(semi-OT) Blender in Little Paris Kitchen

Posted by writersblock (My Page) on

I really enjoyed watching The Little Paris Kitchen episodes that were linked in the Bigger Kitchens thread, but one thing I'm terribly curious about--does anyone know what that monster stick blender is that she uses, and if there's anything like that available in the US?

I have the Kitchen-Aid version, and it for sure would short out and die if I tried to blend a raw chicken breast in the food processor attachment, the way she does with hers.

Oh, and thanks very much, bmorepanic, for posting the link. For those who missed it, here it is again, although the mighty blender doesn't really show its stuff until the second or third episode.

Hmmm. Could be a commercial product here in the states. I have a pretty big one, thanks to DH who works in the restaurant supply business. I watched two epis of that charming woman cooking in her adorable kitchen but didn't see the stick. Can you point to a specific epi?

I somehow missed this show on that other thread as I've been busy lately. Thanks for the intro. I can't wait to find the time to watch the remaining epis!

Robot Coupe makes a variable speed stick blender for a mere $651.49 (but with free shipping, LOL), link below.

And Waring makes a cheapie available at Amazon for only $319.95: the Waring Immersion Blender, Heavy Duty.

I believe hers is the Elux French model, available in the US as a Frigidaire.

Thanks, jkom51 and jscout. None of those look exactly like it, but they all can evidently do at least some of what it does.

It is an Electrolux. From an interview with her:

I do admire your super blender, can you tell me what make it is please?

My 'super blender' is from Electrolux. I have in the past had a Braun handblender to.

Thanks, dekeoboe. I guess they have a different model for Europe, or maybe it's an older one. Very interesting article--I was wondering about how she was able to run a restaurant in her apartment.

Here you go.

Thanks, jscout. I had actually found that from your first reference. Perhaps it's a newer model--it does claim to do all the things she was doing (but not unless you chop the meat first), but it's not so chunky. Better looking anyway.

Does anyone here happen to have the frigidaire? My kitchenaid also claims to do a lot of that stuff, but it doesn't, not readily.

The difference is probably partly due to 120v vs 240v. The US model is 200 watts. There are several French models and they get as high as 700 watts. Yeah, I had considered installing a 220 EU style outlet in my kitchen so we could use some of the great European gadgets. Our European electric kettles boiled water much faster and I got spoiled.

Thanks, dekeoboe. I somehow missed your post before. That would explain it.

Wish I thought to put a 240 in the kitchen. DM brought back an early panini press from Ireland and DD added the outlet. Fond memories of DD. For now, only memories.
