I love to cook for my family and many of my girlfriends actually brag about the best immersion blender they have ever bought.
I of course being doubting Thomas had to go out on the web and search for myself and figure out what truly is the blender to buy.
Cuisinart was obviously one of the leaders int the industry. So Cuisinart CSB-77 Hand Blender comes with Chopper Attachments and really works great for cutting up strawberries or blueberries for morning meals and even shakes. I have to admit I do take this to work so I can go in the cafe and use it to break down frozen fruit I bring in for my protein shakes. It looks stupid but man does it work awesome!
Now the Another blender called the DeLonghi Hand Blender can also crush frozen fruits and vegetables. I have not used it but it is worth looking into if you think you would like it or have any friends that recommend it.
Anyways, this is a short write up that I have been using the Immerson Blender to do some cooking. As anything do your research and buy what makes sense for you. I was lazy and just bought it to help me out.
