We’re just days away from Christmas (how has this happened?) and I’m excited that I get to be Santa’s little helper today. First, I want to tell you about one of my new favorite kitchen appliances – the Cuisinart Smart Stick PowerTrio Hand Blender . Cuisinart provided me with this handy kitchen tool so I could give it a whirl (get it?) in my kitchen and has generously offered to provide another for me to give away to one of you!
I’ve been blending, processing, and whipping all sorts of things and now you’ll have the opportunity to do the same.
I’ve mentioned many a time how helpful it is to have an immersion blender in your kitchen tool collection. I’ve had a Cuisinart Smart Stick Immersion Blender for years and it’s seen a lot of action in my soup pots. This PowerTrio High Torque Hand Blender is a super charged version of this tool that includes the immersion blender and a whole lot more. It comes with a 4-cup capacity food processor bowl that works with a chopping blade and shredding disc. It also comes with a whisk attachment for whipping cream and egg whites and a 2-cup blending cup for blending smoothies and shakes.
Pop the motor body on top of the food processor bowl and you have yourself a mini food processor. Such a nice option for smaller jobs when I don’t feel like lugging my large Cuisinart 9-Cup Food Processor out of the cupboard. It’s the perfect size for salad dressing, hummus, or a fresh batch of pesto. One thing I noticed right away was the sturdiness of it. The motor body snaps in to place securely and easily. It’s easy to figure out and fun to use.
Liquid can be added through the open feed tube, just like with a larger food processor. I’m adding olive oil while the unit is running so it will emulsify into a wonderfully creamy salad dressing

An immersion blender makes the task of pureeing soups clean and easy. No need to transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender, just place the immersion blender directly into the soup pot and blend away. Here are a few of my recipes where I find this tool indispensable.
