I used to use a stick blender - a Bamix for about 30 years however the last one stopped working, and for the money I will not buy it again as they used to last for 20 years!
My blender also blew up (smoked), so i bought myself a fancy food processor (Kenwood) which does everything and it is so easy compared to a blender.

So NO I no longer use a stick blender.
by Finy
Kenwood mixers have ALWAYS been brilliant!! My parents still have the one we had when I was a little girl, and that is well over 45 years old now!!!
by Jules
not so much nowadays -nothing apart from Miele is made to last years!

I agree totally!! So disappointing on various levels. I know when I needed to finally get a new fridge after Cyclone Yasi tore through this region, I was in for a major exercise in researching the ones which I might be happy with And as for my air conditioner which I finally replaced after 16 years?!!! The new ones have computerised panels for the remote control function, and mine was faulty! They ended up replacing the darn part THREE times before we got one which was in perfect working order!!! What a joke!! I tend to take very good care of items I purchase, as most of us with common sense do, and I have my stainless steel Sunbeam frypan and skillet which I would NEVER part with, or replace with non-stick ones!!! They are just the most wonderful pieces to cook with!! I have found that these older style stainless steel ones are getting very hard to find anymore, which is rather sad. They always look just like new when they have been washed, and the cook as though they are brand new too!!!!

This is the model we have. It is much better than the regular blender. My wife uses it for everything , especially for shakes in the money. The only thing that could too this would be a vitamix
Sorry dwalk, but what does..'shakes in the money' mean? I must have missed something there.
by Miro
Moro- I think maybe - shakes in the morning

Spell check got me too- Miro. Sorry.
by annfi
They are rather wonderful.

I have one, but forget at times I have one?*#!?
Hence it's left to the back of the drawer.

Go figure.
I do and my Braun of thirty plus years just died recently and I was really sad. (how silly is that!) Anyway, I was in our really big Lifeline Superstore and I got a Sunbeam one, brand new in the box, for $8. Bargain!!!
by Rice
Brilliant ! I love a bargain :)
Well Done You!!!! I adore when I find real bargains like this, and I love to hear that others also find them!!!!
by Jules
You lucky girl, Rice. I hope this 1 also last 30 + years!
by Miro
Thanks miro_ :-))
by Rice
We have one that came with our food processor. They are wonderful things, and I wouldn't be without it. It saves having to get the entire food processor out, and all the washing up and mess involved in cleaning that. We use it to blend up my home made soups and smoothies.
You know I had never thought about whipping cream with it !! .. it only came with a blade... not a whisk attachment .. would it still work do you think?
Give it a try🙂
by Lluxi
I have a stick blender. Perfect for soup, but other than that I don't use it.. seems to be a very limited use appliance.
(Funny how we feel so terribly clever when we get a bargain. LOL)
by Rice
It's only limited by your imagination. I whip cream, make dips, and make desserts, to name just a few things
by Lluxi
I don't use mine often as the blender seems to do a better job. However, I prefer to whip cream with it.
These are such super utensils for people like me who suffeer with major joint issues!!! EASY TO USE, AND EASY TO CLEAN!!!!
Lurvin' the easy clean factor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Rice
I have a stick blender but I don't use it as the normal blender is quicker and faster. I should really find the time to spring clean and donate the stick blender and other things I don't use anymore.
Yes - I use it for soups
by AJ
No I don't use a stick blender in the kitchen. I just use a few different size whisks. I do have 1 on a shelve in the laundry next to the kitchen, but I don't think it works, as it may have a missing part to it. (I'll have to check it out again.)

I made all my own baby food for my two children and I always used the stick blender for it. It was great because you could do small or large quantities and it was so easy to clean up.
One of my babies was very sensitive to noise and would scream with the normal blender but had no issues with me using the stick blender.
I rarely use it now though
Not anymore...Actually, I lie. But I only use it when I am making pumpkin soup, which I haven't done in over a year!
by Vee
Yes I have one and use it mainly for soups, but used it recently to blend some raw rolled oats for a cosmetic face mask. I love how easy it is to access and clean. It can stand in the front of one of my deep drawers so it is at the ready.
I've only just seen your reply to Dwatk's reply, Annfi. Good guess. I'm 44 AA's behind with my replies, as I've been away on holidays for a month, & as my husband doesn't like me wasting my time on AA's, I can only answer them when he's not around. (By the way he spells his name, like I've typed it, not with the 'l'. I always think it should be with a 'l' not a 'k'!!! And lastly, I've NEVER seen a reply from him to anyone, if that makes sense!
