My new kitchen toy...

by Barb Freda » Fri Mar 24, 2006 11:04 am

I've owned an immersion blender forever...but I bought it for $20 long ago...so when I read CI's write up and recommendation of the Kitchenaid for $50? I had to have it...sold out most spots (well, not the fancy one with extra attachements for another $30), I found a brand new one for sale on Ebay..just got it and LOVE it...

It's got speed settings and the blender part detaches from the body and can be washed in the dishwasher...Plus it's metal, so it won't wilt when I plunge into a hot pot of soup for pureeing (my cheapie one was kinda an oval from just such use...)

Good tools...love 'em.

Barb, it's too easy! Just write the link. Either the www. or the http:// will make it a hotlink. You don't need to use the "URL" tags at all unless you want to make a nice pretty embedded link.

Dag Nabbit!? Nice use of Southern slang for a Pennsylvania girl ...

We have a Cuisinart that I just love -- great for sauces and gravies. Same detachable body for easy cleaning.

I've got one of the first Brauns...

...when it was actually a German company, that is. It's hurkier than the newer ones, and once I dropped it and permanently repaired the crack with a flexible C clamp. Looks like hell in other words, but it's a loyal old dog of a thing and I'd feel like a chump for booting it out.

But that Kitchen Aid sure looks good.
