The best Cuisinart blenders are probably the Smart Stick range of hand blenders. Cuisinart is better at their hand blenders than stand blenders, as I gathered from experience and hundreds of user reviews online. I’m not saying that their stand blenders are totally bad, but Cuisinart stand blenders are generally not as heavy duty or as powerful as other prominent brands.
Cuisinart hand blenders, on the other hand, received some very good feedback from users. They are known for quick blending tasks in the kitchen such as creaming a pot of soup right there on the stove, and they are very easy to clean as well. They are handy, so they are popular.
Here are a few Cuisinart blenders that are worth mentioning:
Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender is an immersion hand blender which provides smooth and even blending for anything that you wish from smoothies, soup to crepe batters. For first-time users, the push-button controls are easy to use and this blender is convenient due to its lightweight design. Splatters are also avoidable with the protective blade guard!
The best feature about this Cuisinart hand blender is that its long shaft can reach into deeper mixes and mix directly from pot and pan. The easy to grip body with perfectly placed controls make it a breeze to use. This little appliance makes no noise at all, a silent blender that will not cause you to shy away from blending during what would be inappropriate times with noisy blenders. It also comes with a 2 cup plastic beaker.
Efficient and Easy to Clean
Cuisinart CSB-76 hand blender is one hassle free blender. If you are pressed for time, just separate the blender’s blade assembly from the motor and put the parts in the dishwasher. There is very little to clean afterwards and even then, it literally takes seconds.
Unlike many plastic models, the stainless steel shaft will not be stained and the blades are incredibly sharp. Thanks to its sharpness, you will get a smooth consistent blend in no time!
Many users have commented that not only is this blender easy to clean, but that it is the most solid in comparison to other blenders. They particularly like the handy features such as the detachable base and extra long mixer. This helps especially when you need to blend bigger batches at one go.
Another plus point is if you are worried about disturbing your neighbors when blending in the wee hours of the morning or late at night. This blender has been vouched to not cause a racket!
For its price, Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender is an absolute bargain. You have a hand blender that is convenient, easy to clean, powerful and durable without burning a hole in your pocket. What more can you ask for?
The Cuisinart CSB-79 Smart Stick Hand Blender is a cheaper blender in the same line, and it is decent hand blender that works as far as it should as one. The whisk and chopper attachments are just that – attachments.
he CSB-77 is probably one of the most unique among all the Cuisinart hand blenders as it has two attachments; a small chopper jar for chopping vegetables and a whisk to whisk away all the troubles of doing it manually.
This hand held blender is good for making soups direct from the pot and mixing drinks in your cup, you may find the blender itself the only thing you will be using.
The chopper although very capable looking is somewhat lacking, as you still need to chop the veggies into small size bits or it will most probably jam and cause some unwanted damage to the Cuisinart hand blender. The whisk attachment is somewhat flimsy looking but is still capable of whisking trough light food stuff such as egg whites and melted chocolate or butter, but I would not recommend you doing anything more than that.
This is a good product to buy if you’re mainly using the blender, and you can use it for conveniently blending soups in the pot, or making a smoothie with frozen fruits and yogurt. You can also use it to froth milk for your morning coffee, if you like that.
However the Cuisinart CSB-79 Smart Stick Hand Blender is not dishwasher safe so you’ll have to wash by hand. The good thing is, it is not difficult to wash so this shouldn’t be a big problem.
The whisk attachment is kinda flimsy but a reviewer suggested using the blender to whip an egg for omelet instead of using the whisk.
The chopper is decent for small jobs like chopping up an onion or mincing parsley, though of course, you’ll have to cut the food into smaller pieces before you can put them into the chopper. To get evenly chopped pieces, you can’t fill the chopper to the top either.
In fact, if you’re buying this, it’d be better if you’re just expecting use out of the blender. Many users have complained that using the chopper or grating cheese will strip the teeth of the Smart Stick that connects to different attachments.
