When it comes to cooking, I’m a bit of a nut for having the newest and best appliances to create the perfect culinary creations. Whether it’s a small accessory like a milk frother or something bigger like a waffle maker, great food is easy with great tools on hand. And that’s why I couldn’t wait to test out the new Braun PureMix Blender! With the ability to pulse, blend and liquefy both cold and hot ingredients and bonus Smoothie2Go cups for busy mornings, it sounded like the perfect addition to my kitchen arsenal.
One of my favourite features on this sleek blender is its Crush Ice setting. Margaritas and other crushed ice beverages are a favourite in our house, but properly crushing ice for those beverages is something I’ve never been able to figure out. The Braun PureMix Blender uses a pulsing cycle to ensure ice is properly and evenly crushed, minus the large chunks and melted cubes I’ve sometimes encountered in the past. I tested it with a handful of ice cubes and in less than a minute, I had crushed ice worthy of a fancy restaurant cocktail!
