Have just joined and typed a lengthy note. Do not know if it went through. I'll make this short. Need a strong IB for smoothies, ice, frozen fruit, pureeing soup, hummus, etc. My KA Immersion blender died and I was using this in a glass mason jar. I only want to use glass or stainless steel. The Breville Control Grip looks too large to fit in the wide-mouthed mason jar, but seems strong. If I get this IB, is there a large, not gigantic, strong glass or stainless container that this will fit into. On Amazon they have stainless, but some complaints of rust. Would actually prefer glass. May have to get a different IB. Does anyone know of one which will do the above and be of good quality?
