Summary: Worked great for COLD items but do NOT but this cheap plastic one!! Spend the tiny extra and get metal cause like me one day you will use to make gravy or soups like it says it's great for but the thin cheap plastic melts and deforms in hotter liquids such as gravy.
Excerpt: The upside of this blender, it's inexpensive ... the downside of this blender, it's cheap. It broke after a grand total of four uses. The manufacturer replaced it, and the replacement broke after another ten uses.

Summary: I had this for years and liked it, but I just melted the plastic head while pureeing a pot of hot apples. If you're careful not to immerse this in hot liquids for too long (probably only 30-60 seconds at a time) you'll be fine. My next immersion blender will have a metal head however.
Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender blends like the big guys!

Excerpt: The Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender may be small. But don't let that fool you. It packs a punch! It is really a strong little blender. I love making my own pasta sauces and this is the best little blender to use in the pot to blend my sauces. It's also wonderful for smoothies and shakes.
Excerpt: Oster 2-Speed Handheld Blender 2609, the most recent blender I got over online for a pretty decent price for the brand. I am satisfied if the appliance works for more than a year if I got it for less than twenty bucks, it has been just few months now.
Excerpt: This is my second Oster hand blender purchase. I purchased one for my mom after she used mine. It is easy to use and easy to clean. I use it for smoothies and shakes, and it crushes ice also. It is a powerful blender for its size. It does have a 250 watt motor.
