5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet!, August 2, 2006
This review is from: Cuisinart CSB-76BC SmartStick 200-Watt Immersion Hand Blender, Brushed Chrome (Kitchen)
This is the third hand blender I have owned, and is by far the most solid, smoothest running and easiest to clean. The brushed chrome construction looks great and is also easier to clean than plastic versions. Handy features like detachable base, included mixing cup and extra long mixer are thoughtful and useful. The motor is smooth and powerful - it is the Audi V8 of the hand blender world. For the quality, brand and power, $30 is an absolute steal.

The comparison to an Audi V8 is one (I thought) only my husband could make. To be fair to Cuisinart, the costs of ownership are far less!

It doesn't. I called customer service from the Cuisinart website. Not 220 V compatible. :-(

Greetings: This review is from 2006. It's now 2012. Do you still think it's worthy of five stars?

Thanks.

Did you ever get a response about whether they still loved their SmartStick? Seems like most reviews are good but a few horrible ones. Looking to buy one but want to make sure I don't get junk. Let me know! Thanks!

Hi- sorry to sound so dumb but how does an immersion blender work better than a small electric hand mixer.? I have found conflicting advice online so i'd like to hear from actual users. It looks more convenient and easier to use but does it blend or mix better? Thanks for any advice about this.

Also, any recommended brands or products. Shopping for Christmas. Thanks!

I use the immersion blender for quick things like mixing breakfast shakes, salad dressing, apple butter, and even slowcooked beans. It's great for making something smooth. Because of the reviews that discussed over heating the motor, I do not use it in things that are too thick or too hard. I don't use it to chop ice or hard fruit.

On the flip side, I would still use my hand mixer for cookie dough or cake mix, omelette's with raw vegetables, and anything I think would take extended mixing time or strength.

I picked up one at Costco that has a chopper included, haven't used it yet but the whole thing was $29.99 so couldn't beat the price.

I find this blender most useful for puréeing. It saves having to put batches in a blender or food processer. I use one all the time for making soups.
