Of course I do not have the large number of posts that some have here, but I do use my immersion blender :-) . I use it primarily to thicken soups by either processing some of the veggies or beans, or to make the gazpacho less chunky ;-)

In any case, it is a convenience like having a "bread maker". You don't really need it, and it takes up space, but it does have it's uses.

Edited because I forgot to say welcome :-)

I like that mine comes apart for the dishwasher too. I do not always do that though because I found a very easy way to clean it. Just put a little water in a tall cup. Put in a couple drops of soap. Still the blended in and turn it on. The just rinse under running water. It is now clean.

GB - I forgot to mention that luxury. I also do that with the food processor as well as the blender.

Thanks for adding to my forgetfulness.

Hi APOP,
Great to have you here, you're gonna love it.
I've got the basic harry homeowner Braun immersion blender and I like it alot.
Is it a necessity? Probably not, but it sure is darn convenient for sauces and soups and it really doesn't take up that much space in your kitchen. Mine even came with a mini food processor bowl attachment that I've never used (I usually just end up using my chefs knife), but I may try it one day
