As we approach the Passover holiday and plan our seder menu, it’s a good idea to take an inventory of your kitchen equipment.  Do you have everything you need for Passover?  If you don’t have a hand blender, you’re probably working too hard.  I recently tested the KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender and this dynamo is like having my very own sous chef in a box.

The powerful 5-speed motor and 8 inch removable blending arm provide exceptional control to mix all your ingredients with ease.  You can blend, puree, chop, shred, mince, froth/mix, and whisk/emulsify and aerate.  From breakfast smoothies, chopped nuts for charoset, dicing bitter herbs for maror, shredding vegetables for salad and stir fry, or whisking egg whites for meringues or macaroons  – you can do everything you used to do by hand in a fraction of the time with the KitchenAid blender.  So instead of buying a food processor, a blender and a mixer you can do it all with just this hand blender.

With the removable bending arm (always wished I had one of those) you can work with deep bowls, pots (including those industrial size soup pots that can feed the army of guests you have coming for seder), or pitchers of most any size.  It also comes with a 1-liter, BPA free pitcher with a no-splash lid so yo don’t need multiple measuring cups or mixing bowls.  The five foot power cord can navigate a large kitchen with ease.  A removable pan guard will prevent scratching on expensive cookware.  All the equipment is dishwasher safe or will clean up easily with soap and water.  The other feature I really liked was the storage case, it’s sleek and stylish, but most importantly, it keeps all your equipment organized in one place and all for under $100.

Here are a few recipes I have tried with my KitchenAid 5-Speed Hand Blender, what would you make if you had one?
