I wouldn't say that blenders are "scientific or technical," nor would I say
that their manuals are used by sales representives or technicians. But, I
would have a technical writer produce a manual for them.... Same with cars,
TVs, phones, tents, and about a gazillion other consumer products. The
description also seems to imply that tech writers to make anything for people
who _use_ a product.
