Lots of power,
This review is from: Cuisinart CSB-77 Smart Stick Hand Blender with Whisk and Chopper Attachments (Kitchen)
I bought the Cuisinart Smart Stick to replace my Braun immersion blender, whose plastic was finally cracking after 12 years (it still runs like a charm). The Smart Stick is a nice elegant design with it's stainless steel. The multi attachments are nice. The food chopped does short work of herbs and nuts (can end up mincing too fine if you're not careful). The whisk is scary. I haven't yet figured out what type of a container I should be whisking in. Tried whisking some pudding in a deep 4 cup glass measuring cup (2 cups of pudding) and ended up with pudding covering a good portion of myself, the wall and surrounding area. I think you probably need to use the tall narrow container that the machine comes with, otherwise watch out. The other cool feature of course is the fact that the power unit detaches from whatever attachment you're using, so quite literally you can have three things going on at one time, simply by detaching and connecting the power unit to another attachment. Which also lends itself to easy clean up. Great small appliance, will buy another if and when this one wears out.
