapo Braun has so
    much vortex action, my biggest problem is trying to control the heavy
    sucking vortex and preventing the thing from clamping solidly on the
    bottom of the pan like a damn remora fish. Not sure what the wattage
    on the motor is, but it's reliable as a .....well, a stick!

    I've never had a complaint about my really, really, really old Braun.

    Here's a professional quality NSF rated immersion blender with removeable
    blade assembly at a consumer price:
    http://www.servu-online.com/Food-Pre...on-Blender.asp

    Here's another, also a Waring, similar but different model number, and again
    for sale at a consumer price. This one also shows some available
    accessories, but I'm not in favor of trying to make an immersion blender
    into something it isn't.

    http://www.yourdelight.com/waring_immersion_blender.htm

    And here is a cordless model if you really want to splurge at $225:
    http://www.yourdelight.com/WARING_WSB25.html

    I personally have had good experiences with Waring equipment.

    As far as the multitude of gee-whiz immsersion blenders out there with every
    geegaw known to man included as attachments, I recommend avoiding those at
    all costs. I've seen several friends purchase them, most notoriously a
    Cuisinart, and they all turned out to be unreliable junk which soon ended up
    on the scrap heap. If you want an immsersion blender, IMO the best course of
    action is to buy one where the price you pay reflects money spent on
    designing a good quality immersion blender rather than add on gee-whiz
    gadgets.

    In my experience you are wrong. Mine does have a big high wattage motor,
    but I have been using it at home and professionally for 11 years and even
    mix breads with the dough hooks.

    Love my Cuisinart. Had a cheap one. It wasn't good and it broke too
    quickly.

    I risk some smartAlec answers here but I'm okay with it. What is an
    immersion blender good for? And, I'm thinking, wouldn't I be much more
    likely to use one if it was 'on ready' hanging in the pantry in a charger?
    If I had to stop and plug it in and worry about dragging a cord across a
    stove top - that doesn't sound good. Does an immersion blender have a
    special use where it's better than whatever usually works? Polly

    I use mine for lots of things, mixing eggs for scrambling, into the pot for
    something like squash soup, cocoa, lumpy gravy, use for quick whipped cream,
    making mayonnaise, and many every day things. I keep mine plugged in since
    it's out of the way but still stove accessible, also clean up is a breeze.

    I use it for curries. The curry powder and cornstarch
    can be lumpy if mixed by hand, but become totally smooth
    with the blender. I also blend in roasted red peppers,
    and they are also pureed by the machine.

    I've made an interesting mustard by blending a Dijon
    mustard with roasted red peppers.

    I've gotten the idea that Cuisinart is not as dependable a brand as
    they used to be.
    I have the Cuisinart DCC-450BK Coffeemaker, and it has serious design
    flaws.

    Any kind of soup you used to have to pour into the blender
    in batches. No more, now you just blend it in the pot, and
    cleanup is a snap. I'd turn off the burner first, naturally.

    I'm finding that to be true with what used to be dependable brands too.
