  3. In what sort of appliance are you cooking this sauce? I am unfamiliar with a mixer that heats as well. :-)

  5. I'm using for almost every recipe the Thermomix TM31. This multifunctional kitchen gadget is not only a blender and food processor. It is the world's smartest kitchen with a controlling heating element. Able to chop, cook,uncook, crush, emulsify, filter, grind, homogenize, knead, melt, mince, mix, program, pulverise, simmer, steam, warm and weigh. The bowl is stainless steel and the blades are made of Solingen steel. The machine is designed and manufactured by Vorwerk/Germany.
    The Thermomix is currently not available in the US - but can be ordered from Thermomix Canada.
    If you need more info, feel free to contact me :-)
