Immersion (stick) blender recommendations?

My current stick blender, a cheap-but-good model I got at Aldi's, where the blending part attaches to the motor part is worn out. I mainly use it for blending soups and mixing up salad dressings.

Do you have one that you like? Features you think are important?

Thanks.

1. I have the Cuisinart stick.

Love it...purees soup in minutes.

I mostly use it for soups and have not used the other attachments.

2. Cuisinart is good enough

3. I like my Cuisinart stick blender

I have the one that comes with a whisk attachment, a deep cup to blend in, and a little chopper thing. I've used all the attachments and the blender part pretty often and find they all work well.

It's been years since I bought mine, but it is equivalent to this set: https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store/product/cuisinart-reg-smart-stick-reg-2-speed-hand-blender-with-3-piece-accessory-set-in-stainless-steel/5315667 The major difference I see is the way the things attach to the motor. I bought a storage box to keep all the bits together - I find that very handy.

4. The one I bought at least 25 years ago is still made

https://www.amazon.com/Braun-MR400HC-WH-Multiquick-Blender-Chopper/dp/B000056HSY

Kinda weird that it's so expensive. Only 200w and even the cheaper new ones nowadays have much more wattage. I'm quite sure it was far less expensive when I bought it and probably one of the cheapest I could find at the time. Still it's been going strong all these years later.

5. Love the KitchenAid

Breaks up even ice cubes really well. I don't use a blender at all anymore. I call it my boat motor"!

6. I own two, a Braun with a gazillion speeds and a Cuisinart with two (on and off)

Both work equally well. I typically use the Cuisinart.
