It is said that we eat with our eyes first. There can be no doubt that when a dish is brought to the table, we drink in its aroma and visual appeal first, but when we dig in, no matter how great it looks, it better taste good. Since texture is key in so many dishes, it's no wonder chefs often use immersion blenders when faced with the need to blend. Other than the fact that they work quickly and efficiently with pots and pans, they also offer precise control in that one can see exactly what they are doing--and when enough blending is enough.
For home use, immersion blenders are not only convenient, but they also offer home cooks the same visual control over their dishes.
