I had one of those kitchen revelations not too long ago that changed the way I cook. And as a result I will likely never use a standard blender ever again.
Now, I realize that one woman's kitchen revelation is another woman's duh moment. So if you've been doing this trick for years, hats off to you (and why didn't you tell me about this sooner?). If you're like me and had never thought of this, well then, welcome to the club. Here's why I'm ditching the blender, and what I'll be using instead.
