Right now, Amazon has the Cuisinart Immersion Hand Blender in Chrome for just $24.83 – normally $55 – a savings of 55%. That’s a great price on a serious time-saver.
I love my immersion hand blenders — aka the “zhu zhu sticks”. I have three of them! One meat, one dairy – and one for Pesach fleishig. I love being able to “zhuzh” my soup right in the pot, and since I make a lot blended soups, it’s a major time-saver for me.
The one thing I’ve learned is that even though the $9 immersion sticks have a tempting price tag, they DON’T LAST! Their blender bit is encased in plastic, and when you put that into a hot, hot pot of soup… well, you can imagine the rest.
That’s why I love these Cuisinart ones – not only the blades but the whole bottom bit is metal, so no melting in the soup pot!
Thanks, Bargain Blessings.
