The curated kitchen: slim immersion blenders

Get this. With an immersion blender such as the control grip from Breville or the BISTRO electric blender stick from Bodum, you can quickly purée soups and fruits and vegetables, giving you a smooth vichyssoise, say, or a delicate applesauce, by simply placing the blender in the pot and blending. Try doing that with a countertop blender. Indeed!
