I had been searching for immersion blenders and hand mixers for a while and when the Masha arrived at my door there were so many uses I had in mind for it. From whipping up cake batter ingredients, mashing potatoes for the holidays, to making savoury dips, this all in one device is the kitchen cupboard space saver of my dreams.
Out of the box, the Masha makes a positive first impression when it reveals its extended cord and compact electric socket head. No fuss to be had with batteries here! It includes two function-specific blades to tailor to whatever recipe creation you’re dreaming up.
The rotor blade was great for whipping together my Roasted Red Pepper Feta Dip recipe. It has enough power to pulse through the softened but solid peppers yet was gentle enough to keep some good feta chunks that really make the recipe a special accompaniment to any veggie or cracker.
I also tried the aerator blade while making my Double Layer Chocolate-Pumpkin-Spice-Latte cake. It worked great with the wet ingredients and easily whisked eggs into milk and oil with just a couple of seconds of pressing the automatic button. The Masha was also able to incorporate a cake batter’s wet ingredients into the dry ingredients of flour, sugar and spices. Although it took slightly longer than a standard hand mixer to fully combine the wet and dry ingredients, it did so more thoroughly and the edge of the rotor-cone is perfectly designed for pulling any batter down from the sides of the mixing bowl. The removable rotor-cone and blade feature creates less mess while mixing is in progress, and it is also incredibly easy to clean. The release button is conveniently accessed in the middle of the wand and both the cone and blade are dishwasher safe so you can leave the washing up to the appliances.
In future generations of the Masha, it would be great to see an adjustable speed function and finer strain holes on the rotor-cone to achieve an additional level of smoothness for mixes with a thinner consistency. Overall, the Masha is a perfect all in one device for mixing and mashing both sweet and savoury dishes.
