It was first introduced to me by my mother-in-law who lived in New Orleans. Forget that they tell you it’s only for making roux. When cooking on the stove I use it all the time, and it has become my favorite. Need to scrape the brown bits off the bottom (or sides) of this pan? No problem.
Hand Immersion Blender: $35
This is absolutely the most ridiculously smart and handy appliance I own. I love to create homemade soups, and before I had one of them (also given to me by my in-laws!) , I was wasting time and also making a massive mess when pureeing soups.You see, I was transferring my soups (in batches, no less) into the counter top blender, and when your pot is still holding the chunky soup and the blender is stuffed to the max with pureed soup, where-oh-where would you put it so that you can continue pureeing the remaining soup?? Once more, HUGE mess. Not to mention a friend once told me the heat of the soup she puree forced the lid to fly her counter top blender off, and she was burned by it. So please do yourself a big favor and invest in one of those bad boys, and when you are at it, get one for each cook (or aspiring cook) you know!
