Default Any chefs in the house?

New to cooking, but it's quickly grabbed my interest.

Thinking about picking up a handheld blender. Are they worth it?
Any suggestions?

It don't know if it matters. I have a vitamix and separate, albeit cheap, food processor. Don't need another. Since i know some of the handheld blenders come with attachments and you can connect them to a food processor and what not.

An immersion blender?

For sauces, mashed potatoes, soup, etc.. Can stick it directly into the cooking pot and let it do it's job.

Pretty sure it's cooking related.

What happened to old school cooking where you made mashed potatoes by actually mashing the potatoes.

I never made soup in a blender.

this is true. Also, a handheld blender is a great tool. Useful for soups, sauces, batters, hell we even used to make soap with one. You gotta use it properly (dont push it too hard or with really big or hard chunks) and I would suggest a decent one.

Personally, my favorite two kitchen devices have been a slap and chop (pampered chef type), since it made mincing ridiculously easy and a bullet style blender (again ease of use for making everything from omelets to shakes).

What do you like to cook?

That's not one of the first things you'd want to pick up.

Start with a 12" fry pan or 2-3 qt saucier and an 8" chef knife.

This one time, he was making love to a lady so vigorously that he broke the bed frame.

I use my immersion blender all the time for purees and soups.... also the one I bought (maybe a CuisinArt??) has multiple attachments for other uses like a whisk/eggbeater and an attachable large container with a blade that basically makes it into a standard food processor.

Also like Booze said, don't use it for mashed potatoes.... they'll turn out gummy.
