I purchased the Proctor Silex Immersion Hand Blender specifically for blending pancake mix with protein, and husk powder. My first attempt of mixing with this blender didn't go too well. When I tried mixing all the ingredients together in water it stopped rotating in the batter after 5 seconds. I decided to cut the husk powder down to 2 teaspoons on my next attempt and I had better success. The blender did a nice job of mixing everything together and produced nice thick pancakes. I used this blender once a day for well over a year before the electrical cord started to give me problems. I never rolled the cord up or put it in any compressing angles, but it still started to turn off and on with the slightest of movement. The blender never officially stopped working, but I grew tired of the cords sensitivity and purchased another blender. I would love to recommend the Proctor Silex Immersion Hand Blender, but I have serious concerns about its durability.
