How To Blend Hot Soups
The Easiest Way to Purée
A handheld immersion blender is the easiest (and often safest) way to purée hot soups on the stove, and is often a low-cost investment for any kitchen. Just be sure to keep the head of the blender immersed in the hot liquid when blending. You'll save a lot of extra mess by not having to transfer the soup to a blender and then retransferring it back to the pot as well.
