Merry Christmas indeed

A few months ago my food processor died, and sometime before that my stick blender died so I was basically down to my blender for fast spinning choppy items in the kitchen.  My local grocer had a promotion that involved collecting stamps for food you buy and it could be used for getting free or discounted Cuisinart appliances.  Most of them seemed to relate to coffee and since I don't drink the stuff, and my wife only drinks it when the nice people at Starbucks make it we where mostly meh.  They did have a Cuisinart Immersion Hand Blender and it looked to be pretty solidly made so we decided to get that one.  I'm solidly impressed with this little thing, it has a 200watt motor and is really pretty powerful.  It doesn't feel cheaply made at all, and I believe that it will last longer than the last one I owned.

It's fairly well rated over at Amazon and I can see why.  I kind of wish I had the old fashioned malt cup to go with mine because I really use it most of the time to make milkshakes.  I'm eating one right as I type this in fact!

  2. Your page is being stupid - this is my third attempt to comment. We probably have the same immersion blender & I never thought to get a malt cup. That is what T is going to get for his birthday. You are a genius.

  5. We actually have one of these, and we got it for the same reason you did. I was skeptical, but it's been holding up!
