Need feedback on immersion blenders

I don't see a recent discussion about immersion blenders, and I need a new one. Does anyone have a recommendation?

This is what I have, and I really like it because it's more than just an immersion blender and imo you can't beat the brand name or the right price.

Shop Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender CSB-77 at CHEFS.

another vote for cuisinart. i almost got arrested when an ex -gf and i broke up, and she took my cuisinart boat motor out of my stuff (we shared an apt. on 72nd and colombus, just off:the park) and i took it back before she got home.

true story. nyc cops are great. they just gave her that look...


btw, imo, wolfgang puck stuff is crapola. my wife has bought his stuff, including knives and baking things on qvc ( she's addicted), and it's worse than the cheapest crap you find in chinatown on blankets on the street or in tourist shops for $5.

no offense, s&p.

maybe you got his original pre production swag.

I have a waring commercial stick blender. It's classified as "light duty" commercial but compared to the ones offered at the consumer level it's built like a tank.

7" Light-Duty Quik Stik® Immersion Blender | Waring® Commercial

Available online or at restaurant supply stores. Runs about $80

.40

That's the one I have as well. And the attachments do come in handy for small jobs.
The red one works better though
