If it didn't come with one, find a container that is just as wide as the base, but tall for mixing. They're great for single serving smoothies, and fast blending of sauces and dressing.
Oh it has a whole suite of gizmos with it. Additional blades, blender cup, processor cup, whisk, etc.
Caught on to your MO has she?4766
For my birthday, the wife bought me our first immersion blender. She swears I said I wanted one. Funny, I remember her saying she wanted one. Well, it was a nice gesture all the same and I'm sure I'll put it to use.
Anyway, the first thing I do is flip the thing over and silently grimace that the blades aren't detachable so sharpening them is next to impossible.
I think there's something wrong with me...

4782 Come to think of it, I think even when brand new the Bamix blades weren't particularly sharp. I'm not even sure it's a requirement for the blades to be sharp at all; maybe it works more in brute force.4,780
We've had the same Braun immersion blender for more than ten years. It's still hanging in there, and I've never felt a need to sharpen the blades.

A month and a half ago, I turned in a vacation request form for October 2, 3 and 4. Company policy is to approve or deny 2 weeks ahead of time.
This past Monday, my boss asks me if I want to have 2 of the days as regular days off, and the 3rd one use vacation time. I said yes.
Come in today, after being off the past 2 days. Schedule says 2 days off.
Talk to my boss. Get crap about:
1. He forgot.
2. He went ahead and scheduled me to train someone on Wednesday.
3. He didn't realize I wanted 3 days.
4. Request form is conveniently missing now.
5. I need to fix his mistake.
6. And the kicker! "What do you want me to do about it?"
I have to confess I too wondered about sharpening that product crusher blade (we have a kitchenaid stick) but did not get around to check if/how the blade comes out.4785
The blade they ship is probably engineered to be exactly as sharp, or dull, as what it would be anyway after 5 minutes of blending ice… so users don’t get chips in their teeth.
Prepping for my first backpacking trip out in the western US, and first in bear country.
And news comes out about experienced backpackers in Canada getting eaten by a bear.
Also RIP, that has to be one of the worst and most terrifying ways to go in North America outside of being kidnapped by someone with ill intent or via aneurysms. Backcountry is still a movie that scars me.
Yeah that’d make me **** enough bricks to lay a house. I know ticks and mice are more likely to mess up a trip, but at least they aren’t taller than me…4797
I have never felt smaller then being confronted by a brown bear sow on her hind legs looking at me about 30 yards away in some thick Alaskan brush. She dropped down and stomped and snapped and I figured we were in serious trouble. The pistol on my hip suddenly felt like a cap gun. Luckily she turned and crashed off through the bush.
The moose were actually more dangerous and I had my share of encounters with them too but that bear... Woosh...
