Summary: it's fine. as an emersion blender it's a tad thick, the food processor attachment is 50/50 as to whether it's useful or useless… it's not a substitute for an actual food processor at all. the whisk attachment is….. useless unless you have a really deep container and not much liquid in it. After a year I replaced it with a victorinox bamix, which is a far better immersion blender.
Excerpt: I have strong mixed feelings about the Cuisinart Smart Stick PowerTrio High-Torque Hand Blender. One one hand, it's extremely convenient when I need to quickly shred cheese, whip up a quick guacamole, chop garlic or whip some cream and don't want to hassle with pulling out the bigger appliances. It has plenty of power for such a handy little device too.
Summary: I wasn't very pleased with this. The chopper works about the best. The slicer worked okay, but the vegetable has to be hard and it didn't slice it to the end. The wisk was worthless. I tried to use it in cake batter and it shot the batter all over my kitchen. There is no pulse or lower speed, so I couldn't use it. I ended up buying a cheap mixer. I didn't even try the blender. I am going to return this.
Summary: Purchased this hand blender more than 1 year ago and after moderate use (at least once weekly), it's still kicking. I mostly use it for the blender stick. There are some pros and cons... Pros: Solid, sturdy and powerful product useful for smaller tasks. Cons: Difficult to clean certain pieces, such as the bottom of the stick blender. Also the whisk is a little thinner and flimsy as I would like it to be.
Excerpt: I love this blender, mostly for the sleek design and ease of use. I have had many other bulky blenders and they always seem to break or leak. Not this one. I would even give these out as gifts I love it so much. It is so easy to clean as well because of the design. My standard blender is so hard to clean and usually never comes out perfectly clean. Not this one, SO easy to clean. This is a well designed blender that is so versatile.
Summary: I have owned a few of this type of device--immersible blenders. This is excellent. I have not used the other accessories, but my wife will. I use it for blending protein shakes when I travel. This plus a tumbler and a hotel ice machine lets me make shakes in my hotel room.
