Domestic Tools

I guess finding myself now a homeowner, I’m buying household appliances now. This purchase of a Braun immersion/stick blender was prompted by the need to make whipped cream and not finding the old hand crank mixer we used to have. I also could not locate the electric mixer. Both probably long gone. It appears manual mixers do not exist in stores anymore, there was one at the Kahala cookware store, but it was a horrible made in China affair. If it were an antique it might be kinda cool, as it was constructed like something from centuries ago. So then my search turned to alternatives. I didn’t want to really get a conventional electric mixer as I didn’t see myself using it often, but then looked into stick blenders. After some searching, I settled on this Braun I found in stock at the local Target. It’s a good step above the base cheap models that were more available in the stores. The beauty of immersion blendesr is you can blend and/or mix in whatever container your working with. Aside from the usual blender tip, it came with a whisk and mini food processor attachments, which maxes it multi use. The removable tip design makes cleaning easy too.

The whisk attachment made easy work of afore mentioned whip cream, which went into the 1-1-1-1 ice cream. Some time later, I did the tomatillo sauce for chili verde, and switched to the processor to made a salsa. Then yesterday I finally got around to doing a frozen fruit smoothie. This blender so far has worked well. Nicely designed, made in Romania, seems solid. Powerfull enough for most household use, I’m sure its not powerful enough to crush ice though, it took a while to get through the fresh frozen strawberries (wait, is that term like the fresh natto sign I chuckle at?). All in all I’m happy with the purchase.
