Stick blender works better than any full size blender I've owned,

I had one of those combo food processor/blenders die on me a couple months ago, and I had to decide how to replace both items. In the end, I went with this stick blender, and I'm thrilled I did. Not only is it nice to store something so small, but it's so much easier than a blender. Nothing ever gets stuck at the bottom since I just move the stick around. It makes soups a ton easier since I don't have to do any transfers. My only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that you have to have the right amount of stuff to blend to make sure the stick is fully immersed (or else make a crazy mess with everything flying everywhere). I had a smaller soup recipe that did require that I hold the pot up so the stuff collected on one side and I could blend with the stick. Still, I think that was easier than transferring to a blender to puree, and I also think of the countless times my blender would just stop because stuff got stuck around the blades. No more with this! I've only had it a short while, so I can't speak to the longevity, but I honestly don't mind having to buy another one at this price if I know it will work better than any of the more expensive blenders I've bought (and had die).
