Top 5 Hand Blenders for Kitchen (in India)
by| Last Updated
Hand mixers or immersion blenders help in mixing or blending your ingredients to the right mix without much hassle.
The most useful feature of these blenders is that they do not require any kind of special container for operation.
And with the characteristic feature of having a long stem, you can pass it even through tight necked vessels.
The basic construction of a hand blender consists of an electric motor which drives stainless steel or plastic blades at high RPMs, which you can immerse to do the blend operation.
The long stem which leads to the comfortable grips lets you hold the mixer with ease during its operation.
They come in both battery powered as well as supply wall powered for usage. But battery powered ones are usually underpowered.
Since hand mixers are used for basic operations of whisking (egg whites, milk) or blending (mixing ingredients together uniformly, example – making a smoothie); this should not be used for other heavy tasks such a dough kneading. Such operations can stall the motor can cause permanent damage.
Let’s look at the operations that an elementary hand mixer should be able to carry out without a sweat.
