You can blend soups and sauces directly in the pot.
This immersion blender has a lot of great features that make it our top pick. Unlike other models that create a vortex that pulls food into the blades and suction themselves to the bottom of the container, the Breville’s blade guard is uniquely shaped to prevent this. It requires more up-and-down motion to blend uniformly, but we still found it easy to operate. The rubber handle is soft, narrow, and comfortable to grip and the “on” button is easy to hold down.
The blender attachment clips on and off with ease and it never feels loose when clipped on. It features 15 speed settings for different foods and it came with the largest lidded mixing jar we tested (42 ounces!). Its lid doubles as an anti-slip mat to place under the jar. This model also includes a food processor and whisk attachment and all attachments are dishwasher safe.
