Summary: THE BLADE HEAD DOES NOT GO WITH THIS MOTOR.... I CAN T RETURN IT BECAUSE I ALREADY THREW THE BOX AWAY... THE BOX AND MOTOR PART HAD FINGER PRINTS ALL OVER THEM, SO I KNOW THAT SOMEONE HAD USED IT OR AT LEAST OPENED IT....
Summary: I had the original version of this that had a metal bottom, I used it thousands of time making smoothies every morning for probably 8 yrs. It would blend up ice instantly, just a great device. Finally, the motor burned out so, i wanted a new one. This was the only model offered. After making a few smoothies, the plastic casing broke off and into my smoothie, and another stuck in my garbage disposal. Totally idiotic to make this out of plastic.
Summary: It is great to make smoothies and soups and guacamole and i could even crushed hazelnuts with this! I use it since i don't have another blender… It is good for everything i have cooked so far :)
Summary: I was in the market for an immersion blender and saw this one for less than twenty bucks at a local discount store. I was looking for something a little higher end but couldn't resist the low price and the fact that it had a storage case. Turns out it worked really well for pureeing soup which is what I primarily use it for. Recently I took it out of the case and noticed a small crack in the plastic shaft.
