Some readers might remember that my Hamilton Beach immersion blender died a noble death this past winter. (O’ faithful kitchen tool of several years, you are very much missed.)
Thanks to a sale and a family member who works at a department store, Hamilton Beach was quickly replaced by a happy looking orange Cuisinart immersion blender.
It’s taller than the Hamilton Beach. It’s more top heavy. It’s faster.
Faster, I’m realizing, is not better.
The blades on the Hamilton Beach are more angular. I don’t think they are sharper though. I guess they are technically longer since the center of the blades is smaller. The vents, if I may call them that, around the blade are more effective. I seldom had to stop blending and check to see if anything had gotten caught.
