Kitchen appliances and gadgets come in all shapes and sizes--and that is a good thing. When one style doesn't fit your liking, chances are another model might do the trick.
Immersion blenders are handy little devices that let cooks blend soups and sauces right in the pot. However, some of the available options out there can be uncomfortable to hold and operate at the same time.
The Breville BSB400XL Control Grip Immersion Blender utilizes an ergonomic trigger switch to set the action in motion, but a comfortable design is only part of the story. Extending use beyond simmering sauces and sumptuous soups the handheld blender can also tackle smoothies and light chopping duties. Included along with the stick blender is a chopper bowl as well as a blending jug, which not only nest together for easy storage, but can be used together so cooks can get a grip on the blending jar handle while using the chopper bowl.
All too often an otherwise fine piece of equipment gets buried in the back of the cupboard due to some simple oversight that would have made its operation easier. Some finer details round out this handy appliance such as nonslip bases on the work vessels as well as a soft-touch grip on the handle. With features that are all designed to facilitate use, the immersion blender looks to stay ready for action--front and center in the cupboard.
