In all my years spent in the kitchen, I’ve realized proper kitchen tools are key to a fun, easy and tasty experience. Recently, I’ve been blending and puree-ing to my heart’s desire with a new gadget from Cuisinart called the Smart Stick Hand Blender.
This small but powerful device quickly purees soups, blends batter, and mixes beverages without having to transfer your food to a separate container. It’s actually very quiet (good for you moms out there with kids who still nap) and it has an easy-to-rinse pop-off blade. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe which makes it even better in my book.
I recently used my immersion blender to create Sweet Cherry and Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce, but there are plenty of other recipes that would also be made easy with a tool like this. The Home Shopping Network has a YouTube video about this handy little product which I thought was helpful to see how it works.
Do you have any favorite recipes you make using an immersion blender? Any other gadgets I need to know about for my own kitchen?Tags: cuisinart
