Question

What is this kitchen appliance called?

Hi, I'm trying to translate a French recipe into English. The recipe requires the use of a "mixeur plongeant". I know what one looks like and is used for, but I don't know what it's called in English, and none of my dictionaries or other sources seem to have a good answer.

The "mixeur plongeant" is a sort of hand mixer whose metal thing you put into the bottom of a liquid mixture in order to emulsify it. If you need an image, please google this name in French, or you can go to this link :http://www.google.fr/imgres?imgurl=http:…

Does anyone know what this is called in English?

Thanks/Merci!
