I agree with GB. Check out this immersion blender.

That is nice Andy, is that a good price for these? Seems reasonable. Do they ever come with additional blades or they only need the one?
Sorry to be a pain, LOL. And thank you GB for the suggestions and help.

I have the Cuisinart hand blender, but I can't tell you a good retail price.

I picked up mine in a thrift store for a couple of bucks.

Do you mean a hand blender or immersion blender? Or are they the same and different from a hand mixer? A hand mixer I have, with standard mixer and dough mixer. Never used the dough mixer on it.

Hand blender/immersion blender are the same thing.

A hand mixer is that same old mixer that mom used and grandma to make cakes and stuff.

OK thanks, that is what I thought you meant and that a hand mixer is different from a hand blender.
The wife is out and about today, I may ask her to swing by the thrift store and see if they have some. If they do, I will limit her to a Cuisinart with a 200 motor and if not I will just have her write down the name and power and then research it.
Sounds like you guys like your Cuisinarts.

I don't know how many watts mine is. The writing is too small.

But my Cuisinart hand blender is called the Quick Prep.

I can't see like I used to. Sorry.

That is a pretty good price. They range from around that price on up to around $60 or more. Some come with other things. Mine came with a whisk attachment and a little container for making dressing I think. I never use the container, but I do use the whisk.

You only need the one blade. They last forever. If you ever needed a new one you would probably just buy a whole new unit.

Cool, the whisk attachment would be nice to have, too!

Last questions, for now LOL, if I got this would I even need my hand mixer anymore? I barely use it as it is and would like the space for the immersion blender...
