Thanks for understanding, Addie! They may have hidden the cord to make the pic look cleaner. Nevertheless it is confusing, and the write up on Amazon doesn't indicate how the power is sourced.

The one I have must be plugged in, however if I had known there was a rechargeable cordless, I would have gotten that one. Here it is. Watch the video...

Thanks for posting this! I saw that there were 2 versions but both showed no cord in the pic on Amazon and BBB. Very confusing! I wish they would photograph products more accurately.

A lot of the reviewers say it's too large and heavy for them. I wonder if there's a cordless brand that's lighter in weight.

Pictures aren't always worth a thousand words, you need to read the descriptions too. If it doesn't say "cordless" or "rechargeable", it's not. It's only reasonable that the cordless rechargeable is going to be heavier, it's your choice.

Mine is corded. It's never been an issue. One less thing that won't be ready to go when you need it.

I assume the cordless ones have a holder that you mount on the wall and keep plugged in so it can charge the blender.

Here's a great review of all the immersion blenders on the market. Their fave is the Breville. Has anyone tried it?
