    RIP Stick Blender

    Shop Now
    I'm so sad, I just blew out the motor in my stick blender. Now here is the question, should I replace it? I use it 99.9% of the time to make Franken-primal goodies (I broke it making brownies using mostly almond butter...) So maybe I shouldn't replace it and I will live more of a primal/paleo lifestyle by default? What's your take?

    I use mine to mash cauliflower, blend coconut milk shakes, make cream of (veggie xyz) soup. It has lots of primal uses too.

    Go without it for 2 weeks and see if you miss it?

    Yeah, I had forgotten about the mashed cauliflower and soup when I posted originally. I guess I'll need to replace it then.

    Replace it. I use it to scramble eggs, puree soups - broccoli, cauliflower, tomato-basil, pureed celery root.

    i've never had one, so easy to live without.

    i, honestly, own no other kitchen appliances than these: oven/stove and fridge/freezer. everything else is manually operated.

    I love mine. Had the original one for about 15 yeas before I started to use it . Now - it is used most days. Soup mainly - how I love root veg soup pureed with the stick blender.

    Anyone used it for mayo? Does it work with just yolks - the instruction book says whole egg and in my book that ain't real mayo!

    I love my stick blender! I use mine for mayo, but I don't recall if I used just yolks or the entire egg. I do know it worked amazing for it though.
