Immersion Blender

I'm always amazed by how much I get out of my immersion blender. I stick it right into my pan to make the smoothest sauces and gravies, and I pulse it in my pot for chunky soups. I can make fresh salsa, I can whip cream, I can chop nuts, and I can even blend single servings of fresh fruit shakes, all with one hand behind my back! —Missy Bozarth, Buffalo, Iowa
