After reading some of the reviews here, I was pretty much set on the similarly priced (one c-note) Kitchen Aid so I went to my local department store to look around and a bright and bubbly teenage sales clerk came up and asked me if I needed help. I almost said no (I can read the box myself) but instead decided not to exercise age discrimination and asked if she had any recommendations for blenders. Surprisingly, she said "Yes, I tested a bunch of them for a Christmas present for my dad a few months ago and the Cuisinart was definitely the best.Read more ›
The product design is excellent. The attachments fit securely onto the motor base without the need to twist or lock. The buttons are very easy to clean, and they have been thoughtfully arranged for ease of use. The motor unit is very compact, so it takes up about half the space my old Oster did. The glass blender jar is very sturdy and leakproof, but I wonder about the durability of the plastic processor attachment.
For a serious cook who deals with large quantities and frequent demands on an appliance, it's probably better to have separate pieces. But as a casual home cook for two, I love its design, efficiency, and power.
I have done many things with the SmartPower Duet: I've made deliciously smooth shakes (including one with rum for a party - it was a hit), I've made amazing salsa, I've made gazpacho. For some of these, I used the recipe book that comes with the machine. There are a lot of good recipes, for sure, but I found it even more helpful that the recipes give you helpful hints about how to use the appliance the best way - like, which ingredients to add first, instead of just shoving everything in.
Just last night I made a pasta salad with about twenty ingredients, most of which had to be chopped or minced or sliced, so I used the food processor with the chopper to pulverize the garlic and other spices into a nice smooth blend (thus avoiding the dreaded clumps of pungent garlic). Then, I took the spices out and added red and green peppers and other vegetables and chopped them up coarsely, like salsa. Then I put the slicer attachment on to the food processor and sliced perfectly thin slices of cucumber and red onion. I added this to some pasta, provolone cheese, pepperoni slices, and some olive oil, and voila, I had a great pasta salad in less than half of the time it would have taken me to prepare all of those veggies by hand.
I certainly haven't had any complaints about the workmanship.Read more ›

My mom bought this blender for me about 6 months ago. The blender worked fine at first, it isn't the best quality, it still leaves chunks of seeds and ice. Read morePublished 29 days ago by yaaas
Motor is loud but using it for long periods will also give you a burnt electrical smell. They say this is 'normal'. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
