Product Review: Kitchen Aid 8 in. Depth Immersion Blender

What: 8 in. Depth Immersion Blender.

The Lowdown: This is not just another kitchen gadget. It can be used to quickly and efficiently make applesauce, creamy soup, drinks—nearly anything a standard blender can do, but with less fuss. Simply immerse it into the mixing bowl, pot, or provided mixing cup, and blend. Best of all, the blending part is dishwasher safe, so cleanup is a snap. List price is $69.99.

Tip: The blender shouldn’t be used for ice because it can dull the blades.

Yea or Nay: It’;s a little pricey, but if you need a tool that can blend multiple items with less fuss than a traditional blender, it can’t be beat. Target is currently offering this blender for $49.99 (29% off).

Buy it:  @ Target, Linens-N-Things, Wal-Mart, etc.
