Immersion blender

Can an immersion (stick) blender be used to whip cream? It just seems like less to assemble and clean than a mixer. Thanks

    I use one of those lightweight coffee "frothers" for whipping small amounts of whipping cream. You could probably use an immersion blender, but just do it at a low speed. Of course, do it in a container with high sides!

      I've done it in desperation once, but I won't again if I can help it. Too messy and inconsistent.

        I've had great luck whipping small amounts of cream in the beaker that came with the stick blender, using the main blender attachment. I use a sprinkle of sugar, and it whips VERY fast (only a few seconds). I would not try to do it in a bowl unless your blender has a whisk attachment (mine does - that also works, but is fundamentally no different from other kinds of hand mixers).
