    Great for pureed soups!

    I used to make my pureed soups in a blender, but that was always a hassle (move the cooked food to blender...blend....pour into another bowl....) but now I can just puree them in the pan they were cooked in. Less mess! And FAST! Has two speeds. Makes great homemade mayonnaise, too! Washes up easily, too!

    I like this a lot, it's easy to use and CLEAN! The only gripe I have is when I am making a particularly thick soup and turning the unit, 1-2 times it became unclicked and I had to reconnect it. Otherwise, great for my soups and quick mixing! I also gifted one of these.

    Got this to easily mix soups, mashed cauliflower, etc and it's really a time saver. Mixes well, easy to use, but I wish you didn't have to hold the power button while mixing. Overall a good purchase

    This is my first immersible mixer, so have nothing else to compare it with. Thought it'd mix up ice cream for a shake, better than it does, but still works. Made creamed soup, and did excellent job.

    An immersion blender is a must have item for making healthy, creamy homemade soups with control over sodium and fat levels. This brand is reliable, easy to operate, and comes in beautiful colors.

    I wish I'd bought this product years ago. It makes preparing soup SO much easier. Not having to pour ingredients from a large container to a blender and back is a great savings. The immersion blender is a great value.

    Used it making soups, salad dressings, sauces, chutneys and salsas and it works like a dream. Clean up is easy, it feels sturdy, and it gets the job done.

    Hand Blender - Great for Soups

    I ordered this 2-Speed Hand Blender online because I wanted to make soups without transferring the hot contents in my pot to a regular blender. This hand blender works great although it is a bit heavy.

    I LOVE this thing. I use it way more than I thought I would. Makes the creamiest soups and home made pasta sauce. I love the whisk attachment (I bought that separately).

    Only disappointment is the lack of a small shredder which many of the other hand held's have. Nonetheless this works really well, is ideal for soups and smoothies and the price point is very good.

    I needed a hand mixer for soups and shakes. It is worth buying. Great for doing soups and for a single shake. Not as messy or as much clean up as using a blender. Portable which makes it great.

    I used this once to mix up some items for a pie. It worked awesomely and quick. Parts went into the dishwasher and were clean afterwards. Looking forward to making soups with it soon!

    I love using this immersion tool to make creamy soups. If you want soups with a creamy texture without using a lot of dairy, try this kitchen helper.

    I used this for scallion soup, so much better then taking out and purring in a blender. I can't wait to use the KitchenAid hand blender this winter to make more soups on the stove!
