Summary: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! I ordered this item 02/2014 used it once to purée hot tomatoes worked great. 2nd time, 8/2014, wouldn't purée my tomatoes. Kept bogging down. Resorted to my food processor (which I was trying to get away from pouring hot stuff from pot).
I really love the idea of a cordless stick blender
22 April 2015
Summary: I really love the idea of a cordless stick blender, and don't mind the fact that it is a bit heavier compared to the model with a cord. What is troubling is that it doesn't have the power that the corded model does.
Summary: Just get the wired version of this. I had one of these for years, but the battery finally gave out. Because buying a replacement battery was the same price as buying a new one, I just bought a new one. However, after only a couple months, the battery stopped holding a charge just like my old one.
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.
Use it everyday. Nice not having to deal with a cord.

Summary: I use this every morning to whip milk for my coffee. I have also used it to mix, make chicken salad, cut up nuts, etc. I love not having to deal with a cord. It is somewhat large and unwieldy. Perhaps the next generation can be smaller and more easily handled.
Summary: "Cuisinart", I thought, "it'll be fine" I thought. It was great the first couple of times I used it. After that I just figured I hadn't left it plugged in long enough. This weekend, I used it to puree some soup and had left it plugged in for 5 or 6 hours.
