An immersion blender, or hand blender is the most versatile kitchen tool I own that I use on a daily basis. It saves time and effort: no need to blend in small batches, no need to wash a food processor—just rinse it off and toss it back in the drawer. But which brand is best? I really like this Braun as it comes with a whipping attachment as well as a chopper. The blender tool is the most used attachment in my kitchen, but the other attachments are equally handy. I use my Braun immersion blender in the morning for a quick smoothie/protein shake, in the afternoon to puree easy soups for lunch, and in the evening for everything from frothing and blending to making a frozen drink. I will refer to it often in future posts as it is an indispensable must have tool for just about any level of cooking, healthy living and whips up a margarita in a minute flat.
