watts used by small appliances are often inflated in ad copy to make them seem more powerful. This is annoying when you actually care about finding lower watt ones

like this 1000 watt blender I chose over a 1500 watt one.. uses 200 watts blending ice

@joeyh that's awesome(ly annoying). We have a home blender (a powerful, 1500 watt rated Vitamix) and a travel one (I think it's also 1000 watt rated). I would be happy if it was really only 200 :)
