I found this on Amazon (checking for comments from another seller that doesn't yet have any):

Quote:
>The Tayama Personal Blender designed for your active, fast-paced lifestyle.The 20 ounce BPA-free plastic Sport Bottle comes complete with a carry hook and lid storage when put away. A powerful 300-watt motor turns ice and frozen fruit into your favorite smoothies, health shakes, and diet drinks. The Blender base is small enough to keep on your counter every day or take on the go.
and immediately below it:
Quote:
Helpful Hint: This appliance may only be used for a maximum 3 minutes of continuous use.
Allow to cool down between uses. This appliance is not intended to crush ice or frozen food. Use only for liquid and cut soft fruit.
Let me add the finishing touch: the above was taken from their own photo-enriched add extolling their product.

I guess the manufacturers and their agents assume we're all jackasses - and if their even 1% correct they make a fortune.
