Heating element is poor and the stir function does next to nothing
31 August 2015
Summary: Inconveniently, the motor broke during the second use, about two weeks after the return policy ended. Heating element is poor and the stir function does next to nothing. Don't waste your money.
Summary: We bought this like everyone else to make soup at home. The smell of plastic people have complained about is actually the brushes in the mother burning up. This also explains why so many have died after light use.
Summary: This was given to me as a gift. I'm an avid soup maker so it was perfect for me. It worked perfectly and made amazing soup. However, the third time I used it, the motor blew. I called Cuisinart and refused to do anything since I was 1 day past the 30 days.
Summary: Got one for Christmas and it worked 4 times before breaking completely and not working at all. My brother also got one and had not used it yet so it said I could have it. This one, being brand new, never turned on once. Now I'm stuck with 2 brand new, giant blenders that don't work.
Weak heating, weak blending, motor burns out after minimal use

Summary: This combination of a weak heater and a weak blender is apparently all that is needed to make some yummy and healthy soup, but unfortunately the blender motor is fatally unreliable: on only the fifth use the motor started to make a burning metal smell (and the heating wasn't even on).
Right from the beginning this thing smelled like something was burning

Summary: Right from the beginning this thing smelled like something was burning. I let it go since it had good reviews and thought that it might be since it's new, i don't know i guess I was trying to be optimistic. Well it stopped working completely two months later and the burning smell never went away.
Summary: A bad blender! I've have had to replace the base of the pitcher twice as the point at which it contacts the base breaks very easily. As far a blending, I'll give it a C grade. It tends to leave large chunks of whatever it is you're trying to blend.
