Think soup is only for the winter? Think again! This summer, whip up cold soups, gazpachos and easy appetizers with a KRUPS GPA 1 Immersion Blender. Why miss out on the party while slaving away in the kitchen, when delicious and easy recipes are at hand?

The GPA 1 Immersion blender ($79.99) is a powerful hand blender that chops, purees and mixes most foods. It is made with a stainless steel shaft that is easily removed with a click for easy storage. It has six variable speeds and comes with a measure beater and wall mount. This appliance also has a LCD display on the soft grip ergonomic handle that shows the selected speed.

From cold soups to dips and sauces, this appliance is a handy tool to add to your kitchen arsenal for those quick and delectable bites. Below are a few recipes to make with the immersion blender, courtesy of KRUPS.

1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
