Hi :)

Before I go nuts looking at god-knows-how-many-available-internet-recipes.... do I need an immersion blender to properly make ketchup? The end goal is a smooth texture, as a base for BBQ sauce.

Thanks in advance.

Immersion blender is really nice for making catsup or bbq sauce... but a regular jar blender works too. Food processor will not get smooth enough.

I’ve only had two in my entire life. The first was a cheap one and it lasted nearly forever. Finally the bearing gave out. Now I have a 2-speed Waring Commercial. Not sure how old it is because I bought it used about 3 years ago. I much prefer having fast and slow rather than just fast.
