Stick blenders (also known as combi mixers), are useful handheld kitchen tools with a detachable, interchangeable blade and whisk, ideal for blending or whisking small quantities of food or liquid.
Manufactured by world leaders Robot Coupe, as well as Electrolux and Waring, they are used for liquidising, to puree and mash fruits and vegetables, make smoothies, cocktails, soups, sauces and salad dressings.
They can be used to blend ingredients in a cup or beaker, or alternatively directly into a saucepan. For busy bars, hotels, restaurants, kitchens and canteens this is one piece of catering equipment you cannot be without.
Fully immerse the blade in the mixture before turning on to avoid spatters.
