In soap making whether you are making hot process or cold process at some point you will need to use a stick blender to marry your ingredients together.
Choosing a good immersion blender is quite a task as there are many out on the market.

To break it down, your blender should consist of a few features that makes its use easy. Knowing the parts of the blender helps and knowing which parts ans where they are will help you choose.
- Power Button

The location of each of these parts will make a difference, especially when you are mixing soft oils as they tend to take a while to reach trace.
Ultimately you want a blender that feels good in the hand, the buttons are easy to reach with your thumb or forefinger and having additional attachments make it all the better.
