Excerpt: I love these hand blenders, I've used them for many years. In the past I've always picked up one at a yard sale for a couple bucks and then use until it breaks. This is the first new one I've purchased and after several weeks of use it has done well. I hope it lasts because I like it. The quality seems quite good, like it should last, so we'll see.
Pros: good power, makes quick work of most tasks easy clean up well designed to minimize "up-splash" and keep everything in the cup comes with a nice blender cup with measuring marks etc color options are nice and allow it to match other items in our kitchen great value for the money
Cons: a bit slow to grind up ice cubes, but still gets it done and for a blender of this type it does great job I found the power cord to be a bit long
