When we polled our lovely Facebook followers about their favorite kitchen tools, quite a few people referenced stick/immersion blenders as either being something they have and love or something they covet! If you’ve never used an immersion blender, it is definitely a tool that every baker and cook should have in their gadget arsenal. The Viking Hand blender houses a 300 watt motor and includes both a blade and whisk attachment. It’s quite small, yet has a cord that reaches up to 5 feet which provides convenience when moving throughout the kitchen.
I am such a soup lover in the wintertime. There is something so comforting about escaping the frigid winter air to enjoy a creamy bowl of piping hot soup, which is why, as soon as my Viking Professional Hand blender arrived, I decided to try it out by making one of my favorites, Broccoli-Cheese soup. This hand blender was easy to use and I couldn’t get over how quickly I achieved the creamy texture I was craving.
As I have found through my years of culinary exploration, an increase in gadgets results in a decrease in space; however, this blender is quite compact, so it takes up very little space, even in my cramped kitchen. Not only is it easy to use and store, it’s extremely versatile and will help you attack all of your culinary endeavors with ease. including soups, smoothies, creams, and even chopping ice.
