Use an Immersion Blender for Soups and Sauces

Kitchen Tips:

If you had to choose a super-helpful small appliance, this is one of the best. Use it to coarsely chop, blend and purée items like produce, soups, and sauces—in the same pan you are cooking them in! The convenience and speed of not having to transfer hot soups and sauces to a regular blender or food processor makes this a huge time saver in the kitchen. Plus, it is relatively small so it is easier to store than its bigger counterparts.
