My immersion blender, also known as a stick blender, is an old kitchen friend. When I need to blend something but the quantities are small or I’m in a hurry, it’s easy to use and very easy to clean – just rinse it under a tap. You can also use immersion blenders in a variety of containers – saucepans, large cups, and bowls for example.
