The Bamix immersion blender is perfect for those of us who do a lot of cooking from scratch. While there are a lot of immersion blenders on the market, this one has stood up to the test of everything from blending large kettles of hot soup, to making frozen fruit sorbets, to even blending homemade soap.

Even though I own both a traditional food processor and blender, I find myself turning more often than not to the Bamix blender for a number of reasons.

  1. Quicker:Rather than having to set up a large appliance, using the Bamix is simply a matter of “grab and go”.
  2. Easier:Because I’m not limited by the bowl attached to my appliance, I can use the ideal container for the job I’m doing. For instance, soup and sauce can be blended directly in the pan on the stove, sorbet can be blended directly out of the freezer in its cold bowl.
  3. Cleaning up is a snap:When I’m done using my Bamix, I simply since it off in the sink, and put it away. That’s it!

The four attachments that come with the immersion blender each serve a unique purpose. The mini food processor attachment makes chopping onions and grinding flax seeds a breeze, while the immersible blade is perfect for blending sauces or soups.

I personally use the aerator the most for blending lye soap, and though some batches take as much as twelve minutes of blending, I have been impressed that not once has my Bamix blender overheated.

Above all else, I love my Bamix blender because it’s long lasting. I’ve had mine for six years, and it’s still going strong, blending my husband’s cappuccino every morning, and doing the jobs I need it to do the rest of the day.
