Blends well but poorly made

Comments about Cuisinart Smooth Operator SMO-56 2-Speed Blender:

So at the time that I purchased the Cuisinart Smooth Operator SMO-56-2 Speed Blender it was on sale and I thought I got a pretty good deal. The smoothies and protein shakes (the main reason I wanted to purchase a blender) came out good as long as I didn't use to much frozen stuff; maybe 1 or 2 ice cubes or frozen fruit; and even then it was a bit granulated. So my recommendation would be to stick with chilled liquids if you want a cold smoothie or something.

As far as overall usage, I would say it lasted me a few months with varied usage. Probably used it 4 - 5 days a week for the first 2 weeks and then once a month for a while until I couldn't.

Gradually it operated so vigorously that some of the plastic parts came off, which also made it louder (sorry to my sleep in neighbors) and there was some leaking. After that never really worked right and couldn't/ didn't want to use it because it got kind of gross from all the rushed cleanings.

I love this blender! It does everything I need it to! It crushes whole ice cubes in a matter of minutes! And, when i'm blending up smothies, it makes them perfectly, and smooth! This blender is perfect for anyone who needs somehting that will blend anything from smothies, to ice cubes, and so much more! I recommend this blender to everyone! Its perfect!

A Blast to Use for parties....

Comments about Cuisinart Smooth Operator SMO-56 2-Speed Blender:

I am very pleased with this product. Its not one of those blenders that only does right for a month and blows up. It really makes good smoothies and drinks. I use it to mince veggies too. At times it can be somewhat laggy but i havent had a blender that doesnt occasionally do that. It looks great with stainless steel appliances and fits a very modern kitchen. The best gift on my kitchen registry.

Summarize this product in one sentence.

Comments about Cuisinart Smooth Operator SMO-56 2-Speed Blender:

The machine is extremely loud, it doesn't do a great job of choping ice, frozen strawberries or frozen bananas. In fact, mine just shredded the plastic base blades becasue evidently the banana was too hard.

Blending Power
it doesn't liquify everything very well

Versatility
only use for smoothies because of the pour spout on it's base

Ease of Cleaning
too many removable parts that need to be cleaned

Design
plastic and hard frozen items don't work well together

Durability
Mine just broke

A decent blender for the price.

Comments about Cuisinart Smooth Operator SMO-56 2-Speed Blender:

We used to have this blender but eventually traded it in for a better one - the vitamix. The blender itself is okay, but doesnt seem as high quality as a vitamix. The appearance is pretty nice though, and it does seem to have pretty good power to it.

Nice blender works great.

Comments about Cuisinart Smooth Operator SMO-56 2-Speed Blender:

We bought this new blender a month ago and I would definately recommend to anyone looking for a new one. The price was a bit high but the performance is great. We do alot of entertaining and for drinks with ice this one works so well that you dont have to continuously move the ice to be slushy. I love the style.
