Not to say that there are poorly made immersion blenders out there, but the instance you related of "blender trauma" was what I would refer to as user error.

Of course, that doesn't deal with the fact that the product was obviously poorly made that the blade broke off in her finger but...really? WHY was she sticking her finger in it?
