I am looking to purchase a hand held, single stemmed mixer, which really can be used to make soups and to whip cream.
Does anyone have a recommendation for both purposes?  I have a Kenwood stand mixer, it’s too heavy to transport, and
an old fashioned Cuisinart (purchased in 1978).  It too is too large to take with me to be able to serve freshly whipped
with a dessert to potluck dinners.  Thanks for any replies. -Diane

Hi

The immersion blender I like the best is by Bamix. It works on an array of items, and I use it more than I ever thought I would. It does not have the annoying shield that many of the other ones have. It is well worth the money.

For taking whip cream to an event, you might consider using a whip cream stabilizer.

Hi

I use what Bamix calls the “beater blade”. It looks similar to a blender blade.

I second the ISI whipped cream maker that uses the little gas bombs - I have two ISI - I will tell you that I have found that here in Calgary Canada it takes 3 of those gas bombs to make good whipped cream from a pint 500 ml carton.  I too keep whipped cream at the ready for Saturday morning crepes etc.  the cream stays fresh a long time - you can also whip up an 8 ounce size 250ml if you wont get through a pint at home.  I have also added chocolate syrup for chocolate whipped cream - in my second ISI - waste of good cream - we never used it after the first trial but it is great on spanish coffee mochachino etc.
