5.0 out of 5 stars Ah hah, I'm all shook up!, August 15, 2006
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.

Happy Blending!

Ciao!

Is this cordless? There seems to be 2 different pictures in the multiple pic enlarge group? One silver flat top & one white with a right angle 110 cord.
thanks

Mine is a 110volt model and unless they have changed the specs on it, it's still a 110volt model.

Happy Blending!

I just tried mine on cream, and gave it a minute without aerating it enough. It produced butter. I'd say it'll whip *just fine* but is so powerful you have to be careful.

People still use non stick pots? Anyway, anyone is still around, can it safely be used on glass pots which I use (or sometimes ceramic coated). Thanks.

Hi,
I just bought my Cuisinart Immersion Hand Blender after reading all of these great reviews. Yours keeps sticking in my mind because I really want to start eating vegetables (I don't like them) and thought I might like broccoli soup. Is your recipe one you would share? Have a great day!
Rebecca
