It’s easy to clean, simply load into the dishwasher or use hot soapy water and I leave it out on the counter so it’s convenient to use.
The only other item you might need in the kitchen is an immersion blender which I love for pureeing soups or whisking a quick batch of whipped cream. Make sure when you buy one to get the attachments. It comes with a whisk, a puree and a mini chopper attachment. Easy to clean with hot soapy water and can be stowed away in a drawer for easy access.
