Stand mixers and Food Processors have powerful motors and generally have a stainless steel bowl that is locked in place while the mixer is operating.
Hand Blenders or Hand Mixers can also quickly whip, blend, mix, chop and puree directly in your glass, bowl or cooking pan. In addition to the blending wand, most hand blenders and mixers come with a stainless steel whisk for convenience. These Hand Blenders and Mixers are very easy to use and clean.
