The previous threads on this subject are a little old so here's a new question.
Has anyone used or owned a DeLonghi stick blender? The Warings look good but the DeL. is longer and has a triple blade mixer with the blades being off set in different directions. Both have enough power for my use.
I want to stay away from any blender with plastic motor-to-shaft fittings, the Cuisinarts are not an option.
