"A blender plus"
08 March 2008
This is more than a blender. The mincer attachment is really a small food processor and is very useful for chopping up, for example, a single garlic clove or blending together parsley and butter. You need to use a deep receptacle when using this device as it can throw the liquid or solid being processed out of a shallow one-use the slower speed. It's also great for finishing off a soup to get it really smooth. The other attachment that I use frequently is the little grinder bowl. It far better than most food processors in grinding nuts finely without them becoming oily. It's a boon for breaking down lumps in icing sugar to a fine powder. You don't need to wash it-just use a pastry brush to clean it out. My only criticism of the device is that the wand part cannot be removed for washing. I half fill a jug with soapy water and whiz it and then rinse with hot water.
