Convenient for combining ingredients quickly and easily, a stick blender can be a real time-saver in the kitchen. Homes that don’t require a full size food processor may benefit from keeping a stick blender handy for those occasions when you don’t want to mix by hand.
Many people use their stick blenders to create milkshakes and smoothies, however there are many more uses for these nifty appliances. Making soup, mayonnaise, puree, hollandaise, hummus, and baby food can be done in a jiffy with the help of a stick blender to combine the ingredients.
Often a stick blender can substitute for a food processor, mixer or whisk, especially if you choose a model with the appropriate attachments and accessories. Selected stick blenders come with kneading hooks for making dough, ice crushing blades, milk frother attachments, potato mashers, chopping bowls and more.
Look for a stick blender with dishwasher-safe parts to make your life easier when it comes time to clean up. Selected stick blenders come with detachable tools for cleaning themselves as well, making maintenance even easier.
Many blenders come with their own beakers with sturdy, non-slip bases that can double as measuring utensils for managing your ingredients. Stick blenders with many speed settings have the power to blend whatever you put in front of them, and extra-long power cords can also come in handy.
Reviews of stick blenders from Bosch, Breville, Sunbeam, Morphy Richards and Philips are available on Appliances Online – base your comparison on the thoughts of other Australian customers to find the stick blender that best suits the needs of your household.
