How to kill a Blender....

Me and Blenders, well we just don't have a good relationship.  I have managed to kill THREE in the last 10 or so years.  Can you believe that?  How did I kill them?  Well the first was a fluke, I was making salsa, and all the sudden the container just popped, I had salsa everywhere in my Grandma's kitchen, let me tell you, it was an enormous mess! 
The second blender, well I was making an extra thick chocolate shake for hubby and it burned the motor.  The third, which I still have, well, I haven't killed it yet, but it doesn't work for anything. 

So, I decided to try an emerssion blender instead.  SUCCESS!  I found a blender that makes a perfectly smooth smoothie.  I love this blender!  It can be used for so many great things, I haven't tried them all yet, but I will!
Here is the one I bought, normally $54, it was on sale at Khol's, and I had a 30% off coupon, so it ended up being $22 plus change!  That's the cheapest blender I've gotten yet. 
 The thing I like best about this, it comes with a special cup, that has a lid, and you can make the perfect amount of smoothie for you, or for 2-3 people.  and you don't have this big blender to clean up, it is easy to clean.  Simply twist off the silver base, and run it under water, and rinse thoroughly, as for the cup, it is dishwasher safe, and easy to clean as well.


  1. My blender doesn't work so well either. Does this work for crushing ice? I use my smoothie maker for doing that normally but I would love to only have one thing to all!

  2. I am interested in this blender. Who makes it?

  3. Congrats! I have an immersion (sp?) blender as well and love how fast I can whip up some salad dressing. Mine's not as fancy as yours but I still love it!

  4. believe it or not you can burn the motor on one of those blenders (I am not going to try to spell that kind of blender)I have done it to mine trying to mash my refried beans. So annoying. But while it worked I loved it. i need to go buy me a new one.
