I have always wanted to get an immersion blender, as it will be so much easier to use one to blend my soups. I'm really happy with this set, as it also comes with additional attachments as well.
This blender comes with stainless steel QuattroBlade blender foot, XL chopper, stainless steel whisk, mixing beaker with lid and measuring beaker with lid. The hand blender is powerful with a 750 watts power and comes with 12 speed settings. The appliance is now retailing at a promotional price of S$109 (usual price S$159) until 5th Jan 2014, at leading electrical and departmental outlets island-wide.
The blender is ergonomically shaped and features a soft touch handle, so it fits well in our hands and is comfortable to hold. As seen in the picture above, the blender comes with large buttons for easy operation. There is also a turbo button for maximum power too.
This stainless steel blender foot is not only convenient to use, it does an impressive job in blending soup, smoothies, sauces, puree, etc.
I tried out the mixing wand to blend soup and smoothies, it does the job really well and fast. I used the universal cutter to minced chicken and it does the job effortlessly too. The universal cutter is also good for blending nuts, hard cheese, garlic, onions, herbs, etc in small quantities. I like the non slip container it comes with, so the container won't shift during the mixing process.
Lastly, I tried out the balloon whisk to whisk whipped cream and I must say it does the job as well as my standing mixer. I no longer need to bring out my bulky standing mixer just to whip up some cream. :)
Overall, the Bosch MSM67160 ErgoMixx Hand Blender is a breeze to use, it was easy changing the attachments and washing up was fast. I am impressed with the blender, it is a handy kitchen gadget to own and works really well. I will definitely recommend one if you are thinking of getting a hand blender.

With the help of my Bosch blender, I prepared some guacamole and served it on top of toasted cheese bread.
This is a mild guacamole recipe which is suitable for toddlers too.
If you want to make the toast more appealing to children, how about turning them into cute froggies?
All you need are bananas and blueberries for the eyes and strawberries for the cheeks. You can cut out nori for the mouth, or draw the mouth with nutella or chocolate sauce. :)
