Summary: I love this product. It took me 6 years to burn out the motor on the old one (I used it to make a bunch of smoothies, and got a bit overzealous with the still-frozen raspberries). I expect this one will last just as long if not longer. I use this at least once a week. It is the perfect way to make hollandaise. I don't even own a blender. I make salsa, etc with this. This also breaks down to three smaller units which are easy to store in my tiny kitchen.
Great blender BUT the battery pack no longer holds a charge!!!

Summary: FIrst of all I want to say that I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this stick blender. It came with lots of attachments, I even bought an extra bowl & blade because I used it for so many things. But...... the rechargeable batter stopped holding a charge after several months and now I have to keep it plugged in all the time and it lasts about 30 seconds. THe worst part is that Cuisinart doesn't sell the replacement battery part... They sell every other part.
Summary: This blender works very well and performs its many functions admirably, although the advertised run time per charge is misleading. We use it regularly for blending and preparing our Isagenix supplement shakes, requiring about one minute per preparation. Our total run time betwen required charging is less than ten minutes on average.
