Summary: This unit is useful - in theory: terrible in practice. It will do a decent job of chopping small quantities of veggies, it will (eventually)turn almonds into almond butter, and it can puree a small amount of soup. Good to have on hand for small jobs. It is extremely noisy and earplugs should be used when the motor is set on high. The unit dances across the counter when chopping hard food, such as nuts, which can be a safety hazard.
Summary: I use it for shredding cheese and vegt.Blending smoothies.There are more possibilities,but the toolbox was defected and broke.Its easy to operate and runs smoothly,otherwise Cuisnart customer service was easy to contact and replacing the part.
Summary: I purchased this for myself a year ago so that I can make smoothies and shakes. I wanted the food processor to help with making sauces and dips when cooking. So far I haven't had any problems and I absolutely love it. I don't use the food processor as much but it was great from some dips. The blender I used practically every day to make smoothies or frozen drinks and its so easy to use.
Summary: After diligently researching blender food processors, I chose this one. What a mistake. Day one it came out of the box not working. The drive shaft spins but does not engage the blade for either appliance. It is loud, but realistically I expected that after all it is a blender/food processor. Returning it TODAY SO DISAPPOINTED!!
Summary: I've been using it for about a year and it still works great. I make smoothies a couple times a week with no problems, and I use the food processor to chop veggies and make salsa. The plastic lid on the food processor cracked, but I think that was my fault for trying to put in on wrong. Also, the plastic ring on the bottom of the blender is starting to come off, so I'll have to deal with that soon.
Summary: Bought this blender on Wednesday April 28 and had to send it back on Saturday!!! My wife and I make smoothies everyday and our other blender crapped out, so being a professional chef I thought Cuisinart was a good product...boy was I wrong! After literally two smoothies the machine simply would not work. How could a blender not make a smoothie? Please oh please do not buy this blender!
Summary: My blender motor burned out after about 25 smoothies. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Will never buy this brand again. Waste of money. (I always blend with a lot of liquids.) I am very upset. It's too late to return the machine. This machine can not handle ice or frozen fruit.
Summary: I wanted a single machine that could do both so i ordered this one. The blender works pretty nicely. I can make smoothies and purees quickly. The glass jar is heavy which i don't like so much. The chopper/grinder is good and does the job well. The shredder disc works two ways and I have shredded bunch of carrots and it worked well. The based of the chopper is separate and I think you need to be careful not to wash it.
Summary: I love this product. I purchased it few months ago and using it every day. Blender is very good, it does great job including crushing ice. And I love food processor too, I use it for everything. One of my best purchases definitely!!
