So a thoughtful sibling gave me a Cuisinart immersion blender for the holidays. (OK, so they gave it to Mom who said, "What would I do with this?" And since I wanted one, I grabbed it.) But, it is the very basic model. I wanted one with the mincer and whisk attachments. (I don't think they come with any others, do they? I couldn't find out.) Anyhoo, I read the reviews on Amazon and it appears that when it works it is great, but on the other hand, there seems to be a problem with the plastic gears. So then I started thinking whether I should hold out for a Bamix. Because of the enormous price difference, I started to waver. What are your thoughts?
