I blew out the motor of my immersion blender while making some stale bread into breadcrumbs with the chopper cup attatchment. This is my second Braun, the first one's motor got blown out making a smoothie. I haven't even had the new one for a year.
Any recommendations for a longer lasting, quality immersion blender? I know I'm going to have to pay more than I'd like to... the Braun's are more my budget, but replacing them 2x a year is not. I like having the choppy cup and whisk too.
