Blend Hot Liquids Like The Pros With A Stick Blender
This compact kitchen tool is a handy way to puree liquids in the pot.
You may have never used a stick blender like the Cuisinart 2-speed Smart Stick but they are quite popular among chefs for pureeing soups and sauces directly in the pot without having to transfer the hot liquids to a traditional blender.
In addition to the convenience factor, pureeing hot liquids in a blender can be dangerous as the steam will expand in the enclosed blender, blowing the lid off and showering you and the kitchen with scalding soup or sauce.
While the stick blender is also great due to the small amount of space it takes up, I actually prefer the KitchenAid 3-speed hand blender set that offers a removable whisk attachment and mini food processor.
