Do I need this?
Apparently I do. I look forward to making my own whip cream and applesauce.
Blends hands and more
Midnight madness be damned, this deal distracted me instead. Refurbished sure, but that Prime deal made it too juicy to ignore.
Does that mean previously used??
Yes, most likely.
I already got my unit that I bought. Yeah, it arrived REALLY quickly (following day). It had no sign of usage. The blades on the hand blender were extremely sharp, and the blender itself is very heavy duty (very well made).
To good to pass up for me as well. I already have a better one that I bought from here, but I’ll be happy to give this to my wife so she doesn’t keep putting mine away in the wrong place. Too bad it only lets me buy one though, these things are useful.

I emailed them
I wouldn’t worry too much about it being used. Odds are good that somebody bought this thinking it was cordless because that seems to be the norm in not showing a cord coming off of the blender. It really is a deceptive practice and unless you look at the specs and see that it has a wattage rating for the motor you would think it is cordless. P=IV so 200W AC = 1.67A * 120V which makes sense, 200W DC = 16.7A * 12V would be insane and a huge battery pack for a hand blender.
Check it out when you get it. It’s not going to be used like you’d get at a yard sale. And it could be new with a damaged box or some other thing that makes it not look new. I bought two blink mini cameras and they were “acceptable” condition from here. They’re brand new in a factory sealed beat up box.
It’s a gamble, sure. But $10? I’m in.
Bought this the last time it was offered for a few dollars more and will say that the build quality is great. It’s heavy and not cheap-feeling in any way. I bought it primarily to use with various batters and will rarely if ever use the blender attachment.
The only issue I have with it is that to me, it’s too fast. It has only one speed and letting up on the button does not slow it down. It’s a bit clumsy to use at first as you have to continuously hold down a button to unlock it and then hold down the power button to run it but it’s okay. I will give it away if it doesn’t get much use. I’m only one person so my batters and things tend to be smaller in quantity and the speed of this combined with the smaller batch of batter feels like overkill.
Great deal for sure, though.
The description says variable speed but it seems it not based on comments, which is it?
I think that slide bar at the top controls the speed. It also has a pulse function.
I’m still looking for the manual.
I give up. This looks the same right? Right?
