So, I got an immersion blender as a gift. I went to use it and the suction was insane! As soon as I turned it on, it stuck to the bottom of the pot. I literally press the on button and whoosh! sticks to the bottom of the pot. If I try lifting it up with the motor still running hot soup flies everywhere.
I had imagined that I'd be able to move it around the pot (to cream a soup, etc.) but it simply doesn't work that way.
What am I doing wrong?? I feel like an idiot, and I do know my way around a kitchen so I am flummoxed.
