Every Kitchen Needs a Stick Blender
I have had a stick blender in the kitchen forever…
They are one of those gadgets you never knew you needed but once you have one you will never be without it.
Got lumpy gravy…stick blender! Need smooth creamy soup…stick blender! How about finely chopped nuts, whipped cream, light airy eggs or 10-second breadcrumbs all without having to drag out the stand/hand mixer or the food processor? Stick Blender!
These are now super affordable tools for the average kitchen and can be found under $30 for a base model which will do 90% of what you need on a day to day basis.
If you are looking for a heavy duty workhorse for crushing ice, specialized blades or even battery operated, you can throw in a few extra dollars and upgrade a little, but I am usually happy with my plug-in single chopping blade with the whisk attachment.
