    Immersion Blender Question

    I'm looking to purchase an immersion blender so I'm looking for recommendations. I would like to buy one that will last a long time, has sufficient power for thick soups, mayonnaise, etc., but also does the basic things well, such as whipping cream, pureeing sauce, etc.

    Kitchenaid makes one that's generally well regarded. However, I'm open to purchasing a commercial immersion blender. I would really like to hear from the chefs out there.

    Thanks.

    P.S. - If you could also tell me what you make with your immersion blender, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I use this one to make cream sauces, dressings and purees. fairly inexpensive and most restaurant supplies carry them. You should also be able to get them online.

    I just used mine to mutilate some tomatillos for chili verde. Very handy, the food processor is blocked in the cabinet by the puppy pen!

    Dynamic mixers are great.

    +1. I've been using them for years, both at work and home. The 'mini' is the smallest & perfectly fine for home use.
    Pros: Heavy duty & lasts forever. Very long power cord.
    Cons: It's expensive and has one speed.

    I have a couple dynamics at work, the large and small ones. The small one I have has a variable speed dial. The mini pro I believe. Can be had for under $200 easy. There are others with detachable blades as well I believe.

    Guys:

    Thanks for recommending the Dynamic mixer. I had never heard of it, but I think it's what I've been looking for.

    Let me know what you think of it, once you've tried it a few times.

    They are also relatively easy to maintain and fix if something goes wrong. There's really only a couple of main culprits when things go awry. Motor bushings and bearings mainly.
