Immersion blenders only work for cool foods?
I ordered a Braun Multi-mix 880 hand blender online. It's a little different than the usual stick blender -- it looks more like a hand blender with a stick attachment. It got good reviews on a few different sites, so I took a chance.
But I was just reading the instructions, and I see that it says NOT to use it as an immersion heater in anything hot. You should let your pot of hot foods cool first, then blend, then reheat. If you use the immersion blender in hot liquids, you run the danger of overheating the blender.
The whole reason I bought an immersion blender was to use in hot soups! Is this one different than the ones everyone else has, or do you all just ignore your directions?
