Bamix Handheld Blender

Gordon Ramsay has put his name to a new Bamix model and I have to say this looks very sophisticated compared to my old white one. However, it still does the same job as mine and so I will get down to the nitty gritty of describing how this works.
Compared to most other handheld blenders it is very powerful and works at approx. 15,000 r.p.m.
It comes with a mincer blade which makes light work of making batters, it will chop, mince and puree, and is also great for blending soups and sauces.
The beater - aerates cream and will whip up soup.
The whisk - stirs and mixes shakes, drinks and purees.
The processor - grinds coffee beans, chops nuts, makes castor sugar and grates Parmesan cheese.
My model also came complete with a jug.
The Bamix is very powerful and so take a word from the wise - make sure you keep the blender head immersed at all times whilst it is whizzing around or you will decorate yourself, and the whole kitchen, but thats another story!!
