The Best Immersion Blender for Beans

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix immersion blender is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my immersion blender for recipes like soup, as it’s much easier to manage than transferring all the ingredients to a stand blender. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a weekly basis!
