Sent by AudreyEditor: For making super-smooth soups, smoothies, and sauces, I've found that I actually prefer the immersion blender over the food processor. The immersion blender can handle most frozen fruits, though I've found it does best if larger fruits (like whole frozen strawberries) can be chopped into smaller bits.
Here's some more info about both appliances:

Readers, what do you recommend?
