1.0 out of 5 stars same plastic gear problem as others, July 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cuisinart CSB-75PAP Smart Stick 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blender, Papaya (Kitchen)
This is the second time I've experienced this problem. First was with a cheaper model (still a cuisinart immersion blender). So, I got this one figuring it would last longer. After 1.5 months the same thing happened (the drive shaft linking the blade to the motor strips). It looks to be a very common problem. Can't return it to Amazon (it's after their allowed return date), and I know from other experiences that my friends have had with Cuisinart that returning even a defective item is extremely time consuming and typically requires original packaging (who keeps that stuff?).

Note that this was with typical use... i.e., the first time it jammed on a frozen blueberry, and the second time on a dried date, both for breakfast smoothies. It's ridiculous to have such a nice blender with such a weak connecting link between the motor and blade.

"frozen blueberry, and the second time on a dried date" There is the problem. These are not food processors, which too, could jam on such items.

I've been searching for an immersion blender for simple mixing tasks for my wife, but time and time again I see posts like this "stripped gears". I was wondering if the products were that bad or if it was, as it usually is, operator abuse. This answers my question.

How so? The product manual includes a recipe for a smoothie made with frozen blueberries, and another with frozen strawberries.
