Had blender for months (May 2020) sitting in box. Took it out to use for the 1st time (Oct 2020). Turned it on low speed. Pulsating and alternating between high & low. Felted the handle getting warm. A couple mins longer, it was hot and changing the temp of my oil. I took it out of my oil and sat it on the counter. Hmmmmm...i thought. So I used my spatula to pick up where i left off mixing. Trued the blender after sitting for 2mins, NOTHING. No power, NOTHING. Tries a different power outlet, no luck. Returning.
