    Right here, silly!
    Thankfully, mine is still in great condition, but I have 2 backups of the same model, just in case. ;)

    I have a cheap plastic rival that I have had since I started, so going back to 2007. Still using it. I do have a back up cuisinart. I never get bubbles in my soap, and I think it is because of the design of the bottom part. I don't have issues with it falling over on me, I usually stick it in a tall plastic cup that I keep with hot water in it to rinse it. It is easy to clean, and still works great for the 10 bucks I paid for it. That's a dollar a year LOL.

    My cheap little plastic one from Amazon is still going strong after 2 years, but I always find myself eyeballing the detachable stainless ones. I can't bring myself to buy a new one until it finally dies, though. ):

    As a hobbyist. I make about 2 pound batches. I've been using this one for a while.

    I've been happy with it. I will say that if you run it continuously, it will heat up. AFAIK that's true of all stick blenders. However, the place you grip doesn't get hot. I usually run it for a few seconds and let it cool for a few seconds. It doesn't heat up and you get to trace in about the same amount of time.
