Ah hah, I'm all shook up!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cuisinart CSB-76BC SmartStick 200-Watt Immersion Hand Blender, Brushed Chrome (Kitchen)Well ok, maybe I am not all shook up so much as BLENDED up. I purchased this immersion blender after my older no name brand unit purchased at Wally World died in the middle of blending a pot of hot soup. I like that you can wash the blenders blade assembly in the dishwasher and the stainless steel shaft is not stained like so many of the ALL PLASTIC models. Another thing I love is the power of the unit and the sharpness of the blades; they will reduce a pot of cream of broccoli soup to a smooth consistency in nothing flat.
Oh and when I say broccoli soup folks, I MEAN broccoli soup. I put nearly two bunches of steamed broccoli in my soup and I only chunk it prior to blending with the immersion blender. This blender will puree` the soup to a perfect creamy texture in nothing flat. (Reserve a few pieces of the chunked broccoli to add back to the soup for texture purposes) I have also used it on my potato and asparagus soups with equally great results.
If you are looking for an immersion blender with lots of power and a "NO STAIN" Stainless Steel shaft then IMO, you cannot go wrong with this model from Cusinart.

Thanks for your review! Could anyone tell me if this is powerful enough to whip heavy cream and to whip egg whites to peaks?

No. The CSB-77 comes with one though.

You can get a bad one in the bunch and this is true with ANYTHING you purchase. Thankfully Amazon has a great return policy so I'm sure they took good care of you in that department. Oh and mine is still going strong blending my cream soups to perfection!

If this item whips cream and egg whites, why buy the other model with attachments? This not a facetious remark. Thanks.

Wondering if the blender you described and gave such raves about, does it scratch the bottom of the pot as you blend?? For instance in a non-stick pot??

Yes it will because the attachment is made of stainless steel.
