I have an immersion stick blender that I use occasionally. Mostly for making creamed soups, but occasionally for whipping something or for a sauce that needs a little blending.

But everytime I use it it seems to throw out splatters all over the place. I've tried using it in the pot, putting the stuff I'm blending into a bowl, etc. etc.

What am I doing wrong?

Sounds like you got one without a shield over the blades. Guess you could use plastic wrap over a bowl, cut a big hole and place the blender in to reduce splatter.

No, there's a shield. The plastic wrap would work, but that's not the point. It seems to me that I must be doing something wrong in my technique.

Many immersion blenders come with a tall, thin container to use them in. This is the ideal way to use them, because you can move the head up and down, in and out of the food being blended, to incorporate as much air as you wish... lots for whipped cream, for example.

To use them in an open pot or pan, keep the entire head submerged at all times, because lifting it out of the liquid will sling it around in the air.

Good luck!
