It's small, but mighty.

Think of it as a blender or food processor on a stick: just as powerful but way more nimble and easier to store. Use it to turn cooked veggies into bisques, to blend herbs and nuts into pestos or to smooth out gravy right in the pan. Unlike those stationary blades on traditional blenders and food processors, an immersion blender can reach into the depths and edges of your pots, pans and even tall glasses, leaving no chunks behind and allowing you full control over texture. Just point and pulverize.

It reduces mess.

Forget transferring batches of hot soup from pot to blender and back to pot (yikes!). Immersion blenders do it all right in your cooking vessel, no matter how much you're making, saving you a step--and the time it takes to do the dishes!
