Corey123 I think you misunderstood. The motor does not go in the dishwasher, but some units have a feature where the motor section twist off so you can put the blade part in the dishwasher. They are designed that way on purpose.

Yeah, I remember you saying that.

But I haven't seen any of these.

At least halfway up the shaft. I think you should try it again and see if it isn't true for you as well.

Get a cheapy one to start with, then as you gain comfort and confidence, you can expand your experience to master this tool like a seasoned pro.

Thanks for the advice Corey but I think I'm safer with my food processor.

Just a followup - I got my Braun stick blender a couple days ago & I've used it at least half a dozen times. I love it!!! I'm still learning what to do & what not to do with the different attachments! Made a couple messes with it along the way but I'll get there! Thanks for everyone's input.

I've had one for years, but forget about using it. I need to organize my gadgets so I have everything more accessible.

Cheap Braun--$10-15. If you are going to make smoothies, etc. every day, then invest in a Bamix.
