While Durabrand is sort of the "no name" brand of kitchen appliances, I have always been satisfied with the quality and reliability of their products.

A great addition to my kitchen has been the Durabrand immersion blender. This blender has two speeds, and is useful for various tasks around the kitchen. It is very handy for making individual smoothies when you do not want to get out or dirty a full-sized blender. It is also great at mixing, chopping, and pureeing ingredients as you cook and bake. I like to use it to "mash" bananas before adding them to bananna bread, because it is quick, easy, and breaks up all the little pieces much better than I could do on my own. This makes for a smoother batter, and a better textured bread.

This blender is also easy to clean. It twists apart into two pieces, separating the motor from the stem and blade. If the motor/corded piece has splatters on it, it can simply be wiped down with a warm cloth, while the stem can be immersed in water, or put into the dishwasher for a good cleaning.

Of course, there are limits to this product, simply because it is not a traditional blender. For making milkshakes, I have found that a regular blender is better because it is more powerful and can mix through hard ice cream. Also, if you are mixing a large quantity of liquid, a real blender is best. That way, your mixture can be churned and mixed at high speeds, instead of being more or less "stirred" with this one.

I left the Warrenty rating blank, because I do not know about the warrenty on this product. I believe Durabrand has some sort of "Satisfaction Guarantee", but I don't know the details. That said, I have never had a reason to look into it, either! This blender has never let me down, and I would definitely suggest it to others.
