How Immersion Blenders Are Used

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 172

Immersion blenders are handheld, easy to use, food preparation appliances that can be purchased for as little as twenty dollars. These gadgets are popular for a number of reasons, but primarily because they can be used to make a variety of different foods taste better. Whether you're using them for soups or iced drinks, these blenders are essential for properly preparing a number of different food items.

The most common use of an immersion blender is to thicken soups. They work great at blending potatoes into soup bases, which helps the soup to become more creamier without using corn starch or flour. So you can make soups taste better without additional calories.

Beyond that, however, there are literally hundreds of different uses for these versatile tools including making baby food, hummus, whipped creamed, mayonnaise, and even smoothies. Whether you need to puree, blend, whisk, or froth, an immersion blender is the right tool for the job.

Best of all, many of these blenders come with replaceable heads that allow you to do even more. Some models, for example, include whisk and chopping attachments. While other models can be mounted to a wall, essentially replacing the need for tabletop mixers. A well-made blender can replace many of your smaller kitchen appliances such as milk frothers, traditional blenders, and even food processors.

Using an immersion blender is as simple as placing it down into a pot or bowl, immersing it into the food, and pressing the on button. Some blenders can immerse into liquid up to eight inches deep. These blenders are particularly appropriate when processing large quantities of food or when using tall pots.

Because immersion blenders are so lightweight and compact, they're much more convenient to use than traditional handheld mixers. Once finished, these blenders are also easy to clean up. For the majority of them, the blending head detaches from the motor and then it can either be rinsed under water or placed into a dishwasher. Since the blades are typically made from quality stainless steel, you don't have to worry about them ever rusting.

Unfortunately, many cooks today still view the immersion blender as an unnecessary gadget. This couldn't be further from the truth. Because of their versatility and ease of use, blenders are essential for cooks and budding chefs who prepare a wide variety of foods. Given the fact that they're so inexpensive and capable of performing many preparations that will replace more expensive kitchen gadgetry, buying a quality immersion blender is a great investment.
