Airmiles Redemption # 3

This one isn't so exciting as it was meant to replace something that stopped working (overuse maybe??) - an IMMERSION BLENDER. Like this one -
I was thinking of all the silky smooth soups and sauces and smoothies and wishing for a full size blender but I didn't have enough points for that. Now strangely enough when my box came from UPS and I opened it I was surprised to find this - instead.
The Airmiles people had run out of the Immersion Blender and had sent the full size super dooper one as a replacement. WOW! The big one is worth, like, 8 times the amount of the little one (I googled) so I am super happy. I still want and immersion blender and am saving my points for it as we speak.

All I've blended so far is the base for the next batch of ice cream. More on that next time.

I agree--an immersion blender is great to have for soups and sauces etc. But it isn't a replacement for a full-sized blender, in my opinion. It sounds like you lucked out! Wow!

Jammy so-and-so!! Well done.

Wow, what a deal!

You got a great deal! Although, I had that exact same blender and had a lot of trouble with it. The power button didn't work on the first one, and the second one flat out broke after a few months. Better luck with your blender!
