How long have you had it for? It got pretty bad reviews on Amazon but i take reviews with a grain of salt. Some people will complain if things arent shipped in plated gold!

 

Close to two years I think?  Was using a home cook type cuisinart immersion blender prior to that.  I've run roughly 10-20 gallons of sauce per month for most of the time I've had it with no problems.  Fun fact:  Waring is the commercial division of cuisinart.  

 

 

SmokenFire - Another question. On that immersion blender can you set the speed in such a way that some sauces get pulverized and some sauces end up with more a verde feel to them?  Thanks.

 

The model I have has two speeds (low & high).  If I want a sauce to be a little chunkier I just partially blend it - you can immerse and blend till smooth or  you can immerse and blend in pulses to the desired consistency.

Whiners be like, "why can't this thing make 40 lbs of peanut butter?"

Or, "I just tried to mix grout for my bathroom tile and smoke start leaking out".

:rofl:

 

Most online reviews are garbage. Half are fake (the good and bad)... and the real ones, half the time the person is complaining about something like slow shipping and giving the actual product one star. The fuck?

Blendtec will get the job done.  It is an investment for sure.  I got a reconditioned one for a little less money.  The carafe was kinda hammered and after a couple years, the blade seized up, I think the rubber gasket around the shaft got old and brittle.  Bought a new carafe from fleabay, good to go!

That just proves Cuisinart is garbage. They have a "good" line and a "cheap pretty" line. I hate Cuisinart so don't mind me.

It reminds me when DeWalt bought Black&Decker (or visa versa I can't remember and don't give a shit) B&D was the "homeowner" line (cheaper) and DeWalt was supposed to be their "contractor" line. Well, they are both shit. So there's that. :rofl: :rofl:

Why can't companies just make a decent product and sell it and be proud of it? Wait. I know why, because 9 times out of 10 people will choose the cheaper made in china garbage and they SELL a shit ton of it, repeatedly, because it doesn't last.

~rant over.

I have a Cuisinart food processor under the tree right now for my wife.

I couldn't find anything under $200 that didn't have bad reviews for poor reliability, so I took a chance.

That was in 1960. The buyout had nothing to do with the quality issues of the 80s-90s, all companies had quality issues then lol.

 

I like DeWalt tools. Today's is pretty solid.

There is no more Black & Decker [tools]. The parent company is now 'Stanley Black & Decker'. DeWalt has become the "homeowner" line (IMO). I don't use them or see them on job sites at all anymore. Makita, Bosch, Hitatchi, and Festool are the big ones I see on job sites now. Maybe that's just Twisp, where quality is paramount. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Most online reviews are garbage. Half are fake (the good and bad)... and the real ones, half the time the person is complaining about something like slow shipping and giving the actual product one star. The f**k?

`
My wife has been an Amazon Prime member since early on and the family does use the reviews to "gauge" our buys but the above nails the important part of these reviews, you need to read them! Generally you can tell which are legitimately written by someone who is happy, disappointed or fence walking about the product.

I truly believe Amazon should edit out 1 star reviews of a PRODUCT for a SELLERS issue only.

EDIT: Needed to add "legitimately" to above post.

I see it all the time with tools, especially tools that I own. If you want to learn how to gage reviews, read the ones about something you already own. 9/10 times, it's improper use, or abuse. People bitching about the tiniest things like the manual wasn't clear or "didn't perform as I expected". The flip side is someone gets the thing and raves about it after using it one time, also not a comprehensive review.


And then there's these: :rofl:

Just checked Pure Evil reviews on Amazon for PE 1.5. The only two low ratings are a 1* for small bottle size and a 3* for " wish it had some flavor, but it does pack a punch for heat "....:banghead:

Thanks Lady Salsa.  Wasn't sure if it belonged here or not, which is why I started a seperate thread for it.

 

You are a champ!
