same plastic gear problem as others
, July 8, 2013
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.
