CAN AN IMMERSION BLENDER SUBSTITUTE FOR A FOOD PROCESSOR?
Like a blender, an immersion, or hand blender, can be a solid food processor alternative for a handful of prep tasks, in particular the ones that liquefy ingredients like pureeing, emulsifying and blending. This compact tool is designed to blend right in the pot, pan or bowl you’re using for prep and features a small spinning blade to process ingredients.
As is true of a standard blender, a hand blender won’t knead, slice or shred ingredients. You can expand the versatility of some hand blenders by adding attachments. The KitchenAid® Cordless Variable Speed Hand Blender with Chopper and Whisk Attachment comes with a whisk attachment to quickly whip egg whites to fluffy peaks and cream, or emulsify vinaigrettes and mayonnaise. The 2.5 cup BPA-Free1 chopper attachment chops herbs, nuts, cheeses and more.
