Julia Child let people in on the Cuisinart secret, and so did James Beard. They were among the first culinary experts to hail the food processor as a revolutionary kitchen appliance when it was introduced to America in 1973 by late Cuisinart founder Carl Sontheimer. They saw the food processor as a quick and easy way to make fine food and healthy dishes.
With the company under management from Conair Corporation since 1989, its legacy is alive and well. Today, Cuisinart is a universally recognized name, endorsed by culinary connoisseurs such as Jacques Pépin.
The prestigious Cuisinart brand is not limited to food processors. Plugged or unplugged, nobody covers the kitchen like Cuisinart. The company is a full kitchen resource with a wide array of products preferred by chefs and favored by consumers.
I wanted just an imersion blender but they only had this one. I bought it & thought I wouldn't use any of the attachments but I was wrong! The chop attachment is great when you have only a tiny bit of something to chop & don't want to get out your big food processor.
I purchased this for its versatility thinking it would be great to have an emersion blender that also attached to a small chopper and whipping head. I was quickly disappointed when the first time I used it with each attachment, the power end of the stick stripped out the attachments so nothing would turn anymore. It ultimately went in the garbage. Good idea but lousy engineering
My first Cuisinart immersion blender lasted 5 years and I used it nearly every day. I use the immersion stick and food processor parts much more than the whisk, but it has come in handy a few times for whipping cream or egg whites. I learned to be careful that the motor part was securely locked to the immersion stick or food processor and to give it a short buzz to make sure it was locked securely before using. I eventually did strip the gears, but after 5 years of good use. I promptly went and bought another
I love my Smart Stick set. I use it quite frequently for both chopping and blending my soups and sauces. I don't use the whisk much because usually if I need to whip something, I end up using my stand mixer. With the 16 oz beaker, and the immersion blender, I've also made my own ice cream milkshakes.
The immersion blender is powerful and sharp. It's the best when I'm making a creamy soup like butternut squash. I highly recommend this set
I use this blender quite a bit. I have even lent it to family and friends and they love it. I have never had any problems with the blender. I love have the ability to chop just what I need and not getting my large food processor out. I would recommend this product.
This product was great as a mixer, for mixing protien shakes (no ice), or soups, when new. It never really worked well for chopping things like nuts etc. After a cou[ple years the motor went bust. Customer care for cuisinart is extremely poor. I would buy a Kitchen Aid instead!
My mom bought this for me for christmas a few years ago. We took it out of the box over the holiday and played with it in the kitchen a few times. She loved it so much, she kept it and ordered an additional for me to be sent directly to my house. This thing does it all. Perfect for the smaller jobs when you don't want to lug out the big food processor
would this be a good choice to grind spices or coffee or would a single use tool be a more powerful and reliable selection?

Best Answer:A single use tool is going to be the better choice here. Especially for your coffee. In order to acheive the grind required to produce the best cup of coffee or espresso, you really should be using a conical burr coffee grinder. They are also designed not to give off quite as much heat so that you do not risk scorching the bean during grinding which can lead to a bitter cup of coffee. I have attached a couple of options below. I have also attached an excellent option for an herb mill that will mince your herbs without bruising or tearing them and thus preserving their full flavor
