Hand held immersion blenders allow you to mix milkshakes or smoothies easily and quickly. Put some ingredients in a container and insert the durable stainless steel blending barrel and mixing whisk. It is also a good tool for blending hot foods. Simple blending tasks like beating eggs, mixing pancake batter, making salad dressings and mixing homemade sauces are all good applications for an immersion blender. Convenient ergonomic handle and switch for easy one-handed operation allows for multitasking around the kitchen. A half-turn detaches the dishwasher-safe barrel and whisk, making cleanup a snap.
