I received this Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender with the Whisk and Chopper Attachment for a Christmas present. I love it! It's sleek design fits your hand perfect and will help you so you can blend in a pot, bowl or a pitcher. This came with the chopper/grinder attachment, the whisk and a mixing cup. Colors are stainless steel and black and this holds a 3-year limited warranty.

This works very well for chopping nuts, blending cheese for your homemade macaroni and cheese dinner, your meats that are cooked, and any meringues and whipped topping. It has 200 watts of power to handle a lot of your needs. So easy to put in your big pan right on the stove while you are cooking to blend what you need to instead of transferring the food and back again.



Clean up is easy with this and some pieces are dishwasher- safe. This is an item that is very useful in the kitchen and my home would be lost without it. The booklet that comes with this hand blender also has some very good recipes in it.

This is Made in the USA by Cuisinart in East Windsor, New Jersey.

I absolutely loved this little device. My husband and I received this as a wedding shower gift, and it got light use in the beginning of our marriage. I was pretty intimidated by it, to be honest, and wasn't sure how much I would actually use the immersion blender device, but I did use the mini-food processor a fair amount.

Well, after less than a year of light use, the thing broke. It was like the motor inside died, and I could no longer use the food processor part, or the hand blender attachment. So, it ended up being useless and going in the garbage.

I really did love it though, and thought it was extremely handy and a versatile little piece of equipment. But, that being said, it should definitely have lasted for longer than a year. Maybe I just got a bad one, but I didn't have the receipt so I wasn't able to try and return it, as it was a gift, so, I chalked it up as a loss and hopefully can find a cool replacement for this item in the future.

Durability
Mine broke after less than a year of pretty light use - cooking for just my husband and I. It probably only got used 1-2 times per month. It should definitely not have broke in that amount of time. Pretty disappointed, even though I really did think this was a great item.

Great kitchen tool to have on hand

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

I received this as a gift for Christmas a couple years ago and now I wouldn't live without it. I use it to chop all my vegetables and it is much easier and faster. I use the hand blender to mix things right in the pot such as applesauce, no need to use a blender. I like that it doesn't take up a lot of storage space. The only thing I don't use much is the whisk attachment.

Ease of Cleaning
I love that it's dishwasher safe

The SmartStick is a great addition to your kitchen.

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

Love this handheld blender. Great for soups, as you can blend right in the pot rather than trying to pour hot soup into a blender. Avoids burning you and making a huge mess, which happened to me when I tried to pour it into a blender or food processor.
The cord is long. It has two speeds, both of which are helpful.
Nice to have the measuring/mixing cup. Used that to make mayonnaise.
It's easy to clean.
It doesn't take much room to store.
The whisk attachment is also great.
Very simple to operate, and can easily be operated with one hand. That was very helpful to me when adding ingredients while I was blending.
I bought this on the recommendation of my daughter, who is a chef. I didn't think I needed yet another hand appliance, but I've found it extremely useful.
This is nice looking - silver and black - which is not particularly important but a nice bonus.
The key is remembering to use it!

Easy to use - Does what is should

By

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

I have read mixed reviews about this product but found one at a really good price so decided it was worth a try. I really do like this hand blender. It is easy to use, fits your hand well, has enough power to mix what you need, and has great attachments. I like that I don't have to reach for multiple appliances to do prepare different dishes. The Whip attachment works great for what I need and is so simple to switch with the blender attachment. Granted, I don't need a "heavy duty - blend raw vegetables in my soup" hand blender. So if you need an easy, comfortable, hand blender to use - this is the one. Cleaning is a breeze as well. The attachments are easy to remove and can be cleaned in no time in the sink or if you like in the dish washer. I typically do not put things like this in the dish washer since I like to hand wash every nook and cranny on items such as this. However, it takes no time to clean the attachments.

Only Blender I Need!

By

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

This hand held blender is fantastic. I use it for everything. I don't even have a regular blender anymore. Can use for everything from cocktails, soup, to home made baby food. It's very nice to blend things in the same pot as you cook them, rather than having to transfer food into a blender.

Blending Power
Takes a little bit of time to break up ice, but it will get through anything and make a smooth consistency.

Versatility
I love that you can blend a cup full or an entire stock pot full with this hand blender. Whisk attachment is an nice touch so you can also make eggs, whip cream, etc.

Ease of Cleaning
Just run it under water when you are done to avoid anything sticking to it. If you let stuff dry on it will be hard to get into the area around the blade to clean.

Ease of Use
Pop the two pieces together and go. It's a piece of cake. Then comes apart easily when you're done.

Design
Nice shape - easy to hold. Buttons are in the right location.

Durability
I've been using mine regularly for over two years now with no signs of any problems.

Wonderful Product!

By 

from USA

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

Honestly, this is one of my favorite kitchen products ever. I have used multiple other immersion blenders, but this one is by far the best. Not only is this product so versatile, but it is also so compact. Each of the units can serve multiple purposes, and I love how easily it packs into small spaces. I no longer need to use a large food processor because I am able to use the blade attachment in this piece without the bulk! The stainless steel exterior is also so easy to clean and looks more sleek than other options out there.

Ease of Cleaning
A rinse with soap and water is usually enough to remove all the visible dirt. Generally speaking, immersion blenders are harder to clean near the blade, but I don't think this product is any different than other models available.

Ease of Use
So simple! Each of the components fits together very easily, and the design is very simple to navigate. The power button is not too sensitive, nor is it too difficult to depress. Overall a wonderful addition to my kitchen armamentarium.

Immersion Blender

By 

from Grand Rapids, MN

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

Works very well for pureeing soups. The whisk is harder to handle.

Blending Power
The blending power is very good, even though it is not adjustable.

Versatility
Good for soups and mashed potatoes, that is mainly what I've used it for. I've also used it for chopping nuts.

Ease of Cleaning
Just throw it in the dishwasher and it washes up well. If you are hand washing it, it can be harder to clean under the blades.

Ease of Use
The immersion blender part of this blender works fabulously. The whisk part is not as good. When using that in a stainless steel bowl you REALLY need to hold onto the bowl or it will start spinning too. You cannot use the whisk attachment and use a rubber spatula to clean the sides of the bowl at the same time.

Design
The handle is the right size for my hand.
I wish the cord was a little bit longer. I need to work closer to the edge of my counter than I'd like to and sometimes I'd like to keep the warm pan on the stovetop.

Durability
No problems with the motor. The blades have stayed very sharp.

This is a great kitchen tool!

Comments about Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender:

I love how this hand blender works so fast on just about everything I use it for! I blend all my nieces meals because she can't eat solid foods and this makes my life so much easier. From pot roast to soups this hand blender is my #1 kitchen tool! Have recommended it to several people and to restaurants.

Blending Power
Super powerful, great to use. Has no problem blending meats with other foods.

Versatility
I use it for everything! From drinks to soups to roast beast!

Ease of Cleaning
Should come with a brush to get under the blades but other than that it's a good tool. It's dishwasher safe and doesn't need to soak overnight if used on sticky starchy foods like top roman.

Ease of Use
People with Arthritis can use it with no real effort. The force it has to blend works so well all you have to do is hold it.

Design
Fits just right in my little hands but also fits my husbands big hands as well. Great design.

Durability
Only had it for a month and still works like it's brand new. I have even dropped it and didn't crack or break.
